This is what confuses me. It seems like the hockey team is being portrayed as extremely antagonistic, but, while obviously not completely innocent, it isn't like they started these fights out of nowhere...like Jake did over the recycling.

I can't say I like Luke, but I really want to resist the idea that we are supposed to hate him and the ice hounds. Underdeveloping characters to make them villains is not a way to make the show compelling (contrast with Becky Baker, who takes a stance that the show and viewers oppose but is also a complex character with redeeming qualities)

Luke doesn't even know how to antagonize. He doesn't even put effort into his insults! Yeah, he provokes people (I guess) but it's their fault for reacting in violent ways. If everyone simply ignored Luke's laughable attempts at insults, he'd shut up and go back to guzzling beer and babbling nonsense about his commitment to Jesus.

I love how Luke is able to troll effortlessly. He says or does one thing and people fly in a fit of rage. Thumbs up to you Mr. Baker

I think it's the other way around.

And yeah, Luke will be around. Someone needs to be the resident ass. Next season will come the redemption- however much we see with him.

I hope we get to see more of him. He seems to follow the rules of his religion yet has no problem vandalizing and locking people in closets/stealing phones. I hope they explore that more.

Oh yeah. I knew that. UNLESS LUKE THROWS THE FIRST PUNCH.

Whatever happened to his rivalry with Jake over recycling?

Why would Degrassi just drop one of their most powerful, moving storylines? I just don't understand the writers anymore.

Maybe Luke can just be the character that fights everyone (first Jake, now Connor), but I think he'll have to face Owen in mortal combat to win that role.

Owen's going to end up graduating though, so Luke will get that by default.

I like his new hairstyle. It is very 90s teen soap opera.

Another acting role for Luke and he is again playing not such a nice fellow (and the captain of the hockey team as well), this time in the movie Blackbird, which opens on Friday in Canada.

It's always kind of amusing how they end up playing characters similar to their Degrassi roles.

Blackbird sounds really interesting! Here's the movie trailer:
