Last night, Glee proved that romance is dead or at least on this show. “I Do” might’ve been the most sexually-charged episode of the entire series. There were all types of hookups between old and new lovers, strangers and girlfriends. At some point, we thought we were watching Gossip Girl.

  • Director: Brad Falchuk
  • Writer: Ian Brennan
  • Cast: Chris Colfer, Kevin McHale, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Heather Morris, Amber Riley, Naya Rivera, Jenna Ushkowitz, Mark Salling, Matthew Morrison, Ashley Fink, Chord Overstreet, Harry Shum, Jr., Cheyenne, Darren Criss, Jayma Mays, Jane Lynch, Dean Geyer, Melissa Benoist

Episode Title: “I Do”

Will and Emma prepare for their wedding, which involves members of New Directions, both past and present. The impending nuptials stimulate romance for everyone involved.

The Good:

  • Finn’s Speech: High on liquid courage, Finn poured out all his thoughts out to Rachel. He confidently told her that they belong together, while playing ‘She loves me… she loves me not’ with some daisy petals. We’re not usually attracted to him. He’s whiny and insecure. But last night, he was a different person. He was someone we could get used to. Everything about him just screamed sexy!
  • Reunion: All the glee kids, minus Mike Chang, came to Lima to celebrate Mr. Schue’s wedding. It was nice to see everyone together, performing duets and hanging out like old times.

Best Lines:

  • “It is a Carrot Top convention.” –Santana
  • “I am clearly the hottest bitch in this lousy joint, but I’m stuck here sitting with you.” –Santana
  • “Andrew Garfield is nerdy hot, you are Stephen Hawking’s younger brother.” –Betty
  • “Did you Vapo-rape my ex-boyfriend?”–Kurt

The So-So:

  • Runaway Bride: This whole Runaway Bride ordeal stinks. Right before she’s about to marry Will, Emma freaks out, gets on a taxi and leaves. After everything they’ve gone through, she left him at the altar! We’re hoping this means they’ll break up for good because we’re tired of their relationship. This deal should’ve been sealed long ago.
  • The Santana and Quinn Experiment: There were a lot of hookups last night, but the most shocking was Santana and Quinn. They get really drunk and go into a hotel room together. We don’t know how to feel about this, mainly because we don’t buy Quinn as a lesbian. But who knows? She has had horrible experiences with men.
  • No Mike Chang: Why wasn’t Mike Chang invited to the wedding? That’s just messed up.
  • Pregnancy Cliffhanger: So Rachel might or might not be pregnant. This can’t be good for anybody. We don’t even think she knows who the dad is. Yikes!

The Music:

  • “You’re All I Need To Get By,” Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell – Marley and Jake perform a romantic duet, which was actually orchestrated by Ryder. The only neat thing about it is that the boys also perform, wearing red tuxes. 
  • “Getting Married Today,” Company – We rarely get to hear Emma sing, but she’s actually quite talented. Even though Mecedes was belting out the choir parts with her powerful voice, Emma’s fast-talking lyrics were the best part.
  • “Just Can’t Get Enough,” Depeche Mode– Kurt and Blaine perform together, back-to-back.
  • “We’ve Got Tonite,” Bob Seger – Finn and Rachel sing a duet, and prove they still have a lot of chemistry.
  • “Anything Could Happen,” Ellie Goulding– Marley leads the glee kids in this bouncy and uplifting number.

Overall:

“I Do” was filled with nice reunions, but the hookups were distracting. We’re mainly concerned about Santana and Quinn, because we don’t want to see their friendship ruined by rumors and scandal. We also didn’t enjoy seeing Mr. Schue alone at the altar. He seriously needs to re-evaluate his life and get a new woman, don’t you think?

Rating: 6.5/10
