Last night’s episode of One Tree Hill, Anyone Who Had A Heart, was the second to last episode, ever. Since our beloved series is coming to a close, it made sense that this episode began tying up all the lose ends that have been frayed over the years. So let’s dig in!
The episode focused primarily on Brooke. With Julian trying to perfect the angle for his TV Show centering around B. Davis, Brooke offered him a glimpse of what it was like for her growing up.

Who? Her father. Brooke leaves completely disgusted and asking if it’s possible to poke your minds eye out. Great question.
In the end it all works out okay though,thanks to the return of Tree Hill’s burning boat festival. Brooke decides to throw her diary away because she wants to let go of that part of her life, which was perfect timing since earlier in the day her parents showed up at her house telling her that they aren’t selling Bakerman. In fact they’re going to run it together as a family because it’s what Brooke really wanted. Cue the three of them watching the boat burn, and sitting like a family just as Brooke always wished for.
Also getting what he’s always wished for was Clay. Continue reading here…
