It’s just another day at Glee’s McKinley High and off-and-on gay supercouple Kurt and Blaine are strolling down the hall, recapping their friends’ holiday hijinks. Kurt’s not in the holiday spirit after losing all of his improbable bids in an Elizabeth Taylor estate jewelry auction, but Blaine reminds him to be thankful for the things they do have. And then Blaine pulls Kurt into a corner to give him a gift: a box containing a ring made out of gum wrappers. Not an engagement ring, but a promise ring.
Kurt: “But what are you promising?”
Blaine: “To always love you. To defend you, even if I know you’re wrong. To surprise you. To always pick up your phone call, no matter what I’m doing. To bake you cookies at least twice a year. To kiss you wherever and whenever you want. But mostly just to make sure that you remember how perfectly imperfect you are.”
It’s the scene all Kurt/Blaine fans dream of. The kind of romantic and emotional bit of canon — the writer-sanctioned story lines that make up a fictional universe — that launches a thousand fanfics.
Just one problem. The scene never aired.
