Glee 222 Recap: New York State of Mind Control

I had this great idea for a business. See — I don’t really have any marketable skills and nobody’s interested in my English Literature degree. But there must be something I’m really, really, really good at, right? So I sat here and thought about what that thing might be. What am I good at?

Then it hit me!

I’m good at telling the powers-that-be how tofix their shit for next season. I’m good at doing this while sitting my Mom’s couch in my ex’s pajama pants as the waters of all the Great Lakes slowly flood her neighborhood streets.

[I was just bitching about recapping Glee to my girlfriend and she said “glee is a thing that i feel when i’m with you”! Isn’t that adorable?!]

Anyhow where was I? Yes. Here on the couch in my wet socks (I walked outside to observe Noah’s Ark), eating my tomato soup. Anyhoo, I’ve got a few BRILLIANT ideas for Will because SPOILER ALERT his team didn’t even place in the Top Ten at Nationals.


Okay — let me start out by saying that I’ve got no show choir experience ’cause my singing voice sounds like Sookie Stackhouse’s screaming voice. But I am smart IN GENERAL.

So. Firstly, it helps to pick a song that really “matches” your group. It’s especially useful to look back on the numbers already performed this season for various insipid, perplexing reasons and select one to sing at The Big Contest. Why surprise yourself with a song allegedly composed in the hotel room where the Glee children were locked up and subsequently escaped to play instruments, kiss each other and eat hot dogs in the cool New York City day when you could pick one of the millions of songs you can access on iTunes, or even at your local record store?

Tip Number Two — Ever thought about giving solos to your most talented singers? I know, I know — I’M A GENIUS! — but spread me on a Saltine and stick me in a vintage lunchbox if I’m not onto something with this. Don’t select songs based on which will most effectively forward the (again, inane) plotline, Mr. Doofster, pick the right song for your SINGERS! Like maybe Kurt, Mercedes and Rachel? Santana? Give the people the solos they deserve!

But it’s a live performance with dancing, right? Well, how about featuring your most talented dancers? Giving Finn two seconds of aired dance-time was good for a laugh, but not for your success. Don’t match Brittany up with who she dated, match her up with the other male dancer in your squad, and leave ’em at the front to sport their stuff.

Just an idea.


We open in New York City – UH HUH – center of the universe – SING IT, GIRL! — where the entire Glee Club has conspired to eye-blast the entire citizenry of Manhattan via Bright Color Overload. Seriously it’s like GapKids and Gymboree had a baby and that baby invaded the tkts booth. Kurt’s foregoing the Bright Colors trend however. Kurt is dressed, as he so often is, for battle.

Little Boxes Little Boxes Little Boxes Made of Ticky-Tacky

Rachel’s snagged tickets to Cats from some guy’s asshole and Quinn reminds her that it closed ten years ago badum-CHING! and instead of pooling their taffy money together to catch a matinee of Mama Mia!, the kids do what children are so wont to do and create their very own musical on the streets of New York City.

Live Nude Girls, Across the Street, Right Now. Who's WITH ME?

Not yet though.

Also? Lea Michele playing a character awestruck by the majestry and giant billboards of New York City is like seeing Brian Kinney play a virgin.

I never thought I'd get the chance to eat in the flagship olive garden restaurant

Back in the hotel room, all 12 kids are lying around thinking about ponies when Will bursts in to let them know they’re all on lockdown in the hotel until they write an award-winning song.

anyone up for a round of cluedo?

Will would help but he can’t because he’s gotta hit up The Hawaiin Tropic Zone restaurant and have a chili dog or go be in a Broadway Musical or sing a song from Matthew Morrison’s upcoming album. Something like that.

I sure hope nobody’s parents find out that Will’s not only leaving the children unchaperoned, but actually locking the children in rooms with beds, alcohol, food and telephones. Will wants two solid verses when he gets back. Brittany starts tracing her cup onto her notebook, foreshadowing Brittany’s upcoming performance — probably the highlight of the season — of a bouncy, lighthearted number about a thing we all know & love —  CUPS!

Brittany’s entry into the Nationals selection pool is called “My Cup.”

One Girl, Some Guys, and a Cup

After confirming that Brittany looks great even in white pants and that the song is indeed about cups, they realize they cannot sit down to write until they’ve stood up to live. Puck especially, that guy has gotta be at least 32.

Quinn is feeling extra-lazy today — “We don’t need to write songs for Nationals, New York’s gonna write it for us.” Was that her big surprise for this week?

do i have to carry this guitar around all episode

Puck points out that New York is the “artist capital of the world.” He probably just saw Factory Girl.



