Nuke fans knew this day would come. On the May 28 episode Noah who can kind of see, now that Dr. Reid Oliver helped him regain his eye sight will catch Luke and Reid kissing! 

In an interview with TV Guide Magazine today, Jake Silbermann (Noah) explains Noahs next move: “Sure, the breakup was engineered by Noah, but a doctor hooking up with his patient’s significant other is crossing the line. It’s just too close to home and Noah is furious that this has been going on right under his nose. I think the guy is deserving of a punch, at the very least,”

And while the big knock out punch comes on June 9th, Silbermann, doesn’t know yet know if Luke and Noah will reunite before ATWT goes off the air in September. “They’re pretty broken up at this point, so if the writers are going to put them back together it’ll take some work. Plus, a lot of viewers want Luke and Reid to be together, so who knows which way it’ll go? I do think Luke and Noah have established themselves as a couple who can rebound from most anything. We’ll have to wait and see. ATWT has survived 54 years because of audience loyalty. I just hope it all ends in a way that’s respectful to the fans.”

I hope they don’t put Luke back with Noah, they had no chemistry together, at least not the sizzle that Luke & Reid do. Noah & Luke are like best friends with benefits. They should explore who Noah could be with, either that guy he had coffee with from his rehab place or someone who could come back on the show to pair him up with. Everyone should end up happy, but i don’t see how Luke could be happy with Noah, not the way the writers have always written Noah, always putting other people ahead of Luke.

I don’t think Luke and Noah should ever get back together. That relationship was over and done a long time ago in my opinion.

Well, a lot of former Nuke fans, like myself, don’t want Noah and Luke to get back together. Noah just doesn’t make Luke happy anymore. The endless rebounds are mostly because Luke keeps running after Noah and I really hope we will stop doing that and let himself be happy for once.

How can Luke ever trust Noah again, to not jump ship at the next bump in the road. Luke gives his all and with Noah it’s never enough, only on his terms and when it’s convenient to him.
Luke & Reid are so real together and I like the way Luke is with Reid so much better. He’s more mature and can make a fresh start. Reid challenges him in a really good way and they are such an awesome match. Luke & Reid endgame!

I have been a fan of lukes from day one However now I am a Reid fan Reid and Luke should ride off into the sunset Noah is great to but everyone is suppose to have a first love and there first love isn’t always there soulmate I think Noah was what Luke need when he was young still finding himself. But now Luke is finally starting to take up for him self Luke is finding out that sometimes people just love you for no reason then you are who you are evertime Luke was with Noah it seemed had to pretend to be what Noah wanted him to be Noah always made look feel second best However Reid loves Luke for who is flaws in all also Luke just always seems to smile and be happy around Reid relaxed with noah he’s up tight like he is waiting for the shoe to fall. As I said Noah was Lukes first love and you never forget your first love there is alway a special place for the But Reid is Luke’s Soul mate and I like many ATWT fans would like to have Reid and Luke together in the end thank you for your time

ATWT has did Jake wrong. I think that all the Reid lovers are over looking the fact that Jake is due some respect as an actor for giving viewers the best he could with what was given. I don’t care really if it’s LURE or NUKE but all the hate for jake is wrong.

Jake is a lovely guy.I just didn’t want his character of Noah to end up with Luke.He treated Luke like garbage and not only when he was blind. Jake as himself is very personable and nice.And it is a show but it’s a show I have watched forever! people should be courteous on these posts ….you don’t have to like the characters, but lets not trash the actors!

