OK, so as well all know, Lucas usually wears blue when he’s calm, and red when he’s nervous or turning into Texas!Lucas.
If you compare the R*cas and Lucaya dates you can easily see why Lucaya’s date was written incorrectly or was meant to be changed by Lucas’ return to Topanga’s after Maya dumped smoothie on him.
On R*cas’ date in GM the New World, on their date, Lucas was wearing his typical blue, meaning he wasn’t anxious or in one of his Texas moods, he is normal. As we all know, R*cas failed at being a couple, and their date was a flop. But, by the Lucas’ shirt theory, you can conclude that Lucas was being his normal self, that he wasn’t upset and was acting naturally. The awkwardness is the basis for R*cas’ relationship. This is how R*cas was intended to act, and they were acting this way because they make a terrible couple, and not because of some side influence on their individual emotions.
But, with the Lucaya date, Lucas was wearing red, signifying that he was upset or worried about something. Which makes sense, considering what just happened in Texas. So, the awkwardness is coming from Lucas just feeling unsettled and nervous about an outside event. Their date was effected by individual emotions and side influence, which is Riley outing Maya’s feelings. Then, Lucas returns to Topanga’s after changing, and he is in a blue shirt, and this is where Lucaya’s usual banter comes back.
Basically what I’m saying is that R*cas’ date was naturally awkward, and Lucaya’s date was awkward due to emotions separate from the date, and outside pressure.