To the confusing beats of a “New York, New York”/”I Love New York” mashup, the children galavant / leap throughout the city like flight attendants on amphetamines, passing a parade of New York City cliches on horseback carrying newspapers/frankfurters/briefcases/guns.

that's right. Five fingers allll up in there

The New York City that Glee Club is selling is void of drug dealers, messy crowded overpriced apartments, overflowing trash cans and over-emotive hipsters. It’s void of nightclubs and adventures and drugs and sex and booze and dirt and all the ugly/beautiful things that make New York City the most excruciating and miserable place to live and therefore also the most exhilarating, thrilling place to live.


Yes, the children have fallen in love with the same itinerary given to the rich suburban kids on Teen Tour. Most impressive is, of course, Santana, who in her green mini-dress and yellow mini-jacket and black maxi-boots, steals every scene she’s in and even the ones she’s not in, except for the ones Brittany’s in, because sheI mean — duh.

It’s a catchy, earnest number reminiscent of the 50s musicals this episode was clearly inspired by. Also Brittany’s pulling off white waist-high pants, in case you missed that.

A huge chunk of this week’s episode is devoted to, SURPRISE, Finn & Rachel’s wormy little backless love affair, which is kicked into high gear when Finn’s bros tell him to stop asking me on formspring if the straight girl he has a crush on has a crush on him too and actually go ask Rachel out. They also agree with him that a Finn-Rachel Duet is the “way to win nationals,” I think they’ve all been glamoured by Pam.


“Anything’s possible here. You need to ask her out tonight,” says Puck. Is it possible that I might care about Finn and Rachel? NO!

Meanwhile on the girls side of camp, the girls have ravaged the feather-stuffed pillows of the hotel room. They’re beating each other with pillows and giggling psychotically as Rachel tries to write the next “Trouty Mouth.”

you thought johnny depp knew how to trash a hotel room?

Finn texts Rachel and commands she meet him in Central Park for an emergency meeting of the Male Lesbian Support Group. Bring juice & flowers!

here, i saved up all year to buy you this boquet from a street vendor

The potential love-birds stroll through the gorgeous Central Park ravine, probably talking about one of the 500 things they have in common, like finding water refreshing and thinking Breaded Fried Okra is the best Fixin on the Cracker Barrel menu.

It’s just like a romantic comedy. How do we know that? Because Finn & Rachel keep saying “it’s just like in those romantic comedies” over and over.

it looks just like it did in the muppets take manhattan

Patti LuPone drops in for a delightful cameo in Sardi’s, Kermit the Frog’s favorite restaurant and makes Rachel promise never to give up on her dreams. PHEW! I was worried she might end up barefoot and pregnant in the Pizza Hut parking lot or something.

mama rose is always here for you rachel

Following their starstruck dinner, a motley crew of male actors stalk Rachel & Finn around an unspecified area of New York City (although Bedford, the street they pass, is in Brooklyn) singing that song from Lady & The Tramp.

Finn wants to talk about how he wants to be with Rachel since he basically dumped Quinn for Rachel and now his prospects are looking dim as Rachel explains she’s fallen in love with a CITY, sorta like Carrie Bradshaw in that one episode. You know the one?

Why can’t she be with Finn? Because after graduation, she will charge head-first into her Manhattan Destiny. What does this have to do with Finn? Nothing, really, especially considering Rachel Berry’s been pretty consistently interested in a Broadway Career since the pilot and that teenagers date one another despite divergent collegial plans every day right here in America. Anyhow, whatever.

Finn goes for the makeout but Rachel’s grabbing takeout — she “can’t” she says really dramatically, turning from him and walking in the opposite direction despite the fact that they’re staying at the same hotel.

maybe she knows a shortcut

The next morning the children are napping on top of their notebooks, because writing songs is exhausting! and Kurt gay-bullies Rachel into turning her frown upside down, taking off those Valentine’s Day Wrapping Paper inspired jammies and hitting the town! There are so many clichès yet unexplored!


We cut to Tiffany’s, where Kurt’s hair, looking seven kinds of 80s-new-wave fantastic, is hanging out with the Rest of Kurt and also with Rachel Berry.  Did anyone else grow up thinking Tiffany’s was a restaurant that served really good breakfast?

Rachel tells Kurt she’s gonna tell him a secret. Don’t get too excited, it’s not a lesbian secret which are the only kind we care about around here.

