We’re so Glee-king excited!

Fans of the FOX musical dramedy tuned in on Friday expecting to see the nuptials of Brittany (Heather Morris) and Santana (real-life newlywed Naya Rivera). In fact, they were surprised with twice the wedded bliss.

Warning: Spoilers ahead.

Along with the fans at home, Brittany and Santana’s guests were treated to a two-for-one ceremony when Brittana shared the spotlight – and the aisle – with Blaine (Darren Criss) and Kurt (Chris Colfer).

Kurt and Blaine had broken off their engagement before the beginning of the sixth and final season of the show but were convinced to exchange vows by Brittany, Santana and even the typically cold-hearted Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch).

“What I think is groundbreaking is the response that our characters got,” Colfer says of the nuptials in a video exclusive to PEOPLE. “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 popularity of Kurt and Blaine’s relationship is something that has surprised even Colfer and Criss.

Says Criss, “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 …”

Colfer interjects, “It’s like the Kraken!”

Continues Criss, “It’s this monstrous thing that can do big things – but it’s also a little scary!”

One thing the two actors aren’t so thrilled about is the Brangelina-esque name of their on-screen relationship: Klaine.

“Klaine sounds like a country in Europe that you would rather not go to – you know, that you’d rather skip over,” jokes Colfer.

And as if two weddings weren’t enough for true Gleeks, it was also revealed in the episode that if Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz) and Artie (Kevin McHale) aren’t married by the time they’re 30 years old, they’ll get married, too.

We’ll mark our calendars just in case.
