As The World Turns


Will ATWT's Luke and Reid be the end game? Or, does Nuke have a fighting chance?

In the new Soapside: The Advocate’s Guide to Daytime monthly column out today from On-Air On-Soaps, Michael Fairman, an item of  ‘hot buzz’ interest lately  is speculating who will Luke end up with in the final episodes of As the World Turns come September.   With so many fans seemingly now split between Nuke, and Luke and Reid, it makes for an interesting guessing game.  

ATWT head writer Jean Passanante, says it’s a tough call for the fans, because all three actors involved in the triangle are pretty special: “I think Van Hansis [Luke] and Jake Silbermann [Noah] are the two cutest boys I have seen in my life. Van has an enormous heart and is an open book. I think a lot of what you see is what you get. He plays a character of great passion who sometimes goes too far with things. He is very appealing and very principled. Noah is more controlled, given the background of his family and his development, and they have a very nice quality together. Eric Sheffer Stevens [Reid] is just so brainy and has great timing and is funny. There is nothing stereotyped about any of these characters. These are three wonderful actors. In the case of Reid, we knew he was funny and a pain in the ass and a misanthrope, but without a face it’s sort of hard. Once we had cast Eric in the role, he informs everything for us. We are getting positive feedback for Luke and Reid. And who would’ve imagined we could bring anyone between Luke and Noah? You never know. I thought people would yell, ‘You can’t do that.’ But it’s been great!”

So it could it be that Reid and Luke  will ride off into the sunset? Or, can Luke and Noah find peace and start over, since they were each other’s first love?  Stay tuned!

*crosses fingers for a Luke/Reid endgame*

Uncross them, because it’s got to be NUKE to the end!

Since I have 0 faith in the writers, I’m sure we *will* be PLAGUED with a Nuke endgame, but at least LuRe will have made watching ATWT this summer worth it.

i don’t thing so lure is the endgame that’s that

Fans are split. 70% of us want REID.
And the numbers keep climbing. Lure is the real deal.

Where are you getting those numbers. The fans I know are fighting for NUKE. We are letting CBS know how we feel. We want the reunion of reuions. The Epic Love of Luke and Noah for the endgame!

get over yourself move on already luke and reid all the way

Sing it, sista! 😉

I was a hardcore Luke/Noah fan, but I’ve been completely swayed over to the Luke/Reid side and I’m not budging! Luke/Noah remind me of Lily/Dusty back in the day — sweet young lovers who are better as friends. Once the hot, enticing newcomer Holden came along, it was over for Dusty, and it’s the same with Reid vs. Noah. Reid is exactly the man Luke needs and Luke/Reid have become a supercouple almost overnight due to the incredible chemistry between Van Hansis and Eric Sheffer Stevens. ATWT will undoubtedly be going the sentimental route by reuniting several fave couples (Lily and Holden, Carly and Jack), so I hope that instead of having Luke go back to a relationship that wasn’t working for a long time, they give him a bold and exciting new future with Reid.

NUKE Forever

Keira….Ried is no Holden. He lack passion and power. Noah is more Holden like than Ried could ever be. I hope ATWT will not let us down and reunite the couple that started it all Luke and Noah! “NUKE to the end”

leave reid alone

Comparing Reid or Noah to Holden is a no sense. Noah is Noah and Reid is Reid. Noah is cute, kind, friendly and (a little too) pure and that’s all (Jake character isn’t really developed and it’s damage). Noah always did the same things again and again. When everythings go well, he’s in love with Luke but when something go wrong he always push him away without a thought for Luke’s feelings. That’s very egoïst of him. Reid is different of Noah. He’s more mature, he’s a cerebral person and a lot of person (nuke fan) think that he’s lack of emotions or feelings but it’s not the case and Luke already saw how sensitive Reid can be. Plus don’t forget, what Reid’s job is. As a neuro surgeon, he can’t be too emotional. And contrary to Noah, Reid is more honest with his feelings and he doesn’t afraid to tell how he feels or what he thinks. I don’t think he’s lack of passion and power. He’s more interesting than Noah. I really hope that LURE will be stay together at the end.

I couldn’t agree more with all of this!

I vote for Luke/Reid.

There was never any real chemistry with Noah, they were actually quite dull together

NUKE forever

Yo Rob…. When have you seen chemistry between Ried and Luke? All I’ve seen or heard is dry wit from Ried, and Lukes endless whiny flirtaion. You vote wrong.

put this in your thick head already luke and noah broke up forgood they are over and you now it lure forever my vote is luke and reid get over yourself

You have a right to your vote, but it would be a vote worth making if you would open your mind to consider Luke and Noah as the dream couple they really are. There has been no time for us to really know what Reid is capable of. If the Soap was continuing there would be every change that we would see a driven man who regretfully forgets the one he loves. You know the story, the career driven mate while the partner goes unfulfilled in their life together and the eventual disastrous end. You know Luke is to impulsive, emotional and YOUNG for Ried. He needs to be with Noah and the two of them grow and mature through the things that endure together. Think about….NUKE to the end!

Unfortunately it sounds like it will be NUKE endgame. Thats just wrong and what Ive heard they plan on doing to Reid is even worse.

I hope Goutman and that hack Passanante never work again!!!

