Gays of Our Lives: Taking The Fall


Casualty:   As Scott lies in critical condition after his fall, Ethan is assigned to care for him.   And what happens next will change both their lives.  Meanwhile, Mama Ellison shows up at the hospital and demands to know why both of her sons are in the hospital.  Mickey is forced to come out to his mother.  But he insists he is in love with Jez and wants to make a go for their relationship.  So why does he later tell Jez that it’s over?

Hollyoaks:  Scott returns to work, but realizes he’s gone back too soon and is unable to handle the stress.  He calls his mother Maggie, who makes it clear she still wants nothing to do with him.  Scott then learns that his long lost brother Damon has a bar and goes there to meet him.  Scott chats up his brother and they hit off.  Damon gives Scott his number, as a friend, and tells him to call if he ever wants to talk.  Hmm…..

Neighbours:  As Aaron goes to work to promote his new business, his relationship with David takes a turn.  Leo, David and Aaron go out together and Leo, tired of David and Aaron not dealing with their feelings for each other, forces the twosome to admit that they want to be together.  Thanks to Leo’s efforts, David and Aaron finally decide to give a relationship a chance.  But just as it looks like they’ll be together, a new face in town creates a new roadblock.   Sigh!

The Haves and The Have Nots: Veronica confronts Justin and threatens to destroy his life if he doesn’t stay away from Jeffery.  Meanwhile Jeffery warns Jim to leave a recovering Wyatt alone.  Plus David wants Jeffery to explain about his role in Quincy’s death.  That’s gonna take awhile.


Casualty: Jez is wracked with guilt.

Emmerdale:  Robert suffers a terrible accident.

Holby City:   Dom snoops into Lofty’s private life and is shocked by what he finds.

Hollyoaks:   Harry gets a disturbing letter.

I watch a lot of television, probably too much. But can you really watch too much TV? I've yet to find out. Anyway, I especially love TV when they give us positive portrayals of gays, something that has gotten better but we're still fighting for. I've written about gays in television for many years first at the much missed After Elton, then New Now Next and now at TV Source. It's kind of a passion of mine and I look forward to sharing it with you.
