Character Introduction

First Noted In Season 1, Episode 1 “Annie”

Gabe is pretty much Annie’s idol, and she has been reading his work since she was 14. Thus making the fact he is a bit of a douche unfortunate, especially since he is her boss at The Weekly Thorn. However, as she begins to advocate for herself, it seems things might turn around in their relationship.
