Eric Sheffer Stevens
In an interview with After Elton, As the World Turns’ Jake Silbermann discusses having his character Noah go blind, how he’ll react when he finds out about Luke (Van Hansis) and Reid (Eric Sheffer Stevens) and how Nuke’s storyline should wrap up when the show goes off the air this fall.
AE: How would you like to see things come to a close? At the end of the show, the last day, where do you want Noah to be?
JS: As an actor there are so many different avenues that I would love to go with this character, but I’d really like to see first and foremost an ending that satisfies the fans. The fans have been through this and I want them to be happy. I want them to know that they have some kind of closure to these characters and I think a number of fans have expressed to me that they would like to see Luke and Noah together in the end.
AE: What is about Luke that appeals to Reid? Why is he drawn to him?
ESS: There’s something very fresh about him. I don’t know if I can articulate it, but it’s just one of those attractions. Reid doesn’t know why because it goes against what he thinks he would want in a partner. It doesn’t add up because he definitely dislikes him initially so I think he hates himself for the attraction, but he gives into it more and more.

Last week Reid (Eric Sheffer Stevens) took Luke (Van Hansis) by surprise when he kissed him. This week he tells Luke it won’t happen again, unless Luke wants it. What is poor Luke to do? Watch this week’s As the World Turns promo after the jump.
This week in daytime,
I wondered if All My Children's Zach (Thorsten Kaye) and Kendall (Alicia Minshew) fans were steaming mad about their couple's onscreen reunion, of sorts. Not being a Zendall fan myself I expect it had to be more than a little bittersweet to see a favorite couple return, only to dissolve before our eyes like a hairball in a drain pipe attacked by Draino. My sympathies are with you Zendall fans.
Next week on As the World Turns, Bob (Don Hastings) and Kim (Kathryn Hays) reach a milestone anniversary, Reid (Eric Sheffer Stevens) is hit with a lawsuit, Carly (Maura West) is tempted by the demon bottle and Jack (Michael Park) finds Dusty (Grayson McCouch) knocked out cold.
