TVLine’s Michael Ausiello has plenty of gay gossip on the new season of Glee.
First comes news that Dave Karofsky will be returning in late October in a very unusual way. The closeted bully will run into his favorite punching bag, Kurt, at a gay bar. What are the two minors doing in a bar? Well, like every closeted Republican tells us, we assume they were just there to use the bathroom. (Then again, late October is fairly close to Halloween, so maybe they were both trick-or-treating?)
And speaking of Kurt, just because Blaine has transferred to McKinley to be with him doesn’t mean it’s smooth sailing for Blurt (or is it Klaine? Kurt Co-Blaine?) Ausiello also reports that a new character might just bust up the happy couple.
Grant Gustin, whose credits include playing Baby John in the national tour of West Side Story, plays Sebastian, a gay Dalton Warbler “who sets his sights on Blaine.” He’s set to make his debut in this season’s fifth episode.
Both Fox and the show’s producers declined to comment, but the buzz is that Sebastian is the polar opposite of Kurt in every possible way. He’s more like the male version of Santana in that he’s both promiscuous and kinda-sorta scheming.
“He’s our villain this season,” an insider tells me. “It’s a major role.”
Actually, if this Sebastian drives a wedge between Kurt and Blaine that might open the door for a Kurt Hummel/David Karofsky romance? Durt? Kammel?
On second thought, forget we brought it up.
