Chris Colfer says his gay teen character on the Fox musical-comedy Glee is in love with Darren Criss' Blaine Anderson, but that Blaine doesn't have the same feelings.

Colfer's Kurt Hummel and Blaine are now singing in the same glee club after Kurt fled McKinley High because officials decided against disciplining bully Dave Karofsky, played by Max Adler, a closeted gay teen.

Glee ringmaster Ryan Murphy has promised romance this season for the troubled Kurt, but so far the show has only hinted at where that might be found.

“Kurt's in love with Blaine but it's not reciprocated,” Colfer told PEOPLE at the Fox Television Critics Association party. “But we're working on it. Seriously, he needs a romantic payoff.”

In an interview with E! Online, Criss was equally vague.

“There's going to be some fun things,” Criss said. “Every day Chris and I are both equally curious to see what's going to happen between the two of those guys. We're definitely going to start seeing some layers to the two of them. The pink elephant in the room will finally be addressed, let's put it that way.”

Which leaves everyone wondering about the much hyped February 8 Valentine's Day episode, which, according to TV Guide's William Keck, will include Kurt and Blaine crooning to Robin Thicke's When I Get You Alone “outside a Gap store as Blaine prepares to profess his love.”

Keck says a profession of love, Criss says the pink elephant will be addressed, and Colfer says Blaine isn't reciprocating the love. Sounds like a recipe for heartbreak.
