Let’s just get a few things off our chests. You’ll have to excuse me if this post is almost entirely Klaine-centric. That’s because of all the feelings (and no, Sam, not “in my pants” feelings).
Let’s talk about Quinn for a second. Anyone else notice her doing her makeup in the hand dryer? So yeah, we’re talking here about how disability can affect how we see ourselves. Also, it’s bullshit there’s no sink and mirror at her level.
But mostly, we’re going to continue talking about how Kurt is pregnant. There’s a seahorse (which he’s not taking with him to NYADA — it got a pink post-it) on his bedroom shelf. Anyone else notice how his cardigan buttons are undone at the bottom? Wonder if he’s had to sew an elasticated waist onto his skinny jeans?
The hippo brooch that Chandler noticed could represent Tewaret, the Egyptian goddess of pregnancy and childbirth. Continuity huh?
Also, there’s a silver fox scarf/wrap thing flung casually over his mirror. We’ve discussed silver fox imagery before re: Kurt.
I’m expecting Racheline will come through with more commentary on Lesbian Bed Death, and all the other death that Kurt mediates. I’ll leave that to her.
I have some suspicions that the set dressers know of the phrase “cockblocking keyboard.” Because in the episode that addresses “lesbian bed death” (really? DID THAT REALLY JUST HAPPEN?), we have two cockblocking keyboards.
We also have Blaine singing another female empowerment song and looking like a BadWolf game show host (I got reallyworried about Kurt when I realised that.)
But, of course, my OTP is solid. Blaine was freaking out over Kurt leaving. Kurt was doubting his attractiveness again. I find it hilarious that they talked about it — someone on Tumblr commented that these two boys have obviously both been in therapy. Because when my high school boyfriend went off to university (about 1000 miles away from home), I just went crazy. We didn’t talk about it. I just went crazy and we broke up. For the best, you know, long term, but still, Kurt and Blaine handled things probably a little better than your average high-school couple.
Favourite things? The look Mike Chang gave Blaine when Kurt was singing “I Have Nothing”. They’ve obviously been talking about it, and Mike was probably the voice of reason and Blaine’s just uninterested in getting over it that quickly.
I enjoyed the Will storyline actually. Because as much as he created this dubious safe space that changed the lives of his students, you can’t create a space like that and not be changed by it yourself. I particularly appreciated his choice of wedding venue that would have squicked out most people and how calm Emma remained as she explained how completely insane his plan was.
I’m not sold on Teen Jesus just yet, but I do like that the only thing he did for the girl in the wheelchair is show her she’s capable of giving him a boner.
