Kurt is still ignoring Blaine on the phone to focus on his new job, making Blaine angry. After a song where we see Blaine is getting flirty messages from a mystery sexter named Eli C., Blaine flies to New York to surprise Kurt. He gives an intense performance of “Teenage Dream” that leaves him in tears, causing Kurt to ask why he’s so emotional. That’s when we learn Blaine cheated on Kurt.
And I say “NO!” This is even worse than the Finn stuff, because it is completely unbelievable and out of character. Blaine has been the perfect boyfriend from day one, and this bombshell totally assassinates his character (if you want proof, just check out fan reaction to Owen Hunt last season on Grey’s Anatomy when they did this exact same stunt). Ryan Murphy just took a giant dump on Blaine, and all for the sole purpose of making Kurt come out smelling like roses, even though he’s been the one to blame for the past two episodes.
Sure, Blaine has been feeling lonely, but he’s only been apart from Kurt for a month or a month and a half at the most, and Blaine is the one who told Kurt to leave. Also, even though Blaine flirted with Sebastian in the past, he never acted on it, instead professing his true love for Kurt. I just don’t buy that he could’ve cheated on Kurt so quickly and so easily.
I’m disgusted not by Blaine’s actions, but by Murphy for such a terrible plot twist designed solely to make sure his beloved Kurt doesn’t seem like the bad guy in this break-up. The way this episode blatantly and offensively makes Rachel and Kurt look like the heroic victims to the detriment of Finn and Blaine is just ridiculous.
Anyway, there’s lots of crying about how sorry Blaine is, but he goes home the next day without really resolving anything. Blaine later sends Kurt an “I’m Sorry” bouquet, but Kurt drops the card in the trash. Does that count as a break-up? Whatever it is, it certainly means Blaine will never be looked at the same way by the viewers again. I’m curious to see how Glee can possibly try to redeem Blaine for this transgression.
