After his sister Meggan and his father Frederick come to Twin Peaks, Lukas follows his family. He has a few secrets that he is keeping.

At the hospital gala, it was revealed that Lukas is dating Craig and he is the man that Donovan was in love with in Europe!

2016
Lukas was pressed by Craig to open up about his romance with Donovan in Europe. Lukas kept mum but finally revealed that they broke up because Lukas wasn't out to Frederick yet. Meggan encouraged her brother to come out, but Lukas insisted Frederick wouldn't be okay with it. Craig, meanwhile, grew more and more frustrated with Lukas for not coming out. Lukas and Donovan reconnected unaware that Craig was starting to lean on Donovan as well. Lukas leaned on Meggan as he struggled with having feelings for both Craig and Donovan. Meggan told her brother to come out to Frederick, but Lukas refused. On the night of the summer storm, Lukas and Donovan were trapped in an elevator together and they shared a kiss. When Craig discovered that they were together, he wasn't pleased. He told Lukas that he had to make a choice between the men; Lukas admitted that he had feelings for both. On New Year's Eve, Craig was tired of Lukas and kissed Donovan, unaware Lukas saw them.

2017
Lukas continued to lean on Andy and Meggan as Donovan and Craig waited for him to make up his mind about whom he'd like to be with. Lukas convinced Andy to do something for Reese, which is how Andy's benefit gala happened. Lukas admitted to both Craig and Donovan that he had feelings for both of them. They both encouraged him to come out to Frederick, because it would make everything easier for him. Lukas, still worried about how Frederick would react, refused. Upset that he was leading Craig and Donovan on, Lukas told Andy he was leaving town. Andy then revealed to Craig and Donovan that Lukas was gone. In Santa Barbara, Lukas surprised Craig and Donovan by revealing his presence. He explained to them that he often comes to his childhood home when he needs time away to think about get away from everything. Craig encouraged Lukas to come out to Frederick, but he said he wasn't ready. Donovan took Lukas' side, which meant a lot to him. Lukas, soon, reappeared in Twin Peaks and announced that he was ready to come out to Frederick. Frederick lashed out at his son for his sexuality and threatened to disinherit him. Lukas was livid with his father for his actions. Lukas confronted him on the night Frederick was shot. He was later questioned by the police. Andy, Donovan and Craig wondered why Lukas was acting so odd. On New Year's Eve, Lukas told Donovan that he loved him and wanted him back.

2018
Lukas was upset when Frederick was murdered on New Year's Eve. He and Meggan banded together and he was touched when Daisy showed support at the memorial service. Meanwhile, Lukas and Donovan reunited and made love. They professed their love for one another, even though Donovan was keeping a secret from him. Chris was arrested for Frederick's murder, and Lukas had a strange reaction to the news. Shortly after, however, Chris proved his innocence and Simona Lopez got a court order to search the Richardson mansion. They found Lukas' gloves in the trash; they had gun residue on them. Simona Lopez also noted that the bullets from the family gun were the same bullets that were used to shoot Frederick last November. During the ice storm, Lukas was arrested for killing Frederick. Donovan and Meggan vowed to prove his innocence. During his trial, Lukas was shocked when Donovan admitted to sleeping with Craig on the night of Frederick's shooting. Lukas told Donovan that he suspected he and Craig were lovers, but to find out in the way he did was humiliating to him. Lukas, then, took the stand, and he pleaded his innocence. However, the damage was done: he was found guilty and sentenced to jail. He told his family to be okay. In jail, three prisoners approached him and threatened him. Will Coutts seemingly saved Lukas and they became jail friends. In jail, Lukas continued to be bullied by Tony. Will tried to save him, but he warned Lukas that eventually Tony would come after him if he didn't watch out. Shortly after, Lukas found himself beaten badly by Tony. Meggan and Donovan visited him and asked him who hurt him, but Lukas refused to tell because he didn't want things to be worse. Donovan and Lukas seemingly shared a close moment. Shortly after, Tony cornered Lukas again and was about to rape him, when two guards burst in and saved Lukas. They revealed that Jemma had killed Frederick and that he was going to be released. Following his release from jail, he reunited with Meggan, but struggled to warm up to Daisy as he didn't think that Jemma should have let him go to jail. Donovan, meanwhile, believed that he and Lukas would reunite but Lukas surprised him by telling him that they weren't going to be together again because Lukas hated how the truth about Donovan and Craig being lovers came out. He couldn't get over the embarrassment that he felt when the truth came out on the witness stand. Donovan pleaded with Lukas, but Lukas stood his ground. Shortly after, he saw Craig kiss Donovan and he realized that he had to move on. Lukas kissed Andy a couple of times and on New Years Eve, they ended up in bed.

