Episode 3.8 The Worst Day Since Yesterday

Posted by Amy with No Comments

Overview:

As the town readies for the Ravens’ first basketball game, Lucas worries that his head and heart aren’t in it. Nathan accuses Lucas of being the Ravens’ weak link. Peyton and Haley mend fences to support Brooke in a time of need. When the mayoral race tightens, Dan resorts to a smear campaign.

Recap:

The town is celebrating the first Ravens game of the upcoming season. But Brooke has nothing to celebrate about. She confesses her major Chris Keller mistake to Haley and Peyton. Of course, Lucas isn’t answering her calls. So Brooke asks Peyton to talk to him for her. At least Brooke has her clothes line. That should at least cheer her up.
Surprisingly enough, Nathan is peeved at Chris Keller for sleeping with Brooke, but it has nothing to do with hurting Lucas. He can’t believe Keller just disregards people’s feelings so easily. Karen Roe does a little time campaigning on the radio. Someone named "Keith" calls in. It’s clearly Dan who asks how she can be in business with his wife…er…the wife of her opponent. Karen handles the idiot with style. She says that she forgives her business partner for her lack of taste and hopes that her business skills are better than her skills in picking a mate. Karen wins this round.
Meanwhile, Brooke is thrilled with her line of clothing until she asks her boss when she gets paid for her designs. Turns out she gets nothing but a ten percent discount. She signed a waiver when she began her job at the store and the entire line belongs to them. Things go from bad to worse — when Brooke misses school on game day she isn’t allowed to cheer in the game that night. But there’s nothing much to cheer about anyway.
Depressed, Lucas paints his front door black. Peyton comes by to tell him how miserable Brooke is, but he’s not having any of it. He’s angry on the outside but he’s just bummed on the inside. Lucas’ heart isn’t into the big game. He’s seriously moping over the Brooke thing. Karen reminds him not to let his heart get in the way of the one thing he loves the most. Lucas heads down to the river court to practice and gets a visit from Daddy Dan. Dan tells him to pass the ball to Nathan or he’ll tell Whitey all about his heart condition.
Peyton agrees to finally make up with Haley. First the two agree to help out their sad friend Brooke. But later they team up and tell Chris Keller where to go, and Peyton even gets to slap the guy. Later, finally Peyton admits to Haley that she’s tired of everyone leaving. And she’s been taking her anger out on her. But Peyton also admits that she’s happy that she’s actually come back, and welcomes her friend home…finally.
Dan hits the radio waves after Karen and tries to tout his "Family Values" platform, with his faithful wife by his side. It all starts at home after all, good parenting and loving relationships. Deb even has a written statement that she has trouble actually reading out loud.
Brooke mopes and consoles herself at home with cake.
Chris comes to visit Dan, where Dan declares himself Keller’s biggest fan. He’s not into his music, but he’s pleased with the way Keller ruined Nathan’s marriage. Chris Keller just wants the 500 bucks Nathan owes him. Dan pays up but isn’t pleased that he’s bankrolling Haley’s next album. Suddenly, Dan wants to talk real money with Chris Keller.
Before the game, Nathan tells Lucas he knows about what happened with Brooke, and he needs to get it together before the game or don’t bother playing at all. Then he gives him the same advice Lucas gave him when Haley went out on the road, "Forgive her. She loves you." Of course, it was dripping with sarcasm and followed up with, "Doesn’t help much, does it?"
In the locker room before the big game, Whitey tells the team that he will be retiring after the season and he wants to go out a winner. Just as Lucas would have been motivated, Nathan comes up to him and tells him that if he screws the team he’ll be screwing Whitey too.
She arrives late to the game, and Dan’s angry because the family guy can’t enter without his lovely wife. Deb informs Dan that Karen’s coming up in the polls because Tree Hill residents find him egotistical and arrogant. Imagine that.
Chris Keller shows up at the game to sing the national anthem. Unfortunately he sticks around for the game and it makes Lucas crazy, so his already weak game is even more terrible. The Ravens lose their home opener. After the disaster of a game, Dan comes back to the locker room to yell at the team and especially to Nathan, who he even knocks around and throws up against the lockers just for fun.
After the game, Brooke finally leaves the apartment and heads over to talk to Lucas. But he takes one look at her and asks Rachel for a ride home. On the ride home Rachel rubs in the fact that the Ravens looked terrible. She told him so and he needs to move on. When he tells her he’s not hooking up with her, she tells him that she’s not hooking up with him and he can think about that on his long walk home. And she kicks the guy out of the car. Hopefully he brought his walking shoes. As he makes his way home, he stops by the river and tosses his heart medication into the water.
Brooke tells Peyton that her talk didn’t exactly happen with Lucas. Peyton tells her friend that she has something that will cheer her up. They head over to Suburban Filth and take back all of Brooke’s clothing–leaving only some very naked mannequins behind.
Nathan and Haley walk home from the game together. And Mouth comes to visit Karen after the game. He greets her at the door with, "Hi, Mayor Roe" and shows her the video he took on his cell phone of Dan’s little outburst in the locker room. Not very mayoral behavior, not very mayoral at all.

