The thing that gets me when people say “Lucas didn’t know/understand Brooke blah blah blah ” is that when I think of Brooke Davis and everything her character was, I think of three quotes:
“She makes me laugh. She’s honest, she’s not afraid to be herself.”
“She was fiercely independent, Brooke Davis. Brilliant and beautiful and brave, in two years she’d grown more than anyone I had ever known, Brooke Davis is going to change the world someday. And I’m not sure that she even knows it.”
"There are two completely different sides to Brooke Davis. Both of which are amazing.”
How can you love that character (or like her or even just watched the show), read those quotes, and think the person who said them didn’t know her?
