Bisexuals in brooklyn dating dating topics of discussion
[Editor’s Note: Spoilers for “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” Season 5, Episode 10, “Game Night” follow.] The Fox comedy “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” for reasons made obvious by its title, chose to celebrate its 99th episode last week, putting the spotlight on each character during a crazy road trip from Los Angeles to New York.But it also included a big reveal that became a central part of the show’s 100th episode, “Game Night” — Rosa (Stephanie Beatriz), the show’s resident badass, coming out as bisexual.Like, it just felt like such a boon as a writer and a no-brainer.” It’s also not a storyline that’s over by any means, especially given how things were left with Rosa’s mother.
Also, again, just from a writing perspective, seeing Danny Trejo, who is the paradigm of tough, melt and accept, and hug his daughter.Rosa’s coming-out, showrunner Dan Goor told Indie Wire, was a story choice made in close discussion with Beatriz this season.“In a way, after Stephanie came out, and has really in so many ways become such an LGBT advocate, we felt like it was really a meaningful opportunity for the character, and it definitely felt in-world for the character.After he overhears Rosa talking on the phone with a woman who refers to her as “babe,” she tries unsuccessfully to brush it off before ultimately admitting to him that she is in fact dating a woman, bluntly stating, “I’m bi.”After some encouragement from Boyle, Rosa comes out to the rest of the squad in the following episode, “Game Night,” as well as to her parents over dinner and Pictionary.I remember watching these scenes and immediately thinking about my first time coming out as bisexual.
“She was very intimately involved in the breaking of the story, and what the character said, and what the other characters said to her, so that it felt grounded and real.” While Rosa first only tells Boyle about her sexuality in “99,” in “Game Night,” Rosa first comes out to the rest of the squad, then — with great difficulty — to her parents Julia and Oscar (played by Olga Merediz and Danny Trejo).
