During last week’s Glee episode, we couldn’t help but notice a handful of weird plot holes and random things that just didn’t quite add up. Then in this week’s Season 3, Episode 16: “Saturday Night Glee-ver” — the same thing happened again. Think you can already guess some of the what made this week’s list? Take a look at our to 5 logic fails from Tuesday’s episode.
1. Apparently Finn wants to be an actor now?
While his girlfriend, Rachel (Lea Michele), has known since the womb that she’s destined for the Broadway stage, high school jock Finn (Cory Monteith) hasn’t exactly been planning his career that far in advance. Still, when Finn revealed that he’s always secretly wanted to be an actor — it definitely took us by surprise. Since when has Finn ever expressed an interest in acting? He didn’t even try out for the lead in West Side Story.
We always pictured Finn as more of the musician type. Between all his history with singing and his well-documented love of playing the drums, having Finn join an NYC band or go after a career in music feels like a much more logical choice.
2. Rory, Sugar, and Quinn are nowhere to be found.
Obviously, Rory (Damian McGinty) really is a magical leprechaun, because he somehow developed the power to disappear completely from the entire episode. As did his V-day sweetheart Sugar (Vanessa Lengies) — and even Quinn (Dianna Agron), for the most part. While we know that Dianna Agron was on vacation in France during filming for the episode, we’re still not sure what happened to Rory or Sugar. Perhaps they both just randomly decided to cut class for the day. Hey, anything to get out of disco week... Right?
3. Jesse threatens to “fire” Wade from Vocal Adrenaline.
Last time we checked, you couldn’t fire a high school student from an extracurricular activity. Kick them off? Sure. Bar them from participating? Absolutely. But fire them? Not so much. Show choir is not a job, and we’re pretty sure Jesse’s not paying Wade any sort of salary to perform.
4. Half the songs were sung in falsetto, yet Kurt barely got any solos.
Please! Kurt was born to sing falsetto. The kid has a range most singers would kill for, and he barely even got a chance sing this episode at all. Will (Matthew Morrison), Finn, Blaine (Darren Criss), Mike (Harry Shum Jr.), and Joe (Samuel Larsen) all hit some crazy high notes — but where was Kurt? Other than a few minor solos, he seemed uncharacteristically silent for most of the episode.
5. Where’d that disco floor come from — and how did the New Ds afford it?
One of our favorite parts of this week’s episode was the fact that Glee actually flew in the original Saturday Night Fever light-up dance floor. Still, we can’t help but wonder: How on earth did the New Directions managed to swing that?
The McKinley high glee club is famously short on cash. Benefit concerts, bake sales... They have to work hard just to get enough saved up for competition fees. No way they’d have the extra dough lying around to rent a cool disco dance floor. Unless, of course, Sugar’s super-rich father decided to fork over the cash to pay for it. There’s just one problem with that theory. Sugar didn’t exist this week.
