Chad Michale Murray portrays Lucas Scott, the son that Dan never claimed. This led to Keith being the father figure in his life.He and Nathan start out as enemies but bond as friends and as brothers as the show progresses. Lucas' best friend is Haley and he has been a romantic interest for both Peyton and Brooke. Lucas has a serious heart condition,which he concealed for a long time. Aside from basketball, his greatest passion is litrature and quotes from the books he reads are used on the show. In Season Five, he is a successful writer and head coach of the Ravens basketball team. He was in a relationship with his editor, Lindsey Strauss but conflicted by his feelings for former love Peyton, causing Lindsey to leave him at the altar. In the season finale, he asks one of Brooke, Peyton or Lindsey to marry him. It is revealed he chooses Peyton.
James lafferty portrays Nathan scott, the son that Dan did claim, although his relationships with both his parents are strained at the best of times. Nathan marries Haley in Season One and they renew their vows in Season Three, and later becomes a father to James Lucas "Jamie" Scott in Season Four. In Season One, he and Lucas start out as enemies, but bond as friends and brothers as the show progresses. Nathan is the star player of the Ravens and is named "Most Valuable Player" in Season Four. Also, in Season Four, he is investigated for shaving points. He loses his basketball scholarship to Duke University because he admits to shaving points in two games. Basketball has always been his greatest passion and he sees it as his "way out", but in Season Five, a fight leaves Nathan near-paralyzed and his dreams shattered, though he later regains the use of his legs and slowly starts to make a comeback in basketball.
Hilarie Burton portrays Peyton Sawyer, whose two greatest passions in life are music and art; she is an expert in the PUNK ROCK genre and uses her art to express the issues that play out in her life.
Brooke Davis is her best friend while also having Haley to talk to. In
season Two, she discovers that she is actually adopted. She has never
met her biological father although she has met his son, her
half-brother, Derek. After getting to know her birth mother, Ellie, she
loses her to breast cancer. In Season Four, Peyton decides to act on
her feelings for Lucas and they begin a relationship. This relationship
has ended between seasons Four and Five and in Season Five, a lonely
Peyton is working for a record company in LA. She and Brooke decide
return to Tree Hill, where she starts her own record label, Red Bedroom
Records, and battles her feelings for Lucas again. Lucas asks her to
marry him and she agrees.
Tree Hill is a small town in North Carolina, home to the famous High School basketball team "The Tree Hill Ravens" and two half-brothers Lucas Scott (played by Chad Michael Murray) and Nathan Scott (played by James Lafferty). The two brothers have grown up in the same town, but have had little or no contact with each other due to the influence of their mutual father, Dan Scott (Paul Johansson).
Dan dated Lucas' mother Karen Roe (Moira Kelly) in High School but left her and his unborn child (Lucas) behind to go to college and pursue a basketball scholarship. In college, he met Nathan's mother Deb (Barbara Alyn Woods) who also became pregnant. Dan married Deb and provided her and Nathan with a stable home and rich lifestyle. In stark contrast, he never once tried to become a part of Lucas' life. Lucas was raised single-handedly by Karen, with help from his paternal uncle Keith (Craig Sheffer), the father figure in his life.
Nathan plays for the Ravens, just as Dan did in his High School days but Lucas is forced to confine his talent to the River Court, until an opening in the lineup gives Keith an idea; he recommends Lucas to the Ravens' Coach, Whitey Durham (Barry Corbin) who asks Lucas to play. This adds to the tension between Lucas and Nathan. Nathan, encouraged by Dan, tries to make life on the team difficult for Lucas, especially since Lucas has his eye on Nathan's girlfriend Peyton Sawyer (Hilarie Burton). Peyton dumps Nathan when she tires of his attitude towards her, towards Lucas and towards the fact that Nathan is using Lucas' best friend Haley James (Bethany Joy Lenz) to get at Lucas. To Nathan's surprise, he falls in love with Haley and she with him, although their relationship puts a strain on Lucas and Haley's friendship.