Hi,how are you?
I respect your opinion but you are mistaken.
The love story of Luke & Noah`s fascinating,even with all mistakes and successes.
Luke & Noah are victimas of the writers themselves who created this wonderful story,with leads us to love them for four years and will be with them until the and.
Luke & Noah(Van & Jake)are loved in many countries,i am one of those people who truly love,and we still love them because of obstacles and difficulties that writers face always make them.
True love will always belong and always belonged with NUKE,even though you and some fans Reid has no courage to admit the truth.
Van & Jake when they are acting together,are so perfect and beautiful that makes us love them more each day.
Search on youtube in the channels on ATWT Luke & Noah ,you and writers will see that we NUKE fans,and many are tottaly loyal and passionate about the boys for a long time.
We are disappointed and tired of these writers and the current history.
We want our NUKE back.
Do i realy hope the writrs have been loyal to those who followed them all these years and follows the love story of Luke & Noah.
See ithe channel LUKEVANFAN (Andy) hi is most responsible for the popularity of NUKE.
LUKEVANFAN WE LOVE YOU.
Reid(Eric Steffens) never did, never will this popularity,which LUKE & NOAH (Van & Jake ) has.
NUKE together and happy as we want.
NUKE FOREVER !!!!!!!!!!

noah is a little brat only thinks of himself;noah is the one put luke and reid together in the frist place;noah drove luke to drink in the frist place;noah treats luke like a doormat the only resson they were together is that noah gave luke hes legs back and luke gave hes eyes backluke doen’t love noah at all; noah deserve to be alone and leave luke and reid alone already and leave town already

1. Dude, Noah thinks of Luke all the goddamn time. He helped him get his legs working. He helped him when they investigated Reg’s murder, and kept him from getting himself killed. He stood by Luke when Damian returned. He put his life on the line to keep Luke from getting raped by “Zoe”. He was as supportive as he could when Holden died. And now he’s being an effin’ saint, watching the love of his life together with someone else, just because he hopes it will make Luke happy.

2. Noah became blind and needed a doctor, and he wished for Luke to get along with the man that could give him his eyes back. Dude; that’s not the same thing as trying to make a couple out of two people.

3. No. That’s just stupid. Noah didn’t even know Luke when he first started drinking; fear and insecurity and all that shit drove Luke to drinking.
The second time, Luke started drinking because he was embarassed and angry and still insecure. Yes, Noah went to the dean, but lets face it; the truth would’ve come out sooner or later. And if it against all odds didn’t, in the long run it would only have been bad for Luke. He’s the kind of guy with an overdeveloped sense of guilt, and he wouldn’t be able to just forget something like that.

4. Luke and Noah were together because they loved one another. What, you really think the only reason why Luke stayed with and claimed to love Noah, was because he felt guilty? Doesn’t that sound kinda stupid to you?

5. That’s just plain cynical, man.

So dude – don’t shit all over a guy just because he’s made some bad choices. Luke has, too. The thing is; he’s such a golden boy; no one cares about that at all.

is not all luke is all noah; there is something you have to now noah’s father shoot luke and noah did not take resbonalttey for hes father’s actchin’s i watch luke and noah for a long time i know what i am talkin about noah treat luke like crap over years noah keept pushing luke away noah did that for the last time;noah treated luke like a doormat all noah things about is himself and not luke that is not love at all if noah ever love luke at all noah should let luke go and let him to be happy and in love with reid; noah is the one push luke into reid’s arms in the frist place;noah blow it with luke and noah should blame himself and not luke noah should move on with hes life and get life.

(Is it just me, or are you simply repeating your “arguments” from the first posts? Because I think I’ve already answered to this reply.)

It wasn’t Noah’s fault his father shot Luke, and yet he took way more responsibility for the incident than he should have to. (And I’ve been watching their storyline for years too, so if you want to wow me with your awesome youtube watching skills, you really ought to try harder.)
I won’t even bother to answer the shit about “Noah treating Luke like crap” again. So if you would, please go up and read point 1 on my earlier reply. (And please, don’t skip it this time, as you clearly did before. And if you didn’t, you really need new arguments.)
You’re blind if you seriously think Luke is in love with Reid. He sees Reid as nothing more than a rebound. And Reid probably sees Luke as pretty much nothing but a nice piece of ass.
Noah didn’t push Luke into Reid’s arms. If you would, please read point 2 again. And maybe think it over this time.
And that shit about Noah “getting a life”? Seriously? How would you feel if the love of your life started sucking face with a guy you and practically everyone else knew was a douche? It’s also a really narcissistic thing to say, man. Besides, Noah’s life? Is Luke. How the hell is he supposed to move on?

