After four years as Assistant District Attorney, Law & Order's Serena Southerlyn came out (to viewers, at least) moments before disappearing from the series altogether.
District Attorney Branch (former senator/gruff character actor Fred Thompson) fired Southerlyn for getting too emotionally involved in her cases.
Southerlyn: "You're not firing me because I'm a lesbian?"
Southerlyn: "Good... good."
