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. He admitted to Meggan that he is gay but he felt like he couldn't tell Frederick in fear of his reaction. Meggan encouraged him to come out. 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!
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.
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.
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.
