This episode starts with Nathan on the court playing basketball... alone. His decision to let his basketball carreer behind him is affecting him, and as he walks off the court, we can see (through Julian's video camera) the sadness and regrets in his eyes. I can hardly believe that Nathan will stay home to take care of his family. He is an athlete, which means that he needs action, physical activity to feel fine. Sport is for an athlete what drug is for a drug addict, you can't stop that easily! And I don't want to see a depressed Nathan trying to forget his sadness by drinking, as he did in season 5. Nathan is a real go-getter, so he will probably find something else to do, and hopefully it will be related to sport.
Brooke makes the hard decision of liquidating all the assets of Clothes Over Bros and of giving up her personal fortune. She wants to pay back all the investors who believed in her company. I would be glad to see the "poor Brooke" back to Tree Hill, even if the idea of giving up her personal money for complete strangers sounds a bit extreme to me. It will also have negative impacts on her wedding with Julian. They probably won't be able to organize the "wedding of their dreams" like they wanted to. However, Julian shows her a beautiful castle (Baltimore Estate) where he suggests to organize the ceremony.
Victoria is still in jail, and has other prisonners working for her. She wants to run Clothes Over Bros from jail and doesn't understand Brooke's will.
Alex and Chase enjoy a day of golfing. They were cute but I have to admit that, though it was entertaining, it was a bit cheesy. Alex reveals she's never been in love, and Chase that he was a member of the Clean Teens when he was a teenager. For those who don't remember, the Clean Teens was a club with the motto "Virgin for life".
Haley is happier than ever when she picks Quinn up at the hospital. Quinn is going to leave with Haley's family for a while (until Clay gets better).
We also learned that Haley is now volunteering at the crisis call center. She doesn't really enjoy her job because people are calling for trivial problems. But, she finally receives a call from a mysterious woman who seems to have a real need to talk to her. Haley is a good listener and I am sure she will give her good advice to overcome her problems.
The season is getting better. Hopefully, Tree Hill is back on the right track!
