hrhchriscolfer: Just got home from work to find my first copies of these waiting for me!
My new challenge is explaining how good Glee is every week without repeating myself. It’s like I have to keep reassuring that this is all not some fever dream — music good, plot good, dancing good, characters good.
- Mercedes assumption that Blaine lit all those candles. I now imagine she comes home often and Blaine has decorated for some obscure holiday and is cooking everyone a themed meal on the regular. It’s just a thing.
- Cronuts are both mad expensive and mad hard to purchase, and so sweet that stuffing an entire one in your mouth is impossible. I laughed so hard.
- Kurt and Blaine do tension so well, and for once it’s not all focused on external jealousy, but jealousy between the couple. We’ve touched on it before in the West Side Story plotline, but seeing that flipped, and seeing it betray some real issues for Blaine, was great. And I think they both acted the hell out of that.
- How awkward do you think it was for that stage combat class though? I assume everyone at NYADA knows they’re engaged. AWK-WARD.
- Artie getting a plot that calls him out on his suss behavior around woman is good, and I hope he takes it all to heart. The girls they had in for his love affairs were all super enjoyable actress too, I want to know more about them.
(There’s a small mistype in this recap that’s to be fixed, but I fell asleep before I could tell my editor what I meant with a certain line. Oh the woes of journalism.)
This is the best part but seriously - go read the entire thing! Once again, Ms. Amanda…SPOT ON!
Kurt finds Blaine at the loft and asks what was up in combat class, and we begin what is apparently going to be a weekly Very Important Conversation. It kind of reminds me of the end of every episode of Full House where the music would start and we would learn the week’s lesson. Don’t get me wrong, I love these scenes between Kurt and Blaine both because Darren Criss and Chris Colfer act the hell out of them and because it’s nice to see them actually talk through problems rather than be relegated to background looks and hastily solved conflicts, but I worry that with them inarguably becoming the main couple of the show, all the writers will do is throw a Conflict of the Week at them for the rest of the series. Because all Glee knows how to do is unite, break up, and reunite couples. Can’t we also have a scene of them just being happy? Once in a while?
In high school I did everything I could not to take my shirt off in front of other people. Like, I don’t think I showered once after gym class. Now though, thanks to a little more working out, a little more protein, my outside-self is catching up to my inside-self. And I feel pretty comfortable in my skin. And that feels good.
omg Mercedes sees a million romantic candles all over every surface of the apartment, and immediately thinks GOD DAMNIT BLAINE NOT AGAIN.
klaine talking too much is the joke of the fucking year
Kurt doing pushups
