There’s a new student on tonight’s episode of Glee: openly gay Blaine, who sings Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” and thereby gets the attention of McKinley High’s Kurt Hummel.
According to reports (spoiler alert), tonight’s episode depicts Kurt (Chris Colfer) being harassed by football players before taking a look at the New Directions’ competition. There, he meets Blaine (Darren Criss), star of the glee club at the all-boys Dalton Academy.
In the episode, Blaine, who might become a potential love interest for Kurt, will teach him to be comfortable with his sexuality and not let bullying get him down.
Back at McKinley, another boys vs. girls musical role reversal takes place, with the boys singing a Supremes/En Vogue medley of “Stop! In the Name of Love/Free Your Mind” and the girls mashing up the Stones’ “Start Me Up” and Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ On A Prayer.”
