One episode also won't resolve all the show's major ongoing dramas, like Amy Rita Volk sorting out her sexuality or her best friend Karma Katie Stevens sorting out her behavior toward Amy.
Sadly, we will have to be content with Lauren Bailey De Young above simply being the first intersex character on a prime-time drama. She's a great character and it would have been interesting to see her get an extended romantic storyline so she could drop some of her self-protecting walls. We also won't get much more information about Karma's ex-boyfriend Liam Gregg Sulkinwho has gotten more interesting, or Felix Parker Mackwho's been an intriguing wild card.

Upon discovering that Amy has true feelings for her, she tries to keep from breaking her best friend's heart, even encouraging her to date other girls.
