So much goodness on Glee this week, I barely know where to begin. We have Kurt and Blaine finally getting together, for realz (and all it took was a dead canary that signifies the end of a 100-year-old preptastic mascot line, plus some appropriate Beatles lyrics), then singing the sweetest, awesomest new boyfriend ever duet in front of a thousand people. We have Brittany trying her hardest not to let Santana push her away after last week’s romantic rejection, but despite her best efforts, Santana just wants to deflect her heartbreak onto Stubbles McCripplepants and Trouty Mouth.

Because, it’s just so silly, but we queer ladies as an audience tend to notice when the bitchy head cheerleader draws pornographic pictures of the girl she tortures daily in the bathroom and on her notebook, verbally abusing said girl with gender-bending insults while wearing a cross and being president of the celibacy club, and consistently avoiding letting her hunky boyfriend touch her, might a repressed lesbian make. I mean, seriously—Quinn Fabray got a whole new internetz slang term coined for her: she’s a pressed lemon. Get it? Yeah. It’s pretty adorable…especially when combined with the freaking gold star that is Rachel Berry. And this ep was the most face time they’ve