Lucas starts dating Peyton's best friend Brooke Davis (Sophia Bush) but his feelings for Peyton resurface and they end up being unfaithful to Brooke, who wants nothing more to do with either of them once she finds out. Brooke has a pregnancy scare later in the season, putting Lucas in Dan's position; Lucas understands for the first time why Dan did what he did and decides that he doesn't want to do the same thing so he offers to be there for Brooke and the baby, leading a guilty Brooke to confess that she lied about being pregnant to punish Lucas for cheating on her with Peyton. Peyton gets close to single father Jake Jagielski (guest star, Bryan Greenberg) and his baby, Jenny, but the return of Jenny's mother Nicki (guest star, Emmanuelle Vaugier) and her decision to battle Jake for sole custody of Jenny drives Jake out of Tree Hill and leaves Peyton on her own.
Karen leaves for culinary school in Italy for a few weeks and leaves Lucas in Keith's care. Lucas almost dies in a car accident caused by Keith's drinking. He also sustains a very serious shoulder injury and Karen's potential romance with Keith is destroyed as a result. Deb tires of the pressure Dan puts on Nathan and seeks a divorce from Dan, but things turn nasty and Nathan is caught in the middle of his warring parents. After learning that Deb once had an affair, Nathan emancipates himself and moves into his own apartment. Karen and Deb become friends and go into partnership together at Karen's caf' while Keith is forced to sell his Auto-Shop to Dan to pay Lucas' medical bills. Keith proposes to Karen but she turns him down so he decides to leave Tree Hill and move to Charleston saying that he has nothing left in Tree Hill anymore.
In the season finale, the Playoffs have arrived and with Whitey in hospital having eye surgery, Dan is now coaching the team. Lucas and Nathan form a united front against their father but end up losing the Playoffs and their season is over. Lucas decides to move to Charleston with Keith and he and Nathan part on good terms. It is clear that Nathan and Haley have planned to do something after the Playoffs but it's unclear what exactly, though it is implied she is ready to lose her virginity to him. Dan walks in on Keith and Deb sleeping together and then suffers a massive heart attack the next morning as a result. Brooke and Peyton reunite and concoct a plan to get rid of Nicki; Brooke tells Nicki that Jake took Jenny to Seattle (he actually took her to Savannah) and Nicki sets off, leaving Brooke and Peyton delighted. They vow never to let another guy come between them again. Karen gives her consent for Lucas to leave with Keith, but reminds him; "There is only one Tree Hill - and it's your home". Lucas comes to Nathan's apartment to say goodbye to Haley and it seems obvious to him that they slept together, which surprises him as she had said that she would not sleep with anyone until she was married. He confronts Haley about it and is astounded when she announces that she and Nathan got married the night before. Following this groundbreaking revelation, Lucas and Keith leave Tree Hill.
After Lucas and Keith learn of Dan's heart attack, they return to Tree Hill and Dan decides he wants to get to know Lucas. Lucas cautiously enters into a relationship with his father. After Dan learns that Lucas has inherited his hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), the genetic defect which caused Dan's own heart attack, he convinces Lucas to move in with him and pays for his medication, keeping his condition a secret. Dan also agrees to stay away from Keith and his girlfriend Jules (guest star, Maria Menounos) as Lucas discovers that Dan hired Jules to make Keith fall in love with her and then break his heart to get back at Keith for sleeping with Deb. Jules leaves Keith at the altar and he leaves Tree Hill with a broken heart.
Nathan and Haley receive a visit from Haley's wild older sister, Taylor James (guest star, Lindsey McKeon) who is revealed to have been the first girl Nathan ever slept with, long before he met Haley. To make things worse, the marriage is tested even further with the arrival of Chris Keller (guest star, Tyler Hilton), a musician who convinces Haley to leave Nathan and Tree Hill to come on tour with him. In despair, Nathan attempts to kill himself by crashing a race-car but a dream makes him realize that he has to get on with life without Haley and so he allows papers to be drawn up to annul their marriage.
Peyton starts an all-ages club named TRIC but at the same time, finds herself tempted to take drugs and enters a dark place in her life, which Jake helps her out of when he returns. Jake and Peyton fall in love and begin a relationship, but Jake is forced to leave Peyton and Tree Hill once again when Nicki kidnaps Jenny and disappears with her. Brooke begins the season by forming a "Friends With Benefits" arrangement with her new neighbour, Felix Taggarro (guest star, Michael Copon), but after her parents lose all their money, Brooke discovers an inner strength she never knew she had. She runs for Student Council President and is elected over her bitter opponent, Erica Marsh (guest star, Katherine Bailess). She dumps Felix after discovering he vandalized Peyton's locker and Felix is sent to Military School by his parents. Brooke gets close to Lucas and moves into his old bedroom after her parents move to California. It is rumored that the WB show producers needed to get rid of Michael Copon because the character he portrayed on the show was more successful than expected and they were afraid that Copon would steal the spotlight from Chad Michael Murray if his character, Felix, was to have a permanant role on the show. Season 2 boasted the highest One Tree Hill viewer ratings in the shows history so far.
