In one of her odd, yet deep pieces of advice (and there have been quite a few), Ms. Pillsbury compares the loss of an icon coinciding with the ending of high school, to the disappearance of one’s childhood. This prompts Mr. Schuester’s Glee club to do a tribute to the late Whitney Houston and to connect her songs to their final days at McKinley High. It was a nice gesture, but I felt the diva’s songs really only reflected the club’s sex life, unless I interpreted it wrong!
We finally heard more about the Schuester/Pillsbury’s wedding (geez I feel like they’ve been engaged for ages), while Kurt and Blaine’s relationship is put to the test, when a fellow NYC wannabe who happens to be an overly rambunctious and a cheesy texter enters Kurt’s life. I was surprised the heat between Rachel and Santana simmered down, but the temperature keeps rising for Quinn and the dreads boy… sorry Jesus. Is there a time when this girl isn’t causing orgasms?
If you’re asking “How Will I Know” the five things Melissa learned on last night’s episode “Dance With Somebody,” take a look below.
1) Mr. Schuester is so eager to move up the date of his wedding to Ms. Pillsbury, he hires the one and only wedding planner available, Mr. Lavender. But his actions backfire and Schuester resorts to a campground venue instead, before coming to his senses and realizing the Glee kids will make time for the wedding, no matter when it is. Geez Will, have you forgotten how OCD your fiancé is to dirt… I don’t think a campground will make it any better.
2) The chemistry between Quinn and Joe a.k.a “Mr. Chastity” increases with each round of physiotherapy. Is stretching a person’s leg the newest way to get turned on? Not sure if they want to become a couple yet, but one thing is definite… they’d both rather not lose the one thing they care about most — their virginity. But how many times must Quinn be reminded she’s already lost that package a while ago!
3) Kurt and Blaine battle their biggest fight yet, when this Chandler kid becomes too flirtatious with Porcelain (I had to use that name sooner or later!) With Kurt’s NYADA audition quickly approaching, Blaine decides to distance himself in order to get used to being alone in Lima the next year. Both even tapped into classic Whitney “heartbreak” to demonstrate their pain. I think Blaine was overreacting, because we all know Kurt is too kind to ditch him — I mean he worked so hard to get him in the first place.
4) Rachel and Santana really can work together and become close friends, (I knew this day would come!). After performing “So Emotional,” the two realize how compatible they are. Rachel even gives a photo of herself to Santana, to hang in her locker. Is that really necessary? It’s a good change, from the constant reminder of how “in love” Santana and Brittany are, but I don’t think they’re in BFF mode just yet.
5) Family is key. After we hear Kurt’s boyfriend and father spill their emotions about his forthcoming move to NYC, the Glee kids meet up in the auditorium (to Schuester’s surprise) even when practice is cancelled. Family always stick together. Even with change and the many speed bumps along the road, the ending of high school is truly not an end, but a new beginning for an entire family. I think a single tear just rolled down my cheek.
