BLAM! SLAINE! We’d like to officially petition that Glee allow the New Directions to dress up as superheroes every week, because watching Blaine (Darren Criss) and Sam (Chord Overstreet) dressed up as Nightbird and The Blonde Chameleon and breaking into Dalton Academy on a trophy rescue mission was just about the coolest thing we’ve ever seen.
Glee Season 4, Episode 7: “Dynamic Duets” introduced us to comic book superhero alter-egos for each of the New Directions. But it wasn’t all fun and games and saving the world. There was evil afoot!
It turns out that the Warblers have a new lead singer, and he wants nothing more than to convince Blaine to return to Dalton. Hunter (Nolan Gerard Funk) and the Warblers tried every trick they could think of, but in the end, Blaine still decided that McKinley is his true home. (Thank goodness you finally came to your senses, Blaine Warbler! We couldn’t imagine the New Directions without you.)
In addition to all the drama surrounding Blaine, who is still consumed with guilt over cheating on Kurt (Chris Colfer) with Eli C., there were plenty of new developments in the Jake(Jacob Artist)-Marley (Melissa Benoist)-Ryder (Blake Jenner) love triangle. We were fully on board for Ryley after that romantic kiss last week.
But now... there’s just something about Jake. We know he’s more troubled that Ryder, and he has a lot less of his life figured out. But he’s sincere, sweet at heart, and we really think that he and Marley would make a cute couple.
We’ve just had a great turkey dinner. We’ve had a slice (or three) of Grandma’s pumpkin pie. And now, there was a great episode of Glee to cap off a perfect Thanksgiving night. So what did you think of this evening’s Glee? Did it live up to all your expectations, or did you find yourself walking away wanting more? (One thing we don’t want more of: Our Aunt Susan’s stuffing. It’s a bit too mushy for our tastes.)
