Concerned that Sue is up to no good, Will pays a visit to an instructor of a competing Glee Club to see what information Sue may be leaking, which leads to the club getting a look at their hair-rising competition. Meanwhile, Kurt gives Rachel a makeover to impress Finn, but he may have ulterior motives.
The pregnancy storyline unfortunately is the worst part of Glee and does not seem to be ending anytime soon. Quinnís pregnancy while at times can provide for some emotional moments is tainted by the storyline involving Schuesterís wife, Terri. Itís hard to believe that after all this time Mr. Schuester has yet to discover his wife is not actually pregnant. At no point did he ever touch her belly? But, there was nice development with Quinn who started to question if her reason for not keeping the child comes from her not wanting Finn to be the father.
So to test that theory Quinn employs Kurtís services in giving Rachel a makeover as a way to distract Finn. It works, giving Quinn an opportunity to spend time with Puck, the childís biological father. The entire episode was about distraction: Quinn distracting Finn, Terri distracting Mr. Schuester with a new car, Rachel distracting Finn with her new look and Mr. Schuester using large wild wigs to distract from the classís performance. The episode honestly felt more like a distraction from the plot more than anything.
As usual Mr. Schuester is suspicious that Sue has been giving information about the Glee club to their rival, Jane Addams Academy. So he pays them a visit to investigate. He meets club director Grace Hitchens (Eve) and after learning about their financial struggles, invites Jane Addmas team to practice in McKinely High auditorium. Unfortunately for Mr. Schuester, their performance is better (not really) than he expected and Mr. Schuester begins to believe that the Glee club may not have a shot at winning Sectionals.
This is the only episode of the season in which the choreography did not hold up to other performances in previous episodes. The Jane Addams dancers were mostly moving wildly with their hair taking away from the performance, which Rachel noticed. She even tried to reassure Mr. Schuester that their number is far better than Jane Addams. But that didnít work.
Meanwhile, Terri and her sister, Kendra (Jennifer Aspen) devise a plan to make sure Quinn gives her child to them, after Quinn mentions keeping the baby. The plan involves Quinn watching over Kendraís loud rowdy children which will likely change her mind about keeping the child. But Quinn brings reinforcement: Puck. After being tied up together by the kids, the pair quickly gain control with some music. Babysitting brings Quinn and Puck closer together and it becomes apparent that her feelings towards Puck are growing.
Until, unexpectedly, Puck shows his true colors after Quinn finds out that while babysitting with her, Puck was sexting (sending sex texts) to Santana (Naya Rivera). His reasoning, which was pretty low, is that although he wants to be with Quinn heís not going to stop being himself. Puck had been setting himself up as the good guy with the bad boy reputation, and it was working nicely because like I said in previous articles, characters with layers are more appealing and contribute to the larger story. The way he explains his behavior came off cold and heartless as if he didnít know it would hurt Quinn, which actually goes against his character since he does care for her. Anyway, this of course brings her back into the arms of Finn.
Kurt advises Rachel to dress more, well, slutty to attract Finn, although Kurt knows that Finn is least attracted to women who wear too much makeup and not enough clothes. Both Rachel and Kurt have a crush on Finn, and after her attempts fail and she realizes Kurt was lying to her, the two agree that neither one of them matter to Finn because he loves Quinn. The whole game of distraction simply told us what we already know: Quinn is giving her baby to Terri, Rachel and Kurt love Finn, Terri keeps lying to Mr. Schuester about the baby and Mr. Schuester is worried about Sectionals. Did I miss anything? Was it necessary to see this episode? No.
But thatís not to say the episode was without nice moments. After having a heart to heart talk with Terri, Quinn finds comfort in handing her baby over to the Schuesters accepting that the child will be in a loving family, thanks mostly to Mr. Schuester. There was a funny moment at the end of the episode as Sue convinces Grace Hitchens and Dalton, another rival, to use the two songs the Glee club will be performing at Sectionals to give them an edge.
This is the only episode that felt a little disappointing. The dance numbers werenít that entertaining, just a bunch of bodies moving around wildly and certain characters made decisions that were, well, odd. Why would Quinn want Finn to be distracted by Rachel of all people? I thought they were rivals. But every series has their decent episode and this is one of them for Glee. I still believe the rest of the season has potential, and hopefully the pregnancy storyline will get resolved soon. Really soon.
