Glee's “The First Time” may have been a doozy but the drama at McKinley High only gets juicier this week and we just had to share the buzz. Here are some details about the Santana (Naya Rivera) coming out storyline and more from Episode 6, “Mash Off.”
First, in non-lesbian news, Quinn (Dianna Agron) grows frustrated that her plan to have Shelby (Idina Menzel) declared an unfit mother to Baby Beth fails and decides to defect to The Troubletones to keep her enemy close. But before Quinn can stir up more dramz, Puck (Mark Salling) rats her out to Shelby (and by "rats her out," we mean he has a complete meltdown about it and CRIES).Shelby ultimately denies Quinn a spot on her rival glee club and the two get into a major blow out, with Quinn vowing to get Beth back by any means necessary. Um, we'll pretend like this is remotely plausible in the real world of adoption and just move on, okay?
Luckily, Shelby has a more positive encounter with her biological daughter, Rachel (Lea Michele), when she asks her help in getting into that art school in New York.
Of course, we also heard of a massive fight between Finn (Cory Monteith) and Santana, and, as it turns out, it runs a bit deeper than just her rivalry with his new protege, Rory (Damian McGinty). To cope with her anger over Mercedes (Amber Riley) being voted head of The Troubletones instead of her, Santana starts talking massive amounts of trash against Finn, and in the heat of the moment, he tells Santana to come out of the closet already so she can stop making everyone as miserable as she is. Le burn!
Unfortch, someone involved in the Congressional race overhears this, and uses it against Sue (Jane Lynch), starting a smear campaign called "Sue Supports Lesbians!" They reveal that she has a lesbian as her head cheerleader (with actual photos of Santana!) and insinuate that she may, in fact, herself be a lesbian. Um, again, we'll pretend like it's legal to use photos of a minor without consent as part of a political campaign, and point out that this obviously means Santana is completely devastated.