Episode 3.7 Champagne for My Real Friends, Real Pain for My Sham Friends

Posted by Amy with No Comments

Overview:

The fantasy draft dates begin, Lucas finds himself with Rachel and a very familiar setting. Brooke is on a double date with an unusual couple. Mouth and Peyton hang out again. And Peyton regrets the things she says to Ellie. Karen and Deb take the campaigning for mayor, to a new level, to bring down Dan. Nathan gets mad when Chris gets close to Haley.

Recap:

The boys are excited to find out about who picked them in the draft. Tim suggests that all the girls take out their draftees and then he finds out that he didn’t even make the draft. Lucas discovers that Brooke didn’t pick him, but Rachel did. Brooke attempts to explain how Rachel tricked her but the damage has already been done. Lucas is hurt.
Haley is beyond excited to go on her date with Nathan, but Brooke is disgusted by the idea of going on a date with Chris Keller.
Meanwhile, Rachel shows up at Lucas’ house for their date. The guy tells Rachel how he feels about Brooke and she agrees to change things up. Just as Lucas and Rachel head to Brooke’s house to officially trade him, they see her heading out on a double date with Nathan and Chris Keller. Poor Haley was so desperate to get that date with her husband she threatened violence if Brooke doesn’t go along with it. With much disgust and unhappiness, Brooke goes on the double date. So Lucas agrees to go on his date with Rachel — a workout at the river court.
Skills comes to pick up Bevin for their date, but her folks are out of town and she wants to stay in for the night. She wants to watch "The Notebook" — but he just wants to watch her.
Mouth takes Peyton on a very unusual date — to the old folk’s home. Seems Mouth has a little secret. He pays weekly visits to an old guy named Mel. And he reads to him. Peyton hits it off with Mel immediately but she finds his home depressing and convinces Mouth to spring the guy for a little fun.
On their double date, Nathan and Haley decide to visit the secluded beach location of their wedding, but much like their marriage, it’s destroyed. Bulldozers are busy developing the paradise that was once theirs. So the foursome agrees to go to the mall. The coincidence isn’t lost on Haley, though, and she is suddenly very sad on what was supposed to be the perfect date.
Lucas is astonished that Brooke would actually date that Chris Keller. He believes he and Brooke are destined to be together. The big date between Rachel and Lucas takes them to the river court with beer where they play a basketball drinking game that turns into strip basketball. Lucas is apprehensive and Rachel defies Lucas to call upon destiny and if Brooke is the one, to make the basket blindfolded. He does, but he takes off the blindfold to find a semi-naked Rachel.
Deb gets the idea to vandalize Dan’s giant and obnoxious campaign billboard that’s over the highway on the outside of town. Karen begrudgingly goes along with it. Once they begin, they have some fun, until they knock down the ladder and get stuck up at the top with no way to get down. But Deb comes up with a big idea. They take off some of their clothing and lasso the ladder so they can get down. When it’s all said and done, Karen vows not to sink to Dan’s level ever again. They end up tearing off the vandalism they climbed up on the billboard to do in the first place.
Even though he was pretty much conned into watching "The Notebook," Skills ends up getting into the romantic chick-flick. As the credits roll, he ends up getting a little depressed. And when Bevin offers to make out with him, he asks her if they can cuddle first. It’s nice to see that Skills isn’t afraid of his softer side. Later he tells his buddies about his evening and they tell him what’s really up. Looks like Skills got "Notebooked."
Peyton and Mouth take Mel to a race track and do the go car thing. Peyton is impressed with Mouth and his weekly buddy and tells him that Mel probably won’t forget their big night for awhile. But Mouth admits to his friend that Mel has Alzheimer’s disease and most likely won’t remember any of it. Mouth tells Peyton that Mel is his grandpa — he just doesn’t remember it. He calls Mouth Joe because that is his father’s name. The two had a falling-out and haven’t spoken since, so Mouth comes and visits him.
As their double date falls apart at the mall, Nathan plays video games and ignores his wife until Chris Keller makes a play for her. Everyone starts arguing and Brooke decides to take off. She didn’t want to be on the stupid date anyway.
As she attempts to flee the mall and the freakish double date, she storms past Suburban Filth, the store where she works, and she sees her designs in the window. She’s so happy she forgets she’s angry. The foursome head back to the girl’s apartment and celebrate Brooke’s newfound success.
When Lucas sees the partially nude Rachel at the river court, he tells her to get dressed. Rachel is disgusted. What’s up with all the guys in Tree Hill being tragically hung up on some girl? Lucas tells her that Brooke is the one for him. At that same time, while celebrating with Chris Keller, Brooke realizes that Lucas is the one for her. Rachel takes Lucas to Brooke’s house and she accuses him of making a late-night booty call. He tells her it’s just the opposite. He’s there to tell Brooke how he feels for once and for all.
When Peyton takes Mouth home she asks him why he keeps coming to see his grandpa when he’ll just forget. But Mouth tells her that he will remember and that Mel doesn’t have much more time, and besides, no one should die alone. Peyton admits to her friend that she is regretting sending Ellie away.
By the end of their double date, Haley admits to her husband that she had high expectations for their date. While Brooke and Chris Keller are distracted and celebrate over champagne, Haley takes Nathan up to the old rooftop and tells him that she wants to show him her prediction for the year. But he doesn’t want to see it — it’s a wish, and that’ll ruin it. Instead, he writes his own prediction and tells her that in one year they’ll check to see if his comes true. She continues to be bummed about the beach being gone, but Nathan gives her one of the little purple flowers from the location, telling her that it’s still there.
When Lucas finally arrives at Brooke’s doorstep to tell her that she is the one for him, he opens the door, and she is in bed with Chris Keller!

