Rachel and Blaine seem to have met before as they are seen talking in the Season Two episode, The Sue Sylvester Shuffle, as friends. The two share a drunken, sloppy kiss in an imprompt game of spin-the-bottle in Blame It on the Alcohol. This is where their relationship sparks, as Rachel claims that she found a new duet partner in Blaine. Afterwards, they sing Don't You Want Me, and they seem to have interest in one another. They go on a date, but when Rachel kisses Blaine while he is in line ordering coffee in The Lima Bean he confirms that he is '100% gay.' They were good friends in Season 3 and starred in West Side Story together. In the fourth season, they barely interact due to Rachel moving to New York for college. At McKinley, members of New Directions go head-to-head in the competitive run to be The New Rachel. Blaine eventually wins this role. Rachel is thrilled to see Blaine several times, during Kurt and Blaine's Skype calls, and also when Blaine visits Kurt, Rachel and Finn in The Break-Up.
