In Glee: Vocal FusionEdit
In Season 1, Episode 1, Nate is called into Mr. William David Hall's office to be told that he has a new roomate. Nate was aware that his old roomate, Cameron, had moved to Kenton and accepts his new roomate, David Matthew Pierce Jr., who he is told enjoys football. Mr. Hall informs him of David's homosexuality, which Nate says he has no problem with. Nate is shown to be polite, helpful (carrying two of David's suitcases to their room) and tolerant towards others, accepting David after he is revealed to be gay. The two bond over a love of football, music, writing and the arts, Nate saying that he'd never met a guy who likes to sing and dance as well as play football and "all my friends only play football and stuff like that." He shows his distaste for homophobia (which is fairly uncommon at La Salle Academy) and promises to stick up for and protect David.
In Season 1, Episode 2, Nate suggests auditioning for Glee Club to David after Nate returns from showering. Although David is initially reluctant, due to his sexuality and fear of potential homophobia, Nate auditions with him to show support. The two are the first to audition the next day and sing a duet of "Dark Blue" by Jack's Mannequin, with Nate playing a supporting role. After both are praised by Mr. James Holloway and cheered by the audience, Nate auditions alone, singing "Don't walk away, Eileen" by Sam Roberts. The audience stand and cheer and Mr. Holloway is impressed, saying that Nate "rocked that song," although Mr. Patch Princeton Evans says "I think you were a little bit too loud at the end, but still a good performance." David and Nate congratulate each after after the auditions.
