1. He found his way out of the closet, which pissed off both Fox and Glee. It broke all the rules the other characters had to sign on for. No way I believe all the other Glee actors are straight. No way I don’t believe they all helped Chris (as did Chelsea Handler) so he would not be stuck dating PR selected starlets and talking about his “dream girl” in Teen mags. It also made Chris a little bit bullet-proof. They couldn’t hold it over his head that they would ruin his career by telling his secrets. They couldn’t force him into a compromise position for contract bargaining purposes.. 2. Against great odds, Chris became a gay icon, a teenage dream for the outcasts, a breakout star, and more beloved and celebrated than Ryan Murphy could ever hope to be, so, jealous. Ryan made Kurt IN HIS IMAGE, and Chris just took over and made Kurt HIS. That pisses Ryan royally. He wanted Kurt to make HIM more popular and accepted and beloved, but Chris took Kurt and made him something else—a character who changed people’s minds about acceptance. He changed society because we could love Kurt, and empathise with him. NO ONE can do that with Ryan Murphy. Brad is his bitch, Ian is his toady. He taints them all with his ass-holery. 3. Chris came from nothing, while Darren’s background, education, old money showbiz connected family, charm, and intelligence made him the favorite when he blew up so big. He’s another Clooney, in a way. Chris is all self-made, and fiercely independent. He hates PR, doesn’t kiss ass, doesn’t ask for (or get) many favors, he earns his own way, creates his own opportunities and power connections (Elton John, Madonna, Oprah, Whoopie) separate from RIB. Stephen King loves him. Dave Grohl loves him. John Green loves him. Seth Rogan and Jimmy Fallon love him. Rolling Stone and Esquire Magazine love him. Time 100 loves him. Amy Pohler and Tina Fey love him. They all also RESPECT him. They don’t give a shit about RIB. Darren is a company man. He knows who signs his paycheck, and who he needs to kiss up to for his career, and what he needs to do to get ahead. He may hate it, (or he may not, although I think he does hate a good bit of it), but he does it, because that is old-school Hollyweird. The ones in power have their dark secrets, and they want anyone underneath them and coming along after them to have dark secrets, too, to keep everyone in their place until they have earned the right to move up. And Darren knows many folks would love to be in his place, so he carries on, determined not to lose out
If Chris is that popular WHY they want to destroy his character. Their love for Darren is so big that they need to humiliate Chris and Kurt JUST to make Darren and Blaine better?? Is really how FOX do things. I need answers for this.
WHAT Chris has done to attract SO MUCH hate from writers.
I M SCREAM ING
I will accept no other outcome. Making this canon right now.
Do you think we should all tweet Ryan Murphy with -
Thankyou for breaking up Klaine. Please keep them that way.
Just joking. Because I do think we should leave the obnoxious tweeting to the Klainers.
Just read mj’s spoilers - have to admit that the part where I vomited a little bit in my mouth wasn’t Blaine and Karofsky calling each other ‘Yogi Bear’ and ‘Boo Boo’.
It was the part where Kurt, after months apart, changes his mind and goes back to Lima and tries to get Blaine back.
The only reason that Kurt would possibly do that would be misguided nostalgia brought on by a bout of loneliness… and a lot of vodka. Much like the reasons he accepted Blaine’s proposal in the first place.
However, in the Glee universe, this means that we get a drawn out agonizing series of episodes where Blaine struggles with his feelings before eventually dumping Dave (who takes this manfully and selflessly, with the knowledge that he can’t stand between ‘soulmates’ - or perhaps he even dumps Blaine selflessly because he can’t stand between ‘soulmates’), and gets back together with Kurt, who has been standing on the sidelines waiting (quietly, and with absolutely no singing).
Klainers you really don’t need to worry.
Kurt and Blaine will eventually get married and continue to argue in blissful toxicity.
So, all 1000 of you will get what you want and Glee will get the ratings it deserves.
P.S. I find that I’m at the point of hoping for at least a little fling between Kurt and the gay footballing student - I suppose technically Kurt’s not a teacher?
Yep, mte. I actually cried a little about this. I thought the monologue with the pigeons at the end of S5 was humiliating enough but is has crushed my soul. S6 is literally my most dreaded scenario coming to life, and entirely predictable too: Kurt chases after a Blaine who is given the opportunity to shine and have another relationship; Kurt pines, doesn’t sing except perhaps about his love for Blaine; proposes, followed by Kledding entirely on Blaine’s terms.
This is also gonna be a hot mess when it airs because the K(B)lainers will immediately jump all over Kurt and blame him for ‘making’ Blaine flunk out of NYADA.
Which is all totally on Blaine, and is yet another insight into the way his character works. Because the majority of other people in the world can cope with their partner’s dumping them (or even dying) and still manage to function at school and at work, as adults. In fact, when Blaine cheated on Kurt, Kurt still managed to work at Vogue and get back into NYADA.
And if the reason for Blaine flunking is that he spirals into a deep depression, that is not Blaine’s fault, nor is it Kurt’s. However, it is something for which Blaine should get professional help - and not get back together with the person involved with the event that triggered the episode. They are not healthy for each other, so Glee, please stop slamming it down our throats that they are ‘meant to be together’.
What the spoilers underline once again, imo, is the unfair double standard RIB keep adopting for Kurt and Blaine, whereby one is alllowed to experience what young people their age should indeed experience (sex with more than one person, more than one relationshship), and the other - Kurt Hummel, to be exact - is not.
And that’s not only unfair and unequal, it’s terribly sad, too.
It is a horrible double standard, and I feel like it also enforces the idea that Blaine is a “alpha gay.” He’s the one everyone should desire, and chase after because he is such a catch, while Kurt is….just Kurt, who always be “less than” Blaine or anyone else really, even thought that’s not the case.
Kurt is always being punished by the narrative for expressing any interest in other men, like with Cody or even talking to Chandler made him a cheater (and that’s another issue, Kurt’s integrity and “virtue” is always in question, while Blaine’s isn’t even after he cheated. See also how the Klainers referred to Kurt as a slut or a whore for going after Cody when he was single) and of course Adam, and Elliot were taken away.
I’ve always seen a lot of parallels between Klaine and the Emma/Will relationship. Due to Glee’s rampant effemiophobia, and sexism (plus their need to put Blaine and Kurt into heteronormative roles), Kurt is being forced into Emma’s position. He’s supposed to be chaste and wait for his man to make up his mind, and support him no matter the cost to his dignity or dreams.
Even though its obvious that if Kurt stayed in NYADA, he would have his pick of men.
Unless told otherwise I will assume that in the six months of the breakup he fucks his way through NYADA. I’ll have that, at least.
Because I do.Totally in character too.
And then compare that spineless crybaby to Kurt who lived on Ambien after Blaine cheated, found out his father had cancer, but still managed to not only get into NYADA and keep up with his classes, but also had to work at Vogue while trying to make ends meet in New York.
Alpha gay my ass.
Seriously? Glee. You have thirteen fucking episodes left, is it really that hard to give the two fans you have left a season they might fucking enjoy?
Because I guarantee that a season comprised of Blaine dating Karofsky, Kurt doing nothing but chasing after Blaine and playing assistant to Rachel, and Rachel being a has-been burnout a year out of high school is going to appeal to abso-fucking nobody.
