Glee Season 4 Spoilers: Blaine’s Mystery Lover, Eli — Does He Look Anything Like Kurt?
For many, one of the most heartbreaking things about Glee relationshipocolypse 2012 — aka "The Break-Up"— was learning that Blaine (Darren Criss), previously thought of as perhaps the World’s Most Perfect Boyfriend, had cheated on Kurt(Chris Colfer) by hooking up with some guy named Eli.
At the time, Entertainment Weekly reported that Glee had "no immediate plans to introduce Eliin the coming episodes." But might that all be about to change? During an October 22 Twitter Q&A with fans, creator Ryan Murphy was asked if fans will ever get to see what Eli looks like. His response: “Yes you will.”
Of course, this doesn’t guarantee that fans will actually get to meet Eli. We could just see a photo or Facebook profile pic. But still, it’s something! The same fan asked what Eli looks like, particularly if he resembles Kurt at all. Ryan’s reply: “no he doesn't.”
Ryan also said that Glee plans to explore the reasons why Blaine cheated, adding, “You can believe he feels badly.”
He teased more Blaine and Finn (Cory Monteith) scenes coming up, but offered a bit of troubling news for fans who may have assumed that Blaine will attending NYADA and joining Kurt in New York City next year. “Never said he was going to New York,” Ryanwrote.
Do you think Blaine is designed for NYC, or would you rather see him head off to Hollywood instead? And do you like the idea of meeting Eli face-to-face, or would you rather put Blaine’s cheating in the past and try to forget about it as soon as possible? Because if it were up to us, we’d actually prefer getting the chance to meet Eli. Just think of all the potential drama!
