Glee’s third season has officially begun! Noticeably absent from the action was McKinley High’s resident bully, Dave Karofsky. However, don’t call him down for the count just yet.
Monday it was revealed that Karofsky’s will indeed return and that it would be in a “shocking moment!” As TV Line reported, “He will be [back] come late October, when Kurt has a very awkward run-in with him at a gay bar.”
A gay bar?! Ryan Murphy may be treading thin water with already concerned parents with this sort of scenario. There has been a lot of debate about how far it is socially responsible to go before it becomes an ethical debate on whether or not their kids should watch the show. Could Murphy be pushing the envelope too far this time?
With that being said, it does seem like Karofsky may finally be learning to accept who he is, and perhaps Kurt and Blaine just want to have a raucous night out on the town together?
Will this awkward encounter lead to more bullying at school for Kurt and others? Will Karofsky finally admit to his peers that he is indeed gay and become a positive role model for other in-the-closet teens? Max Adler has said he wants his character to accept himself, so perhaps, just perhaps he’ll be granted his wish.
What do you think about any of McKinely’s finest caught up in the gay bars? Is high school too young to be caught up in any bar? Do you think Ryan Murphy is pushing the envelope too far?
