DARREN CRISS: I’ve loved a lot of the outfits though, some sweaters and jackets that I especially think, “man, I would have bought this for myself had I seen it outside of work.” I also tend to be partial towards the more comfortable ones. (x)
Oh, oh, I just realized something big about this episode and Klaine. What Blaine described in the resolution to his fight with Kurt is basically that he’s been feeling emasculated. He feels unattractive, unworthy, and undesirable. On the surface, that’s all about his weight gain, especially because it happens at the same time that Kurt looks stronger than ever and is getting a lot of attention for it. But if you look a little deeper, what does Blaine actually say? “I guess it started with when we first met and you came to Dalton to get away from Karofsky and I wanted to help you through that." And then later "I loved the way that felt. I loved it. I loved being able to protect you.”
Why’s that important? Because of what happened in the last episode. Kurt was beaten up and almost killed and Blaine wasn’t there to protect him. And when I started thinking about all the seemingly random or slightly out of character things Blaine did in this episode in that context, it made much more sense. He’s having a crisis of confidence because he couldn’t do the one fundamental thing that he wants to do, that he’s always wanted to do: to protect Kurt, the love of his life. To see Kurt be so strong, even in the face of what happened to him, probably just made Blaine just doubt his own abilities even more and whether he was the right person for Kurt anymore. Not because Blaine wants anything other to be with Kurt forever, but because, as he says “I’m just so scared that you’re going to keep changing and keep getting stronger and one day you’re going to wake up and you’re going to realize ‘I don’t love him anymore.’” Blaine worries that Kurt needs someone stronger than him, and thankfully Kurt tells him that’s not what he needs at all.
omg Mercedes sees a million romantic candles all over every surface of the apartment, and immediately thinks GOD DAMNIT BLAINE NOT AGAIN.
…and one day, you’re gonna wake up and realize that "I don’t love him anymore."

Oh my god but Blaine actually talking about his feelings and continuity and his hero complex and wanting to help and not wanting help for himself.
This is fucking amazing.
I have to drink five pints of hot coconut water every day, with a little garlic salt, some splenda, and a splash of hot sauce, and then you basically jog until you hallucinate.
