Which of These 3 Actors Will Play 90210‘s Gay

I’m not sure why the gay Internet is losing it today after the supposed revelation of which 90210 character is coming out this season. We’ve known who it was for at least two weeks. (Spoilers ahead.)

Teddy Montgomery, the hot blonde surfer type played by Trevor Donovan, will come out this season, and a romance will emerge with a character played by Kyle Riabko, the lead in Spring Awakening. So says Zap2It in an “exclusive,” but AfterElton nailed things down late last month (also in an “exclusive”).

They figured it out by reading the script and picking up on clues on who this pseudonym-ed “Caleb” character was supposed to be. Caleb is Teddy, we now learn.

IAN
You know what’s funny about these gutters? They look pretty good from the ground. You can’t see that they’re really full of crap.

CALEB
(whatever)
Yeah, no kidding.

IAN
The thing is, if you don’t get up here, get your hands dirty and figure out what is really going on, when the first big storm comes along, the whole roof could cave in on you.

CALEB
What the hell are you talking about?

Ian eyes Caleb for a BEAT. He’s talking about Caleb.

IAN
What do you think?

Caleb looks away, purposely not picking up on this.

CALEB
Can we just do this? The sooner we finish this, the sooner I’m done with you.

IAN
(not letting it go)
Not really. I mean you’re still going to have to see my in school. And every time you do, you’re going to remember what happened.

CALEB
(angrily)
Shut up.

IAN
Or what? Are you going to hit me again? You can punch me. You can call me a fag, but you’re gonna have to face it. You can’t make it disappear.

Caleb looks like he wants to punch him again. A beat.

CALEB
You don’t know what you’re talking about.

IAN
Or maybe I do.

Ian then proceeds to nearly fall off the roof, but Caleb saves him and they proceed to bond. At least until a short time later.

CALEB
Look Ian, I shouldn’t have hit you. At the Bachelor Auction. I’m sorry.

IAN
It’s okay. I mean… I get what you’re going through. Cause I went through it too.
(sincerely) And, if you ever need to talk…

Caleb stiffens, immediately uncomfortable with Ian again.

CALEB
Talk about what?

Which means Silver has been dating a homo. Actually, that’s a storyline plenty of female viewers will soon learn they can relate to.
