This week's blatant theme of the week - alcohol is bad! Not quite a "super special" episode, but in Glee land, it came close. I did like that they only had four songs. I know I say that every single time they have less than five, but seriously, sometimes they have six, and that's just too many.
For Alcohol Awareness Week, Figgins tasked the glee club with coming up with something for an assembly at the end of the week. This somehow led them to suddenly desire having a party thanks to Rachel's dads being out of town, where they all got really drunk, which led to a hot kiss between Rachel and Blaine... and can I just say? Those two have more chemistry than Rachel and Finn. Am I alone in thinking that? Their duet was kind of great, too. Rachel decided she wanted to try and take the relationship further, and asked Blaine out on a date. He agree, suddenly unsure of whether he was actually gay or not, since he'd never really had a boyfriend either. Kurt freaks out about it, as he tends to do a lot lately. In the end, when Rachel kisses him while they're both sober, Blaine decides that he really is gay, so it was only a brief flirtation with the ladies.
Meanwhile, Beiste told Will that he really needed to de-stress and relax after everything that's been going on in his life lately. She took him to Rosalita's Roadhouse, a honky tonk bar, and he got totally wasted. He ended up drunk dialing Emma, or so he thought. I think we all knew as soon as Sue's name showed up on his phone that he would accidentally dial her. But that didn't stop her from doing the obvious and playing the message over the speaker phone for the entire school to hear. The dangers of drunk dialing, to be sure.
And what happened at the big assembly? The kids decided to perform a Ke$ha song, but ended up getting sick in the middle of it thanks to all of the drinking they'd been doing. Figgins thinks it was all acting on their part, and congratulates them on a job well done, because the kids in school have stopped showing up drunk. I don't know if school is different now, but I hardly ever recall seeing people drunk at school. This comes as a surprise to absolutely no one, I'm sure.
In the end, Will gets the club to agree to sign a pact to stop drinking, at least until they are done with Nationals.
There was also a whole bit about Burt getting upset with Kurt for letting Blaine stay the night without his permission, which Kurt got all pissy about. Kurt has become rather unlikable lately, and so has Finn for that matter. When he told a drunk Rachel that she was being needy and annoying at the party? Jeez. Someone deflate that huge head of his already.
