Episode Recap

"Some people believe that ravens guide travelers to their destinations. Others believe that the sight of a solitary raven is considered good luck. While more than one raven together, predicts trouble ahead."
Four years, six months, and two days have gone past. The Tree Hill gang have changed and went in different directions in their life.

Brooke Davis is a wise, intelligent, and successful fashion designer for Clothes Over Bros. It's a multi-million dollar company. She has her own assistant. She also has another employee named Victoria who acts like she is Brooke's boss. Brooke is on her way to leave for Milan but she thinks over her life. She has fame, money, success, accomplishments, and power but that doesn't make her happy.

Peyton is in L.A. but the sky isn't blue. Goldilocks wanted to pursue music & art but what she got was her boss, Knight, saying to her she should "Drop a button on that top" if she wanted to sit in on the morning new music session. "One button one song".
Peyton wants music to change someone's life like it had hers. Peyton doesn't seem to be happy either. She calls Brooke and said, "I don't know who I am anymore or how I got here. I miss who I used to be. I wanna have a home again, you know? Real friends, you know? The kind of friendships that we used to believe in. I miss that; I miss you. I guess I miss all of it. Does any of that make any sense?" Brooke and Peyton decide to come back to One Tree Hill, North Carolina.

Nathan saw his basketball dream vanish, four months ago. A bar fight has led him to be in a wheelchair. Furious, bitter and pretty drunk. Since the accident, Nathan hasn't been able to get himself back on track. He has become a drunk and a miserable person. Haley and Lucas aren't able to get him out of this stage of his life. Nathan and Haley have a 4-year-old son named Jamie Lucas Scott. He sees Jamie play basketball and tells Haley that he doesn't want him to play anymore. She tells him that Jamie just wants to be like his dad. There's a scene where Nathan gets off of his wheelchair and says, "Daddy's sorry for everything; come here" and he hugs Jamie.

After writing his first novel, Lucas Scott can't seem to find a way to write the second one, much to his editor's dismay. His editor, Lindsey, who is also his girlfriend. Besides, Lucas and Skills were asked to coach the Ravens six months ago. And they accepted. Even though it has been a long time since the new team won.