Lucas dates Felix's sister Anna (guest star, Daniella Alonso) but ends things with her after realizing that he loves Brooke. Anna's break-up with Lucas leaves her confused about her sexuality. After kissing Peyton in a misunderstanding, Anna starts coming to terms with the fact that she is bisexual. After coming out to her parents, Anna returns to her old Boarding School to be with her girlfriend.
Dan and Deb reconcile, united in their disapproval of Nathan's marriage. Lucas finds out Deb has developed an addiction to painkillers and after Nathan's car accident, she tries to overcome it by going to rehab, blaming her unhappy marriage to Dan for her addiction. Karen dates her business professor, the much younger Andy Hargrove (guest star, Kieren Hutchison), who makes an enemy out of Dan.
In the season finale, Andy is forced to return to New Zealand and look after his mother when she becomes very ill. Karen decides to go after him and is concerned that he hasn't checked into his hotel. Before Karen leaves Tree Hill, she thinks she sees Keith on the street opposite the caf'. Deb is discharged from rehab and learns that Dan tried to make Nathan feel guilty for her addiction. Deb tells Nathan that she wants them to make a fresh start away from Tree Hill and Lucas gives her the ledger of Dan's illegal business activities, which Andy uncovered. Dan blackmails Deb into giving the ledger back to him and disowns Lucas for betraying him. Nathan also disowns Lucas because he is angry with him for interfering in his family. Dan learns that Whitey has been telling Deb and Nathan a few home truths about him and threatens to have him fired. Lucas finally tells Brooke how he feels about her but she leaves for a summer in California without telling him how she herself feels. Peyton receives chilling instant-messages from someone named "WATCHMEWATCHU" and believes that it is the mysterious reporter, Ellie Harp (guest star, Sheryl Lee). Ellie comes to Peyton's house and shocks Peyton by telling her that she is her mother. Dan finds a white substance on the rim of a bottle left for him anonymously at the dealership and discovers he has been poisoned. Before Dan falls unconscious, a black-clad figure enters his office and sets it alight. Nathan moves back in with Deb but gets a surprise when he arrives home to find Haley on his doorstep. Lucas and Peyton find themselves alone on the beach together and realize that it's just the two of them this summer.
Everyone returns to Tree Hill High to begin their senior year and basketball practice starts up again. Whitey reveals to the Ravens that win or lose, this is his last season as coach while Lucas tries to conceal his HCM from Karen and Whitey, despite the serious impact it is having on his performance.
Dan survives the dealership fire and eventually realizes that Lucas rescued him. Dan decides to run for Mayor but gets a nasty shock when Karen announces that she is running against him. Dan bribes Deb to stay with him until he is named Mayor, however after Dan wins the election Deb flees Tree Hill when Lucas tells her that he knows she started the fire to try to kill Dan. Keith returns and Karen realizes how much she cares for him, thus resulting in the two dating, and eventually getting engaged. Dan is convinced that Keith tried to kill him and sets about plotting his revenge.
Newcomer Rachel Gatina (Danneel Harris) tries to come between Lucas and Brooke before setting her sights on Mouth McFadden (Lee Norris). Mouth falls for Rachel only to discover that she is seeing Nathan's uncle, Cooper Lee (guest star, Michael Trucco) who is oblivious to Rachel's true age, 17. Rachel opens the Time Capsule recorded in Season Two and exposes it to the whole school in an attempt to cause trouble, but neither Rachel nor anyone else is prepared for the damage it causes; after Lucas and Mouth's former friend, Jimmy Edwards (guest star, Colin Fickes), is bullied and tormented for voicing his contempt towards other students on the Time Capsule, he takes the school hostage with a gun. Peyton gets shot in the leg and kisses Lucas when he looks after her in the library, the kiss taking on a greater significance than either of them will admit. Dan allows Keith into the school, Keith being convinced he can get through to Edwards, however Edwards ends up taking his own life and when Dan finds Keith kneeling over Edwards' body, Dan picks up the gun and fatally shoots his brother, making everyone assume that Jimmy Edwards murdered Keith.
