We’ve had a looong break from Glee and now they’re back with a new episode! And only 4 short years later!
After the dismal Christmas special that left a bad taste in everyone’s mouth and proved that Matthew Morrison can’t be trusted behind a camera, you would think they would really give an honest American effort to pulling themselves up by their bootstraps and starting 2012 out right.
I’m here to tell you nope.
Every episode has to have a theme and this one’s theme is proposals. And boyfriends. And special needs people needing love too. I guess the theme is love. All you need is love and all I need is Mr. Shu to not make this episode about his creepy romance with Miss Pillsbury.
I guess dreams don’t come true. The episode is dedicated to the Shu-meister assigning the kids with the best way for him to propose to his OCD princess. It’s not your job to think of a way to tell the cray-cray woman you love that you want to be with her forever. Let’s just let inexperienced teens who don’t know what love is, break up on weeks ending in an odd number and get back together on weeks ending in an even number how to figure out how to propose to your beloved mess, shall we?
To further illustrate how incompetent these kids are at love and how you probably SHOULDN’T be asking them for romantic advice, Finn starts out the episode by saying he’s going to join the military and be a hero just like his daddy was and then ends the episode **SPOILER ALERT** by proposing to Rachel Berry.
So Mr. Shu, if you are going to put your faith in THESE children, you deserve everything you get.
