Maybe it was just me, but I feel like “Glee” was digging deep on Tuesday night.
The episode was all about things being slightly off, and the glee club trying to get back to where they once were - sort of like trying to rediscover the glee in “Glee.” (I’ve felt like that a bit this season. There have been some episodes that I loved, loved, loved, while others not so much.)
It seemed like the “Glee” kids were also feeling a little disjointed - no one could stand Rachel, and I have to agree. That chick has become super annoying.
She’s been throwing fits about everything lately, and this week was all about her anger over losing a solo at Sectionals, plus her discovery that Finn had slept with Santana. I’m getting sick of listening to her whine, for real. You don’t have to worry about me crying for you Miss Rachel because like Quinn said, I’m starting to want to smack you one. I didn’t even feel bad for her when Finn dumped her. She needs an attitude adjustment and quick.
I applauded Mr. Schuester for his decision (with the prodding of Emma) to let some of the other students step up and get some shine. I wholeheartedly agree. I could never get enough Brittany, and watching her relationship develop with Artie has been some sweet TV. I love that they have paired the most physical character on the show (her dance moves are CRAZY) with the kid in the wheelchair. Way to work the opposites attract theme “Glee.”
I mean, now that Kurt has transferred and is an official member of The Warblers, it was time to mix things up. The world has gone a little crazy with Kurt fearful for his life, Rachel no longer the star and Puck mellowing out, so why not step out of the comfort zone?
The show did just that with Quinn and Sam fronting New Directions for a little “Dirty Dancing” duet on “I’ve Had the Time of My Life” and Santana stepping up to smash it on “Valerie.” Brittany and Mike Chang’s dance routine just helped to amp a really great performance. It totally gave me goose bumps, just like I used to get in the early days of the show.
They pulled together and reconnected with their love of the music, and that's what I feel like lots of us Gleeks needed to do too. That being said, and I may be in the minority here, but I just didn’t love The Warblers version of “Hey Soul Sister.” Then again, that could be because that song has been played to death.
I was almost as shocked by the tie at the competition as I was with Emma eloping with the dentist in Vegas. I predict that she is going to regret that move, but I also predict that even once she is free again there won’t be smooth sailing for her and Mr. Schuester. Something tells me that we haven’t heard the last of his ex-wife Terri, and I wouldn’t be shocked if she ends up pregnant for real this time after their earlier hook-up.
Your thoughts on the show? Any predictions for what happens next?
