Glee’s gay couple may not go the distance

Kurt and Blaine begin season four in different places

Glee’s gay couple may not go the distance
16 August 2012

When Glee kicks off its fourth season next month, gay couple Kurt and Blaine will no longer be strolling the halls of William McKinley High School together.

As Blaine (Darren Criss) begins his senior year, boyfriend Kurt (Chris Colfer) has graduated and is off to New York to pursue his career as a performer.

These high school sweethearts may be heading in different directions by the fourth episode of the new season.

‘Long-distance relationships are hard,’ Executive Producer Brad Falchuk tells TV/Line. ‘They’re not impossible, but they’re really hard. And with all the couples we’re really trying to look at what it takes to have a relationship when one person leaves. It’s particularly hard when somebody graduates high school and someone is still in high school. The second you graduate high school you’re in a different world. You see things differently, your needs are different, your perspective on things is different. So I think it’s a pretty tough challenge.’

The fourth episode is called The Break-Up and is likely to involve Kurt and Blaine although the couplings of Santana and Brittany, Will and Emma and Rachel and Finn could also be vulnerable.

Glee’s season premiere airs 13 September.
