When a High School Spanish teacher, Will Schuester, becomes the director of the school’s failing Glee club, New Directions, he hopes to be able to rejuvenate it. The club competes in the choir competition circuit. It’s been called “a High School Musical for adults”, the series follows the club and its mixture of oddball members as they try and restore it to its former glory. It is a musical comedy in which the eager and ambitious students not only compete to win the Nationals, but also have to deal with the tough and cruel realities of their school, McKinley High. At the same time, Will is trying to rejuvenate his failing love life whilst preventing the school’s cheer leading coach Sue Sylvester from sabotaging the choir.
A high-strung, demanding tween requests that the members of New Directions perform at his bar mitzvah, and the glee club must band together for its first public performance. Meanwhile, Spencer pushes Roderick to lose weight.
Will takes desperate measures to teach the bullies of Vocal Adrenaline about tolerance. Meanwhile, New Directions rallies to help Rachel transition into her new life when she finds out her childhood home has been sold.
After Rachel’s humiliating failure as TV actress, she comes home to Lima to figure out what she wants to do next. Upon discovering that Sue has banished the arts at McKinley, Rachel takes it upon herself to reinstate and lead the Glee Club. Meanwhile, Blaine, no longer in a relationship with Kurt, has moved home to coach the Warblers while Will is coaching rival Vocal Adrenaline, and Sam is the assistant coach for the McKinley football team.
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.
