Kurt is quitting glee? Say it ain’t so! Then again, maybe his decision to switch schools is sad now but good in the long run, sort of like when George Clooney left ER to pursue his film career. (Let’s just hope Kurt’s decision works out better than Mischa Barton’s choice to leave The OC to pursue her film career.)
The wedding-centric episode kicks off with Burt and Carole telling Kurt and Finn that they’ve decided to get married. Kurt is thrilled (and already has the wedding colors picked out), but Finn looks shocked.
Meanwhile, Finn is further dismayed as Sam continues his pursuit of Quinn. Sam even asks Quinn to be his girlfriend and wear a promise ring, but she tells him she has to think about it. (She later agrees to it, and it’s a good thing, considering that Sam cares more about a ring than anyone since Frodo.)
Not one to let anyone have their moment in the sun, Sue decides to have her own wedding. Who cares that she’s not actually dating anyone? She’ll just marry herself! (Uh-oh! Let’s not give Jennifer Aniston any ideas, okay, Sue?) Come to think of it, this is the weirdest televised wedding since that Pee Wee’s Playhouse episode where Pee Wee married that bowl of fruit salad. (Anyone else see that episode? Or was that just us?)
The glee club decides to stand up to Karofsky, who has continued bullying Kurt. So Mike and Artie confront Karofsky in the locker room, and let’s just say that they have about as much chance for success as whatever movie happens to open on the same weekend as a Harry Potter movie.
Karofsky attacks, but Sam and his fists of fury come to the rescue, making the golden boy the stud of the glee club. (Of course, choosing the toughest member of New Directions is like choosing the funniest episode of According to Jim. In other words, it’s not saying much.)
The violent escapade spurs a meet-and-greet between Burt and Karofsky’s father Paul, a professorial type who is played by a former Lost cast member. (A Harry Potter reference and a Lost reference in the same recap? This article is getting geeky even for us!)
It’s now the day of the wedding, which makes us wonder how quickly they planned this wedding. (Even Britney Spears would say it was a little rushed.)
Santana tells Finn to come clean about sleeping with her, in order to regain his popularity, but Finn is reluctant, since Rachel thinks that both she and Finn are virgins. But we’re thinking that Santana and Finn’s secret is one of those secrets that’s going to be hard to keep quiet, much like the secret about the fact that Dorothy in Tootsie is actually a man. (Seriously — how did no one in that movie realize that?!)
Sue’s wedding was less successful, as it mainly involved her bickering with her estranged mother. (But how hilarious was Carol Burnett as a Nazi hunter? More, please!) And Sue showed surprising compassion with the Kurt situation, stepping down as principal when the school board vetoed her decision to expel Karofsky. Who knew that Sue had that in her?
So this episode really provided a wide range of emotions. But before we go, we want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving! And we don’t know about you, but we’re just thankful we don’t have to be subjected to Mischa Barton’s wooden “acting” anytime soon. In fact, that’s something we can all be thankful for!
