Things got more than a little crazy on Glee’s Valentine’s Day episode “I Do.” A pregnancy surprise, a hooker in our midst and a runaway bride. Oh, and did we mention all the surprising sex?! What worked, what didn’t? Here’s how “I Do” scored on Broadway.com’s Glee Report Card.
NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION
Betty Pillsbury (Glee Project standout Ali Stroker, playing Emma's niece): “Andrew Garfield is nerdy hot, you are Stephen Hawking’s younger brother.” —Betty on why Artie doesn’t measure up
Best Number: Blaine and Kurt’s wedding duet “Just Can’t Get Enough” was fun and super adorable. It was great to have Klaine together again, and we especially loved seeing the Glee kids get down at the wedding reception.
Best Line: “We all should have known that a Valentine’s Day wedding was just asking for a disaster.” —Quinn summing up the episode
Best Advice: “OK, Tina. I say this with total love but the moment we all saw coming is finally here. You’re a hag. You’re hagged out. You’re in love with Blaine and it’s creepy. Stop.” —Kurt telling Tina about herself
Scene with the Most Heart: Finn and Rachel’s “she loves me, she loves me not” exchange at the wedding. Aw! Runner-Up: Ryder and Marley’s school corridor kiss.
Relationship of the Week: Blaine and Kurt! From their steamy pre-wedding hook-up to Blaine’s hotel room confession to making amends with “Hagatha Christie,” Klaine nailed it this week.
Star of the Episode: Jane Lynch as Sue Sylvester. Her unbelievable shenanigans at the wedding were the highlight of the episode. Who else get away with saying to a bride, “You’re a weird bird lady with a hollow pelvis and OCD, and Will Schuester is a weepy man-child whose greatest joy in life is singing with children, and his best friend —19,” just moments before the ceremony? #genius
“Relationships are a lot like flowers. If you find the right seed, put it in good soil, give it water and sunlight—bam, perfect bud. Then winter comes and the flower dies, but if you tend that garden, spring will come along and that flower will bloom again.”—Finn on why he and Rachel will end up together
“You said she has some kind of eating disorder thing right? Take her out to dinner, save a bunch of cash, then you can use that extra money to buy a ton of different lingerie. Have her put on a fashion show. Chicks love fashion.”—Puck’s Valentine’s Day advice for Jake
Ryan Murphy, are you serious? If Rachel really is pregnant, we’ll inevitably be subjected to a Maury Povich “you are not the father” moment (a la Quinn, Finn and Puck in season one). Also, Brody is moonlighting as hooker?! Whaaa? And Quinntana's a thing? Time to reel it in a bit, Mr. Murph.
A FOR EFFORT:
We couldn’t have been more excited to hear Stephen Sondheim’s “(Not) Getting Married Today” on Glee, but the execution was a mess. Why was Will asking Emma for his cufflinks while standing at the altar?
