* '''Deconstructed''': The reveal puts a heavy strain on (or outright breaks) Bob and Andy's relationship. For one thing, Bob cannot forgive him for having lied to him about something so important, and Andy ends up heartbroken because he just wanted to get close to Bob, not even as a romantic interest, but as a good friend, and now he just hates him guts.

** "I don't know if I'm going to bother watching tonight's episode, TV Guide says Bob finds out his girlfriend Alice was born male and [[GenreSavvy we all know]] his reaction is going to be so insensitive and horrified that it'll make pretty much every transgendered or trans-friendly viewer cringe."
