I believe the other Lincoln is hopelessly in love with Olivia, this Lincoln didn't seem interested to me even the first time he met her (last season).
I didn't see any vibe between this Lincoln and our Olivia, whereas I agree, the other Lincoln is hopelessly in love with Altlivia and she will never return his affections to the degree he desires.
Perhaps that's the parallel - Blue Lincoln was hopelessly in love with his partner but knew he would never return his affections to the same degree. It didn't need to be that he was lusting after him, it might have been the bond of the friendship that was more than he had with anyone else (I didn't pick up on any hoyay vibe either, but his reaction was very similar to Olivia's reaction to John Scott's death).
I don't see them putting Blue Lincoln and Olivia together. He doesn't strike me as remotely interested in her, whereas even when Peter was in his grumpy "sweetheart' stage, trying not to get sucked in to Olivia's crazy world, he was nonetheless IMO clearly in to her.
Red Lincoln is pretty much screwed. I don't see Altlivia ever really seeing what she means to him. Had she died, he'd have been stuck with the baby because he couldn't not keep that promise (she made no mention of her mother who is reasonably young and would've been perfectly capable of raising the baby). Blue Lincoln will probably keep in contact with his partner's family, but I doubt he'll be too tied up in their lives.
ETA It'll be interesting to see who Altlivia is with now that Peter doesn't exist.
