Will and Sue are in Principal Figgins office. Figgins is despondent over the loss of his headline act for prom (Air Supply). He suggests the lee club sings at prom. Lauren can’t find a dress Mercedes hasn’t been asked. She’s upset that she hasn’t got one. She runs out of the room and feels all sorry for herself.
Blain and Kurt are at dinner, Kurt asks him to prom his last name is apparently “Warbler”. Blain reveals that he got beat up at his junior prom.
Rachel and Mercedes ask Sam out on a three way date to prom. They’re paying him.
Kurt, Tina, Brittany and Lauren are trying on prom dresses. Lauren comes out dressed like big bird. Santana is there looking amazing again. She wants to escort Kurt and Blain to the dance under the guise of the bully whips.
Puck’s planning on spiking the punch. He arranges with Artie to figure it out.
Rachel (who is getting slapped tonight) starts singing … she does a terrible version of:
Jessie St James shows up and sings it too. He’s wearing a hipster skinny-scarf. (d – bag). I assume he’s here to ask her to prom or something.
After the commercials, Finn confronts Rachel about the rumor that she’s going to prom with JSJ. She is totally getting slapped tonight two seasons of annoying … it totally can’t come soon enough.
Next: Karovsky and Santana are making a big show of protecting Kurt’s gayness.
In home-ec, Brittany can’t figure out the difference between eggs with eggs in them and eggs with baby chickens in them. Artie shows up to sing “Isn’t She Lovely”
Even though the song is OK, she still refuses to go to prom with him. Puck reiterates the
Blaine’s hanging out with Finn and Burt’s there (Kurt’s dad). Kurt comes out in a Kilt. Which is absolutely ridiculous because only real men should wear kilts and he’s totally faye. (OK, just kidding he looks great) Anyways, Blaine is against it because it draws too much attention, Burt gives the same caution. I have no idea what they’re on about ’cause kilts are about the manliest thing a guy can wear.
Glee totally makes no sense sometimes.
Kurt’s still being escorted by Dave (the bully whip). Dave breaks down in tears and apologizes for what he did to Kurt. (Really touching scene. (Who wrote tonight’s episode? It’s a little better than normal).
Quinn looks great on prom night, Finn picks her up.
At dinner, Jessie St James starts going on about his new business “show choir consulting”.
At prom Puck, Artie and Sam are singing FRIDAY FRIDAY FRIDAY
This is actually the first time I’ve listened to this one. I know that it got a bad rap for being the worst song of all time … but ti’s really no worse than any of the other soulless pop songs that have come and gone over the years. In fact, it’s a lot better than some of them. I kinda like it.
Rachel (who hasn’t been slapped yet) is on stage singing. Some horrible song called “Jar of Hearts” by Christina Perri from her hit album “Music to Slit Your Wrists to”
Puck says that it’s “go time” on the spike the punch. Artie gets caught. Sue interrogates him.
Back at the prom Blaine Warbler, Tina and Brittany are singing
I know it’s originally by the Black Kids but Kate Nash is way *way* better.
OK OK OK.. here’s their version
During the song, Finn picks a fight with Jessie St James for getting too close to Rachel. (Oooohhh… that’s why Quinn slaps Rachel). Finn gets kicked out of prom. Now time to announce the winner for king…
Winner for King! Karaofsky (remember, the big gay football homophobe?)
The Winner for Queen? Kurt Hummel (oh no!) Kinda saw this coming really… can I take back that bit about this being a better episode than usual? Well … OK actually it’s still a better episode than usual … that’s the worst part. They should actually get Joss Whedon back – that was the only episode that I actually liked Rachel. That’s some seriously good writing.
Back from commercials – Kurt is running out of prom and bawling his eyes out. Hate crime via secret abuse.
Rachel chases after Quinn and:
Kurt decides to go back in there.
There’s a lot of slow piano in these upcoming scenes. Rachel and Quinn have a slow piano scene. Santana and Brittany have a slow piano scene. They all kinda decide to support Kurt. Artie admits that he didn’t spike the punch.
Apparently when Kurt accepts the crown everyone cheers for him… so were they secretly serious about it the whole time or what?
Anyways – Kurt and Karovsky have the first dance as king and queen, but big Dave runs off. Blaine steps in and everyone dances to
Well there was that one god scene earlier… and Rachel got slapped
