The Gay Scene everyone is talking about from How To Get Away with Murder

Okay, it's another post about HTGAWM, but I have to talk about that gay scene! Do you see it? How did ABC get a away with that?

If you did see it, I got it here for you

Creator Peter Nowalk explains to E! News:
And you can expect a lot more same-sex sex and same-sex romance as the series continues because, as Nowalk puts it, "It's part of life." "I knew I wanted to push the envelope, especially with the gay sex," Nowalk explained to me. "And to me, writing the gay characterization and writing some real gay sex into a network show is to right the wrong of all of the straight sex that you see on TV. Because I didn't see that growing up, and I feel like the more people get used to two men kissing, the less weird it will be for people. I just feel like it's a lack of vision that you don't see it on TV, but ABC has never had a note about any of the weird stuff in the show, so I'm gonna keep it going."

Nowalk reveals that Connor (Jack Falahee), the gay character, is definitely going to have a romance in the first season, right off the bat, starting with the second episode. It was in important to show a gay person as a full-fledged character."
Interesting, I can't wait to see more!

I watched HTGAWM and here's the interesting thing...I didn't think it was pushing any envelopes. I wasn't shocked or surprised by the scene. Ok wait...I lie. I was surprised only because I didn't realize the character was gay. I thought he was a straight guy trying to find out the dirt. How out of touch am I?
