See? She does matter. Right?
If Blaine went back to The Warblers, it would be really fitting if in response to Kurt trying to convince everyone how great Blaine is The New Directions sing “Not One Of Us”. Think about it, the whole episode could be Blaine’s questionable behavior (i.e. hanging out with Sebastian, someone finding out that The Warblers know the ND set list). Then at the end, ND sings the song and when it gets to the part that goes “Someone once lied to us, now we’re not so blind” they could show Jesse St. James.
This Whitney Houston episode bothers me because they are not doing it to tribute someone. They are doing it for ratings.
Amber Riley’s performance of “I Will Always Love You” is one of the best solo performances on Glee because Amber can sing a Whitney Houston song, the song itself fit well within the context of the plot (something Glee has an issue with at times), and the performance officially aired three days after Whitney Houston’s death and it was her most famous song. People loved it not because it was Glee but because Amber did an amazing job.
Everything was in place for this performance. This was Amber’s (and also Mercedes’) chance to do it big for once, to be the center of attention.
This Whitney Houston episode has to be difficult for Amber to film because not everyone can sing Whitney. Also, there is no guarantee that she will have a solo again. Mercedes’ character does not get the chance to really sing so Amber may just be background for an episode that has her written all over it. However, Amber should feel proud to know that she did it first and she was great.
New Directions had to win or there wouldn’t have been a goal for the rest of the season. I wouldn’t be surprised if they won Regionals and Nationals.
The reason Santana was outed was because the wrong person heard the wrong thing. How many times have big secrets been said in the halls of McKinley?
If the writers wanted a stronger, unchangeable Santana this season, they would have had her laugh at Finn’s words. “Really, dough boy? You’re going to try the gay card on me?” But they did not write her that way and decided to let the audience see her hurt.
Santana/Brittany has been canon since season 1. People let it go but everyone knew about it in a way. It was Brittany and Santana, and people let them be.
Tonight’s episode had Santana hear the truth. Her fear is that Brittany does not love her as much as she loves Brittany. They are close but what Santana wants is not what Brittany wants.
I find it interesting that (correct me if I am wrong) Glee has not shown Santana try to be with someone else, another female. A good friend of mine said, “In starting a lesbian relationship, it is not whether or not she is gay; but if she wants to be your friend.” Santana is beautiful enough that she attracts people. Santana is also very ugly on the inside: quick to fight, eager to bully. The only person that accepts that is Brittany and Santana knows that. As the school year trudges on, she has to begin to see that is cannot be Brittana all the time.
- Kurt and Blaine’s relationship is a bit toxic
-Oh Santana, you are just so deliciously evil with a hint of misunderstood-ness
-Brittany does not get enough credit. There is something there.
-Quinn is more of an adult than I initially gave her credit for
-Lauren come back
-Mercedes’ boyfriend has the potential to become a bad situation
That is all I can think of right now. I am interested to see what happens as the season continues.
