Happy Good Friday, all! If you’re celebrating the day, I hope current circumstances don’t keep you from doing a little something. How are you all holding up? Everyone okay? I know a blog post about our friendly rivalry between Lucas and Nathan won’t make anything go away, but I hope it can break up the day… maybe even put a little smile on your face.

Okay, let’s be real here! Given the fact that we’ve all watched the episode “Heart of a Writer”, the name of the winner will probably come as no surprise. And I know members of a certain team will be “heartily” disappointed (ha ha!), but one never knows what future episodes will hold. And also remember it’s all in good fun. So just have a good time with it. And as you go through the list, you can excitedly or ruefully and begrudgingly agree with the leap someone took! So even though it’s not much of a match, LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLE!

WOW, SHOCKER! Lucas wins this round. Who would have thunk it. 😉 I will say this though, this Sunday’s episode looks very promising for Nathan and his followers. I guess we’ll see, won’t we?

Happy Easter, everyone! I hope the day bring you love and hope! And until then, here’s the recap for episode 7. We go pretty crazy, so have fun! This is Hooked Heartie, signing off! May your heart let your hope blossom!
