This week’s Glee did not disappoint, as it was packed with crazy twists and jaw-dropping moments — especially with Marley taking a spill. Here are our picks for the top five OMG moments from Season 4, Episode 8: “Thanksgiving.”
5. We don’t want to cheer for the Warblers, but we can’t help it!
Are the Warblers the same without Blaine (Darren Criss)? Well, that’s a stupid question — but they were still pretty darn good during Sectionals. We loved seeing one song led by Sebastian (Grant Gustin) and one led by their adorable new captain, Hunter (Nolan Gerard Funk). No, we don’t think that “Whistle” was the most appropriate choice for a high school competition, but somehow they still performed a rendition that we wanted to replay about a hundred times.
4. Rachel and Brody are in a fowl mood.
Is it wrong that we still kinda want to see Brody (Dean Geyer) and Rachel (Lea Michele) hook up, despite the fact that we sometimes really hate him? There are times when he definitely doesn’t seem right for Rachel and even feels unnecessary on the show... and then we see them do a bit of poultry-prep flirting, and suddenly we’re smitten again. (Translation: Stop talking about Cassandra’s (Kate Hudson) ass, Brody! We can already tell that it’s amazing — we have eyes.)
3. Quinn’s back and ready to slap.
The only thing better than Quinn (Dianna Agron) returning? Quinn returning and also slapping people! Sure, that slap war between her and Santana (Naya Rivera) was a little intense — as was Santana’s diss about Quinn not seeing Beth — but you could tell that they still loved each other in spite of it all. If you ask us, they’re both genius slappers.
2. Kurt and Blaine finally give us a glimpse of hope.
We dug “Let’s Have a Kiki” for all of its delightful insanity, but what we really loved about Rachel and Kurt’s (Chris Colfer) impromptu Thanksgiving dance party was the Klaine phone call that unfolded in its midst. We’re not sure that they’ll be getting together soon, so hearing them both say “I love you” was probably as much as we can hope for right now. Long story short, the Christmas episode can’t get here soon enough.
1. Marley falls. Our hearts sink.
There’s no doubt that we’re loving Jake (Jacob Artist) and Marley (Melissa Benoist) together — and there’s also no doubt that the girl needs help with body image issues. It appears that her collapse following “Gangnam Style” has put New Directions’ Sectionals placement in jeopardy, but more importantly, we want her on a healthy path. And we’re not ones to condone violence, but if Santana or Quinn ended up slapping Kitty (Becca Tobin) one of these days, we wouldn’t complain.