I hope it’s Luke & Reid. I’ve been re-watching videos of Luke & Noah & there’s not the passion like with Luke & Reid. Luke & Reid complete each other. Reid is helping Luke to mature & not be needy & clingy & Luke is helping Reid realize there’s more to life than work & to become human.

I use to be a Nuke fan but I have been converted 100% to the joys of LuRe. There is just such a passion between Luke and Reid that Noah and Luke seriously lacked when they were together. I am really hoping for a LuRe Endgame!

thank you

I CANNOT STAND THE THOUGHT OF LUKE AND REID TOGETHER. I don’t mind the love triangle, I think it’s good that there is finally one, but SERIOUSLY!?!?! LUKE AND NOAH have been through it all, Reid is just a pompous ass who is occasionally funny to watch. LUKE AND NOAH FOREVER!!!!!!!


NUKE forever…..NUKE to the end! This is the only way it MUST end.

in your dreams lure forever;lure to the end this is the only way it must end

Come now, aren’t you a believer in beauty. There is a beauty in something that captures the pure moments of loves beginning and dsicovery all the through until it ultimate realization. That something is NUKE. Why not join us, you know you want to. “NUKE to the end”.

seriously the idea of luke and reid makes me want to vomit, mainly because reid cares but has no way of showing it or acting on it. I was a fan of the love triangle for awhile but ultimately L&N can depend on each other and be there for each other, and Reid is too much of a self-absorbed workaholic.

L&N can depend on each other and be there for each other? Don’t you mean, Luke can TRY to be there for Noah while Noah treats him like crap? And I think Reid has had NO PROBLEM showing Luke that he cares. He’s been very straight forward and honest with Luke about his feelings. It’s Luke that isn’t sure, because he’s got Noah stringing him along. Pushing him away one second, then getting jealous the next. Noah doesn’t know what he wants. Reid on the other hand has made his feelings very clear. He wants Luke, no games, no BS. And I LOVE IT! LURE ALL THE WAY!!!!

i am a fan of luke and reid lure all the way lure forever i think all of nuke fans should be in a crazy hospital

GAELYN THOMSON – Ha ha ha, you so crazy! I love the part about the NUKE fans and the crazy hospital. But I think you got it mixed up. Isn’t it more like Luke and Reid are a nutty comdination, in that they makes no sense, no sense at all. NUKE has history and beauty, and at least their in the same age range and the same stage of life, unlike the that old guy Reid trying to get with the young Luke….Huummmm (?)
NUKE To The End

GAELYN THOMSON – Who deserves to be in a hospital is nonsense you by what you say.
Doing a review of your brain.
NUKE FOREVER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kelly Rainbow Thanks !!!!!!!
Reid pompous ass loved your comment.
Luke & Noah Forever.
NUKE To The End.

Well really a crazy hospital? Noah was BLIND, major life change, of course he was a little off-balance. Reid is a complete jerk to Luke, if you think Noah is stringing him along just look at the signals Reid is sending to him! Luke&Noah have been together sooooo long and they know everything about each other, and now at the end of it all Reid is going to burst in and ruin it? No way. Nuke had real love, ergo they will eventually end up together…just like they always do!

Luke and Reid!!! They have to have the sunset ending, cause tbh, that will make so many people squeel and cry with happiness! Luke has had 3 years with Noah, and ill admit some of it has been nice and there has been cute moments, but Luke and Reid, are more passionate. They remind me of Katie and Brad, Carly and Jack. Hate at first, turns into passion and desire, and eventually leads to true love. Granted, i want Noah to have something going for him. So he’s got his sight back, great, he can go pursue his career in LA, which gives Nuke fans their closure, knowing Luke is with someone he loves (REID!!!!!!!!) and Noah is finally living his dream. But yes, like i said, it has to be Reid and Luke that are endgame. They are perfect. And already so many people are so emotionally involved in them, including me. Its Eric and Vans acting, im not crazy, i just cry when Reid be sad 🙁 LOL! But seriously, LURE!! It makes sense 😀


I sincerely hope the writers give us LuRe endgame. Nuke had its day and that day has passed! The incredible chemistry between Van/Eric Luke/Reid puts Nuke’s to shame.

It’s time for both Noah and Luke to move on. And Reid is so much more of a wonderful and multi-dimensional character with Luke around. They’re great together. Plain and simple. LuRe is the future, Nuke is the past.

Luke will always be a child with Noah. Yes he will always love Noah , but what he has found with Reid is a complete respectful kind of love coming out of maturity , experience and chemistry. Luke absoulutely needs Reid to complete and understand him. Let Noah go off and write movies. Reid needs Luke to make him happy too.

Luke and Noah was over a long time ago. What have their relationship accomplished in 3 years, NOTHING. Their is so much chemistry between Luke and Reid. They should be together in the end.

And what Soap Opera relationships accomplish much at all. They spin on and on, which is the nature of Soaps. Luke and Noah deserve to have the ending they’ve loved for for 3 years. Let give them our support…NUKE to the end!

Luke/Reid all the way! Love them. The chem is off the charts.ATWT is Lure!

I think Luke and Reid are hot for each other and they should end up together. I do think Luke and Noah are played out, Luke and Reid bring out the best in each other. LURE all the way!

