Following on the momentum begun by “You and Me and the Bottle Makes Three Tonight,“ The CW released two new videos today pertaining to this Monday’s new episode of One Tree Hill. Last week’s episode was intense, with Peyton facing the real possibility of death rather than getting an abortion. “Searching For a Former Clarity” looks less weighty but still very dramatic.

According to the official episode preview, ” Lucas (Chad Michael Murray) and Julian (guest star Austin Nichols) hit a setback with the production of the film.  Peyton (Hilarie Burton) and Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti) help Mia (guest star Kate Voegele) with her new single.  Brooke (Sophia Bush) must intervene when Sam (guest star Ashley Rickards) is arrested.  Jamie (Jackson Brundage) discovers the truth about Dan (Paul Johansson) and Uncle Keith.”

In the first clip Mark Schwann previews “Searching for a Former Clarity,” calling it “big,”  “a throwback” and “soapy.” He hints at the direction that the Jamie storyline is going this week and, as usual, does his best to sell the episode without giving too much away.

The second clip is from the One Tree Hill episode itself. Haley faces the school principal and learns what her choices are for resolving her suspension. I’ll give you a clue. One’s terrible and the other is a pink slip. Last we heard Haley had some other fantasies for what direction she wanted her life to go and so did Nathan. The storyline would have it that the principal is barking up the wrong tree here. But why do I get the impression she’s not?

Will Haley cave? Will Peyton rethink her decision? Will Brooke let down her guard? Vote in our poll and comment below, then watch One Tree Hill‘s new episode “Searching For a Former Clarity”
