Penny Dreadful, Showtime’s new macabre series, made good on its promise of showing us some same-sex loving last night, when mysterious rogue (and probable werewolf) Ethan Chandler (Josh Hartnett) hooked up with the legendary Dorian Gray (Reeve Carney).
Dorian takes [Ethan] back to his place saying how sorry he is and tries lightening the mood with talk about cologne. It’s weird and intimate at the same time. Even the way he deposits sugar cubes in a drink says seduction…
Dorian decides to play a little mood music and spins some Sade, I mean Wagner. I blinked and Ethan rushes to Dorian, kissing him full on the mouth. This may have been the what the hell moment of the century. They get naked and go at it full Brokeback style. What?
We already liked this show, now we have another reason to watch.
