“Glee” Episode 212 Recap: Stalker at the Gap

 
 

We ricochet back to the coffee place, where Kurt and Blaine
are in line. Blaine’s
now turned into a cynic, and sneers at the Valentine’s Day decorations he’d
loved before.

“I don’t think I’ve EVER made that big a fool of
myself, which is really saying something, because I’ve performed at theme
parks,” he says. “I just can’t believe I made it all up in my
head.”

And Kurt, bless his strong little heart, lays it on the
line. “You and I, we hang out, we sing flirty duets together, you know my
coffee order,” he says. “Was I supposed to think that was nothing?”

Blaine, who apparently is not very bright, says, “What
do you mean?’

Kurt does a lot of talking in the rest of the scene, and
it’s witty and smart and I love it. But his face says more than his words ever
could. “I thought the guy you wanted to ask out on Valentine’s Day was
me,” he tells Blaine.

Blaine
is gobsmacked. “Wow. I really am clueless. Look, Kurt, I don’t know what
I’m doing. I pretend like I do, and I know how to act it out in song, but the
truth is, I’ve never really been anyone’s boyfriend.”

“Me, neither.”

“Let me be really clear about something. I really, really care about you. But as you and about
20 mortified shoppers saw, I’m not very good at romance. I don’t want to screw this
up.”

“So it’s just like ‘When Harry Met Sally’… but I get
to play Meg Ryan.”

“Deal.” Then Blake pauses. “Don’t they get together
in the end?”

Kurt gives a little smile and steps up to the counter.
“Could I get a non-fat mocha, and a medium drip for my friend Billy
Crystal?”

Blaine
looks at him almost tenderly. “Ah. You know my coffee order.”

Then Kurt’s eyes sparkle and wrinkle up adorably, and he
says, “You know what? I think I’ve got something for us to do on Valentine’s
Day.”

So, that was our Valentine’s Day Klaine. I think it was
pretty clear that our boys are going to give it a try. I’m not sure how Blaine went from,
“Huh?” to “I don’t want to screw this up,” in one
conversation, but maybe it’s a teenager thing. Or maybe it’s just bad writing.
But I’ve decided to do my best Natalie Wood impersonation for them like I’m
doing it for Brittana, and chant, “I believe. I believe. It’s stupid but I
believe.”

Now for another shot of bitter to dilute all the sweet:
Lauren’s stood Puck up. He’s consoling himself by making out with the waitress,
says she’s turned on by losers because her dad’s a drug addict.

The next day, Finn gets up in front of the Glee Club and
announces he’s kissed every girl in the school and raised $324 – enough to pay
for half the ticket to Nationals. (Wait, they haven’t even gone to Regionals
yet.)

There’s a lot going on in the choir room in this scene. Finn
and Quinn are sick, and Brittany and Artie are holding hands. Then Tina has a complete sobbing breakdown
while singing “My Funny Valentine,” and I hope it’s because she’s still
in love with Artie, for the simple reason that if he and Brittany don’t break up
soon I’m going to die.

When Tina falls to the floor crying, Mike goes to comfort
her. Mr. Schuester says, “Wow. That was powerful. Almost too powerful.”
