I am hopelessly addicted to 90210 this season, and I'm pretty sure it's Trevor Donovan's fault. Or at least that of Teddy Montgomery, the character Donovan plays.
Without OLTL's Kish and ATWT's Luke, Reid and Noah, there has been a giant hole where gay storylines on soaps used to be. AMC's Bianca is a supporting player, Y&R's Rafe even more so; and because they don't have any significant story of their own, they just can't fill that void. But 90210's Teddy, and his slow progression to accepting that he's gay or bi, just might do the trick.
