Previously on One Tree Hill: Lucas flew off to L.A. to meet with Julian about the movie, Peyton got some news from her doctor, Brooke learned the identity of her attacker, Sam ran away, Nathan tried out for the pros, and Millie and Owen found themselves looking for some sexual healing.

Peyton (Hilarie Burton) tearfully calls Lucas (Chad Michael Murray) late at night and says she can’t call him her fiancé, because now she has to call him her baby daddy. Peyton’s preggers! Nathan (James Lafferty) gets a call of his own letting him know he is now a player for the Charleston Chiefs. Good news for everyone.

Well, good news for everyone in the Scott family, at least. Mouth (Lee Norris) is complaining to Skills about losing Millie and Brooke (Sophia Bush) is scrambling to find Sam. Speaking of that little girl, she’s woken up Jack’s Quentin-murdering brother, who isn’t happy about Sam taking the drawings stolen from Clothes Over Bros. He’s giving Dan a run for his money in the “super creepy” department.

It turns out Jack wasn’t the one who beat up Brooke, it was his brother. Jack tries to defend Sam and gets a slap in the mouth for his trouble. The brother locks the two kids into a bedroom where Jack manages to pry a window open to flee. Sam, unfortunately, gets caught by the brother, thrown onto the bed, and menaced with duct tape. I miss the wacky psychotic Nanny Carrie, because this violent, murdering potential rapist is way too upsetting.

Brooke recruits Peyton and Julian in her madcap quest to find Sam. She remembers the boy in Sam’s room and asks Haley to give her Jack Daniels’ address. Brooke drives over alone to the house of the creepy, Quentin-killin’ man who has Sam duct taped in the back. I feel dirty just watching this guy, talking about sex and admiring Brooke’s “purty” mouth. As she walks away, she recognizes the voice as that of her attacker.

Brooke barges back in and maces the creep then kicks the crap out of him. She finds Sam and tries to leave, but she’s tackled and chased by her attacker. Finally she crawls to her purse and takes out her gun, pointing it at his head and threatening to kill him. However, Brooke is won over by the love of Sam, so she just pistol whips him instead. The cops arrive and everything gets tied up with a neat little bow when they find Quentin’s wallet.
