It was already known by ‘Kingdom’ fans that there is going to be a gay sex scene including Nick Jonas’ character. The character – who continues to struggle with his sexuality – was drugged and violated in the show’s latest episode.

The episode – titled ‘No Fault’ – saw Nate getting drugged at a party, before ending up in a bedroom with a man and a woman whom he went on to have a threesome with. The next day, the character is to shown to feel violated by the encounter – upset and angry that he’s been a victim of a sexual assault. After months of wondering whether or not the character would ever get the chance to live out his same-sex desires, fans were disappointed when the big moment finally arrived in such a horrific way.

“When we said we hoped Nate got a storyline this season this isn’t what we meant, but it’s a start,” wrote one Twitter user. “Nick’s character has been known to the audience to be gay for three years now, and this is what they’re doing to his character?” wrote another. “His first on-screen action with a guy was an assault and it still involved him mostly [with] the girl?”
