“Arrow” revealed that one of its major characters is gay in the second episode of its seventh season.

The episode titled “The Longbow Hunters,” which aired on Monday, featured a flash forward with Oliver’s son William now all grown up. William is reunited with Roy and gives a quick rundown of what he’s been up to in an off-hand comment about his sexuality.

“Felicity and Oliver, they really just left you?” Roy asks William.

He replies: “Pretty much. And my ex-boyfriend wonders why I have commitment issues.”

Some fans were thrilled at the series adding more LGBT characters.

“Arrow” airs on Mondays at 8 p.m. on CW.
