Episode 4.21 All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone

Overview:

Dan must face the harsh consequences of his decision to murder Keith as Karen and Haley’s pregnancies complicate the lives of Nathan and the graduating seniors of Tree Hill High. Lucas wrestles with his post-high school options, and Peyton and Brooke prepare to spend the summer in Los Angeles together.

Recap:

While "Lightning Crashes" is playing in the background, Nathan and Haley are rushing into the hospital because she is having their baby. At the same time, doctors try to get Karen back, since she has just flat lined. And finally DD – Diabolic Dan makes up his mind: he turns himself in. Yep, prison time is kind of approaching.
While doctors are trying to save Karen, she sees Keith, who is in a beautiful garden with a little girl. Their daughter, actually. Keith tells Karen she has to go back, without worrying about anything: he will wait for her and their little daughter. In the meantime, Haley gives birth to James Lucas Scott.
Two weeks later.
Karen visits Keith at the cemetery, holding her little daughter, whose name is Lily Rose Scott.
Meanwhile, the last high school party is approaching but Nathan and Haley don’t want to leave their little James. Deb assures them she will look after him and, even though they are not that thrilled to leave their son to a former drug addicted, they end up giving in.
Party time! It turns out the one who throws the party was none other than… Rachel. Yep, Reckless Red Hair is back in town and Brooke is very happy about it.
Lucas tells Peyton he doesn’t want her to go to Los Angeles (she is leaving tomorrow with Brooke, as planned) but he does know he has to let her go. Peyton assures him she is going to love him forever, no matter what. He does think the same thing.
Someone else is back in town… Shelly, who kind of ended the whole Clean Team thing. It turns out Shelly is eager to get Mouth back in her life but Mouth doesn’t seem that ready, even though he tells her he did miss her very much since they were apart.
Brooke is sad because high school has really finished; Lucas assures her that he does think she’ll do great things in her life.
Since Nathan and Haley keeps on calling Deb up to check in on James, CG – Crazy Grandmother unplugs the phone. Of course Haley and Nathan rush home and, after talking to Deb, they figure they were a bit too anxious.
All the girls – Peyton, Brooke, Rachel, Shelly, Haley and Bevin – dance to a Spice Girl’s song. Elsewhere, Skills is singing the same song, under Lucas’ stunned eyes. Later, Brooke and Goldilocks are happy to say their friendship did make it. Meanwhile, Lucas and Nathan are wondering whether they should pay a visit to Dan. Nathan tells Lucas he is sorry he didn’t believe him when he told him Dan had killed Keith. Good-boy Lucas assures him it’s fine. Actually, he wishes he was wrong.
What a night for Mouth! He punches Shelly’s ex boyfriend who was insulting her and he does manage to kiss Brooke – after waiting like forever and a day. "I have always wanted to do this!", he claims. Brooke is a bit stunned and can’t help but say to Chase: "Do you see what happens when you leave me alone?". Then, Brooke tells Chase she really appreciate the fact he lets her say goodbye to all her friends, but he was the one she wanted to finish the night with. He has definitely the same opinion.
Lucas and Nathan decide not to go and see their father Dan. Ever… Someone else decides to pay him a visit, though. Karen. She tells him that Lily will certainly know that her father loved his younger brother very much. And that brother took him from her (Lily) for her entire life. Then Karen spits on the window between her and Dan and goes away. Dan tries to hang up himself but he is not that successful.
After having sex, Chase and Brooke have a serious talk. She tells him he has become a really important part of her life, so she is going to miss him very much. Chase assures her he will be waiting for her, until she comes back to him.
Haley can’t believe she won’t see Lucas anymore since it’s the end of high school, but Lucas has interesting news: Whitey offered to help him with the new team and Lucas agreed to join him. Haley is really happy because she did not want to lose her best friend.
Fresh news for Reckless Red Hair either: Brooke is happy to tell her she did graduate after all. Rachel tells Brooke that she has been in a lot of school, but she is very happy she ended up graduating from Tree High. Brooke smiles and can’t help but agree.
It’s midnight and the gang sees the new seniors celebrate the beginning of their senior year. "Uh, high school kids. Let’s get out of here, you guys", Miss Davis says. And Skills does know where they should hang out: the river court!
It’s time for a "Hos over Bros" match and Haley does manage to do a free throw. Yay. There is a promise in the air. "In four years, we will be right back here, done with college or wherever we go, right?".Then, Nathan asks Lucas if he is ready for a re-match, since in the last one-on-one Nathan kind of lost.
And the others sit on the benches near the court, all together. There is music playing in the background, so we can’t hear what they’re saying, we can just watch their expressions, smiles and yells. Meanwhile, Nathan asks Lucas if he is sure to be up for the one-on-one, "old man". Lucas has no doubts. "I could do this forever, little brother". They smile, the music is still playing and the match can get started.

