I’d like to point out: “The CW has its first LGBT lead character of the season.” This could quite possibly signal more LGBT lead character reveals this season.
Also, thank you Jason Rothenberg for pointing out that a character’s sexuality is not the most important thing about them, much like real life. In these shows, fights for their own survival are of much greater consequence. As it should be.
And that’s literally all it takes to introduce a bisexual lead character to a non-LGBT-centric show. It in no way changes the focus of the show. It in no way makes it a “gay thing.” It’s still the same show. They’re still the same character.
