5. We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: We love Roz!
We’ve always known that Roz (NeNe Leakes) loves dishing out the sassy insults, and this episode was no exception, as she referred to Santana (Naya Rivera) as “Salsa Caliente” or mentioned Sue’s (Jane Lynch) winged baby. But we also learned this week that Roz can show compassion, calling out the glee girls for badgering Beiste (Dot-Marie Jones). Our only question now: How long do we have to freakin’ wait until she gets a song? We want to hear Roz belt one out already!
4. Brittany phones home.
It’s hard to believe the student-body elections were such a big deal at the start of the season, considering that no one ever mentions what Brittany does as president these days. However, just when we were starting to worry that Brit had forgotten that she was even elected, we finally hear her discuss being president. What’s more, she uses the occasion to bring up her alien prom idea. (Some people like kissing booths; Brit prefers a probing booth.) We assume Mulder and Scully would be proud.
3. Beiste’s relationship breaks our heart.
We’ve been longing for Coach Beiste to get back on the show, since we loved her fun West Side Story storyline. In fact, the last we saw of Beiste was her quickie marriage to Cooter, which we had thought was cute at the time, although we now know that Cooter has been abusive. It was sweet to see Sue and Roz support Beiste — along with that amazing “Shake It Out” cover by the glee girls in Beiste’s honor! — but we just hope that Beiste gets the courage to actually move out. And soon.
2. Looks like Puck was on the five-year plan.
This week, Puck (Mark Salling) tried studying for a test (first time for everything!) instead of tickling his teacher’s thigh, but the last-minute effort didn’t pay off. May this be a lesson to you: Never put your academic future in Finn’s (Cory Monteith) hands. Puck also reunited with his estranged father, which left him $500 lighter. And speaking of Finn, we know one profession that he shouldn’t pursue: police sketch artist. (We’re still not sure why Blaine [Darren Criss] was supposed to hide behind that bear.)
1. Shocker alert: Kurt impresses Carmen — but Rachel doesn’t!
The odds of Rachel (Lea Michele) giving a subpar vocal performance are like the odds of you ordering a pizza and it being only so-so — it just doesn’t happen. And yet that was the case this week, with Rachel flubbing “Don’t Rain on My Parade” twice, and then Carmen (Whoopi Goldberg) saying it’s two strikes and you’re out. Luckily, Kurt (Chris Colfer) — with his nerves of steel — was unflappable, as he changed songs at a moment’s notice and it paid off. But we’re sure his “Music of the Night” would have given us chills as well.
