The out characters played by Chris
Colfer and Darren Criss on Glee got hitched during a double
wedding on Friday's episode.
The Wedding featured the
nuptials of Brittany Pierce (played by Heather Morris) and Santana
Lopez (Naya Rivera).
Blaine Anderson (Criss) and Kurt Hummel
(Colfer), who broke off their engagement last season and started
dating new people, surprised fans when they agreed to exchange vows
at the prompting of Brittany and Santana.
“What I think is groundbreaking is
the response that our characters got,” Colfer told PEOPLE
of the wedding. “That is what is truly groundbreaking about this
story – the love that straight people, gay people and just the
world has for all this.”
The actors said that were surprised by
the popularity of Kurt and Blaine's romance.
“This is something that kind of grew
legs of its own and it has now become not so much the relationship
that our characters have on the show, but, like, this other
creature...” Criss said.
“It's like the Kraken!” Colfer
interrupted, a reference to the legendary sea monster.
“It's this monstrous thing that can
do big things – but it's also a little scary!” Criss said.
