[The scene between Kurt and Burt] may have had me reaching for tissues, but it was about to get even sadder: After their respective solos, Kurt and Blaine went to talk to Emma, who had fashioned herself a relationship counselor after her talk with Sam and Mercedes. Tell me you caught Emma’s quick wink to Kurt when he promised he was “actively listening” to Blaine’s complaints. And Blaine certainly had some complaints: After they got past small stuff such as snapping at waiters — Seriously. Don’t do this — and putting bronzer in his moisturizer, they opened their hearts and got to the real problem: Kurt talked about NYADA all the time, and Blaine wasn’t looking forward to next year when he was going to be all alone and away from the love of his life. This was the kind of real-life fear that everyone has at the end of high school, when everything is changing super-fast. It’s like what Finn wished for last week — you just want everything to stand still. Blaine and Kurt’s relationship is going to change in a few months, but their teary confessions and ‘I love you’s’ finally put them on the same page with a promise to always be together. Here’s hoping.
