UPDATE: Real busy with other stuff right now, so not much time to re-cap. So, Quickly: Last night’s show was one of the best this season. The theme of self-acceptance touched all the kids and moved ahead the plot line in unexpected ways.
It was satisfying to see Kurt gain the upper hand over Karovsky, even though the means to that end were kinda shady (Santana blackmail!). I’m also glad Karovsky’s struggle with his sexuality hasn’t been tied up in a neat little bow. Karovsky and Santana could help each other come out and be better people in the process. It was sad seeing the two of them sitting out in the auditorium while the kids celebrated themselves on stage singing “Born This Way”. Santana’s “Lebanese” t-shirt cracked me up.
Barbara Streisand! The mall flash mob was all kinds of fun. The musical numbers were great–from Finn (not) showing off his dance skills with Mike singing “I’ve Got to Be Me” to Quinn and Rachel’s poignant “I Feel Pretty/Unpretty” mashup, Blaine’s sweet goodbye via “Somewhere Only We Know”, it was all good stuff.
I teared up: Kurt saying goodbye to Blaine and the Warblers, When Emma revealed her “OCD” shirt, Kurt singing “As If We Never Said Goodbye” on his return to McKinley (CHILLS CHILLS CHILLS).
There are 4 episodes left, including the prom ep, a funeral (hearing the death is a woman, and someone we might not expect), next week’s Fleetwood Mac episode, and the final episode–the kids at Nationals. The cast is in New York right now filming the last show.
After the jump. TONS OF VIDEO. Watch!
Tonight, Glee expands to 90 minutes as New Directions gets a lesson in self-acceptance by singing Lady Gaga’s self-love anthem “Born This Way”. Plus…Kurt Hummel comes back to McKinley high and faces his nemesis Karovsky. Reportedly, there is a very pivotal face off between Kurt and & his Dad and Karovsky and his Dad in the principal’s office.And Santana blackmails somebody, changing the dynamic of the club. Hm. I’ll be back with a recap and videos later.
