'One Tree Hill' Afterthoughts: Lucas Is Finally Back — Relive His Big Adventure In Tree Hill!

Lucas must have gotten Haley’s letters, because the Nov. 2 episode of ‘One Tree Hill’ marked his speechless return.

I say “speechless,” of course, because it wasn’t technically Lucas in the conventional sense of the word. As in… not Chad Michael Murray. In fact, it was just a dummy that Skills (Antwon Tanner) dressed in Lucas’ Ravens jersey and decorated with some permanent marker facial hair. Lots of other silly things happened tonight, like drunk shopping, face slapping and plot scheming! Just another week in Tree Hill.

Desperate to find a best man, Julian (Austin Nichols) organized a poker game with the guys, but messed up big time by bringing along Alex (Jana Kramer) because, as we all know, drama tends to follow Alex like the ghost of Uncle Keith haunts Dan Scott’s every waking moment. She planned on getting back on Chase’s (Stephen Colletti) good side, but instead accidentally let it slip that she slept with Clay (Robert Buckley) way back when.

Meanwhile, Brooke (Sophia Bush) went wedding shopping with Julian’s mom (the epic Sharon Lawrence), who had a little too much to drink and passed out on the floor. Fortunately, this freed Brooke up to go home and deliver the best line of the episode, referring to the Lucas doll as Julian’s “best mannequin” since he did, in fact, choose it. Brooke Davis hasn’t lost her wit.

And what the whaaaaat is up with Erin? She agreed to work with Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti) at Red Bedroom Records, and she made a crazy little face when she walked through the door. She’s scheming something big. Someone on the staff thinks she might secretly be a man, but I’m not naming names.

What do YOU think is up with Erin?
