- ―Brooke Davis on the last episode
Brooke Baker (née Davis), better known both personally and professionally as Brooke Davis is a fashion designer and entrepreneur originated from Tree Hill, North Carolina. The daughter and only child of Robert ("Ted") and Victoria Davis, Brooke is among the original core five characters.
Originally portrayed as outgoing and promiscuous, she fell for Lucas early in season one and revealed herself to be a much less confident and insecure girl. She had her heart broken twice by him due to the complicated relationship he held with her best friend, Peyton. During high school, she attempted to mend her broken heart by creating Clothes Over Bro's (C/B), a fashion venture that would prove to become a million-dollar enterprise after graduation. During this time, she befriended former rival Rachel Gatina and eventually began a relationship with Tree Hill newcomer Chase Adams.
After the series' time jump in season five, however, Brooke was depicted as the highly successful owner and head designer at Clothes Over Bro's, though she was seen as having problems with her mother and company CEO, Victoria Davis. Despite her being appeared as happy and content in her life in New York, she felt as though money and power were not enough to warrant happiness and, upon speaking with Peyton during a phone conversation, moves back to Tree Hill. As a young adult (15-23) over the course of the fifth and sixth seasons, Brooke struggled to open her heart due to the numerous heartbreaks she faced during her childhood and late adolescence.
Upon their meeting in season six, her romance with filmmaker Julian Baker would change much of that. For the remainder of the series, the two would face numerous obstacles, namely Brooke's unwillingness to open herself to Julian, their attempt at maintaining a long-distance relationship, and the thorn in her side that was Alex Dupre. Despite a brief separation in the seventh season, Brooke and Julian were married in season eight amid the heartbreaking news of her inability to have children. Much to their surprise, however, Brooke gave birth to twin sons Davis and Jude Baker later in the season.
- When I was your age, I dreamed of having a clothing line ,of having a business. Of all the things you have. But I stupidly fell in love. And one morning, your father and I got a little surprise. I told him I didn't want kids. It was never the plan. But he wanted a son more than anything. And as soon as I got fat, he had an excuse to jump into any bed he wanted. And when we had our little baby girl, I made sure I would never be pregnant again. If I couldn't have my dream, your father couldn't have his, either. I probably took it out on you a little too much along the way, but you know what? You should be thanking me for giving you life.
- ―Victoria to her daughter
Brooke's mother, Victoria Anne Montgomery, was in love with a man of lower status to herself and her parents Mr and Mrs Montgomery didn't approve of their relationship and pushed her to leave her boyfriend and instead marry Ted Davis the son of the wealthy; Robert Davis Sr. After her marriage to Ted, Victoria's dreams collapse when she learned she was pregnant.

Brooke Penelope Davis was born in New Brunswick County Hospital in Tree Hill, North Carolina to parents Robert Theodore Davis and Victoria Anne Davis on March 4, 1988. She was born into a very privileged lifestyle but her parents paid her little attention and she often felt sidelined or unwanted. ("Things I Forgot at Birth")
At the age of nine, Brooke formed a close friendship with her classmate Peyton Sawyer after the death of Peyton's mother. In order to help Peyton through this difficult time, Brooke went to her house every day and spent time with her. As the two grew older, they grew closer and began to think of each other as sisters with the motto "hoes over bros" as they believed boys could never interfere with their close friendship. Upon reaching high school, Brooke had Morgan Finley (the head of cheerleader) as mentor and later became herself the head cheerleader and quickly developed a reputation around school as being outgoing and often promiscuous.
Brooke made a photo album of her birthdays throughout her life. From the age of nine, she spent every birthday with Peyton and every page in her album was full of pictures of the two best friends. They made a ritual that every year, they went into a mall towards closing time and Peyton would steal something for her best friend, as Brooke loved the adrenaline rush. When the girls went home, Peyton would tell her dad, who knew the manager, and they would give the money to him the following day. This was never told to Brooke. ("Things I Forgot at Birth") Sometimes, her father took her for a ride on his boat with Peyton ("The Desperate Kingdom of Love") .
Brooke was also heavily involved in her school, being captain of the cheerleading squad, Student Council Body President, Homecoming Queen, Founder of DWnotI and a member of both the Spirit Club and Clean Teens throughout her years in high school. ("Ashes of Dreams You Let Die") She began to keep a Diary. ("Anyone Who Had A Heart")
At 15 years old her father told her that her dress magnifed her. Later Brooke's husband blamed Ted for that ("Anyone Who Had A Heart").
At some point during their sophomore or junior year, a drunken Brooke found Nathan Scott, Peyton's boyfriend, at a party and after Nathan told her that Peyton broke up with him, again, they proceeded to sleep together (with Brooke admitting she was very drunk). While they prepared to have sex, Nathan set up his video camera and, although Brooke was initially unsure, Nathan promised her no one would ever see it. She then told him that she would "die if anybody saw it" but Nathan reassured her that no one would know and they slept together. ("Prom Night at Hater High")
During her teen years Brooke kept a diary. She wrote it regularly and often spoke of her parents and their lack of love for her.

