Misery Klaine HD Daxterdd screencaps collection
As most Klainers agree, Misery was really the turning point for Blaine, as oblivious as he was to it and as much as this may just have been the moment Glee shows us. Daxterdd made some awesome HD caps (click on images to get HD) and comments. I love them so much I wanted them all in one place. Because I like mega posts.
Stop trying to cheat on your homework, Nick.
I’m sure Dalton’s staunch moral code includes an ethics regulation as well as its stringent anti-bullying policy.
I swear, Blaine, that’s exactly the kind of behavior (i.e. all this homework throwing nonsense), that is going to get your fine behind kicked out of Dalton for season three.
Please, please feel free to continue.
It’s such a beautiful hallway. How sad this is the last time we really see it.
Such a large amount of swag in such a little package.
Kurt Hummel is not amused by your paper-throwing shenanigans.
And seriously, Nick, stop cheating.
So scared of breaking it, that you won’t let it bend.
Interesting hand gestures there, Blainers. I can’t decide if you’re miming breaking something or bending something.
Kurt: I’ll show you what you can break there, buddy, and where exactly you can bend it.
And I wrote 200 letters I will never send.
Why would anyone want to send letters when you could just throw them up in the air?
Blaine literally has both hands on Kurt right here, and a totally adoring look on his face.
And Kurt just looks like he’d rather be doing homework.
I love how much they both progressed between BICO and here.
Sometimes these cuts are so much deeper than they seem…
Hey, Blaine? You notice how you can’t seem to keep your hands or your eyes off of Kurt?
Yea, there’s a reason for that.
“You’d rather cover up, I’d rather let them be.”
Blaine: Why isn’t Kurt looking at me while I’m singing? Doesn’t he like my singing? Am I not singing good? Maybe I just need to try harder and be more adorable?
“So let me be, and I’ll set you free.”
Blaine: I bet the pouty face will get him to pay attention to me. That always works!
“I am in misery.”
Blaine: Oh, don’t mind me, I’m just going to sing this song about being in misery and love and lust and all sorts of things to this guy I’m friends with.
But it’s all platonic, I swear.
“There ain’t nobody who can comfort me!”
This is forever my favorite shot of them.
And I swear everyone in that hall knew that Blaine was head over heels for Kurt except for Blaine and Kurt.
“Oh yeah! Why won’t you answer me?.”
He’s such a happy little puppy here, just because he’s getting to sing and he’s getting to hang out with Kurt and he’s getting to sing with Kurt.
He’s also oblivious to the fact that he’s in LURVE and that Kurt is so not in the mood to humor him.
“The silence is slowly killing me. Oh yeah!.”
Blaine: The fact that you’re not paying attention to me is kind of killing me, Kurt, but I won’t realize why until another ten minutes or so into the episode.
“Girl, you really got me bad. You really got me bad.”
Blaine: Hey, Kurt! Look at me, Kurt! Look I’m dancing! Don’t I dance good Kurt! Are you watching, Kurt? Huh? Are you?
Yay! he’s watching!
“Now I’m gonna get you back. I’m gonna get you back.”
Kurt: That’s nice, Blaine. *yawn*
“You say your faith is shaken …”
From puppy to sex bomb in .002 seconds.
I hate you so much.
“And you may be mistaken”
Blaine Anderson finds it impossible to pay attention to something that isn’t Kurt for more than a few seconds.
So freakin’ oblivious.
Kurt: Oh, he’s pointing at me again. I guess I should do … something. Whee. Isn’t this just so much fun. Except, you know. Not.
“You keep me wide awake and waiting for the sun.”
He’s so gosh darn sincere when he sings that line because, he doesn’t realize it yet, but Kurt’s totally like the sun to him, and like a flower, he’s drawn to it.
“I’m desperate and confused. So far away from you.
I’m getting there, I don’t care where I have to run.”
We know you’re confused, Blainers.
Luckily this is the episode where you finally figure things out.
“Why do you do what you do to me?”
I’m such a sucker for the Dalton decor. It’s just so freaking gorgeous.
And I see you in the background there, Blaine, making heart eyes at Kurt again.
