This is not the Coming Out Story we Expected.

The Nov. 18 episode Ghosts, titled “D&D,” viewers watched as Isaac (Brandon Scott Jones“The ghost” of a Revolutionary War soldier confessed shockingly to being a murderer. A flashback scene revealed that Isaac accidentally shot his British rival, Nigel, while admiring the adversary through an eyeglass he mounted on a rifle.

This was understandably shocking news to Nigel, but it was even more surprising for us tuning in, as we thought Isaac was going to reveal his true feelings about the British soldier. Isaac’s sexuality has been implied throughout the series, with the 245-year-old ghost even seemingly crushing on Jay (Utkarsh Abudkar(At one point).

And, in “D&D,” the fellow ghosts suggested that Isaac and Nigel have been crushing on each other for some time. Why then didn’t Isaac reveal to Nigel what he truly feels in the latest episode?

According to Brandon, it’s just the first step of Isaac’s larger journey towards self-discovery. “Yes, Isaac comes out of the closet in this episode, but not necessarily as a homosexual,” he exclusively told CelebHomes News, “but as a murderer.”

Brandon says that Isaac felt “a lot guilt and shame” about the accident. PerhapsHe was also blamed for his sexuality.
