Spoilers ahead. Do not proceed unless you want to know what’s going to happen and discuss it with us! There were more spoilers here in this post. And a lot of people are very interested in reading what Darren Criss had to say on the topic here.
Do you think I’ve wasted enough words that the spoilers won’t show on the Facebook page? Let’s hope so.
So ever since we were spoiled that Kurt and Blaine (and Rachel and Finn) were going to seal the deal in episode 5, there has been a lot of speculation. Not much speculation about Rachel and Finn, because I think we are all pretty clued in on how the media presents straight kids having sex. That said, this is Glee, so it might be worth speculating just a little bit.
Back to Kurt and Blaine, however, we actually know quite a lot. From what we can tell, Blaine convinces Kurt to go to a gay bar, using fake IDs. They encounter Dave Karofsky and new Warbler Sebastian (is that in the bar?). After the leave the bar, Blaine tries it on with Kurt and Kurt objects because he wants their first time to be special, not in the back seat of Blaine’s car.
We know they kiss on the stage in the auditorium. We know that there is a set for Blaine’s bedroom. We know that both couples will be seen to be using protection.
It took me a few minutes to catch on to why this was significant for Kurt and Blaine, but I got there eventually.
You see, there’s a lot of “I don’t know” when it comes to what constitutes losing your virginity when you’re queer. I’m not going into it again, but there is. So there was quite a lot of speculation about what exactly Kurt and Blaine would be doing. A lot of gay guys don’t do anal, so that certainly wasn’t a given. But since the condom spoiler came out, that seems more and more likely what we’re mean to believe is happening.
Oh, and Coach Beiste is meant to gain a love interest.
Have I got everything there? Missing anything? Is there anything in this episode we don’t know about?
