The lights go out at McKinley High this week on Glee, forcing at the students to use flashlights and forcing me to wonder why they don’t just open the blinds. Inspired by the lack of electricity, Mr. Schue makes it “unplugged week,” but the only one who seems to embrace the lack of synth is Sam. The episode also takes a turn for the very serious when Ryder makes a personal confession to the glee club. Is it just me or does it feel like Glee is really hitting on hard issues this season? We also learn some important lessons about the dangers of mylar balloons.
Over in New York City, Rachel and Kurt are concerned about Santana’s lack of direction, and Sarah Jessica Parker makes a triumphant return as Kurt’s “fairy godmother.” Get my highlights and a Spotify playlist of all the songs in the episode when you read more.
First of all, shout out to American Idol’s Jessica Sanchez, who we see only a glimmer of as a member of another team competing against the New Directions at Regionals. She belts out “The Star-Spangled Banner” like a pro, and I’m really looking forward to seeing and hearing more of her.
Despite the fact that according to Kurt and Rachel, Santana is a deadbeat, she’s actually the smartest character on the show. She’s got the wittest one-liners (“I don’t think I need to be taking any advice from TV’s Blossom”), and she really has a grip on reality. I love the end of this episode when she hugs her inner child. It’s sweet and a little whimsical, just the way I like my Glee.
