The conflict between Eli Goldsworthy and Luke Baker began in season 12, when Luke began harassing Eli and his acting crew about his play being about two gay lovers. The tension came to a head when Luke, along with a few of the Ice Hounds, crashed Clare's surprise birthday party at Fiona Coyne's loft and started an all out brawl.
In Got Your Money (2), Luke makes fun of Eli's play, "Romeo and Jules", a re-telling of "Romeo and Juliet" with two gay teen males as the romantic leads. During a rehearsal outside with some of the cast, Luke and his friends approach Eli, and Luke tells him to "keep the gay stuff private." Later at the dance, it is shown that Luke and other members of the hockey team had vandalized posters advertising the play.
