wishfulclicking: man in black and white pulling back a curtain to show moving sky (glee: finn glasses)

Jessie's back for a bit. Some reason I had imagined him smarter than what he really is but it seems he's just really excellent at Show Choir and being self satisfied and fierce. Rachel and Jessie are interesting together in a way; and it was nice to see them together without all the baggage around them. Jessie interacting with everyone at the dinner was hilarious.

So over Finn/Rachel drama. Their reunion is inevitable so the obstacles of Jessie and Quinn just don't mean anything, especially when neither one of them seem interested in anyone but each other. Finn just needs to get his act together.

The slap scene between Rachel and Quinn wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, an apology came after and it seems like the two of them are building towards a moment or at least an understanding.

Seems like Artie and Brittany are completely done but still friendly. It's just time for Brittany and Santana to get together.

Kurt's humiliation at prom was horrible but I liked that he picked himself up right away. He's growing up.

At some point Karofsky will probably come out, but I do wonder if they're going to show it on the show in season three.

Mercedes and Sam were pretty awesome together too. Happy that they both were able to be there for each other and it seems like Sam is fitting in better and getting friends and that makes me happy.

PREVIEW: All the progress Quinn seems to be making and they have her telling Finn they need to quit Glee? Ugh, this is probably misdirection. Though Jessie as Show Choir assistant should be interesting.


MUSIC:

'Rolling in the Deep' was the best of the night for me; 'Dancing Queen' and 'I'm Not Going to Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance With You' was fun; 'Isn't She Lovely' was cute, I'm always a fan of Kevin McHale's voice. Rachel's song was classic Rachel ballad. 'Friday' was ridiculous.

I liked this episode a lot, and honestly don't understand the hate it is getting on the net right now. Still, I have to admit that I barely tolerate Blaine. I know he was Kurt's date and everything, but why in the world was he singing at prom other than the fact Criss has a great voice? Of all the songs, I like "I'm Not Going to Teach Your Boyfriend How to Dance With You" the least. It just didn't make a lot of sense to me, episode-wise.

Yeah, last season's pre-competition episode was fairly fluffy too--which I don't mind at all. Taking a wee break before the big finale makes sense to me.

As for Blaine's song choice, I bet it had all the Kurtofsky shippers wondering for a moment!

Hah, I didn't even think of that interpretation of that song. And I should've, because I'd been wondering earlier, when they had that scene outside the classroom. Karofsky was so raw at that point, and it looked like it got to Kurt. I wonder if they're trying to set up a triangle situation for next year.

I think I'm weirdly dissenting tonight. There were moments I loved this episode, and moments I hated it. Yes to Kurt picking himself right back up again. Major yes to Sam and Mercedes being friends.

I'm sick of the Finn/Rachel stuff too, mostly because they just need to get over the obstacles and move on.

I hate Jessie the first time around. I'm not thrilled to see him back, and I hate another villain coming in right now. It just irritates me.

I loved Karofsky in this. For one brief moment I wondered if he had somehow engineered it to be forced to dance with Kurt, but no. He's not ready, he can't handle it, and I kind of hope that doesn't resolve until season 3. It doesn't feel like it should be able to resolve in this season.

I do think Santana & Brittany should resolve this season, but it felt right for it not to just fall together tonight. Santana's getting there slowly.

"Dancing Queen" was possibly the most politically incorrect title they could've had then and yet, I cackled because it was political incorrectness laughing at itself and correctly applied in the manner of satire that Glee does. It worked.

I liked Blaine's song (because I'm too lazy to type out the title). I decided to suspend disbelief on why he was singing because it was fun, and well, I happen to like the song outside of Glee. I thought it worked well, generally, just going by the overall concept of well, being about jealousy. Least, that's what I've always assumed the song was about, and it was the music for Finn's moment of freaking out, and that worked to underline it for me.

Now here's where you can all laugh. I cackled so hard at Friday. So so so hard. I made my husband pause it, ran upstairs, grabbed my kid (who is just getting into Glee by way of watching Every Youtube Video She Can and will watch season 1 soon when I receive it), and brought her downstairs. Because we had been talking recently about how AWFUL that song is. And how terrible whassername is when performing it. And I was pretty impressed that they made the song kind of bouncy and fun if you ignored the lyrics, and made it a passable song. She and I laughed and clapped and were amused. She then stayed through Rachel's songs, because Jar of Hearts happens to be one of her favorite songs ever.

There were other things I was thinking, but I can't remember them now. It's been a long day and the brain cells have mostly checked out and gone to sleep. :(

I'm not sure I agree on Jessie being less of a villain. Every interaction he had grated on my nerves because it felt like he was being so condescending and like he was trying to set people off. But maybe that's just him being so selfish and unable to look beyond himself and I'm just used to it when Rachel does it.

Although I did crack up at "Maybe for the first, but not the fourth" when he talked about betraying Rachel for the championship. They are, in many ways, peas in a pod. Except I think Rachel needs people more than Jessie. I just can't quite seem to connect with him as a person, I guess.

Be glad you've not hear the original song Friday. When I finally caved and looked it up on Youtube, I was like "THIS is the internet sensation? What has the internet been SMOKING??" My daughter assures me that people don't actually like the song, but then that turned into a discussion on why we don't tell someone we dislike them online, even if we really are being honest, because 100k people telling you that you suck is powerful nasty stuff. Somehow we ended up feeling sorry for Beiber in the car today. But I suppose I feel sorry for anyone who is in the limelight and has to put up with the hate that comes with it. Oh and to turn this back in Glee directions, my daughter heard the Glee version of Baby and was quite shocked and now likes the song because she really liked how Chord Overstreet sounded singing it, far better than Beiber (or Bieber, I have no clue if he's IE or EI).

I think that all makes sense with what you're thinking relationship wise. I kind of hope Artie realizes he doesn't need anyone, but I also don't want to see him being the only lonely one. I want Quinn to have her strength. AGAIN. Please.

I totally missed the connection between Blaine's song and the entire Finn-Rachel-Quinn melodrama... mostly because I am so sick of that melodrama I am beginning to tune it out. Now that I do see the connection, I appreciate the song a bit more. And I appreciated "Friday" too!

As for Karofsky, well. He's a favorite. I'm really hoping for a redemption plot, no matter how many seasons it takes.

I love Karofsky. Ever since this plotline started, I have loved him, but then, I've known people with that level of self-hatred and frustration, so I feel like I get him. It's not easy to be the thing you've been taught to hate, and sometimes it IS easy to take the easy road out, like he did. He's growing and changing and THAT is incredible to see.
