Spoilers for season two, episode three of Euphora follow.
Euphoria, HBO's Skins-esque series about US teens gone wild, is getting queerer by the episode in its second season.
In season two episode three 'Ruminations: Big and Little Bullys', which dropped on NOWTV in the UK this week, the show's resident villain Cal (Eric Dane) was given a gay origin story worthy of its own movie.
In a romantic flashback sequence, the symbol of toxic masculinity was seen exploring his sexuality with his high school friend - that is, until his girlfriend falls pregnant (presumably with his eldest son, played in the present day by heartthrob Jacob Elordi.) Disast.

The latest instalment is the latest in a long line of headline-generating episodes for the Zendeya-starring show.
Only last week, actor Christin Byrdsong made waves when he revealed that it he was the mystery extra rimmed by Cal - played by Grey's Anatomy star Eric Dane - six minutes into episode two of season two.
On Twitter, Byrdsong wrote: "The dream was to work on this amazing show, with the incredible director, and multitalented actors.
"And I got to film [a] fake sex scene with a childhood crush/actor inspiration!"
Replying to a fan who said "there are two darkskin characters in euphoria and one of them was getting they butt ate by nate’s dad as an extra," Byrdsong said: "It was me #DreamsComeTrue."
Coverage has also focused on the abundance of male appendages on the show, with a guy going full frontal while on the toilet in episode one of season two - no doubt inspired by an infamous scene from season one which featured 30 penises in one go.