Episode 3.6 Locked Hearts and Hand Grenades

Posted by Amy with No Comments

Overview:

Brooke makes a "Fantasy Boy Draft," after all of the cheerleaders are fighting over the same guys. Haley and Peyton continue to argue over Nathan. Dan butts heads with Karen because the election is drawing nearer. Lucas is trying to keep up with the fast pace of basketball.

Recap:

Starts with Whitey cozzing for the team, and he sends them to the Gym for 16 laps in 60 seconds [something he calls suicide]. He’s like, "The way I see it, you kids owe this school a major debt. And you’ll find that payback is a bitch, and the currency is pain." Then the squabbles between Dan and Deb continue – Dan urinates in the pool before Deb goes in to swim – she had all the toilets on his side of the house blocked the previous night. Haley pretends to bump into Nathan in school so they could talk, about her being a cheerleader, and Nathan tells her she doesn’t have to. Also tells her he and Lucas were fighting about her [previous episode]. Brooke is still riled up about Lucas and Rachel together, even tho she orchestrated it. She finds him pinning up posters and apologizes for coming down on him when she found Rachel in his car, and told him she did have feelings for him.There’s a fight between two cheerleaders, and Whitey threatens Brooke that if there’s one more fight there won’t be any more cheerleading. So she comes up with the fantasy boy draft [all their fights were about boys]. The results of the draft don’t go Brooke’s way. Karen makes her first posters, they’re written on Roe Roe Roe Your Vote. Deb says they’re really original.Brooke gets caught in class passing a note to Peyton, and the teacher wants it and Rachel comes to her rescue and looks all heroic. Later that day at practice Lucas looks really beat and drags behind everyone else. The team gets mad at him. At Chris and Haley’s practices, he’s disappointed in her. His exact words: "It sucked so bad, I’m wondering if it’s possible to unhear a song." He tells her until she deals with things with Nathan her music will continue to suffer. Rachel fixes everyone up with boys for the draft, and they like her even more. Brooke wishes she’d die of TSS. Lucas goes back to the gym to practise on his own, and Dan finds him there and tells him to talk his mum out of the race. Haley researches and finds out that Lucas is sluggish because of his HCM medication.Chris finds Haley pinning names of musicians up a wall, and tells her she might become great too if she stopped running from her emotions and started instead writing from it. Lucas tries to tell Whitey why he’s been lagging behind, but can’t. Comes up with some cock-a-mimmy story about just being out of shape. Whitey rides the team even harder, and they hate Lucas even more. Peyton tells Haley she’s picking Nathan.It’s finally time for the draft picks. Boyfriend by Ashlee Simpson is playing. Haley tells Payton she can pick Nathan all she wants, but she knows they were meant to be together and sooner or later he’s gonna know it too. Karen tells Lucas she’s gonna have to work harder if she wants to beat Dan, and he decides to do that too – goes to the gym to make 16 laps in 60 seconds. At the draft things don’t go Brooke’s way and Peyton picks Mouth, Brooke – Chris [to screw over Rachel thinking Haley will pick Lucas], Rachel picks Lucas [she convinced Bevin to give her her number 3 spot for Rachel's number 5 spot], Haley – Nathan and Bevin – Skills. Dan plays dirty politics against Karen, and she retaliates.

