"Of course, now we know that the Lima/Bushwick portal is held together with a psychic connection between Kurt and Blaine and this golden hula hoop they pass back and forth in their imaginations, so that’s something."

an attempt to figure out where Kurt is since the writers don’t feel the need to let him express it:
this is basically the only way i can reconcile the past two eps. i think part of the problem is also that in 4.14 his denial was played for laughs, and i think most people were like “lol kurt you don’t even believe that!” so now it’s like oh, wait, he DID believe that? it’s the only explanation that really works for me, but i still think it was poorly handled, and jfc yes kurt needs to talk to someone, and HE needs to be the one talking. chris is a terrific actor but i shouldn’t have to constantly be relying on every twitch of his facial muscles to figure out wtf is actually going on in kurt’s beautifully-coiffed little head.
this is exactly what I was trying to express last night. the lack of context just completely abandoned the (very beautiful and emotionally portrayed) CWM moment as this island of prettiness in a sea of Kurt confusion. everything was happening at him and he was not, like, an agent of it. blah, Glee.

If you were dying to know WHAT WAS IN TH E DAMN BOX. Read on. The most adorable Klaine scene ever was arguably left on the cutting room floor. You had a semi-proposal, a recital of what could be Blaine’s wedding vows, cute meta on how Kurt affords his trendy ensembles, a reference to the couple “taking it to another level”, Blaine pledging to kiss Kurt whenever and wherever he wants. It’s a real love scene between these two boys, and to be honest, it makes me wonder if it was FOX’s Big Red Pen that was responsible for the scene being cut.
There seemed to be a conscious effort, after the controversial virginity episode “The First Time” aired, to cut back on public displays of affection between the queer couples. My theory is that after some groups complained about “The First Time” coupled with Glee’s declining ratings, the network went all “No Homo” on Glee producers. I’m not a conspiracy theorist generally, but you’ve got to wonder what’s going on when the hetero couple, Finn and Rachel are constantly sucking face on screen, while Kurt and Blaine and Brittany and Santana rarely kiss, except in a couple of “very special” episodes. Hm.
There were a couple of other PDA type exchanges cut from the episode apart from the box scene. The writers are penning scenes for the gay couples that don’t make it to the final cut. This is the show that has a reputation for being pro-queer and groundbreaking…yet it appears to be censoring their writers? Something is seriously wrong right here."
I was thinking about MJ’s post in the shower this morning (like you do) and it also occurred to me that all of this crap explains the feeling that some people were getting from Chris in appearances or interviews that he wasn’t into Klaine or was bored with it. Imagine how frustrating this must have been for him—Darren too, but especially Chris. Season 1 and 2 got him a Golden Globe award. Season 3, Kurt gets a boyfriend, and suddenly most of his work is ending up on the floor. How hard would it be to keep sounding excited and enthusiastic about your character’s relationship when you know most of it is never going to air?
