Finn has signed up for a God Squad Valentine’s Day song for Rachel, because nothing says “I love you” to your Jewish girlfriend like being serenaded by a Christian fundraising organization, unless it’s giving your girlfriend meat because you forgot she’s a vegan.
LOL (via agletthatiscracked)
So, was it enough to have Rachel’s gay dads, our two “teen lesbians,” sad panda Kurt and tormented Dave Karofsky respresent for the queers in this episode? It was not, because guess who walks in the door of Breadstix next? Blaine. Wearing a heart-shaped red velvet eye patch that he tears off to sing a song dedicated to all the lovers in the room. And as Brittany, Rachel, Mercedes, and some of the others join him on the stage, he launches into the B-52’s “Love Shack.” Then he dances off the stage and lures Kurt into singing with him, arms draped over each other’s shoulders and hips pumping while they sing into their matching red sequined mics.
Kurt had discovered an unfortunate fact about his secret admirer: It wasn’t Blaine, it was a gorilla! Kidding, that would have been random and ludicrous. Actually it was Dave Karofsky, dressed in that gorilla suit, suddenly proclaiming that he loved Kurt and wanted to be with him. Which was far more random and ludicrous.
Entertainment Weekly Glee Recap (x)
Dear Glee producers,
Fans finally got to meet Mr. and Mr. Berry on Tuesday’s episode, and we have to ask: is it too soon to send them valentines?
Hiram and Leroy Berry, played by Jeff Goldblumand Brian Stokes Mitchell, arrived the only way men who raised gold star-loving, solo-hogging Rachel Berry would: on a rolling piano while singing “Chapel of Love.” What’s not to like? Seamless chemistry, witty back-and-forth about ice-fishing with Tony Danza (it was only one dream!) and Jennifer Hudson’s vocal rolls (that’s why she got kicked off of American Idol, after all)… swoon.
Even when it looked like the Berrys were really super gung-ho to marry off their teenager, Papa Berrys revealed their true intentions. Of course they want to break up Finchel! Here Finn, take a look at what married life — and Rachel’s preposterous beauty regimen — really means. A slightly devious and completely controlling plan… hmmm, sounds just like Rachel! Awww! Rachel’s backstory is finally coming together!
But the episode begged the question: Why haven’t we met them sooner? Rachel finding her real birth mother, Shelby, back in Season 1 was a huge storyline, yet Hiram and Leroy were nowhere to be seen. Now that Rachel’s time as a McKinley High student is running out faster than you can say Liza, can we please see more of the Berrys?
We know Glee already has plenty of other storylines and characters to service, but as graduation and her May nuptials draw near, Rachel is going to need to lean on her dads for emotional support and guidance, right? And, aside from those few bars of “You’re the Top,” Goldblum and Mitchell haven’t even gotten a chance to show off their Broadway pipes.
Come on, Glee producers. Make it happen. The Berrys are the funniest thing to happen to the showsince Brittany’s last zinger back in Episode 6.
What did you think of tonight’s episode? Do you think Rachel’s dads are doing the right thing by lying to their baby? Do you agree with Mercedes’ tough decision? Who really believes that Rory is going back to Ireland? Sound off below!
I will take all of the Berry dads that I can get.
“Love Shack” — Blaine, Mercedes, Rachel, Brittany, Santana and KurtBlaine recovered from that vicious rock-salt slushie attack just in time to lead everyone in a rousing B-52s cover, reminding us that “Glee” is always 10 times better when Darren Criss shows up and starts bebopping all over the place. This number also demonstrated that Chris Colfer is capable of channeling both Fred Schneider and Cindy Wilson, and that the most entertaining all-company performances on “Glee” are the ones where it’s clear how much fun everyone had during filming. That was certainly clear here. Grade: A.

Darren Criss makes everything better. True fucking facts. :-D
It’s not an absurd plot twist that Karofsky would harbor feelings for Kurt—after all, it was Kurt who first made Karofsky challenge his own sexuality. But it’s absurd that Karofsky would think secret messages delivered in a gorilla outfit and an out-of-the-blue admission of his love would sway Kurt from Blaine. The whole thing came across as vaguely stalker-ish on Karofsky’s part, and contrived on the part of the show.

Bless you, EW, for that truth.
