Now, we only need to brace for Kurt and Rachel's showdown over having Brody (Dean Geyer) living with them.
Lest anyone think Kurt's victory might make him the new Rachel, Kurt has never been that particular brand of diva. The scene where Rachel's lapdogs try to switch to him and Kurt shuts them down is unnecessary, but satisfying.
At McKinley, Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz) is still after Blaine (Darren Criss), and thinks that being a diva will help her land him. It's such a dumb, dumb arc that needs to go away soon. Blaine already lets Tina down gently in a previous episode, and still she hangs around, caring for him when he is sick, and has trouble accepting that a gay man will never lover her in a sexual way, even if her "Hung Up" is Tina's best performance on Glee to date.
I mean, did Tina see Blaine's "Don't Stop Me Now?" I know that Blaine is trying to prove that men can be divas, too, but he only checks that box for gay men, as there is nothing straight about his rendition. Which is not a complaint, as I adore Blaine as a character; I'm just saying that it should have sent a clear message to Tina.
Also, as much as I like "Don't Stop Me Now" and Blaine's usual singing talents, I thought this number felt a little flat this week. Not sure why, it just lacked the driving energy he normally exhibits.
It's hard to get too mad at Blaine for not shutting Tina down more fully. After all, he has already laid out for her where he stands, and she has become his closest friend at McKinley, even if it's for all the wrong reasons. He doesn't want to be alone, and he likes having Tina be for him what Rachel is for Kurt. But he has to sit her down again and lay it all out in a way that finally gets through to her, or this will not end well.
Santana (Naya Rivera) returns in "Diva" when she learns that Brittany (Heather Morris) is now dating Sam (Chord Overstreet) from Tina, further cementing Tina's status as an unlikeable character. Santana doesn't want Britanny back, she just doesn't think that Sam is good enough for her bestie, and is determined to break them up.
