    Really interested in seeing why Blaine would wear his hair like Darren does. I LOVE the curls!

  • Anonymous

    I like Darren’s natural curls too. Its his natural hair I think. His Blaine hair seems makes him look mature and serious. His curls makes him look the opposite.  

  • Axxxel

    Yeah for Blaine with curls…it makes him look more geekish and goofier. Every time I see a picture of Darren Criss being interviewed while having his curls… I always felt that it would make Blaine more matchable with Kurt. And as you pointed out, he would look much younger. 
     
    Samuel Larson getting rid of his dreads ? Oh no !!! He would still look handsome though…

  • Axxxel

    Would they sing Adam Lambert’s new song “Chokehold” ?? Wishful thinking..
    Yeah a Puck-centered episode !!  Missed him badassness soo much and I am not even a fan of Puck. Next episode… Tina Tina Tina…

  • Axxxel

    I still think that the sweetest “couple” with the best chemistry on Glee is “Kurchel” (Kurt/Rachel)…

  • Anonymous

    Rachel and Kurt is sweet but Kurt and Mercedes had chemistry as well and I miss them. 

  • http://twitter.com/starfishy2000 starfishy2000

    Yes, Darren’s hair is naturally curly. Just do a google image search…..he used to wear it longer, before GLEE.

  • Axxxel

    oooohhh yeeesssss…. I miss them soooooo much too !!  Kurtcedes… Thank goodness for the God Squad.  I think Mercedes is one of the reasons why Kurt went to the God Squad…Still remember how she tried to comfort him in “Grilled Cheesus” with two (!!) songs.

    Maybe the writers did not know what to do with Kurtcedes. At first I hoped that with Samcedes, there might be some double dating with Klaine.

    Maybe there might be some mutual sharing and advising about boyfriends… Or some shared experience with  Alex’s character from the Glee project. But Alex’s character will be with Vocal Adrenaline :-(  .

  • Anonymous

    Yeah, I think when Kurt got so popular, he kinda became a lead together with Finn and Rachel and as such, had more scenes with them. Not that I’m complaining. I wonder where Mercedes will be after graduation. She’s not the broadway type but she should be doing something in music as well.

  • Axxxel

    Am not complaining either about the growth in Kurt’s role.

    Mercedes…hhmmm… she has no clue where to go… She is a diva but lacks the drive of Rachel.

    This is cheesy but maybe the writers should imitate Amber’s real life and let Mercedes go on a reality show. Or become the guest singer for the Warblers. I totally see her sing at graduation day and maybe her singing will be put in Youtube and she gets discovered… or get a job on a cruise ship together with Sam Evans. Or she will be the assistant coach of Vocal Adrenaline.
    Or she may end up like Mike’s mother, someone who did not pursue her artistic dreams at all…but ends up singing the whole time while doing chores.

  • Axxxel

    In my dreams sobbing together with Rachel and Kurt at the lockers… Is this the Kurt’s storyline that fans wont like as Chris Colfer mentioned in an earlier interview  ? *sob again* But then again,there is still hope for an internship with Vogue … or an internship to help Burt in congress…

  • Anonymous

    I think you could be right. Odds are Kurt won’t get in and Cry is Rachel’s break up with Finn. 

  • Anonymous

    do we know was Chris resigned for next year?

  • Axxxel

    There has been confirmation that Chris Colfer (Kurt), Lea Michele (Rachel) and Cory Monteith (Finn) will be back in Season 4. but no confirmation about the rest of the “graduating cast” like Amber Riley (Mercedes), Harry Schum (Mike), Mark Salling (Puck) and Naya Rivera (Santana).

    But I cannot see Chris Colfer in Season 5….is there is a Season 5… Hope the Glee Project 2 will get some great actors for Glee. Fingers crossed.

  • Axxxel

    Wah, if that happens… poor Rachel… Before Klaine even started, they already kind of said that Klaine  would be maybe like a “when Harry meet Sally ” story. But deep in my heart, I always thought that Finchel was doomed, but they will be close friends forever.

  • Anonymous

    I never imagined Kurt as the Broadway type in the first place. I always thought Chris’s vision of Kurt as a fashion editor is more in line with the character. 

    Rachel has only one goal in life. She’s not going to give it up for Finn. She’ll end up hating him if she does. Unless Finn finds something for himself in NY, comprising for the sake of Rachel’s ambition will spell doom.  

    I can’t remember when Harry met Sally. Did they end up together in the end?

  • Laura Bloomingdale

    What makes you think Finn and Rachel break up?

  • http://twitter.com/KariannHart Kariann Hart

    I agree, Rachel is not going to give up the opportunity for career success to be married to Finn.  Moving to California – no way.  I don’t think he’ll like being in her shadow either.

