Warning: Spoilers below for the second season of Netflix’s “Glow.”
On the newest season of “Glow,” Bash Howard (Chris Lowell) speaks often about Florian.
Florian has been Bash’s friend since third grade, and was employed by him as a butler.
On season two, Florian leaves after Bash admits he can’t afford to pay him anymore.
While trying to look for him, Bash realizes Florian is gay.
This is linked to Bash’s own complicated sexuality and identity.
Sebastian “Bash” Howard (played by Chris Lowell) was the unexpected focus of a dramatic and nuanced subplot on the second season. The dramatic turn of events focused on Florian, Bash’s longtime friend and butler, who was introduced on the first season of “Glow” when the women went to Bash’s house for a party.
“Flor is my secret weapon,” Bash told the Debbie and the other wrestlers. “We met in the third grade and now he works for me.”
Florian was there for Debbie when she needed to drunkenly vent, and then later on in the first season he was in the ring for the crowning of Libery Belle (and then Welfare Queen).
Florian, though important to Bash, never appears on season two of “Glow.”
By the second season’s fifth episode, Bash reveals that his longtime friend and butler Florian has left. Bash says they got into a big fight after yet another of Florian’s paychecks bounced.
“We got into this big fight and he got really mad and stormed out,” Bash tells Carmen. “Said I was being completely solipsistic. I looked it up. It means that you think you’re the center of the universe and that you don’t care about other people.”
When Carmen decides to help Bash find Florian and set things right, she asks if there’s anywhere Florian might hang out.
When Bash, Carmen, and Rhonda arrive at the bar, he realizes it’s a gay bar. The bartender (Florian’s friend) appears to be familiar with Bash thanks to hearing about him so often from the young butler.
Bash appears disconcerted and uncomfortable in the bar, as if he didn’t know Florian might be gay.

Later in the season, Bash gets a phone call from a San Francisco hospital. He’s told that Florian Becker has passed away, and that Bash was listed as the emergency contact.
