Episode Recap

Everyone gets word of the potential for River Court to be destroyed and they all band together to try to stop it. These basketball courts mean a lot to the residents of Tree Hill, they all have developed a fond memory of the place. New memories are being formed there as well when Chuck and Jamie spend the night camped out at the courts trying to spot endangered birds.

Brooke decides to spend some time with the girls and heads to Puerto Rico with Lauren, Alex, and Quinn. Once there, Quinn does a photo shoot for Brooke's magazine. Lauren was letting loose - she was busy partying it up. Haley was in Tree Hill all by herself. She had some time to think and when Brooke returns, she asks if she should reopen Karen's Cafe. Brooke agrees and asks to be Haley's business partner.

Karen's Cafe is up and running. The gang have had a lot of memories there, as at the River Court. At the end of the episode, Nathan and Jamie are at the courts, and Jamie shoots the basket as Nathan stands back and watches.
