Tuesday’s Glee found NYC’s finest having to choose between their careers and their relationships — and, unfortunately, not everyone made the right decision. With only two episodes left this season, the stage is set for several major shifts in the Glee universe, including a potentially devastating split.
STAR WARS | Rachel totally gave into the whole “if you give a mouse a cookie” theory this week when a Fox executive (Community‘s Jim Rash) invited her to ditch Funny Girl for a pilot audition in Los Angeles. Though her audition was about as tragic as the show itself – an insane combination of Grey’s Anatomy, Game of Thrones and Guardians of the Galaxy that I would totally watch – Mr. Fox Executive offered her a development deal, explaining that the network would create a show around Rachel! And it’s a good thing, too, because Sidney isn’t exactly thrilled after she lied to him; no good conversation ends with, “Get the hell out of my office.”
(Side note: Given the reports about Naya Rivera being fired after feuding with Lea Michele, how ironic was their characters’ storyline this week? Not only did Santana go out of the way to save Rachel’s job, but she literally proclaimed, “No one is getting fired!”)
BLAINE-Y AND JUNE | Kurt and Blaine have faced countless obstacles since moving to NYC, but who’d have thought their biggest would come in the form of an 80-year-old movie star? Kurt nearly gleeked himself when he found out he’d get to perform for legendary socialite June Dolloway — played by Shirley MacLaine, who also appears to be a Directioner — but sadly, she only has eyes (and ears) for Blaine. She invited him to a swanky benefit for an impromptu performance of “Piece Of My Heart,” and for her encore, she insisted that Blaine break off his engagement from Kurt. He obviously didn’t relay that part of the story to his fiance, but it’s only a matter of time before this all hits the fan.
HOW MERCEDES GOT HER GROOVE BACK | Fearing her new album lacks inspiration, Mercedes turned to her old pal(?) Santana to help make musical “magic,” and it turns out all she needed was a healthy dose of “That Thing” to get the juices flowing again. Unfortunately, Mercedes’ producers weren’t feeling Santana’s vibe – they suggested she record with someone like “Carly” [Rae Jepsen?!] instead — but Miss Jones insisted Santana sign a contract anyway.
