This week TV gave us a new love interest for Oliver Hampton, a mystical mystery on Rosewood, a trip to Feudal Japan for the Waverider crew, and more. Here are my choices for the 10 best LGBT-inclusive TV episodes of the week.

2. Shameless: “I Am a Storm”
This week Ian Gallagher got a new love interest in Elliot Fletcher’s Trevor. So far, the relationship has a lot of chemistry and could be interesting. Meanwhile, this episode showed Fiona Gallagher’s continued determination to live her life for herself. But, it looks like she may come back from that path, between her conversation with Veronica Fisher and the great moment at the end where almost the entire family was at her party.
1. Superstore: “Halloween Theft”
This was a great episode written by the hilarious Karey Dornetto. Everyone acknowledging how hot Dina is was fantastic, as was Mateo and Jeff’s date.
