Jake Silbermann, Luke's future love interest arrives on the show today. Luke (Van Hansis) will meet Noah (Jake Silbermann) at the Oakdale TV station, where both are working as interns. Noah first appears to be straight and is wildly enticed by Luke’s gal pal Maddie. When the boys do hook up in July, there will be fallout. Luke’s parents, Holden and Lily, have gradually come to terms with their kid being gay. "But now they’ll have to really deal withy it," Hansis notes. "Accepting is one thing. Seeing their son with a boyfriend is something else."
Some fans have expressed impatience with the delay, fearing the lack of lust meant ATWT was trying to whitewash Luke’s sexuality. "That was never the intention," Hansis insists. "Waiting has made this a more realistic story, and it’s still not a love-at-first-sight sorta thing." Below is a quick video catch-up on Luke's story so far. Thanx to Alan Light ;-)