LUKE & REID!!!!! Please, they are the only reason I’m even watching lately. I find myself so excited just to see if they are on. I never really had much use for Luke, but with Reid he’s just SO much better. Those two are just HOT together. Noah doesn’t stand a chance…..

Please let it be Luke and Reid…

If luke reunite with Noah I will never recover…

Luke and Reid belong together 🙂

fan of Luke and Reid i love seeing him from the being when Reid first meet Luke.also when there kiss in the hotel ,i just love Reid he is so sexy and hot for Luke he never lie are punch Luke away like Noah did to Luke he Alway make Luke feel like he don.t want to be we him.LR and all the way

hey writers since am a writer too ill give you an avdice if you want you can take it, or leave it.Luke and reid are the couple to stay its the growing part moving on as the world turns we change with seassons and along with it we do too,but noah can still be there as luke and noah reposition their relaitionship and understand that their will always share that special bond as teenage sweethearts ,they will still be friends,like brothers didint will all have gone and had that and the glory of it is ,as the world turns as such has the meaning that one cycle closes and a new one begins .Well luke and reid can get married and noah can be the best man, what an ending that will be.Think about it.

i love it

This is wacky! Old people always try to down play young love, because they missed their chance. But the writers of the show have a chance to end this story in a powerful way. Letting young, pure and true love find it’s way through the dark times, over coming the adversities, only to emerge stronger and brighter than ever. Luke and Noah leaving Oakdale together, heading to Europe to live out thier dreams. This is the stuff of legends. A LOVE THAT IS EPIC! LuRe does NOT have the history or the struggle that makes for epic love stories. This is the end of ATWT and it makes sense that it ends in a Great Love Story. The surviving love of Luke and Noah!

put this in your thick head luke and noah is over forgood and don’t you for get it luke belongs with reid and you now it luke and reid forever

Come on now, I know you believe in EPIC love and beautiful endings, that can only happen when Luke and Noah over come the diversion that is Dr. Oliver. When NUKE declare their eternal love for the last time, it will be EPIC…. come on just say it with me one time “NUKE to the end”


What your saying is not even relevant. NUKE is not an AMERICAN EPIC, it is a universal EPIC of true love, that has it’s root in OUR hopeful youth (do you remember your?) and it tells the story of growing together through life’s adversities. As for demographics, do you have any you can show us? I believe the television producers consider what their viewers care about when the plan their stroylines and the ratings bare it out. Think about it the entire Luke – Reid thing and this late date is just a marketing ploy (don’t you see that). This conversattion we all are paricipating in is proof that it is working and this is the kind attention the producers could never buy! As for you slow LuRe people keep on watching in the blind hope of seeing the YOUNG guy sattled with the OLD guy (ball and chain) forever. And we NUKE folks will be watching as well. It’s a Win Win for CBS and maybe even ATWT. You’re a funny European smart-buttocks? And I love you babe…but NUKE will be the endgame and the twist that will make the ending memorable. And also it’s stirs the hopes of us fans, leaving us wanting more; and thats a basis for any possible continuation as you mentioned. And you under estimate the growing clamor for NUKE. Why don’t you do some GOOGLE research. You’ll see the web sites for NUKE are springing up everywhere. I’ve looked and I have not seeing much out there for LuRe….DON’T KILL THE MESSENGER!….NUKE to the end!!

By the way I too am a writer. You must know that the break up, the insertion of a new love interest which is doomed at the outset, the fated original lovers finally reunited; these are among the standard elements of Soap Opera writing. Case in point; Lilly and Holden, Jack and Carly both of ATWT. Also Victor and Nikki, and Nick and Sharon both of the Y & R. No matter how many times these couples broke up and “moved on” marrying other people (the writers driving the story forward), they found each other again. Validating the idea of “Soul Mates”. Seriously, I do think this is the case with Luke and Noah.

you are either too american or too fixated on cliches cause, we dont have these endings in europe maybe for just once you learn something from us and not us from you.God did not just create america the world turns and one other thing no one has anticipated the impact van and eric would have and their chemistry is just amazing on screen .Before no one even watched van and jake in europe ,we have only started watching it cause the difference these couple has made and is making for cbs so my dear friend there is always a first time for everything we call it a market niche in these business.Youre either too young or not expirienced enough to see it,rules are made in theory and in greek philosophy are to be broken to confirm the rule.times are changing .the world turns .Theres an ending for you.

My friend, you should put more thought into what you say. You seem to to be the one who is FIXATED, with your irrelevant diatribe about AMERICAN verses EUROPEAN influences in story telling; NO ONE CARES. Stay on topic, this is about AT THE WORLD TURNS and which couple the fans think will be the endgame, Luke and Noah or Luke and UGLY Reid! Apparently you think attacking me will substitute for actually addressing the points I stressed in my posts. Dodge if you will but it makes you appear to have nothing more to add. It’s okay to just STOP or give in and join the NUKE team. If you are a writer you should know that there are timeless elements to a good ending and that none of them are called American or European. Endings are about providing closer to the primary conflicts in a story in a way that is true to the story and satisfying to the viewer or reader. Your condescending statements about my experience are laughable. I have lived in Europe and for what it’s worth I am very familiar European Soaps (i.e. Hollyoaks, Coronation Street, Familie, Verbortene Liebe, Emmerdale, Eastenders, The Archers and more), BUT that’s not what we are discussing, is it? As for chemistry between Luke and Reid, it never feels natural, Reid (Eric) seems a bit uncomfortable in these scenes. Luke (Van) is excellent and natural in all of his romantic scenes with both Noah (Jake) and Reid. But it’s Noah’s sensitive connection to Luke that gets me every time. They are wonderful together. By the way you are WRONG about European fans, I have many friends and relatives in Europe and I happen know many them followed ATWT before LuRe came along. Also NUKE has a large international fan base. Do some YOU TUBE research, Luke and Noah film clips are all over the members channels from all over the world! Get Your Facts Right!!
NUKE to the end.

