Glee 2.16 “Original Song” Review

First of all, I just have to say I am so proud of Rachel. You go, girl. Finally they wrote you as someone I actually can bring myself to care about. Too bad you had to suffer heartbreak and write a song about your pain for me to like you. Nevertheless, that was amazing. Hands down the best song and performance of the episode.

Now, I’ll be the first to admit I was kind of dreading this episode and the whole let’s-do-an-original-song-for-Regionals thing. I didn’t even check out the previews that were released a couple of weeks ago because I was afraid that if they sucked, I wouldn’t be able to suffer through the episode knowing that.

I am very pleased to say, however, that not only the songs were great — I am excluding Santana’s awful song, of course — but the entire episode was amazing. I had high expectations for ‘Original Song’and they did not fail to deliver.

I am so glad that someone finally addressed the fact that the Warblers were basically Blaine and a bunch of background singers. That issue annoyed me to no end and I couldn’t even make myself care about them — or Blaine — because of that. Everything changed in this episode, though. Blaine and Kurt are finally together (and that was an amazing scene when he finally declares himself to Kurt) and I just fell in love with Darren Criss. Seriously.

Quinn is back to being the world’s biggest b*tch and completely crushed Rachel. Sure it served for our loser queen to get her act together and write and perform a great song, but she didn’t deserve to go through that. I really don’t like what they have done with Quinn’s character this season. Last year she grew up so much and it’s sad to see that all she cares about now is being crowned Prom Queen with Finn.

It was also great to see the storyline about Santana and Brittany addressed again, however small a mention it was. That’s what continuity is all about, so kudos to The Powers That Be for that.

It wasn’t really a surprise that they won Regionals and placed for Nationals. After all, we still have at least other episodes until the finale, which I am assuming will take place during Nationals.

I honestly can’t wait.

A+, Glee. With honors.
