The line “if my mom were alive maybe I’d tell her about you too” makes me so sad because if his mom was alive, how much different would things be for Lukas?
Maybe his dad wouldn’t be the way he is and treat him the way he does, and Lukas wouldn’t be so scared of him? I imagine his mom would’ve reacted similarly to the way Anne did when Philip told her about Lukas, she wouldn’t care who he loved as long as he was happy. And if this was the case, maybe Lukas would be far more accepting of himself and of his love for Philip, and he wouldn’t have ever felt the need to hate himself for being who he is, to be as violently closeted as he has been. At least now it seems that he’s slowly learning to accept himself more and is actually feeling comfortable enough to be intimate with Philip because he wants to and because he can. I just hope that soon he realises that he’s able to be that guy if he wants to be.
I assume Cisco's angst in the Crossover bothered you to some degree, meaning these two idiots needed to make up already.
