Ugh. I am SO over Quinn right now. Her pink hair and too-emo-to-care-about-anything attitude is really rubbing me the wrong way. This week Shelby – Rachel’s mom and the woman who adopted Quinn and Puck’s baby – returned to Lima. She’s heading up a show choir at the request of Sugar’s parents since she wasn’t accepted into Glee. Shelby told Quinn and Puck she wants them to be a part of Beth’s life, but Quinn needs to clean up her act first.
I was so happy to see Puck in his own adorable scene since there was hardly any of him in the premiere. He went to Shelby’s house to see Beth, bringing with him a negative drug test and saying he stopped drinking (except beer, naturally) and started doing homework. He even drew a picture for her so she would think of him when she looked at it. If I weren’t already sure I love Puck, this would’ve been the convincer.
By the end of the episode, Quinn was back to blonde and went to apologize to Schue for being awful to him earlier. It’s just an act though. She told Puck she’s doing what she has to do in order to win full custody of Beth. I’ll admit I know next to nothing about adoption, but I’m pretty sure if you agree to adoption, you can’t really take her back.
Elsewhere, Brittany wanted to run Kurt’s campaign for class president, but he wasn’t loving her unicorn-themed posters or the gift bags she awkwardly called “Kurt Hummel’s Bulging Pink Fun Sack.” He wanted to go for a toned down effect, especially after learning the casting committee (Coach Beiste, Emma and Artie) for West Side Story feared he was too “delicate” for the lead role. Eventually he decided to embrace his unicorn-ness, but it was too late – Brittany is running for class president herself.
Blaine wanted to audition for the lead in the play as well, but he saw Kurt wasn’t ok with that and decided to only audition for minor characters. The casters/directors wanted him to read for the lead instead. He looked very torn, and Kurt looked very hurt. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say this may be a cause of friction down the line.
Other tidbits from the episode: Schue implemented a mandatory Booty Camp to teach the less coordinated glee clubbers how to dance. Finn seems set on staying in Lima after graduation and working for Burt in his body shop. Sue is still running for office with the intention to get rid of the arts in public schools.
As far as the music goes, I wasn’t too impressed. I’m not a big fan of Broadway songs (most likely because I don’t know any of them), so I’d rather them sing more mainstream songs. I know this season is going to be very Broadway heavy, but hopefully they can sprinkle some pop in as well.
