One Tree Hill Episode Recap: "Luck Be a Lady" Season 8, Episode 7

On this week's One Tree Hill, Brooke attempts to bond with her future mother-in-law while Julian searches for his best man. But Julian isn't too much of a guy's guy, so the task proves to be harder than he thought. It's especially funny when he calls himself J-Man on the phone to Clay, and Clay has no idea it's him.

Brooke and Sylvia head to a wedding expo, where their difference in taste becomes more apparent. Sparkles and a tiara are not for B. Davis. She calls on Haley to come help her out, but when Haley enjoys all the expo has to offer way too much (the champagne fountain really is a fountain of happiness), Brooke is left to fight the wedding battle all on her own. Luckily she gets Sylvia a bit liquored up and doesn't have to commit to any vendors on the spot.

Alex has a few days off from her film and returns to Tree Hill to make things right with Chase. She doesn't have much luck, so she resorts to hanging with her only friend in town, Julian. Together, they come up with a plan for Julian to bond with the guys and decide on a poker night.

Nathan is sent to Atlanta to try to nab his and Clay's first official client. But when the guy starts throwing out terms that Nate isn't familiar with, he leaves with a defeatist attitude. He tells Haley that he hasn't felt that dumb since high school, and at least back then, he could beat someone up to feel better. Haley, too, is feeling bad because earlier, Erin had finally called the crisis center, but Haley admitted she knew Erin's real identity. Hales was hoping to sign her as a new singer, but Erin hangs up at the thought that she's no longer anonymous.

At poker night, Julian realizes something about men: they're mean. All the guys start ripping on each other, from silly nicknames, to who slept with who's ex. Julian's guys night becomes more tense than fun. Mouth also talks about how Nathan punched him back in high school, and it's a nice nod to how far they've both come. The harshest of all is Chase, who keeps putting Alex down. They talk about how Chase was a "clean teen" in high school (aka virgin club) and when Alex comments how she didn't have a club like that at her high school he quips, "Of course not. You went there." 

After poker night ends in a bit of a disaster, Clay apologizes to Nathan for sending him on the road unprepared to talk business. He reminds Nate how great of an agent he'd make, especially with the sports background he has. And then Clay tells him the good news: Troy, the football player in Atlanta, wants Nathan and their new agency, Fortitude, to represent him.

Haley also gets a nice surprise when Erin shows up at Red Bedroom Records. Haley apologizes for breaking her confidentiality, and Erin accepts. Will she be their next big thing?

Brooke gets a drunken Sylvia home and into bed, where she says how happy her son Julian is and that it  means the world to her. "I always wanted a daughter, and today was just everything I dreamed it would be," she says before adding, "Please don't tell Julian I was drinking, he worries." Does Sylvia have a drinking problem we don't know about?

Alex goes to Tric to try to apologize to Chase for lying to him before she left for the film. But he's relentless in making her feel bad. As Mia shows up, Chase grabs her and kisses her. Alex slaps him and walks away, and then Mia does the same thing. She knows he's obviously using her just to make Alex jealous.

Julian returns home to Brooke to say, "Guys are mean. I missed being in the Brooke bubble." He says he found his best man and brings in a blow-up doll of Lucas. Looks like a best Man-nequin will have to do for now.