Brooke's reputation around school continued into her junior year where she continued to head the cheer leading squad but her eye was caught by Lucas Scott, the newest member of the Ravens team and the half-brother of Nathan Scott. She let her best friend, Peyton Sawyer, know that she was interested in the new player, despite Lucas and Peyton sharing a connection that neither of them truly understood. Despite knowing that Peyton had some interest in Lucas, her being with Nathan allowed Brooke to playfully pursue Lucas. The difference between Brooke and Peyton soon became apparent, as Brooke was fully involved in high school life while Peyton saw more of the bigger picture wanting to break free from the elitist and popular world that Brooke cherished. However, Brooke told Peyton that she loved her because regardless of what problems she was going through, Peyton was always there with Brooke on game night — and she was one of them. ("The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most")
Brooke then started to actively pursue Lucas, using her signature move on him by climbing into the backseat of his car partially naked to try and seduce him. After they were caught by Coach Whitey Durham, Brooke asked Lucas how it felt to have his whole world change, given that his presence on the basketball team would make him one of the popular crowd. Peyton then noted that Brooke was being uncharacteristically persistent with Lucas, as she would have usually moved on by now, and Brooke responded that she maybe wants something real instead of meaningless flings. However, Lucas didn't see her this way and continued to play along with her flirtations still telling Brooke that she didn't have to act like that around him. ("Are You True?") ("Crash Into You")
On the anniversary of Peyton's mother's death, Peyton broke down in practice and took her anger out on Brooke, saying that she should be embarrassed that learning cheer routines, sleeping with popular guys and attending parties are the most important things in her life, leaving Brooke feeling hurt. However, knowing the reasons behind Peyton's problems, Brooke quickly let their argument go and by the time the first away game of the season arrived, they were back on talking terms. During the game, in which the Ravens headed to Pickerington to face the Pirates, Brooke was caught in between one of Lucas and Nathan's fights. When she was being treated by a medical student, she flirted with him, persuading him to give her extremely strong pain killers which she swallowed whole, despite his urgency that she should take half a pill every twelve hours. Extremely high, Brooke was forced to ride home with Peyton and subsequently asked Haley to join them. In the car ride that ensued, Brooke kept Haley and Peyton amused as they continued to bond and form a friendship. However, after her pills wore off she noticed her best friend's budding relationship with the tutor and commented that it was sad that they believed they could be friends back at school. ("All That You Can't Leave Behind") ("Every Night Is Another Story")
With the end of Nathan and Peyton's relationship apparent, Brooke started to meddle in their shattered romance. During class, Brooke told Nathan that she was bringing Peyton to the annual basketball appreciation party at the Scott household and lied to him, saying that Peyton wanted to get back together with him partly to reunite the couple, and partly to watch the fireworks. At the party, Brooke became drunk began messing up the budding relationships between Lucas and Peyton, and Nathan and Haley. First, while in Nathan's room, she found the exam preparation box Haley had given him containing an encouraging note, and chose to come in between Nathan and Haley and used it. When Haley arrived at the party, Brooke lied and told her that Nathan passed her note around, devastating Haley who then fled the party leaving her relationship with Nathan in pieces. Finally, in a bid to force Peyton to reveal her true feelings for Lucas, Brooke dared her to kiss him during a game of truth or dare, which she did, resulting in Nathan asking her why she was being such a bitch. ("Life in a Glass House")A more caring and remorseful Brooke came to light the morning after, when she awoke with a hazy memory and a guilty feeling and decided to swear off drinking to amend her karma. In a bid to make amends, Brooke organized a date between Nathan and a reluctant Haley and set them on their path to becoming a couple. To pick herself up, she took Peyton to a college party at Duke. Despite attracting the attention of many guys, Brooke's time at the party came to an end when she found a college student had drugged Peyton's drink and Brooke narrowly stopped him from raping her. After calling Lucas, they returned Peyton to her house and both spent the
night caring for her, prompting Lucas to see Brooke in a new light. Lucas and Brooke both then took an interest in each other and Brooke challenged Lucas to show his fun side by agreeing to go on a date with her. Brooke and Lucas spent the night at a bar, where Brooke brought out the fun side of Lucas and the night resulted in Lucas getting a tattoo. Brooke remained oblivious to the effect her budding relationship was having on Peyton and continued to pursue Luke. While spending the night at Lucas', their night was interrupted by Peyton who came to Luke's to confess her feelings to him but was stopped by Brooke's presence. While the three remained in an awkward silence, Brooke gave Peyton a look, signaling the start of their transformation from best friends to rivals for Lucas' affection. The situation left Lucas with a difficult choice to make between Peyton or Brooke. ("The Search for Something More") ("With Arms Outstretched")
Lucas chose Brooke, turning Peyton down, and the next morning introduced Brooke to Keith Scott as his new girlfriend, although Lucas initially wondered if he had made the right choice with Brooke citing to Haley that he chose Brooke because, unlike Peyton, she isn't covered head to toe in issues. Peyton initially avoided Brooke while at school and Brooke eventually caught up to her, asking to talk about Lucas. Despite Peyton's clear resentment of Brooke and Lucas' relationship, she kept quiet about her own feelings having seen how happy Brooke was. Brooke started to recognize that Lucas was causing a problem between her and Peyton, and went to her house to tell Peyton that she would never let a boy come between them - citing "hoes over bros" to her friend. Peyton lied to Brooke, saying that she was fine with her relationship with Lucas. At the open mic night at Karen's Cafe, Peyton struggled to be around Lucas and Brooke when they were together and Brooke confronted her about it, and Peyton finally told her that she wasn't okay with her new relationship. However, Peyton was unable to tell Brooke how she felt and instead lied to her saying that the only problem was that she missed Brooke. ("You Gotta Go There to Come Back")