“Why won’t you answer me, answer me?”
I see you there, Blainers, bouncing around like a little puppy in the middle of all your Pips.
“I am in misery!”
Aw, you look it there too, Blainers.
Are you sad again because Kurt’s not paying attention to you?
Kurt: I just keep reminding myself that I’m prettier than all of you.
“There ain’t nobody who can comfort me.”
You really do look so sad, though, Blainers. I just want to give you a hug.
That looks strikingly similar to the same Elvis moves he was pulling at Prom. All that’s missing is the microphone.
“Girl, you really got me bad. You really got me bad.”
Blaine: Boy, you really got me bad. You really got me bad.
It’s just going to take a dead bird for me to realize it.
“Now I’m gonna get you back. I’m gonna get you back”
And he’s aiming all of that directly at Kurt, even pointing right at him as he sings it.
I swear, if you looked up “oblivious” in a dictionary, there would be a picture of Blaine Anderson next to the definition.
Blaine: “You’ve just met our opening number!”
But that’s not a Pink song…
Also, is the ceiling Regionals? Because I can’t think of any other reason why you’d be talking to it.
The Pips congratulate their king…
While the voice of reason looks on, unamused.
Blaine: “How did you manage to find a Burberry-esque canary cage cover?” .”
You don’t even have to see his face to know that he’s got a wide smile on and is so very impressed at Kurt’s shopping skills.
Kurt: “Canaries don’t like cold weather. Especially, Pavarotti.”
Aw, Pavi, we miss you, but rest assured your death was not in vain.
The fact the Blaine doesn’t react to Kurt’s voice at all when he’s talking to Pavi makes me think he’s heard it before. Often.
Kurt totally loved that bird.
Blaine: ”So what’d you think of the song?”
Kurt’s the only one whose opinion he actually asks for, because Kurt is the only one whose opinion he actually cares about.
He likes the attention he gets from the rest of the Warblers because it makes him feel happy and popular and like transferring to Dalton was a good idea, no matter what that lump in his chest says.
But the only one he’s looking for approval from is Kurt.
Kurt: ”Can I be really honest with you? Because it comes from a place of caring?”
Asking if you can be honest is never a good sign.
Dun dun dun…
Blaine: Oh that doesn’t sound good. Does this mean he didn’t like it? Does this mean he doesn’t like me? I wonder what it means. I hope he liked it. I hope he still likes me. Please like me. Please like me. Please. Please. Please.
Kurt: “Been there. Done that.”
Sometimes, the truth hurts.
But it’s still true.
He looks like he’s about to cry.
Hey Blainers, I think you need to think long and hard about why Kurt’s disapproval can make you so sad.
Or, ya know, you could just wait for the bird to croak.
Kurt: ”You’re amazing, Blaine.”
Kurt: And the fact that I’m calling you on your shit doesn’t mean I’m any less in love with you.
Kurt: ”Your solos are breathtaking.”
Blaine: Yay! He likes me!
Look at him! He’s positively preening!
A few short words from Kurt is all it takes to transform Blaine from a kicked puppy to beaming.
Seriously, Blainers. Be more obvious.
Kurt: ”They’re also numerous.”
Blaine: ”Kurt, the council decides who gets the solos.”
Blaine: Oh no. Kurt’s mad at me again. Well fine, I can act all smug and superior as well.
Kurt: That’s fascinating, Blaine. Really. Now why don’t you tell me something you didn’t already tell me seven episodes ago.
Blaine: ”Do I detect a little jealousy?”
Blaine: There. That sounded nice and superior. There’s no way he’ll be able to tell how much he hurt my feelings.
That’s a good plan, Blaine. Except you kind of wear your emotions all over your face.
Kurt: ”No, you detect a lot of jealousy.”
Kurt: Stop acting all superior as I’m calling you on your shit. It’s not going to work this time.
Blaine: Oh. That was unexpected.
Kurt: ”Look, Blaine. Sometimes I don’t feel like we’re the Warblers.”
Kurt: ”I feel like we’re Blaine and the Pips.”
Blaine: Oh. Huh. Right then. *Has no response*
