Glee-Cap: The First Time
by Robert Lawlor - Nov 8, 2011

Remember your first time? He was wearing that half mask, you were wearing your favorite Opera dress, all while you were sailing on a boat through the - Oh wait, that was Christine from Phantom of the Opera. But, tonight - relationships will be taken to the next level as it's time for two of our favorite couples to Face the Music of the night and take their own journey - sans the opera dress, the mask, and the boat - well - maybe. Artie takes his role of director of West Side Story to heart and proposes an interesting question to his stars Rachel and Blaine - if "Tonight" is about sexual awakening - what was yours like? Both are flustered - but take the question into account with their boyfriends. Blaine makes a visit to Dalton to invite the Warblers to opening night of West Side Story and encounters a rehearsal of "Uptown Girl" sung by Nick and a new Warbler, named Sebastian. Artie - after watching Coach Bieste run out of rehearsal upon his question to Rachel and Blaine - confronts her about her first time - to find she's interested in someone, but unsure how to pursue it. Also in pursuit - Sebastian chats up Blaine, clearly walking the line between flirtation and walking over the line. Finn goes to Puck for advice about garnering protection for his night with Rachel, while Kurt and Blaine discuss Kurt's bucket list of things - which prompts Blaine to ask about being adventurous while they're young, causing Kurt to question his words. Blaine goes to meet with Sebastian, who once again pushes the line - but Kurt arrives and instantly pushes back on the boy's advances, but agrees to sneak into a gay bar with him - shocking Blaine. Artie pushes the man who Bieste is interested in to ask her out - making it very obvious - while Rachel pushes Finn to commit, only to offend him when she lets slip why she wants to do it so badly. Cooter steps up to the plate to ask Bieste out, but her insecurity almost derails it - but things click and go on track for a date. Rachel, desperate to figure out what she did wrong - calls on the girls of glee club and becomes inspired by Tina's words about her first time with Mike. Meanwhile, Mike and his father come to words about his involved with West Side Story - both men saying things they will likely regret. Blaine and Kurt head to the gay bar - which reveals Sebastian once again attempting to push the line, while Kurt surprisingly runs into Karofsky, whose doing well while at his new school, seemingly putting a real truce to the events of the past. Kurt rains on Sebastian's parade by claiming Blaine on the dance floor, only to have an argument with Blaine after he gets too handsy as they get ready to leave - Blaine storms off, leaving Kurt hurt. Opening night of the musical comes and Artie is nervous, but his cast makes him feel like a grown man for the first time with their support. Santana, Puck, and the Sharks sing "America" - while Mike and the Jets crash the party. Backstage, Blaine and Rachel grow more nervous for being realistic about their roles, but agree - they can truly do this. After the show, Kurt meets Blaine on stage and they share a tender moment before leaving to go to Blaine's. Finn freaks out over the recruiter not looking at him seriously, his frustration about his future reaching a peak - which Rachel attempts to bring him down from. As "One Hand, One Heart" is recalled - both couples share their special first time. No opera dresses, no boats - but lots of love. Until next week, Gleeks. (more...)
