|Maybe the tribute episode could also be the sectionals episode. If so, I think the Beatles should be honored, their songs are more glee-clubby material.|
I don't think sectionals should be the tribute episode, that way we could include more songs by the tributed artist.
And I agree with you about the Beattles, I don't see the point in honoring Michael Jackson when his biggest hit was already performed on the show. It would be like honoring Beyonce when a lot of her greatest songs were already performed on the past seasons...
ok, I didn´t want to do the Beatles episode because I didn't know anything about them or their music, but we needed episode #7 to continue with the rest of the season. So I started investigating and listening to some of their music and I just started writting it.
Here's a preview...
Episode 3x07 Untitled Beatles Episode (any ideas for the title?)
Sue is actually succeeding with her plans on destroying the Glee club.Turning Rachel and Finn against each other was just the beginning, and in this episode we're gonna see A LOT of fighting... But Will can't let the club tear appart. He tells the kids how the Beatles were a great band, but fighting tore them apart. They're not going to let that happen to them, so he tells them they all have to solve their problems using Beatles songs during the week.
Episode 3x07 Untitled Beatles Episode
Mercedes is walking next to Sam on the school Hallway. She's telling him about her thanksgiving Dinner, but suddenly she got a glimpse at something that made her think. She sees how Puck, one of the coolest, hottest guys in school is holding Lauren's hand, and putting her arms around her and kissing her. How can someone like Puck be as comfortable as that around someone like Lauren? And she realizes, Sam is never that comfortable. Sam leaves with a kiss on her cheak. Sue sees her and immediatly knows what she's thinking. "Even I've noticed that" says Sue from behind. "Coach Silvester, is he ashamed of me?", "Well, probably... he IS a hottie, and probably has only dated girls that look like those models from the United Colors of Beneton catalog" "But I remember when Puck and I dated, he seemed so sure being by my side, just like he looks with Lauren, why can't Sam feel like that?" "Well, maybe he isn't the one you should be with, you gotta find out"
Karofsky is at the locker room alone, when Kurt comes in and comfronts him about how he's been treating him just for not feeling the way he feels. Karofsky says he wasactually feeling ready to come out, and he wanted to do it with Kurt by his side, but he disapointed him. Kurt answers upsetsaying that's not his fault and that he should be able to come out whenever he feels ready.
Santana is still mad at Brittany for acusing her of being a bad friend for spending more time with Ivy, so she comes to Brittany and tells her that if she wants to be with her all she has to do is dump Artie once and for all, simple as that. Brittany is offended and can't believe she told her that. Shetells hershe can spend as much time as she wants with Ivy, but right now she loves Artie and she's not dumping him.
Finn goes to talk to Rachel.
R: Look at that, here comes the groom...
F: Very funny. I heard you spent your thanksgiving at Matt's, don't you think it's going a little to fast?
R: Well that's weird coming from someone who recently almost got married to a girl he just met.
F: Rachel, you don't need to be with Matt to make me jealous...
R: That's what you think I'm doing with him? Well FYI I spent a lovely thanksgiving while you were at some casino getting drunk! I think you're the one who needs advice on who you are going to date! (Rachel leaves angry)
I'ts lunch time and Mercedes comes to Sam who's sitting at the cafeteria, and just pops the question:
M: Are you ashamed of me?
M: Are you ashamed of me? I mean, why do you never hold my hand in public, or kiss me, or act as if you were my boyfriend? Cause as far as I'm concerned that's what you are!
S: Mercedes, that's ridiculous, I'm not ashamed of you!
M: Well then start acting like it!
Mercedes leaves a very confused Sam. Puck noticed the discussion and goes talk to her. He tells her that maybe it's hard for Sam because she's dated hotter girls before, but to give him time. Mercedes starts crying and tells Puck that all she wants is for him to make her feel pretty, like Puck used to do when they were dating. Puck really feels Mercedes needs to feel pretty so he gives her a kiss, Sam sees them and goes crazy.
S: What the hell?
P: It meant nothing!
S: Well, you can't go kissing somebody else's grilfriend!
P: Maybe I wouldn't have to if her boyfriend did every once in a while!
Puck leaves angry and Sam is left thinking about how maybe he actually hasn't shown confidence being around Mercedes.
Later they're all in glee club practice and you can just feel the tention in the whole classroom. Will says Rachel and Finn are going to do the lead vocals on senctionals. They both immeadiatly object. Will sugests Artie does it with Rachel then, to wich Santana reacts making a face. "What was that?" says Brittany. "What?" asks Santana. "That face you just did, I know we've been having trouble but leave Artie out of it!".
W: Enough! Guys, What's with all this fighting? Is anybody else mad at someone?
Sam: That bastard kissed my girlfriend...
Mercedes: It meant nothing!
Sam: Why would you let him kiss you?, you are...
