If you haven‘t seen this episode yet, don’t take your eyes off the screen during the ‘Celebrity Skin’ music number. I missed approximately two seconds of sweet Sam Evans shirtlessness because I was typing while they sang. Those are two seconds I will never get back. At least not in HD…until next week, when the free version of Hulu relinquishes the episode to us. In addition, if they wanted us to pay attention at all to Blaine’s side of the debate, they should have had him go first, and not shown Sam getting dressed backstage while he spoke. Not that I’m complaining or anything.
Speaking of abs that just won’t quit, I totally could have done without Brody and Rachel in this episode if it weren’t for Finn showing up in the end. If you think I’m obsessed with Sam, you should have seen how much I worshipped Finn before Ol’ Trouty Mouth rolled into town. Again, I’m super angry that they make him out to be so stupid this season. There’s no way you’re going to convince me that a guy who has managed to master a completely alien language (Navi) and is still on track to graduate after switching schools three times during his high school career is this dumb.
As if we weren’t already thinking about sex, Emma also conveniently has a pot of orchids on her desk, which made me laugh, though I’m concerned for Will and Emma. Not only did Ryan Murphy say that every couple could fall apart this season, it looks as though he’s going to make it all happen next week. As if that ever happens in real life! I’d like to know what happened to Burt’s campaign platform for the arts, but I’m assuming they’ll feature that in conjunction with Will’s decision to leave. If not, then this show is even more doomed than I thought. I’d like to know who will run the glee club in his absence. Perhaps Finn, now that he seems to have left the army?
It should go without saying that Sam and Brittany’s duet was my favorite number. Though I actually liked all of the song choices for the first time in three years, I really wanted a car to come along and run over Brody and Rachel while they ran in the street during ‘A Change Would Do You Good.’ However, I don’t have any complaints about Sarah Jessica Parker. Though her character comes off as a bit too sugary-sweet, it’s not the reason I really like her. She just seemed so genuine, but maybe that’s just in comparison to the Kate Hudson train wreck, which is hopefully ancient history now. After watching the promos, I fully expected this to be my favorite episode of the season so far, and as always, I was right.
