  • Fun filler.

    While pretty much a filler episode (and bar the really cheesy after school special ending with the screenshot of Jamie) Messin' with the Kid was a fun episode that developed relationships more than anything.

    I liked the Jamie storyline - how Haley got in a catfight with Chuck's mom, Nathan wore a cape too and got that basket. And even how Dan threatened Chuck's mother at the end. It was still a little fillery though. Peyton and Lucas's storyline really was fun and it was nice just to have an episode as them as a couple. Brooke dealing with Sam was entertaining and I do like their connection - quite like having Owen back too. Mouth meeting Gigi again is a little silly cos it's juts unnecessary drama for him and Millie but she is funny. I loved Haley singing a duet with that singer too.

    So overall a fun episode.

  • Lucas & Peyton Officially Move In

    I love the Lucas and Peyton moving in together storyline. They are finally unpacking her boxes and realize they don't have everything in common like they once thought. I think it's really funny that they are letting B. Davis magazine make their decisions about moving in. I loved the dividing of the house and all the funny stuff they did. This was a nice fun storyline to have after all the drama that has happened so far this season and it gave us a chance to see Lucas and Peyton being themselves, having fun, and just enjoying their relationship.

    I liked the bullying storyline, too. It was a nice story for Jamie to have and it was handled well. It was so funny when Haley went after Chuck's mom. And it was really awesome of Nathan to get Brooke to make capes so he could go to the school wearing one to show the kids it's cool to wear one.

    Brooke is having a tough time with Sam. I like them a lot. Sam will learn to like Brooke, but it will just take time. She's not used to having anyone care about her.

    I loved the ending with Haley singing with that girl on the street. I really like hearing Haley sing. She is wonderful.moreless
  • Jaime's storyline was adorable and I loved how Brooke took Sam in.

    I loved the storyline where the kid was bullying Jaime. Jaime was so cute and I loved how he stood up for himself and walked away. The part about Scotts being better then everyone else was so true. I loved Brooke and Sam. It is awesome how Brooke is willing to do whatever it takes to help Sam. It should be interesting to see them learn to get along with eachother. Peyton and Lucas were entertaining in this episode. Their arguement and the magazine article was so funny. I would usually find Haley working on her music to be boring but it was entertaining.moreless
  • Lucas and Peyton, play a game

    In this episode of One Tree Hill, the following happens. Jamie has trouble with a bully at school. Luckily Nathan manages to save the day and make everyone in the school, want to be friends with Jamie. Gigi also comes back in this episode. Peyton and Lucas lock themselves in the house until they have unpacked all of Peyton's things. Brooke is still having trouble with Sam who still refuses to sleep in Brooke's house. Owen explains to Brooke that the reason he left, was because he wasn't ready to be a father. Overall a good episode which I enjoyed, although I didnt love it. Although the whole game thing between Peyton & Lucas was hilarious.moreless

    A Great Episode, Has Various Funny Moments But Like All One Tree Hill Episode It Deals With The Serious Issues Involving Sam And Her Background, But Brooke Is Determined To Show Sam That She Is Being Serious About This Whole Issue.

    I Love The Way That The Scott Family Bond, How Nathan Randomly Turns Up At School And Helps His Child Also One Tree Hill Shows That, Your Never Too Young To Start Realising Life, Loved The End Of It When Jamie Turns And Says "Some People Leade, And Some People Follow".

    Also, Brooke Working With Sam. The Connection Is Going To Be Great, As I Could See Brooke Doesn't Need Men At The Moment, But Think Is Falling For Owen Again.moreless

      Peyton: I'm so sorry. I'm only laughing because of how angry you got. I mean, I've never heard anybody yell at "it" before. Oh honey, it is not a big deal. Doesn't it happen to every guy at some point?
      Lucas: And it wouldn't have happened at all if we weren't in my mom's bed. This is your fault.
      Peyton: Well, you have never complained before.
