“Glee” Episode 216 Recap: Gay Romance and Rockin’ Regionals


I assumed it would be over, but we’re out in a shade-dappled
parkland somewhere

“Farewell, sweet prince,” as he buries Pavarotti, Blaine supportively by his side.

Kurt’s upset, but not for the reason Blaine thinks, that the loss of Pavarotti
