I know others have written a new ending for LURE, since the P&G writers gave them such a horrible end.

I hate the way the LURE story ended, so I wrote a new ending. The words in italics were written by ATWT writers, I just did a little cutting and rearranging to set my story. Oakdale and its citizens are owned by P&G, I'm just borrowing them for my own amusement.
Beginning September 3, 2010 episode after Chris asks Reid to take care of Katie.
"Reid, where are you going?" Like asked as he follows him into the on call room.
"I'm going to Bay City and pick up that heart. Then I'm going to bring it back and make sure it is put into Chris Hughes' chest where it belongs." As he began to walk past Luke.
"Reid, wait." Luke said grabbing Reid's arm.
"I understand that you're used to getting whatever you want, but not even you can walk into some strange hospital, grab a heart and put it in your cooler and walk away." Luke said.
"I could kiss you for wanting to do this, but you can't. There's too many risks involved." Luke explained.
"You heard what Dr. Dixon said. Some hot surgeon stole Chris's heart like it's some kind of a chess piece." Reid said frustrated.
"This is Chris's heart. I'm going to be damned if I'm going to let some arrogant, self proclaimed savior of mankind take it away." Reid responded.
"That's weird. I seem to remember another surgeon who was an arrogant, self proclaimed savior to mankind." Luke mused.
"Yeah, wonder what happened to him." Reid replied turning to leave again.
"Admit it, Reid." Luke said grabbing Reid's arm and stopping him again. "You're not angry because some surgeon is pulling rank. You're fighting because for Chris because you give a damn about him and his family."
"Okay, fine. I have to do this for Bob and Kim, even though she can't stand me, and Katie and Chris, too. He shouldn't be chief of staff, that's my job, but not because he croaks at the finish line." Reid replied.
"That would hardly be sporting." Luke replied.
"Look, don't get any ideas about me. I'm still the same selfish jerk. I spent my whole life going up against people with money and power who didn't do a damn thing to deserve it. I have. I earned the right the throw my weight around. I've got a great reason, and I'm not going to pass up the opportunity." Reid said then he turned to walk to the door. He turned back and looked at Luke. "I love you." Then paused, "there I said it." He finished as he pulled Luke in for a kiss.
Twenty minute later in Luke's car.
Luke drove down the back roads leading to Bay City as he listened to Reid argue on his cell phone.
"Yeah, no. That heart belongs to my patient. His family thinks he in going into surgery in a few hours. You can't get there hopes up and take it away on a whim…No, what the hell kind of surgeon are you?...No, I'm going to be there in ten minutes. Don't even think about giving that heart to anyone else."
"Why didn't want to let anyone know where we were going?" Luke asked as Reid slammed his phone shut.
"Because Chris will get all brave and noble, Bob will default to protocol and procedure, and Katie and Kim will chew their fingers off. I'm under enough pressure as it is." Reid said. "I shouldn't have allowed you to come along as it is."
"You need me." Luke smiled at him. "Just don't punch anyone's lights out."
"I'm not making any promises." Reid responded.
"What the hell!" Luke said as he saw the headlights of the truck speeding closer in his rearview mirror.
"Is he crazy?" Reid said as he watched the truck without slowing dart around Luke's car to pass.
"Oh god!" Luke yelled as the truck swerve into the side of his car. Luke swerved and slammed on his brakes as he heard the sound of the crash.
