One Tree Hill Episode Recap: "We All Fall Down" Season 8, Episode 4

Sacrifices were made on this week's One Tree Hill, as Nathan let go of basketball and Brooke gave up her company.

Julian takes Brooke on a drive to the Biltmore Estate where he suggests the gorgeous location for their wedding. But with her mom in jail and the company suffering financially, Brooke wonders if it's selfish to have an extravagant wedding. "I want to remember it like this — perfect -- you of all people deserve it," Julian tells her. But later, when Brooke is in her store, an investor shows up to show her a picture of his daughter. He explains that she just got accepted into college and that he saved his whole life to make sure she could go. "You're the reason I have to tell her tonight she won't be going after all. I invested a hell of a lot of money in you, Miss Davis, and my money is gone because you lied to us. And you should be ashamed of yourself," he says. Brooke is devastated.

Alex and Chase enjoy a day of golfing and play a version of Truth or Dare on the green. Alex admits she's never been in love and Chase reveals that in high school he was a "clean teen" — aka "virgin for life." "How did it go for you?" Alex asks. "I let the clean teens down," Chase responds. The relationship between the two is surprisingly sweet and at the end of the date, Chase walks Alex to her door. "I'd ask you in, but I really like you," she says. Chase starts to leave, but apparently he passes Alex's text. She grabs his hand and pulls him into her room.

Quinn is released from the hospital and moves back in with Haley and Nathan. Since she was living with Clay before the shooting, he goes to retrieve her stuff. As soon as he walks in, he pictures Clay and Quinn as they were laying there half-dead. It's enough to traumatize Nate as he heads to Tric to down a beer. Julian joins Nate and tells him about how he loves baby-sitting Jamie and how much fun they have playing baseball. Nathan then declares, "I'm going to finish this beer and then I'm going to go home and tell my wife I'm done playing." "Why?" Julian asks. "Haley's pregnant, Clay and Quinn are recovering, and I didn't know my own son liked baseball," Nathan responds. His parting words to Julian are, "Give Brooke my best and tell her I said not to be afraid of what comes next."

Julian comes home to find Brooke distraught. She explains that she's going to lose the company because she can't bear to set foot in her store or office knowing she kept them by deceiving people. "At the end of the day all you really own is your integrity," Julian says, saying he'll support her decision to sell the company. She meets with a lawyer and finds out that liquidating Clothes Over Bros would only leave investors getting back 70 percent of what they lost. That's not enough for our Brooke Davis. "What if I liquidate everything, everything I have, everything I own. Will that do it?" she asks. He says yes, and she tells him to do it.

At the crisis-call center where Haley is now volunteering, she receives a call amongst the non-serious ones. It's a woman on the other end of the line in need of someone to talk to. Haley listens as the voice talks about struggling to believe that good things happen to good people. While Haley talks about not being alone and that there is help out there, we see Julian looking at some raw footage he shot earlier while Nate was shooting hoops. He saves it on his computer as, "What comes next?" Perhaps it's new inspiration for Julian's next project.

The episode ends with Nathan scrubbing the blood out of Clay's carpet. Perhaps this season it'll be Nathan who is the one needing comfort.
