As soon as the infamous “Break-Up” episode of “Glee” finished airing last Thursday, there was one question that we were immediately asking to anyone and everyone: who in the world was Eli C.? In not casting the part, executive producer Ryan Murphy made a pretty interesting decision. Not only did he really keep the subject of what actually happened between Blaine and this guy on Facebook rather close to the vest, but he also opted not to cast the actor (probably in fear of them being royally stoned) and had the moment happen off-camera.
So what does Darren Criss have to say about this mystery man looking back? Speaking to TVLine, the man behind the former Warbler says that the way in which the character was presented was exactly how it was meant to be:
”It’s very open-ended … We don’t know who this person is or what this decision was.”
In addition to this, Criss also opens up a little bit on the subject of just how Kurt and Blaine could be involved in each other’s lives, even if they are dating other people. We in some ways believe that what he is saying is a rather idealistic view on life, but we applaud him for his sense of optimism:
“I would love to see them be a part of each other’s future relationships…. If Kurt meets someone new and they are having some problems, I hope Blaine is the person that Kurt calls and says, ‘This is really tough for me.’”
So where is Blaine heading next? Potentially, to try out for the New Directions’ version of “Grease” … though at some point down the road, he is going to meet a member of his former school in Dalton Academy who is more than interested in trying to bring him back.
