I had no idea the final season premiere night would be two episodes. TWO EPISODES! I didn’t mentally, physically, or emotionally prepare myself for two shitty episodes. I wish someone would have told me! But alas I watched it, and I tweeted it. To the tweets!
The Intro: We open up the episode with a nod to A-Ha “Take On Me” and continue the drawing thing throughout the episode. We get a Blaine voice-over, which is rare, and we learned that he tried not wearing bow-ties and not gelling his hair but it was too much for him. OH THE INSANITY!!
Blaine: You were a character I really loved in season 2, and then slowly but surely (like all the characters) the writers made me start to dislike you more and more. This show once again proves that just because you’re part of a minority group that has a history of being discriminated against doesn’t mean you can’t do some discrimination of your own. As soon as Jane said she wanted to join The Warblers Blaine should have welcomed her, instead he didn’t feel the need to do the right thing until Will said something. I think what really pissed me off was towards the end of the episode where Blaine went off on Rachel because Jane decided to join the New Directions. Blaine, it’s not the serious and Rachel did nothing wrong. You’re just pissed that you didn’t get want you wanted. Shocker…
Kurt: Pining after Blaine, being Rachel’s “assistant/co-leader”. Oh Kurt, you could be doing so many more things with your life right now.
Rachel: I find it kinda funny that Rachel got slushied and it was by Becky. Talk about rough. Also let’s talk about how Rachel is now all about coaching the glee club and bringing back the glory of New Directions. I miss season 1-3 Rachel. The girl who just wanted to be on Broadway. The girl who wanted her gold star to shine. Not the girl who decided to give up her lifelong dream and then randomly decide to do television and then moved back home because that bombed in her face.
Sam: Apparently he knows that Quinn and Santana had sex together…
Jane: The diamond in the rough, the brightness to this dismal season. Jane has spunk and she isn’t afraid to get what she wants. She wanted to go to Dalton, so her family sued the school to let her in. She wanted to join The Warblers, so she tried out. When that didn’t work she was like, “Fuck this, I’ll transfer to a different school that actually has better academics, that’ll let me join their glee club.” Good for you Jane, good for you!
Roderick: Why are we calling him fat, first of all. He’s not fat, yes he’s probably slightly bigger than average but unless he’s 300lbs or over you can’t really consider him the “Fat Kid”. It’s also pretty messed up that his parents made him move his senior year of high school. Only asshole parents do that, or they HAD to move do to a job. His voice though… HIS VOICE! His voice sounds like a Barry Manilow angel =)
Gay Football Player: His little speech to Kurt was on point. Just because he’s gay doesn’t mean that’s all that he is. And just because both him and Kurt are gay doesn’t mean they’re suppose to be friends, doesn’t mean they’re suppose to connect on some kind of level.
The Twins: The writers will probably use the twins to bring comedy when Brittany isn’t there.
The Warblers: I see what you were trying to do here RM & Co. I think we all saw what you were trying to do and let me just say that it was ridiculous. The argument The Warblers were having about tradition and whether or not they should even allow Jane to try out. And then the nerve of a majority of them to say they’re straight. HA! Straight as a circle.
The Old Gang: Apparently everyone has the time to take off of work and school to just come to McKinley High for homecoming and to help out Kurt and Rachel. Poor Tina is still getting crapped on. Poor girl, can’t get a break. Also I’m not sure why Puck is always wearing his uniform. I think it’s a way for the writers to remind us that he’s in the Air Force. Now I’m no expert on the military but I did grow up and spend a majority of my life (22 years) as a military dependent, in fact my father was in the Air Force and the only time I saw him wearing his fancy uniform was for special occasions. Now I just talked to my dad and he said he would wear it when he was told to but usually that was for special occasions. So I’m not sure why Puck is wearing it all the time except to show it off. I felt that the Tea Party Patriot Club scene was unnecessary and not needed. That’s one of those scenes where Glee is trying to be funny, especially with politics, but it falls flat. The gang really didn’t serve a purpose during this episode but they will in episode three. Though if this was the real world they’d all go back to their schools and jobs and forget about their HIGH SCHOOL glee club.
*Kitty and Artie at some point broke up, not that anyone gave a crap. And Kitty is still at McKinley, but she’s only on the Cheerios. Oh and she’s still a bitch.
The Last Scene: I will admit that I liked the last closing number. To me it made sense with the story line, a nice way to blend the old kids and new kids together.
ON TO THE NEXT ONE!
