Lucas imagines a life married to Brooke

Lucas is in New York as a man asks him to play a game with cards. Lucas agrees as the man tells him that there are three queens and all he has to do is pick one and follow his heart. As he begins to play, Brooke comes up to him and gives him flowers for their one year anniversary. Lucas tells her that he is her husband and he should be given the flowers. They walk off and Lucas gives her the flowers. He asks if Brooke ever misses Tree Hill and Brooke admits she does, especially her friends, but they are so busy. Lucas comments on how much travelling they have to do apart, and Brooke tells him that it is worth it when they get back. He agrees and tells her he loves her, kisses her and wishes her a happy anniversary. They go through some doors and Lucas steps out the other side into the house. He wishes someone a happy anniversary and Peyton comes round the corner. They kiss as Peyton tells him that they are living the life she always wished for. Lucas then goes for a sit down, and as he does, Lindsey comes round the corner with some flowers. Lucas compliments her looks and Lindsey kisses him happily, amazed at his sweetness. As Lindsey goes to get dressed, Lucas asks if it is easy with them and Lindsey tells him it is the easiest. He gets up and follows Lindsey through the curtains. As he gets to the other side, the man playing the card asks him the same question. As he shuffles them, Lucas looks up and Haley stands over him telling him to pick one, Nathan then appears shuffling them and tells him to pick one. Jamie then tells him followed by Lindsey, Peyton and Brooke. Lucas eventually picks one and turns over the card to find it to be the queen of hearts. The man asks how he knew and Lucas says he always knew. Lucas then is distracted from his daydream as a man, who appears to be the same man who was playing with the cards, asking him what he was saying. Amazed, he touches the man to see if he is dreaming, and he is not, but embarrasses himself. He picks up the phone to rings someone and asks them to get married to him in Vegas.

He is then told he has made the right choice, and as Lucas asks why, the man tells him that the girl showed up. Lucas turns around and through the crowds of the airport, the girl he has proposed to arrives: Peyton. She tells him that he cannot call her like that in such a mess, but then tells him that he is her mess. She announces her love and they kiss happily, ready to go to Vegas.

The doorbell goes and Brooke hangs up calling her a bitch. She opens the door to find Victoria who storms in. She tells Brooke that she is her legal partner and it is therefore still half her company. As the two continue to argue, Victoria warns Brooke that designers come and go, but she grows the brand and it is the brand that matters. Brooke tells her that she is nothing without her designs and the board would not dare to fire her. Victoria tells her to wait and see as Brooke kicks her out.