Brooke meets the girl playing her in Lucas' movie, Missy, and Missy basically stalks Brooke trying to imitate her every move, even going so far as doing Brooke's "signature move" of stripping down in Brooke's backseat. Brooke and Julian are really happy together until she finds out Missy is always implying Brooke is a slut because she was told that Brooke's major role in high school was sex. Brooke confronts Julian and tells him "High School Brooke graduated", then temporarily breaks up with him. He then shows her a re-created manuscript in which it now reads a long list of Brooke's character traits that she has now, and this appears to mend their relationship. Brooke storms out of her room and into the bathroom yelling at Julian for "something inappropriate that he did". It turns out he told her that he loves her, and she struggles with telling him she loves him back. Brooke repeatedly tells him that she cares very deeply for him, but she's not in love with him yet because it's too soon. Julian decides to call it a "deleted scene" so they can start fresh. Brooke goes to the police station and bails out Sam after she is caught shoplifting, and yells at her, calling her "unfixable". Sam thinks this is because of a fight she is having with Julian since Brooke is ignoring all his phone calls. During another argument between the two, Julian calls and Sam grabs Brooke's phone and answers it, then gives it to Brooke, and Julian tells her the movie has been shut down and he is returning to Los Angeles. He comes and says goodbye to her, and yet again tells her he loves her before leaving. She apologizes to Sam after Julian tells her the shoplifting was only to protect Jack, and to make it up to her, Brooke finds Jack and allows him to spend the night. Thinking that Julian left for L.A. the night before, she is confused when he comes to see her in her store. She soon finds out he is leaving that night, but it's not goodbye because he has two tickets for her and Sam to come with him. She spends the episode wrestling with her decision since she has many factors to consider such as moving Sam around, her store, being Peyton's maid of honor, knowing him for only one month, etc. In the end she does go to the airport, but to tell him she's not coming. They share one final kiss and Julian then boards a plane back home. Victoria returns to Tree Hill and attempts to lure Brooke back to Clothes Over Bros after the company goes under. Victoria guilts her into it by telling her if she doesn't return, hundreds of employees will be out of work, and this hits a soft spot in Brooke and she returns to the company with a 51/49% split between her and Victoria, and Brooke says that Victoria still doesn't have a daughter. She also goes to the hospital after Peyton's accident and Lucas tells her about Peyton's condition, and she passes the news on to Haley. Sam also yells at her for locking her heart and letting Julian go. She finds it hard to have Victoria around again, especially since she is getting very close to Sam, which makes Brooke jealous because she believes Victoria is trying to be to Sam what she never was to Brooke. She reaches her breaking point when she finds out Victoria has been hiding and shredding letters addressed to Sam from her birth mother. She shows Sam the letters, and gives her blessing for Sam to get to know her real mother, although, in actuality, it hurts Brooke to see this. A month after Sam meets her mother, she continues to speak with her and she gets to know her well. Seeing she may be losing Sam, Brooke draws up adoption papers. Victoria forces Brooke to ambush Sam with them, but Sam instead says she wants to go live with her birth mother. She leaves Brooke, and Brooke is broken-hearted. On the day of Lucas and Peyton's wedding, Brooke puts the finishing touches on Peyton's wedding dress and they have an emotional conversation about how Peyton wants Brooke to be there for Lucas and the baby in case she doesn't make it through the dangerous delivery. Lucas surprises her by telling her that he has invited Julian to the wedding to be her date, but Julian reveals he already has a date - Missy, the girl that was to play Brooke in Lucas' shut-down movie. In retaliation, Brooke gets Nick Lachey to be her date. Throughout the night Brooke and Julian use their respective partners to make each other jealous, but at the end of the night, Brooke and Julian are left alone and Brooke tells him she misses him and can't deal with seeing him again, and she leaves. He goes to the store to find her but runs into Victoria, and he tells her off about the way she belittles Brooke and then says that he loves her and isn't giving up. Brooke returns to the store after Lucas and Peyton's wedding reception and asks Victoria if there were any messages, and she replies "no" without telling her what Julian said. She shows up at the hospital when Peyton has her emergency surgery. Four days later, Peyton is in a coma and Brooke has not left the hospital, and she is the second one to find out when Peyton wakes up (after Lucas). She says goodbye to Julian, who has been staying with her for moral support after Peyton goes into a coma. The next day she visits Peyton and baby Sawyer, and Peyton tells Brooke that she and Lucas have made Sawyer's middle name Brooke in honor of her best friend. Victoria later tells her to go to L.A. and tell Julian she loves him because Victoria once let a boy go and has never forgiven herself, and she also tries to give Brooke full control of the company after realizing she loved the company more than Brooke and she shouldn't have because Brooke is her daughter and she loves her. After an emotional bonding between the two, Brooke asks Victoria to stay on as her partner, and takes her advice by going to see Julian on his movie set in L.A. and finally telling him she loves him, and the two kiss, officially putting their future together back on track.
