Good Trouble Boss Talks [Spoiler]'s Sexuality — Plus, Grade the Premiere!

The Fosters sisters Callie and Mariana officially made the move to L.A. with Tuesday’s debut of the spinoff Good Trouble, during which their hottie housemate probably steamed up your TV screen.

After moving into their new communal living digs, Callie hit it off with fellow resident Gael (played by Tommy Martinez), an artist and graphic designer at Mariana’s tech job. The two bonded over art… and then bonded in bed! There’s just one problem: When Callie first met Gael poolside in the middle of the night, she wasn’t aware that he was the guy Mariana’s crushing on. Still, Callie decided honesty was the best policy and confessed to her sis that she had sex with the lusciously locked fella. Mariana was shocked, but an even bigger surprise awaited the girls as the hour came to a close: the sight of Gael in his room, hooking up… with a guy! “I forgive you,” a wide-eyed Mariana declared to Callie.

Below, executive producer Joanna Johnson talks about the significance of the twist and building a different kind of TV love triangle.

In The Fosters, we talked a lot about sexuality. Obviously, at the helm of this family were the two moms, and our LGBTQ audience is really important to us. We wanted to make sure that that was an aspect going into [Good Trouble], and especially because we were taking our two straight girls into the show. We were like, “What is something that we haven’t really explored in the LGBTQ community?” Bisexuality is something we hadn’t really explored, especially on a man, because I think that people are comfortable with women being bisexual. I think they believe it, they can see it. But I think people really don’t get it in men. Across the board, I think a lot of people don’t believe you can be bisexual, and so that’s really hard on people that are bisexual, because they feel like there’s not really a place for them. Gay people think, “Oh, you’re really straight, and you’re just playing.” Or straight people think, “Oh, you’re really gay, but you just don’t want to come out.” There are just a lot of interesting issues. So we wanted to show this gorgeous, very-comfortable-in-his-sexuality guy, who is bisexual, and also explore how that’s hard for him in ways, too.
