TODAY ON, “I DIDN’T REALIZE I WAS INTO THAT.”
THE TERRIFYING JOURNEY OF SELF DISCOVERY
There is an exact science to living with Chris on writing days.
In the beginning Will had tried to explain it to Ashley, to Alla, to his mom, to anyone willing to listen to his crackpot theories, “It’s sort of like popcorn,” which naturally got their attention, and then he would add, “It’s about knowing exactly how many seconds between pops you need to wait for before you hit the stop button.” Inevitably this would lead to his conversation partner staring at him like a crazy person and asking, “Is this a sex thing, because…” and he’d laugh and say, “No. Keyboard strokes. It’s a rhythm. I can tell exactly when he’s frustrated, or close to finishing either a chapter or for the day, or when he’s just thinking—it’s all about the keystrokes.”
And Ashley had said, “So this is totally a sex thing.”
And Alla had said, “Writers are weird and awesome—love you guys.”
And his mom had said, “Honey, I think you need to get some air. Plenty of air out there in the Hollywood Hills.”

There was only one film guaranteed to make Blaine cry.
It wasn’t any of the usual offenders, like Titanic or Marley and Me, the films that could reduce even Santana to tears.

Glee is almost over, just half a season left before they move on from it for good. They’re both ready, but there’s a tinge of disappointment as well. Over the years, the set has become home and the cast and crew are family. Not seeing the people they love so much every day, not having the safety that comes with working with people you trust so well, it’ll be strange. The cast will grow apart. Start families, have new shows, new careers… but they’ll keep in touch all the same.
Both Chris and Darren are growing eager to branch out.