Search on youtube and you will see that absolute majority of the international channels on atwt is about Luke & Noah.
Make no mistake most NUKE loves and wants to see them together.
NUKE To The End.

You tell ’em girl. In fact as of my last count there are Luke and Noah (Nuke) fan groups in 24 Countries on 6 Continents.

…only one word comes to mind, WOW1

I am a woman totally in love NUKE.
I love seeing them together.
Jake & Van are so perfect together.
Noah`s blue eyes brown eyes when he meets Luke is an explosion of beauty , love and tenderness.
I do birthday in july and the best present for me would see my Luke & Noah together and happy.
I hate this ugly and insignificant character Reid.
Noah will always be the lovelife of Luke.
Luke will always be the happy ending of Noah.
Atwt whiters, we love Luke & Noah (Van & Jake).
We are many and true to your boys.
Do not make us suffer more,please.
NUKE To The End.

NUKE To The End.

I’m rooting for Luke/Reid Endgame. I’ve been a really devoted Nuke fan and never thought I could handle seeing Luke with someone else but Reid makes sense on so many levels. Luke seems to grow as a man beside him and they are much more equal than Nuke. Nuke have ended up in a toxic pattern and I seriously doubt they can get back from it. Certainly not in a matter of months. Even if they were to get back together things will never be the same because of Reid. It’s changing Luke and getting him in touch with a part of himself that has lain dormant and won’t go back to lurkdom. Luke needs to move on and Reid is it.

Of course Luke/Reid. I truly just cannot fathom the fact that there are still people who actually want Luke to choose Noah over Reid. I get that the idea of “first love becoming the last one simultaneously” is attractive, and clearly, can be beautiful to watch BUT. Really, in this case? Come on, you can be an optimist but honestly, to think their (“Nuke’s”) relationship would last and actually be satisfying to any of them (especially to Luke) is just delusional. Not after months (or years, to be perfectly honest) of constant push-pull action. I tried pretty hard to think of one thing that could make me believe they’d somehow work it out, eventually. Nothing even close to logical came out. Jmho.

LUKE & REID!!!!!! There is no question who Luke should end up with…..the guy who actually WANTS him. Noah has treated Luke like crap for months. He blamed him for losing his sight, which was freaking ridiculous! He pushed him away. He started hanging out with Richard. Noah was a complete JERK to Luke, who was only trying to help. And now that Noah can finally see, THANKS TO LUKE AND REID, he has the audacity to want Luke back! GMAFB! Noah doesn’t deserve Luke. Reid may be a smart@ss, but he’s been pretty nice to Luke considering. And he actually WANTS to be with Luke. No games, no BS….I like you and want to be with you. How refreshing. Not to mention incredibly HOT! If Luke chooses boring @ss Noah over Hot Sexy Reid I will be Pi$$ed!

you said it sister

Sexy Ried….What a Joke. All Reid has over Noah is a giraffe neck and bugging eyes. Come on Noah has been through a rough time being blind. and he did push Luke away, wrong it was. But haven’t that been the way of the soaps forever? (I Love You, but go away, now come back). If show had time we’d see Ried doing some dumb stuff too. Oh Yeah…Didn’t he recently chose his job over Luke….but when he changes his mind, will you forgive and forget all. Give Noah a break, you know you love him. Come on say with me “NUKE to the end, NUKE to the end”.

luke belongs with reid not noah and you now it luke and reid forever i don’t love luke and noah i love luke and reid

If you just stop and think about it, and ake a good look at Ried, You will realize that Noah is the only man for Luke and luke for Noah….NUKE to the end!!

lure to the end

Love heals all wounds.
This love belongs to Luke & Noah.
Reid is a rebound passenger.
Noah is the love of Luke.
Luke is the happy ending of Noah.

Your words are like music…”Luke is the happy ending of Noah”. I agree and I can’t wait…NUKE to the end.

they are over forgood get over it and move on already

i want luke to open hes eyes and wake up already and choose reid what are you waiting for luke reid is the besthing that ever happend to you.don’t let him get away.luke you belong with reid and you know it don’t hide your feelings for reid tell him how you feel about your fellings to him don’t bottle it up is not healthey tell him how you feel about him.luke wake up and choose reid

It’s NUKE and onlt NUKE to the end!!

are you out of your mind are you crazy there is no way in hell that’s going to happend lure all the way to the end

It that it “are you out of your mind”. Listen, all of you LuRe need to come to your senses, there is nothing even interesting about Luke anbd Ried….NUKE to the end!

