Bieste’s elopment makes Emma want to marry Will, and that makes him think wedding bells, although maybe not, what with the OCD and all. On the ever slippery slope to teacher-student inappropriateness, Will turns to his students to not only think of which song he should sing for the proposal, but to be his best man. Doesn’t he have grown-up friends? Sam’s still trying to convince Mercedes to ditch the football player and rekindle the summer lovin’ and this leads him to join sychronized swimming. Becky, with thoughts narrated by Helen Mirren, loves Artie, but Artie isn’t so sure about dating another handicapable person. Finn wants to be a hero like his dad, but it turns out his dad OD’ed in Cincinnati and no one told him. So instead he decides to propose to Rachel.
Song of the Night: “We Found Love”. Mostly because I dig the vintage bathing suit look the ladies had going on.
Melodramatic Rachel Solo of the Week: I was going to say “The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face” because I thought she totally cried from note one to upstage the other girls. Then she tuned out what Finn had to say about his Dad to sing “Without You”.
Santana’s Snark: “Oh wait, the assignment wasn’t ‘make everything about Rachel Berry and make everyone watch it,’ was it?”
How Sue Sees It: “Stop buttoning your shirts up all the way like a demented 90-year-old. You look like you’re auditioning for the lead in your nursing-home production of Awakenings.”
Outfit of the Week: Finally! Some Anthropologietastic outfits from Emma Pillsbury! She brought it all episode long, but I think my favourite was the one during the proposal – tealy-blue and looks like it’s covered in constellations. Can we please see the inside of her well organized closet?
Worst Outfit of the Week: I’m going to give this one to Sugar for her insane outfit during the opening number. I don’t even know what that was.
Tracksuit count: 3
Stop by on Friday for full recap from Ritchie.
