“Darren Criss and Chris Colfer wear Blaine and Kurt’s emotions out on their sleeves. The two actors are masters at delivering all of the emotions involved with a first love to a fault: the insecurity, the vulnerability, the desperation and the adoration.”—
“[The scene between Kurt and Burt] may have had me reaching for tissues, but it was about to get even sadder: After their respective solos, Kurt and Blaine went to talk to Emma, who had fashioned herself a relationship counselor after her talk with Sam and Mercedes. Tell me you caught Emma’s quick wink to Kurt when he promised he was “actively listening” to Blaine’s complaints. And Blaine certainly had some complaints: After they got past small stuff such as snapping at waiters — Seriously. Don’t do this — and putting bronzer in his moisturizer, they opened their hearts and got to the real problem: Kurt talked about NYADA all the time, and Blaine wasn’t looking forward to next year when he was going to be all alone and away from the love of his life. This was the kind of real-life fear that everyone has at the end of high school, when everything is changing super-fast. It’s like what Finn wished for last week — you just want everything to stand still. Blaine and Kurt’s relationship is going to change in a few months, but their teary confessions and ‘I love you’s’ finally put them on the same page with a promise to always be together. Here’s hoping.”—Entertainment Weekly’s recap of 3.17, “Dance With Somebody.” [s] (via daxterdd)
Blaine’s Eyes of Sadness were like Adele and Sarah McLachlan serenading blind, amputee orphans and homeless corgis on a sinking ship in the middle of the cold, chasmic Antarctic Ocean.
Now excuse me as I rob City Convenience of all its Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.
The Quad’s Glee-cap. Kind of awesome: this reviewer is normally not a fan of Blaine, but apparently was really moved by him in last night’s episode. (via sunandrainfic)
“When a show can make one of my least favorite characters in the history of existence into the gatekeeper of all my feelings in under an hour, I have to concede at least some skill. Or witchcraft. One of the two.”
