Episode Synopsis: The New Directions’ stage smiles are about to crack because it’s audition season at McKinley High. Mr. Schuester bequeathed the direction of the musical to Artie, Bieste, and Emma so he could fox trot with his newly formed Booty Camp. Rachel, Kurt, and Blaine all nail their solos for West Side Story try outs and as if Kurt didn’t have enough on his plate (what with vying for the lead and trying not to break his neck on his homemade jungle gym) he’s decided to audition for another role: senior class president. And in a largely foreseen (but still dramatic) twist, Shelby Corcoran returns to Lima with baby Beth and lots of purple clothes in tow, hoping that Puck and Quinn will be a part of their baby’s life. That is, until she sees Franken-Quinn in all of her unwashed, 90s grunge, Smells-Like-Teen-Spirit-esque glory. And in a not-so-foreseen twist, Quinn returns to normal to convince everyone that she’s perfect for the role of Beth’s mother. And that’s what you missed on Glee!
Mr. Schue announces that he’s forming a dance boot camp, aptly named Booty Camp, in order to really whip some of the New Directions into shape for this year’s competitions. You know what else he needs to whip into shape? His color palette. That brown jacket with the gray shirt and gray plaid tie is a monstrosity
Okay, he’s back in his vest. Phew. I know most people aren’t fans of his vests, but I kind of dig them.
Booty Camp largely consists of him and Mike showing off—sometimes in slow motion to really rub it in their faces—and then teaching everyone else how to step to the left in tandem with the rest of the group. This is probably why he needs to wear loose, comfortable clothes from Old Navy.
YAWN. I’ll bet you’re wishing there was a vest in this picture now, huh?
His not-so-happy campers have decided to use their clothing to express their boredom (Finn and Puck), muscles (Mike), and love for garments found on the boardwalk. Yes, Mercedes, I am talking about you. Seriously? A strategically ripped t-shirt with your name spray-painted on the front?.
As usual, though, I can’t find fault in Kurt and Blaine’s choice of dancewear. I love that Kurt’s sweater has little bow-tie tassels! It really is all in the details.