Nuke Nuke Nuke Nuke together.
Luke and Noah poetry of love.

As a gay man, I would choose Reid in real life.
He’s so honest, funny and hot he would certainly be a juicy catch.
But I don’t know if the writers have the guts to finally show a gay couple which is balanced, out and proud and shows the passion of a normal, healthy couple.
It seems to me that they prefer suffering, conflicted and deprived gay men: they’re more reassuring for the average, obtuse viewer. It’s like “they’re gay, so they need to suffer ’cause it’s really not so okay to be gay”.
I find Reid and the relationship between him and Luke one of the most refreshing, passionate and representative story.
I hope ATWT will prove me wrong in the end instead of putting back Luke and Noah together out of some sacred and not due loyalty to Nuke fans.
I think what writers owe to their public is a real story, not an adolescent dream.

I am not a gay man, but I know LOVE and Love is Luke and Noah! You speak of passion between Luke and Ried; well I must have missed that episode. Seriously, Ried is so busy being a “Dry Wit” that his emotions hardly show through at times. He also feels much older than Luke which seems to through them out of balance if you ask me. Luke seem more playful in an immature way, he fits better with Noah. To me balance is Noah’s smoldering emotions and honest virtue paired with Luke’s impulsive and emotionally demanding personality…and oh yeah – they look so good together. I agree there has been suffering and struggle with NUKE, but wouldn’t that serve as a testament to gay relationships, that they like straight relationships go through troubles and survive and become stronger. To me it’s more realistic this way, I can relate to it. Besides I find “normal” to be subjective and life a bit messy. Life is fill with struggel, exceptance and hopefully satisfaction. for me right now satisfaction is Luke and Noah as the endgame. Think about and join us…NUKE to the end.
It makes sense

Thanks for your words thesaneone.
You know what is true love.
Our boys have and are experiencing many difficulties but still will win this malignant called Reid.
Out of our story Eric Steffens.
We want our Nuke back.
I miss Luke & Noah.
Nuke until the end.
I`m not gay but I`m a woman in love with Nuke forever end ever.
I`m not gay eu sou uma mulher apaixonada Nuke

youre a man! do you have like a girlfriend or a job to work at! i cant believe almost all people watch this!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Luke and Reid!!! Never have I been so emotionally invested in a couple! Their chemistry is so strong and their acting so compelling, you don’t even think “this is a same sex couple.” You just think, this is two people so inexplicably drawn to each other that NOTHING can keep them apart!!!! I have read all the comments on youtube and 99.9% of the viewer are crazy in love with LuRe……Lure HAS TO BE endgame….

You are all CRAAAAZZZZY! LuRe as you call them is a total BORE! There is real beauty between Luke and Noah, they belong together. The writers owe all of us who have faithfully followed them (unlike the traitors), to see them together in the end. They are the Lilly and Holden of the today! Face it beyond Reid’s dry jokes and Luke’s mothering of him to make him human, there hasn’t been one beleivable hot, intense moment between them. Fear Not, there is still hope for traitors, if you REPENT NOW, we will let you back into the fold! Now repeat after me “Nuke to the end, Nuke to the end”!

NUKE FOREVER……………………..

You go sista….NUKE to the end!!

noah get lost already

somebody kill off noah already

Hmmm… How many of you Nuke fans are in here to defend a Nuke endgame?? 3 or 4 maybee? and how many is here for the LuRe endgame?? 90 others so what does it tell us???
That most will have a happy ending for LuRe so you can argue as much as you want, it will drown in all the other comments in here.

Hi Laura,
I`II say again,comments from fans Lure are just a few fans that reside in the U.S but the world is great.
There are many NUKE fans in the U.S and especially in international countries,which is the vast majority of fans NUKE.
I say this because I search a lot on the internet,if you search will also see that I`m telling the truth.
I would not claim anything without being sure of what I`m saying.
I imagine that the writers just read the comments from
If the writers pay more attention to the INTERNT,thay would see that there are more fans in the world of NUKE you fans Lure(search youtube).
The base of fans of Luke & Noah,is solid as we are with them for over three years increasingly we NUKE.
We are not superficial fans will be with the boys until the end.
We truly love Van Hansis & Jake Silbermann.
ATWT writers were careless with the story of Luke & Noah and forgotten who really stayed with them during these four years by giving audience to the show.
I hope Holden & Lily also stay together ,because I and many fans like them too.
Still respect your opinion because we all have the right to love whomever you choose.

Luke and Reid! Reid is such an awesome character and he actually has personality, unlike Noah who seems to be suffering from bipolar disorder. Also, the chemistry between LuRe is mindblowing, Nuke never had that. They had SOME chemistry, but nothing like LuRe, and even the speck that they used to have is long gone now. They’ve run their course – it’s time to move on.


luke and reid endless love van hansis and eric sheffer stevens is perfect together always

True love is not forgotten.
Luke & Noah is true love forever.
Happy ending for Luke & Noah.
they deserve for all they have to stay together.


