It’s felt like a really long season this year and tonight it finally ended. We found out who the catfish was, we saw the New Directions perform at Regionals, and we had a tearful goodbye.
Ahh, just what we need – another themed week! This week it’s – well, you may have guessed from the title – Stevie Wonder week!
Lights Out begins with Will Schuster telling the New Directions about the competition for Regionals and explaining that they have to ‘go big’ – when the power goes out.
The episode begins with Finn (Cory Monteith) at college, partying and accidentally participating in Harlem Shake scenes (very current Glee, well done, but we don’t need to see it so much!) all over campus. He seems to really enjoy it.
This episode starts off spectacularly disappointingly, with Brittany claiming – once again – that the end of the world is nigh. But it turns into an unusually tense episode – the most unexpected and dramatic so far this season.
This week, Glee meets reality. I feel this is necessary every couple of episodes, just so that I know that it’s actually rooted in the real world and not some weird place where everybody has amnesia and nobody talks about things that happened in the last week.
It’s heating up in the choir room this week – everyone is fighting and getting their anger out through song.
This week’s theme for the Glee club is ‘movies’. I thought we had covered this quite extensively over the past four seasons, but there’s never been an episode dedicated to this particularly.
The big day is coming up, and Emma (Jayma Mays) is still panicking about her wedding day. We see her anxiety and OCD manifest itself in obsessively clean habits which see her furiously scrubbing everything in the school. Will (Matthew Morrison) doesn’t have time to help her organise everything for the wedding, so she’s left to her own devices.