W: Everybody, Shut up! Listen people you've gotta stop fighting! We are getting closer to sectionals! We can't let your trouble into this club or were goinna end up tearing apart like....
Kurt: The beattles
Kurt: The beattles... The greatst band in history and their differences tore them apart. I would actually like to sing a song by this band that talks about difficult times just like the one our club is going through right now. Kurt stands in front of the club and sings "Let it be"
W: That was great Kurt, and it ocurred to me: you will all solve your troubles by the end of this week using beatles songs.
Later Quinn calls all the girls to a meeting, and she tells them that since the club needs union between it's members they should perform all together. Tina sugests singing "Money Can't buy me love" and of course Rachel asumes she'll be the leading voice, but Tina says she would like to do it along with Mercedes. The other girls don't see anything wrong with that, only Rachel does, but she keeps it to herself. Later in club practice, they all start singing a Jazzy version of "Money can't buy me love". Will complements the girls on their performance and tells them they will all be doing a number in front of the whole school.
Santana later meets with Ivy at the library and tells her that she's been thinking she should join the glee club since she has a great voice. Ivy can't help laughing.
S: What's the problem?
I: I don't know... Glee club? it's kind of lame...
S: Well I understand you think that when you see people like Rachel and Kurt in the club, but we are the people that make it cool.
I: I don't know, I still think it's lame... I'll think about it though
Santana doesn't know how to answer to that. It's the first time she's ever felt lame.
Sue is in her office with Alice and she tells her she's been doing a great job the glee club is finally colapsing just like the Betles. Alice tells Sue she can't keep doing that, someone might get hurt. Sue notices how Alice is actually falling for Finn, and tells her she will ruin everything they've done so far. "I'm sorry, I just don't want to be a part of your stupid plans. I quit!" she says.
It's time to do the group performance, so they're all at the gym, while fightingkeeps going among all of themon backstage.
Rachel felt left out when they didn't let her lead in the "Money can't buy me love" performance and she's not leading in this one either. She asks Santana (who's supposed to lead with Sam) if she would let her lead, but she doesn't. They all come out to perform "Help" and Rachel tries to leave Santana out, as they both start fighting over the female lead during the performance, wich for the audience is totally obvious. The song finishes and Santana can't help being angry atRachel.
Santana confronts Rachel. She tells her she can't do what she just did, specially in front of an audience. And that she's not always gonna get the lead. Rachel apologizes and tells Santana performing is like a drug to her. Since she's fighting a lot with Finn she needed something to feel better. Santana tells her to keep that off the glee club, and leaves angry.
Artie tells all the Guys they should do a number together just like the girls did. But he thinks Sam and Puck should lead. They're both against the idea, but decide to work on it.
They're both at the auditorium alone to practice the number but they can't help bringing out the subject.
S: Why did you kiss Mercedes?
P: I just felt like she needed a kiss. Dude, you need to make her feel pretty, she doesn't feel you're comfortable around her!
S: I guess I don't... But why don't I? I really REALLY like her...
P: Well, you need to prove her that, maybe you're just insecure about yourself.
Later in the club practice the guys perform "Got to get you into my life" with Puck and Sam leading and the rest of them singing in the back.
The rest of 3x07 comes next
After the performance they all leave the classroom and Will asks Rachel and Finn to stay, so he can talk to them.
W: Guys I wanted to talk to you about how you've been handling your breakup...
R: I think at least one of us is doing pretty good.
W: No you're not, you're clearly fighting a lot, you both have looked for someone to retaliate, and the whole club will sooner or later have to pay for it.
F: Mr. Shue this is ridiculous, Rachel and I will leave this out of the club.
W: Guys, you two used to have great chemestry together. I'm not asking you to get back together, just to work it out. I'm sorry but you guys are temporarily suspended from the glee club. You may not sing on school property till you show me you can work together.
R: But Mr. Shue! That's totally unfair!
F: And unnecessary!
W: I think it's for the best. Give it a try, you might do something amazing.
Ivy asks Santana how things are with Brittany, but she tells her things are not good. Ivy says if she really cares for that friendship, she should go talk to her, apologize for anything she told her and forgive her if she has to.
Sam comes to Mercedes and tries to apologize. He tells her she's right and he will prove to be a better boyfriend if she lets him. Mercedes tells him she will need him to show her how much he cares.
Will also tries to apologize, to Emma. He says he was a jerk for what he told her the other day, when he was drunk. Emma says he really hurt her, she's been thinking about it and she feels they should break up. Will tells her he's given up his drinking problem, he's now going to rehab. Emma says that may not be enough and leaves heartbroken. Santana sees the end of that conversation and asks Will:
S: Mr. Shue, is everything alright?
W: I don't know. I think I really messed up this time. Nothing seems to be working in my life.
S: I know exactly how you feel: Tired. Tired of trying to much, tired of waiting, tired of pretending things are ok.
W: Sounds like things haven't been working out pretty good for you either, huh?
