My Thoughts: The Power of Madonna

As with last week, I wanted to go ahead and write a post about the latest episode of Glee.

I was truly blown away by this episode, and I believe it lived up to all the hype and adoration that it received. I do think it may have become my first episode of Glee so far! The elaborate numbers, the hilarious one liners, the crazy plot twists, it was all so amazing!

From here on out, I will be discussing episode spoilers. So, if you haven’t seen it, look away.

The biggest plot twist of the night? Finn losing his virginity to Santana. I really couldn’t believe that he would do that, no matter how mad he was at Rachel. What bugged me the most was that, after chastising Rachel for lying about her relationship with Jesse, he had the nerve to lie to her about sleeping with Santana. I really don’t like seeing my Rachel hurt, and I know when she finds that out it will break her heart. Let’s just hope there’s more to the story than we originally thought.

The musical numbers were all so spot on, and I’m not even that big of a Madonna fan. My favorite of the night was Borderline/Open Your Heart duet performed by Finn and Rachel. I loved the running through the hallways and the library singing, and all the people in various Madonna outfits in the background. Of course Vogue was amazing, Jane Lynch can truly do anything. Express Yourself was an excellent song starter to the episode and it really gave the show a start on a high note.

I’m glad we finally got to learn a little bit more about Sue, as well as why she’s always giving Will hell over his hair: She’s jealous. It’s good that we can finally understand just what her motivation is for hating on it constantly.

The Artie/Tina stuff was so funny! Tina’s speech in the hallway about being a woman to Artie was great! I even loved their kiss at the end, cementing them as a couple. It was very cute!

As much as I didn’t like Santana taking Finn’s virginity, I really liked the Like A Virgin scene. Although, was it just me or was that just a little raunchy for Glee?

Jesse joining New Directions wasn’t something I saw coming at all. I hope he isn’t really using Rachel though, like the previous episode made it seem. I wonder how the others are going to act now that he’s a fulltime member. I have a feeling it won’t be good.

Like A Prayer was an amazing end to the episode, where the whole group came together to perform another spectacular number.

All in all, this was one of the, if not THE best episodes of Glee I have ever seen. I’ll be watching it again on Friday at 9PM EST on FOX, as it will be playing again for those who missed the last few minutes due to American Idol running over.

  1. I actually thought it was a little overhyped, so I was a tad disappointed with it overall. However, in parts, it was AMAZING. Best line was when Santana was telling Finn how Rachel really was dating Jesse and how when she was talking about it, she nearly “sprayed all over the room” (or something like that.) That line…it made my LIFE.

  2. I’m not that big of a Madonna fan either… the episode was much better than I expected. I, too, think Like a Virgin was a little raunchy. My two favorite songs were Like a Prayer and Borderline/Open Your Heart. I’m not sure how I feel about Jesse Joining glee. It still seems like a set up to me. Hopefully next week will change that perspective. My favorite quote was when Brittany asked if Jesse was Schue’s son. hahaha. I can’t wait until more episodes… and tomorrow night.

    This RP group makes my day everyday. It always makes me smile. 🙂 🙂

  3. Definitely up there with the favourites, alongside ‘Wheels’…it may even be better than! Completely unexpected as I am not really a fan of Madonna at all!

    Best number was ‘Express Yourself’ I think. Outfits and choreography were simple but amazing – they really did look like they enjoyed themselves. Followed closely by ‘Like A Virgin.’ Santana has a GREAT voice! I hope she gets more solos!

    Surprises – Finn losing his virginity to Santana. I really thought it would have been Emma to Will…
    And although I knew this would happen in advance – Mercedes and Kurt joining the Cheerios. Sue is getting more devious by the episode.

    Best line….get back to me. I think I’ll have to watch again 🙂 Although Mercedes’ line about the unfairness of her and Kurt not getting solos & about her being ignored until she’s allowed to “wail” at the end of every song was very good & unfortunately quite true!

  4. Great episode, but I really disliked Finn losing his virginity to Santana. I didn’t even think about how hypocritical it was of him to hide that from Rachel, but it’s a good point. At least he said he felt nothing, which shows that he truly cares for Rachel.

    Brittany is hilarious, looking forward to hear more of what she says.
