They play a lesbian couple who mentor Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss).
In tonight’s season finale, “All or Nothing,” Duke plays a jewellery store owner named Jan who meets Blaine while the latter is shopping for a ring for his on-again, off-again boyfriend, Kurt. Jan sees a bit of herself in Blaine and invites the high school senior fired up about the advancements in marriage equality and his beloved to dinner at Breadstix for a double date with her partner, Liz (Baxter).
“Her mother instincts come out with Blaine and she and Liz want to give these boys some of the first-hand history of what it was like to be gay in the ’60s and ’70s,” Duke told The Hollywood Reporter. “No matter what they’ve been called, they’ve stayed together through it all.”
“We just present a good example of a loving, long-term relationship. We aren’t telling them to go for it [in terms of marriage]. “We get to talk about how history touched us,” said Baxter.
