Tonight on Glee: We’ve finally made it to New York, domestic!Klaine is the best thing to ever happen to me, and praise whatever deity you follow because Chord Overstreet finally cut his hair. A new, fun show has taken over Glee’s time slot and I’m a big fan already.
We’ve time jumped a little, as expected, because Glee just won’t give me the summer season I so desperately want, so it’s fall. Rachel has been doing pre-opening tours for Funny Girl and they’re so appreciative of her hard work that they’ve given her a 24/7 town car. Damn, girl. She starts off “Downtown” from inside the car. Kurt emerges from the subway, finds Blaine picking up coffee for both of them, and the pair meet up with Artie and Sam in Washington Square Park so they can look all New York cute and then incredulous when Rachel shows up in her fancy car. The new, pared down cast all sound fantastic together and I hope we continue to get group numbers that just feature them being carefree happy friends living their dreams. What a concept for a show called Glee!
Blaine wakes up early to make breakfast in bed for Kurt, which he has apparently been doing for months, but Kurt wakes up and spoils it. Blaine is in a tank top and boxers and patent leather loafers. He puts on shoes before pants. He is still enamored with getting to see Kurt all the time, and when Kurt asks if they’re turning into an old married couple, he says “On the contrary” and launches into “You Make Me Feel So Young” while the pair have the most adorable domestic montage in the history of the world.
Blaine puts toothpaste on Kurt’s toothbrush! Kurt picks out Blaine’s clothes! They dance! They pillow fight! They shop! They touch more in a two minute performance than they have in the entirety of the series! Yep, I’m totally on board with this new Glee. Side note, can we please have more jazzy numbers where Darren Criss sings in his lower range? Because I’m swooning as much as Kurt is.
Kurt ends the number by pushing Blaine onto the couch and climbing on board, but they’re interrupted by Sam, who has apparently worn out his couch surfing welcome in the loft.
Artie is having mobility trouble, and the cherry on top comes in the form of getting mugged by a guy on crutches.