Her secret is that after graduation she’s gonna move to New York City to attend college and be a Broadway Star and then never come back to Ohio. LAME SECRET, BERRYFACE.

Anyhow, enough chit-chat, let’s break into the Wicked theater to fulfill our lifelong dreams of breaking in to Broadway.

it's just like that guy said about being famous for 15 minutes

A benevolent black man grants Rachel & Kurt access to the theater so they can do a pretty fantastic rendition of “For Good” from the musical Wicked. The original Wicked starred, of course, April Rhodes and Rachel Berry’s biological Mom. My Mom loves Wicked. She has a “Defying Gravity” t-shirt and everything.

Santana and Brittany need to make out in the bathroom but Quinn’s hogging it, probably looking at herself in the mirror again.

santana needs to get up in there

JK! Steely Quinn’s been crying her perfect little eyeballs out, wondering why everyone besides her has love/fulfilled dreams. It could be worse, Quinn. Some of us are dating lesbian men. Well. I guess Quinn was dating a lesbian man until very recently so she can cry if she wants to.

And she wants to.

Santana says she knows how to make Quinn feel better but despite 56 tumblrs that claim otherwise, Quinn says that she’s “flattered” but “really not into that.” Mhm. That’s what they all say. Anyhow, let’s skip gayly in that direction just the same.

Santana: “I think I know what’ll make you feel better.”
Quinn: “I’m flattered Santana but I’m not that into that.”
Santana: “No, no I’m talking about the haircut.”

  1. Quinn’s plan was probably to get an alternative lifestyle haircut and lure all the NY gay ladies back to Lima to form a lesbian colony.

    Also, it looks like Santana’s been downgraded into the friend zone, rather than friends-with-benefits zone. Gotta step up your game, gurl.

  2. “Did anyone else grow up thinking Tiffany’s was a restaurant that served really good breakfast?”

    ummm YES.

    fantastic recap, riese. i especially enjoy the picture captions. maybe she knows a shortcut?

  3. “Maybe she knows a shortcut.” I don’t know why, but I laughed very hard at that. I should’ve been reading your recaps all season long because the actual show has been a bit of a disappointment.

    Also, I’m with you — why wouldn’t they just perform one of their successful past numbers? Not having the song written yet the day before? Huh? These kids are incredible for apparently never ever practicing or choreographing. I also love how Will constantly talks about songs because for regionals or whatever and THEY NEVER EVER ARE. Just stop saying it Will, we know you’re a fucking liar!

    • *being for regionals. Ah, typing fail.

      BTW, I’ve enjoyed Brittany the past few episodes. They’ve added a wisdom in her simplicity and willingness to take life at face value. I can appreciate that a lot more than thinking babies come from storks and whatever else.

  4. I thought Quinn said she was not really “not that into that.” which while a seemingly minute difference is still a distinct one from “not into that.”

    • Ah, I just checked. You are correct. So is she somewhat into that, if not THAT into that? THOUGHTS ARE HAPPENING.


          The more names, the better.

          (And yes yes yes yes please let Q rebound with a girl even if it’s Rachel)

          • That is exactly where my brain went.

            If for some reason Brittana doesn’t work out, and then Santana and Quinn are both single….Yikes. Tumblr, get ready.

            Honestly, I want:
            1)Santana to come to terms with who she is, be proud, come out and have a girlfriend. I’d love it to be Brittney, but I’m willing to see where it goes.

            2)Brittney to continue to dance. All the time. It makes me happy.

            That is all.

  5. Tina’s reaction to Santana’s latest meltdown was priceless. She looked she was trying so hard not to laugh. As all Santana stans know, when that girl feels like she has suffered even the tiniest of hardships her immediate reaction is to have an emotional breakdown and resort to violence. It’s what makes her so fun to watch.

  6. Firstly, I hated this episode. I’ve been ranting to my friends all week about how disappointing this show is, especially for the babygays out there. Seriously, WHO THE FUCK CARES about Finn and Rachel? No one! For a show that is supposed to be the gayest ever, why the fuck don’t Blaine and Kurt kiss after exchanging “I love you’s” when Finn gets to have the “Superman of kisses”? Why is Santana suddenly okay with being delegated to just a friend when there were so many good opportunities for her to make out with Brittany? (That bathroom scene was the biggest let-down ever, followed by Quinn’s coy rejection of some lady-kisses). This show has so much potential in changing social barriers with LGBT teens on TV, but no, they insult us by rubbing Finn’s fucking love triangle in our faces 80% of the time to the point where I didn’t even care that Mercedes finally has a boyfriend. Rage.

