  • Big episode!!

    Woah, if there was ever a big episode of the season so far it is How a Resurrection Really Feels. Couples reunited. Dan's arsonist was revealed. And storylines were continued and opened.

    Haley and Nathan finally get back together after a pretty funny episode where Nathan plays poker with Chris Kellar who makes him realise how much Haley means to him. Their reuniting scene was very sweet and it paid off after all the build up. Brooke distracts herself from Lucas by creating her own clothing line - this is the starts of a massive storyline that will go on for seasons to come. BUT I did like how she finally made herself vulnerable and gave Luke the letters. Their kiss was very sweet too with them saying that they love each other.

    Deb is revealed to be the one who set the fire and poisoned Dan! Nice reveal in that in tied in with Dan becoming mayor. Oh, and Peyton seeing herself as the angel of death was quite amusing. Good way to get her to go and find Ellie. And 'Chris Kellar's work here is done' he's so funny and a big part of the show - and he got Nathan and Haley back together.

    So a big episode that was one of the best this season.

    Tree Hill chooses it's new mayor and for some reason they chose Dan. God help them all!!

    Peyton and Brooke get arrested for taking the clothes from Suburban Filth and Haley gets arrested for wearing it. Haley convinces Brooke to continue making clothes, but this time to sell them herself on a website and Clothes over Bro's is born!!!!!

    Peyton is dealing with guilt over sending Ellie away and decides to look her up so she can go see her. Nathan and Chris go riverboat gambling. It's so fun watching them together. Chris is all about fun and seems to want to be friends with Nathan, but Nathan just can't stand him. I loved Chris' exit line "Chis Keller's work here is done." I'm glad he is leaving, but I'm actually going to miss hm. We finally find out her tried to kill Dan. It was Deb, but he doesn't know it. He thinks it was someone else. Deb decides to leave so that she can be safe in case Dan finds out it was her.

    Brooke comes clean to Lucas about how she really spent her summer and they finally get back together. It's so sweet that she wrote all those letters and I'm glad she finally gave them to him.

    And if the rest of the episode sucked I would still give this one a 10 because of the very end with Nathan and Haley. Nathan asks her to stay and she gets to see that he has been wearing his ring around his neck. So cute!!!moreless

  • Season 3, Episode 9.

    It is revealed that Lucas knows who tried to kill Dan and he confronts the guilty party. Brooke, Peyton and Haley find themselves behind bars. Peyton finds her guilty conscience on the surface. Chris Keller convinces Nathan to be his wingman at a high-stakes poker game. The residents of Tree Hill finally choose a mayor. I liked this episode, a lot. The whole jail thing in the beginning rocked. :) Lucas made Brooke wait in jail for another 10 minutes. Hehe that was wicked. I like that Lucas got hurt this time, not Brooke. It evens out. Definitely a good episode. "Clothes Over Bros" is used for the first time! :)moreless
  • Loved it!

    Haley, Brooke, and Peyton get arrested for stealing Brooke's designs from the store. Haley suggests that Brooke start her own clothing line. Brooke does and it's called Clothes Over Bros. The voting is here for mayor! Karen and Dan go head to head. Dan thinks that Karen is the one who tried to kill him. It turns out to be Deb. Lucas knows because he saw her drive away from the scene of the crime. Nathan and Chris go to a poker game when Chris tells him that he lost all his money for Haley's demo. Peyton's subconscious comes to her and convicts her about Ellie. Dan wins the title of mayor. Deb leaves. Nathan and Haley get back together finally! Brooke and Lucas also get together!

    This was a great episode! I'm so glad that Nathan and Haley are back together! I'm also happy about Lucas and Brooke! It's cool how Brooke made her own line of clothing! We finally find out who tried to murder Dan! I'm not that surprised that it was Deb, but I would've guessed Keith. Chris was nice in the end, but he is a jerk. This episode gets 10 out of 10 from me!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (7)

    • This is officially the last episode in which Deb is married to Dan. She had to legally stay married to him until the election was over, and now that Dan has won, she is officially divorced from him for good. (That only took three years when it was suppose to take one).

    • The song which jams in the Nathans car-stereo during Nathan's and Chris' "roadtrip", is titled "Holiday" by Doktor Kosmos, and is the same song that jams in episode 8 of season 2 "Truth Bitter Truth." When Nathan and Lucas go on a roadtrip to Charlotte.

    • There is a part of the speech that Dan wrote that he didn't used, or was possibly cut out of the episode. It said the following: "But let's talk about the part of my life the camera hasn't seen. My wife and I have struggled with our marriage at times. Through her infidelities and pill addiction.
      Through my son's emancipation.
      I chose to deal with these things by becoming a workaholic, trying to wall off my troubles with a successful business. Hoping I could somehow build the American Dream, and not realizing that I already had it."

    • When Haley went to see Nathan, and is walking towards the door, the door is closed. When Nathan asks her to stay and she reaches the doorway, the door is open.

    • When Nathan & Haley kiss, their face change positions through shots.

    • When Nathan asks Haley to spend the night she closes Nathan's door. It is a recreation of the exact same scene when Nathan asks if he can stay with her in With Arms Outstretched.

    • Brooke's new clothing line, "Clothes over Bros", is similar to Peyton and Brooke's favorite saying, "Hoes over Bros."

