But this week's episode was really something special. After a few misguided crushes on straight boys, this season Kurt finally was given a gay guy to have a crush on! Yes! Finally an actual love interest for Kurt! But unfortunately, the writers were moving a little too slow on that front - his love was yet again unrequited and he was stuck in the "just friends" zone. When we finally, last night, saw Blaine (Darren Criss) fall in love with Kurt - right before our eyes - we were pretty happy.
But we didn't expect it to go any further... at least anytime soon...
Lilith: I think this is the episode where Kurt and Blaine finally get together.
Jezebel: I have heard people complain that the progress on giving Kurt a love interest has been really slow.
Lilith: I'm sure we won't see any boy-boy kisses for a while though. It'll probably... oh shit, nope! There it is!!! Damn! Go Kurt!
Lilith: And now more!
Jezebel: Can't wait for the OMM email about this.
Did Glee handle the big gay kiss right? (Also, checkout Kurt and Blaine's duet from Regionals.)
Although the original songs (which was really supposed to be the point of this episode, no?) were great - the highlight for me was really Kurt and Blaine. I'm looking forward to seeing their relationship blossom in further episodes.
Sidenote: We also really loved Kathy Griffin's portrayal of Tammy Jean Albertson, a 'Former Tea Party Candidate/Twitterer' and Loretta Devine as Sister Mary Constance, an exotic-dancer-turned-nun. (Also, Bill A. Jones as Rod Remington, 'Gadabout'.) Their conversation during the voting was hilarious...
Sister Mary Constance: But my question is this: That Dalton Academy, is it a gay school, or is it just a school that appears gay?
Rod Remington: Could I add a dash of Rod to this lady soup? My hairdresser is a gay, and for fifteen years, he's been with his partner, also a hairdresser. I see no reason why they shouldn't be allowed to marry and raise a family of beautiful wigs.
Sister Mary Constance: I liked the duet the two boys from Dalton sang.
Tammy Jean Albertson: Oh, boys shouldn't do a duet. The last thing we need to do is send a message to children that "Gay is okay." It is not a legitimate lifestyle, and last time I checked, it's not in the Constitution.