What people seem to forget, is that there’s a very big difference between FIRST love and TRUE love. And, yes, some people get both in the same package, but I don’t believe that’s the case with Nuke.
Come on, if Luke goes back to Noah, it won’t be believable anyway, because Luke will be choosing the safe, boring guy, instead of the mature, passionate, awesome, adorable, brilliant and exciting guy and that would be a step back for both him and Noah. I’m a little biased, because I adore Reid and want to see him happy, but Reid really is the better choice here. Nuke should remain on good terms, as friends, but nothing more.
Win-win-win for everyone: Noah moves to L.A. to work on his movies, Reid becomes head of the new wing, with Luke running his foundation.

How many people have lived their lives looking back at their frist loves and wondering what could have been. Regret is a terrible thing and it’s very real for many people. I think you should consider that very often the FIRST LOVE is the TRUE LOVE. Fight for what is pure and beautiful, full of excitement and discovery, forever young and lasting. That something is what we have in Luke and Noah. Join us….NUKE to the end!

The first love is actually hardly ever the true love. And if we’re looking at real first loves, then Kevin would be Luke’s true love, not Noah. And if staying in a relationship where you constantly get blamed for everything, have to apologise every five minutes and get emotionally hauled around like a sick puppy is true love, then I pity anyone who ever finds it.
On top of that, I think Luke will regret not finding out what could and would have been with Reid way more than anything that has to do with Noah. Face it, if Nuke gets back together at the end, it’ll be history service, not fan service. Not anymore, anyway.
Now, why don’t you join us and come over to the dark LuRe-side? We’ve got teddybears, cushions, hot make-out-sessions, a texas bull to ride, chess and extra large sandwiches. You’re more than welcome to join us.

Needless to say you make some good points but there’s still no rule that says a First Love is NOT usually a True Love, in fact who says a person can’t have more than one True in His or her life time…HUMMMM. As for Kevin, I think you will agree that was a youthful crush NOT real love. Kevin never returned the feeling in the slightes, this could never been seen as a First, Second or Third Love. Face it Noah is Luke First real Love. You dramtize to much, Noah and Luke have both had some growing up to do as everyone does. During traumatic times (and we all go through them) isn’t like people to take things out on those they feel closest to. Even Luke and Lilly discussed what Noah would be like because of the emotional taruma of blindness. Lilly’s motherly advise was, that due to Noah trauma hard times were ahead but they must endure. I pity the persons who need a fragile love that can not carry them through terrible times and that is not strong enough to understand brokenness, such as blindness. Let’s not forget the times that Noah helped Luke to be a BETTER man, by encouraging him to do the right thing, an example being the school elections, and how Noah stood by Luke to get him through some many family disasters (i.e. Holden’s reported death). Noah defied his father and poured his entire life into Luke’s and his family. Now thats a Love worthy of a second chance not PITY. Noah has earned the right to grow as partner. Oh yeah Ried (Mr. Snarky Tongue, and blistering attitude) he’s no barrel of laughs or kindness, and those bugged eyes of his, face it he’s ugly (that counts in Soaps). Teddy bears, bull rides those are games, wouldn’t you rather create films like Luke and Noah. Telling epic love stories of deep passionate love like Noah’s New Years gift of real romance and passion that made Luke into a MAN!!! I think you are mistaken about the dark side, it’s filled with NUKE discovering uncharted territory if you know what I mean. Luke’s regret over not having an chess-burger (oh oh, I meant Cheese Burger) is no comparison the regret of missing the meal of a life time – NOAH! Why be a hater, We got room for you right here in NUKE Town!! “NUKE to the end”

The World has Turned, and it’s facing Luke and Noah…NUKE to the end!


thesaneone tanks i love you .

You say it well…NUKE ENDGAME. The clouds are gathering for LuRe, and the rain is about to pour, and every drop washes the darkenss away, revealing beauty that is NUKE, NUKE, NUKE!!!!!….NUKE to the end!

We love what we are faithful and a Luke & Noah a 3 years to see our boys deserve and happy together.
Thesaneone love for Nuke brings people togheter by a tie of friendship even when they are far away in other countries like me ,you end all the fans.
I`am from Brazil and Ìam a straight woman in love with NUKE until the end.
Reid fans are superficial.
We are many and true throughout the world.
We`re just tired of seeing writers ATWT separate ours Luke & Noah.
It is painfull for us fans to see how the writers are destroying one of the most beautifol love stories on television.
ATWT writers are destroying your owm creation.
Jake Silbermann / Van Hansis actor are wonderful and beautiful.
The chemistry between the two actors is perfect.
Reid looks older brother Luke.
NOAH is a soul mate LUKE the other half that fit perfectly when they are together.
Thanks for posting my previous comment.
Have been recorded the last chapters of the novel.
Let`s hope that the pure and true love to prevail LUKE & NOAH.
thesaneone thanks for sharing the beauty of love Nuke us.

Thanks my sister. We have to stand together for NUKE. From the moment Reid showed interest in Luke I and others have poured emails and post cards into CBS demanding that we get what we have waited for Luke and Noah together as the endgame. We have made our voices for the beautiful love of NUKE heard by the powers at CBS. So hang on in there, it will be NUKE to the end!

