By

[Warning: Major spoilers ahead]

Throughout the hit ABC reboot series Roseanne, and its spin-off, The Conners, Darlene Conners’ (Sara Gilbert) gender non-conforming son has dropped subtle hints about his sexuality. On the Oct. 1 episode, “A Kiss is Just a Kiss,” Mark (Ames McNamara) officially comes out to his parents as gay.  

“We have to go see the principal tomorrow because your school has a no PDA (Public Display of Affection) rule and somebody posted a picture of you kissing your friend Austin at school,” Darlene says to her son. As any mother would do, she continues to question Mark's possible relationship status. “So, Austin’s your boyfriend?" she asks. How come you didn’t tell me?”
