  • WTF just happened?

    1.0
    I really don't know what the hell I was watching. Everyone was completely out of character, the plot didn't make any sense and the song choice was questionable. This season should have ended with the previous episode, now it's going to be a mess.
  • A Painful Back-Up Plan

    6.0
    Well, that was a painful episode to watch; I really don't know where the writers are going any more.

    - After only 40-something performances (what is that, like 6 weeks worth?), Rachel's dream come true is now a rut and she wants more, risking what she already has.

    - Kurt forgets his very first lesson from Carmen Tibideaux and instead of "feeling" the song, he goes full on camp, in front of Shirley Maclaine, and now he's the underdog to Blaine, whereas two episodes ago, Kurt was top dog and Blaine was insecure; boy, do things go full circle in Glee in a hurry.

    - Blaine's benefactor wants him to break off the engagement and does not want Kurt in the show, and instead of being honest, Blaine lies to Kurt, which means that the engagement will definitely be off by the season finale.

    The best parts go to Mercedes and Santana for this episode, and to the music; the best numbers for me: Story of My Life and The Rose.moreless