2019
Lukas woke up with Andy in his bed in the New Year and he assumed that they would be together, only Andy told him otherwise because he was still getting over Reese's death. Craig, however, saw the two together and also assumed that they were now a couple, which he conveyed to Donovan. Andy, soon after, arranged for a romantic dinner between Lukas and Donovan in hopes of getting them back together; it worked, they reunited and kissed! They told Craig the update and he was furious, but Donovan and Lukas relished in reuniting. Lukas, meanwhile, was hired by Vinny to be Daisy's campaign manager. He was skeptical of taking the job but agreed. Daisy, at first, didn't love all of his ideas, but she warmed to them, especially after she did seemingly well at the first debate. Lukas, however, noticed that Daisy was acting oddly and then saw her and Tyler making love, which he struggled to get out of his head. Lukas and Donovan relished in being reunited. Lukas continued to help Daisy try to get elected, despite knowing of her affair with Tyler. On the day of the election, a picture of Daisy and Tyler kissing was leaked to the Twin Peaks Sun - Lukas was horrified and Daisy lost the election as a result. Daisy asked Lukas if he was responsible, but he said no. She believed him. Lukas, meanwhile, was stunned to learn of Craig's HIV diagnosis. He and Donovan supported their friend, who quickly felt the effects of treatment. Lukas thought it was odd that Craig became sick so quickly after getting the diagnosis and he blamed Victoria for it, which upset Donovan because he didn't believe his sister would do anything that would cause Craig harm. Lukas, also, started to remember his times with Craig and wondered if he has feelings for him again. Donovan wondered the same thing but kept it to himself. Lukas was then shocked to learn that Victoria used to have multiple personalities.

2020
Lukas supported Craig in the wake of him learning that he was misdiagnosed with HIV. Lukas wanted Victoria to pay for what she had done, which clashed with Donovan's belief that Victoria was innocent. The couple squabbled about it until the truth about Victoria's alter egos was revealed. Lukas still wanted Victoria to pay for what she had done but he and Donovan started to grow closer again. Lukas also remained close with Craig and Andy. Lukas and Craig grew closer as Lukas was upset that Victoria was on her way home. In his mind, he wanted her to pay for her actions while Brandy was in control of her. Craig encouraged him to support Donovan. They came close to sharing a kiss, which caused Lukas to be late for a romantic night with Donovan. When Lukas arrived, Donovan proposed! Startled, Lukas said no, which crushed Donovan. Craig told Lukas not to be a fool and lose a good man, so Lukas arranged a surprise for Donovan. With Nicholas' help, Donovan arrived in the park to find a hot air balloon. He went for the ride with Lukas, who admitted that he freaked out at the proposal. Lukas, then, proposed to Donovan, who accepted. Craig was feeling jealous at their engagement. Lukas continued to worry about Victoria returning, and when she did he was out of joint when Donovan asked her to stand up for him. Before the wedding, Lukas kissed Craig passionately. Craig watched uneasily as Lukas and Donovan got married. Immediately after, Robertson Enterprises launched Gravity, which was a huge hit. Dominick suggested some of the guests hit the slopes before the wedding reception, so Lukas and Craig went skiing. While on the mountain, an avalanche struck! Lukas, Craig, Vinny & Daisy were all presumed dead! In reality, Lukas had pulled Craig into a cave that he saw on the side of the mountain. In the cave, Craig had a high fever. In order to break the fever, Lukas crawled into bed with Craig, who kissed Lukas again. They ended up making love. The following day, Craig had no memory of having sex but Lukas was able to shoot a flare and they were saved.

2021
Lukas was discharged from the hospital following behind saved from the cave on the mountain side from the avalanche. He was worried that Craig might get his memory back and then realize that they had sex in the cave. Donovan and Lukas left for their honeymoon. When they got back, Lukas was unnerved to learn that Craig was feeling raw like he had bottomed recently. Donovan and Lukas then agreed to adopt a child. Eva threw them a party and at the party, Simona arrested Lukas on rape charges, as Craig's memory returned! Donovan bailed Lukas out, and Lukas confronted Craig, who told him that he didn't consent to the sex. Lukas reminded him of all the flirting they had done the previous fall but Craig didn't budge. Lukas then had to confess everything to Donovan, who was floored by his husband's betrayal. Meggan supported Lukas. Lukas then asked Craig what it would take to make the charges to away. Craig blurted out 10 million dollars. Lukas told Meggan that they could get the money from some of Frederick's GIC's; Meggan agreed. Lukas got the money and paid off Craig. Craig dropped the charges and left town. Lukas went to Donovan and told him it was over; Donovan struggled to forgive Lukas, however. They then got a call saying that there was child in Twin Peaks that could be adopted if they were still interested. Donovan and Lukas continued to plan for the baby that they were going to adopt. Donovan told Lukas that he was over the fact that Lukas slept with Craig and they made love. Donovan was then nervous for the fact that no adoption papers were going to be signed until after the baby was born. Lukas tried to calm him down. Then, they found out that Chantel, the woman giving up her child, was in labour. Donovan and Lukas went to the hospital and adopted a baby boy that they named Olly. They had no idea that Chantel actually gave birth to a stillborn baby but Vinny arranged a baby switch and they adopted Abbyís child, who was told her baby died. Donovan and Lukas rejoiced with Olly. Donovan, however, felt bad for Abby and Andrew and invited them over to see Olly. Abby immediately felt a connection to Olly, not realizing that it was her baby. Lukas didnít like the fact that Donovan invited Abby over as he didnít want her to get a connection to his baby. Donovan maintained that he was just trying to help. Lukas became unnerved when Abby visited again.

2022

Lukas maintained his stance with Donovan that he didn't want Abby to be around Olly in fear that she would develop an unhealthy relationship with him. He came home a few times and caught Abby there, which created friction between him and Donovan. Lukas went to Brooke and Greg, and they shared Lukas' point of view. After Albertinah was killed by the Rose Peddle killer, Lukas convinced Donovan that Abby should stay away from Olly as everyone dying was connected to Abby. Donovan agreed to tell Abby, who was devastated by their decision. Lukas and Donovan grew closer, however. Lukas suggested they hire a nanny to help out; Donovan agreed. Lukas hired Jasper Lam to help out with Olly. Lukas then supported Donovan when Eva was murdered by the killer.
