The biggest thing in this episode, at least for me, and the only thing I really cared about was Damian Mcginty’s debut as Rory. Rory is the foreign exchange student from Ireland who is living with Brittany. He wants to get into her pot of gold so spends the majority of this episode trying to grant her three wishes. Seriously. Pairing Rory up with the dumbest character who can’t understand a word he’s saying is funny and all but I can understand him way more than I can understand Heather’s mumbling.
When he’s not taking all the marshmallows out of Lucky Charms for Brittany, Rory just really wants some friends. And he’s just so adorable that I find it hard to believe a cute guy with an accent would have any trouble making friends in high school. I guess it’s more believable that trailer douches with mullets would beat him up all day long. Poor kid. He calls his mom “Mommy” you jerks! Rory idolizes Finn and Finn wants to help the Glee club which is under certain distress right now so, he asks Rory to join. And Rory really has a great voice. He sings Bein’ Green and I like this one better out of the two songs he gets to sing. He also sings Take Care of Yourself as his audition for the group. Kurt spends the performance making bitch faces because there is now a second guy who can sing a falsetto. If that was someone making a face at Kurt I’d never hear the end of it from Klainers. Invisible socks!
Sorry guys but I enjoyed Santana’s crazy faces when Blaine celebrated the Glee club making enough money for their show. Blaine and the group, minus Santana, dance around the room and sing Last Friday Night. It’s a fun song with no real purpose. Reminds me of season 1 when the kids would sing for no reason at all. Sue decides to personally attack the musical and fails at cutting the funds when Burt decides to run against her. Go Burt! You can be horny with rage all you want Sue but you will never be as flawless as that man.
Santana is joining the mullet bunch in bullying Rory for having a crush on Brittany. I thought the things Santana was saying to him were so sad. I just wanted to give him a hug. Santana wants Brittany all to herself and gets her to leave New Directions to join the Troubletones with Sugar and Mercedes. They perform a lackluster version of Candyman and I’m not really jumping out of my seat here. It reeks of spite and selfishness. Shelby is happy with the group though and she’s happy when Puck and Quinn offer to help babysit Beth. Quinn has a different idea and plants damaging evidence of child abuse around Shelby’s apartment.
Puck is shocked when she actually goes through with calling child services. Lucky for him, they apparently suck in Ohio and don’t have the time to investigate. Puck gets closer to Shelby when she helps him get more work for his pool cleaning business (hello shirtless Puck and season 1 shoutout!). Puck goes back to Shelby’s to get the things Quinn planted. While he’s there, he offers to help Shelby whenever she needs it and sings Waiting For A Girl Like You to Beth. Or was it to Shelby? Either way it’s getting gross up in here and the two of them kiss.