After Jimmy Edwards takes the school hostage and Keith dies, the gang decides to go to Rachel's cabin in the woods in order to get away from all the mayhem. In which they all re-evaluate their lives: Nathan proposes to Haley again and they move back in together. Brooke moves in with Peyton who has a brief relationship with Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy before going to find Jake and Jenny in Savannah. Lucas tells Karen and Whitey about his HCM results, then quits the Ravens. And Dan is haunted by visions of Keith as a child. Peyton asks Jake to marry her, but Jake realizes that Peyton is in love with Lucas and sends her back to Tree Hill to deal with her feelings for him. Peyton confesses to a shocked Brooke that she still loves Lucas.
In the season finale, Nathan and Haley renew their vows in a beautiful ceremony in front of their family and friends. Deb has returned to Tree Hill and when she discovers that Dan thinks Keith was responsible for the dealership fire, she sets the record straight and tells him that she tried to kill him. Dan realizes that he killed his brother for no reason and breaks down at Keith's grave. Later, Karen tells Dan that she is having Keith's baby and Dan promises Karen that he will be there for her this time. Brooke is not speaking to Peyton and when Lucas lets slip that he and Peyton kissed on the day of the school shooting, she is devastated and tells Peyton that as far as she is concerned, their friendship is over. Rachel is bitter over Cooper's rejection and drunkenly tells everyone at Nathan and Haley's wedding reception that Cooper slept with her even though he knew that she was only 17. Rachel takes off in the wedding limo with Cooper and his attempts to talk her round eventually work. As Lucas and Karen leave the reception, he finds a pregnancy test in someone's purse. Lucas asks his mother if she is pregnant and she tells him that she is - but that's not her purse. Rachel asks Cooper if there is anything that she can say to keep him. He solemnly tells her that there isn't, prompting Rachel to reveal something that causes a ferocious argument between them when Cooper refuses to believe her. Rachel grabs control of the wheel and after a near-collision with Nathan and Haley (en route to London for their honeymoon), the limo veers off the bridge and into the water. Against Haley's wishes, Nathan dives in to save them but ends up becoming trapped and stuck for air himself. And when Dan gets home he finds the word "MURDERER" smeared on his wall - someone knows what he did.
As the end of High School approaches, everyone finds themselves at a crossroads in their lives. Nathan survives the accident and after some initial confusion, Haley is revealed to be pregnant while Rachel turns her attentions to Nathan after Cooper leaves town, using Nathan's theory that it was really Keith who saved him from the accident to get Nathan's attention. Rachel backs off when she learns that Haley is pregnant and Nathan later learns that he had a vision of Keith and it was this vision that gave him the strength to get out of the water.
Shortly after finishing her friendship with Peyton, Brooke also breaks up with Lucas and then moves in with Rachel. Rachel sets Brooke up on a date with an older guy, Nick Chavez (guest star, Reynaldo Valentin), who turns out to be Brooke's new teacher. After Brooke dumps Nick for cheating on her, Rachel informs Brooke that she is failing calculus and together, the two girls steal the calculus test from school but to cover their tracks, they are forced to join the "Clean Teens: Virgins for Life". Newcomer Chase Adams (guest star, Stephen Colletti) also joins the Clean Teens and he and Brooke begin dating while Rachel is expelled for taking the fall for the stolen calculus test, later leaving Tree Hill with Mouth, who returns alone after Rachel goes AWOL.
