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.
Make-overs run rampant this episode, with Artie and Blaine coaching Britt and Sam into campaign running mates, Kurt and Rachel finding new ambitions and styles in New York, and ever Schue looking for new inspirations and goals back in Ohio. We know that doesn’t sound too gay, but did we mention there’s also shirtless Chord Overstreet and random kitten eared superheroes too?
1. Kurt and Blaine’s Skype dates. The second one of the episode was a bit heartbreaking, but the first was definitely sweet. Who doesn’t love hate-watching Treme?
2. Blam. The Blaine-Sam ticket for student council was a bonding moment for gay and straight bros (is Blaine really a bro Sam? Really?) and even brought us two shirtless Chord Overstreet moments. If Obama could bring us two shirtless Chord Overstreet moments we think he’d have the election sewn up.
3. Sarah Jessica Parker. Everyone’s favorite City girl is now Kurt’s Vogue mentor. She sings, she dances, she wears impeccable fashion. What’s not to love about Glee’s newest addition? We vote for a Kurt and SJP spin off.
4. Blaine’s Kitten Ears. After seeing some of Ryan Murphy’s Twitpics we knew Blaine Anderson as a kitten-ear wearing Robin was forthcoming, but we thought maybe there’s be some explanation. No dice. Blaine just felt like his inner superhero sidekick was a kitten boy. Not that we’re complaining….
5. Break-Up Foreshadowing? Kurt and Blaine don’t seem to be communicating very well over the distance. Britt looked a little too comfy with Sam by the end of the episode. We know the next episode if titled “The Break-Up” but our heart can’t take the possible demise of our favorite queer unions.
