A DIVA IS A FEMALE VERSION OF A HUSTLER...or another name for Brittany.

In other McKinley diva news, Tina decided she wanted to be one, and via voiceover decided she was done being upstaged, especially by Santana. "She doesn’t even go to this school!" Damien from Mean Girls Tina declared in her head. Somehow in Tina’s mind, “being a diva” meant going after a gay guy, which meant, yes, Tina’s crush on Blaine was still going strong, and he was still oblivious. He was also sick, which gave Tina time to plan and pounce. After giving him a cold-fighting care package, Blaine invited Tina over to his house to help her choose a song for diva week. Tina naturally took this for a date.

While at casa de Blaine, Tina grilled him on past relationships, and Blaine explained he was a “Gold Star Gay” who’d only ever kissed one girl: Rachel, who did not count. (But it was a part of this fantastically fun number! Never forget!) He was getting drowsy, so they curled up in bed together, and then as he was dozing off, Tina let loose with some bombshells: “Divas are brutally honest, and if I want to be like them, I have to be honest too. Blaine, I’m falling in love with you. Even if we had a sexless relationship, which many Asian girls and gay guys do, it would be worth it.” Thankfully (?) Blaine was already asleep, so he missed this going-nowhere confessional. But Tina took it a step further and unbuttoned his shirt, rubbed some decongestant cream on his chest, and cried. Glee is sad sometimes, but this may have been one of the most tragic scenes of all. Oh, Tina. Kim Kardashian thinks this is desperate. Move on.

The next day she freaked out to a confused Blaine about taking her for granted, and then Tina Cohen Chang performed her big diva number. Donning a pink leotard, Tina Madonna’d about the school yard convincingly enough to win Glee’s diva competition of the week, which seemed so incredibly inconsequential compared to all the big revelations we got in the last 10 minutes of the episode. Naturally, the week Tina finally won something would be the week that it didn't matter.

Way more important? Finn and Emma kissed. Finn kissed Emma! He'd been filling in for Glee club, and apparently he thought that meant he was filling in for Mr. Schu in all aspects of his life. Anything goes once Finn learned that Rachel had changed her relationship status to “Shacked Up.” He confided in Ms. Pillsbury that he was having a hard time with the break up. She was having a hard time planning the wedding – Emma and Will are apparently getting married next week – and... why am I explaining any of this? The only part that’s important is that at the end of the episode, after Finn had helped her with some wedding decisions, Emma started having an OCD freakout about getting married again. And what did Finn do? He KISSED HER. Did ANYONE see that coming? We’ll have to wait until next week for the fall out, because as soon as he kissed her, he freaked out and immediately left her office. I’m no psychic, but I don’t think this is going to have fans cheering quite as much as Nick and Jess’ big kiss on New Girl.
