Mercedes sees a million romantic candles all over every surface of the apartment, and immediately thinks GOD DAMNIT BLAINE NOT AGAIN. [x]
I’m f i n e
I have to drink five pints of hot coconut water every day, with a little garlic salt, some splenda, and a splash of hot sauce, and then you basically jog until you hallucinate.
I’ve talked about how a lot of what happened with Blaine this episode was a reaction to trauma. (from a relationships crisis to the bashing) - and as much as I think that it was a form of self-punishment, there’s also comfort-eating to think about. Because Blaine can self-comfort, has most likely had to learn to do so, as we’ve seen in The Shooting Star.
And then there’s Kurt, who works out on a Saturday morning and thinks that a sip of frozen chocolate means he’ll have to jog all the way home. That’s new behaviour, too. He’s no stranger to junk food, from cheesecake to home-baked prepacked goods with extra icing. And Kurt was just gay bashed. He got in a fist fight, and he ended up left on the ground. Now he’s preparing himself for a battle - literally doing at least 87 push-ups on the ground in camouflage underwear. Reaction to trauma.
Neither knows that this is going on with the other though. And that’s where the problems start.
Then one day you’re gonna wake up and realize that ‘I don’t love him anymore.’
