Owen's first appearance in Tree Hill was at TRIC, the bar he managed. For a short time Owen rejected Brooke Davis' advances until he flew to New York with her in which they found Rachel Gatina who Owen knew from his junkie days, who had overdosed and they brought her back and tried to help her stay sober but were unable. Owen and Brooke shared a short fling until Brooke said she wanted to adopt a child and Owen then ran away.
Owen was first seen on the team that Nathan Scott played for and helped him throughout his career in Slamball. Owen tried to get Brooke back, which later failed. But Sam, Brooke's foster daughter tried to help Owen and they bonded. And finally after trying endlessly to win Brooke back over, Owen turned back to alcohol, which resulted in him and Millicent Huxtable having a one night stand, taking her virginity. Owen Later left Tree Hill to recover from his relapse and leaves Chase in charge of the Bar.
