Warehouse 13 gets a gay character – Sadly it’s not Myka or Helena Wells

If you’re not up to date with “Warehouse 13” and you don’t want to know who’s gay, avert your eyes. Right, sadly it isn’t Myka or H.G, even though most of us love their chemistry. The new gay character in “Warehouse 13” is Agent Steve Jinks (played by Aaron Ashmore). So why report on this when it’s not a lesbian? Simple, “Warehouse 13” is a sci-fi series and this doesn’t happen very often in that genre (though “Caprica” and “Battlestar Galactica” went some way). The thing I loved about the introduction of this story is that there was no story, it was said, accepted and things moved on. Claudia’s response on hearing the news couldn’t have been more perfect and Ashmore’s cool yet dorky demeanor superb, there was no fruity ‘oh he’s obviously gay’, there was no ‘let’s throw in this stereotypical gay thing so the audience gets it’. We can all wish for that Helena Wells and Myka Bering reunion, where they realize they’re made for each other, but chances are that’s not going to happen, but at least “Warehouse 13” went there and in a nonchalant manner. For those who missed the Myka Bering and Helena Wells goodness, I’ve popped a youtube clip in for you (nice clip by user “nowhere897x”).
