Luke contemplates the hoop down at the River Courts. So we know it's after midnight. Do none of these kids have a curfew? Anyway, a tearful Brooke approaches Luke, saying that she needs to talk to him. He says quietly, "Okay." She launches right into it: "I spent the entire night trying to avoid this or ignore it, but I can't so I've just got to say it." Brooke, what's up? She says, "I think I'm pregnant." And I know we've said it loud, we've said it on the forums, we've said it to each other, and we've screamed it on the mountain tops, but does no one in Tree Hill know how to effectively use birth control? And why is pregnancy the issue du jour for every single person on this damn show? Can we not get through a season without someone having a kid they don't want? How many public service announcements for the dangers and troubles of unplanned pregnancy can we honestly take? It's just way, way too over the top. Enough with the drama already, it's overwhelmingly idiotic. Shall I tell you how I really feel?
Next week on OTH: Luke and Brooke walk away together. Nathan yells at Haley, "You'll do something that permanent but you won't have sex with me?" Luke gets into it with Nathan about the kiss with Peyton. Luke tells Karen that Brooke's pregnant, and she slaps him. Dan confronts Luke, who says, "Your advice is to abort a child the way you would have aborted me?" Ouch. Luke cries on his mommy's shoulder because he doesn't know what he's going to do. I guess there's no end to the drama next week. What was I thinking?