Brooke and Julian continue their relationship but it becomes a long-distance relationship while Julian travels around the world filming movies. Brooke also continues to design for her company Clothes Over Bros and creates a new line. And she trains Millie to run the company while she's in Tree Hill (being her second in command). Also she decides to find an actress to be the face of her new line.
Brooke and Julian have been happily together in the 14 months between Seasons 6 and 7, although they have spent much of the time apart. Brooke and Julian are having a romantic date at the beach when he tells her that he is leaving to produce a movie in New Zealand and will be gone for eight months, and she encourages him to do it even though she is clearly heartbroken. A few moments earlier, she wrote "Marry Me" in the sand but she never told Julian once she knew about his new movie. She attends Jamie's 7th birthday party and once again writes him a check for a large sum of money. After the party, Julian and Brooke go to the beach where he tells her that he turned the movie down to be with her, and he officially moves in. Brooke hires Alex Dupre as a model for COB after seeing her acting skills and beauty in a movie. But when Millicent picks her up and brings her to the store, she is not what Brooke expected and they begin coming up with ways to get rid of her. Alex overhears them, and when she comes out of the dressing room wearing Brooke's dress, she plays Brooke into changing her mind, unaware that the speech Alex gave to win Brooke over was actually a line from the movie Brooke watched Alex in. Alex begins taking an immediate interest in Julian. Julian begins working on a movie with Alex, until Victoria notices her crush on him and informs Brooke. After Alex tells Brooke she stripped naked for Julian Brooke fires her and tells Julian to sleep on couch. On a girls night with Haley, she assures Brooke that Julian loves her and he's not going anywhere. Brooke has a pregnancy scare and wants to tell Julian but he left to see Alex as he fears she will begin using drugs again, and she doesn't get the chance to. Rachel returns to Tree Hill for a vacation and tries to apologize to Brooke for stealing money from her by giving her a check with interest, but
Brooke slaps her and tells her to stay away. When she gets home to find that Julian is still with Alex, she cries in front of her bathroom mirror and says to herself "why can't you be the one who gets the baby and the boy" before throwing her birth control pills in the garbage. However, it is revealed that the doctor not only told Brooke she isn't pregnant, but that she can never get pregnant. She tells this to Julian who feels guilty he wasn't there.. She also battles with Millicent after she demands to be paid $500,000 for being the face of Clothes Over Bro's (which she has become after Alex got fired), which hurts Brooke after all she's done for Millie and how ungrateful she's being despite of that. She tells Victoria about her problems with Millicent and how those problems are because of Alex's influence, and Victoria says she will "take care of Alex". Brooke is furious when Julian confides Alex that she can't have kids and that he wants kids. After talking with Victoria about the situation, Victoria helps her realize that Julian might not be the one for her, and she asks Julian to take another movie because she wants time to be alone with herself before she can trust him again. Julian calls her after he finds Alex in her bathtub after slitting her wrists, and she goes to the hospital to support her now estranged boyfriend. After finding out about Millicent's actions Brooke fires her and tells her to get help.Brooke and Julian spend 6 weeks apart when Brooke goes on a business trip with Alexander to start her men's line, which she has officially named Clothes 4 Bros. She returns from her trip and runs into Julian at the airport, only to see that he's waiting for Alex. Julian comes to see her and they yet again fight about Alex, and when they fight again at Haley's concert. Julian tells Brooke he can't do it anymore and breaks up with her, leaving her heartbroken since she's still in love with him. She agrees to be the fashion designer for Julian and Alex's film. On the movie set, which is built to look like Lucas' house, she watches a set crew member paint Lucas' bedroom door brown, making her think of "the girl behind the red door" Brooke begins thinking about her relationship with Julian, and decides she wants to try and make things better, so she sweet-talks the hotel concierge into giving her Julian's room key, but when she enters the room, she finds Alex naked in Julian's bed, and hears a man in the shower, but when she sees Julian's sweater hanging from the bedpost. Believing Julian and Alex slept together, she punches Alex in the face on set the next day and gets banned from the set by Julian only to find out she actually slept with Alexander.. Once she realizes what a huge mistake she made, she apologizes to Julian and tells him the reason she's been acting so crazy is that she's still in love with him and misses him, and the two kiss and make up. They attend the funeral of Haley's mom together, Julian moves back in later that night, and they have a romantic evening alone. She attends Quinn's gallery opening and Julian tells her about Alex and Josh's sex tape, and Brooke tells Julian he should help Alex through it, which surprises him considering her jealous history with Alex. Julian shows Brooke his finished movie, and despite him thinking it's bad, Brooke tells him she loved it, and encourages him to enter it in a film festival he's been too nervous to do. Victoria tells Brooke her she is returning to New York City and Alexander is coming with her to run Brooke's mens line, Clothes 4 Bros. As Victoria is about to leave, the two share a very emotional goodbye and Victoria tells Brooke how much she loves and how proud of her she is. Brooke and the rest of the gang go on a trip to Utah for the premiere of Julian's movie. After the premiere Julian proposes to Brooke on a walk through the snow.
