If you were dying to know WHAT WAS IN THE 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.
