Damn. They did it. They actually went through with it.
Kudos, ATWT. One small step for Van Hansis and Jake Silbermann, one Star Jones-sized step for network television!
EDIT: I just have to reinforce Hansis' closing statement, because he's so right: if you're going to do a gay storyline, just do it. Don't dumb it down, don't be condescending, and don't kowtow to conservative throwbacks who find it "inappropriate". Just make a proper go of it. And I think - regardless of the somewhat-cliche twists the plot's taken (this is, after all, a soap opera) - that that's exactly what's happening.
