Glee: The McKinley High football team has actually gotten better and is going to the championships. But when the football players slushied Artie nasty, Coach Beiste and Will decided to finally get involved in the war that took out Kurt. Will and the Coach decided to force the football guys to join Glee club for one week, the penalty for noncooperation being an ousting from the team and the big game. The Glee Club and the team were slated to perform a mash-up of Thriller and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ “Heads Will Roll” during halftime. This is because the Cheerios had a championship of their own to get to.
The Cheerios championship forced Brittany, Santana, and Quinn to choose between cheerleading and Glee. After some warbling, they chose Glee. Sue’s plan to shoot Brittany out of a canon to win the competition helped them make the decision. She could have died. So Sue lost her National Title and got called a loser by Katie Couric in a post-competition interview. Oh the shame…
The football players got a taste of their own medicine when they were mocked for being in Glee and slushied by the school’s hockey team. The football players dropped out, but the Glee guys were still able to play, because Tina, Rachel, a hilarious Lauren, and Mercedes stepped up so that the football team could have the minimum number of players required. Tina even made a touchdown. Puck rallied the football players before halftime, and Finn got the cheerleaders back, and even Karofsky joined in on the halftime number. They even won the football game. Then Karofsky decided to start being a jerk again and did not stay in the glee club.
We got a glimpse of a Dalton Warblers rehearsal (“Bills Bills Bills” by Destiny’s Child), and Rachel sang “Need You Now” with Puck to demonstrate what Glee does to the football players. “She’s Not There” was the number everyone used to warm-up for the halftime show. The best use of that song is still in Kill Bill. Tarantino makes a mean soundtrack. Also, Quinn kissed Finn. That Quinn is SUCH a cheater!!!!

Fringe: Ok, Here’s all you need to know about this episode. We found out that whoever Peter chooses, our Olivia or Fauxlivia, will determine which universe survives and which one dies. And we aren’t so sure it will be our universe, because a mind-reading guy let Olivia know that Peter still has feelings for Fauxlivia. We really feel for real Olivia. Her theory is that of course Peter fell for the other Olivia, because Fauxlivia is just like Olivia, only not damaged. If someone came along who was an unhurt, undamaged version of you (who never went through all the crud that messed your head up) and the man you loved got with her, how heartbroken would you be? UGH.
