Lucas met up with Dan and personally asked him to leave, but before they left Julian Baker broke a bottle and attempted to attack Lucas with it. However, Officer Owen Morello broke up the fight before it got physical. That same night, when Lucas was about to go home, he found Peyton Sawyer with her car broken down and decide to try and fix it. He eventually decided to instead walk her home when he was unable fix her car. When he walked her home, Lucas asked Peyton why she was associated with Dan, and she revealed to him that her mother, Anna Sawyer, and Dan were once in love and once her mother tragically died, Dan took her in as her own. Once they reached Peyton's house, they kissed and then the two parted ways. The following night, Peyton returned to Karen's Cafe and gave Lucas a dove pendant and, though Lucas asked her to stay, she then left. Soon after, Peyton rushed back to the club to inform Lucas that Dan Scott and his group of thugs were going to kill the reporter Marvin McFadden and that, Dan had killed Keith Scott. Lucas then grabbed a case from underneath the bar table. He opened up the case and pulled out a loaded pistol. He told Peyton and Antwon to stay inside the club, but Peyton followed him. Before he could reach his automobile, another automobile pulled up in front of Lucas and Peyton. Julian Baker exited the automobile and attempted to shoot Lucas but was instead shot dead by Lucas. Then from behind, came Dan Scott and Brooke Davis. Dan gave Brooke a revolver and told her to shoot Lucas but Brooke turned the gun on Dan only to realize the gun was empty. Dan then knocked Brooke down and then pulled out another gun. After a short conversation with Lucas, Dan attempted to shoot Lucas, but was tackled by an injured Antwon Taylor.
