Then how could he make a "well" pun?

So much for my guess last week that Blaine was starting his real redemption arc. I guess when you were killing runaway teenagers there's no coming back, even in fiction.

I'm torn, because Blaine really deserves to be dispatched. But David Anders is so fun to watch that I don't want him gone from the show!

I noticed that while Dad (can't remember the character's name) says really horrible and disparaging things to Blaine, Blaine only confronts Dad with examples of Dad's bad behavior, not hyperbolic insults.

I kind of wonder if the writers regret making Blaine so nonredeemable in the first season.

I kind of relate to Blaine. That's not a good thing. Note that he's not generally malicious. But he's kind of a nihilist and alienated (in a dry, ironic very Brit way) from the world. Given that day without a memory, he experienced who he might be without his past. I think, in a way, that's the essential Blaine and he continued it because that's who he wants to be. But the past is the past, it makes us who we are, and so...

Angus McDonough. Blaine adopted "DeBeers" to distance himself from his family.

I didn't even recognize Logan, which is weird because I have seen him in militarywear before on the VM movie.

RIP Vivian, she was cool.

I really did enjoy the cement shoes.

I really love the puns and the names in this show.

Blaine, I think his arc was genuine if he could work it. But he just couldn’t make it work. It’s nobody’s fault - but I think there’s a possibility somewhere of Blaine, nice-guy, respected member of the Rotary Club in some alternate timeline somewhere.
