This is a continuation from the one tree hill saga, but today we’re going to look at the love story between Lucas and Brooke which is pretty confusing. He’s basically had a crush on her since forever and she’s like the it’s girl in the movie. Nobody messes with Brooke and she’s head of the cheerleading team. Enough said? With this in mind, Lucas is like the cool bad boy who’s super misunderstood. He likes reading books and is pretty quiet. Not shy, but just the good boy with rugged looks. His half brother is Nathan who always gets into trouble. Either way, when Lucas and Brooke starts going out it’s clear from the very beginning of them dating that he actually likes Peyton. The opening scene of the whole series is Peyton breaking down and Lucas coming to fix her car. This is the first scene that they meet and it’s actually really cute but underrated that they end up together.
I always wonder, with couples who finally end up together at the very, even in real life, if they had to go through all that separation to grow in a way that would bring them back together. Or maybe, they just wouldn’t have worked at that time. Either way you look at it, it’s crazy to think that while you’re watching the show for the first time, you have no idea who’s going to end up together and a lot of that has to do with the fact that they all really love each other. It’s not like Lucas was pretending when he was with Brooke. He really liked her and she really liked him but they just needed that time together to find who they were really looking for. The person that Brooke ends up with isn’t the complete opposite of Lucas but he is different in many ways. Also, as they go through the seasons they mature in terms of what they’re looking for and who they are as people. It’s really fun to watch it again and see how young or foolish they were, knowing what’s coming in the later episodes. This is especially true of Lucas and Peyton because at some points there are no guarantees that they’re going to end up together and you just have to hope for the best that they will, because you just don’t know. I think that everyone who watches the show wants Lucas and Peyton together but there are no guarantees until they actually get married. There is even one episode where Lucas almost marries another woman – actually if I remember correctly he actually does marry her? But maybe I’m wrong. Either way, they both get very close to closing off a future together and then somehow, they manage to end up together. I don’t know if that’s super unrealistic, of if it’s supposed to give you hope for the future.
