After the most emotional episode of Glee yet where the students at McKinley High suffered from the effects of a(n accidental) school shooting, the latest ep took a complete 180-degree turn with more light-hearted events. See the sweetest (and a little weird) moments from the “Sweet Dreams” show here:
Sam develops an alter ego named Evan. Evan Evans. Post-shooting, the New Directions members are working through some issues. This just so happens to be one of the most peculiar.
Blaine’s suspicious of Becky. New Cheerios coach Roz Washington suspects either Blaine or Becky cast a hex of sorts on Sue that caused her to bring a gun to school (remember, she took the fall for Becky), so she makes the Cheerios co-captains swear they wouldn’t do the same to her. But during their oath, Becky gets antsy, which causes Blaine to think there’s more to the story than Sue suggested.
Marley wants the glee club to perform one of her original songs at Regionals. But Will’s not having any of it. Instead, he yells at his students for not listening to him, or performing the music he wants. Rather than challenge Schue again, Marley asks a few of the glee kids to sing one of her songs in the auditorium. Will walks in mid-tune and decides that a Marley original would be great for the competition.
Finn goes to college… with Puck! After kissing Emma and punching out Brody, Finn’s kinda been laying low and, ya know, partying it up with his BFF. That is, until Puck becomes the voice of reason and tells Finn to get his act together. So Finn makes up with Will, apologizes to Rachel and decides to do well in school so he can become a teacher.
Rachel gets a callback for Funny Girl. Originally, Rach was going to sing a Barbra Streisand song for her audition. However, her biological mother, Shelby, who moved to New York to become the head of a Broadway daycare center (don’t ask), convinces Rachel it’s better for her to be herself rather than attempt to replicate Barbra’s Fanny Brice character, which no one could ever do. The magical song she chose for her tryout: “Don’t Stop Believin’.”
