Is anyone out there watching DirecTV’s Kingdom? No? Anyone?
Well it might be worth a visit now that Nick Jonas‘ character has finally revealed that he’s gay in the season one finale.
It’s (reportedly) been hinted at all season — his mixed-martial artist character has previously had a freak-out upon discovering his physical therapist was gay, and froze up when he met a gay guy at the mall.
Nick also noted before the show aired that his character’s sexuality would be a major theme of the show.
So how did it happen in the show?
Well, first he gets ejected from a gay bar, and then he accepts an alley-way blowjob from a stranger.
“Byron [Balasco, Kingdom creator] told me before shooting began,” Jonas told BuzzFeed. “Everyone at Kingdom was really transparent about the character and some of the things the character would go through. And in my prep work, I wanted to be aware so I could properly tell this story.”
But just because he’s come out to Kingdom’s audience doesn’t mean any of the other characters know yet. Expect to see much more of Nick progressively coming out in season two.
