Living through an event like gunshots fired at school can make people experience a wide range of emotions. The events of Glee Season 4, Episode 18: "Shooting Star" certainly had an interesting effect on Blaine (Darren Criss): They convinced him to say “I love you” to Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz)!
It’s no secret that Tina has harbored a huge crush on her GBF for a while now. But Blaine, still heartbroken over his breakup with Kurt (Chris Colfer), never returned her affections. (Also: He’s gay. Not straight, not bi, but 100% gay. So that likely had a great deal to do with it, as well.)
After the shooting scare is over, a still visibly-shaken Tina and Blaine talk about it in the hallway at school the next day.
"You know that you're my family,” Tina tells him through her tears. “Everybody in that room is my family. I didn't want the last thing you guys heard from me is some snarky comment about how I never get solos."
Blaine hugs her, then leans down to kiss the top of her head. "Oh, I love you, Tina." They then walk away... holding hands.
Girls totally hold hands with their GBFs all the time, right? We’re pretty sure that’s a thing. Because as much as we’re on board with Blaine loving Tina like a sister, we just can’t get behind the idea of Blaine and Tina falling in love.
There’s friendship love, and there’s romantic love. One of them, we totally support. The other... let’s just say it might lead to an angry mob of pitchfork-wielding Klaine fans. And nobody wants and angry Klaine mob coming after them. Nobody.
