  • Some of us think Sam looks better with his clothes on
  • Did Brittany secretly want Blaine to win the class presidency the whole time?

    I’m pretty sure it was Rachel and Brody singing together. Error in your description.

    • http://hypable.com John Thrasher

      Fixed! Thanks for the catch! :)

  • Gary65

    Sam is turning out to be a better therapist than Emma ever was lol

    • Alex

      Lol!!!!!!!

  • Gary65

    As for Rachel’s veganness, i can’t begin to tell you the number of things I did & said that changed when I went to college. Do we actually know why she was vegan? Was it a choice or medically required? Plus, she could have just given some duck to Brody & eaten vegan herself. Kurt’s not vegan & duck will keep in the fridge for a week or so. Most vegans usually cook meat when they’re having guests who aren’t vegan.

    • http://hypable.com John Thrasher

      Yeah I kind of said this too…maybe she was just making it for Brody.

      • Mo

        BUT, she was also eating ice cream with Brody….I think its just a continuity issue…

  • Gary65

    I haven’t listened to the ep yet so I don’t know if anyone caught this but did anyone find it hilarious that My Huckleberry Friend was playing in the background of the Brochel kiss? And then, Huckleberry Finn references abound, in walks Finn. I nearly died xD

    • NatalieFisher

      We definitely noticed.

    OH MY GOD YOU GUYS.

    *dies*

    • http://twitter.com/MaireadNguyen Mairead Nguyen

      congrats!!! You did an amazing job on the video!

    • http://twitter.com/StarkidSims Simone

      congrrattsss!!!! hope you have a great time recording :D

    SJP was in Annie years ago when it was on Broadway I think she was on the touring show but she was defiantly Annie. Which is why I think they chose You’re Never Fully Dressed. :)

    • http://hypable.com John Thrasher

      I knew this and completely forgot to bring it up!

  • http://twitter.com/potterfan92 Raina

    About the shipping thing, Blam would be interesting hmm… As for me I’ve been into Faberry hardcore for the past several months.

  • http://twitter.com/potterfan92 Raina

    This is my last comment I swear. I think the question that should be asked by Blaine next episode is “Kurt what have you really done for me?” Listening to Natalie dissect the relationship of Klaine really hopes that Kurt answers and see if they stay together or breakup. Well great episode guys!!

    • Mitchel Clow

      Thanks for listening and all of the great feedback!

  • http://twitter.com/Dillon_Mays Dillon Mays

    As for friends: Mercedes and Artie, Joe and everyone nix Quinn, Puck and Brittany.

    • NatalieFisher

      If you listen carefully, you will notice I mentioned that I was talking about people who were legit friends – not just in the club together, but people who had personal scenes together and were portrayed as close friends. Obviously all the club members are friends to an extent, but we meant people who were good friends who had plotlines together, like Blam and Hummelberry… except straight boys and girls.

      • http://twitter.com/Dillon_Mays Dillon Mays

        Okay. Well it’s glee. Everyone has to date someone in the club at some point.

        • NatalieFisher

          No. They really do NOT.

          • http://twitter.com/Dillon_Mays Dillon Mays

            I’m sorry, what I meant to say was that they think they do. Well most of them.

  • http://twitter.com/Dillon_Mays Dillon Mays

    Also, what if the picture on Kurt’s phone was foreshadowing of Kurt declining Blaine in that scene. Kind of foreshadowing if you look at it that way.

  • Alex

    @JohnThrasher:disqus I finally told Grace that I love her and she returns the feelings…. We’re now dating….. I’m even taking her to homecoming since she ditched the guy and is letting me take her…. The guy already has another date…. She’s heading over to my house in a few for the both of us to tell my family that we’re dating….. I’m SO happy to finally be able to express my feelings for her and not have to hide them inside. I’ve known her for 10+ years now and She’s my FIRST and ONLY love…. I feel in love with her the moment I first laid eyes on her when I was 4….. Now we’re both 14….I realized that I have feelings for her in Feburary…
    Thanks,
    Alex<3<3

    • http://hypable.com John Thrasher

      Alex I am so happy that you found peace with all of this! Congrats on everything! :)

      • Alex

        Thanks for all of the support……

    • Cassie-Lee

      That is so beautiful!! I wish you both the best of luck xoxo <3

  • Alex

    I just read a spoiler just a few minutes ago…. Why in the H-E-L-L would Finn shoot himself in an Army FlashBack… Also Why would Santana get hit on by another girl…. I swear if Brittana breaks up then that would be the death of me and my Girlfriend…
    Here’s the link for the spoilers: http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/glee/images/d/d1/TBU_spoilers.jpg

    • RumbleroarLuna

      That’s… luckily the episode’s only in a week. So we’ll know what happens.

    • NatalieFisher

      I’ve seen these spoilers a couple weeks ago. I know John was trying to avoid them though.

    • http://hypable.com John Thrasher

      Yeah just looked at this for the first time, which supports my theory all along. Why wouldn’t Santana get hit on by a girl?

    • Cassie-Lee

      If Finn shoots himself because Rachel broke up with him or something like that i am 250% done with this show.

