Although viewers had long wondered if the character George Huang was gay (as is BD Wong), his homosexuality was not verified until season eleven, episode five, "Hardwired". Even for a show and a franchise that is notoriously parsimonious with personal information about its characters, that is an extraordinarily long time for basic personal information to be withheld about a regular character on a television series (by contrast, both Detectives Elliot Stabler and Olivia Benson were established as heterosexual during the show's first season through dialogue and subplots about Stabler's marriage and Benson's dating habits).