    I think Glee should have recruited one Idol for each of it’s seasons.  Maybe DeAndre can be Sam’s cousin?  Oh wait…he’s getting his dreads cut.  *sob sob*

  • Axxxel

    Me neiter. I never figured Kurt on Broadway… but I can be wrong. I also notice that none of the other kids have a back up plan.

    Rachel might have a problem after fixing the elections in favor of Kurt.

    “Harry met Sally”… yeah, it was a loooong process but after years and years of friendship and Harry even get married and divorced with someone else, eventually Harry marries Sally and they were happy ever after. That is why I think Klaine will break up, maybe Kurt (and Blaine) will  go with someone else but in the end of Season 4, they will be a couple again (Blaine’s senior prom ??) and will be happy ever after.

  • Axxxel

    I agree with you partially but maybe jennyI2 has that impression because the crying scene involves Rachel and Kurt and NOT Rachel and Finn.

    It would be funny though isn’t it… All along we imagined a trio Rachel-Kurt-Finn in New York…. and maybe it all would end up with Rachel-Finn-Puck in the West Coast. No no cannot, Rachel belongs in New York…

  • Axxxel

    Sobbing with you about Joe Hart’s dreads… Blaine’s curls at the prom will be my consolation prize.

    If Glee would recruit one American Idol hopeful, it should be Heejun… but still hoping for Adam Lambert, playing the assistant of the coach of Vocal Adrenaline.

  • Anonymous

    Also because the song Cry is a break up song. But I could be wrong. 

  • Axxxel

    Tinchel is trending…just because of one hallway scene tweeted by Lea (Rachel) on 13 Apr..yeah, it is about time there are  storylines for  Tina.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_REOIONSEAN5RAAWMZU3MKTYCC4 Real American

    Why can’t Mercedes pursue a career as singer and perfomring artist? Rachel isn’t the only talented one….certainly she’s more versatile than Rachel, who focuses so much on Broadway…Why don’t we treat Mercedes as a real character???

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_REOIONSEAN5RAAWMZU3MKTYCC4 Real American

    That was a crap move for Glee to have Kurt drop her best friend for Rachel, solely due to the character’s popularity.  The Rachel/Kurt relationship is very forced……Mercedes could be a recording artist, just like Amber Jones, duh! There’s more the to life than Broadway….It’s not just all about Rachel…other people exist on the show….

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_REOIONSEAN5RAAWMZU3MKTYCC4 Real American

    They are all coming back….We know that Kurt, Rachel and Finn cannot carry an entire narrative in NYC….They need more characters to do that in NYC

  • Axxxel

    Unfortunately one way to get a character more into the spotlight, you have to couple them with one of the main character. 
    That is what they are trying to do with Tina now… Coupling her to Rachel…  

    Still, I don’t really think that the Kurt/Rachel friendship is forced. 
    They only became friends AFTER  Kurt went to the other school Dalton  and it continued because of their love for Broadway.

    I think Kurt cannot really share  with another Glee clubber  his love for theater and more classic showtunes. Blaine also loves theater but he is more into pop. And now Rachel is engaged to his stepbrother…

  • Axxxel

    With the current cast of Glee it is already difficult to create good storylines for all of them. The cast is getting too big and we cannot keep on focusing on the graduating seniors.
     
    The Glee TV/internet audience is also getting older and may have other things to do than watch Glee. They will be hopefully replaced by a newer generation of Glee audience who will feel more attached to this next generation of Glee.

    Who  will be left in Glee ? I notice that Sam Evans and Britney Pears are not in the graduation promotion portrait which features 8 seniors. Blaine, Tina and Artie are juniors. Sugar undetermined… Then there is Rory and Joe Hart. So we have already 8 people. The Glee club needs 12 people.  Some people may come from the Glee Project 2 or from normal auditions.

    Those seniors (Kurt, Mike, Mercedes, Santana) who have love connections with juniors might survive a bit longer… but I think that they will softly fade into the background as well and become like that nameless pianoman.

  • Axxxel

    All hopes for Kurt/Mercedes are on the Saturday Night Glee-ver episode when they start to interact with Wade (Alex from Glee project).

    I think the writers write about what they know best… the trials and tribulations of the white men (straight and gay). But the writers also write for what they think the Glee audience loves most : cute white boys.

    Glee did try to be “more ethnic” with “the Spanish teacher” and “Asian F” with varied succes. They did not explore the Asian side of Blaine though and I am still bumped that the love story of Mercedes and Shane is not really explored. Maybe they should have hired writers who really know about the feelings and trials and tribulations of a black girl.

  • Anonymous

    Yup. I too feel like the those graduating will be in Season 4 if only to ‘pass the baton/ tourch?’ (not sure if that’s the correct expression.) so that the viewers can let them go gradually. Then they will fade away. 

    I’ll stick around after that for Blaine and maybe Joe. 