"We're pregnant!" Brooke to Julian ("The Man Who Sailed Around His Soul")The season starts with Brooke and Julian engaged and happier than ever. The two talk about the future and how Brooke can't have kids, so Julian proposes they spend all day in bed trying anyway. Haley comes over to tell Brooke about her pregnancy but catches Brooke and Julian in a compromising position (as the two are barely dressed about to have sex). Shortly after Haley leaves, the police come to the door and arrest Brooke, and she is charged with a number of money-related crimes regarding Clothes Over Bros. Knowing she had nothing to do with this, a furious Brooke is released from jail and has Julian bring her to her store to meet with Victoria and Millicent, whom Julian had fly to Tree Hill from New York to deal with this, and the two of them eventually reveal that they lied about how much money the company makes to their investors to better support the launch of Clothes 4 Bros. Brooke watches as the company immediately goes under and her store gets shut down, its inventory then completely cleaned out. After a conversation with Millie asking her how she could have allowed and helped Victoria to do this, she seeks comfort in Julian and tells him everything's gone, but he reminds her she still has him, and always will. After meeting with the company lawyer to hear what they are being charged with and the consequences, she finds out about Quinn and Clay's shooting from Haley and goes to the hospital for support while Julian goes to pick up Jamie from the park. She offers moral support for Nathan and Haley, and she tells them about her legal troubles. She later asks Victoria if she was ever proud of her, saying that if she was, she never would have lied to make the company sound better than it actually is, and Victoria tells her she lied because she believes in Brooke and knew she could make miracles happen no matter what would happen, and Brooke tells Julian it's her fault that this happened because she empowered them to do this in her absence. Brooke meets with Victoria and she tells Brooke that her and the lawyers have come up with a way for Brooke to keep the company, but won't tell Brooke specifically what that entails. Brooke and Julian take Jamie for the day while Nathan and Haley are at the hospital with Clay and Quinn and they play baseball at the park with him, and he sleeps over as well, telling them they will make great parents someday. Brooke gets a visit from Millicent and she is told that Victoria's plan to have Brooke keep the company is Victoria going to prison to take the blame, and after Brooke tries to stop her and tells her she doesn't want her to go, Victoria says she has to do it because it's her fault. Brooke drops her off at the prison and watches as her mother goes in, sad that things had to end this way. Brooke visits her mom in prison and is surprised that Victoria's doing her job from behind bars, but after one of her investors comes to her store and tells her that thanks to their lies he lost all the money for his daughter's college education, she decides to sell her company to pay back all of her investors, but when she's told this would only return 70% of their lost money, she tells the attorney to liquidate all of her personal fortune as well, giving away everything she's got to help make things right. After Victoria finds out Brooke has sold the company that Victoria worked so hard to build and even went to prison to protect, she's furious with her daughter and calls her stupid, telling her she never wants to speak to her again and for her to not come visit her at the prison anymore. After Julian and Haley help her realize it's Victoria's own fault she's behind bars and and she's the reason Brooke was forced to sell, she goes back to the prison and tells Victoria off, saying everything she's ever done was only done to make her proud, and regardless of whether or not Victoria's okay with Brooke selling the company, she tells her mother she will never have the opportunity to talk to Brooke as meanly and rudely as she did the day before, and says she won't be back to visit. She holds a press conference later that night, and promises her investors they will have all of their money back, then tells the press she looks forward to what comes next in her life. The morning of Halloween, a woman knocks on Brooke's door saying "trick or treat", and after Brooke insults her for being too old to be a trick or treater, she is shocked to find the woman is actually Julian's mom, Sylvia Baker, who's come a few weeks before the wedding, telling them that she will pay for their entire wedding to give them the wedding they've always dreamed about. However, Brooke soon comes to find out that Sylvia is very opinionated and does not like Brooke's tastes, wants, and desires for her wedding, arguing with Brooke on almost every topic, from the bridesmaids dresses to the food to the photographer, and even Brooke's desire to design her own wedding dress. Once her company has officially been sold and she's no longer affiliated with Clothes Over Bros, she takes out her frustrations on Sylvia by saying she doesn't want her money or her input for the wedding and wants to do it her way with her budget, causing a rift between the two, though they later patch this up after Julian tells Brooke that Sylvia's only been acting how she's been acting because she's threatened by Brooke, since Sylvia was always the closest person in Julian's life before Brooke came along. After ruining most of the dishes she tries to cook for Thanksgiving dinner, she attends a large gathering at Nathan and Haley's for the holiday, where she's reunited with a fresh-out-of-prison Victoria, which Brooke is not pleased about at all, nor is she pleased that Victoria and Sylvia seem to be getting along great and bonding throughout the dinner. She later comes to find out that Sylvia was the one who found out about Victoria's release and invited her to dinner hoping that her and Brooke could fix things, but only did so to make Brooke happy, so Brooke tells her future mother-in-law that Julian is the man that he is because of Sylvia's influence and that's all the happiness she needs. After having a bad daydream of her wedding going horribly wrong due to how poor she's become and how bad it will be as a result, she realizes she has no inspiration whatsoever to continue re-planning her wedding now that she can no longer have the wedding of her dreams. While going through some old boxes looking for something to inspire her, she and Julian find the list of things Brooke always wanted to