DarrenCriss: Late gleevening with the lads @chordoverstreet @hitchmichael #Glee
Okay costume meta folk, time to weigh in on Blaine in his blue polo, surrounded by a sea of McKinley red at this pep rally/bonfire.
Hell, I can’t wait for the actual scene and the meta and symbolism of bonfires, fire in general. Makes me think of that…oh God, too early in the morning, Santa Fe thing, “Somebody Like You” related, you know, the thing!
Yeah, Blaine’s a Dalton man again, so there’s that. It’s a way to mark a different path he’s trying to take (even though blue is one of his common colors—it’s just noticeable here, in an event where you’d wear the color of your school). Is this the same polo Blaine wore in “Movin’ Out?”
I also keep thinking about Dave, who will be here too, right? Like, I would imagine many of the alums would wear red, would wear letterman jackets (like the Cheerios in their uniforms). Dave will not be wearing a letterman jacket, that’s for sure.
Also, since I saw the Cheerio alums I’ve been wondering if any others will don uniforms or jackets … there are a lot of students who were in Cheerios or football, like Blaine, Kurt, Tina, Mercedes … But Brit, Santana and Quinn were more iconic in that way I suppose.
I’m really shocked to see Blaine in non-McKinley colors. Unless the rival team they’re playing against is Dalton Football (which seems unlikely, because in my experience public schools only play against each other, and private schools have a completely separate league), Blaine should be there to see his friends and support McKinley. So wearing a primary color other than red is a big surprise.
I don’t think the red-winning/blue-losing color system works as well anymore as it did in seasons 1-3. Even so, Blaine is associated with blue and green as personal basic colors (also red), though it’s usually a darker navy when he’s really in control of himself. Still, I wouldn’t read anything about Blaine’s mental state or plot arc from this color choice. What it does mean is that he feels a strong separation from the McKinley crowd — he’s there, but he’s not part of it.
I’ll be really curious to see, if Schue is there, what color he’s wearing.
I think it’s interesting that Blaine is wearing the same polo from Movin’ Out. Specifically the scene where he decided he wanted to be a doctor—where he doubted himself and pretended to be something he was not.
I’m just sayin’…
