I find it fascinating that Darren is playing a duo with a gay man, and they have love scenes. I think it’s a real contribution to human understanding. This milieu of the mixture of sexual identity.
I’m gonna be real honest with you: That’s the most romantic thing I have ever heard in my life. I know, I know. It’s rushed. They’re 18. It’s ridiculous. But love is ridiculous. And wonderful. And powerful. It’s the deepest thing in life. Love is deeper than reality. This is a show that opened with Kurt Hummel getting tossed into a trash dumpster. He crawled out, he came out, he found love, he moved to the city to follow his dreams, and now his boyfriend is standing in front of him holding an engagement ring and asking for forever.
And Kurt Hummel says yes.
They wrap each other up and kiss and kiss and kiss in front of their friends and family and God and the Parents Television Council and nine million Americans. It really does get better.
Darren: ”I have to be fresh-faced every day so I look like I’m 16.”
Chris: ”Sometimes I say, Wow they’re only 16 years old!”
Somebody needs to tell them that Kurt and Blaine aren’t 16.
I had a gentlemen earlier who was talking about his ten year old daughter… I’m making out with Chris Colfer in the backseat of a car, and he was saying he loved how his daughter would like, close her eyes, not because it was two, two gay boys kissing, but the same way a ten year old would close their eyes over any couple kissing! Which is great, because we’ve normalized something that several years ago, forget about it. On Fox? No way, dude! Like, in your dreams. So um, I think there’s a sort of goal to, to not even think about it. To, to just have it be about the story and about the character. That’s my own personal mantra.
When, you know, Darren looks at Chris… Or rather when Blaine looks at Kurt, and the sorrow in his eyes and the apology he keeps trying to give, to Kurt (…) and the sort of sincere sadness, the inner sadness in Blaine when he’s trying to recapture what he had with Kurt… I fall apart. Everytime. It just.. I’m a train wreck.
Kurt Hummel is Glee. His story, his triumphs, his journey: they are the true heart of this show, and even though he was wildly underused this year, I think the writers know that to be the truth. And so his most important relationship, his engagement, his wedding, it deserves more than to be shoehorned into a jam-packed finale. “Endgame” seems like the silliest thing to me because people act like it’s science or something, but Kurt Hummel is Glee‘s endgame. And I think Kurt Hummel’s wedding is the way this show will end its era. And we deserve that, don’t you think? We deserve to see Kurt and Blaine reconnect in every way, we deserve to see Kurt and Blaine carve out their lives in New York, individually and together. And Kurt deserves to have some autonomy, some say in the when and how and where of his engagement. ‘Cause once he says yes to Blaine Warbler, ain’t nobody running away from the altar.
Blaine liked it, but it seems Fox just wouldn’t let him put a ring on it.
