We know when you ask “What’s so gay about Glee?” the obvious answer is “everything.” But we’re here to break down the queerest bits of Glee into bit-sized morsels for your enjoyment. Think of us as your gay cheat sheet to Glee fandom.
This week Glee goes superhero with Dynamic Duets, featuring the kids exploring their true and secret identities. It’s also the first Warbler appearance all season, so we’ve got all sorts of uniforms to swoon over.
1. Superhero Tights. There’s really nothing gayer than superheros and secret identities, and this episode is chock-full of them — from Ryder and Jake pulling off their Clark Kent costumes to reveal spandex Mega Studs outfits to Blaine fluttering up and down the hallways in his Nightbird costume (a not to the grown up version of his original superhero Kitten Boy outfit — transitioning from Robin to Nightwing.)
2. Blaine’s Big Gay Hookup. We finally get a blurry glimpse of Eli C and a little bit more clarity about what exactly happened (it required Blaine to put his shirt back on at least). And yep, it’s still heartbreaking.
3. Um, what is the ship name for Kitty and Marley? Cause we’re on it. We know it’s probably super messed up especially with all this forced bulimia undercurrent, but they looked so hot together during “Holding Out For A Hero” that we can’t help it.
4. Raspberry Hair Gel. Brittney’s throwaway line about Blaine’s hair gel smell combined with Finn’s joking about Blaine being the most important part of making the group “gel” at McKinely. But where do you even get raspberry hair gel?
5. THE WARBLERS ARE BACK. Our favorite private school dreamboats. Even if they continue to be a little evil, or at least really susceptible to evil leadership, we can’t help but swoon every time we see them. Our only disappointment is a new leader who isn’t even remotely bicurious. We think enough time spent at Dalton could change that…
