Monday, December 1st:
Luke, you’re now experiencing stomach pains. Will the light bulb go off in your head now and will you finally quit drinking? As a fan of the soap genre, I realize that break-ups with couples are going to happen, but now it’s just gotten to the point where it’s obvious that they’re keeping them apart so he can drink.
While it’s obvious to the viewer what happened with Brian and Luke, but I can see why someone like Noah doesn’t understand right now what’s going on. And the mere thought of someone’s step-grandfather macking his step-grandson is hard to comprehend, to say the least. And now Brian’s moved in and they all are gonna be one happy family? Yeah, I don’t think so.
Oh, Holden, Lily, and Lucinda, and Noah, how little you know.
Wednesday, December 3rd:
Another day, another instance of being totally creeped out by Brian. Gotta love Brian’s face when Luke says to Alison that “she doesn’t know the half of it.” Just like he had something to hide, which he does. Brian, you are no hero. And the Brian/Luke kiss flashbacks are just creepy! Enough of those; it’s like when Holden and Carly kept reminiscing about their affair.
There’s something about this story that seriously irritates me. Don’t get me wrong, I really enjoy the amount of time Luke has been getting lately; Van’s been getting really meaty material and I’m happier than ever that Casey is back in the Luke and Noah story, along with Alison; those two need to associate with young people. But I could not have been more annoyed when Luke was experiencing near fainting spells and Noah was not even notified. Where is he in this story? I can understand that there are going to be a few instances where Noah’s not going to be on, but seriously, why is Noah seen so seldom in this lately? They don’t even bother to mention where Noah is staying during this break-up and we barely get to see his perspective on it (not to mention, his logic about Kevin no longer works since he is MIA; that’s minus one point, writers). I realize that Luke and Brian are going to be saying more to each other, but still in the end, it’s like Noah’s making the occasional guest shot and it shows another sign that he‘s really not developed enough on this show.
