  • Perfect end to season 3.

  • Season 3 Finale

    By GilmoreFan86, Mar 18, 2012

  • Weakest of the three season finales yet and not a good way to possibly a end an otherwise great show.

  • A very over the top episode but exciting ending

    By ARTFUL_GRL, May 05, 2006

  • This episode was preety pitiful and extraordinarily disappointing. There was not a lot of plot devleopment, except someone now knows that Dan is a MURDERER! and wrote it on his wall!

    • Lucas: Oh, I'm sorry princess. I was looking for my friend Haley. Wow, did it really take this much stuff to make you look this? Haley: No! Everybody got ready in here, including Rachel and Brooke, for some reason. Hi! Lucas: All right. Wow, you really look beautiful. Haley: Thank you. Lucas: So, your parents really aren't coming. Haley: No, they... I invited them, and they said, "sorry, honey, we've been to your wedding once before, and it was a little boring". Anyway, I'll just give myself away, that's fine. Lucas: Or... I could do it. If you'll have me. Haley: Really? Luke, that would be perfect! Lucas: Okay. Haley: Thank you. Lucas: But you know what, I gotta be honest with you. I could never officially give you away, you know that? I could never give away my best friend.

    • Lucas: Hey pretty girl. Brooke: Hey. Lucas: What’s going on? Brooke: Nothing. Lucas: Come on. Nobody loves a wedding more than Brooke Davis. What’s up? Brooke: I’d just appreciate if you wouldn’t talk to Peyton today. Lucas: You’re kidding, right? This is a wedding. We’re all in the wedding party. We’re all friends here, Brooke! Brooke: You know, could you do me a favour, just once, and put me above your precious Peyton and do something that I ask you to do? Thanks! Lucas: Woah. What’s happened? Brooke: We had a fight. And I’m stressed out about my speech and Haley’s dress, and I’m late. I’m late to get ready, and I’m sorry. Lucas: Come here. It’s okay. Brooke: You look nice. (Brooke leaves) Lucas: Weddings!

    • Dan: You're closer than 100 feet. Deb: Just paying my respects. Dan: You know, everyone thinks of Keith as the perfect guy but they're wrong. Deb: No, they're not, Dan. Keith is a hero. Dan: He tried to kill me. That's right. He's the one who tried to burn me in the dealership fire. So I guess the hero got what was coming to him, after all.

    • Brooke: Now I know how this dress looks like on a witch. Peyton: Go Brooke yourself.

    • Haley: You're good in a crisis. Nathan: Nah, I don't know about that. Haley: No, you are. Good thing, too. Especially since I have something I have to tell you...

    Notes (16)

    • The use of the Led Zeppelin song "Babe I'm Gonna Leave You" in this episode was a significant event, as no network television show had ever been given the rights to use a Led Zeppelin song.

    • For this entire season, the show was nominated for the 2006 Teen Choice Award for "Choice Drama/Action/Adventure TV Show". Plus, Chad Michael Murray (Lucas) was nominated for "Choice TV Actor-Drama/Action/Adventure", and Sophia Bush (Brooke) was nominated for "Choice TV Actress-Drama/Action/Adventure".

    • The original cut of this episode was 60 minutes long according to Mark Schwahn.

    • On the season 3 DVD set, there is an audio commentary featuring Mark Schwahn (Creator/Executive Producer/Writer/Director), Sophia Bush (Brooke Davis), Joe Davola (Executive Producer), Lee Norris (Marvin "Mouth" McFadden), and Lindsay Wolfington (Music Supervisor).

    • When the song for Nathan and Haley's first dance is played, Haley asks how Nathan chose it. He says, "I had a little help." This is because the viewers got to vote to choose which song got to be played for this scene. The choices were: Gavin Degraw - "More Than Anyone"; Ray Lamontague - "Hold You In My Arms" and Trespassers William - "Lie In Sound".

    Trivia (17)

    • When Lucas comes to Haley to offer to give her away, she mentions that everyone got ready in that room "including Rachel and Brooke for some reason." It makes sense that Brooke would get ready in the same room as Haley - she's the maid of honor. So Haley should know the reason of why Brooke and Rachel were there.

    • Nathan and Haley were supposed to go to London for their honeymoon because it always rains there and they have had their best moments in the rain.

    • Sophia Bush (Brooke) almost bruised her hand during the first fight scene between Brooke and Peyton. When she hits the door containing the list of guys for Brooke, she hits it very hard on every take and her bracelet (fan-made) created a small bruise on her palm and wrist.

    • During the scene where Peyton and Brooke have their first fight, there are shots of Hilarie Burton (Peyton) and in some, her chest is a little more red than others. That's because they are later takes where Hilarie would clutch her chest.

    • There is a recurring tree theme in this episode, as mentioned by Sophia Bush in the audio commentary.
