Okay, and while we’re on the subject of cute actors, Chris Colfer once again proved he’s a real talent last night. The Kurt/bullying storyline felt so real and so painful. Kurt’s role in this entire season is so socially important, and I give props to the Glee gurus (Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Ian Brennan) for tackling bullying in school but also showing there’s no simple solution. Basically, Kurt hit his limit with abuse from football player Karofsky, which seemed to have gotten increasingly more aggressive. Seeking a safer environment (and an excuse to spy on their sectionals competition), he snuck off to the all-boys Dalton Academy where he met Blaine, another out gay student and quite a good singer. The look on Kurt’s face when he watched Blaine sing was just priceless. It gave that musical moment a poignancy that instantly made it a Glee classic (read my reviews of all of tonight’s musical numbers later in the recap).

The big twist, though, was that when Kurt did finally confront Karofsky about the bullying (after a boost of confidence from Blaine), the football player kissed Kurt. Turns out the big tough guy was really just taking out his anger on the one kid with whom he could most relate. The most heartbreaking moment was when Kurt confessed to Blaine that the Karofsky kiss was his first ever. Ugh. Just like that, the tears begin flowing…
