This week's episode was another shocker. We've come to expect nothing less but it never ceases to amaze me just how quickly things can go from good to bad in the town of Tree Hill. While some relationships were flourishing, other characters faced their darkest times. With that said, let's discuss!
Lucas and Peyton are certainly in the "newlywed stage." Giddy like school kids they're jumping on beds, ignoring life outside of their hotel room, with no care in the world. For one friend life can't get any better while for the other, it pretty much can't get any worse. As Peyton is telling Lucas about the wedding she wants, Brooke calls. As the camera pans to Brooke we see her all bruised and beaten up. Instead of telling her best friend what has happened, she ends the conversation. Brooke then calls the one person she has decided to confide in, Deb. When Deb arrives the only thing Brooke can say is "I'm not gonna cry." She helps to conceal Brooke's face and urges her to call the police. Brooke won't oblige and makes her promise not to tell a soul and also asks Deb to teach her how to use a gun.
Speaking of Deb, her and Skillz's relationship is progressing to the next level and he is seriously falling for her. They almost get busted when Skillz shows up for a morning visit but Hayley is still home. She may be clueless but Jamie isn't, and he even likes the fact that Uncle Skillz and Nanny Deb have been kissing. Jamie also provides a little foreshadow by mentioning, "And they thought the last nanny was crazy."
They also haven't seen the last of crazy Carrie, who's still torturing Dan. Even I had to look away as she force fed him a cockroach. Carrie thinks her plan is working brilliantly. She's been spying on Jamie but in Dan's car to make Haley concerned that Dan has been showing up lately. But when Dan can finally speak he tells his crazy caretaker that her plan sucks. He reveals that he only has six months to live so when he's dead and Jamie is still missing, they'll know someone else must've taken him. Even in his worst state, Dan still has the last laugh.
Peyton finally gets home and sees Brooke's face. At first she makes up a funny story about Lindsay talking crap about Peyton leading to a fist fight but then says that the "truth" is that she was doing laundry and fell face first. Who believes that? Peyton tells Brooke that she and Lucas are engaged and moving in together. "Kinda sudden, hah?" Peyton says. "Are you kidding, the rest of the world has been waiting on you two idiots since high school." I think that's how we fans feel as well. It's clear that Brooke is in a pretty dark place. She wants to be alone, can't bear to be touched, and won't tell anyone what happened. She's looking for justice and with that gun she's learning to shoot she may just get it.
This week we got to see a truly changed man. Why is it that bad things always happen to the guy who was a jerk but has seen the error of his ways? The relationship that has formed between Quentin and Jamie is absolutely adorable and sweet and I love hearing Jamie rap to Q's tunes. Not only has Q gone from dropping out to an A+, but he also confesses to Haley that he has a brother Jamie's age and likes to watch out for them before life gets harder. He even dreams of getting married and raising a family one day. Q is happy to be a part of Nathan's comeback and Nathan thanks him back for all he's done. At this point something had to be brewing. Later on that night Q went inside a gas station and out of the corner of his eye, sees someone lying bloody on the floor. At that moment he knew he was in trouble. He turns around and we see a gun shot but it's only Brooke at the shooting range with Deb. Sadly it didn't mean he was in the clear. Lucas got a call in the middle of the night and says "Oh My God." Quentin was shot dead.
Has anyone else been reduced to tears? A lot happened tonight and I know I didn't cover it all so please comment away!
