#SpoilerAlert: Below reveals plot lines for The Righteous Gemstones Season 3, Episode 8.
HBO‘s The Righteous Gemstones centers on three siblings Jesse (Danny McBride) and Judy (Edi Patterson) and their younger brother Kelvin (Adam DeVine).
And Kelvin has been somewhat ambiguous (as well as obvious) about his “relationship” with close friend Keefe (Tony Cavalero).
In Season 3’s whopper of a finalé, I Will Take You By the Hand and Keep You, Kelvin suddenly kisses Keefe before joining his brother and sister to lead the service together at their megachurch.
It was a big moment in the long “will-the-won’t-they” dynamic.
It was a culmination of the last two-plus seasons and you see their relationship grow and grow. And especially this season, you see them get closer than ever only to have the church tear them apart.
It seems like they’re gonna be broken up. And we were talking about how often that probably happens with this kind of relationship where there’s a fork in the road and they choose to go left and then they never see the love of their life possibly ever again.
So it was cool to fulfill their destiny of smooching.”
Cavalero wonders where this new development could take Kelvin and Keefe in the future (the show was just renewed for Season 4 ahead of the finalé).
I’m really curious too. Danny’s such a genius. I don’t even wanna ponder it.
I mean, I think there’s a world still where they’re so new to this that… they’re still discovering what this is and what it means.
Cause I still feel like they’re very inexperienced entirely.”
Inexperienced, especially for Kelvin… sexually [and] just in general.
He might not have ever kissed anyone in his life. It doesn’t seem like he is a very sexual person at all. So it’s very asexual, to begin with.
So I think it’ll be a very elementary level love.”
But Cavalero believes Keefe’s (a former Satan worshiper) could teach Kelvin a few things,
I feel like he’s done everything under the sun. So is there like a little bit of,
‘it’s okay, let me teach you’”