    And, of course, the usual bullshit of them writing their own songs in a day and perfecting them. The first song was so contrite and the second one sounded like a Katy Perry reject.

    Season Three – I may not indulge in you. I should just stick to these fabulous recaps and check out the Brittana scenes when (IF) they ever appear.

    So. Many. Feelings.

    • I hated it, too. I only just recently caved in to watching the show–with all the gay stuff, I couldn’t ignore it any longer– and then they end the season with this stupid episode!

  7. hahahahha gay nod.

    also i cant think of a good mashup of sam+ mercedes…

    everything ends up sounding like an ancient greek philosopher…

    sarcedes? trouty tots?

  8. I want a Santana & Rachel duet.

    And I like that Quinn’s humongous plans were stopped through a haircut. The writers really have no idea what to do with her character.

  9. first of all, Riese, your Glee recaps have been the highlight of my post-Glee internets all season, because you are hilarious and I agree with the vast majority of your opinions. Thank you for writing them and I’m sure I’ll be back to reread them intermittently the same way I do every so often with your L Words.

    second of all, on Tuesday I was totally bummed out about the ending, but now I think it’s kinda great. If the terms of entering an official relationship, as set by Brittany, are that Santana has to come out, then there’s still a lot of ground to explore on that.
    (Besides, I’ve decided that they are totes still schtupping offcamera [sex =/= dating; “Santana needs to get up in there”; they were both missing from the “Kurt wakes Rachel” sleepy girl room scene], which is a comfort.)

  10. ohana means family. family means nobody gets left behind. ESPECIALLY fingerblasters.

  11. I just have one question: how do I get my hair to look like Kurt’s did in the Tiffany’s scene?

    • I would also like to know this. I have long hair, but I would chop it off in a second if I knew I could get it to be like his. WANT.

  12. Since episode 2×15, basically the highlight of my life has been waiting for more Santana/Brittana each week, and then after that happens and the endorphin levels in my brain drop, I comfort myself by saying that you will put up a recap in a few days that will be even better than the episode itself. Please continue to be hilarious, love Santana, and do recaps next season.

    Also the use of Alice’s “some of us are dating lesbian men” comment was perfect. I guffawed.

  13. This episode was such a bad season finale. There were small parts I enjoyed, but overall it sucked. Brad Falchuk said in an interview with EW magazine that the ep they originally filmed was 20 minutes too long so they had to cut it for time. This just proves they’ve not planned anything out this whole season & had no idea WTF they were doing. If you are running a TV show, you should know how much shit you can fit into your 43 minutes, not run 20 minutes long on the SEASON FINALE and then have to cut a bunch of shit out. /rant

    My favorite scenes were:
    1. Unholy Trinity. I’m jumping on the Quintana bandwagon after that. I could totally see them in a friends-with-benefits “this one time at cheer camp” type scenario.

    2. Kurt & Rachel singing “For Good.” I love Wicked, and they did a beautiful job with that song. Although the cuts in the middle of verses bothered me a bit. Also they seem to have broken into the Gershwin through the front door which YEAH RIGHT. Any self-respecting theater nerd knows that the way to get to play around backstage at a theater is to make friends with the doorman & pretend to care about his album of photos of himself with every celebrity that comes to the show. (Not that I’ve done this or anything…)

    3. Brittana locker scene. I’m a cheeseball & Brittany’s speech about glee club being a family was making me a little misty. I don’t mind them being friend-zoned for now, I’d rather see Santana come into her own as a lesbian without it just being all about chasing after Brittany.

    Oh, P.S. – Riese, there is a Bedford St. in the Village also, which is where they were in that scene. After Rachel ran off I laughed to myself thinking about how it was going to take her at least an hour to find her way back uptown. I still get lost down there & I’ve lived in NYC for 7 years.

    • yeah it totally looked like the village and i was like huh, Bedford?? i lived on West 12th & Bleeker for a good long while, and never noticed Bedford Street, which I think is testament to how confusing that area is. I often got out of taxi cabs and volunteered to walk home because they clearly had no idea where my little bit of west 12th street began or ended

      • The only reason I know is because a woman I used to cat sit for lives off of Bedford in the Village. That scene actually kind of looked like her block.

