The show started off with a bang…or a mission. Sue Sylvester has a goal to run for political office. She wants to be a representative and can’t find a platform that will boost her in the ratings. Her sidekick says everybody loves someone to hate…which gives her an idea.
After she attacks the piano in the hallway and gets support from a fellow teacher she has never met before, her light bulb goes off. What does she come up with? Vote for her and she will suspend all arts programs until the kids can read at age appropriate level.
What happened to Quinn? Dyed hair and a strange outfit…is it a phase for her? She joined the skanks club even! She is invited back to the Glee club by Rachel and looks like she might be considering it…because they need her and her Belinda Carlisle voice.
In an effort to try and convince her back the next day, the Glee club starts a recruitment procedure in the cafeteria. Great number…until it ends with a food fight. While they commiserate in the choir room, Sugar Motto walks in. She proclaims she is awesome and better than all of them. Of course, she has Asperger’s, so she can say that, according to herself. In an effort to prove to them she is the best ever, she decides to sing…and it all goes downhill from there. Not only are there clothes covered in filth, but now their ears hurt too.
An argument ensues on dumping her or keeping her on. Just as they are considering what to do to let her down gently, in comes the news the Coach is on the attack again. Now, they have to go on the defensive and attack her where it hurts. And glitter is obviously it. Very clever…every speck of glitter represents a child that will be hurt because of her cut in the arts programs. After he dumps it over her head, he tells her she is glitter bombed! Rock on!
After a spectacular number out in the courtyard…the purple piano bursts in to flames. Is Coach everywhere?
Rachel and Kurt go to try out for the performing school, but were awed by the performance by the students. They sob together in the car after and say they will never make it in to the exclusive school. After pumping each other back up, they head home and wait to see what happens the next week…in Glee Club.
