Love was in the air at McKinley High for Valentine’s Day but mostly I was loving Rachel’s two Dads. The Glee debut of Jeff Goldblum and Brian Stokes Mitchell put the fabulous into an episode which would otherwise have been frustrating because it promised so much and finished up so little.
It was not just about Valentine’s Day in this episode, it was also the Regionals! Sugar gives the group the money they need for Regionals and throws a No Singles party to celebrate how rich she is. So we love her and we can do the rest of the episode because without the Regionals it would be pretty short.
Artie and Rory love Sugar too and they competed for her affection. As much as I love Damian McGinty (and I do love Damian McGinty), even if Rory did give her a puppy, Kevin McHale is the obvious choice here, girl! Go Artie!
Sugar agreed and chose him.
But not for long! Rory came to class and announced his student visa has been denied and he will be leaving to go back home to Ireland. Cue a very sad Rory singing Michael Buble’s Home (although I prefer Westlife’s version, especially as they are Irish too). I think this was Damian’s best Glee performance to date and so Sugar decided to take him to the party instead.
The next part made me mad. Santana and Brittany just want to be able to kiss in the hallways but someone has complained! Santana thought it was Joe, the born-again Christian, dreads wearing guitar player who is contractually obligated to take up screen time for seven episodes. Enough already!
Mercedes decided to come clean with Shane about her and Sam. She made him cry before her amazing performance of I Will Always Love You, and then she mad eme cry!
Kurt was excited that Blaine was his secret admirer (who else whould be sending him Gorilla-Grams and Valentines all week!). Oh wait…someone else. It’s Dave Karofsky! Yay for Kurt turning him down because he loves Blaine.
Now we need to be afraid for Dave as that little exchange being overheard is surely going to end in some nasty blackmail.
But let’s talk about Rachel’s dads. Where have they been all my life? They…are…amazing! They took to the McKinley stage singing about how excited they are that the two of them are getting married and suggested a dinner party with Finn and his family to celebrate.
Gotta love a little reverse psychology from the ‘rents, no?
At the Berry family dinner I don’t know what I enjoyed more: a beautiful rendition of You’re The Top by the entire Berry family, or the amazingly awkward dinner conversation about lube.
Hiram: I said Leroy, this guy sold us the wrong lube. That’s why the rubber is squeaking. That’s why it feels so weird when we start going really fast.
You’re right, the conversation about lube was way better.
Then there was more reverse psychology as the parents all announced that instead of dinner, Rachel and Fin should go upstairs and have sex and cohabitate.
They do go upstairs (honestly) but then Rachel takes forever to get ready. She takes so long poor Finn has to poop. Rachel announced that he certainly couldn’t poop there and should probably go home and poop when she’s not around. That led to an argument, Finn leaving, Rachel throwing a hairbrush, and an eavesdropping Hiram and Leroy toasting each other.
Now, I don’t know where Finn pooped and how it all happened, but by the end of the commercial break Finn and Rachel are loved up again. They announced plans to push up the wedding and get married in May. Just in time for the Glee season 3 finale!
They headed to Sugar’s party and we got to Blaine singing Loveshack to Kurt., whereupon Joe announced it’s like, totally okay to be gay and they all sing Cherish/Cherish to Brittany for Santana. Brittany and Santana kiss!
The whole Glee Heart episode was worth it for that kiss and Rachel’s Dads. So totally worth it…
