‘Glee’ Recap: The Most Confusing “Sadie Hawkins” Episode Moments!
We’re all about the ridiculousness of Glee — heck, that’s what the show runs on — but we’re just the slightest bit confused about the directions the New Directions took on last night’s “Sadie Hawkins” episode after where we left off around Christmas. So… Blaine and Kurt aren’t together anymore? Tina and Mike aren’t giving their love another try? Like we said, confused. But what did you think? We’ll take you through the most complicated moments from the ep, then you tell us your thoughts on any (or all) of ’em in the comments or on our Glee message board!
Last time we saw Cohen-Chang-Chang together, the former couple agreed to give a long-distance relationship a shot. Then out of nowhere, Tina develops a crush on Blaine and comes up with the idea of a Sadie Hawkins dance (where girls ask guys) at McKinley. She then sings “I Don’t Know How to Love Him” to express to Blaine that she wants to attend with him as her date.
The issue: Uhh… Blaine’s gay (though, he ultimately ends up at the dance with Tina, attending as “best friends”). Plus he has feelings for someone else, which brings us to our next point…
Blaine has the hots for Sam. According to Tina, Blaine’s love for Kurt had to go somewhere, so he’s developing feelings for — what? The closest thing?
The issue: Sam’s with Brittany. They even “got married!” And he’s been with Mercedes and Santana and Quinn before her, so it’s improbable that he would reciprocate Blaine’s affections. (Though, it’s Glee; everyone falls for everyone at some point.)
Sam thinks the Warblers cheated at Sectionals. (They did, but where would he get the idea? Even if the all-male group didn’t cheat, New Directions still would’ve lost because of Marley’s dizzy spell.)
He finds proof by placing the Warblers’ faces side-by-side and notices that each of its members developed more muscles over the last few months, plus an incriminating video of lead Warbler Hunter yelling at a coffee shop leads Sam to believe that they’re all taking steroids. Getting to the point, if ND can prove this, then Dalton boys would be disqualified and New Directions can move forward in competition.
The issue: Proving it. Fortunately enough, one of Blaine’s old friends from the Warblers may be willing to rat out his testosterone-injected teammates.
Marley asks Jake to Sadie Hawkins, which he politely concedes to. However, Kitty’s always on the prowl, and wants Jake just because Marley does. She offers Jake basc an all-access pass to… well, her, and reminds him that he won’t get past kisses when it comes to Marley. When Jake brings up the “dilemma” with brother Puck, the older Puckerman insists that he stay with Marley and leave Kitty behind.
The issue: Kitty asks Puck to Sadie Hawkins, so she’ll stay away from Jake. At the end of the ep, we find the two slinking away to do the deed in one of their cars. Oh, and did we mention she’s underage?
Kurt sets his sights on a new guy. Now that he’s attending his dream school, has no friends besides Rachel and is also on the market again, he endeavors to find a place of solace. He discovers a show choir known as Adam’s Apples with newbie Oliver Kieran-Jones as its leading man, which he immediately takes to. (The group’s intro song: “Baby Got Back” — acoustic!)
The issue: The Adam’s Apples are at the bottom of the social chain at NYADA according to Rachel.
