I know I say this a lot but I wanted to say it now as a seperte post.
Blaine does NOT deserve to be called Kurts hero for taking the slushy! Because there was nothing to truley save Kurt from. Now before you lose your brains(Klainers):
Blaine is shorter than Kurt. Argo, the slushy wouldn’t have gone in his eyes(they weren’t trying to blind anyone and Sebastian isn’t totally evil) it would have ruined his clouths! Which is a more likely target for them to go after. But in typical Glee fashion they dramatise everything and make it so the Warblers are evil and that Blaine is an even greater charcter than Klainers and Blaine stan already think he is. And they made it to where intead of just the eye patch they make it so he can’t walk. Like what? If Darren had to leave they should have pushed him down some stairs *just sayin that’s more bealiveable*.
The whole plot device was so Darren could leave and do a stunt-castng on Broadway, and so his character needed to be off screen….
I completely agree, Sebastian wasn’t being “evil” here but just his normal jerky, asshat self by wanting to ruin Kurt’s clothes…….
Again, let’s point out the fact that Sebastian was spending some “extra” effort and time to get at Kurt. Kurtbastian goggles.
Taking a slushy isn’t really that “heroic.” Almost everyone in the Glee Club has been been slushied at one point or another.It is a part of their normal level of bullying they faced everyday. The only exception to that is Blaine, who up to that point had had never been mocked/slushied
Blane didn’t know about the rock salt, when he stepped in. He only got hurt because of the height difference, between him and Kurt. That’s all.
Blaine may have been thinking of Kurt’ (for once) but in his mind’s eye it wasn’t going to be a “sacrifice.”——he wasn’t going to lose anything by it.
Let’s compare this with some Kurt moments
1) Purposely losing a diva contest to protect his dad from dealing with the reaction of homophobic dicks.
2) Telling Azimio and Dave to leave Tina alone and pick on him instead, though he could have gotten seriously injured
3) Taking a sluishie for Finn, to save his reputation
4) Not doing a duet with Sam so he wouldn’t get bullied for singing with the “gay boy”
In these situations, Kurt purposely put himself at risk, or lost something in order to protect others.……that is not the same thing as what Blaine did .
Kurt is the heroic one.
Let’s also not forget that Sebastian would never have had reason to target Kurt if it weren’t for Blaine playing coy, keeping in contact that kept Sebastian’s interest on him but not letting Sebastian get what he wanted. It was Blaine’s own fault that Kurt ended up in Sebastian’s crosshairs.
