Eventually, Glee will have to figure out how to keep its new cast from slotting into the old roles, but for now, at least all the old characters have some mercifully—forgive me—new directions. Has Darren Criss ever been funnier? He’s so broken up about breaking up with Kurt that he doesn’t think he can play the truth of Danny Zuko. “I don’t even gel on weekends.” Ever since the season began, Blaine has been trying to figure out how he fits into McKinley without Kurt. He’s so lost he walks down the line of scrimmage singing “Hopelessly Devoted To You.” Now he’ll really get to find out who he is.
