'Glee' Recap — Santana Rules The School & We Learn Kurt Was Never Dating Blaine!

Tue, February 8, 2011 10:22pm EDT by 10 Comments

Ummm, Kurt and Blaine were never together? Say what! Meanwhile Santana does what she does best — instigate!

Glee bounced back from their so-so post-Super Bowl spot with a great Valentine’s Day episode that stayed light on the teachers, Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) was a complete no show, and instead focused on the kids. In keeping with the current theme of trying to give every character their own episode we got a whole lot of Santana (Naya Rivera) — and it was AMAZING!

First off, it is hard to imagine a time when Brittany (Heather Morris) and Santana were not regular cast members on the show given how amazing these two are, and we should also mention how gorgeous they looked in this episode. We got meddling and bitchy Santana at her finest for an entire hour and her plot to give Finn (Cory Monteith) and Quinn (Dianna Agron) mono was GENIUS! Has a show or movie ever thought of this idea before? Brilliant!

The biggest shock of the night, season, heck even entire series however, was that Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss) aren’t dating! It seems we, just like sweet, fragile Kurt, had imagined their entire relationship in our minds. And it must be said that the producers have been VERY misleading with this, especially given the magazine covers and appearances these two actors do.

So while we do love Blaine it was somewhat nice to see him publicly embarrassed after breaking our little Kurt’s heart. I kind of enjoy the fact however that there can be two gay men on the show that don’t have to be romantically involved. I am also still unsure how Kurt and Blaine are the only members of The Warblers that are boy crazy — and this is not a slight towards men who sing.

Oh, Finn started a kissing booth. I second Santana’s thought that it wouldn’t be worth the buck. This of course led to his mono as Santana, delightfully immune to the disease given her high school friendliness, swapped spit with the singing QB and he in turn gave it former gal pal Quinn during their auditorium cuddle puddle session. SKANKS!

Musical high point came courtesy of Rachel (Lea Michele) whose rendition of “Firework” blew Katy Perry out of the water. Love Katy, she’s great, but maybe she should learn to stop allowing the show to use her songs as they keep being better than the original. Just saying…

It should also be noted Artie’s (Kevin McHale) “PYT” combined with Mike Chang’s (Harry Shum Jr.) amazing dancing was pretty awesome too.

Finally, there is this whole Puck (Mark Salling) and Lauren (Ashley Fink) situation. It seems to keep skirting the line between cute and offensive. “Fat Bottomed Girls” guys? I mean, really? It would also be nice if they were going to do a storyline like this to not make the basis of Puck’s appeal the simple fact that Lauren didn’t appreciate his oral skills so to speak.

Oh and remember Emma (Jayma Mays)? Ummm, where’s she been?

So what did you think HollywoodLifers? Do you agree Santana was this episode’s MVP?

I loved this episode. I think Rachel ruled the whole show. However, I really want her and Finn to get back together and soon. I just love them together.

I didn’t even notice See wasn’t in the episode until the preview for the next week.

Rachel and Santana made this episode worth it. Santana for the comedy and Rachel for the drama.

The Superbowl episode Rachel brought the cute and funny.

Wow first paragraph is a little snarky towards Jane Lynch..why??? the super-bowl ep wasn’t amazing but it wasn’t down to the fact that Sue had a lot of screentime, she made the episode!!
Loved Santana tonight, but I’m not liking the puck/Lauren thing..too awkward.

Rachel and Santana MVP.

Santana for being the bitch that she is and Rachel for getting her groove back.

Really you thought Kurt and Blaine were dating?

Quinn/Finn can have each other and the acting on Dianna’s part was weak.

But the worst acting award goes to Jenna that Tina break down was embarrassing.

“I am also still unsure how Kurt and Blaine are the only members of The Warblers that are boy crazy — and this is not a slight towards men who sing”. Yes it is. How stupid to believe that only/mostly gay men enjoy singing and choirs. Also nobody thought Blaine and Kirk were dating. The show made it obvious that Kirk had a crush and Blaine was clueless. PYT was great. I wish that Mercedes was more active. She’s been ignored all season.

rachel and santana were the stars of this episode.
santana is the queen bee of the school and she was amazing.
Rachel/Stardom is back, so happy about this.
ps: kurt and blaine were never in a relationship (i don’t get why the reporter of this article think that), they are only friends but kurt is in love with him.

She is hilarious! I’m so glad they’re giving Naya more screentime.
