Poll Results: The L Word

UPDATE, 3 Sep, evening: We have a winner! Reid is the first to officially say it.

UPDATE, 3 Sep, morning: Okay, obviously I was a bit premature in taking down this poll. I originally removed it because of the weekly preview scene where Reid tells Luke to take care of his kidney because “If I’m gonna put myself out there and fall in love with you….”, to which Luke replies “Are you planning on falling in love with me?”

What idiot woulda thunk we wouldn’t get a definitive “I Love You” after that? Never mind, don’t answer that – that just opens us up to all sorts of speculation.

Instead, two weeks later, we get Luke telling Noah, that he’s in love with Reid, and then telling Reid he told Noah, in a fit of exasperation. Then when Reid calls him on it, he admits that yes, “I told Noah that I was in love with you.”

*headdesk* Could the writers have used any less romantic grammar? I mean really? using a complement clause “that I WAS in love with you” vs just plain “that I AM in love with you.” And if that wasn’t bad enough you then have Luke saying, “Honestly, Reid, right now, I’m not feeling much of that.” WTF?

And to add the final insult to injury, Reid’s response to “You could tell me you love me whenever you want” is “You wouldn’t believe me if I said it right now anyway.”  WTF?

Is it so hard for the writers to give them the chance to just say “I love you”?!? I need a simple subject-verb-object declarative sentence. It doesn’t even require any lint!

Obviously, this saga is still TO BE CONTINUED…

ORIGINAL POST: Okay, it’s not official yet, but it’s pretty awfully close. Given next week’s preview clip, I’m going to take down this poll as of Saturday 21 August, 2.19am. BTW, Reid was slightly ahead, even before the preview clip aired.

Who will say I Love You first?

  • Luke, then Reid (36%, 45 Votes)
  • Reid, then Luke (48%, 60 Votes)
  • Only Luke (7.2%, 9 Votes)
  • Only Reid (3.2%, 4 Votes)
  • Neither Luke nor Reid (5.6%, 7 Votes)

Total Voters: 125
poll opened: 16 August 2010
poll closed: 21 August 2010

    I am more than sad, I am disappointed in what will be the end of LURE … I can not believe they have so little imagination these writers that will make a fantastic couple ends that way.

    Hey LL,
    Just saw your comment over at SOS pulse. Fabulous write-up. I did my part to show LuRe love by putting a picture in my comment 😉
