Great opening post - cannot wait to get this season underway.

One thing I just remembered about Burt - whatever happened to his run for Congress and being part of the US Congress? Did that just fade away randomly and never talked about again?

I fuckin' knew that Ryder/Marley/Jake triangle was suspect.

I really wanted the Catfish last season to be Jake. Unique was such a bad choice because it was easy and obvious.

That said, I'm excited for this terrible show to come back . Train wrecks are awesome!

Yikes! That was fairly sad to read. I imagine we will all need some Kleenex after we watch the episode. Maybe we should cue up some funny /happy moments to have on hand to offset the amount of sadness we will see in the episode.

I was pleasantly surprised with the episode and loved all of it! The amount of songs and the way they wove into the plot made it feel like a "musical version" of the show, if that makes sense. I really liked how the singing made sense and it was used to progress the plot.

Blaine and Kurt are engaged :3:

Loved the way they did the call back to the staircase. And two kisses without interruption from Mercedes. Seems like the producers are going to put their attention on to Klaine now that Finn is gone.


Great way to start a season, especially with Kitty's scene in the choir room. I really like what they've done with her character.

A+ episode.



EDIT: I just realized that Finn will not be at Kurt's wedding. But maybe having Cooper Anderson return will make up for it? That's so sad - because you'd think that Kurt would want to tell his brother what happened, and it did seem weird that Finn wasn't at the proposal, especially with Mercedes, Santana and Rachel showing up (good thing the last two have jobs to pay for those airline tickets!)

I'm curious how many people are going to watch next week's episode just because of what it is, not because they like Glee.


That said - I really could have done without another Prom having a disaster moment. Guess I'm just tired of that cliche and Tina not getting time to sing or gets slushied. Now they're just doing it to gently caress with her and us.

West Coast DVR screening just completed and wow -- that was really really nice and emotional. I made it okay until I got to the Hudson-Hummel clan and how real that was, well at least how real it could be for a TV show. I think it perfectly sums up how it feels for a parent to lose a child and the grief that comes with it.

Episode did have it flaws, but it really did feel like a Season 1 type of episode. Nice to see the old Rachel.

Only problem with the episode was Will stealing the jacket and letting everyone blame Puck. Just came across as creepy - I get the background and understanding why he did and it was very in character. Just removed me from the emotion of the scene because all I kept thinking was "wow, dude, don't steal a coat from a girl who is sleeping in the nurse's office and then lie about where it is."


Good job Glee. It's been awhile since we could say that. Also, having the newbies not say much was great because it was like a homecoming for the original cast.

I'm glad that Will broke down in private - Finn was his best man and best friend. It'd make sense that after everyone else cried he would too. And in a way the show started with Will seeking out Finn and it seemed like a good way to end it.

I'm getting sad thinking about it again :(




We need some happiness in this thread!

You could always try the SA Kitten Cam? A new batch of kittens are up and playing (:3:), though you could move the DVR back and forth to find them active. It's helping me a bit.

The episode was fairly flawless for me except for that jacket moment and the implications behind it.

If we had to find something to find a flaw with or complain about, I'm glad that it's only that small detail. But it's very true to Will's character to do it, so while i don't agree with the decision to have him do it, I get why he did.

With next season being the last, I'd not be opposed to a Time Jump in the story and have them fast-forward to a year, two years, five years in the future, as most of the cast is already in their mid-twenties or beyond.

Wow -- two nods in the same categories. I wonder if they'll split votes and have someone else win.

It's amazing how much of a springboard Glee has been for Darren Criss. Just a few years ago he was known as the "guy who sang in the Harry Potter musical." That's quite an accomplishment to be nominated for the people's choice awards and host the teen choice awards.

The New York plot was more interesting than the McKinley plot tonight. Love Adam Lambert as Starchild...

Jake's scooter returned tonight, which meant that it was foreshadowing of his poor choices and bad-boy attitude.



I like that Ryder is still "wtf" towards most of the Glee assignments. I appreciate him as the voice of the audience.

At this point, it seems very in character that Will would be singing in that song and I would expect nothing less from his character. Marley singing her song makes sense too.

I want more Starchild. That entire performance was aces.

Clearly it'll be their song for Nationals right? Because it'll be like Gungnam Style, only with better costumes.

This episode was lacking in Santana, Dani, and Starchild. I hope they were off on some great big fabulous adventure somewhere in the city....

The New York scenes, while I didn't like them at first, keep me watching and I don't care for the Marley/Jake relationship fallout.


Will is still terrible. Everyone tells him that blurred lines is not what he thinks it is, but he doesn't care. He wants to twerk with his students and stand outside bathrooms.


The Unique situation was handled... okay? I'm not a fan of Unique (don't like the actor - thanks Glee project) but that storyline was really well played.

I, for one, cannot wait for the future storylines wherein Rachel must explain to every guy she sleeps with why she has another guy tattooed on her! I hope one such explanation is a stammered, "I just really like Huckleberry Finn, okay?!"

That was the other thing I was thinking off --it's going to be incredibly awkward to explain "Well, my ex-fiance died (in unexplained way) and this is how I remember him"... Rachel should just stay celibate at this point and embrace her one true love: theater.

I was sort of hoping that Blaine would ride out the NYU / Columbia / Anything But NYADA college avenue longer than three minutes. I liked that he wanted to do something else other than sing, but that was handwaved away immediately.

Also, Blaine's plaid jacket is terrible. But I love how the guy in the blue hoodie just gives no gently caress about two teenagers randomly singing on the bus.

I'm all for a time jump at this point -- let the characters age about five years and we'll pick up the plotline in New York when they're in their early to mid twenties.

This is where the show should have gone a year and a half ago.... it is better with the smaller, core group of the cast.

I would not be surprised if Funny Girl flops and Rachel is left to deal with her mistakes.

That said -- there was no need to have a Very Special Episode with Kurt getting bashed. This episode had some weird juxtapositions. I was really put off by the bashing (done so many times in other shows that it almost seems cliche at this point) and then there was the will they or won't they will Sam and Mercedes.

Maybe next week's episode will be better? Last week's episode was really good! I like that we're now sometime in January/Feb of 2014! YAY time jump.

Overall? Yawn of an episode.

I will say that it was a great episode for background moments, especially in the loft and in the gay bar.


I did quite enjoy the background faces in the scene where Rachel yells at Sue. Blaine comes out of the bathroom and is like "wtf, what is going on?" trying to piece the scene together.


I'm trying to figure out where they're going to go from here because this episode was Rachel making all of her dreams come true and could have worked as another season/series finale, like when the original group graduated.

Sam has really grown on me during this season and I'm happy they brought him back to utilize him properly. Everything he did tonight was super cute.

Good. I'd rather have 1, 5, or 13 well-produced episodes (by Glee standards) than suffer through 22 episodes in varying degrees of filler and decent episodes just to make the cut.

I'm not sure where they can even go with this. So we're moving to Los Angeles with Rachel being a BIG TIME tv star and not having any consequences of her decisions. Kurt and Blaine are probably going to get married.


What about Sam? His arc this season was the most interesting that I hope he comes back :(
