Lately, there seems to be a huge difference of opinion on the past few episodes of Glee. Some have felt that they have focused too much on Kurt’s character (which I don’t see as a bad thing) while others like myself have simply adored them. Was this week’s episode any different? Read on to find out!
Will walks into the teachers’ lounge and offers a Emma a ticket to sectionals, since she attended last year, and it sort of has become “their thing.” She accepts, but not before correctly predicting what Will has planned for the performance. She reminds him that he has a wealth of talent to pull from, which leads him to some restructuring. I know it’s not possible, but isn’t this
First order, Finn and Rachel will not sing the opening song; that honor goes to Sam and Quinn. Not only that, Mike and Brittany will get a dance number, and the biggest surprise of all, Rachel is not getting a solo (and neither is Mercedes, who naturally thought she was next in line. If I were Will, she would have been my choice.) This does not go over too well with the little diva, and even with Finn, who states that you don’t remove the star quarterback before the big game. Santana points out that it’s easy to say when you’re the quarterback, which leads to some heated words between her and Rachel. Naturally, Santana uses this as an opportunity to let it slip that her and Finn hooked up. First no solo, and now this? What is a star in the making to do?
Now for the moment I have been waiting for: Kurt’s first day at Dalton. We first see our other diva looking in the mirror, proudly putting on his uniform, and then going to his first Warbler practice. That is where the happiness stops. Kurt’s ideas are shot down on the spot by the upperclassmen. He is disappointed, but Blaine reminds him that they are a team, and offers him a chance to audition for a solo.
Meanwhile, Brittany is freaking out about the dance routine. Artie tries to convince her that she will be great, but she just doesn’t believe him. In one of the sweetest moments I have seen on the show, Artie pulls out a comb and hands it to Brittany, telling her that it is magic and if she has it, she won’t mess up. We know for a second Artie doesn’t actually believe in the magic comb, but it was great to see him do something to give Brittany piece of mind.
