OMGlee, was last night’s double-header of Glee eventful. Between the prep for Nationals, Nationals themselves and like, all that Tina/Rachel/Puck/Bieste stuff in between, we almost wanna say that “Props/Nationals” was the best ep of the season! But that’s not to say we didn’t have issues with it, too. Check out our top 8 most unrealistic and realistic things that went down last night. Just beware — spoilers ahead!
1. Realistic: Tina feeling overshadowed by Rachel.Tina Cohen-Chang, we totally feel ya. Rachel getting all the attention just isn’t fair. So even though that whole part when Tina bumped her head in a fountain and envisioned herself as Rachel Berry was a bit bizarre (but come on, how cute of a couple did Finn/Puck make as Kurt/Blaine?), her feelings were pretty legit. But we also loved how Tina got past all the rivaly and Rach and Tina had an amazing duet and even drove all the way to another school together so Rachel could stalk down Mrs. Thibodeaux…
2. Unrealistic: Quinn walking — and dancing! — already. Look, just because Quinn stood up for about 30 seconds at the McKinley prom doesn’t mean she’s all of a sudden back to normal and no longer needs a wheelchair. How did she go from barely walking to dancing on the Nationals stage in one week? Shouldn’t she have at least transitioned with a cane or a walker or some kind of crutches?! Anything?!
3. Realistic: Puck getting picked on for being dumb. After word gets out that Puck failed his History test and wouldn’t graduate, he and Rick the Stick duke it out at the dumpsters. But when Bieste catches Puck with a knife, they have a heartfelt moment about how they both feel like nothing, and he makes her realize that she should leave Cooter because she deserves better. We kinda love this blossoming friendship.
4. Unrealistic: Puck is allowed to retake his History test. Coach Bieste convinced the history teacher to let Puckerman retake the test so he has another shot at graduation. And that outfit of him dressed as a girl proved that he cares about his friends and not just himself, so that totally helped. Ok, maybe this is kindarealistic, but what’s unrealistic here is thinking he’s actually gonna pass it the second time around. Sorry. Just being honest. And also, can we just mention how unrealistic it was that Bieste magically knew all the words to Taylor Swift’s “Mean” and chimed right in on Puck’s solo? Just sayin.
5. Realistic: Perez Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and that other random dude are the Nationals judges. It makes sense that a celeb blogger and a former celeb would judge the competish — LiLo had a comeback to uphold and Perez, ya know, needed first-hand experiences to blog about or whatever. And Lindsay didused to be a singer herself, you know. So this judging panel made total sense. Yes?
6. Unrealistic: Mrs. Thibodeaux shows up to Nationals to see Rachel perform.Well, we guess Rach’s persistence paid off, because even though she came late, Thibodeaux showed up in the middle of Rachel’s Celine Dion solo (side note — did you cry during that performance too?!) and even joined in on the standing ovation. And then Jesse even went up to her after the show and told her that Rachel is the most talented person he’s ever met. Um, looks like NYADA isn’t a long shot anymore!
7. Realistic: New Directions wins Nationals! Finally! We would’ve hated Ryan Murphy forever if ND came in second or third place (or 12th like they did last year — gasp), but this year’s performances were so good it was so obvious they’d take the crown. And then it was the cutest thing ever when the rest of McKinley high celebrated their victory — and Emma and Will finally, um, sealed the deal, because he’s a winner and Emma wanted to treat him like one.
8. Realistic: Will Schuester Wins the Teacher of the Year Award.Well, duh. When Finn and Rach presented that coveted plaque to Mr. Schue, we literally cried and were all like, “OMG, we wish he was our teacher too!” Then the Glee club ended the ceremony with a rounding rendition of “We Are the Champions.” How approps.
What’d you think of this double ep of Glee? Whose storyline was your fave? Which performance was the best?
