    I don't mind telling all of you..I cried a lot when Reid was hit by that train. I loved him. He is a wonderful actor, and so is Luke. My husband said, It's just a show,", but no,it isn't! I have watched ATWT since I was a little girl, and the people seem as if they are part of my family. I don't see how you homophobics can be so darned cruel. You better watch out, karma has a big kick! One of you children, sisters, brothers, grandchildren are someone you love deeply could come out as gay. Would you hate them? Where is love and compassion in this world. Reid and Luke were perfect together. I don't see the reasoning in the show letting it end this tragic way. CHRIS should have gone way sooner to seek help for his diseased heart, and there wouldn't have been such a rush to get the new heart for him. He had waited so long, and his heart is so damaged, even the artificial one,Dr. Dixon was going to use wouldn't work on him...waited too late. I am mad at Chris for his stubborness. I am going to be so sad watching Monday's show, as evidentally poor Reid is still alive, because it shows him in the preview looking at them and telling them he is as donor.

    I'm glad I didn't watch this episode. ATWT really pulled a cheap shot on us by bumping Reid off. Luke and Reid deserved their happiness. Katie and Chris could have found their's too but alas, ATWT played it this way. Too bad - and their decision has soured what could be a much better ending to this soap. I just don't understand it.

    Hi everyone! I post quite infrequently, but I always read your comments. Always a joy to read. Thank you all for many hours of wonderful reading.

    Like most of you, I am very upset, devastated, furious, angry and heartbroken about Reid's impending death next week. When I first heard the rumors about Reid's death last June, I just knew that they were true, but I didn't want to think about it.

    I am furious that the only gay couple did not get their HEA (happily ever after). LuRe have been sacrificed at the altar of Chris/Katie and Lily/Holden. I say Lily/Holden because Luke's unbearable grief is going to bring those two back together. They will see Luke's pain and his lost love and decide to give their relationship another chance. I am furious that while all the straight couples currently in love and who will rekindle their love will get their HEAs - e.g. CarJack, Dusty/Janet, John/Lucinda, Chris/Katie, Paul/Emily, Henry/Barbara, Casey/Allison, Craig/Rosanna, Lily/Holden. And of course, Bob/Kim and Tom/Margo - but the one and only gay couple will not. I can't see Luke and Noah getting back together as Luke told Noah in no uncertain terms that it is over between them. He is in love with Reid who is right for him and that Noah was not right for him. How could any Nuke fan be happy with a reunion of Luke and Noah after Luke told Noah that he is in love with Reid? So all the LuRe and Nuke fans are left unhappy and bitter that neither couple got their HEA. That's just wrong.

    Chris Goutman and Jean Passanante can spin this travesty any which way that they want, but the proof is in the pudding. They were cowardly and gutless. Giving LuRe their HEA would have been groundbreaking - to show a gay couple committed to each other, deeply in love and building a productive, altruistic life together, making the world a better place. Reid and Luke brought out the best in each other. Both men wanted to be better people for each other. What is more beautiful than that?

    What a positive and powerful image it would have been to have LuRe get their HEA for all straight and LGBT viewers to see. To envision a world where we are judged solely by the content of our characters. That we will live in a world where people are not judged by their race, gender, sexuality, religion, creed, class and culture/language. A world where love rules and hate for the other because they are different is rejected as the poison to humanity that it is.

    For those of you who have expressed homophobic comments about Reid, Luke and Noah, shame on you. If you hated the three characters because they were annoying and unlikable, that wouldn't bother me, but to hate them because they are gay is morally reprehensible. Whatever your views on homosexuality, all human beings have the right to dignity and respect and deserve to be treated with respect.

    I will never forgive CG and JP for this travesty. I will not watch OLTL because JP is now part of their writing team. Their heterosexism have left a bad taste in my mouth.

    I don't want tragedy as ATWT comes to a close. There is absolutely no reason to kill off a beloved character to achieve drama or to use as a symbol for grieving the cancellation of the show as CG has been quoted as saying. As fan for 34 years, I wanted to see all the couples, straight and gay, in love get their HEAs.

    I am going to miss ATWT so much. I started watching ATWT when I was in school and I would race home to watch it. I spent my summers watching it. I am going to miss all the characters with whom I fell in love, whose stories were gripping and riveting. So many years of great acting and writing. It's sad to see ATWT dim its light as a shadow of its former self, but in spite of CG's buffoonery, I will watch ATWT until the very end, giving my favorite soap and its cast and crew the respect that it deserves.
