Glee Review: "Born This Way"

Five stars for Glee's "Born This Way" episode and only because I'm not allowed to give it more. After reading a lot of criticism following last week's episode I have to believe that those left wanting had their prayers answered this week. Spontaneous songs were back! I don't care if you are a Jackie or Marilyn, Peggy or Joan, Rachel and Quinn's I Feel Pretty/Unpretty mash-up was amazing. The choice of songs was made even more spectacular when we later learned about Quinn's past life as Lucy Caboosey. While I could have done without the creepy child pageant scene, Lauren played a necessary evil this week as she was instrumental in exposing Quinn's past. Great Carrie reference from Quinn by the way, when she mused about Lauren being soaked in pigs blood in front of the entire school. 

Speaking of potential humiliation before an entire student body, Kurt's return on the steps of McKinley was anything but. The Warblers soared as they sang farewell to their friend with their rendition of Keane's "Somewhere Only We Know." I know, I know, I couldn't believe no one clapped either.