  • Axxxel

    Correct !! Pass the torch !!
    Season 4 ? I would stick around for Tina, Joe Hart and Blaine… especially if he keeps his curls LOL…

  • http://twitter.com/KariannHart Kariann Hart

    Entertainment wise, this season has been terrific with the singing AND dancing!  I have thoroughly enjoyed most of the plot lines except one.  It has become a guilty pleasure.

  • Axxxel

    Seems that the Glee club AND the Warblers have improved their dancing a lot ! Much fun to watch.

    Yeah I also like most of  the storylines except two:

    – Shelby/18 year old Puck romance … until I read on the website about the recent  scandal of an affair between  a female head of  cheerleaders who is/was (?) also a teacher, with a male high school senior.

    – Kurt  helping  Karofksy post -suicide attempt (sorry, as a fan it is not easy to forgive and forget, even for a fictional character).

  • http://twitter.com/gigibdoo Gigi W Choy

    Finn yelling at Quinn to stand up is definitely not ok. Is he always going to ruin prom in some way? I agree with the others, Rachel is most definitely going to get into NYADA, while Kurt is accepted into a prestigious fashion design school. I really do hope that Rachel will sing “Cry” for her audition due to a breakup with Finn. I simply cannot stand Finn being selfish and making it seem like Rachel does not care about him at all.

  • Anonymous

    I agree with the others, Rachel is most definitely going to get into
    NYADA, while Kurt is accepted into a prestigious fashion design school.

      I think Kurt gets in and Rachel chokes–maybe her guilt over leaving Finn, or making him unhappy in some way affects her performance.

    Later, she’ll get a second chance and they will both head off to NYADA together anyway.

  • Axxxel

    Finn shouting and things…will he get ushered out of the prom again ?  My guess for prom queen : Quinn ,  prom king : Puck. And they dance and do other things… and forgot to use protection. Back to square one.

    Some write that Rachel disciplinary note in her record may cost her NYADA and that Kurt will give his place to her. I still see Kurt in Kurtain, but that is just me. I thought there was another school in New York that also has musical theater in his progra. Maybe they  both decide to go there.

  • Louisa Moon

    Samuel didn’t really cut his dreads.  Chord posted a picture with Samuel’s face on Taylor Lautner’s head as a joke.  There are tons of pics of Samuel with his dreads taken since then.

  • Axxxel

    I guess Puck was choked and maybe physically abused and that made him a bully.

  • http://twitter.com/ShanaeWilliams5 Shanae Williams

    Finn’s trying to be encouraging because Quinn’s scared to try to walk again. Rachel will choke because she can’t handle the pressure, not because of Finn. And I can’t stand Rachel because she actually has never cared about any of Finn’s problems. Every time he tries to talk to her about them, she turns it around so they’re talking about her. Maybe if she listened to him for once, he’d feel like she cares.

  • Axxxel

    So happy to see Kurtcedes during Saturday Night Glee-ver… Thank you Glee.. 

  • Anonymous

    The Rain in Spain! Love that song. Betting its Kurt’s Nyada audition song. 

  • Axxxel

    That song of “My fair lady” ? ooh Kurt is so going to ruin his chances…

  • Axxxel

    On second thoughts… The victim of domestic violence… Coach Beiste ? Oh no…..
    People might not really expect her because she is physically not really someone who could be a victim, but this reminds me of some story on internet of a female police officer who also was a victim of domestic violence… (husband was not a police officer).

    The song that’s most likely for Kurt’s audition will be I’m Not the Boy Next Door and it’s an amazing number. Hugh Jackman played the role on Broadway in The Boy From Oz. Besides, the My Fair Lady song is meant for three people and it’s a great number, but not for an audition.

    Thank goodness the” Rain in Spain” is NOT Kurt’s song !!

    So fun to see Blaine rocking it out with the Bro’s !! And Rory is back ! Yeah… Why I am so happy about characters that are not really my favorites ?
    Maybe because I love to see how my favorites are headbanging and rocking it out !! Yeah for Joe Hart and Sam Evans !! Yeah for some rock !!

    Great relief to hear that. You are right… The rain in Spain is sung by all the Glee males (save Kurt)… according to the promo… pheww thank goodness.

    Haha! I’m happy to be totally wrong!. Boy Next Door was perfect. I wonder why there is a Blaine boxing scene. The only time he boxes is when he is angry or frustrated.

    oh oh… Kurt related withdrawal effects ? Maybe it will be the way I will be feeling in 2014, when Kurt is totally out of the Glee picture …. sigh…

    Whoopi is apparently filming the Nationals episode. Whoever gets into NYADA and whoever doesn’t, maybe Whoopi’s character goes to Nationals to watch them perform, changes her mind, and they both get in? Gratuitous Blaine boxing scene would have made sense in last week’s episode with Kurt’s “cheating.” Who makes him mad this time?

    Kurt is in New York and Blaine is in Lima…. no scheduled activities with both of them for the time being… Frustration, frustration…
