It's time to start the music. It's time to light the lights. It's time to get things started on The Muppet Show… wait, no. This is Glee!
After many Gleeks enjoyed a trip down to tryptophan town, they were treated to a very special Thanksgiving episode of their favorite musical romp. No, Sam Evans didn't bust out his guitar to play Adam Sandler's homage to the turkey day, but there were still plenty of laughs — and one story line heavier that a sack of mash potatoes.
So if you can find a way out of your food coma for five minutes, we'll give you a brief rundown of what went down last night while you were gobbling up your apple pie.
Blaine Anderson Is the Next Jim Henson
Ain't nothing wrong with that!
The bulk of the episode was spent in the mind of our favorite, bow-tieing crooner, as he aimed to leave his last mark on McKinely high school. However, when his ideas for National are met with complete resistance, Blaine has a bit of a hissy fit, which then manifests itself into the most peculiar dream after a gas leak in the school. As he drifts off, he imagines his classmates as puppets (high quality felt!) who cater and agree with him at every turn. But real life isn't quite like that, and it takes some real finesse to get his real friends to understand how much Nationals will mean to him, being a senior and all. In the end, he's granted a solo and in return, he creates puppets for all his pals, including those in New York, who literally had nothing to do with his story, but look so damn cute as puppets, who wants to argue.
Sexy Sue Sylvester
An age old question finally gets an answer: Why does McKinley's baddest cheerleading coach wear a track suit? The answer was finally revealed after Sue manages to land herself the permanent position of McKinley principal, but only because the superintendent thought she was a man. After a bit of hallucinating herself, she reaches out to Unique get a makeover– but the plan backfires when she's denied a date with Breaking Bad‘s Christopher Cousins even after she gets all dolled up. As she returns to her wardrobe of choice, she reveals how when she first put on the stripes back in 1986, the suit instantly causes her students to fear her, and in turn, respect her. The 80s really were a CRAZY time!
Like Brother, Like Half Brother
Long story kept relatively short, Little Puckerman almost lived the life of his older half-brother when Bree, the maniacal Cheerio, comes to him to report she is knocked up. The pregnancy turns out to be a scare, but the aftermath is very real for both Bree and Jake. The latter takes the moment as a wake up call to get back to the man he was when he was with Marley. But when he tries again to rekindle their flame, Marley again shuts him down, claiming she still can't trust him after what he's done. It's all good, Jakey. Just watch season 2 of this show — RIB makes it all right in the end.
And In The New Corner…
Kurt makes a decision about where the band plays their first gig, which at first they all think is a total bust, until the one person who shows up for their show puts a video of them out into the cosmos and it lands them a second, even better gig. Alls well that ends well.
And that, like your Mom's special stuffing, is all done!
