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 we got so much of the queers of New York (especially Dani and Elliott) that we can forgive Kurt got short shrift. At least we also got some talk of kinky superhero clubs. You win some, you lose.

5. Hey, Dani Still Exists! Demi Lovato is vastly underused on Glee, but at least we know Dani and Santana are still going strong . She also sports a tux in the best queer trio band ever, One Three Hill. Speaking of which…

3. “New Best Gay” Smackdown. Elliot is the voice of sanity on Glee. He may enjoy rocking out with his new roomie Rachel, but he’s not going to let her go around calling him a “Best Gay” like he’s a pet.

We love you, Elliott Gilbert—we wish you could stay forever.

2. Eww, Heterosexuals. That’s basically Blaine’s reaction to walking in on Tina and Sam making out. To be fair, Sam was being totally creepy, talks about Tina’s boobs so much. Plus there’s the specter of their old love triangle—Blaine’s old crush on Sam, Tina’s old crush on Blaine, etc. It makes perfect sense for these two kids to get together, but it was definitely way too much for our little gold-star gay.

1. Creepy Fetish Clubs. It was a throwaway line, but we cherish Blaine pondering a R-rated future for his Nightbird costume. Blaine Anderson, your New York Gay future is bright.

BONUS: We get Sam in cheerleader drag for his, Blaine and Tina’s rendition of “Don’t You Forget About Me” by Simple Minds.