Skills Taylor (Antwon Tanner) becomes a Raven and Lucas is granted permission from Whitey to rejoin the team (as long as he keeps taking his heart medication and doesn't play for more than fifteen minutes per game). In the run-up to the State Championship, Nathan borrows money from a loan shark, Daunte Jones (guest star, Rick Fox), who tells Nathan that the only way he can repay his debt is by shaving points in the semi-final and then by losing the State Championship. When the Ravens actually end up winning, Daunte attempts to run over Nathan with his car but instead hits Haley and she is rushed to hospital along with Lucas, who had a heart attack because he didn't take his medication before the game. While Lucas is unconscious, he has a vision of Keith, who shows Lucas how he has changed so many lives for the better and also tries to help Lucas remember what he saw on the day of the school shooting. Lucas wakes up with serious doubts about who killed Keith. Meanwhile, Dan is in jail, covering for Nathan who beat Daunte to death in a rage for running Haley down. Daunte's autopsy results, however, show that he was killed in the car accident he had after hitting Haley, and not by the beating he was given so Dan is released and Nathan is overjoyed to learn that both Haley and the baby are going to be fine.
When Karen discovers that Dan was protecting Nathan all along, she starts to let Dan back in, realizing that he wants to be there for her and the baby. Deb, however, alienates everyone, including Karen, when her pill addiction resurfaces and she ends up overdosing. To keep Deb on the straight and narrow, Nathan and Haley move in with her and throw a party on the night before prom where Mouth loses his virginity to Clean Teen Shelly Simon (guest star, Elisabeth Harnois), who runs out on him afterwards, and a tape from Nathan's past shows him having sex with Brooke after him and Peyton had broken up. Chase breaks up with Brooke because of this, revealing the reason that he broke up with his ex-girlfriend was because she cheated on him with his best friend. Brooke's hopes of rekindling her friendship with Peyton are diminished as a result but when she learns that Peyton isn't coming to prom, she goes looking for her and finds her tied up in the basement by her stalker, Ian Banks (guest star, Matt Barr), who terrorized her earlier in the season by posing as the half-brother she never knew she had, Derek Sommers (guest star, Ernest Waddell) and by sending her instant-messages under the username of "WATCHMEWATCHU". The two girls defeat Ian together and restore their friendship in the process, moving into Nathan and Haley's old apartment together.
At prom, Lucas realizes that a student named Abby Brown (guest star, Allison Scagliotti) witnessed Keith's murder and he confronts her about it - she tells him that Dan was the one who killed Keith, however Karen (having kissed Dan) refuses to believe Lucas. Lucas steals Deb's gun and is about to shoot Dan when Karen collapses and is rushed to hospital with eclampsia. After an emergency C-section, Karen gives birth to a baby girl, Lily, though her own life hangs in the balance. Dan, meanwhile, turns himself in to the police.
Having finally gotten together, things are going well between Lucas and Peyton until she is offered an internship in Los Angeles. Chase and Brooke get back together and Brooke owns up to stealing the calculus test, though is still allowed to graduate while Nathan also owns up to his point-shaving; Duke retract their scholarship offer but Whitey is offered a coaching job at a nearby college and convinces Nathan to come with him as his star player. At graduation, Haley goes into labor during her valedictory speech.
In the season finale, Nathan and Haley become the proud parents of a baby boy named James Lucas Scott, choosing Lucas and Brooke as godparents, while Deb, in her role as the grandmother, seems to have finally found happiness. Chase and Brooke consummate their relationship while Rachel returns to Tree Hill and throws a party for everyone. Mouth does something he's always wanted to do and kisses Brooke, while also making his peace with Shelly. Karen takes Lily to Keith's grave and says they are going to visit him every day while Dan's attempt to hang himself in prison fails. Karen visits Dan (only to tell him that one day she'll have to explain to Lily that her father was killed by the brother he loved so much) but Lucas and Nathan both agree that they never want to see Dan again. Lucas reveals that he will be Whitey's Assistant Coach at college and supports Peyton as she and Brooke prepare to go to LA together. In the closing scene of the season, everyone heads to the River Court for a game of basketball; boys against the girls. The entire gang spray-paint their signatures on the river court around the words "We Were Here." Season Four ends much the same as Season One began, with Nathan and Lucas playing a one-on-one game.
Four and a half years have passed since High School graduation. Lucas is now coaching the Ravens with the assistance of Skills and is in a relationship with his book editor, Lindsey Strauss (guest star, Michaela Mc Manus), who urges him to write a second novel that will match the success of his first. Nathan and Haley are raising their son Jamie (Jackson Brundage) in Tree Hill, where an accident four months previously left Nathan near-paralyzed and his basketball dreams diminished. Haley is a teacher at Tree Hill High while Mouth is an unemployed sportscaster looking for work. Brooke is undoubtedly the most successful of the group, having turned Clothes Over Bros into a multi-million dollar company, which she is running from New York. Peyton is in Los Angeles working as "the assistant's assistant" at a record company. Feeling undervalued and disrespected, she quits and after talking on the phone, she and Brooke realize that they will never be as happy as they were in Tree Hill so they return home together.
