Conflict History


Growing up in a Christian family, Luke developed a homophobic attitude. To help out his sister, Becky Baker, who was originally trying to stop the play Romeo and Jules because it was a love story about two men, Luke lured Tristan into an empty room and locked him in there, so that he would be prevented from acting in the play. However, Luke had to deal with Tristan's brother, Owen Milligan, for choosing to mess with Tristan. Tristan retained a dislike for Luke after this incident.

Season 12

In Got Your Money (2), Luke is seen outside with his teammates making crude remarks at the photos of Dave and Tristan. Luke approaches Eli telling him to keep the "gay stuff" more private, to which Eli responds no.

In Scream (2), after no one can find Tristan, Becky makes Luke swear that he didn't have anything to do with it. When she tells him that they'd have to cancel the play, he asks if that was what she wanted. Later on, he is in the hallway talking with Dallas and Owen when the niners come up. They tell Owen that he has Tristan's phone and Owen becomes concerned about his brother. When Luke tries blowing the situation off, Owen slams him into the locker wall and threatens him into confessing. It is revealed that Luke locked Tristan in a room by himself.
