Just because you call it "Glee" doesn't mean it's happy.  
This week's Glee was kind of a festival of SADNESS.

OH MERCEDES. OH QUINN. OH FINN'S MOM. OH KURT. There was a lot of heartstring action and Burt Bacharach, who does not play God in this episode (or show up in person, actually). (Burt is God according to what is possibly the most cracked-out episode of The X-Files. Believe me, there's some tough competish for that honor.)

Finn's Mom / Kurt's Dad is so insanely obvious and it's awesome. I love it. They probably watch reruns on TV-Land together and she has a ridiculous laugh and he finds it adorable. I love Finn's Mom in general, though, ever since she awesomely awesomed all over the homeless-teen-girlfriend situation. Yes. YES to this pairing. Glee, do not break these two up ever.

However, Sue was oddly... I don't know. Sedate? Starving teenage girls isn't really on the level of evil machinations that I've come to expect from her. Is she *gasp* softening up!? And Santana didn't seduce a single person. In fact, I think she planned that little self-esteem-fest in the auditorium with Mercedes and Quinn (Santana and Brit were totally in on it). And Quinn is the force for good in this episode? What the heck is going on here!?

And Quinn. I love Quinn. I love that Quinn totally has depth, and she's a ridiculous bitch most of the time, but she's not stupid. But here... I don't know! She's suddenly being really, really kind, and really, really mature, and talking about her baby like it's a person she cares about instead of a venereal disease. There's no way she learned all this living at Puck's (though perhaps she learned it from FINN'S MOM before she left the House of Hot Tub Lies Revealed). Let's pretend she's been taken into some really nice halfway house for pregnant teens where they give them classes on nutrition and self-esteem and set them up with nice open adoption agencies with counselors (who are more effective than Emma). Team Quinn!

On that note, can we have Quinn eventually be the one to confront Jesse St. James about scamming Rachel? That would be awesome.

And I love that Will misses Terri. Of course he does! They've been together since puberty and she wasn't always batshit crazy. Poor Schuesters. Will really should get another place if he wants to make a fresh start, and if he wants Terri to not have a key.

As far as music... well, the music had pretty much nothing to do with anyone, and there were no group numbers (the Cheerios did as much backup singing as New Directions did), but damn can that April Rhodes belt out a tune.

Oh, poor Kurt. I kind of love him when he's being a twerp. High school kids are fundamentally obnoxious, and I enjoy it when the show lets them be that way... for a while. ;)

I just read a thing saying Santana and Britney just were promoted! :) Or at least Santana was, and Brittany probably? idk, and who knows if someone on LJ just made it up, but WIN.

I cannot believe you did not mention Kristen Chenoweth. She, and not Burt Bacharach, is God.

I did! I just can't spell Chenoweth. :)

I think my favorite moment in the episode was when Brittany and Santana shared a little look and pinky-lock, then laid their heads against each other while Kurt was singing. I love that, aside from being awesome and a total riot to watch, they're really sweet, too.

But, awww, Kurt's dad (who I adore anyway) and Finn's Mom was really great, too.

Burt Reynolds. Burt Bacharach is a singer whose songs make my ears bleed.

That being said, LOVED the ep. Lots of Kurt is always a good thing, and love his sweet voice. His dad and Finn's mom makes PERFECT sense, and they have more chemistry than Finn has with anyone. Also, Brittana pinky linking and head resting on shoulder just melted me. I ship them, and now that the auction is over, I can start writing fic for them. Yes. Yes indeed.

I haven't a clue! It was probably in a comment on your journal or something? I actually don't remember anything about this, so could it have been someone else?

I mean, at the time, I was baked out of my head on fever, so it's just as likely that it was me and I don't remember it. :)
