Anchors Away!

The Games That Play Us - Oh, wait. Wrong show. Perhaps I've blocked out the utter cheesefest that happens to be the OTH season ender. First, the Ravens lose their first playoff game. Next, Dan peaks and has a heart attack. Then, just as Nathan and Luke start acting like brothers, the latter leaves town to "find himself." Oh, and last but not outrageously least, Nathan and Haley get hitched.

Carnival of Carnality

The Blame Game

With Arms Outstretched - Nathan feels pressure to perform both from Whitey and Dan, so he decides to enhance his performance by using amphetamines.

Also, Dan acts like an ass, Deb kicks him out of the house, Whitey pulls the plug on b-ball until further notice, and Luke gets drunk, makes out with Brooke, and then finds out that Peyton's been pining for him all along.
