This week on "Glee," New Directions paid tribute to Whitney Houston while couples explored various challenges in their relationships.
Kurt Goes 'Between The Sheets'
Kurt needed to find some scores for his NYADA audition, so he paid a visit to "Between The Sheets" (an appropriately named music store). Fortunately (or unfortunately), cute new guy Chandler has taken in interest in Kurt.
I was actually disappointed that it didn't go anywhere with Chandler. He seems like a better match for Kurt. He appreciates Kurt's flamboyant style and fabulous fashion sense, and he's auditioning for NYU.
"Alpha Gay" Blaine has become Dullsville lately. Kurt even compared their relationship to two lesbians who had been together for so long that they had become more like sisters. We want more Chandler and Karofsky (Max Adler).
Texting PSAs: Don't Text & Drive, Don't Text & Flirt
"Glee" seems to be obsessed with Texting PSAs these days. First, Quinn's (Dianna Agron) car accident reminded viewers to not text and drive.
Now, Kurt and Chandler seem to be reminding viewers not to text and flirt (with someone other than your significant other). As Blaine sang, "It's Not Right, But It's Okay."
Kurt's flirtation was a bit of a gray area. Blaine insists that Kurt was cheating (even though nothing physical happened). I'd put this more in the category of "mental cheating."
After a session with Emma (Jayma Mays), we learned that Blaine had become distant because he was afraid of losing Kurt next year.
I'm still not buying the whole plot device of making Blaine a junior. Last year at Dalton, Blaine was a mentor figure to Kurt, and the Warblers had referred to him as "junior Warbler Mr. Blaine Anderson". Then again, "Glee" is not known for its continuity.
Groom-zilla Will Schuester
Emma wants the perfect wedding, and she wants to take her time. (Funny, that wasn't an issue when she eloped with Carl!)
However, Will (Matthew Morrison) insists on moving the wedding up to May, and he will do anything to make it happen, even if it means firing their wedding planner and making his OCD fiancee get married on a campground. (Apparently there is more than one way to pronounce Lavender).
Upon closer examination, we learned that Will was in a hurry to plan this wedding because he was afraid that his glee kids wouldn't come back later on. Emma reminded him that the bond he has with his students is strong enough to withstand the test of time. Those glee kids will return for the wedding, no matter when it takes place.
Quinn & Sam (Larsen)
Quinn has a new love interest in the form of Joe Hart (Samuel Larsen). Interestingly enough, Larsen had once auditioned for the role for Sam Evans (Chord Overstreet) before winning "The Glee Project". So he would have with Quinn either way at some point.
Joe and Quinn bonded while he was helping her with her physical therapy sessions. He think she's the "prettiest, nicest, best-smelling girl" he's ever met. The problem is that he's struggling with his faith. Should he hold true to his beliefs or give into temptations of the flesh?
Ultimately, I don't think this relationship will go anywhere. She's eager to complete her physical therapy, graduate, and leave for Yale. I don't think the writers will keep her in that wheelchair forever.
Do you think Kurt and Blaine will survive next year? Will Kurt and Rachel (Lea Michele) get accepted to NYADA? Will Quinn get out of that wheelchair anytime soon?