try but never did, which Millie created for her back in Season 6 and includes things such as skydiving, watching every James Bond movie, getting drunk at Octoberfest, learning to speak French, and more, so Julian helps her do almost everything on the list, and afterwards, he promises her that no matter what happens he will make sure that she will get to experience the final item left on her list, which is having a baby. A huge storm hits tree hill. Brooke and Julian get into a fight, which ends with Brooke going out for a drive. As Julian is calling her and telling her to come home, Brooke almost hits Jamie's friend Chuck. He was in a car accident along with Jamie's teacher, Ms. Lauren, and his two friends, Madison and Chuck. Brooke helps to save the four, but Jamie's seat belt is stuck. After letting Lauren take Chuck and Madison to the hospital, she tries to cut Jamie's seat belt loose with nail scissors. Julian drives up, since he was on the phone with her when she arrived at the scene. A car approaches, and Julian tries to get it to stop, but instead the car crashes into the one Brooke and Jamie are in, causing it to fall into the water, since they are on a bridge (the same one as the car crash after Nathan and Haley renew their vows). As the car drives away, Julian dives in after them, and saves Jamie. Brooke's leg gets caught and Julian tries to get it free as Brooke begins to drown. Julian eventually gets Brooke's leg free, and brings her to the top of the bridge and performs CPR. After a few minutes, Julian gives up, when Haley and Nathan arrive at the scene, thinking she's dead. She then moves, so he starts CPR again, Brooke coughs up water and hugs Julian. She is later taken to the hospital. After a bachelorette party thrown by Haley in which Brooke, Millie, Quinn, Alex, and Sylvia get extremely drunk and wake up not remembering the night before, the girls run around town with clues they find piecing together the events that took place. Brooke loses her engagement ring, and is also shocked to hear from a waitress that she kissed someone during their drunken outing, only to later find out that the guy she kissed was Julian, who came to the bar they were at to see her, and he also took her engagement ring so that she wouldn't lose it while drunk. After finding out that Sawyer is sick and Peyton will not be attending her wedding, she asks Haley to be her maid of honor. Brooke and Julian's wedding occurs in the following episode, with Victoria walking Brooke down the aisle after her father does not show up to the wedding, and Brooke and Julian are married.
In the episode "Valentine's Day Is Over", Julian expresses to Brooke he would like to adopt a child, which Brooke quickly agrees to. They soon meet a young pregnant girl, Chloe Hall, who is looking for people to parent her unborn baby. Julian and Brooke lie to Chloe, making them seem they have the perfect life, so Chloe wouldn't doubt them. Brooke then throws Haley a baby shower, which Chloe shows up to. The guests of the baby shower tell her things that were not mentioned in the meeting, like Brooke losing her company and how everyone went to jail. Brooke then confesses everything, and Chloe decides she wants Brooke to be the mother of her baby.
Chloe soon goes into labor, the same day as Haley goes in labor with her baby. Julian and Brooke, ecstatic for the arrival of their baby, arrive at the hospital, not telling anyone of their joy. When Chloe gives birth, she holds her daughter, and decides to keep her child. Brooke and Julian are left devastated. Later she visits Haley, and her newborn daughter, Lydia Bob Scott. Brooke takes Lydia in his arms, and begins to cry.
In the episode "Where Not To Look For Freedom", Brooke is offered to be the vice president of Clothes Over Bro's, which also means she has to leave Tree Hill and return to New York. Victoria, of course, says it's a great opportunity. Julian also agrees it will be better for the both of them.
Brooke tells Julian she doesn't want the job in New York. Julian questions her and she answers that she would look out her office window, she would see children on a rooftop playground, and she didn't want her child to be raised there. Brooke then tells the confused Julian about the whole Chase drug test dilemma, getting to the part where she gave a urine sample, which was tested positive for pregnancy.
During her pregnancy, she went to Puerto Rico with Quinn, Alex and Lauren for Quinn's B. Davis magazine photo shoot.Having not yet revealed her pregnancy to her friends, Alex helps Brooke conceal her pregnancy and caring for the child to be born into a diversion for Brooke by helping her throw her sushi and alcoholic drinks over her shoulder so none of the girls notice she isn't drinking nor eating the Sushi. Despite the help of Alex, Quinn discovers that Brooke is pregnant, and just gives her a bottle of water when Brooke eats voraciously, a Hamburger and fries. Brooke confesses her pregnancy, Quinn was ecstatic, but Brooke asks her not to say anything, Quinn accepts and rejoices with her. When she returns to Tree Hill, she finds out that Haley has decided to turn Brooke's former store back into Karen's Cafe now that she's moving to New York, causing Brooke to finally tell Haley that she turned down the job and is staying in Tree Hill because she's pregnant, and instead offers to be Haley's partner so they can open the cafe together.
Brooke is now 3 months pregnant and is very happy to grow a belly; she even asks Julian to tell her she is fat and she and Julian begin to take measurment of her stomach as the baby grows bigger by drawing the belly shape on a white sheet in the nursery.
Brooke and Haley then reopen the Karen's café, which is filmed on show "Mouth and Millie." When 6 months pregnant, Brooke and Julian do an ultrasound and the doctor tells them he is getting two heart beats through the monitor as well as Brooke's, making three, before telling them she is pregnant with twins. Once back home Julian begins to put the cribs together for the babies, but Brooke interrupts, fearing it is too early.Julian then reassures his wife, telling her that everything will go well and that it is their miracle, and has become two miracles. Julian then measure's the size of the belly of Brooke, and draws on the sheet. At 7 months pregnant, Brooke drops a stool at the Karen's cafe and was taken to hospital where doctors had given birth prematurely are the twins are boys whom they name Davis and Jude Baker. Julian arrived shortly after and after seeing his wife, he went to see his son's whom have been put in incubators.