Episode 3.5 A Multitude of Casualties

Posted by Amy with No Comments

Overview:

The Ravens begin basketball practice. New team captain Nathan clashes with Lucas over Haley, and a new cheerleader sets her sights on Lucas. Elsewhere, Dan’s mayoral bid takes a surprising turn when an unlikely opponent emerges, Karen.

Recap:

The episode begins at the gym where Dan [I think acting as mayor] is introducing the midnight madness, just before basketball season begins. After he counts down the cheerleaders come out dancing. The scene changes to the rest of the team in the changing rooms, where Lucas is badgering Nathan about Haley. This starts up a fight. And just as Dan is introducing them saying "… Your Tree Hill Ravens" the fight spills over into the gym. The first people to show are of course Nate and Luke so Whitey goes over to Dan "Damn your sperm, Danny."The scene then flashes back to two days earlier with Mouth handing out fliers for the first official practice for assistant sports caster Midnight Friday. Haley sees Nathan and wants to talk about the kiss, he tells her it was a nice moment but it was over. Brooke and Peyton are trying out new cheerleaders. They have a spot. None of the girls really match up [they're real airheads, like cheerleaders are rumored to be], until one comes who’s even better than current cheerleaders. Her name is Rachel, and Brooke remembers her as Pamela Anderson from the masquerade party in Episode 4. She even comes with her own music, a sexy Ying Yang twins song. Peyton is impressed [Rachel even quoted John Lennon at the end of her routine], Brooke just sees a skank. They take her anyway.Whitey calls Nathan and makes him captain. Brooke is pushing Lucas to see other chicks, and mistakenly points Rachel out. She’s not amused. Chris runs into Haley at the music store and convinces her to work with him again. She says no and he goes over to report to Nathan. Deb is still making things difficult for Dan. Rachel bonds with all the other cheerleaders. She sees Lucas and goes over to confirm their date. He tells her he just asked her out to make Brooke jealous. She says she doesn’t mind. At practice, Nathan and Lucas’s tug wars continue, and Nathan makes him sit out the game. Only one person, a girl called Gigi shows up for Mouth’s tryouts. Peyton runs into Ellie who invites her to a concert. They bond. Over at Ellie’s room Peyton sees a really good drawing of her by Ellie and flies off the handle about lies.Brooke runs back home and forces Haley to join the cheer squad [she filled in once in Season 2], because she feels Rachel is taking over her life. Ellie goes to Peyton’s to try to explain and leaves her the article Peyton got mad about to read. Lucas while out with Rachel on their date, passes her near Brooke’s work place and Rachel gets her all riled up. Nathan goes to Haley’s and tells her she should work with Chris because he was good for her music. He tells her it’s about trust. This is her chance to prove herself to him.It turns out they’re retiring Dan’s jersey at the Midnight Madness that night, which Dan thinks will be good for PR. Karen goes over to the school, sees Dan at work running his campaign and decides to run against him. The cheerleaders are late and it turns out Rachel took them out for a treat. Just as Brooke and Rachel are having it out Haley shows up in cheer outfits and Brooke tells Rachel to go to hell. They dint need her any more. Other members say they do. So Haley is in, as is Rachel.Midnight Madness has started. Whitey introduces Dan, and while Dan is talking about running unopposed, it comes out that Karen is opposing him and Whitey endorses her. Dan is not jazzed. He anyway introduces the cheerleaders etc [this is where the episode started]. Only this time, the fight is not just Nathan vs. Lucas, Brooke also starts one with Rachel on the stage. Later on Whitey lets everyone have and makes Nathan and Lucas co-captains. Now they’ll either make the team or break, but they’re gonna do it together. Brooke finds Rachel naked in the back seat of Lucas’s car and cozies. Lucas goes to ask her what she’s mad about since it was what she wanted, and she says "I wanted you to fight for me. I wanted you to say that there is no one else that you’d ever be with and that you’d rather be alone than without me." She then goes over and punches Rachel in the face.Peyton goes to her room and read Ellie’s article. Then she goes to Ellie’s motel to see her and finds her gone. She laments in her podcasts, and we see Ellie going into an MRI machine listening to it. Haley goes over to Chris’s to work, and Nathan on his morning jog just happens to see it. The episode ends with him jogging away.
