It wasn’t a Valentine’s Day episode but it was a night of a thousand loves on Glee in “Yes/No.”
Glee Review “Yes/No”
Becky and Sue
Both Becky and Sue showed new sides to their personalities in this episode. I mean, Becky had a voiceover by Helen Mirren which is just, ah, worthy of so many hearts.
Is that a mohawk, Puckerman, or did someone glue a squirrel to your head?
I, Becky Faye Jackson, am the hottest bitch at McKinley High School… you may be wondering why I sound like the Queen of England. It’s simple: in mind, I can sound like whomever I want. So lay off, haters.
Of course, we can’t forget the completely sweet scene that Becky and Sue shared, as the two bonded over ice cream and Lifetime TV. If you’ve never seen Beaches, you really should.
The First Proposal
After Emma’s parents scare Will away from marrying their daughter, Will took them a little seriously. He seemed to have some major doubts weighing on his mind, until Sam just so happened to have a great proposal idea. Well, nothing will stop the Schuester from choreography that good! But really, it seemed like Will didn’t make a choice to propose as he made a choice to give the proposal.
since I don’t have a heart of stone, I did love the way the entire proposal worked out. From the outstretched hand, the white roses, the swimming, the walking on water, the ridiculous white hat (okay, maybe not that) and the words Will proposed with. By the end, I was totally swooning.
The Second Proposal
High school sweethearts are cute, but even if you decide to marry them shouldn’t you wait until you’ve graduated? I’m not a fan of Rachel and Finn for many reasons. But even in this proposal, Finn seemed to be grasping onto Rachel saying, “you’re a star and going places. I’m not. So please let me be with you for the ride!” Finn switched from wanting to join the military to decided to get married. And he made this switch awfully quick. If I was Rachel, I’d be downright insulted. She has to know this wasn’t on his mind until Will made them do all of the assignments for Emma. When his Mom tells him what his Dad was really like, Finn no longer has the army to save his future. So … hey, how about getting engaged? Just say no, Rachel!
Be My Best Man, Dude
Despite all of the laws everyone breaks on Glee, sometimes some of them just seem too weird. Mr. Schuester asking Finn to be his best man seemed really odd. Especially in light of his comment about how Finn has taught him about being a man. Well, does a man realize that he’ll get in trouble to be this chummy with his teenage student? And Finn is not a man so much as a man-in-training. At least Will could have been honest about how he just doesn’t have any other friends to ask.
The Rachel Berry Show
When Rachel had her solo, it was beautiful. But I was damn glad that Santana mentioned that Rachel had basically made this all about her. Sure, most of the kids end up relating to the songs they pick for their assignments. But Rachel really is totally self-centered as a character, that’s her thing. Having cute clothing and a killer voice does not mean she’s not still annoying sometimes.