Her father proves to be a very fast working businessman, already having lined up three possible investors. The next day Brooke goes out to breakfast with him while Victoria guarded Davis and Jude. But her father was in late and she waits for him for almost an hour. When Ted arrived he told her that he found investors. Brooke, happy, returns in her home and quarrels against Victoria again about Ted.Later Brooke met her possible investors during a lunch after a golf party, while Victoria again guards the boys. But she is disappointed because she thought she would spend time alone with Ted. However the reunion is good and an investor accepts to invest in Baker Man.

Then Brooke asks to Julian to drive Davis around because in the nursery Jude is ill. Julian keeps Davis but he forgets him in the car. And Davis suffers from dehydration and is taken to the hospital. Later Brooke learns the news and goes in the hospital. Worried about her son, Brooke holds Julian responsible for the situation and when Davis was able to leave the hospital Brooke brings him back home alone. The next day she goes to work early morning to the Cafe with the twins without telling Julian. She speaks of the incident to Haley and she tries to make her forgive Julian.

- Family: Brooke Davis Baker/Family
- Relationships: Brooke Davis Baker/Relationships
- Friendships: Brooke Davis Baker/Friendships
Brooke had a very strained relationship with her parents due to the fact neither parents wanted a child and tried to buy her love with money. During her teen years when they moved to LA Brooke refused to come with them and instead only came during one summer. This meant she barely had a relationship with her father or her mother. But once Brooke started CoB her mother became CEO and Brooke hoped they could form a good relationship but instead her mother ignore her and pressured her until Brooke fired her and Julian (Brooke's boyfriend) told Victoria what an awful mother she'd been and they finally recoiled and the two formed a very strong relationship. She later married Julian and together they had twin boys Davis and Jude even though Brooke was told she was sterile. The boys are like a miracle for Brooke and she passed very much times with them and they are her priority.
Brook does not have any siblings, due to her mother not wanting anymore children. However, Brooke is extremely close to Peyton Sawyer from her childhood. Brooke is even the godmother of Peyton’s daughter: Sawyer Brooke Scott (who is named after Brooke). Brooke is also the godmother of James Lucas Scott, the son of Nathan Scott and Haley James Scott, her former roommate and other best friend. She loves Jamie, and is like a second mother to him. She has a good relationship with Jamie’s sister, she is considered an aunt to Lydia Scott.
Brooke had a reputation of being the bad girl. She was the most popular girl in high school and had sex with the hottest guys in Tree Hill. Brooke and Nathan had a one-night stand while Nathan was in a relationship with Peyton. The pair made a sex tape, which was played at a party during their senior year at Tree Hill High. When Lucas became part of the Ravens, he immediately caught Brooke's eye and she started flirting with him, despite Lucas telling her that she didn't have to act that way around him. However, after Peyton was drugged and Brooke called Lucas, the two spent the night together caring for her and Lucas got to know Brooke, seeing a new side of her. She also had relationships with: Felix Tagarro, Chris Keller, Nick Chavez, Nick Lachey, Chase Adams and Owen Morello. Brooke later begins a relationship with Julian Baker, but was initially reluctant to confess her feelings for him after what she went through with Lucas. They broke up until Brooke travels to his movie set to tell him she loves him in the season 6 finale.
In the 7th season after Brooke hires Alex to model for Clothes Over Bros, Alex sets her sights on Julian and for a short period Julian and Brooke split but in the finale they get engaged. Despite that possibly Brooke can't have children, they are looking for one because it is their biggest desire. After months of trying for children Brooke discovers she's pregnant and after falling while only 7 months pregnant she gives birth to two fraternal boys, Jude and Davis Baker on November 17th 2012.
For Brooke, her friends are very important. Because of her parents absence in her life her friends became her 'true family'. She has a very close friendship with Peyton Sawyer Scott, since they were 8 years old, after the death of Peyton's adoptive mother. Their friendship became stronger along the series despite Brooke and Peyton's fight because of the Scott brothers. They are very protective of each other, Brooke risked her life for Peyton when she was attacked by Ian and Peyton protected Brooke from Victoria. The two are so close that Peyton asked Brooke to take care of her unborn baby if she were to die and say to her daughter that she was very lucky to have Brooke as best friend. After Peyton's departure with her family, they stayed very close and would talk on the phone. Brooke is also a long time friend of Nathan Scott. The beginning of the friendship was in early high school and it was presumed because of their similar social background that they knew each other from a long time. Both also haves lots in common with very demanding parents and Nathan often consoled Brooke. Brooke also developed a strong relationship with her former roommate, Haley James Scott. According to Haley, they became friends when Haley and Peyton drove Brooke at night, after a Ravens' game. Although they are very different, both girls became very close friends and then best friends. After her first child's birth Haley asked Brooke to be her son's godmother and Brooke did the same with her own sons. Brooke and Haley worked together and re-opened the Karen's Café. She is also friends with Mouth McFadden, they met in season 1 when she was dating Lucas Scott and they became fast friends. She also introduce him to his future wife Millicent Huxtable. Brooke was friends with Millicent Huxtable when Brooke started being successful on Clothes over bros. She was her only friend in New York City besides Rachel Gatina.
