5. Shirtless dudes as far as the eye can see.
Has the economy caused the price of shirts to skyrocket? It seems that way, with the New Directions guys stripping down for their calendar shoot, and Brody (Dean Geyer) following suit (or should we say, birthday suit) to support Rachel (Lea Michele). So which bare guy made the best impression on us? It’s probably a tie between Sam and Blaine — but c’mon, we loved them all.
4. “Fondue for Two” — but we wish it were “Fondue Forever”!
We could seriously watch a full hour of Brittany’s (Heather Morris) amazing “Fondue for Two.” And this week’s installment was as delightful as any, between Marley (Melissa Benoist) learning the hard way to let that cheese cool off, and Brittany chiding Lord Tubbington for being a slumlord. Plus, now we know if performing doesn’t work out for Marley, she has a career as a pet psychic.
3. Jake and Marley feel the love.
Glee is not a slow-paced show, and that was certainly the case with how quickly Jake (Jacob Artist) and Marley said their “I love yous.” (Uh, didn’t they officially become an item the week before?) But they said those words in uber-cute fashion, as Marley tries saying them but gets cold feet, so Jake encourages her with a fab performance of “Let Me Love You,” followed by a sweet calendar autograph. Who knew sexy calendars could bring people together?
2. A little Blam bonding — and a reminder of Samcedes’s former glory!
We’ve been worried that Brittany might stay at McKinley forever, so we’re relieved about her stellar SAT scores. Sam wasn’t quite so lucky, however, with his monkey-level result. But we wouldn’t have wanted it any other way, as Blaine cheers him up with an inspirational video from a wide variety of friends, including previous girlfriends like Santana (Naya Rivera) and Mercedes (Amber Riley)! At this point, we doubt it’s humanly possible for Blam to get any cuter.
1. Rachel gets a “love”-ly visit from Quinntana!
It’s typically hard to imagine Santana and Quinn (Dianna Agron) as the voices of reason on this show, but they were perfect in that role this week, as they convinced Rachel to keep her robe on in the student film. Between Santana’s hint that NYC is right for her, not to mention their phenomenal rendition of “Love Song,” we only wish this unlikely trio had started hanging out together sooner!
