Remember back in the season 3 premiere, when Tom woke up Kate and told her to take a shower. She worried about undressing in front of him, and he replied, “Relax, you’re not my type.” At that moment, speculation began to run rampant that Tom was, in fact, a homosexual.
Last night’s episodes confirmed that assumption when we saw that, in his trips off the island, Tom enjoys spending time with Arturo, who may or may not be (but probably is) a male escort. It’s a quaint little character note, and one of those things that makes me wish they didn’t kill off M.C. Gainey at the end of last season.
