When it comes to someone who should be teaching people how to sing, Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) is about as qualified as, say, Paris Hilton. (Heck, even those dogs that sing “Jingle Bells” are probably more qualified than Sue is.) But Sue’s tough love may just be what the kids need for Nationals, where Sue wants the gang to win the $10K (which the owners of Instagram would refer to as pocket change). How many episodes will it be before Sue quits the glee club in a fit of rage? We’re guessing an episode and a half, but we shall see.
4. Finn is enticed by California girls. (Katy Perry would be proud.)
Puck (Mark Salling) clearly has a knack for corrupting his peers, as he gets Finn (Cory Monteith) to start doing a little California dreamin’. (Cue up the theme song from The OC.) However, Rachel’s (Lea Michele) refusal to listen to Finn’s (admittedly shaky) plans for the pool business leads Finn to wonder if they’re a good match. Gulp. Does anyone else think that a wedding between these two is starting to seem about as likely as the odds of Cooper Anderson winning an Oscar? We’re worried about them, people!
3. Kurt is obsessed with Blaine’s bro!
Plenty of you think Blaine (Darren Criss) should be getting less screentime, but that certainly did not happen this week. Instead, we got everything from Blaine in the shower (no complaints here!), to a flashback featuring an adorable mini-Blaine, to Blaine and his brother Cooper (Matt Bomer) blowing us away on “Somebody That I Used To Know.” And how hilarious was the scene with Kurt (Chris Colfer) as the Margaret Thatcher-Dog puppet? (Come to think of it, if the recent film Iron Lady had featured Margaret Thatcher as a dog puppet, we might have actually seen it.)
2. Becky has some advice for Sue and her baby girl.
We had been assuming that Sue’s pregnancy would lead to unfit-parent shenanigans a la the guys finding a baby in The Hangover, but instead things took a detour to Serious Town as Sue learned that her baby might have Down syndrome. Then again, it was even more shocking to hear Sue refer to Schue (Matthew Morrison) and Emma (Jayma Mays) as her friends. Sue has referred to Schue as a lot of different things over the years, but “friend”? Not one of them.
Quinn (Dianna Agron) with a smile on her face? First time for everything! And even though Artie (Kevin McHale) is worried that she’s not realistic about her future, it was refreshing to see her upbeat instead of wallowing. Plus, Quinn also spent time with Joe (Samuel Larsen)and encouraged him to join New Directions, making us wonder if these two will soon be hot and heavy — in a very chaste way, of course. Plus, if you’re looking to turn up the heat and need some firewood, you can apparently find plenty in Joe’s hair. Can’t get enough Gleetastic goodness? Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter!
