One Tree Hill Episode Recap: "A Kiss to Build a Dream On" Season 6, Episode 21

The Scotts receive exciting offers, Brooke discovers something that could affect Sam in a major way, and Lucas reminiscises about a roadtrip with Peyton, all in this week's episode of One Tree Hill.

The B. Davis empire is back in business, and when Sam and Victoria seem to be hitting it off, Brooke tells her mom to back off. But perhaps Victoria is trying to protect Sam — she destroys a letter from someone claiming to be Sam's birth mother. Gotta love Sam and her one-liners: "How lame is my life that my only friends are a five-year-old and my foster granny?" Victoria takes her shopping, and, of course, they run into Brooke on the street. And boy is she pissed. She freaks out to Peyton, who asks, "Is it the worst thing in the world for Momzilla to be nice to Sam?" Later that night, Brooke finds the shredded letter, and when she calls Victoria, on it Victoria claims she destroyed the letter for Brooke because they could both lose Sam. Brooke doesn't buy it: "This is about you trying to have some half-ass do-over with Sam because you screwed up so completely with me...and you never took me shopping."

Brooke decides to give the letter to Sam, who doesn't want to read it. But Brooke knows there's a reason Sam has been going to the coffee shop where her mom works. Sam finally breaks down and tells Brooke she wonders why she wasn't good enough, why her mom just threw her away. Brooke urges her that if she wants to know why, her mom is the only person who can answer that. Despite Brooke not wanting to lose her, she brings Sam to the coffee shop to finally face her mom.

Mia and Chase are doing well, but Peyton drops a bomb by accident, revealing the whole Chase losing his virginity to Brooke thing. Mia is super bummed, but Haley consoles her by admitting that her husband Nathan lost his virginity to her sister. Oh the tangled web of Tree Hill. But at least Mia has someone to distract her when Nick Lachey walks into Red Bedroom Records. After hearing one of Haley's songs, Nick has come to find out what he needs to do to make a record with her song. All Mia can say is "Nick Lachey." "You really love using first and last names," he responds. "It's a Tree Hill thing," Mia says. (Wow, have the writers been reading my recaps?) Haley is flattered but declines Nick's offer as she's not interested in selling her music. But when Nick sings Haley's song for her later on, his voice and cheesy grins are enough to convince her to let him record it — as long as she can produce it.

Haley's not the only Scott to receive an exciting offer. Nathan hears the words from his coach that he's been waiting for — only instead of a chance to play in the NBA like he had hoped, it's a two-year deal to play on a European team. Coincidentally, his former nemesis Devon returns, with a new and improved attitude, to remind Nathan you only get one shot. Ultimately, Nathan turns down the offer to continue his pursuit of playing in the NBA.

Turns out that little Jamie has a crush on his friend Madison, but his friend asks her to the dance first. Skills convinces Jamie of the importance of the school dance ("I walked in Antwan, I left Skills," he tells him), so they decide to suit up and go stag. Although they spend the beginning of the night in the corner, the end is much more successful. Madison had been talking about Jamie all night, so his buddy apologizes for stealing her away and basically tells him to go for it. Jamie does just that, and he and Madison lock hands. Adorable, innocent five-year-old love. Skills also scores, as he talks to his crush, Jamie's teacher. Both of them have recently come out of serious relationships, so they start off slow, with just a dance.

Last but not least, Peyton is going so stir crazy on bed rest that she's even counted how many times the ceiling fan rotates in a minute. Her baby-daddy Lucas isn't much company, as he's been working to fix up her beloved car, the comet, of which she's unaware. As he fixes it up, he finds memorabilia of their past. First a concert ticket, and then a map that reminds him of their road trip. During that flashback, we learn quite a lot about their final night before Peyton left for college in LA. She was actually the one to send "An Unkindness of Ravens" to publishers in New York, and they ended up missing The Cure concert. It was that night that they said goodbye, and Peyton told Lucas all her dreams were wrapped up in him. In the present, Lucas gives Peyton the old ticket that he found in her car. She tells him that was one of the best nights of her life. "We had our whole lives in front of us," she says, to which Lucas responds, "We still do."

And the sweetest line of the night: Mia asks Chase if he loved Brooke, and he tells her, "I thought I did, before I fell in love with you."

What did you think of "A Kiss to Build a Dream On?" I personally thought it was one of the better episodes this season, but as always, let me hear your thoughts below.
