Doctor #1


Walking out after winning the state championship, Nathan was about to tell Haley everything when she sees a car approaching, pushes him away but gets ran over badly. The irate father-to-be runs to the car which slipped and stopped, drags Daunte out and knocks him senseless- Dan comes to stop him, but too late- the otherwise so selfish father sends Nathan away and risks everything, pretending to have killed the monster himself when the police arrives. Lucas has a heart-attack causing a coma, during which he is 'visited' by his beloved late Uncle Keith, who shows him things would be even worse for his loved ones if he hadn't been good, but Lucas asks more questions then even a more eloquent spirit could answer. When the doctors tell Nathan the baby isn't even a priority as Haley is hurt so badly, he breaks down, telling Brooke and Peyton it should have been him, the guilty one, he should have died in the river; he even cries out Keith shouldn't have saved him. Peyton finds some comfort ... Written by KGF Vissers

Keith Scott: [as a ghost] Seeing your mom still takes my breath away.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Even though technically you don't have any breath. I do. I just saw myself in the room. Guess I'm still breathing for now.
Keith Scott: She feels guilty for letting you play.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: It's my fault. I didn't take my pills.
Keith Scott: Yeah, you know what? That was a very stupid thing to do, Luke.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: I was trying to win a state championship. And anyway, is a spirit allowed to call people stupid?
Keith Scott: I'm dead. I can say whatever the hell I want.
Lucas 'Luke' Scott: Yeah, well it isn't very nice!

this episode was good
9 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen the whole thing yet but from the clips that I saw it seems that it is one of the best episodes this season. Brooke is so selfless to let Peyton have the one she truly loves. The Naley scenes pawned the whole episode and Keith was back which made me happy. Though, i'm a brucas shipper myself...I believe that Peyton needs to see that Lucas doesn't really love her. He seems to be in love with Brooke but just in denial about it. The quote that Keith said makes me believe he was talking about Brooke and how Lucas can't mistake his true love for caring about Peyton. I'm glad that Mark didn't make Brooke just up and become Peyton's best friend again, she needs to learn that cheating with your best friend's boyfriend is wrong and she needs to stop.