        • HA! Glad someone else was on the Bedford train before I got there… It’s between Varick and Bleecker I believe, near Clarkson.
          Although it’s a little perplexing that they’d go from Central Park (okay) to Sardi’s (okay) then end up in the West Village… One hell of a walk, esp if they’re staying in times sq. Well played, Ava, I agree that if they were on Bedford, they’d be wandering around for two thousand years trying to figure out why West 4th intersects West 4th or West 10th or whatever.

  14. How could I forget about My Cup!? Anyone who has yet to hear the full version of My Cup needs to go download it. So much naughty innuendo, it’s fabulous. I also love that Santana/Naya (because I think it was just Naya) was cracking up during that whole scene.

    • YES. Please listen to this if you haven’t; I mean…


      “got you in the palm of my hand
      wanna put something hot in you
      so hot that you cant stand

      gonna take you to my lips
      empty out every last drop
      so thirsty for whats in you baby
      that i cant stop

      in the middle of the night, im in bed all alone…”

      I mean, if there wasn’t the second half of the song where the cup comes into play… that’s really the last thing I would think this song is about :P

  15. Riese, thank you so much for all the recaps this season! I know they take a ton of time, but they were all hilarious and much appreciated!!

  16. I Haven’t watched Glee since the Bieber episode (Bieber AND the fucked up Take Me Or Leave Me) so all I can say is this after reading the review-

    -Brittany in that white pants getup- DAYUM.
    -Kurt’s hair- epic
    -Kurt and Blaine- dawwwwwww!
    -The rest- WTF
    -Consensus- still glad I’m not watching.

  17. I can’t believe no one is commenting on the all girl show choir! It was basically the girl version of Dalton Academy! In season three, I think Santana should transfer there and it could be her Lesbian Hogwarts. She can hook up with that blonde chick that sang lead.

    • I thought the singers even danced like Blaine a bit. They were going hard and those dresses they wore were very lightweight. I thought we were gonna have a Britney Spears-getting-out-of-a-car situation.

    • Um, I was convinced that Santana had found her lesbian colony and was leaving McKinley. Perfect spinoff spot.

  18. My roommate literally asked if I was okay I was laughing so hard at this… Truly 20x better than the episode itself.

    I was expecting something worse than what they gave us with Brittana. That said, it still made my heart cold… It’s pretty obvious that what they were doing with that was trying to show us how since Santana’s confessed her love, they haven’t done anything – and so their relationship will probably never reach the “girlfriends” stage. The locker conversations… sooo hands off…. really sad. Whatever.

    I blame Heather Morris’s boyfriend.

  19. I’m SO PISSED THAT finn and rachel got to kiss twice and santana and brittany’s relationship has gone NOWHERE. come on I want some sweet lady kisses please, no more finn/rachel drama…….

    • UGH. I absolutely HATE how many Finn/Quinn or Finn/Rachel kisses there are in comparison to Brittana and Klaine kisses. UNFAIR. I mean, good god, who DOESN’T kiss after the first “I love you”? All Kurt and Blaine ever get to do is some very intimate hand holding and mushy looks across coffee shop tables. :\

      • YES. You can’t just say “I love you” and then not kiss. Does that even happen in the real world? Ridic.

  20. Okay, I know this isn’t important but it really bothered me that the writers expected us to believe that Rachel thought that Cats was still on Broadway. I mean, girlfriend def. has an encyclopedic knowledge of Broadway esoterica; and Cats closing is like Broadway 101. I feel like that was supposed to be Brittany’s line…

    Also, Kurt and Blaine need to show a little more physical affection. Like even a little cuddling would be nice. You said you loved each other, but SHOW ME HOW MUCH.

    • That bothered me too. And then QUINN knows, but not Rachel? Come on writers. It would’ve been much funnier & made much more sense if Brittany had bought them all tickets for Cats.

  21. Oh LOL “five fingers allll up in there” is my favorite caption of this recap. <3

    Pretty much I have my usual feelings re: caring about what happens to Kurt, Blaine, Brittany, and Santana….and that's about it. Heather Morris killing it with the dancing: check. Kurt having various amazing pompadours: check. Finn being a self-absorbed and annoying puppy following Rachel around: check. Me hating Schue's irrelevant plotlines: check. (Okay seriously singing his own just-released music from his solo cd? Ew product placement ick.)

    The competition episodes are usually lame so I wasn't expecting much…especially since they started doing this original song thing WHICH I DETEST. I watch glee to watch them sing other people's songs, that's like the whole damn point!

  22. Sometimes, Tuesday rolls around, and I don’t feel like watching Glee. But then I think to myself, “Hannah, you have to watch it. What if you need to gain a certain amount of foreknowledge to fully comprehend this week’s recap?”

