Glee – Born This Way – Gleecap
The episode kicks off with Finn breaking Rachel’s nose with his bad dancing. Damn Finn. Now you know it’s time to take a lesson when you start breaking other people’s bones. Finn accompanies Rachel to the doctor who tells her she should be grateful for the accident because now she has the glorious opportunity of fixing her jewish shnoz. Um. Worst doctor ever award right over here? What doctor encourages their teenage patients to get a nose job? When Rachel comes to class announcing plans of a nose job to improve her voice, Schue uses this as an excuse to teach a lesson on acceptance. I don’t know Will. Letting Santana rant on and on about Rachel’s shnoz and Finn’s puffy nipples kind of solidified you were a crappy teacher. And kind of a crappy friend. I hated the way they were dealing with Emma’s OCD storyline. Having Will make her feel bad is not the way to force her to get help. Seriously. Someone page Marc Summers.
Quinn goes with Rachel to the doctor because she has Rachel’s ideal nose. It’s so sad that the girl the boy she’s in love with is dating is her ideal nose. Poor Rachel. The girls break into a duet of Unpretty and I Feel Pretty and it’s easily my favorite performance of the night. I usually consider Quinn as the weakest voice out of the cast but it really worked on this song and Rachel wasn’t overpowering her. The rest of the class try to talk Rachel out of getting the nose job because they all have things they hate about themselves. Finn even embraces his bad dancing and performs with Mike to I’ve Gotta Be Me. It’s not until Puck arranges a flashmob to dedicate Barbra Streisand to Rachel that she embraces her natural face. Yay Puckelberry!
Santana is off concealing the fact she’s a lesbian by plotting to get Kurt back in school and become prom queen at the same time. After catching Karofsky checking out Sam’s ass, she half blackmails him half strikes a deal with him to become each other’s beards. On the condition that he becomes anti bullying and allows Kurt to come back to school. That beret was pretty gay Dave. Just sayin. Karofsky apologizes to the glee club with Santana and promises to make amends with Kurt. Burt isn’t having it and I don’t really blame him. After all that money they spent on him he should probably stay at that school longer than a week. But alas. Kurt is back at Mckinley and he brought a top hat with him. Everyone is happy to see him and Blaine and The Warblers sing him a goodbye song in the middle of a courtyard. With a random band and grand piano just there. Out of nowhere. Blaine singing Somewhere Only We Know is great because I love the song but geez. Everyone crying over Kurt transferring need to calm down. He’s not dying or being shipped off to Afghanistan. You’ll still see him every day once the bell rings! He’s not even moving! Sheesh.
Equally ridiculous is this weird Lauren and Quinn storyline we’ve been given this week. Lauren is running for prom queen. That’s great but I think I saw a really bad Lifetime movie like this once. Quinn is pissed at the competition and basically tells Lauren she’ll make a fool out of herself and get pigs blood thrown on her. This causes Lauren to dig up some dirt on her opponent and she hits the jackpot. Quinn’s real name is Lucy. She used to be fat, a brunette, had acne, glasses, and a huge nose. LOL wow. This is probably the most random reveal on the show. The kids then get together to sing Gaga’s Born This Way while wearing tshirts with their biggest insecurities on them. My favorites probably go to Will’s Butt Chin shirt, Artie’s Four Eyes, and Puck’s I’m With Stupid arrow pointing to his crotch.