In Tree Hill, Brooke opens a Clothes Over Bros store in place of Karen's Caf' (Karen and Lily having left Tree Hill to travel the world) and buys a new house for herself and Peyton. Her company CEO is later revealed to be her over-controlling, cold-hearted mother Victoria, (guest-star Daphne Zuniga) who comes to Tree Hill and tries to get things back under her control, undermining Brooke and her friends. Brooke begins dating TRIC bartender Owen (guest star Joe Manganiello), and takes him to New York where they stumble upon Rachel who has taken an overdose in Brooke's apartment. After Victoria forced Brooke to fire her from her job as a Clothes Over Bros model, Rachel's drug woes spiralled out of control. After Owen revives her and Brooke takes her back to Tree Hill, Rachel begins to get her life back on track, but Victoria lashes out at her and Rachel leaves for parts unknown with Brooke's money. When she learns that Victoria was responsible for Rachel's departure, Brooke fires her - both as her CEO and her mother.
Peyton starts her own record label, funded by Brooke, and finds her first artist Mia Catallano (guest star, Kate Voegele) in a group with a cocky lead singer named Jason (guest star, Kevin Federline) whom she fires over his attitude problem. Peyton soon turns Mia into a star and is then approached by Haley, who has decided to make a comeback in music. Meanwhile, Peyton also struggles with her feelings for Lucas, creating some animosity between her and Lindsey, who is revealed to have become Lucas' editor the day after he and Peyton broke up when she turned down his proposal three years earlier. After Lucas and Peyton inevitably kiss, he and Lindsey get engaged and Peyton tells Lucas that she will sacrifice her love for him to be a good friend, just as Keith did for Karen all those years ago. Peyton and Lindsey also bury the hatchet but Peyton finds it difficult to watch as Lucas and Lindsey prepare to marry.
Mouth finally finds himself a job in the archiving department at a local TV station. He begins an unexpected affair with his boss, Alice (guest star, Kelly Collins Lintz) which kick-starts his career but he begins to feel bad about it and starts dating Brooke's assistant Millicent Huxtable (guest star Lisa Goldstein), so Alice fires him. However, he manages to keep his job when at the last minute another office affair involving Alice is exposed, as she was sleeping with several other employees. He is given an on air position but loses it after refusing to air Lucas' blow-up. His relationship with Millicent goes from strength to strength when she moves in with him, Skills, Junk and Fergie. Tim and Bevin are revealed to have married and had a son, Nathan, together.
Nathan gets his life back on track, realising that he is at risk of losing Haley and Jamie if he continues drinking himself into oblivion. He becomes a mentor to Quentin Fields (guest star, Robbie Jones) a Raven and troublesome student of Haley's while Haley hires a nanny named Carrie (guest star, Torrey De Vitto) for Jamie, though Carrie is soon revealed to be psychotic - she tries to seduce Nathan and claim him and Jamie for herself. When Carrie climbs into the shower with Nathan, he does nothing to stop her, believing her to be Haley. When Haley catches them together, she throws them both out and after Jamie almost drowns while Nathan and Haley are arguing, Haley tells Nathan that she wants a divorce. After serving five years in prison for Keith's murder, Dan is released on parole.
In the show's one hundreth episode, Lucas and Lindsey's wedding day dawns. Karen and Lily return for the occasion with Andy, who has begun seeing Karen again. Haley confronts Lucas about the copy of his second novel, which he gave her to read - she believes it to be a story about his love for Peyton, though Lucas denies this. Dan shows up at the church but is turned away by Haley, who continues to give Nathan the cold shoulder as he dreams of a reconciliation. At the altar, Lucas makes his vows and Peyton is devastated as she watches on from the congregation, but as Lindsey is making her vows, she makes the same realisation as Haley - that Lucas' story is about his love for Peyton. Because of this, Lindsey leaves Lucas at the altar and Brooke later reveals to Peyton her desire to start a family. Before they can discuss this any further, Mouth and Millicent arrive with the news that Jamie has been abducted. After his earlier appearance, everyone believes Dan to have taken Jamie, though his captor is revealed to be Carrie, who is followed by Dan. He threatens to kill her if she ever comes near his family again and later returns Jamie to a relieved Nathan and Haley. Everyone is horrified when Dan shows up at the house, this being the first time many have seen him since he was convicted for Keith's murder five years previously.
