@stateless, Darren Criss said in an interview that the script was purposefully vague about Blaine's "cheating," so I won't be surprised if this is a case like you said. He went to see Eli C. and considered the fact that he thought about cheating actual cheating. We'll see when the show returns.

RE Grease, Danny changed, too. He became a Varsity athlete in track because that's what he thought Sandy wanted. So, IMO, they're doing this musical because it's set to a high school backdrop and not because it has great life lessons, no matter what Finn said.

I loved the episode but what bugs me is the wait for the next episode, A MONTH! No wonder they are dropping ratings like crazy. It´s been only four episodes and they are making us wait already?

Anyway I predicted this a long time ago (The break ups), it needed to happen, all the relationships were getting borring (Klaine I´m looking at you). So am glad they finally broke up. Time to spice things up, new love interests please.

(contd) ...the flashbacks, etc), they would'nt just ruin it that way. I'm pretty sure there's way more to that than a petty cheating story. Plus it would be yet another OCC move if Kurt took him back after he cheated, and we all know (or hope) that the will be back together.
Now I just hope that before giving us the real backstory to that, the writers will take time to actually delve into Blaine's character, explain where this fear of loneliness and rejection comes from, and where the freakin' hell are his parents? And that they will use the time to make both characters grow into the adults they're supposed to become.

And by the way, thank you so much Glee for making me discover « Barely Breathing », never made it to France in the 90 's, and it's amazing.

When I first saw the « facebook Blaine » scene in the show, I got pissed with the writers for bringing up the cheating issue again with the characters, instead of adressing the real issue, i.e. Blaine's excruciating loneliness. The kid has no support system at all, and he's presented as being on the verge of a full blown depression. And it was just too OCC for a character who's thrown a fit when his BF texted another guy, and who's been written with such high moral standard.
And that's the reason why I'm pretty sure no "cheating" happened, at leat not in the way it's being implied. Considering how Blaine was written, he probably just went, patted the guy's hand and balked out, yet thought it was cheating.... I mean, the writers wouldn't be stupid enough to totally destroy a character (and the half of a couple) that has as much impact as this, now would they? Plus, for once, they showed great continuity in the episode, with all the details (Kurt's outfit in Blaine's hallucination, the flashbacks, etc), they would'nt just ruin it that way. I'm pretty sure there's way more to that than a petty cheating story. Plus it would be yet another OCC move if Kurt took him back after he cheated, and we all know (or hope) that the will be back together.

I'm so behind on my glee.. I just watched this episode today and cried my eyes out. All the cast members are so grown up.. I feel like this show just started. I can connect to this show so much being a freshman who just started university. I could totally relate to Finn when he said he felt lost... Loving the new season, way better than the last one (:

I don't care about the other two couples I want Brittany and santana to get back together.

I just don't understand why the show felt it was necessary to have one episode for EVERYONE to break up. Is it that difficult to maintain different plots for each couple? They couldn't let them all have their own time to break-up or stay together, it was like they had to do it all at once just so they didn't get confused in later episodes about who was together and who wasn't. I felt it would have been more realistic if they hadn't broken them all up so quickly.
I also hate that Blaine cheated on Kurt. If anything, Blaine should have broken up with Kurt because they didn't have enough time for each other. Kurt was actively ignoring Blaine, giving him ample reason to end it right there. He didn't need to cheat on Kurt, though with the way Kurt was treating him I can understand that he did. He shouldn't have asked for Kurt's forgiveness though. He should have just ended it with that.
That said, Santana nailed everything she said about long distance relationships. I completely agree.

@Anonymous - You are so right about GREASE. The songs may be catchy. But, the message to girls is just horrific. Danny continues to be a greaser and hang out with his friends. But, until Sandy changes everything about herself, starts smoking and dresses like a streetwalker, they can't be together. What a load of *&%#! I couldn't believe that was the message when I first saw the musical a LONG time ago...as a KID! Even then I could recognize...uh, something isn't right here.

Loved this episode even though all my couples broke up. I am amazed at the comments that say they can't believe that Blaine would cheat? Blaine would most certainly do especially since he was so hurt by the text cheating that Kurt was doing last season. Anger is a strong motivator to do stupid things. If we are talking about applying real world situations, this is the one couple that is doomed. Also, on the shallow side, seeing Cory Monteith in an Army uniform and making the angry faces in "Barely Breathing" had me well...barely breathing. The only real criticism I have is Brody hanging behind the two couples like some creepy stalker at the bar...very awkward and makes him soooo unlikable. But Finn's face when they exchange the few words and the way he looked at Brody...brilliant I-wish-I-could-kick-your-ass face.

I think the writers did a good job in assigning the main reasons long distance relationships don't work. They are maturity (recognizing the distance and temptations will eventually ruin it), cheating, and uncertainty of future goals especially when one person is certain and the other not. They assigned cheating to Blaine and Kurt because the others could not apply. I think that Rachel and Finn will get together because the are the power couple of Glee. I think that Brody is not a powerful enough character to replace Finn and will be an easy distraction for Rachel whom she'll walk away from without so much as a tear when the time comes. I think Santana and Brit are too intellectually different, so I don't think they will make it; Will and Emma will be fine. Kurt and Blaine will stay together because Ryan Murphy wants them too. But in a real life situation, they would never make it. Once a cheat, always a cheat, bottom line.