    And, I definitely teared up when Blaine said, “I love you”. Sooo perfect.

  23. “Some of us have it worse. Some of us are dating lesbian men”=The new slogan of Rachel Berry.

  24. Mother fucking God damn mother fucking God damn mother fucker!!!

    They’re STILL not together!!!!


  25. 1. Your recaps are the highlight of my week. Seriously, 20x better than the show itself.
    2. My roommate just asked if I was “okay” b/c of death by laughing.
    3. My opinion on that last scene is: It wasn’t as bad as I was expecting, but basically confirms all our fears. The fact that they’ve been having all these conversations at their lockers… YES, folks, they are NOT fucking, and in fact they probably never will again. Brittany said, “I love you but not that way,” and Santana said, “I respect that, and I value our friendship more than anything else we have/had.” For all the professions of love there hasn’t been a scene between those two more glacial than that one, and though it wasn’t as bad as expected… ugh.
    Then again I don’t really watch Glee. Maybe they’re just really bad scriptwriters… :/

  26. I don’t usually comment on these, but I have to say I’m going to miss your recaps. They’re my way of justifying the fact that I still watch this crappy, but irresistibly gay show… Also, you’re the only re-capper who consistently references Spring Awakening! There should be an SA themed episode with Blaine and Kurt as Hanschen and Ernst.
    Sidenote: I can’t help thinking that Rachel would have known that Cats closed over a decade ago…

    • “There should be an SA themed episode with Blaine and Kurt as Hanschen and Ernst.”- Yes! This! OMG! This should totally happen!

  27. These recaps are so much better than the show itself. And I love all the True Blood references. Why don’t they do that on the show??

    Heather Morris and Naya Rivera are the only reasons I have left to watch this show. Chris Colfer is even starting to wear on me…

  28. As a menstrual cup user, my brain went somewhere very very different with “My Cup.”

    • Wow, I didn’t think that song could’ve been made any dirtier… but congrats.

  29. I think Brittana’s convo at the Lockers of Truth might actually be the only part of Glee that remotely resembles high school.

    Think about it.

    Don’t you have someone from high school where you’re like “damn, why weren’t she and I together?” And then you realize, oh right, ’cause in high school:
    Repeated Dramatic Declarations of Feelings =/= Relationship

  30. Why didn’t Brittany just stay in NY and drink gin with me? I have a variety of cups and gin, it would have been perfect.

  31. “The original Wicked starred, of course, April Rhodes and Rachel Berry’s biological Mom.” HAHAHA. Amazing.

  32. I can’t believe no one has commented on Riese’s “Rent” reference.

    Also, re: everything unrealistic: At this point, I am more or less convinced that the entire show is an elaborate dream Kurt is having because that’s basically the only way you could explain all the plot holes and inconsistencies.

    • actually everyone is dead and the show is just purgatory sort of thing where they work out unfinished business.

      …..oops, wrong show!

  33. Intern Grace: “At this point, I am more or less convinced that the entire show is an elaborate dream Kurt is having because that’s basically the only way you could explain all the plot holes and inconsistencies.”

    This … this explains EVERYTHING.

  34. Brittany’s wisdom was lessened by that reference to Artie being able to walk again. All this emphasis on him being able to walk again makes it seem like having a happy life with a disability is completely impossible.

  35. Riese: loved the recap as ever, you are a genius.

    Re the episode: I was really frustrated by the whole thing. Like everyone else seems to be, I am really sick of Finn / Rachel / Quinn, and way too much time was spent on it this ep.
    I honestly thought Naya Rivera was the only one to really shine. I love Heather Morris but I didn’t feel like her heart was in Brittany’s speech to Santana at the end, whilst Naya brings it every time. Also totally pissed that the writers basically left Brittana unresolved.

    I’ll still watch season 3, but I’ll probably hate myself for it.

  36. according to fox the weather is more important than glee

    so because tornadoes were heading for my house i didn’t get to watch this

    i wrote them a very angry letter, which was basically


    they didn’t show it on viewers voice :(

  37. I swear to God when I saw Mercedes and Sam together I jumped up and down screaming “SHE CALLED IT! SHE CALLED IT!” Then my sister cried because I got in the way of the TV and my mum told me to sit down and shut up, but still, Riese fucking called it.

  38. Riese, I doubt you’ll ever see this comment since I’m 3.5 months late to this party, but I cried laughing at this recap. I just want you to know that I appreciate you.
