I love that about him too. For him it doesn't matter if he performs for the creme de la creme of New York's society, at Nationals, in NYADA or at a retirement home: he is just as enthusiastic and motivated.

Just today I was thinking of the band's first gig, when only 1 or 2 costumers showed up. The lack of an audience was disappointing for Kurt but he performed anyway, giving it the best he had, and it even paid off.

From TV Equals:

Here: http://www.tvequals.com/2014/04/29/glee-season-5-review-back-plan/

Maybe when this season is over that’ll be the theme that runs through – happy endings are just the beginning of more troubles and strife down the road.

Which is also what’s happening to Kurt and Blaine, who began the season with a romantic engagement and are now constantly on the brink of self-imploding. I’ve thought this for a while, that Blaine is essentially a male version of Rachel, with things simply handed to him over others simply because he’s Blaine Anderson, and that has been causing problems for his relationship at every turn. Will he heed Shirley McClain’s warning and actually break things off with Kurt for fear of settling? Probably not, at least not permanently, but that doesn’t eradicate the fact that the show brought it up in a way that makes the move feel entirely plausible.

Two weeks ago, Blaine said that, for the first time in his life, he felt like he was losing, and that speaks volumes. His singling out makes perfect sense both because of Darren Criss’ talent and with how we’ve seen characters react to Blaine in the past, and it’s also true that his love for Kurt may actually be getting in the way. While Kurt seems genuinely happy for his fiancé when good things happen, we’ve never really witnessed the same from Blaine, with him only happy and content in the relationship when he’s the superior one. When Kurt got the Vogue internship, he cheated and, when he started to get attention at school, he had to be coddled back to security.

It’s a ticking time bomb and, as big of a shipper as I am, their problems are one of the best and bravest things this season of brave decisions and overcome circumstances has introduced. Of course, there are still a lot of messy elements that need to either be cut off or figured out, such as Mercedes’ implausible record deal, Sam’ lack of an arc and, now, the prospect of losing Santana. But this is Glee, and my unconditional adoration for the show has the power to drone out all of the weaker elements and make room for the magic this show can so often evoke. As a fresh, darker mini-arc for these characters, I’m completely on board.


Even if the reviewer is a Klaine shipper, at least it is nice to see it worded in a critic review and not just by the viewers in the forums.

I really liked this episode! I was happy to see Blaine getting something for once, and it was all thanks to Kurt! Kurt is such a good accessory to Blaine's life! Kurt makes Blaine's life so much better, and Blaine is lucky to have such a gem in his life! Kurt was amazing during SOML!

I have so many things to say in response to this, but I don't really have the energy or time to do so.

Agree, maybe the poster is watching an A/U version of Glee, Blaine always win. This is the only thing I have to say about this.

I don't see the problem with me liking Blaine with Kurt. Kurt makes Blaine's life better and Blaine makes Kurt's life WAY better than what it was like without him in his life. Plus, thanks to Blaine, Kurt gets to sing more duets with him now.

At the end of the day, in the glee world Kurt is successful, happy, and helpful to all his friends. He really helped Blaine achieve a lot in this episode, and that's what a good fiance would do for his lover. Kurt helped Blaine achieve greatness, a greatness that Blaine always wanted and without his fiance he'd have never gotten it. Blaine needs Kurt, and Kurt needs Blaine. They were made for each other, and this episode showed that they're both equals. I loved this episode.

You liking Blaine with Kurt is not the problem here. I just have a hard time imagining any Kurt fan being happy that Kurt is an accessory to Blaine's life.

I'm stopping our conversation here; so don't take it amiss if I don't respond anymore.

Baiting plain and simple. 

It's one thing to like Blaine, which I'm OK with that. Different strokes and all.   But denying that Blaine wins more than anyone not named Rachel is an exercise in trolling. 

It's like saying, "I"m glad for once Rachel gets songs to sing".   coool

Thought that was who it was.

Wow, it must be getting so empty over there lately.

It will even more so when Season 6 starts.

Might start hearing crickets.  Razz

I see there has been a surreal convo start here this morning, but taking this back to reality: I do see sometimes people being very serious about the fact that Kurt should not be anything else but a glorified extra in the big Blaine story. And that Kurt seemes to be very happy with the situation he's in.

I feel it's safe to say here, that for most of us Kurt has not been "fine" for a long time. For me Chris's acting makes that quite obvious. Perhaps his self worth issues have been on the positive side for the very few moments in these past episodes and he's began noticing his own strenghts, but it took only one hint from Blaine jerking of to other, more socially acceptable handsome, guys to get Kurt very upset.

I'm just glad that he's allowed for at least a moment to say back and enjoy the NYADA fame.
