After some hits and misses, the latest episode of "Glee" was a dream come true.
Most importantly, the FABY was finally outed! I have to give major props to the writers for the scene between Will and Terri; Even if you quickly realized what he was going to stumble across while looking for his pocket square (if you weren't giggling at his desire to wear a pocket square), the emotional performances by Jessalyn Gilsig and Matthew Morrison were gasp worthy, if only for the fact that Terri has become a sympathetic character. True, she's manipulative and can't be totally forgiven for lying about the pregnancy, but it is understandable. As Emma puts it, Will is "a lot to lose."
Now, with Emma and Ken's wedding just around the corner, the big question is how Will's rocky marriage might affect his relationship with Emma. The chemistry between them is obviously there, despite whatever Emma may say, and now that Will won't be attending sectionals I wonder if he's going to pull a stunt from "The Graduate." What's even more confusing is that I don't know if I want Will to interrupt the wedding; Ken might not be the perfect guy for Emma, but I don't want to see his heart broken like that, nor do I want him to become the villain in the show (because you know he would have to retaliate if Will ruined his chance at happiness). Oh, drama. What do you think will happen?
As for the kids, Rachel's leadership role will definitely add some conflict within the club, but so far it seems to be a positive force. Without Will backing her up, though, she could be bowled over by the rest of the club. Hopefully, that won't happen, but Kurt seems to be increasingly anti-Rachel, so who knows? And while Rachel and Finn singing "Smile" was totally random and unnecessary, it did reinforce the flirtation between them (and added another song to the iTunes revenue). I wonder if that love triangle (or hexagon, if you include Puck and Santana) will come to a head soon, since Quinn seemed to be separate from her boyfriend in the episode. Still, I want to give Quinn a huge high five. She's always been a curious character because of her allegiance to the Cheerios, but now that she's taken a stand against "Ms. Sylvester" I think she will be an asset to Glee. How, exactly? I have no idea. She is still the pregnant girl, and as the final scene of this episode shows, Glee's commercial didn't help their popularity at all. But, I have hope for Quinn. She's a tough cookie, and I'm glad that she put Sue in her place.
Speaking of Sue, THANK YOU for more Jane Lynch this week, especially more silly ad-libbing in Figgin's office. The students are raising rabbits in Will's office? Fantastic. She is all the adversary this show needs, and I love her for it.
So, what did you think of the episode? Maybe it was some of the more old-school song choices, but I really enjoyed this episode and can't wait to see what happens next week.
