It’s been only two weeks since the last new episode of Glee aired, but to this Gleek it feels like a lifetime. How about you?
Tonight, Glee returned on FOX to the delight of Gleeks everywhere who were left devastated by the events that took place in the amazing but intense final five minutes of Season 3’s sixth episode: “Mash Off”. If you don’t recall, our favorite still-in-the-closet, tough-as-nails, Cheerios Captain: Santana was faced with being an unfortunate casualty of a political slur campaign which is about to result in her being outed on a television spot to her entire hometown. To add insult to injury, she’s hardly come to terms with being a lesbian herself, let alone admitted it to her family. Her inner conflict and anger are all directed at a Mr. Finn Hudson – who called her out on her repressed sexuality in the hallway at school and unfortunately someone overheard and started this whole mess resulting in one hell of a slap in the face at last episode’s conclusion.
On top of furthering Santana’s story arc, this episode also promises to bring two of this season’s main storylines to a head. It’s a double election day! We will see the race for McKinley High’s Senior Class President and the Congressional Race come to a close. Who will win? How will the losers take it? It’s a nail-biter, folks. A NAIL-BITER!!!
An early synopsis of the episode also states that the Puck/Quinn/Shelby storyline becomes more complicated and that there’s some sort of “shocking” event that will complicate New Directions’ chances to compete at Sectionals. Read on for my reactions, opinions and general musings about Glee’s latest episode: “I Kissed A Girl”.
(As always, and I’m sure you all realize this, there are many many spoilers after the break. You’ve been warned.)
