On this week's episode of Glee...

... we quickly met Bryan Ryan, a former social choir participant and new member of the school board. He wanted to slash the budget for the arts and focused on the glee club because he's bitter about never becoming a star. Will did everything in his power to talk Bryan out of this decision, but it took some classic blackmail to get the deed done: after landing the lead in a local production of Les Miserables, Will gave it to Bryan in exchange for the glee club sticking around.

... Artie and Tina had some nice moments together. The former came to the realization that he'll never walk, but that's okay because he can focus on other, attainable dreams. Tina supported him every step of the way.

... we learned that Shelby is Rachel's mother! She used Jesse to get close to Rachel and plant a tape in her memory boxes that would shed some light on her real mother. Shelby was prevented, via contract, from making contact herself with her daughter. But Rachel listened to the tape near the end of the episode and it's safe to assume she'll make the connection very soon. Eek!

Episode Number:

Niel Patrick 1 - rest of the show 0. Oh p-l-e-a-s-e the Shelby/Rachel thing out of the blue? Artie's five minute revelation, he'll never walk - oh yes he will - but no he can't - he's sad now - now he's fine - too pat, even for a sitcom and totally unworthy of the usual intelligence of this show.


woaaah. !!!! Shelbys Rachels MUM. ! WTF.
makes sense thouuuhhhggghh. xx


neil patrick harris was prety much the only good thing about this episode.. tbh it was kinda boring. there was what.. 4 songs?
The one at the end ..i was wanting more and then it was over. was a weird ep :P


Oh my god! Neil Patrick Harris is my hero. He is the greatest actor. His humor is unrivaled, and his singing is amazing too.
I can't wait for this episode!
The back 9 have been pretty....disappointing. I hope this proves to be the comeback it needs.
with NPH onboard, I have no doubt in my mind that it will be amazing!
