    Well if there was any hope of Jesus and Sasha hooking up, this article has put that to rest:
    http://www.digitalspy.com/tv/the-wa...king-dead-jesus-is-gay-and-hes-also-a-badass/

    While we know that Jesus from The Walking Dead is gay in the comics, the TV show has been much more ambiguous about the character's sexuality.

    However, actor Tom Payne - who plays the character otherwise known as Paul Rovia on AMC's show - has told us all what we wanted to hear by essentially confirming his TV sexuality.

    Speaking to The Huffington Post, the star said of bringing that aspect of his character to the screen: "It think that would be amazing."
    He added: "Yeah, who cares? He's a badass and he happens to be gay.

    "I think that's one of the strongest things about Robert [Kirkman] and how he writes the comic books. Why wouldn't he be? And I see no reason why that would be different in the show."

    While fans had recently been shipping the idea of Jesus and Sasha (Sonequa Martin), at least we can now rest assured his character will stay faithful to the comics.

    My fingers crossed for a Jesus and Aaron connection.

    Yes! I'm glad they're keeping his sexuality the same as in the comics. I did not pick up on any romantic vibes between Jesus and Sasha. :lol: Friends only.

    Thank :jesus:

    I see no reason why they would change it, but it was a nagging worry regardless.

    Yeah there was nothing between those two. I don't see Sasha giving her heart to anyone for a very long time again if ever; especially so soon. She's lost Bob and now Abe.

    Yes, so happy that they are keeping this aspect with Jesus. If something happens to Erik, I am so down with Aaron and Jesus. Oh, the pretty between these two!!!

    Tom basically confirmed Jesus's sexuality at his panel at Walker Stalker ATL. He was asked about the jumping out of bed scene with Rick and Michonne in 610; the moderators then asked him what his point of focus in that scene was and he responded that it was supposed to be Rick (he was also nervous about getting hit in the face with Michonne's sword though :lol:). He said that the director told him to look at Rick, look down :gareth:, and smile.

    I don't think this will quell Jesus/Sasha shippers tho. Hell, Rick is straight and that doesn't stop people from shipping Rickyl. :tdog:

    Omg and then at the table he made that comment about the "well stocked armory" he spyed the night before while the camera focus is on Michonne, haha! He was low key like gf you're man is hung, you must be sprung.