S: I guess things will get better. When you least expect it, every problem you have will solve by itself.
W: You're absolutly right. Will starts singing to Santana "Here Comes the sun" and Santana joins him in the middle of the song.
Sam comes to Artie and says he needs to win Mercedes' affection. Artie tells him he should do a rooftop concert in front of the whole school just like the Beatles did.
Mercedes is talking to Tina and Mike, they're all in the outside of the school and suddenly they all hear music coming from somewhere. They suddenly realize It's Sam singing with the guys of the glee club playing as his band on the rooftop of the school. The song is "Eight Days a Week". Finally he comes down to where she is and kisses her.
Alice comes to Finn and tells him she's sorry for the whole marriage misunderstanding. She tells him she's willing to do anything to make it up to him. Finn tells her he really needs some time by himself. Alice is kind of heartbroken but she understands and decides to leave Finn alone for a while.
Karofsky is sitting by himself on the football field and Kurt comes from behind. He tells Karofsky he can count on himwether he wants to come out or not. and Karofsky apologizes for not treating him well.
Later, Rachel is hanging out with Matt. After some conversation, she tells her how Mr. Shue told her to solve her issues with Finn. Matt tells her Mr. Shue is right. They really need to work things out between them. All the fighting is not good for anyone. Rachel knows he's right, and decides to talk to Finn about it.
Santana decides to talk to Brittany and work things out between them. They hug eachother after she apologizes, and Santana takes Brittany to meet Ivy kind of showing her she can be friends of them both.
Rachel talks to Finn and apologizes for everything. Finn does too and they agree they need to work things out. Rachel makes clear they're not getting back together for now. Finn understands. They both perform "We can work it out" by themselves and end up performing it in front of the club. They end their performance looking at eachother with satisfaction. Mr. Shue tells them that's what he was expecting from them and he's very proud.
Sue is angry at Alice for screwing up her precious plans and tells her she no longer belongs to the squad. Alice doesn't really care.
Will is checking some exams in a classroom and Emma comes in. She tells him some shoking news. She applied for scolarship in psycology in Mississipi and she got it. Shue tells her she can't go. If this is for what he told her, he's really sorry and she doesn't have to do it. Emma says that's something she really wants to do.
Emma leaves the classroom and Will leaves and cries by himself inside the gym. Suddenly he hears music and Artie comes in singing "Hey Jude" and everyone else starts joining. Now they've really shown there are no more problems between them. Will thanks them all after the song finishes, and tells them how proud he is.
Finally they all perform a speed up version of "All you need is love". End of episode 7
3x08. "Pride and Poison Ivy"
Quick synopsis: It's Karofsky's big moment. But will the truth really set you free? Kurt and Blaine decide to take Karofsky to a Pride Parade, while Santana helps Ivy get a job at a movie theater, only to find out that Ivy has a crush on the usher (who's a guy). Alice makes her final appearence on the show (for now) by helping New Directions build a home for charity.
The episode will come soon. Also, there's been enough Santana/Ivy plots for now. So hopefully, there'll be less of her until something big happens to Santana.
|I compeltely LOVE 3x07! I loved how you got the problems of The Beatles to contemplate the problems between the Glee Club members. This seriously feels like a really bonding moment between everyone. I don't know anything about The Beatles other than they're a rock band, so I wouldn't be able to do such a great job. And what are your plans with Emma? Like is she gonna end up leaving in the end? I don't want to do the next episode and somehow mess up your plans.|
Thanks a lot, I kind of studied the beattles and their music, and wich songs would suit perfectly inside this episode's plot. I just knew about 2 Beatles songs befroe writting this episode.
Ok to tell you what are my plans with Emma I'll have to give a spoiler alert, since everyone should know in case they decide to write something about her.
I think it would be cool for Will to ask her to marry him to convince her into staying. However the writer may get her to answer yes or no, depending on how he feels about them getting married, but I really feel it's time for Will to propose.
|i liked the 7th episode. as for the 8th, i think it's good for alice to leave for a while but i would love for her to come back around the 12th-13th episode, but not kind as she turned to be in the last episodes. i would love for her to make a dynamic comeback, and being devious again! |
but very good storylines until now!
|actually i have an idea for her return so i hope i get to do her episode but we'll see!!! looking forward to 8th episode tho!|
What ever happened to episode 8?
OK, I was wondering if you were still gonna do it. I still hope you get to write an episode every now and then...
Episode 3x08 preview
Will's best friend from high school Erick Reed (Special Guest Star: Joseph Gordon Levitt) is getting divorced, so he comes to Will for help and asks him if he can stay at his place.

Will decides to hide this from him and asks Terri to pretend they're still married for a while.
Also the third anual boys-vrs-girls mashup competition takes place in this episode, with Erick as the "Special Guest Judge".
OK, I was wondering if you were still gonna do it. I still hope you get to write an episode every now and then...
