What I love about this scene is Kurt’s body language. There is so much love and affection in his face and body even as he’s obviously humoring Blaine. Kurt hasn’t had the best night, and he’s been irritated with Blaine for a lot of it, but even with all that, he’s still in love with him. The annoyance, the anger — it doesn’t change the fact that Blaine is his heartbeat.
And yes, that makes what’s happened earlier tonight and what’s going to happen next even more devastating. But it also explains why what happens next wasn’t an ending for Kurt. Like the other problems they’d faced so far, it hurt; but Kurt saw it as something to be dealt with and resolved because Hello I love this man and I trust our love to help us work things out.
I see a lot of the same undercurrent going on with Kurt in Season 4, before 4.04 and then from Thanksgiving onward. Kurt doesn’t know whether to trust Blaine anymore, but he does trust their love to help them work things out, even though he doesn’t have a clear idea or goal of what “work things out” means in this case. Maybe it means they’ll be friends and the best men at each other’s weddings; maybe it means they’ll be lovers and husbands; maybe it means they’ll be close friends but not best friends; maybe it means they’ll be brothers; maybe it means they’ll grow mutually apart.
I think it’s why Kurt hasn’t been rushing to get back together or, on the other hand, to strictly define what their friendship is and what its boundaries are (beyond “not dating”). He’s content with loving Blaine in the way that he’s comfortable, and trusting that love to show him the next right step to take each day.
