Crazy Ex-Girlfriend just made a third character bisexual and fans are loving it
Warning: Contains spoilers for season 3, episode 11 of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend which aired 2 February in the US.
TV show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend has smashed the trope of the token gay character by making another character bisexual.
In a recent episode of the CW musical comedy, viewers were surprised and delighted to see that Valencia Perez (Gabrielle Ruiz) had found a girlfriend.
Valencia was introduced in the first season as a competitor for the main character of Rebecca (Rachel Bloom) as Valencia was dating her childhood sweetheart/obsession, Josh Chan.
During this week’s episode, viewers were delighted to find that Valencia was in a relationship with a woman, making her the third bisexual character on the show.
Valencia was seen meeting her future girlfriend before an eight-month time jump, after Valencia was hired to plan a series of parties for her.
After the jump, Valencia and her as yet unnamed girlfriend were seen to be happily together, without any questions about Valencia’s sexuality from the other characters.
Although Valencia’s sexuality has not been labelled within the show, many fans are proudly claiming her as the third bisexual character in the popular musical-comedy.
Crazy Ex-Girlfriend fans flooded to social media to express their joy at this latest representation.
Some fans were shocked as well as being delighted, with one fan writing: “Did Crazy Ex-Girlfriend really make Valencia bi?? For real??”
Other fans were more emotional with their joy. “I need you all to know that I am crying,” one viewer wrote.
Some people went just full on caps lock due to the intensity of their emotion.
As well as Valencia, the CW show includes several other confirmed LGB characters.
