Not one, but TWO weddings on Glee this week! And a Carol Burnett sighting! So many great things I’m just going to get right to it:
Favorite Moments of Furt
*Best Song of the Night: Marry You — The Youtube Wedding “Forever” video has been parodied on TV before (oh hi, The Office) but this was a REALLY great take on it. Everyone was all couple-y and adorable! And honestly, no one was cuter than Burt and Carol!
*Carol Burnett was hilarious as Sue’s Nazi Hunter mom. “Good news, Sue: We finally caught the last Nazi!” bahaha. Also, it was interesting as always to learn about Sue’s crazy past and see why she’s such a bully — she was basically abandoned with a mentally disabled sister, and when her mom was around she was a huge jerk. I like how the show gives us these moments of understanding, but doesn’t use them to soften the character — Sue is the same old Sue, we just understand her better. I also am just a huge fan of Carol Burnett, so this was a really fun cameo.
*Speaking of Sue’s wedding to herself — what a great funny/kinda sad moment. Also, that dress! A track suit dress, everyone. Amazing on so many levels.
* Burt and Carol’s wedding was so great too — it kinda seemed to be way more about their kids than them, but I guess that’s sorta understandable when you have teenagers and are getting married for a second time? It was sweet, nonetheless. I love that they bombarded Finn and Kurt at school to tell them, and that Kurt immediately commandeered the planning.
* Sam & Quinn are incredibly adorable…that said I would freak out like Quinn did, too, if Sam got down on one knee and tried to give her a promise ring when they weren’t even officially dating. Yikes. It’s not like she wants to be “that girl who’s practically married” immediately following her year as the pregnant cheerleader. It was cute that she broke into his locker to get the ring at the end though.
*Kurt. SO much Kurt stuff going on this episode. Again, I love Mike O’Malley to death — I literally gasped when he found out from Finn about Karofsky and ran into the hallways and shoved Karofksy into the wall. Karofsky seriously freaks me out whenever he gets in Kurt’s face — that moment where he stole the wedding topper from Kurt was really disturbing. This is such a well-executed storyline (even if it has made Glee a little overly-Kurt-centric lately)
*Even better was that this week, the Glee kids FINALLY come to Kurt’s defense — first the girls (thanks to Rachel) gather together to figure out how to be the most effective. They decide that a little muscle never hurt (maybe not the best plan…) but get all of the guys to help out — except for Finn who starts out the episode being kind of a scared little jerk. And Puck, because he can’t risk getting sent back to Juvey.
*Somewhat surprisingly, Kurt’s bullying brought out the defensive from (Principal) Sue. She met with Kurt and his parents multiple times, and even offered to start calling Kurt “Porcelain” after he balked at “Lady” as a nickname. Finally, she stepped down from her role as Principal so that she could keep a better eye on the hallways, since expelling Karofsky didn’t work (I felt SO bad for his dad, by the way) and he’ll be back to terrorizing McKinley soon.
*That led to the biggest shock of the episode, in that Kurt’s parents are using their honeymoon money so he can defect to Dalton Academy with Blaine. It’ll be interesting to see where that leads — he can’t possibly stay to compete against the New Directions, can he?
*And, the Brittany quip of the week (To Tina) “When you guys fooled around, did he ever just lie there?” So bad…but so funny.
Next week (*edit…last night. Sorry!) Glee is going to SECTIONALS!
