Next week's One Tree Hill episode has an overall gloomy vibe, based on the previews so far. One James family member arrives to bring some bad news, while Millie is still struggling with her addiction. Then there's Brooke who seems to be having a hard time getting over her ex.
In "My Attendance is Bad But My Intentions Are Good," the 16th episode of One Tree Hill's seventh season, Brook seems at a loss at how to handle her misery. She tries to find solace at a bar and admits to the bartender that she took a job to be near her ex Julian and it's painful but she's trying to suck it up because it's worse to be away from him. Meanwhile, the bartender tells Brooke about his failed romance.
