One of Jude's main storylines has revolved around his sexuality and friendship with Connor since the beginning of the show, we have seen Jude grow and become more outgoing and independent of Callie for the last two seasons. These things shape his identity, however, who is Jude separate from other people? I would like to see Jude explore his interests. It is arguable that Jude has an interest in video games, but, I would like to see him actively pursue something. I think that Jude could definently have an interest in programming due to his interest in video games. What do you guys think?
Why is this a stupid question? The reason posted this is because I think that Jude's sexuality has become his defining trait. I'd like to see his interests explored more than they already have been, there have been a multitude of opportunities (Jude's essay; writing, The dress; fashion, The drawings in his locker; art) to expand in to yet another interesting facet of his character.obviously he does enjoy video games and I phrased that wrong, I apologize. Returning to the first sentence in this paragraph, why is this a stupid question?
that's an interesting observation. when i think about it, it's "jude in the context of conner", "jude in the context of callie", or "jude in the context of lena/stef". i want to see "just jude" too. hmm, jude's essay…maybe one of his interests could be writing?
not only would i like to see jude pursuing an interest or two, i would also like to see him have a storyline with mariana, mike, and/or even donald. but i'm not sure about programming…the writers are already exploring this through mariana and her coding STEM class. and i wouldn't expect him to pursue sports as an interest either. but i really don't have any idea what kind of interests jude could have.
That is a good idea. As he is no longer the 'baby', I've grown less interested in him as a character since I'm in the minority that doesn't care heavily about Jonnor. I'd be more intrigued if he was exploring his own interests rather than reacting to the events going on around him and the occasional Jonnor adventure.
