Following a pretty solid send-off, One Tree Hill returns tonight with an all-new episode that puts Brooke and Julian's relationship under the microscope once again. If you recall, things didn't particularly end well for these two characters with all the Alex drama going on--- and by "all" I mean one involving Alex the junkie and the other involving Alex, Brooke's hot blonde British guy.
It really looks like Julian and Brooke are just playing a silly game now that they each have someone named Alex in their lives. However, there's really no fun involved as both of them end up getting hurt. When Julian welcomes Brooke back from her six-week trip, he tries to talk to Brooke in attempt to fix their relationship. He seems optimistic that they can resolve anything, whether Brooke's issue involves not being able to have kids or Alex. On the other hand, Brooke doesn't seemed convinced that things can go back to how they used to be.
