What’s up Gleeks! It’s been awhile. Glee is back and it’s steamy and scandalous as usual. This week’s episode was all about gettin’ naaaaaaked.
Rachel gets casted as the main character of some weird student film about a grandma with Alzheimer’s. One scene of the movie requires her to go topless! Rachel is not sure if she is ready for this type of role but she decides to go with it anyway. Kurt tries to bring her to her senses by calling her a “slutty Barbie” but that didn’t get through to her. So instead, Kurt calls up reinforcements: Santana and Quinn.
The girls tell Rachel that she shouldn’t lose herself and feel forced to do something she isn’t comfortable with. While shooting the topless scene, Rachel backs out and remembers who she is.
Back in McKinley, Sam and Blaine finally brought down the Warblers by exposing their drug enhancement use. Because of this, the New Directions are now going to Regional’s!
This means that the glee club has to do some last minute fundraising. Tina, who is actually getting lines now, decides that the glee club should do a special “Men of McKinley” calendar to fundraise.
Sam on the other hand, is all gung-ho on this plan. This is because he just found out that he has the lowest SAT’s scores in McKinley while his girlfriend Brittany has the highest. Of course Brittany isn’t really smart. She just lucked out by drawing random shapes like penises by circling the bubbles on the exam a certain way. Although she believes she is smarter now and says she will apply to colleges such as Stanford and Sons and University of California at Charles Barkley’s house.
Sam feels like he’s no good and the only thing he’s good at is looking hot. He pushes himself and the rest of the McKinley boys to work out and make this calendar the hottest calendar ever. Blaine notices this and tells Sam that he’s not just a hot guy; he’s more than that. He then shows Sam a video that the glee club put together, talking about all the good things Sam has done. I really liked this scene because I’m sure everyone kind of forgot how great Sam’s character is. He makes everyone laugh with his impressions, pushed people to fulfill their dreams and even supported his family singlehandedly when they were poor. The sentimental video brought Sam to tears. And I’m not going to lie, but I almost teared up a bit as well.
Emma, who finally made an appearance, also helps Sam look into some college that do not require SAT’s or ACT’s scores.
Jake and Marley also take their relationship to the next level by trying to tell each other “I love you.” Marley tries to go first by dedicating a song to him but she still can’t say the words out to him. Jake picked up on it and his new best friend, Ryder tells him to say it first. Jake then sings to Marley in front of everyone in glee club an awesome rendition of Ne-yo’s “Let Me Love You.” He also writes in her calendar “I love you” but the two actually never say it out loud. I wonder if this will be a problem later on in their relationship but for now it seems like everything is all good.
Overall, this episode was better than last week. I didn’t understand the storyline at all last week. This was definitely more cohesive and funny. Can’t wait for next week!
I loved the song choices in this episode. Definitely one of the best this season.
1. Like I said before, Jake won my heart over when he say “Let Me Love You.”
2. Marley and Jake singing “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri made my heart flutter.
3. Lea Michele sounded AMAZING singing “Torn”
4. And this!
1. Santana is moving to NYC!!!
2. Finn blackmails Sue Sylvester with her ancient Penthouse Centerfold.
3. Fondue For Two is back!!!
4. At first Artie wasn't on board with the calendar because isn’t quite comfortable with his body. But Artie ends up posing for the calendar after getting a confidence boost from his fellow models. You go, Artie!
5. Look at this gem I found
