There were some major developments in this episode of Friday Night Lights, especially among the younger set. And if you think life is just peachy keen for kids in high school, they aren't the ones attending East Dillon High. If you prefer the lighter, sweeter side of Friday Night Lights, this wasn't your night. Sadness was at every turn, none moreso that Becky and Vince and their very tough decisions.
When Becky told Luke last week that she was having a baby, his reaction just spelled trouble. Who would have thought that his being honest with his parents would be a bad thing? Luke strives to be a good person, but he is clearly conflicted. He's lying about taking pain medication and he had unprotected sex with a girl he barely knew. There is something disingenuous about him going to church and letting his parents guide him to live a righteous life, when he's sinning right and left. Yes, he's young, but he should know better.
