Glee Review: "Prom Queen"

by at . Comments

God save the Queen. Queen Kurt, of course.

Best prom ever? The votes are still being tallied, but I thought it definitely should be ranked as one of the best high school dance episodes in television history. "Prom Queen" was right up there with the Spring Dance in season one of Beverly Hills 90210 where Brenda lost her virginity, and the prom in season two of Saved by the Bell where Kelly's dad lost his job.

Prom Queen Picture

Sue was back and wearing Spanx. Who knew? Loved how she told "Butt Chin" that the club should apologize to America for their rendition of "Run Joey Run." Great way for the writers to poke fun at themselves and address their critics at the same time.

Jesse totally outshined Rachel on "Rolling in the Deep," but it was a great scene either way. I'm not so sure how psyched I am to have him back on the show, however. He's nothing but trouble, as we saw in the scenes for next week's episode.  

Did anyone else find it hard to believe it took that many shoves before Finn took a swing at him? 

A brief but good scene with Burt and the boys before the big night. His line about how he wanted Kurt to be himself but practical at the same time was well meant. Finn's line about Kurt's suit looking like gay Braveheart was epic. 

Karofsky's apology was as amazing as Quinn's dress. It was very touching how he was adamant about Kurt waiting for him after class so he could protect him. 

I thought the music at prom was second to none. As was the face Santana made when she saw another girl wearing the same dress as her. What was with the guy wearing the Bluetooth in his ear, though? 

My heart sank when I realized Kurt's nomination wasn't done in good spirits, but when Blaine asked him to dance after Karofsky bailed, my fists went up in triumph. Full chills. 

There were a ton of memorable quotes on this night to remember, but the king's crown had to go to Puck for "Torah Torah Torah, it's go time!" As for Queen of the Quotes, I thought Santana had a number of contenders but the one about bailing in New York to live in a lesbian colony - or Tribeca - clinched it. 

Only two episodes left this season. I can't believe it.

Ok I loved this episode and yes it was amazing how it turned out, but i wanted to know more on that fight with jesse and finn. I mean come on what happened after they left the dance?! And the whole Quinn and Rachel slap scene utter waste! I mean Quinn is just someone you can not trust and she went from good to like utter bitch. I mean I am now anxious what will happen next and it seems like Jesse and Rachel will kiss or Rachel and Finn will get together. But who dies?! Thats unexpected twist...Prom to Funeral? If its a main character I think they will lose fans so it must be a guest star. But either way I cannot wait til next tuesday! Though after that we have only 1 episode left kinda deppressing having to wait til fall for a new season. All I know is the directors better make it interesting and not let it be all fan made. All I am saying

@Keith Vlasak Quinn used to be one of my favorite characters last season, the process of dethroning a Queen Bee was interesting to watch and I did feel bad for her. But this season has her character in pieces. I have a lot of respect for Dianna Argon as an actress but consistent character development in writing makes a difference. That being said, I think Quinn's insistence on leaving Glee has more to do with his obvious feelings for Rachel rather than Jesse's involvement. But I think Jesse's going to bring out Finn's jealous side, prompting Quinn to react. Like at Prom. But as it's a promo, I could be wrong. That's just my guess based on the "Go Your Own Way" fiasco. Quinn has been given all sorts of chances to change...She either needs to do and become a little more likable or just let her be mean and leave it at that. This half way crap is just irritating me. Not to mention the justification of her behavior towards Rachel.

Funny how during Rachel's "Jar of Hearts," Jesse looks on with this kind of happy expression (as if he might be falling in love with her) when that song could very well apply to him, too... Though I guess this *is* a kid who doesn't know what a recession is. (That line may have been my favorite, even though it's really air-headed...)

A thing that I think is especially confusing about Quinn is that the writer/producers (going back to comments made after the restart from the initial 13 episodes) reset the characters rather than let them grow and develop and solve all their problems. So, Quinn and Mercedes could develop a friendship when she needs to move out of Puck's ... but then the show sort of just forgets about all of that and Quinn is reset back to zero. It makes for a consistency problem, I think. But, not only the actress who plays Quinn, but the others too all seem to have a deeper sense of their characters and no matter what happens with the plot and dialogue, there is growth in their expressions and their delivery. That's what I think, anyway.

@LelaRose -- I'm not disagreeing with your comment/thought on Quinn by mentioning something else you brought up, the preview for next week ... When I saw Quinn telling Finn they need to quit Glee Club, by the look on Finn's face, I was thinking that Jessie was ruining Glee Club and everybody was miserable about it ... but Rachel wouldn't be and she's the only one who can make things happen, so nothing is happening (guessing by the preview) ... and, so found myself wondering is Quinn really going to step up and force a confrontation to reclaim Glee from Jesse??
