Graduation finally arrives, but while Lucas holds Dan at gun-point accusing him of murdering Keith, his pregnant mother, Karen, has collapsed and must be brought to hospital to deliver a girl. Nathan believes that nobody will ever take him into another basketball team and goes for a manual labor job in Skill's dads steel factory team. Brooke happily with Chase, although they'll be separated after summer, and finds the courage to tell the principal about cheating at maths, yet is allowed to graduate. When Nathan asks his dad just to believe that he's innocent, Dan chokes: he can't. Lucas is convinced to attend graduation while Karen is in a stable condition at the hospital, but suddenly she has a crisis; Haley's valedictorian speech is also cut short. Coach ponders his an Nathan's options and comes up with a way out of town and out of trouble. Written by

There is a tide in the affairs of men, which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. I think that what that quote means is that life is short and opportunities are rare and we have to be vigilant in protecting them and not only the opportunities to succeed but the opportunities to laugh and see the enchantment in the world and to live. Because life doesn't owe us anything. As a matter of fact, I think that we owe something to the world.
