  • Haley and Nathan begin!

    9.0
    Two big things have happen in this episode; Haley and Nathan's relationship began. And we finally saw the real Brooke Davis.



    The first was a long time coming. Brooke bringing them together was sweet and the hidden envelope thing was a great idea. They do have chemistry and I'm glad Nathan went public with their relationship. If it will last...I don't remember. But this is the beginning of a major part of the show and their first kiss was done very well.



    Now Brooke has been somewhat of a bitch so far, until this episode. When Peyton gets slipped date-rape drugs she saves her and calls Lucas. For the first time you see why she and Lucas would work together. She's caring and they actually have a heart-to-heart conversation. And even how friendly Brooke was to Mouth - that was sweet. BUT Lucas has a problem on his hands. He's officially in a love triangle. I don't him this early either...I don;t know when it is that I start disliking him.



    This show is quite good at keeping the adults lives interesting. Deb offering to take over the cafe while Karen goes to Italy was nice and it was great to see Karen doing something she really wants to (even if it is an out so the actress can have some time off). Karen's scenes with Lucas expanded their mother-son bond. And the last of her scenes where she kisses Keith was great. Long time coming but pretty cruel to leave him waiting 6 weeks.



    Another brilliant episode. OTH isn't so bad after all. Not early on anyway.

    Nathan and Haley's first date and first kiss!! Yes!!



    Brooke fixes Haley and Nathan up on a serial-date. Card by card they will go to places around Tree Hill and answer questions to get to know each other. Brooke also goes to a college party with Peyton. Brooke tries to hook up with a college guy only to discover that he is in high school, too. Peyton meets a guy too and gets into some trouble. He drugs and attempts to rape her, but Brooke finds her before anything happens. And she calls Lucas for help. Lucas comes & beats the crap out of the guy. They take Peyton home and watch over her until she gets better.



    Karen gets an offer to go to cooking school in Italy and decides to take it. She leaves Keith in charge of Lucas and Deb in charge of the cafe. Before getting on the plane she kisses Keith.



    On their date Nathan and Haley share secrets, buy things for each other at a lingerie shop, and order each others favorite meal for the other before Nathan screws it up by acting like it's not a date when the guys come by. The next morning he goes to apologize and they end up sharing their first kiss!! Great episode!!moreless

    Looking for some fun, Brooke and Peyton crash a college party, but things turn ugly when one of the guys in the dorm drugs Peyton. After Brooke calls Lucas for help, the two bond over caring for a sleeping Peyton, prompting Lucas to look at Brooke in a new light. Meanwhile, Haley gives Nathan another chance (thanks to Brooke) and the two go on their first date. I love the scene at the start with Brooke and Peyton, talking about everything. They are awesome friends, well I like them a lot. I love the way Nathan wants to be okay with Hayley again. I love the scene where Brooke and Peyton are shopping and making plans for their night. I love the scene between Deb and Karen. I love the way Brooke comes up to Nathan saying sorry, and then she is planning something for both Nathan and Hayley. I love the scene between Brooke and Hayley too. I love the whole party scene storyline, with Brooke looking for somebody, and then with Peyton getting drugged. I love the scene at the Riverside with the boys playing basketball. I love whole storyline with Nathan and Hayley, especially when there doing Brookes date. I love Brooke's storyline with the high school boy. I love the way Brooke saves Peyton and then calls Lucas who then kicks the other boys .... I love the way Brooke and Lucas are getting along while they're looking after Peyton. I love the way Nathan messes up, and then he is throwing rocks at her window, but then it all works out in the end, with the kiss. I love the whole Karen leaving for Italy good storyline. I loved the ending of the episode with everything coming together. All in all another awesome episode.moreless

I love how she tried to fix everything she messed up when she was drunk. "Hello, Abercrombie!" LMAO! 10/10.moreless

      Karen: You looked me in the eye, and you said: "Go to Italy. I can take care of myself".

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Brooke: Hello Abercrombie

      Abercrombie & Fitch is a very popular clothing label. Texas Battle, who guest stars in season 3 of One Tree Hill, was the first African-American to appear in an Abercrombie & Fitch catalogue.

      Also, when Brooke says this, she is referring to actor Sean Faris' character. Sean Faris was on Life As We Know It co-starring Jon Foster, who happens to be Sophia Bush's boyfriend (as of 2008) and was a model for Abercrombie and Fitch in Winter 2004.
