On One Tree Hill, no relationship is safe for long.  Inevitably someone else comes between them or outside forces conspire to break a couple apart.  Now that season 7 is going strong, it's time for One Tree Hill to start throwing some monkey wrenches into the loves lives of all the characters.

In last night's episode, all the major relationships were threatened.  Unless your man is a pilot/bar manager who's a little quick on the draw in the bedroom, odds are your relationship started to crumble on One Tree Hill.

What is Renee's Endgame?

After bonding with her cellmates, Haley met with the woman claiming to be the mom of Nathan's illegitimate love child and Renee gave some more reason for doubt when she told Haley to check to phone bills.  Despite claiming she is 100 percent behind her man, Haley's doubts were confirmed when she found the number.

But I still don't fully understand the plan.  Nathan is very convincing in his denials, and I don't think Nathan Scott is a good enough actor to pull off a convincing lie.  So what is Renee trying to do?  Your guess is as good as mine, but I'm sticking by my original theory: she's actually Nanny Carrie's sister and is trying to exact revenge on Nathan and Haley.

"Does Brooke Davis Have to Slap a Bitch?"

Brooke knows a thing or two about girls who get spontaneously naked to seduce a man, so she has every right to be worried that model Alex is making a move on her man.  I would suggest trusting Julian, but a mutual love for Grease 2 is a powerful thing.  I want to trust both Alex and Julian, but I can't, so in my opinion, yes, Brooke Davis does have to slap a bitch.

Mouth and the Turd Sandwich

Things are even rocky for the nerdiest couple on One Tree Hill, Mouth and Millie.  He's down in the dumps after getting demoted, but Millie is soaring high now that she's a model.  But didn't she read the comments on the website?  People think she looks like a Turd Sandwich, and Turd Sandwiches can't be models.  As beautiful as Millie is, she needs to stop and realize that she isn't some glamorous wild child, so in spite of my better judgment, I have to side with Mouth on this one.

A Clay-tonic Friendship

Perhaps the show's weirdest revelation is that Clay and Quinn are NOT having sex.  Despite the fact that she's obviously using him to ditch her husband, these two sexy adults are living together, but not sleeping together.  There is definitely more to this story than meets the eye, and I think it has everything to do with the real reason Quinn left her husband.  She might say it's because they grew apart, but I think she's hiding something, maybe a serious illness.  But I might just be thinking of Brothers and Sisters.
