Okay maybe I’m just slow but what I absolutely love about In The Flesh is that I did not expect this at all. It never even occurred to me that Kieren might have been into boys all this time. Most series with gay (or simply not-straight) characters focus on their sexuality, but In The Flesh, just like in real life, your sexuality doesn’t matter, your whole life isn’t just about who you’re attracted to. Your sexual preference is a part of who you are but it doesn’t define you and the creators of In The Flesh got this message across brilliantly.
What I love about this scene is that it’s so symbolic.
To have blood on one's hands:

Seeing the blood on his hands (literally) made him realise that he has blood on his hands (get it?) (please tell me you get it) and you can see that his hands are starting to shake as he realises what a terrible thing he’s done.
