Dang diggy dangggg, ladies! Speaking of chemistry. These two have always been an untapped source of juicy duet goodness, and now they’ve finally realized their combined power, which could easily fuel the entire robot dinosaur army Brittany is doubtless planning for Prom-o-saurus. I just love Rachel and Santana being friends…and, okay, I wouldn’t mind seeing some angry sex, either, but their “crap, I just realized I’m actually gonna miss you” conversation is a pretty close second. I think I actually said “awwwwww!” out loud when Santana stuck Rachel’s picture in her locker, looked at it, and smiled to herself. That happy sexy feeling doesn’t last too long, though, because in the next scene we’re watching all the girls gossiping and relaxing together while they touch up their makeup in the girls’ room…and Quinn is doing her makeup in the reflection of the hand-dryer.

Of course we know better, because at the same time, Joe’s off doing the guy version of bathroom gossip with Sam in the boys’ locker room; and he’s convinced Quinn’s the one who’s not interested in him. I don’t want to spend too much more time on the Quinn/Joe storyline, because we’ve already summed it up pretty thoroughly and there’s just a ton of other crap going on; but I have to reiterate here how much I love the honesty and authenticity of Sam and Joe’s grappling with what their faith actually means to them. Yes, says Sam, the Bible does say premarital sex is a sin; but it also says tattoos are a sin, and clearly that didn’t stand in Joe’s way when he inked himself up. There are plenty of things in the Bible that even the most devout Judeo-Christian doesn’t follow in the 21st century (like, say, selling your kids into slavery or making babies with the maid if your wife has fertility issues, just for starters). That doesn’t mean you throw it away; you just have to find a way to make it meaningful and relevant to your life. Rock on, God squad. There is
