If you really want a family, something that's like forever, forever scares a lot of us.
―Chase Adams[src]

Chase Adams was a member of Clean Teens who came to Tree Hill High during his senior year. He formed a relationship with Brooke Davis throughout the year but they eventually broke up for reasons unknown after Graduation - most likely due to her newfound fame as the Clothes over Bro's creator. He returned to Tree Hill some time later and was currently the owner at Tric, after Karen Roe upon Haley's request sold it to Chase right before the series finale. During Season 6 and Season 7 he dated Mia Catalano, who broke up with him over a text message at the end of Season 7. He then had a troubled relationship with performer, Alex Dupré conflicting with this time with Mia but once he joined the air force and a year after he got out they reconciled. However, they broke up when she left Tree Hill after accepting an offer to go on tour from Chris Keller.


Chase had one serious relationship. He realized his girlfriend had been cheating on him with his best friend for a long while, leaving him with a wariness of relationships and a need for honesty. He joined Clean Teens in an attempt to start over. Chase shares with Brooke that was younger he learned to dance by watching his parents dancing ballroom routines when he was supposed to be in bed, implying his parents had a loving marriage. Chase had an avid interest in skateboarding.

Character arc

Season 4

Season 4 Chase

Chase in school with Brooke Davis. ("Pictures of You")

Chase was a new student who joined the Clean Teens and became to Brooke, after she and Rachel joined. Brooke, having achieved a high grade on a calculus test (by cheating), agrees to tutor Chase, who initially has no idea of how Brooke really achieved this grade. They go on a date and begin seeing each other. When he finds out that Brooke cheated on the test he forgives her after a short break and they begin a relationship. Later on, Brooke and Chase attend a party at Nathan's mom's house. It is revealed that Nathan and Brooke filmed a sex tape. He then visits Brooke while she is setting up for prom, and tells her that his ex-girlfriend cheated on him with his best friend.

Brooke and Chase enjoy the graduation party. ("All of a Sudden I Miss Everyone")

Unable to forgive Brooke's past, he tells her that it's over, but he knows how important prom is to her so they will still go together and then break up. However Brooke tells him it's over now as she doesn't want to go to prom with someone who doesn't want to be with her. After while, Chase later bumps into Brooke at school. Knowing about her and Peyton's attack by Ian Banks, he seems interested in reconciling. He no longer wears his Clean Teens T-shirt. It is thus seen that he still has feelings for Brooke, as she does for him. The pair give each other their yearbooks to sign, and Brooke writes a heartfelt paragraph about her true feelings for him. Chase writes an informal message, leaving Brooke humiliated, but later told her that he felt the same way, he was just afraid to admit it. Chase and Brooke are back together again. In the finale, Brooke and Chase take it to the next level and have sex in the backseat of his car, Chase's first time. Chase later goes on to say "it was the best 60 seconds" of his life. We end Season 4 by seeing that Chase and Brooke are very much in love and we are led on to believe they will continue their relationship over the next 4 years.

Missing years

Chase became a carpet sales man and he and Brooke split. The exact cause is unknown, but it seems safe to imply that Brooke's move to New York and growing career was a primary reason.