From a young age, Brooke has always been interested in making money and a successful business. This begun when she was in the 2nd grade when she went after Martha Stewart's fortunes and made a cookie business called 'Brookies.' The only problem was, she could not cook at all and burnt most cookies to the point where she set off a fire alarm.
Clothes Over Bro'sThe initial Clothes Over Bro's line features styles from casual to dressy. It was an immediate hit with her customers, selling past their expectations on the website (which, in actuality, is also a valid retailer for One Tree Hill fans interested in purchasing the designs). The clothing line's success grew, putting Brooke in the difficult position of choosing between showcasing her designs at a New York fashion show and starting her career, or leading her Tree Hill cheerleaders to their final competition. In the end, Brooke chose the latter, once she realized that she was not yet ready to enter the fast-paced world of fashion and was more than happy to finish off her senior year with her friends. During an interview with the school's counselor, Brooke voices her intentions of studying Fashion Design after high school. Clothes Over Bro's continues to be recognized in Season 4, with Brooke's designs appearing in local fashion shows. When Brooke is involved in a cheating scandal, she's forced to keep from turning herself in to administration in order to maintain an offer to sell her clothing line by Victoria's Secret. She eventually does turn herself in to the principal, but does not get into trouble. In Season 5, Clothes Over Bro's has become a full-blown fashion company headed by Brooke Davis herself, but with the business side carried out by her mother, Victoria. The Clothes Over Bro's dynasty consists of B. Davis magazine and a high-end couture line. The Clothes Over Bro's logo (C|B) is incorporated on Peyton's drawing of a heart on fire. The label's name itself is based on the saying between Brooke and Peyton, "Hoes Over Bros", and was first tagged in a conversation between Haley and Brooke. Brooke admits in 'I Forgot To Remember To Forget' she started her company 'Clothes Over Bro's' to deal with her broken heart after her break up with Lucas. In Season 6, Brooke signs her company over to her mother, Victoria, after thinking Victoria had her attacked and robbed (it was later revealed to be Jack's brother). Her store remains empty for the majority of the season. In "I Would For You", Victoria returns telling Brooke the company is going under and if she doesn't return, hundreds will lose their jobs, and she reluctantly returns to the company. Victoria later signs the company back over to Brooke realizing her daughter is more important. She hires an actress, Alex Dupre, to be the new face of Clothes Over Bro's, and after Millicent stands in for a model during a fashion show Brooke puts together at TRIC, she asks her to be a model as well. Currently Victoria becomes President of the company with Millicent as Vice President.
Clothes 4 Bros
Also, she comes up with the idea to begin making clothes for men, which Brooke is thinking of calling "Clothes FOR Bros". She later hires Millicent to be the other face of the company after she wows the crowd during a fashion show at TRIC. She eventually fires both of them after Alex constantly flirts with Julian and causes strain to their relationship, and Millicent begins taking diet pills and doing cocaine, and also for stealing a dress from the store. Millicent is later hired back by Victoria after getting on a DUI charge because Victoria called the police. Brooke begins working with a man Victoria hired named Alexander to develop a brand new men's line, "Clothes 4 Bros". Alexander is president of Clothes 4 Bros but reports to Victoria.
Countless times in the first couple of seasons, she has been sent to jail for crimes, such as shoplifting. At the beginning of Season 8, Brooke is arrested and charged with various monetary crimes which she had nothing to do with. She later finds out that Victoria and Millicent lied to COB investors, reporting a higher company revenue in order to increase their chances of having the men's line picked up and funded. As a result of these crimes, the company goes under, Brooke's store is shut down, and there is the possibility of jail time for whomever is responsible. Victoria and Millicent work closely with the company lawyers to ensure Brooke keeps the company, and eventually an agreement is proposed which would allow Brooke to keep the company in exchange for a fine and Victoria serving prison time. Victoria agrees despite Brooke asking her not to.
After losing Clothes over Bros, Brooke remained unemployed for a time until she was re-offered a job at COB as the vice-president, which she was about to accepted until she discovered she was pregnant and as she didn't want her children to be raised in New York. Instead she and best friend Haley decided to re-opened Karen's Cafe together so their children could live in the same environment Haley grew up with. Brooke deals with the business of the Café while Haley deals with the cook and the service. However, when Nathan was kidnapped, Brooke assumes the totality of the Café. She devastated also the Tree Hill Café when this café’s owner – Tara – sent a letter in Julian, reminding him Davis’ accident. She organized a concert in the Café to fight against the Tree Hill Café.
After her sons' birth, Brooke created a new line, a line of clothes for baby boys (unlike Baby Brooke was for Baby Girls), inspired by her own children and named after them. Initially asking her mother to partner up, Victoria turned her down, leaving Brooke to make the same offer to her dad, who accepted it, and had three possible investors already lined up in a short period of time. Brooke met her possible investors during a lunch, after a golf party. Eventually Brooke started the company on the internet and her family bought the Tree Hill Café to make it into a store.
