Sometimes, when she’s watching them bicker at the dinner table or over the television or any of the hundred other times they pick at each other, Carole wonders what it would’ve been like if Finn had returned Kurt’s affections two years ago. Then she has to bite the inside of her cheek to keep from laughing.
The morning he woke up hungover in Kurt’s bed, Carole went to offer Blaine a spare toothbrush from the stockpile and overheard him muttering to himself about how he has to be sure, really sure, and how he’s going to ruin everything. Also about how good Kurt smells. She never told anyone. When Blaine came to Friday night dinner a few weeks later, his first as The Boyfriend, she hugged him extra tightly.
She wouldn’t care if Finn lived at home until he was thirty if that’s how long it took him to find something that made him truly happy. There is no way to tell him this without him taking it badly.
Brad’s wife is a former Playboy Playmate (that’s right, bitches).
He has a stash of snacks in his office for the band guys when ND keep them during lunch or late after school.
Brad doesn’t hate the ND kids. He purposely distances himself because he has to; they come to him with songs about love and heartbreak and desperate attempts to find themselves. He’s watched Rachel and Finn go through the wringer more than once, watched Santana struggle and Kurt flourish and Puck become a decent human being and he can’t let himself get sucked in because they all feel everything too much and he can’t do that, too. But he can play for them. And he always will.
Sugar doesn’t throw money at people so they’ll like her. She does it because she likes them. Her dad is all about power plays and taking advantage and getting ahead but she just likes making people happy. Everyone around her has so many problems that seem so insurmountable that if one of them can be fixed with money? She’s got this.
She prefers ND to The Troubletones. Neither group recognizes her talent and sure, The Troubletones have better choreography, but it was so rigid and she kind of likes the last-minute panic that always seems to be surrounding ND.
She hasn’t told anyone, but she talked to her dad after Sebastian slushied Blaine and she now has a phone number in her purse that she can call to arrange for Sebastian to disappear within 48 hours.
Have you read ALL of my NaBloPoMo entries? Because I’m not sure even *I* read all of them once they were written and shoved out there, and there’s 40somethingthousand words there, and most of them went largely unread, I think.
I read those all in a day when I was sick a few months ago.
1. Puck (Mark Salling) is thisclose to not making the grade and graduating and gets a peek at his future from his father that prompts him to work harder.
2. The mohawked one uses music, naturally, to help him vent his frustrations and … study, getting a solo on Alice Cooper’s “School’s Out” and with the New Directions guys taking on My Fair Lady’s “The Rain in Spain,” both below.
3. Rachel and Kurt audition for NYADA’s Carmen (Goldberg), an intimidating presence and herself a former Broadway star. One decides to take a risk, the other plays it safe.
4. The NYADA hopefuls each have solos — Kurt takes on “Not the Boy Next Door” from The Boy From Oz, while Rachel performs Kelly Clarkson’s “Cry” — which may or may not be their audition songs.
5. The Trouble Tones are back (with Tina!) — and living up to their name, which prompts two performances — Chicago’s “Cell Block Tango” and Florence + the Machine’s “Shake It Out” — both elicit completely different responses.
6. Roz (Nene Leakes) and Sue (Jane Lynch) … agree and work together on something, but that doesn’t stop the barbs between the rivals from flying fast and hilariously furious.
7. There are lots of tears of sadness in the episode — and more than one person will cry
