I wish people would ask Drew if HE realizes what that means. And why he would want that for someone he says is his friend. Zach told Frankie that until he left for BB, he’s spent almost every day of the last seven years getting high. These should be huge red flags for Drew that Zach has been in real emotional pain (that’s an issue that will only get worse in the future if Zach isn’t forced to confront the reason why). And now he’s been with Frankie the last two months, happier than he’s ever been, “in love with Frankie” who he loves “more than anyone” Zach’s “ever met in his entire life” and who has all of the qualities most important to Zach (and those are ALL Zach’s own words), and he can get hard even just cuddling Frankie… while sober, no booze or drugging himself to blunt his emotions needed.
Drew (and Jill) need to think about this very seriously right now. Before Zach gets home. And they need to push aside whatever reservations they have about Zach’s sexuality, for ZACH’s sake, and encourage him to live freely and not go back to the way it’s been for him.
Also: If Zach was a girl and her “best friend” was going around telling guys that the best way to get with her is to get her drunk first because that’s the only time she will have sex….. what would the fandom response be?
Honestly my favourite part about Zach’s gameplay was when he got a boner after cuddling the shit out of Frankie for an entire night that was A+ strategy I totally fell for it I was like fuck Dicaprio give him an Oscar
And remember when he asked the other guys why they don’t get hard when they cuddle? Because they don’t want to fuck Frankie like you do.
The fact that Zach seems to be panicking makes me more convinced than ever that he has had gay thoughts/feelings for Frankie… Because if it was just an act…wouldn’t you be comfortable with the fact that people might call you gay? There is no way that Zach could be dumb enough to say “Hey, I’m gonna strategically/purposely flirt with guys/a guy all summer and no one’s going to question my sexuality”…
This is why Zach NEEDS to get supportive messages about coming out, about how much we loved watching him be HIMSELF with Frankie. Ignoring reality or enabling him to stay closeted is simply not doing him a kindness. I’m not saying hold a gun to his head and yell at him “say you’re gay”, but getting flooded with messages about how beautiful their relationship is, how awesome he is WITH Frankie, can only help him in both the near and distant future.

Of course he heard what he’s thinking rather than what was actually said.
Okay, I have a lot of thoughts about this actually!
I want to preface this by saying that this is MY interpretation of everything that went on. I am in no way saying what I think is 100% correct and I accept the fact that I’m not in Zach’s head and could very well be wrong. This is just how I see it.
This is a really interesting interpretation of everything that has happened with those two and I strongly agree with you on several of your points. I love them together and I honestly don’t care if they become a couple I just hope they don’t let the friendship that they have go to waste and contiue to be in each other’s lives.
I also strongly agree with several of these points. However, I think that I might be in a minority that thinks Zach is actually gay — or much closer to gay than he is to straight. If you tried to pin me down on his Kinsey number, I’d guess that he’s about a 5.
(All of the points the OP makes in the 2nd and 3rd paragraphs are just the tip of the iceberg in Zach’s apparent disinterest in the female sex. Like, I haven’t seen or heard anything that actually suggests he is interested in women sexually, but I have heard him say a lot of things that suggest the opposite. I mean, I am sure that he thinks some girls are beautiful and is probably fascinated by boobs, but that applies to many gay men too.)
