^I think many of em have to keep quiet about a lot. I’m sure many actors sometimes question the stories

That was the main questionable story... a supercouple overclouded by the fac that Luke raped Laura.... She fell in love with her rapist and that was what became a supercouple... in a way that had to give so many idealist or naive women in the 80s the wrong idea... and sort of made it acceptable.

^Kind of reminds me of Sami and EJ on Days...Yes the actors have chemistry but how do you make em into a supercouple and forget that part of history pretty much.

^ Yep, and rape is the most difficult thing to continue to support when it comes to any kind of paring. If both couples happened now, I don't think the popularity would remain the same.

^No, it wouldn't. Especially with the Me Too Movement and all of that. I mean I like Luke and Laura (though I loved Tracy with Luke) just as I did enjoy Sami and EJ (and also liked Sami and Lucas). All 4 are iconic but the rape part is what makes them not be a total favorite of mine (yes I enjoyed em and will talk about them but they wouldn't be in my top). Hope that makes sense.

^ It makes sense, you can probably love the pairing but it's so difficult to really get over that part of the romance. The chemistry and the angst is so good but it's difficult. lol

That came out this week in the show: The Story of Soaps. I didn't know that she had confronted Luke after Elizabeth's rape.

^ Yep! Elizabeth rape brought everything back out because after Elizabeth rape, the truth about Luke's past finally came out and Lucky finally found out that his father raped his mother... that was one of the toughest thing he had to deal with and it made him believe everything he thought he knew was a lie. He didn't get how Laura could be with her rapist and how Luke could ever do something like that.

Obviously Laura still (20 years later) was defending it because she and Luke were married and that was a buried past she never thought she'd have to face again. Luke for weeks keep telling Laura that she needs to be honest about what happened that day and she still was in denial and forgetting the rape happened... but she met with Liz... after that meeting with Liz, she did realize how much Luke did hurt her and she finally got to call the rape for what it was! And Luke got to explain his thoughts and everything about that night.
