Tension mounts now the Ravens may get their first ever undefeated season if they win against Cove City, but instead of encouraging his son, Dan barks at Nathan he doesn't go deep enough while ordering him to convince his mother he's not unhappy, thus blaming the poor kid for her punishing him by running Karen's place. He decides to take amphetamines supplied by Tim's brother, which make him so aggressive coach throws him out at training; when he gently tries to take the next step while kissing Haley, she also shows him the door. Brooke gets Lucas to go out as 'reward' for recommending a book she lobes, then makes him drink and- get a real tattoo, to Keith's in loco parentis despair and fury. At the crucial game, Nathan's second pill dose lands him first on the bench and next in hospital. Dan doesn't believe the doctors correct substance diagnosis; he didn't even call Deb, who tells him to leave home for good. Written by KGF Vissers

Haley James: The good news is you did better and the bad news is better is a "D".

Nathan: Well she broke up with you too? I didn't know she was going to take it this hard. She went off on Brooke at practice. I'm kinda worried about her.

I want all the same things you want, I do, and I want them with you
10 February 2013 | by (Ballarat, Australia) – See all my reviews

I get the feeling that we are just moving through all the stereotypical teenage topics: lying, sex, drinking, drugs, cheat, virginity, etc. It's great to touch on these topics, but they just seem to spring up out of the blue. LIke the writers thought, OK todays topic is going to be performance drugs, quick make up 2-3 lines to justify Nathan going this way. It'd be more believable if the topics were introduced gradually over a few episodes.

I don't like how Lucas just moved on from Peyton so fast. I get the feeling that he's liked her for a while, and a little resistance, and he just moves onto the next available in the queue. Makes him seem like a shallow boy following his hormones rather than the sensitive man I thought he was. It's great that Peyton finally got over her emotional road block and told him the truth. That was a great speech. I don't understand how these girls were OK with both liking the same guy in the first place and are somewhat OK with swapping him around like a favourite sweater. When Lucas and Brooke kiss, I have no emotion. I'm not rooting for that relationship. They are just not meant to be together. Peyton is better! Brooke has to get guys drunk for them to like her. It's just all wrong.

I like the cliffhanger at the end, what did Lucas and Hayley do? They both had big decision to make, adult decisions regarding sex. Not an easy minefield to navigate.

Overall a good episode, but I"m marking down heavily because I love Lucas, but not Brooke and Lucas.
