‘Glee’ season 4, episode 21 review: Are Kurt and Blaine a step closer to [spoiler]?

KlaineThere are some big things happening on “Glee,” but for most of them, you are going to have to wait until next week’s finale. Thursday night’s new episode “Wonder-ful” had its lovely moments, but it was more based on trying to set up events than resolving much of anything, save for a final appearance from Kate Hudson as Cassandra July.

It was actually Cassandra who was the night’s biggest flaw. Instead of the series trying to see more of the snarky dance teacher that so many had come to know and love / loathe, she was suddenly extremely nice as she wished Rachel well on her “Funny Girl” audition, claiming that she actually thought she would get the part at the end of day. Shocked? So were we, and it was completely out of character given that there was no buildup to it at all.

Instead, what we found enjoyable from the New York storyline (or at least the characters related to it) was the news that Kurt’s father Burt is cancer-free, and how he doesn’t have to worry about that anymore. However, he does have to worry about Blaine wanting to propose to his son. Is it somewhat similar to Finn and Rachel? Sure, but the major difference is that being engaged does not mean you have to get married now or even in a year, that and that Kurt and Blaine are not even really together at the moment. It’s an awful lot to jump from not dating to engaged, though it has already happened on TV once this year with Barney / Robin on “How I Met Your Mother.”

Elsewhere, we learned that Will and Emma have gotten re-engaged (without strangely actually seeing it, which felt pretty awful), and Artie ended up getting accepted into the Brooklyn Film Academy. This led to a moving story involving Katey Sagal as his mother, and if he decides to go, the show’s New York universe will expand yet again.

What did you think about this “Glee” episode, and are you rooting for more of the Klaine engagement story? If you want to read even more news when it comes to the finale, you can do so over at the link here.
