Nathan (James Lafferty) grows more afraid for his own future, as mistakes from the past return to haunt both Nathan and Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti).

Guest star Allison Scagliotti-Smith returns as Abby Brown. Other guest stars in this episode of One Tree Hill include Sean Young (Blade Runner, No Way Out) as Hope Brown, and Matt Barr once again as “Psycho Derek.”

Here’s a quick description of next week’s One Tree Hill episode, “Ashes of Dreams You Let Die.”

Brooke hopes that yearbook signatures will help her reconnect with Chase, as Haley tries to write a speech, as she’s been named valedictorian. Karen worries about Lucas’ preoccupation with Keith’s murder, and Dan thinks Lucas needs professional help.