(And, oh my God, I’m begging you; learn to write! Please! “resbonaltty”? Really?)

I’m so happy the way you dafend the LuRe story ! I remember you on facebook always trying to tell everyone Luke and Reid are meant to be together and that Noah should get lost ! I share your opinion ! I love Reid so much, I think he should be with Luke! He treats Luke better than Noah and everytime the meet they always got this smile on their faces,! Reid just got to go easy on People and be less rude, And I know Luke will help him to that ! They should both tell eachother how they feel ! They must say those 3words !
LUKE AND REID ALL THE WAY !

I honestly don’t get what’s supposed to be so epic about Reid and Luke. (With the way Luke’s character is being written at the moment, I don’t really see why anyone would want to start a relationship with him at the moment, but that’s beside the point.)
The thing is; Luke and Reid could never stay happy together. I’m sorry, but they wouldn’t. Luke’s the definition of all-or-nothing, and Reid would never be able to give him everything, as he is a really busy man. And I have no idea why Reid would want a relationship with Luke; practically giving up his career to be with an insecure college drop-out who’s still hung up on his ex.
So what does that leave us with. The sexual attraction, and Luke needing to get over Noah. So basically, it’s all physical. And we all know that’s the best way evah to build an epicromanceomg. (Not.)
I’ve always loved Luke, and Reid is hilarious, but they’re so immature! I don’t think they could have a healthy relationship at all. Sorry.

I truly believe that Luke and Noah end up together. Not only is that “the safe choice” for the writers, but Noah has done a lot of growing lately. (And yeah, he’s been kind of a bitch, but dude was fucking blind!)

(Although I really don’t know why I care so much. It’s ridiculous really; with all of us standing on our soap boxes and yelling at each other – over a soap.)

As a long time ATWT watcher and a lover of Luke ( and such a Van fan!) Luke and Noah outgrew each other.it was first love for them but first loves rarely last.Watching Luke fall in love with Reid and Reid with Luke was so nice to watch.They became better men because of and for each other.Watching them was a joy.I never saw a couple like them before and i doubt if we ever will again.their love story was wonderful.And nobody could have made us believe that they were in love like Eric and Van .These actors are two of the best anywhere!i love them both but Van is truly a sweetheart!

Some people must be kidding here. There was absolutely ZERO chemistry between Luke and Reid. Above all, the only reason they were together was a major distortion of characters and history. And I’m talking about the yearslong history of LUKE AND NOAH.

It was totally obvious that some of the writers/producers had only one agenda: to throw Noah (Jake) and with him Nuke under the bus because they wanted to give all the air time to their best buddy who was hyped like Superman. I mean: give someone the air time and those “funny” lines they wrote for Dr. Reid and slam his counterpart (Noah/Jake) who got ridiculously little air time and distort all the facts and the whole history, and there certainly will be some people who fall for that.

Whoever had watched the two and a half years of Luke and Noah before, though, didn’t believe for a second what the writers did to both of their characters and their wonderful relationship from the moment when there was a major change in the writers’ team (I won’t say more, you can all research it via Google). And so the ratings kept dropping and dropping, in sharp contrast to the rare times when Luke and Noah were given more air time and ratings almost always went up.

These terrible writers’ agenda was to throw the yearslong gay couple under the bus and give all the air time to Dr. Superman who was hyped like crazy, whereas Noah was painted as the worst guy on earth and totally marginalized. And everyone who watched Luke from the moment Van Hansis took over the role didn’t recognize him anymore after they turned him into Damian’s little boy.

This fact that ultimately led to Noah losing his sight while he was working hard to build building a future not only for him, but one who would have fit perfectly to the interests Luke had before the writers turned him into a completely different character, these and so many other important facts and developments, were NEVER ever dealt with in a sincere way by these terrible writers. They just wanted to make Noah look bad, have him off air and hype their Dr. Superman.

In the end, they and the people who seriously let themselves be blinded by that whole crap got everything they wanted: Nuke had been thrown under the bus and the finale of the cancelled show was totally free of gay love, romance, kissing and sex. Now, what a huge success!