  • QUOTES (31)

    • Brooke: There are 82 letters in here, and they're all addressed to you. I wrote them all this summer. One a day, but I never sent them 'cause I was afraid.
      Lucas: Brooke...
      Brooke: I was afraid of getting my heart broken again, like before. 'Cause you hurt me so bad, and I was afraid to be vulnerable. And I was afraid of you and the way that you make me feel. And I know that doesn't matter now after what I did, but I just thought that you should know. This was how I spent my summer, Luke, wanting you... I'm just too scared to admitt it.
      (walks away Lucas followes her)
      Lucas: Brooke! I'm sorry! What you did with Chris... it's okay.
      Brooke: It's not. It can't be. It's too much to forgive!
      Lucas: Well, that's too bad because I forgive you.
      Brooke: You can't!
      Lucas: I just did. So you're gonna just have to deal with it. I'm the guy for you Brooke Davis, and I know I hurt you last time we're together, but...
      Brooke: I love you.
      Lucas: I love you, too... pretty girl.
      (they kiss)

    • Peyton: Okay, I'm not arguing with you.
      Peyton's subconscious: Oh, come on, Peyton, that's what we do, okay? We have these inner conversations daily. Am I gonna look stupid? Am I pretty enough? Did Jake just wanna get in my pants? (pause) Should Lucas be with me instead of Brooke?

    • Peyton: What do you wanna do?
      Haley: Well, we should call somebody, like our parents.
      Brooke: Mine are in California.
      Haley: Mine are in an RV somewhere.
      Peyton: Mine's out to sea. Or dead, or banished.

    • Haley: Oh, where did we go so wrong?
      Brooke: Well I slept with Chris Keller and you went on tour with him.

    • Haley: When did we start letting boys dictate our happiness?
      Brooke: I was 9.

    • (after she steps in the closet)
      Peyton's subconscience: Closet full of anxiety.

    • Peyton: I didn't know my subconscious could be such a bitch.
      Peyton's subconscience: No, no. We're a bitch. Try to keep up, okay?

    • Nathan: Aye, where you going?
      Chris: Chris Keller's work here is done.

    • Chris: So are we even?
      Nathan: Even? You kissed my wife. You lost all our money. You lied to me about a poker game and you got me attacked by a munchkin and a transvestite.
      Chris: Whoa, whoa. You think Emanuelle is a dude?
      Nathan: E-man-uelle has an adam's apple.
      Chris: Oops.

    • Chris: Stop hitting me.
      Nathan: Stop kissing my wife.
      Chris: I will when you start kissing her.

    • Chris: (confessing to Nathan) I kissed Haley.. at the Masquerade Party.

    • Karen: (to Lucas, looking at her flowers) They're from Andy

    • Chris (to Nathan): Wait up man, it's spooky out here.

    • Chris: Oh. (strumming guitar) Alright. Not bad.
      Nathan: Are you serious. My cell phone is shot. We're in a middle of nowhere and you check your guitar? How about a thank you for not letting you drown?
      Chris: Whoa. Chris Keller was dog-paddling just fine.
      Nathan: Chris Keller was sinking just fine.

    • Nathan: Dude, we got to jump.
      Chris: No way man, Chris Keller can't swim.
      Nathan: It's either jump or die.
      Chris: You're not hearing me, I can't swim.

    • Nathan: A pair of threes? You lost everything on a pair of threes. You suck at this, Chris.

    • Brooke: Instead of making out, I should be making clothes.

    • Peyton's subconscious: Hmm. I'm having a snack. See it's pretty great actually. I eat and you get fat. Ha.

    • Brooke: Clothes over bros?
      Haley: Clothes over bros.

    • Brooke: I didnt expect you to be kind about this, but seeing you this way, its even worse than I thought it would be.
      Lucas: Good.

    • Brooke: I care about you so much.
      Lucas: Well you have a hell of way of showing it.

    • Dan: Oh when you concede today, make sure you say nice things about me.

    • Nathan: I thought you said lost all the money.
      Chris: Oh I did. This is the money your dad paid me last week to seduce Haley.

    • Dan: Well, well, so that's who tried to kill me.

    • Nathan: Forget the jail, call the morgue.

    • Haley: I cant believe I got arrested for a wearing a stupid tank top.

    • Nathan: Haley, stay with me tonight.
      Haley: Oh, I was hoping you would say that.

    • Nathan: (to Haley) You know for most of my life I would've gone through all of this alone, but then I met you and I finally found someone I can depend on when life got like this.
      Haley: You can always call me Nathan, always and forever.

    • Lucas: I didn't sleep with Peyton.
      Brooke: But you slept with Nikki.

    • Brooke: I am sorry. I'm sorry I did it and I'm sorry you had to see it.

    • Lucas: Pretty skanky move, Brooke.

    • Nathan: Great, Riverboat gambling. Nice move, Tom Sawyer.

      This is an allusion to Mark Twain's well-known novel, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

      This is a reference to A Christmas Carol, written by Charles Dickens. In it the main character, Ebenezer Scrooge, is visited by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come.

    • Episode Title: How a Resurrection Really Feels

      "How a Resurrection Really Feels" is a song by The Hold Steady off the record, Separation Sunday.

    • Martha Stewart:
      The jail lady says this as Peyton is about to steer Haley in her direction, while they are all in the cell.
      Martha Stewart was arrested for lying to authorities about a stock deal.
