The Beatles are back! Well for another week on Glee, that is…
Dust off your dancing shoes and grab your sparkliest dress because once again it's time for prom at McKinley High! Enjoy it while you can because according to newly-crowned Principal Sue (Jane Lynch) this is a "bundle prom" meaning it very well could be the last one we see in Glee history.
While Tina is busy throwing shade at anyone blocking her path to prom queen victory, Kitty (Becca Tobin) is dealing with the popularity pressures from the newest cheerio Bree (Erinn Westbrook)—aka the new wannabe-but-will-never-be Santana (Naya Rivera)
And over in NYC our terrific threesome has just welcomed the newest (and dare we say spunkiest?) member of the Glee family. Demi Lovato made her highly-anticipated debut as Dani, a musically-inclined waitress who shares some serious sparks with our girl Santana. From a HummelBerry duet to yet another new love interest for Sam (Chord Overstreet) and big news for our Miss Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) read on for all the Glee-filled goodness from Tina In the Sky With Diamonds.
WARNING: This is a recap of the latest episode of Glee, if you don't want to be spoiled then we suggest you stop reading right… NOW!
McKinley Mayhem: Tina is determined to snag that coveted crown at prom, but once again we realize that the sweet Tina that we met four years ago is long gone, and it looks like snarky Tina is here to stay. In a classic Carrie move, Bree manipulates Dotti Kazatori to dumping an entire bucket of red slushies onto Tina's newly tiara-crowned head in front of the entire school. Not to worry! The New Directions quickly clean Tina up, Kitty gives her a sassy new dress, and once again all is right in the world of Glee.
Is It Love or Lust? Another week, another new love interest! Rarely single Sam has fallen for the new college student school nurse, Penny Owen (Phoebe Strole). (Damn! We really wish that given it was Beatles week that she would've been named Penny Lane!) He pretends to be sick, they flirt, and it's all very adorable.
Now onto the real romance! Santana and Dani are almost too cute for words, and it's fun to finally see Santana act overly nervous and excited about a girl. We've missed her smile and after everything she's been through (and that failed yeast infection commercial) she deserves to be happy. After a sweet nod to the Britanna fans, it looks like Santani/Dantana (whichever you prefer!) are well on their way to being one of our new favorite couples. We especially loved their warm rendition of "Here Comes the Sun" followed by a very short but oh-so sweet kiss.
Hey There Funny Girl! You guys… Rachel snagged the role of Fanny Brice in the Broadway revival of Funny Girl! Who else is twirling around their room right now?! After spending the entire episode feeling like a failure, our beautiful Miss Berry sang a toe-tapping duet with Kurt (Chris Colfer), and got some pep back in her step just in time for the casting director to surprise her with the good news in the diner. Her reaction was priceless, the champagne toast in the loft was adorable, and once again we can't help but wish that Glee would solely focus on our NYC stars.
Line Of the Night: Santana's entire yeast infection commercial. It was 30 seconds of pure carb-filled goodness!
