Queer women continue to be mostly background noise on TV this year, Valerie Anne has some thoughts about that final episode of Black Sails, Gina Rodriguez is Carmen Sandiego, and that episode of Survivor.
Minnick and Arizona are about to be sitting in a tree, k-i-s-s-i-n-g; Pippy and TMI are full on smooching in an elevator; and Annalise Keating is taking her rightful place on the Throne of Slytherin once more.
Luisa gets a storyline with Rogelio, Pippy and TMI go dancing, Maggie hosts Sapphic Shabbat, and Stef wonders what Betty and Tara are getting up to.
Luisa and Rose take 153 trips around the Great Barrier Reef, Arizona’s got a new love interest, Maggie’s got a real girlfriend, Rosewood keeps the slow reconciliation burn going, and more queer TV from the week!
Eve and Annalise are the best (and the most heartbreaking), Younger is back and gayer than ever, Arizona returns to Grey’s with a smile, Rosewood is actually doing something with its queer couple this season, two new lesbians on ABC sitcoms, and more queer TV!
Sappho protect us.
Plus Callie and Arizona have a conversation on Grey’s Anatomy, and someone who isn’t a lesbian gets killed on Younger.
The good, the bad, the ugly, and the revolutionarily boring queer TV storylines of the year.
Couple-ish and ‘Til Lease Do Us Part premiered this week, Fresh Off the Boat got a little gay, Pippy and TMI finally smooched on Rosewood, and one of our queer chefs didn’t make the cut on Top Chef.
Amazon releases Transparent early, Lucy Lawless is lesbian-ing again, Carmilla bids adieu to season zero, and Pippy and TMI almost break up on Rosewood.
Blindspot and Code Black reveal that two of their characters are gay, The Vampire Diaries has introduced the half-witch/half-vampire lesbian couple, and Jane the Virgin is still the best damn thing on TV.
In sadder news: Famke Janssen is out of town on How to Get Away With Murder and Riese really likes Scream Queens.
ABC Family pulls the plug on Chasing Life, Callie and Arizona start dating other people, Carmilla ends with a swoon and a resurrection, and what the hell Lost Girl?
If you’re counting, here are four more new lesbian and bisexual women on your TV. How long they’ll stick around is anyone’s guess!
