It feels like we’ve been hearing about Ryan Murphy’s Glee Break-Up episode for so long now, but it’s finally coming this week. After getting an early look at it, I can assure you, there will be tears from anyone watching, and our suspicions were confirmed. Check out the new Klaine & Finchel images and clips below.
Glee has never gotten me teared up until this season, and Ryan Murphy’s Break-Up episode will easily get every fan weeping easily. This one hits so on the mark for anyone who’s been in a relationship that goes through growing pains or just realizes that it’s over. Many of us will keep pushing forward in a relationship even though we know it’s over, but something just makes us pretend away and this episode touches on those things along with realizing how deep love can go.
I dare any cynics of the show to be able to sit through this episode without being touched in some way. As we all know Finchel will be over after Executive Producer Brad Falchuk confirmed it, but naturally after Darren Criss made an aside comment about Klaine, everyone’s jumped all over that. I’m not going to go into detail since I hate those kind of spoilers as you all haven’t seen it yet, but Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine’s (Darren Criss) storyline follows a normal relationship where two people are striving to keep their own individuality in the relationship. How many of us have been in that relationship where you both lose yourselves? This covers that so well and how to keep a relationship healthy while going after your own dreams.
The official synopsis for the Break-Up episode: Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) are caught off-guard when they get unexpected visits in New York City. Meanwhile, Santana (Naya Rivera) and Brittany (Heather Morris) deal with the long distance between them, and Will (Matthew Morrison) and Emma (Jayma Mays) disagree on a new job offer in the all-new “The Break Up” episode.
Santana will be popping in to McKindley to sing Taylor Swift’s Mine song to Brittany, but the frustrating part of all this is that Glee will be on hiatus until November 8, 2012 when Blake Jenner’s Ryder comes onboard. If you look closely in the clip below, you’ll see Dean Geyer’s Brody is right in the background watching things unfold.
