    I have the feeling that LD (I can't for the life of me remember the actress' name) left the show quickly and with little warning - which was why the leaukimia sub-plot was created. I think that originally the "Just Friends" plot in which Heather tried to win Wheels over was meant to go to LD - there had been some build up between the two eg - they went to the Junior High graduation dance together and the conversation between Lucy and LD in "Breaking Up Is Hard To Do" implied that she liked him (when they film Wheels through the video camera as he walks past). Further evidence is that the leukimia sub-plot did seem rather rushed, and in the opening credits there is a scene in which LD scores a goal which wasn't in any episodes (that I can remember).

    What do you all think?

    I also thought that maybe they were leading up to something between LD and Wheels, but I'm not sure if that plot would have worked with LD.

    I don't know about that. Every girl liked Wheels. And pandyonetwo (on degrassi.tv) can tell you why.

    I always thought LD was overshadowed a bit by Lucy and the twins.
