Throughout the Series[edit | edit source]

Season 1[edit | edit source]

Tony introduces Clay Jensen and Brad to each other. When Clay's gone, Brad asks if he is the kid that keeps texting Tony, and how many there are of them. Tony tells him it was about school, but Brad mentions that he thinks it's something Tony doesn't want him to be a part of. Tony tells him that he can't let him be part of it because he got a secret to keep.

Brad brings Clay a drink, but Clay's just leaving. He calls him 'one intense dude', to which Tony replies that he's just going through some stuff. Brad says that it's clear and that Tony's is too. He asks Tony to tell him that it's not about a guy.

At the Baker's Drug Store, Tony introduces Brad as his friend. Brad later asks him about it, and Tony tells him that Ryan Shaver always introduced him as 'my boyfriend' like he was his possession. Brad tells him that he gets it but he is not Ryan and that he's not going to judge him, but that Tony has to tell him what's going on or he can't be his friend or boyfriend. Tony tells Brad about Hannah, and Brad takes Tony in his arms.
