Holy crud. That was pretty intense. A lot went down, so letÃâÃÂ´s go at this one character at the time.
Sam: Sam is quickly becoming my favorite part of the show. I love that tonight they used her character to tie up a lot of threads from earlier in the season. SheÃâÃÂ´s funny, bitchy, and has a heart. Tonight she learned BrookeÃâÃÂ´s attack was her fault. Her friend Jack seems like a real doof. I thought it was cute that he liked her, but not that he beat someone half to death to show it! What the hell! She better come home soon.
Brooke: Poor girl. She was finally bonding with her new daughter (who it seems has eliminated her chances of becoming a BABY baby mama) when she discovers that it was her daughter rather than her actual mama who caused the attack! She did a great job at the end when she was upset and looking for Sam. IÃâÃÂ´m glad she isnÃâÃÂ´t angry at Sam for what happened, although that would be pretty out of character for Brooke. SheÃâÃÂ´s always been forgiving in the past. I also felt bad for her when she was talking about being a big ho in high school. At least she got the sketches back..
Julian: I am also really starting to like him. I generally like marshmallow characters (solid exterior, squishy inside! got that one from veronica mars.) It was pretty funny when he drew P & J in the salt. I love that he has most of the people on the show right where he wants them. It seems he can pretty much piss of Peyton and Lucas as much as he wants with no consequences. I want him to get with Brooke!
Owen/Millie: I once wanted him to get with Brooke, but his fear-of-children thing has gotten pretty old. (Nate is generally my dream boy on this show, but when I saw Owen dwarfing him in the Slamball game a few episodes ago, I felt the tides change...) I canÃâÃÂ´t believe heÃâÃÂ´s drinking because of Brooke, when itÃâÃÂ´s his fault sheÃâÃÂ´s mad! If he would only stop making youÃâÃÂ´re not a real mom comments! If he gets with Millie, I will freak out. That is a horrible betrayal in so many ways, and just.. gross. Plus I think he would break a virgin like Millie. Ouch.
Nate: His little montage with the freeze-frame was reallllly stupid, but I hope that call is a yes. His scene with Jamie on his shoulders was also adorable.
Jamie: I know JamieÃâÃÂ´s adorable, but I thought his piano scene tonight was a little too silly. He lightens up the show, but I wish he would sometimes act like a real 5 year old. (Whiny, peeing the bed, not being quite so wise and inspiring..)
Lucas/Dixon: If you liked James Van der Beek as the crazy director guy, you should definitely see the movie The Rules of Attraction, in which he also plays an extremely insane coke sniffing guy. Lucas seemed pretty amused. I thought heÃâÃÂ´d be a lot more freaked out. Props to Dixon on the Lucas and Haley thing though, I always thought that would happen during the first few seasons.
Peyton: Cancer! What the hell! All of these obstacles, for the past nine-ish years in Tree Hill time, and now cancer?? Since sheÃâÃÂ´s clearly not going to die, it just gets on my nerves. Get married already. I get my cancer fix from House and GreyÃâÃÂ´s.
JACKÃâÃÂ´S BROTHER! QuentinÃâÃÂ´s killer! We all wondered what the heck happened to him, and here he is, on a dark stormy night with two vulnerable teens in his car. I really hope nobody else dies and Sam doesnÃâÃÂ´t get too involved with him. My Q nerve is still a little sensitive.
ThatÃâÃÂ´s all for now guys! Leave some comments! I will now put on my cape and fade into the darkness.
