Oh, Peyton and Lucas. What are you doing? Them hooking up was inevitable because they should have gotten together at the start. But now it's just really shitty on Brooke. I like them as a couple but I mean why drag it out and then hurt someone else? The scene at the end where they see Brooke again was tense and awkward - it's only going to get worse. I can only forgive them because of the circumstances - Peyton's dad is lost at see and might be dead. I liked how she seemed almost calm until she found out he was alive and then panicked about the bracelet he gave her. It seemed like quite a real emotion. Lucas was there for her in that moment but I still hate how they did this to Brooke. She cares about them both and they should know that and come clean.
Dan's parents coming was very entertaining and dramatic! The secret about Dan quitting basketball at college was shocking and a nice reveal. I loved how tense it was at breakfast the next morning. Dan and Deb are over, I think. And it's starting to drag a little. Nathan choosing to start playing again to free himself from his dad is an odd choice - I agree with Haley. The ending seemed to suggest that they weren't talking?
A tense episode where stupid decisions were made...