  • RumbleroarLuna

    Personally I think maybe Brittany said the thing about no vacations because a) she’s been there four years already, she’s attached and what’s another extra half-year? and b) she misses Santana and being at school all the time might take her mind off it (although it might make it worse, but she spent so much time with San there maybe it comforts her or something)​. It’s also of course entirely plausible that she let Blaine win.Inboxx

  • Michael

    Loved this episode and all the shipping and fandom talk! I have to say regarding the breakup talk, I love Klaine. I have since Blaine joined the show, but I can’t help but completely agree with you guys. Somewhere in season 3, canon Klaine became tainted to me. Kurt has always been my favorite character, but Blaine is slowly taking his spot. He hasn’t been a very good boyfriend in my opinion, whether he’s doing ti on purpose or not. And it was more obvious than ever in this episode. I still love them in fanon and I do want them to be together in the end, but Klaine really really needs a break.
    And if/when they do break up I would love if Sebastian showed up in New York and he and Kurt had a love/hate romantic thing because he would definitely put Kurt in his place, like Natalie suggested he needs. It won’t happen but I just think it’d be a really interesting dynamic. Blam would be super cute too, but if Sam turned out to be gay after all this time, i would personally be annoyed because of the initial Kurt/Sam relationship that could have been. Either way I love them as Friends. Anyway, loved the episode! Really good analysis this week!

    • Mitchel Clow

      Thanks for the sweet responses =]

  • Vania

    if ryan murphy really DO listen to glee chat, i hope he will fix blaine’s hair and not dump his head on a bucket just like natalie said ;)

  • Vanj203

    Great job, guys! Since you asked about her, Marley was in a few scenes although she had no dialogue this ep. During Blaine’s music montage she walked up next to him, got his attention, and said “Hi.” Next, she was in the same classroom with Blaine and Brittany when Sue was announcing the winner. She was also the one at the Breadstix party who gave Blaine a big hug and said “Congratulations” as he was walking over to have his talk with Artie. She’s being portrayed as someone who really wants to fit in with the Glee Club members, and is especially attentive to the ones who have been welcoming to her – Blaine in particular. Oh, and I LOVE Blam! By the way, not only did Sam give Blaine direction on his bow tie that Kurt couldn’t be bothered to do, but Sam’s into comic book superheros, which appears to be something that Blaine likes too!

    You mentioned that Moon River played in this episode, and that Andy Williams recently passed away. You said that this was the second time this has happened (the first being Whitney). And I want to add a little asterisk to this as well: When Glee did the Saturday Night Fever tribute episode, Bee Gees member Robin Gibb went into a coma some time in the days leading up to that episode (with the connection being that the Bee Gees are heavily featured on the SNF soundtrack). And unfortunately, he died the following month.

  • Karoline

    I just wanted to let you know that I thought this was a fantastic episode, one of the best you’ve done. :) I loved the people you had on and I loved when you (mainly Natalie) also delved a little into the fandom and fandom meta sidde of things.

    As for Glee itself I am really loving the season so far! :)

  • caroline.taylor078

    I have to agree on Blaines bowties, I hope they go for good, as for the gel I agree with Natalie when he was a Warbler he looked so good but his style since he came to New Directions has been DREADFUL! I do not want them to have Darrens curly hair though and the Prom hair was quite frankly scary. He looked so good in his first episode doing Teenage Dream.

  • Lucija

    What was the name of that site where you can actually see Kurt’s resume?

  • http://twitter.com/chanteyrose Jessica Humphrey

    As much as it stung to watch things continue to unravel between Kurt and Blaine, I’m incredibly glad that they’re addressing this. Usually Glee just barrels past break-ups and just “announces” the end of a pairing, and we don’t see the process. This happens ALL THE TIME in relationships, especially at that age/when one person goes away and the other stays behind. Couples drift away for one reason or another and sometimes they reconcile. Very often they both do stupid things and not communicate with one another, ultimately reinforcing the problems and not fixing what’s been unequal. This is one more step towards the general public recognizing and acknowledging that gay relationships aren’t any different from heterosexual ones. I appreciate that. (I’m just glad I bought a new box of tissues in time)

    Honestly, there wasn’t much else in the episode that felt worthy of comment. Isabelle is cute, but I’m wary of the insecure, buddy-buddy dynamic with Kurt. It seemed a little too soon for that kind of heart-to-heart as his boss, but at least he’s starting to find a place in NYC.

    Just about everything else I have to say was enthusiastically espoused in the recap. By the way, I love the in-depth character analysis you guys do. It’s the closest I get to revisiting plot inconsistencies as well as head-canon conversation IRL. Special shout-out to Natalie who seems to read my mind about 90% of the time. :)

  • lisa

    ok i thought the Lena Dunham comment was insulting but I guess the writers are portraying those “means girls” as so shallow…that they cannot see beyond the outside. I am in awe of Lena Dunhams wit and intellegence. By the way the star of Ryan Murphy’s The New Normal Andrew Rannells was also in Girls. (Fun Fact!) Love the podcast!

  • Cassie-Lee

    You officially have converted me from Klaine to Blam. Congrats Natalie!
