‘Glee’ Recap: What Went Down After Sectionals on “Swan Song”
Based on the previews, it was pretty clear that New Directions lost after Marley fainted at Sectionals during “Thanksgiving.” We just didn’t think the glee club would go down without a fight… but it did. So, for the first time in the history of Glee, ND was out after just one competition — for the entire season! What now? We’ll give you the play-by-play of last night’s “Swan Song” events, then make sure to join the conversation on our Glee message board!
New Directions loses Sectionals; Marley blames herself. As well she should. And Kitty, for that matter. Though, they performed “Gangnam Style” as their big number, so…
Everyone joins every other club. Blaine and Tina join the Cheerios; Artie joins the marching band; Ryder and Jake join the basketball team; Unique joins the hockey team; Joe joins the interfaith paintball team… For a school that seemingly can’t afford anything, it sure has a lot of extra-curricular (and WTF-status) activities.
Sam and Brittany give dating a try. Let’s make sure we got this right. First, Sam and Santana hooked up for a few episodes. Then, him and Mercedes had a fling, while Santana and Brittany started a relationship. All of them were “in love” at one point, but now, Sam and Brittany are into each other. Oh, high school…
Rachel’s invited to the NYADA Winter Showcase — and wins! Only one freshman was invited in the past seven years. Yet Rachel, who was shot down by Carmen Tibideaux after she choked during her audition, not only receives an invitation, but takes home the grand prize!
Kurt is accepted into NYADA. After grabbing Carmen’s attention once more, Kurt is allowed another chance at his dream school. So, after Rachel gives a heart-stopping performance at the Winter Showcase, Kurt belts out Company‘s “Being Alive” to show his true depth. And gets in!
