"Luke's Back" is the twelfth episode in Season 1 of Bunk'd. It aired on February 12, 2016. This episode scored 1.88 million viewers.


Luke reunites with his siblings to get some summer school help from Ravi. Meanwhile, a turf war erupts between Camp Kikiwaka and Camp Champion, the rival camp across the lake.


The older brother on the original Disney Channel show Jessie, Luke (Cameron Boyce) has been away at summer school and shows up under the pretense of needing Ravi to help him with his school work. His introduction to the show is, unsurprisingly, playing a prank on Ravi, waking him up with the shaving cream and feather trick he calls Sleeping Santa (Ravi calls it “not funny the first ten times.”) This also impresses Jorge. After this prank, Luke reunites with his sisters.

Not long after Luke’s arrival, Ravi finds himself in a confrontation with the guys from Camp Champion and is determined to not let his big brother fight his battles for him. So determined he challenges Camp Champion ringleader Eric to an archery battle. The winner gets the Spot, the popular hangout place where Emma and Xander like to go “to chat.”

Luke, meanwhile, creates some trouble for Emma by tickling her just the right way so she’ll snort in front of Xander. Xander tries to make up for Emma’s embarrassment by sharing that he has a fake little toe of all things but both find it difficult not to bust on each other for their imperfections. The other small storyline of the episode is a strange and unexpected rivalry Lou and Hazel have over Eric, who they both claimed to have dated on July 4.

Their rivalry ends up hurting Kikiwaka – or as Eric likes to call them Wikiwaka – during the big archery battle, but Ravi and Luke’s newfound partnership (Luke finds it a lot easier to respect Ravi when his shirt isn’t tucked into his shorts) ends up being a secret weapon in the battle for Spot supremacy.
