Nothing relevant to the storyline involves Will coming out of the closet except scoring points in diversity. And this. "Oh look the kid we've had called a fag by his dad in season one REALLY IS GAY" This. Doing a rewatch of season one right now and Steve is a grade A asshole at times but he also really seemed in love with Nancy even though he didn't really understand his feelings. I do think Nancy and Jonathan were a genuine couple but I think he realistically understood that the distance and college was killing the relationship. I hate the dope thing this season. First of all, we don't know what might be relevant to the storyline. Second, it's not all about the plot. It's also about characterization. As has been discussed by other posters, the possibility of Will being gay has been part of his character from the jump. Seeing how that part of his character progresses is as important to the creators as any of the various heterosexual pairings and triangles there have been. I'm assuming that the writers aren't having a scoreboard for "points in diversity" in the way that you're saying. But even if they were, so what? It's their creation. They can make it as diverse or non-diverse as they want. 2 hours ago, MamaGee said: What annoys me is they already have a gay character. Imagine if someone said, "What annoys me is they already have a heterosexual character" or "What annoys me is they already have a black character." 11 34 Link to comment
