Showtime: Last News


Last night’s ‘Fellow Travelers’ took us to the Pines to party & play, in the horninest, most heartbreaking episode yet

*Caution: Spoilers ahead for Fellow Travelers up through Episode 7, “White Knights.”*It was just over a year ago that photos leaked from the set of Fellow Travelers featuring stars Matt Bomer and Jonathan Bailey frolicking shirtless on the beach, breaking the Gay Internet in the process.While it’s felt like decades (and it literally has been in the show!), the Showtime series has finally caught up to that moment, taking us to groovy 1978 for a Fire Island Pines getaway in its latest episode, “White Nights.”But the episode isn’t all sun & fun and party & play—though there is plenty of all of that, which we’ll get to in a minute.A lot has changed since last week’s 1968-set outing, and Fellow Travelers (now a Golden Globe nominee for Best Limited Series, alongside Matt Bomer for his performance) catches us up with some archival footage of the Gay Liberation movement, from the Stonewall Riots to the shocking and tragic murder of politician Harvey Milk.Tensions are especially high in San Francisco, where Marcus (Jelani Alladin), Frankie (Noah J. Ricketts), and Tim all live, with the latter two working at an LGBTQ+ health clinic.