Luke and Noah are like young, immature, first love….very sweet but not really meant to last forever. When I look at them together, I see two young boys.
Luke and Reid on the other hand are all grown up! When I see the two of them together, I see two MEN. Two hot and sexy men who are hot for each other.
Luke and Noah never interested me at all. Luke and Reid are the ONLY reason I watch everyday. I literally CAN’T WAIT everyday to see if they are on.
IMHO Luke and Noah are just plain dull. I’m sick of Noah’s constant WHINING. Luke was not at fault for Noah’s accident. It was just that, an accident. Luke ran all over the country to get Noah the best chance at seeing again. Everything Luke did was for Noah and all Noah could do was push him away, blame him, berate him and generally treat him like dirt. WHY on earth would Luke want to go back to that? Noah doesn’t deserve him. At least Reid actually WANTS Luke. And he’s not playing some immature little games. He has feelings for Luke and has been straight forward about those feelings.
Luke and Noah may have been sweet once upon a time….but they can’t hold a candle to Luke and Reid! And not only does Luke know it, so does NOAH!!!!!!

Shaela everything that happened and happeningon ATWT is the fault of the writers.
The characters LUKE & NOAH is not to blame if the novel had restrictionson Gays characters.
VAN HANSIS & JAKE SILBERMANN interpreted with love and dedicacionto their characters.
VAN & JAKE are wonderful together.
Were three years of pure magic with NUKE and hope it will continue until september with love NUKE.
NUKE is family,love,passion,tenderness………..
LUKE & NOAH marriage.

I understand you pain, but don’t be a Noah hater. Your right they are young and Noah has been through what has to be one of the worst things a person can face, blindness. A friend of mine told me he’d rather loose his hearing or the ability to speak instead of loosing his sight. It must be traumatic to suddenly go blind, so isn’t understandable that a person could be bitter and confused because of it? When people are hurting they often take it out on those closest to them, but give a guy a chance. He still loves Luke completely. And you are right no one should be treated badly, but love is strong enough to see us through bad times as well as good (and life is filled with both). You call their love “immature, first love’, which is what it started out as but it is true love and how long it’s meant to last that depends on the two them. If love can grow and mature, it can last. Don’t give up on Luke and Noah, just look at them they belong together. Luke is still young and he shouldn’t end up with a bitter tongued condescending OLD guy no matter how straight a talker he is. Also Reid has been in the story a relatively short time so we haven’t seen what he might do in traumatic situations. We did see him recently chose his job over Luke, Katie had to make him see the error of his choice, then he changed mind. It’s good that he did reverse his decision but it also shows that given time and circumstance he too might not be perfect. Noah has stood by Luke during many terrible time in his and his family’s lives, Noah deserves a chance to get back on track after one of the worse events in his life and fight with all his being for the man he loves. I think their love is true and despite it all you can see it’s still there between them smoldering like a flame that can’t be extinguished. It will rekindle brighter and stronger than ever. And their adversities will have made them wiser and ready for the what life will bring….NUKE to the end!


In his worlds are poetry to me.
Never giv up on Luke & Noah.
Because of them still watch ATWT.

Happy ending for the couple we love.
Luke & Noah forever !!!

luke and reid all the way

I don’t think so….Noah and Luke are buring up the web pages and the flame is getting hotter and hotter with anticipation…NUKE* NUKE* NUKE* NUKE To The End

thesaneone how are you?
True love stories never have endings.
Luke & Noah is True Love.
Miss my Nuke.
NUKE To The End.
Jake & Van I Love You !!!!!!!!

Hi Silvana,

You are so right about true love stories never ending. That is exactly what Luke and Noah are a true love story. Not some fantasy love where there is no adversity, but the real thing, love that faces life’s ups and Downs and find it way. This boys are a real Super Couple. We’ll see them together and for the endgames.

Hello Friends….I’s time to hear right from the Actor’s mouths.
From VAN HANSIS (Luke) “…I personally believe that Luke and Noah should end up together”
From JAKE SILBERMAN (Noah) “.I really do hope they end up together. I really hope and think it will happen”

Wikipedia List Luke Snyder and Noah Mayer as one of daytime tv’s Super Couples.
Link –

These are the words of the actor’s (Van/Jake), themselves during a video taped interview. This proves that the real chemistry is between Luke and Noah, even Van and Jake can see that. It’s time that all of you LuRe fans come to your senses. The LuRe story line came to late in the history of ATWT to really be meaningful to ATWT’s over all story, so it must be a plot twist to shake things up and bring additional drama to the endgame. But with all due respect to LuRe fans, without a doubt it really should be NUKE as the endgame. Just open your minds to consider it, that’s all we’re saying.

Hello Eveyone,

I just have to say it again. As of my last count there are Luke and Noah (NUKE) fan groups in 24 Countires on 6 Continents.

…only one word comes to mind (everybody join me this time), WOW! And again WOW!


To all LuRe Fans; the online word is that your man Eric Sheffer Stevens (Reid Oliver) also supports Luke And Noah (NUKE) for the endgame. Go figure… I take it back he’s not such a bad guy after all. NUKE to the end!

no he doesn’t because he have deep feelings for luke and he loves him move on

I also read interviews with actors.
Luke & Noah always.

luke and noah is over forgood this time there is no going back at all somebody kill off noah already my vote is for luke and reid they belong together i love to see them marryed in the end and move to dallas and live happley ever after

Hello there Gaelyn. It time for you to pull your head out of the clouds. Luke and Noah’s relationship has been ground breaking in ATWT’s history. With the show coming to an end, it makes sense that the producers would take this opportunity to close this storyline by reuniting Luke and Noah, the couple that started it all. In Michael Fairman’s recent interview with Van, Van stated that he thinks Luke is torn between both men. This supports the idea that there is still something to be resolved between Luke and Noah, not Reid. Van also said that there will be a resolution in the last couple of episodes. Think about it, if Luke and Reid are together now and in the end what is there left to resolve. But Lukes feeling for Noah and Noahs feeling for Luke, thats the only thing left to resolve. This will happen with the NUKE reuniting once and for all.


