When the wedding scenes in the ‘Glee’ episode ‘I Do’ first start, we see Kurt making out with somebody, and who it is wasn’t immediately obvious. It could have been the cutie from NYADA or Blaine. It ended up being Blaine, and they actually got to kiss over once by a little bit. This undoubtedly thrilled all the Klaine fans out there because it hinted toward a reunion, was more than a moment of actual coupling screen time, and was just fun until their tryst was interrupted by Mercedes.
During the party after the non-wedding, Klaine performed a duet of “I Just Can’t Get Enough” which was totally wonderful. After the Les Mis diva off between Kurt and Rachel last week, I was ready to scream if Chris Colfer sang one more slow, sorrowful show tune. I know the young man has pipes, but I think they are better utilized when he is able to have more fun with his voice or cry sing like in “Blackbird” or “I Want to Hold Your Hand.”
During the duet Tina was having a purple cow on the edge of the dance floor and she tore into Kurt with a funny, brief monologue outlining his sins against Blaine when he walked by. When she did this, Kurt replied,
The moment we all saw coming is finally here. You’re a hag. You’re hagged out. You’re in love with Blaine. and it’s creepy. Stop.
While it was funny to have Kurt take Tina down a peg or two and then ask her, “Did you Vaporape my ex-boyfriend,” Tina did have some valid points about him running off and leaving Blaine emotionally vulnerable. This point was further illustrated by Kurt’s indifferent attitude toward Blaine after they hooked up in an upstairs hotel room after the reception. While Blaine attempted to resolidify their couple standing, or at the very least acknowledge that the magic was back, Kurt merely dressed and sashayed away looking a bit too smug for comfort.
Ultimately, Blaine felt comfortable cheating because Kurt abandoned him for the glitz of his Vogue.com internship, and now Kurt has used Blaine for a casual hook-up when he knew Blaine was looking for more. In a score book of good and bad, Kurt is a few furlongs in front of Blaine on the badness scale. It will be interesting to see whether or not the writers of ‘Glee’ feel forced to keep these two a couple based on fan demand, because there seems to be little there to sustain a relationship on long-term.
