In tonight’s episode the kids pay homage to Fleetwood Mac, by singing songs from their album Rumours. The ep also marked the return of April Rhodes (Kristin Chenoweth). As they say, here’s what you missed on….Glee!
Okay, all I gotta say is they need to incorporate Brittany’s internet show, ‘Fondue For Two’, in every single episode. Heather Morris’ comedic timing is amazeballs as usual. Brittany’s guests were Mercedes and Tina, two of McKinley’s biggest gossipers. Brittany started off the gossip fest by saying that she heard that Santana plays for the other team, much to Mercedes’ and Tina’s shock.
Sue has decided to resurrect the school newspaper, which has been dormant for a few years, and she uses ‘The Muckracker’ to her advantage. It’s her way of causing friction between the Glee Club and ultimately wanting Will out of McKinley all together (hence April’s return). Sue tells her staff (which include Brittany and Josh) to go with the motto, ‘If we heard it, it’s probably true, or something.’ Before you know it, hot off the presses and thanks to some blind items, Santana is outed and Quinn is supposedly cheating on Finn with Sam at a hotel.
April shows up in Will’s office, tells him she failed on Broadway and needs his help with her new one woman show. They get together for a liquid dinner (wine) and Will explains how crazy it’s been with the kids fighting, the rumors, blah blah blah, thus Will deciding the lesson for the week should be about rumors. I mean ‘Rumours’. Will and April pair up for ‘Dreams’… As I do with all of their duets, loved it! Front page news reveals Will leaving the kids and McKinley to make his mark on Broadway, he once again tells the kids hello…rumor… Will and April rehearse a scene/number from her upcoming one woman Broadway show, where she tells him to come with her, but he claims he can’t. He wants to see these kids at Nationals. Which of course is in… New York. Emma is witness to their conversation and urges Will to pursue his dream. Oh, huge breakthrough for Emma. Looks like the meds are working a bit…she was no longer cleaning her grapes with gloves, but rather splashed some water on them for about half an hour. LMAO!
Poor Artie, he senses that there’s something going on and asks Brittany what the deal is between her and Santana. Brittany tells him that what she and Santana have is not cheating. Artie tells her that Santana is just manipulating her and she’s stupid for believing her. Ugh. Brittany breaks down and runs right into the arms of Santana. Artie breaks out in his rendition of Never Going Back Again. Perfect. Also loved Puck, Sam and Finn following him with their guitars.
Santana sings ‘Songbird’ to Brittany, revealing that she truly does love her, and Brittany wants her to appear on ‘Fondue for Two’ to come out. Santana agrees, but bails out an hour before the show. Brittany is left to interview her cat, Lord Tubbington. Don’t you think Naya Rivera’s vocals get better and better every week?
Meanwhile, Finchel are on a stakeout at the hotel to find out what’s going on with Sam and Quinn, only to be shocked to see Kurt walk out of the hotel room and hug Sam. Stakeout number two finds Quinn at the hotel with Sam. This of course leaves Finn fuming and his and Quinn’s duet of ‘I Don’t Want to Know’ was, well, a little dicey. Things get heated between Rachel and Quinn, with Quinn storming off after telling Finn that if he wants to be with her, he will NOT sing with Rachel.
Rachel puts her own spin on ‘Go On Your Way’ with Finn on the drums (take that, Quinn). This was my favorite song of the night. Please writers, we want Finchel back. That is all.
We find the real truth about what’s been going on with Sam — his father lost his job, they lost their house and that is why they are in a hotel or I guess I should say motel. Kurt and Quinn found out the truth and were there to help him out. We find out that Sam hocked his guitar, to have it later returned, as the whole Glee Club chipped in to buy it back. Sam breaks down, crying. Awwww. Those kids…always helping each other out…
Show’s almost over, you know what that means – It’s group performance time, with the kids singing ‘Don’t Stop’…and I’m on the fence on this one — just okay in my book.
What did you guys think of tonight’s show? Next week, it’s the much talked about Prom episode!
