Vaughn Wilson ...


The game against Masonboro, coached by Dan, can mean a perfect season for the Ravens. Nathan finally gets Haley over the computer images- and in bed. Brooke swears Peyton she's two-timing Nikki who wants to take Jenny from Jake. Karen is not prepared to see Lucas leave to Charleston with Keith, which makes nearly everybody sad. At the game bully Dan ignores the medical advice to have Lucas' arm X-rayed and keeps it from him so he'll play; Nathan overhears him but passes him the decisive last minute shot, and thus shatters the unbeaten season dream. Just before he leaves, Lucas gets surprising news from Nathan and Haley... Written by KGF Vissers

There is only one Tree Hill
15 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

Pretty good season finale. Lots going on.

Turns out Dan wanted to go back to Tree Hill to support Karen. That's got to be a kick in the guts to Deb to find out he only stayed for the baby.

The flashbacks were annoying, and thats where the point was lost for this episode.

How did Dan walk in on Deb and Keith, SHE CHANGED THE LOCKS! Did the writers forget this in the story line, or just left it out on purpose to create the drama.

I really thought Brooke was backstabbing Peyton, but just turns out that she is a double schemer. Gotta love her for that.

Finally we get a line in the show that explains the shows name, and its a pretty weak line.

Big cliff hanger with Dans heart attack. I want him to stay, he gives the show a great dynamic.
