Brandon Scott Jones Explains Isaac’s Coming Out on Ghosts

Not the coming out story we envisioned.

In the Nov. 18 episode of Ghosts, titled “D&D,” viewers viewed as Isaac (Brandon Scott Jones), the ghost of a Revolutionary War soldier, designed a surprising confession: He’s a assassin. A flashback scene revealed that Isaac accidentally shot his British rival, Nigel, though admiring the adversary through an eyeglass he mounted on a rifle.

This was understandably shocking information to Nigel, but it was even much more stunning for us tuning in, as we assumed Isaac was likely to expose his genuine feelings about the British soldier. Isaac’s sexuality has been implied all over the sequence, with the 245-yr-old ghost even seemingly crushing on Jay (Utkarsh Ambudkar) at one place.

And, in “D&D,” the fellow ghosts prompt that Isaac and Nigel have been crushing on each and every other for some time. So why did not Isaac tell Nigel how he truly feels in the new episode?

Well, in accordance to Brandon, this is just one step in Isaac’s larger journey of self-discovery. “Certainly, Isaac comes out of the closet in this episode, but not essentially as a homosexual,” he exclusively told E! News, “but as a murderer.”

For each Brandon, Isaac has suffered “a good deal of guilt and a ton of shame” about this incident, and quite possibly blamed his sexuality in the method.
