While everyone on “Schitt’s Creek” grew up when they (mostly) abandoned their selfish, self-centered tendencies, David’s journey is especially meaningful. David Starts off as a sarcastic, closed-minded guy, too absolute for school, who struggles to get people in. By the end of the series, though he’s no less sarcastic, he’s opened up to intimacy, vulnerability, and even kindness to both Patrick and his family.
Patrick was the first person David fell in love with, but their relationship ran into trouble when David discovered that Patrick was engaged to a woman. Both of them take a short break. In season 4 episode “The Olive Branch”, David realizes that he misses Patrick (although he would love to receive all the sorry presents). Patrick discovers that David has milked him for these gifts, so David extends an olive branch: he becomes Patrick’s private dancer and dances to their song, “Simply the Best”.
Unlike many shows that follow an endless will they-or-will-don’t-see-they-see, “Schitt’s Creek” allows David and Patrick to thrive together without too much chaos. . Instead, the show portrays a same-sex couple that doesn’t suffer tragedy or heartbreak or someone who eventually dies (also known as “bury your gays” trope). It makes their journey a favorite of LGBTQ+ and casual audiences alike. For many, this particular episode perfectly captures the rosy prism of true love.