I get sick and tired of people talking about Luke and Noah being endgame because they were together for 3 yrs. Who cares. That is not what would happen in real life. No one in their right mind would ever stay in a relationship as toxic as so called Nuke. It ‘s just not believable. I myself had already stopped watching because of that unrealistic couple. Once Dr. Reid Oliver came along I started watching again and will continue to watch until the end. Eric and only his protrayal of Dr. O brought me and a lot of other viewers back to this show. I have never seen Van’s acting blossom like it has since Eric has been on board. Even his acting with other cast member have upped their skills. Wish that it didn’t have to end.

I’m agree with you !!! LURE ENDGAME 🙂

yeah right! its very impossible for nuke to end up!


>and lure or whatever they called that shouldnt end up with eachother!<


luke and reid endgame

Luke and Reid must end together. There are wonderful and hot together. The chemistry between them is unbelievable.Luke brings the human side in Reid, and Reid is witty, honest, unpredictable, hot and really loves Luke. Reid’s love is more mature .I also feel that Luke is falling for him as well. It’s bad enough that the soap will be off the air, please don’t leave us with a” bad taste” in our mouth. Please,keep Reid and Luke together!!!!!!

Nuke all the way! It’s destiny.

Reid is hot as heck, I’ll give you that. Love him! But not w/Luke.

Guess it’s a moot point anyway now. BOOOoooo ATWT

whats wrong with all of these people i dont care if lure ands up!

noah will be straight and will end up being with a woman! sounds great huh< because their men! DUMBASSES

I know this show has been over for months and I ran across this by accident….guess no one will be reading but I must add that ANYONE who did not want Luke and Reid to wind up together has to be totally crazy. I have watched soaps for many years and never have I seen anything like the chemistry between Van and Eric. When these two got on screen together pure magic happened. The Luke/Noah storyline did nothing for me, but Luke and Reid were characters that came to life for me and made me feel as if they were REAL people and I was looking in on the beginning of the most beautiful love story. I was crushed that the writers teased the fans, then gave us the horrific ending but comforted that LuRe really was endgame and Luke will never be able to go back to NOah after having a man like Reid.

I can’t agree more ( to reidstheman) it’s amazing to me that i never posted here, for some reason I missed it.As a long time watcher i had favorite couples through the years, but I never loved them like I did Luke and Reid.They were wonderful to watch as they fell in love.This was the best Love Story I’ve ever seen.And there was nothing stereotypical about it.Watching them smile at each other was enough to make me stop breathing.And the smiles, and the kisses.i never liked luke and noah…they were so young when they were together.But Luke and Reid …these were men who brought out the very best in each other.They were like two pieces in a puzzle….one without the other would not be complete.The writers did a diservice to the fans by letting Reid die and letting Luke be alone to grieve.There was no sane reason for it and i’ll never understand why.And i totally agree with you…Luke would never go back to noah….Reid loved Luke and Luke loved Reid and in my mind they did have their happily ever after.Reid never died and it was a terrible nightmare Luke had.In my mind they’re getting ready to celebrate Christmas in their home.

Richard Roundtree, ‘Generations’, ‘ATWT” and ‘Shaft’ Star, Dead at 81

Motion picture and television leading man, Richard Roundtree, has passed away at the age of 81. The actor, best known for his role in the iconic film Shaft, and its sequels, died from complications from pancreatic cancer on October 24th in his home in Los Angeles.

In a statement, Roundtree’s manager, Patrick McMinn shared, “Richard’s work and career served as a turning point for African American leading men in film. The impact he had on the industry cannot be overstated.”

During his extensive credits and career, Roundtree made two stops to two daytime soap operas. In 1990 till 1991, Roundtree played Dr. Daniel Ruebens on the defunct NBC soap opera Generations. He later appeared on As the World Turns from 2002-2003, taking on the role of Oliver Travers, the father to T. Marshall Travers played by Lamman Rucker.

Roundtree’s leading lady on Generations, Jonelle Allen took to her Facebook upon learning the news of the death of her former castmate and friend, expressing: “My Leading Man on Generations. I Am Very Sad. My Condolences To Your Family. Dearest Richard Roundtree.”

In a subsequent post, Allen shared a photo of their Generations’ characters, Daniel and Doreen about to lip-lock. Jonelle stated, “In the scene with him I kept thinking: ‘Shaft is about to kiss ME!!!’ Thank You.”

On Generations, Roundtree’s character of Daniel Reubens was a brilliant doctor, who was accused of killing someone by causing an explosion at a lab in 1974. He and his daughter, Maya, then went “underground” for the next 15 years. Maya was played by Viveca A. Fox.