If you ask me, however, millions of fans all over the world watching and falling in love with Nuke videos still in 2013, say it all. Luke and Noah forever!

ABC and PEOPLE’s ‘The Story of Soaps’: What Was Your Review Of It?

Tuesday’s night airing of ABC and PEOPLE’s two-hour special The Story of Soaps featured many notable daytime and primetime soap stars, past and present, clips from backstage to classic memorable moments, and some participants who were providing commentary on the erosion of the daytime soaps in our culture.  Still others, maintained and realized that everything today is serialized from the news we watch, to some of Netflix’s most binge-watchable series, and of course, the birth of reality-programming.

Throughout the airing of the special, The Story of Soaps was trending on Twitter and social media either at the #2, #3 or #4 spots for the entire duration of the broadcast presentation, and the cancelled and beloved All My Children was also at one point trending.

However, known soap writers, journalists, ardent fans, and actors of the genre, were all on Twitter last night live-tweeting their thoughts as the special went down, and there was definitely mixed reactions and reviews, when all was said and done.

What the special did not shy away from, but tackled, was Luke’s rape of Laura at the campus disco on General Hospital. and how that moment now, as Genie Francis (Laura), so eloquently put, would be considered as ‘date rape’ in our culture.  The series even included a pivotal moment where Laura addresses Luke (Tony Geary) about the rape years later, after helping Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) through her rape ordeal.

John Stamos (Ex-Blackie Parrish, GH) got a bevy of “Right On’s!” for his comment that the soaps do not get the credit that they deserve and clearly came through as one of the soaps greatest supporters, as did former The Doctors and Knots Landing star, Alec Baldwin.

However, throughout the two-hours, Andy Cohen’s commentary was thread throughout; mostly citing soap’s demise and the creation of reality-programming and his “Real Housewives” franchise, that the special touted as the new soap operas.  It continued on the narrative that people preferred to see real-life drama then made-up drama on a fictional soap.  And while, that has been a trend in American culture for decades, the commentary came off as often out of place in a celebration of the soaps; and bringing in a lot of negativity to the special that soap fans were tired of hearing.

In a lighting rod moment, Cohen stated: “I know Susan Lucci doesn’t agree with me, but I think that the Housewives have replaced soap operas because truth is stranger than fiction. Soaps became kind of unnecessary because you could do it with real people, and they’re writing the drama themselves.”

The special did also address the cancellations of All My Children and One Life to Live, (which many were not sure they were going to do – given this special was airing on ABC), where One Life’s leading lady and six-time Daytime Emmy winner, Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) said what we all wanted to sa ywhen the ax fell on the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, “People were horrified”.

Clearly, OJ Simpson and his murder trial and reality-programming were also given a chunk of time to show where the once mighty landscape of daytime soaps which once had 13 shows on the air, dwindled town to 4.  But, it would have been nice to see more time spent on how in this day and age, the people in this current landscape of the genre work so hard to get episodes done at an unbelievable pace, and how in that climate the performers still deliver gut-wrenching performances.

Former Loving, OLTL and Breaking Bad star, Bryan Cranston, did point out how the once powerful soaps, just don’t have the dollars they used to, and need to, to help with production costs and their taping schedule.

Viewers were reminded of soaps’ socially relevant storylines including hankie-inducing moments from: Robin (Kimberly McCullough) and Stone’s (Michael Sutton) HIV/AIDS storyline on General Hospital, to Billy Douglas being a gay teen coming out on One Life to Live, played by a young Ryan Phillippe.

There also did not seem time spent on the contributions of William J. Bell; one of the most prominent writers of the soap genre of all-time.

For many commenting on social media last night, there seemed to be a feeling of some glaring omissions of participants who could speak on this genre, who have been in the trenches as soap producers, soap writers, pundits, actors, and more, who were not included in the special.

So, what was your review of The Story of Soaps? How would you grade it? Do you feel it accurately reflected the history of the genre?  Were you happily surprised,  or when it came to the end where you over it, or somewhere in between? Sound off in the comment section below.  Below are some tweets from notables who have worked as an actor, a writer, and a journalist in the soaps.
