Glee 4×05: The Role You Were Born To Play

Mike, Mercedes and Finn-Hudson-80s-rock-songs. They all return!

1. What just happened?!
Artie asks Finn to co-direct the school musical with him. Finn is certain on the answer no, but a gentle “or else I’ll quit too and there’ll be no musical” sure does help. Although Finn remains quite hesitant and lost in the beginning, after Mike and Mercedes return (woop woop!) he seems to find himself in the role of a leader.

And where there’s a school play, there are auditions… WMH’s students are full of it. Wade ‘Unique’ Adams struggles, since he/she really wants to play the role of Rizzo. Sue Sylvester wouldn’t be Sue Sylvester is she didn’t try to jeopardize this plan. Ryder and Marley are up for the role of Danny and Sandy. Kitty and Jake declare the battle of the glee newsies. Who will get cast?

Will and Emma encounter a problem. Emma does not feel like setting aside her own life and dreams for Will’s. Then she does. Then she doesn’t. It ends with Will asking Finn a question.

2. What was the most memorable quote or dialog this episode?
– Artie: “Why do I always feel so at home in a tire shop? That was a joke.”
– Sam explaining why he’s got his heart set on the role of Kenickie: “Grease Lightning is my cell phone ring tone and I’ve been knocked out by a car door before so I’m looking forward to recreating the reality of that moment on stage.”

Especially mean cheerio Kitty delivers her lines very credible. I’m starting to dislike Kitty, which is actually nothing more than a compliment for Becca Tobin.
– Kitty: “Oh right Marley. Like the dead dog movie.”
– Kitty: “By the way Ryder, you should know about this one’s gene pull. She’s only got a month or two before she starts ballooning to her natural weight of 5000 pounds and starts writing her memoir ’50 shades of gravy’”

3. Cuteness vs. Useless
+ I’m still, and probably always will be, a sucker for Grease music. (Yes I did the hand jive dance in front of my screen)
+ Poor, poor Blaine! Darren Criss getting misty equals hearts melting.
+ I kinda liked the bestie-moment between Marly and Wade/Unique this week. Their rendition of Pink’s Blow Me (One Last Kiss) popped of the screen.
+/- Honestly, Blake wasn’t my favorite on The Glee Project and I’m still not entirely convinced by his character Ryder. But hey, at least they literally spoke out the fact he’s supposed to be the new Finn.
+/- Will, Emma and their relationship problem…ZzzzzZzzzzZ. Thankfully it did lead to an interesting turning point for the following weeks.

4. Rate it! (on a scale from 0 to 10)
I’m hoping for a peek at New York again next week, but I also liked this old fashioned Glee episode: 7,5!

What did you think of this week’s episode?
