GLEE Recap: “Prom Queen”

I get nervous making such bold statements after just one viewing, but I’m going to do it – tonight’s episode of GLEE might be my favorite episode ever! (I of course reserve the right to change my mind after you all remind me of the numerous other times I’ve made the same exact statement.) At the very least I feel confident in saying that it broke into my top five list. As up and down I’ve been with GLEE this season, I think that’s saying a lot.

GLEE often strays far from the realities of the true high school experience, but tonight it got more right than wrong.

Go to any prom and check out the girls bathroom. I guarantee you’ll find plenty of drama and tears. (On second thought, please don’t crash any high school proms or girls bathrooms for that matter.
