Another week. Another hideous picture of my face Photoshopped in to a McKinley high school student’s body.
Last night’s episode was pretty fantastic, but I do have some gripes.
Season 2, Episode 16, “Original Song”
KLAINE – So let’s just jump right in to the big event. Blaine kissed Kurt! I was running around NYC and missed the beginning of the episode last night, and then just decided not to watch it until later with my friend Kori who was DVR’ing it. But, I was reading Twitter and saw what happened! So, I was a bit spoiled by the time it happened, but I am VERY glad it happened nonetheless. Besides the cheesy “You moved me, Kurt” I was definitely teary-eyed and freaking out for Kurt. Blaine is a very up and down character, who just as much as he knows himself, doesn’t know himself at all. Think over this season who he’s kissed, what he’s said, who he’s been interested in. He’s the gay version of Finn, I think. So while I am VERY happy that the Klaine romance has begun officially, I can’t help but suspect that Kurt is going to eventually have his heart broken. I am very protective of Kurt, and am hoping that this won’t happen…but in the realm of television it’s almost a certainty.
So while I LOVED that entire scene (did anyone else get butterflies when Blaine was staring at Kurt singing ‘Blackbird?’), I do think that I was expecting a little more of a hype. Glee is good at throwing fastballs (like this one), but with this kind of romance you almost want to see one or both of them break down and confess their love for each other. On the show, there hasn’t really been THAT much courting by either person…and now suddenly Blaine has found his “moment” and is making out with Kurt!? Again, very excited that it’s happening, I just thought that there would be more to it than that.
Kurt singing “Blackbird” in his all-black ensemble was beautiful. I’ve LOVED the song “Blackbird” for a really long time, and hearing his rendition made me love it even more.
QUINN – I’m SOOOOOOO over Quinn. I’m also over Finn. Luckily they’re both involved with each other, so maybe they’ll write them off the show easier!? I could only hope. That whole scene at the piano made me want to FLIP THE F OUT on Quinn. And don’t even get me started on when Rachel was sitting on her bed crying!! Much like Kurt, I am protective of Rachel Berry, and ANYONE who makes Rachel sob and cry like that immediately becomes my arch-nemesis. That whole inner dialogue thing at the beginning of the episode was the most we had even heard from Quinn all season. Let’s go back to just keeping her in the background. Plskthnks.
TROUTY MOUTH – Um, did Santana REALLY just make up a song about Sam’s mouth? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Love it. Where can I download it?
BIG ASS HEART – Something interesting needs to happen with Puck/Lauren. I liked the style of the song, but…
HELL TO THE NO – Hell to the YESSS! This is one of my favorite songs that Mercedes has EVER sang! I need more of this in my life.
So now that The Warblers didn’t make it to nationals, where will Kurt be singing? I hear they are doing an episode centered around Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” song. I see Kurt heading back to McKinley, and having a confrontation with Karofsky! It better happen!
Random Thoughts I Didn’t Feel Like Developing (RTIDFLD)
- The Warblers were SO cheesy and ridic at Regionals. Candles was beautiful. Raise Your Glass was cringeworthy.
- I had heard a character dies during this episode. Turns out it was Pavarotti. WTF.
- Love that Sue is back to raising hell.
- LOVED Rachel Berry’s original song at Regionals!
- I want to be friends with Sister Mary Constance.
- Kathy Griffin was just meh.
Glee won’t be new again until APRIL. UGH! So go catch up on some of this season’s happenings…there are only a few episodes left!
