Rachel is unfortunately painting Finn’s name over her and Kurt’s beautiful exposed brick walls when Brody shows up. He tries to kiss Rachel who turns him down because of the still missing Finn, which leads me to ask: who actually misses Finn? Rachel’s NYADA dance woes are also solved for the time being. In a scene filled with odd sexual tension, Cassandra explains that she’s tough on her students so they’ll be ready in the real world. She still dislikes Rachel though, so I’m sure we’ll get plenty more from them in the coming weeks.
Jake approaches Marley in the hallway and tells her that he’s joined glee club. They start acting cutesy until Kitty shows up and says she’s his girlfriend. Huh? Where did that come from? And who is Kitty anyway? After two episodes we still have gotten any real information about her character. There are also a lot of close-ups in this scene and episode in general. Did anyone else notice that?
Marley sings “Everytime” to almost-boyfriend Jake who she’s known a couple of weeks. For the second week in a row, Glee ends with a Marley song cut with glimpses of the other plot lines. During it, Brittany’s lying on her bed missing Santana while Brody’s creeping on Rachel in her dance class. In the final moments, Rachel paints over her Finn wall in the apartment.
There was nothing wrong with this episode, but the whole thing was lackluster. On paper, wall-to-wall music numbers – and high energy ones at that – should have been fun, but this one was just meh for me. There was also no Sugar, and I don’t understand how no one sang “Circus.” The only time I actually laughed out loud all night was during the promo. What did you think? Let us know in the comments!
