‘Glee’ recap of Blaine’s interest in Rachel, Kurt’s hurt feelings
By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: GLEECAP: On last night’s episode of ‘Glee,’ Blaine (Darren Criss) wondered if he was possibly bisexual after he kissed Rachel (Lea Michele) while playing a drunken game of spin the bottle at a party.
Prior to the airing, there had been some dismay at the possibility that Blaine might be going the bisexual route but it ended up being handled well and, thankfully, wrapped up in a single episode!
When Kurt (Chris Colfer) brought Blaine along to Rachel’s party where the booze flowed and all kinds of different drunks emerged (the angry drunk, the fun drunk, the needy drunk, the stripper drunk etc).
Apparently Blaine turned into a bisexual drunk when his kiss with Rachel during a game of spin the bottle turned unexpectedly pleasurable. Then the two perform a duet and appear, much to Kurt’s horror, to have some real chemistry. The next day Rachel called Blaine and asks him out on a date and he accepts.
He tells a disapproving Kurt: “When we kissed, it felt good. What’s the harm in going out on one crummy little date? … I’m searching. I’m honestly trying to figure out who I am.”
Kurt’s anger is perfectly understandable. He has romantic feelings for Blaine and what’s more, Blaine has been something of a gay role model for him.
My favorite scene was when Kurt dropped in on Rachel to help her clean up after the party but really, he’s come over to find out how the date went with Blaine and he gets in some really bitchy zingers.
Rachel bubbles with the news that they went to see Love Story and that they have so much in common. Retorts Kurt: “A sentiment expressed by many a hag about many a gay. … There’s something you and Blaine will never have and that’s chemistry.”
But Rachel is undaunted and the next day at the coffee house, she plants a kiss on Blaine’s mouth. It’s a epiphany for him: “Yup, I’m gay. 100 percent gay. Thank you so much for clearing that up for me Rachel.”
