If you're a fan of MTV's Teen Wolf, you may remember a certain moment in Season 2 when Jackson (Colton Haynes), Erica (Gage Golightly), and Isaac (Daniel Sherman) dance together at a rave.

It's long been a fandom-favorite moment, and it launched countless fan fic stories featuring both Jackson and Isaac as gay, bi, pan, or otherwise attracted to all kinds of people.

Well, that moment came full circle in a scene that played at Teen Wolf's panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Thursday, July 20.

I THINK THIS CLIP JUST CONFIRMED JACKSON AS BI DID I MISS SOMETHING #sdcc #teenwolf

In the scene, which hasn't been released, Jackson struts through the hallway of his old high school. A girl walks by, and he checks her out. Then a boy walks by, and he checks him out, too.

When news of the scene got out, fans, of course, went wild in all directions. Some were thrilled.

MAKING JACKSON BI IS THE BEST THING WHAT EVER HAPPENED IN TEEN WOLF

JACKSON IS BI I AM LIVING FOR THIS #TeenWolfSDCC

Some felt vindicated.

I PREDICTED THAT JACKSON LIKED GUYS BACK WHEN I FIRST STARTED WATCHING TEEN WOLF IN 2011 I TOLD UALL I TOLD YALL I TOLD YALL

And some thought it wasn't enough.

Basically, there were a lot of Jackson feelings.

jackson being gay/bi/whatever doesn't excuse the shitty stuff he's done 😬

UPDATE: On Friday, Haynes stopped by BuzzFeed News's suite at Comic-Con and we asked if he could confirm Jackson's sexual orientation. Here's what he said:

We chatted with @ColtonLHaynes about that #TeenWolf clip & Jackson's sexuality: https://t.co/jgwXg4CiiQ via… https://t.co/oXaRJb1ySf

"I can say that Jackson is everyone's type. He was very excited because he's getting attention again. So he saw this beautiful girl who was checking him out, so he checked her out. Then he saw this beautiful guy, and he gave him love, too. And then maybe there's a scene when they have a threesome after — you never know. He's definitely an equal opportunist. He enjoys love. Love is love, you know what I mean? Love wins, goddammit. Love wins."

BuzzFeed News has reached out to representatives for MTV for confirmation.
