… Teddy (a.k.a. the shirtless Adonis on the far right). My source asked me not to spoil the big reveal until after the show’s third-season premiere on Sept. 13—hence the speculative item I ran last month— but then Trevor Donovan (all but) let the cat out of the bag yesterday when he tweeted the following:

“I read all your tweets and know you are all curious about the ‘gay’ character this season. Let me say, gay or straight, relationships are relationships. Everyone goes through the same kind of troubles and joys. A gay storyline will have an added issue of dealing with judgment from others. Acceptance, by family, friends, society, and self is just one of the concerns the character will be going through. It is a part of life, and it should be portrayed. I was told, and am confident, [that] the storyline will be written very well and the change in the character will be organic, NOT overnight. It’s going to be a great season 3. I look forward to chatting with you all as we progress.”

Gotta love/hate Twitter! (BTW, even though Donovan didn’t actually come out and say Teddy is gay, I can confirm that he is. I can also confirm that the name of the actor playing his first boyfriend can be found here.)

Thoughts? Surprised? Did you peg Teddy as the closet case all along? Hit the comments!
