Blaine: I love you
Kurt: I love you too
Something I would like to point out about this scene? Kurt’s face. Kurt Hummel is someone who wears his emotions on his face despite trying very hard not to. It’s one of Chris’s skills as an actor, really, showing both the desire to lie and the inability to do so on his face. In this scene, Kurt doesn’t look loving. He doesn’t look enamored like Blaine does. Kurt is shocked, doesn’t know how to respond so says what he thinks he should. It’s written all over his face.
Kurt is clearly getting cold feet.
Which isn’t surprising, because if any character on this show is afraid to let people in, it’s Kurt Hummel.
I’m really glad you pointed this out because it’s something I noticed when I watched the episode, but somewhere in the middle of everyone else’s overwhelming excitement about the scene I figured maybe I was just overanalyzing. Of course it makes sense that Kurt would perhaps be surprised at Blaine’s admission, but he doesn’t look happy-surprised, he looks nervous and hesitant (at least to me). Kurt and Blaine can’t be the token perfect couple for much longer, so while this exchange was, on the one hand, incredibly adorable, it also made me a little anxious for next season.
