I think it’s an important character. It’s showing a dude who happens to be gay and comfortable with it, which we haven’t really seen on the show. Darren’s character is a gay guy, and you can see that, and I don’t think you can see it as much with Sebastian. I think it’s also important because it’s introducing a love triangle for Blaine and Kurt. It’s going to show these two aren’t together because they’re the only two gay characters. We don’t really know yet if I’m going to split them up yet, but this is ending their honeymoon phase and making them more like the rest of the couples on the show. I think it’s important to show, because it’s not like there’s couples and gay couples. Introducing some similar drama that everyone has seen before.
