Glee Episodes Review
Right at the beginning of this episode Puck confesses all about who he has a big “thing” for a gives a great rendition of Van Halen’s “Hot For Teacher” featuring Brittany with a tie around her head, Puck on the electric guitar and some very interesting dance moves from Blaine and Mike. As we saw Puck put the moves on Shelby last week.
Quinn is still desperate to get Beth back and because Puck thinks he is really in love with Shelby, he tells her all about Quinn’s antics to try and prove her an unfit mother. This has the unfortunate effect of Shelby telling Quinn in no uncertain terms she will not be allowed to see Beth any more.
We also get an interesting revelation about the Sectionals where we find out that New Directions and the Troubletones will be facing off against each other. There will also be another group called the Unitards which could be very interesting. Despite the fact that they will be competiting against each other, Will and Shelby try to bring them together with a good old mash off. The two teachers perform a mash up of Lady Gaga’s “You & I” and Eddit Rabbit’s “You & I” to demonstrate what they mean.
Finn is getting really fed up of Santana’s trash talk and New Directions and Troubletones square off against each other in a game of dodgeball. This game has a rather good mash up of Blondie’s “One Way Or Another” and Pat Benator’s “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” in it. The girls decide they are going to attack Rory with the balls and he ends up with a bloody nose as a result. Mercedes tries to get Santana to get along with Finn, but her apology is bordering on mean and Finn calls her a coward for not comign out.
Sue is in the rampage with her smear campaign against Burt Hummel who is running against her for office. She has some very wild and frankly unbelievable accusations through the commercials he is running including that he has a baboon heart and he married a donkey!
Kurt steps in to try and stop her, but Sue tells him that all political campaigns have to get dirty and if he wants to win his campaign for school president will have to get dirty. Kurt refuses to listen, telling her that he will win with honor.
A the student body presidential debate Kurt vows to ban dodgeball after the earlier accident and Rory’s bloody nose. Rachel gives up on the spotlight and drops out of the race to support Kurt and help him to win the campaign. Rachel is keen to be BFF’s again with Kurt which is the major reason she dropped out of the race.
Quinn is after joining the Troubletones because she wants her baby back.
On mash up day we see New Directions perform a Hall and Oates mashup with “You Make My Dreams Come True” and “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)”, looking like they fell off the Miami Vice set in the 1980′s!
Puck and Shelby continue to get very much closer and Puck dons a fake mustaches (and looks very much like Tom Selleck!) as we see him becoming more and more paternal.
Sue’s congressional opponent, Reggie “The Sauce” Salazaar has a daughter at McKinley High who heard Finn “out” Santana. Reggie runs an ad campaign where he forces Santana out of the closer by advertising that she is a lesbian in an attempt to reveal Sue’s true family values to the voters! Obviously this could cause Santana some serious problems because she is firmly in the closet about her sexuality.
Then we see a brilliant Adele mash-up from the Troubletones performing “Rumour Has It” and “Someone Like You” with some smouldering glances between Santana and Brittany. After the performance, Santana seeks out Finn with the speed of a homing missile, yells at him for wrecking her life and gives him one hell of a slap!
Poor Santana has a major issue to face in that she’s now been outed to her parents. Will they be supportive and accepting? Will Sue’s smear campaigns backfire on her and will Kurt win his presidency?
