The latest episode of The Vampire Diaries, finally gave us the first openly gay character on the show (Bill Forbes was gay, however never spoke about it, unlike Luke) . Luke Parker (Chris Brochu), is the brother to Liv Parker- the presumed newbie witch.
Luke seems to have befriended Elena whilst Katherine was inside her body at the Bitter Ball. But there has to be more to this! He pretended to be compelled. He knows his sister is a witch, with a lot more power than Bonnie knows. Does this make him a Witch (or Warlock, as the Luka – the last previous male witch called them). That is presuming they’re biological siblings.
The only thing we can do is wait and find out. But there has to be more going on here, overall as a character, and I’m guessing TVD will explore the theme of his sexuality a lot further too. Pretty new territory for the team.
