I'm also glad it's going to be two episodes, not one. I don't want them to rush anything and I was afraid they would be. Especially since an episode is only about 23 minutes long (without the commercial break).
I wonder if anyone will walk in on them. I'm not sure they will have a set for Lucas' room, but since they will be walking around in the living room in their underwear, a scene where someone walks in on an intimate moment could still happen. I don't think it would be Janine. Maybe her boyfriend Jack. Or maybe Janine's best friend Barbara who also lives there.
At least Barbara has some experience in this field. She has a bisexual son (Morris) and a daughter (Charlie) who went through a bi-curious phase. ;D Charlie is still on the show. Morris is in jail right now after he tried to kill Ludo a couple of years ago.
Morris has been played by three actors (the first one was gay, the second one came out as bi after he had left the show and the last one is - as far as I know - straight). This pic is from the last Morris (left):
* There's going to be an accident and someone needs CPR.
* Two characters decide to end their relationship.
* There's a marriage proposal.
* One troublemaker tries to play matchmaker for two people who are unaware of this.
We don't know who these spoilers are about. I doubt the second and third are about Lucas, but I think there's a chance the first and last could be about Lucas. Although, if the first one is about Lucas and Dex it would maybe be a little too much like Luke/Kevin on ATWT. I could see Nina or Sair trying to play matchmaker for Lucas and Dex. But like I said, maybe these aren't even about Lucas.
New Spoilers sound great. Can't believe how attached I got to the character in such a short time. Lucas is going to ruffle some feathers for sure. Hope Dex and Nina aren't a full on couple before Dex get's a hankering for Lucas. I'd hate to see Nina and Lucas' relationship be too damaged ( though a little drama and angst is good!)

I'm happy to do it.
I also love the new spoilers. Of course we don't know if Dex and Lucas will ever have something, but we'll see. I'm conflicted. I want Dexas to happen, but at the same time I love the chemistry between Nina and Dex.
You know, you're right. I was totally assuming and there's no reason why Dex has to hook up with Lucas.
I kinda thought that's what folks have been hinting at but I also really love Dex and Nina so I'd be happy to see Lucas become a regular character who maybe finds a boyfriend who's already out or even just dates for a while (which I guess he's kinda doing aleady)
Poor Janine. I would be very confused too if my son would be kissing another boy at the breakfast table and I didn't have a clue before about him being gay. I'm pretty sure Janine won't give Lucas a hard time about it, but I can imagine she's going to question her relationship with him and ask herself (and him maybe?) why he never felt the need to tell her before.
We'll see if Dexas happens. I really like Dex and Nina together as well, so.... (But deep down I like the idea of Dex being gay )

I love it that they're doing something original with Lucas. This is not your typical troubled gay teen coming out story. I like that. Poor Janine yeah. But I'm so looking forward to her shocked expression. I have a feeling that scene will be used as a cliffhanger.
In a perfect triangle you should be able to root for all possible options. That's what we have here so that's only a good thing IMO. Like you, Amber, I really like the idea of Dex being gay/bi, but I won't be heartbroken if it's not going to happen.
Personally I would be very disappointed if Dex dosn't turn out to be Lucas love interest. I think they have good chemistry, plus Dex (like Lucas) has a family in the show and I think this is an important factor for the longevity of the s/l

They could always bring back a character from another family of course if Dexas doesn't work out.
But we'll just have to wait and see. But I do have a good feeling about Dex being the one for Lucas. They're setting up this triangle which makes me believe that the outcome will be Dexas which will cause conflict between Lucas and Nina.
Also right now there are only three people in that age group (Nina, Dex, Lucas). Noud who left Meerdijk with his girlfriend Vicky will return to the show in season 20. Vicky is gone for good. This would mean there are three guys and only one girl in that age group*. I don't think Noud will be gay (I think he might be the one a bit homophobic). This would leave Dex for Lucas. And then Noud and Nina could be a couple (I do think they have chemistry). I think it could be soapy if Dex and Lucas are a couple the moment Noud, who always thought like everybody else that Dex was straight, comes back.
* Not counting the group of 4 friends who are on recurring and are only supporting the storylines of Nina, Dex and Noud (and I'm sure Lucas now too).
*sigh* It's fun to speculate, but it does make me miss the show more. Only three weeks to go!

So it looks like we'll get at least 3 days of Lucas during the first week of the season. Although I think Wednesday could be a Dex/Nina-only day. But I think it's possible Lucas will pop up during Tuesday and Thursday's episodes as well. I'm glad Lucas will be in the seasone premiere.
I wonder if Lucas and Dex are suppose to be the long run. And then to have them have a Lucas, Nina, and Dex complicated triangle to start off with? What doesn't say drama like the fact that you and your brother are interested in the same guy and he likes you both too.

Latest rumor (take it with a grain of salt). According to someone on a GTST blog (somebody in the comments) Ferry, Emiel and Marly will go to Disneyland in Paris this week to do a location shoot. Now I have my doubts about the reliability of this rumor, but it would be fun if it's true. And Ferry twittered today that he's going to have a busy week...
