Aaaand we’re back with the highly-anticipated “Thriller/Heads Will Roll” medley that aired last night on our beloved Glee. It was great. It was spectacular. And it made us ALMOST like Karofsky (welcome back, btw. We didn’t quite get our episodic intake of hate while you were away). Almostbutnotquite. For one brief moment we thought we saw a change in the closeted homophobe as he struggled to resist joining his peers, half-dead on the football field. No amount of stubbornness can keep anyone away from dancing to “Thriller.” Karofsky loved it. But the next day it was back to the old nasty meathead; he who is desperate to hang on to the status quo. You’ve seen High School Musical, Karofsky. Things change, whether you and Sharpay want them to or not. Stop assuming you’re a high school hero (fact: you’re not) and just let things happen. If you like to jam, join New Directions. Gahd, why must you be so dramatic about everything?
By they way, I thought we were past popular kids versus geeks? Granted, I’m ten years out of high school and think people with good voices are cool, but aren’t we past drive-by slushing? Why is the existence of New Directions still an issue with the football team? And the football team also holds the hockey team in low regard? You’re all taking the high school social ladder system way too seriously. Am I just being too idealistic about high school kids these days? Can’t everyone just get along? This is me, opening up the forum for readers to weigh in.
Sue‘s falling apart, using cannons and bleach as coping mechanisms. She’s reached a point where winning Nationals is more important than a living Cheerio. Even Katie Couric gave her a thumbs-down. It’s time to feel again, Sue. You suffered the cold, harsh reality of second place thanks to Will Schuester and Coach Bieste. The Cheerios fell from grace during the ascension of New Directions. In these times of peril, it’s the strong who survive. Don’t let Katie Couric’s (very) low opinion of you determine your destiny as a winner. You’re Sue Sylvester, damn it. You have customized track suits and a close, personal relationships with the Clintons.
Things I Thought About While Warming Up For The “Thriller” Number
I sensed a bit of a spark between Puck and Rachel during their “Need You Now” duet. I very much liked their brief romance, and would not object to a reunion.
Quinn, don’t kiss Finn. Remember Sam? The adorable blonde with the huge jaw?
Karofsky makes me very uncomfortable. I think it’s the eyes.
Hello again to “Bills Bills Bills.” Well done, Dalton Warblers.
Tell me you saw Rachel’s face as she walked onto the football field. You’d think she was about to present a lifetime acheivement award to Barbra Streisand at the Tony Awards.
