Let's ignore the nail-biting twists and the jaw-dropping abs for one second because underneath all of Teen Wolf's eye-candy lies television's most progressive and inclusive LGBTQ series.
By refusing to distinguish -- or sensationalize -- gay couplings from their straight counterparts, creator Jeff Davis has accomplished one of his most important goals. "I've always thought that if you present this idealized world where young gay men and women are no different from anyone else, and it's not really questioned by the other characters, maybe life starts to imitate art and you begin to see that in the real world," he told ETonline earlier this year.
That approach paid off (big time!) in last week's episode, where Keahu Kahuanui's Danny shared a hot hook-up with Charlie Carver's Ethan, culminating in the new 'shipper name, Dethan. Kahuanui stopped by ETonline's offices to talk about his character's copulation, what's next for Dethan and reveal his multilingual abilities.
Teen Wolf airs Mondays at 10 p.m. on MTV.