Four weeks pass and after marriage counselling, Nathan and Haley reunite, hiring Deb to be Jamie's new nanny and bringing their family back together. Nathan decides he wants to make a comeback in basketball, while Peyton agrees to record an album with Haley and Deb and Skills sleep together after meeting online, unaware of who the other person was. Dan tries to become a part of Jamie's life, though Nathan, Haley and Deb forbid it, causing Dan to reveal that he is dying of HCM and wants to use the six months he has left to make amends with his family.
Brooke begins to work on having her own family, announcing that she wants to have a baby. Turned down for adoption, she is given temporary custody of Angie, a little girl from a foreign country who is in the US for special surgery, leading Owen to break up with her, using his good friend Chase, Brooke's Clean Teen ex, as the messenger. Through her struggles with being a mother and taking care of the baby, she gets closer to Lucas and is relieved that Angie's surgery is a success. Lucas convinces Lindsey to continue her work on editing his novel, hoping that this will bring them back together, though Lindsey insists to Lucas that she has moved on and is now seeing someone else. As a result, an enraged Lucas attacks a player at one of the games, getting himself suspended from coaching, before drowning his sorrows at TRIC and telling Peyton he hates her and she ruined his life.
In the season finale, Brooke is heartbroken when she must send Angie home and turns to Lucas for support. After a week of binge-drinking, Lucas decides he needs to make some important choices about his future while Peyton tries to deal with Lucas' revelation that he hates her. Lucas visits Peyton and tells her that this is not the case; its just difficult for him to see her again after all this time. Lindsey returns to give Lucas the finished copy of his novel and to say goodbye. She later leaves him a message, informing him that she is not seeing anyone and that she misses him everyday. With Millicent's support, Mouth quits his job and appears to be contemplating a transfer to Omaha. Skills and Deb continue their clandestine relationship while Nathan and Haley are pleased when Jamie overcomes his fear of going back in the pool after his near-drowning experience there. Dan contemplates killing Reverend Carter, the critically ill man who is ahead of him on the waiting list for a heart transplant, but later decides not to for Jamie's sake. Nature takes its course and the reverend passes away. Dan is overjoyed but is ironically knocked down by a car moments before his bleeper goes off to tell him he is ready for his transplant. Nathan and Haley both celebrate comebacks in their respective fields of basketball and music when he scores against Quentin and she records her new song. At the airport, Lucas makes a phone call. Brooke (waiting for a call about Angie), Peyton (waiting for a call about her mother) and Lindsey (waiting for a business call) simultaneously answer their phones and Lucas tells the girl on the receiving end that he has two tickets to Las Vegas and invites her, to come with him tonight and get married.
Lucas called and asked Peyton to come to the airport and go to Las Vegas with him to get married. Finding the Las Vegas wedding idea to be too tacky, Lucas and Peyton leave and Peyton brings him back to the hotel room where Lucas had originally proposed years before. He proposes to her again and she accepts before he can officially ask, "Will You Marry Me?" Mouth accepts the job in Omaha and leaves together with Millicent. Nathan becomes more peeved with his mother over her online relationship, who we know is in fact with Skills, as their relationship becomes more serious. It is revealed that Dan, who was very badly wounded in the season finale after being hit by a car, was transported to the hospital as a John Doe and brought back to stable condition. There, Nanny Carrie, having returned to Tree Hill, was the one who hit Dan with her car. She is keeping him locked inside a room in her house, torturing him through lack of morphine, etc, as revenge for keeping her away from Jamie, who she has vowed to get back. Brooke's mother is trying to take her company from her, which legally she may be able to do. Brooke becomes infuriated and decides to take on her mother in the court system. At the end of the episode, Brooke has locked all the sketches for her new designs in her drawer, but upon trying to leave the store, she is attacked by a masked figure and is badly beaten.