Episode 4.17 It Gets the Worst At Night

Overview:

When Mouth and Rachel’s road trip goes wrong, the other teens go out to their rescue. While on the trip, Nathan and Haley get a second chance to enjoy their Prom and Peyton and Lucas decide to take their relationship to the next level. Finally, Brooke reveals the truth about the stolen calculus exam to Haley.

Recap:

Skills receives a text message from Mouth. He is in Honey Grove and he needs ass…istance! Yep, under Haley’s suggestion, it turns out Peyton, Lucas, Brooke, Haley, Nathan and Skills are heading out for a road trip. Haley is positive Mouth is fine. "I mean, it’s Mouth, how much trouble could he actually get into?!"
After Tutor Wife’s words, we see a close up of Mouth, who is actually in jail.
The road trip can get started. Our heroes read their old yearbook and Lucas points out Peyton’s signature on his sophomore yearbook. "You know how hard I worked to get my yearbook in front of her, and then she signs her damn name I was crushed!" Everyone giggles. Then, Haley brings up the hot words her sister Taylor wrote to Lucas, who, on the other hand, wonders what she wrote in Nathan’s yearbook. Other laughs, which are done as soon as Skills reads Jimmy’s words in Lucas’ yearbook. Anyway, Haley claims they have to let bad thoughts go.
Meanwhile, in prison, Mouth helps one of the guys in jail win a chess match, then he starts talking about Brooke, Rachel and Shelly. The jail guys are definitely interested, they actually stare at Mouth as if he was a soap opera starring.
Major problem. While Brooke is driving, the car broke up. Luckily a tour bus stops by. And it turns out it is… Chris Keller’s, who, as soon as he learns Haley is pregnant, can’t wait to claim to Nathan: "Dude, totally not mine!"
In Tree Hill, since Karen thinks someone might have broken into her house, she calls Dan up, who takes care of here.
Nathan and Chris have a "boy" talk in which Chris suggests Nathan takes it easy. The next morning, Chris’ tour bus finally arrives in Honey Grove and they bail Mouth out. He got arrested for sleeping in the park. Since the car won’t be ready until the next day and since there is Honey Grove Prom that night, they decide it’s time they had the best prom ever. "So we are going to crash Honey Grove Prom?", asks Lucas. "Why not?" is the only answer.
Chris asks Mouth what happened with Rachel. Mouth tells him things were great but he couldn’t help but think he wasn’t interesting enough. So Mouth went out for a walk and when he got back Rachel wasn’t there anymore. He found only a photo of Mouth and Rachel; behind the photo was written "I could’ve loved the boy in the picture", the same sentence Mouth told her when there was the whole Brooke’s flyers campaign against Rachel, a lot of time ago.
Haley offers Brooke to move in their old apartment, since she and Nathan are going to stay with Deb until the next autumn. Brooke is happy to accept and tells Peyton she can move in with her, if she wants. Brooke also says that even though she claimed they could never be friends like before maybe… they could be better. They hug.
Honey Grove Prom is great and our heroes enjoy themselves.
After telling each other they love, Peyton and Lucas have sex. Later, Brooke tells Haley the truth about the whole stolen exam thing, and then she, Mouth and Skills walk in on Peyton and Lucas who are still in bed. Brooke can’t help but feel hurt and walks away. Poor Davis. She meets Chris, who starts hitting on her, but they end up talking all night. Yep, Wise President has definitely changed a lot.
The next morning, Peyton catches up with Brooke, asking if she is okay. Brooke nods but claims that, if she is moving in with her, they have to come up with a system against this kind of surprise. Peyton can’t help but agree. Then, Haley catches up with Brooke and says her she forgives him.
The car is ready and the road trip back to Tree Hill can get started.
In the meantime, fresh news concerning Abby and… shoving points, as well… Stay tuned!
