Huge‘s Cool Kids Punk Gay Alistair Into Kissing Another Guy So They Can All Laugh At Him

On Monday night’s Huge, we’re shown Alistair (played by Harvey Guillen) understands he’s the token not-straight kid at camp when he’s quizzed about his sexuality by Piznarski. But it’s all part of a practical Truth Or Dare joke played by the cool kids just so they can see the two guys kiss. And it’s a betrayal of Alistair by his new straight jock Trent friend betrays him! (Spoilers ahead.)

In the first clip you’ll see the lead up and execution of the prank — which Trent (played by Stefan Van Ray), who befriend Alistair last week, has a part in. So too does Alistair’s twin sister Chloe, except she still hasn’t told anybody that they’re related because she’s so embarrassed by him. She’s the one crying at the end of the scene. (In the cool kids’ game of T&D, Chloe and Amber kiss, so there’s the faux-lesbian aspect to all this too.)

And then everybody starts feeling bad about it. Which they should! ‘Cause that was mean! Except the turmoil it’s caused doesn’t last beyond the episode, as we see everything smoothed over by an apology from Trent (which the camera doesn’t show) and a buddy-buddy chat with Ian (played by Ari Stidham) at the end. So how come Alistair was so easily able to forgive Trent for goofin’ him in front of his friends?

Duh. Because Alistair is in love with him.
