Glee recap: Something to Fight About

Everyone is feuding and singing as secrets come to light. Plus: Santana stirs the pot!
Ep. 16 | Aired Mar 14, 2013

I STILL BELIEVE this much hair gel looks good. 

Adam Rose/Fox

Musical Grades:

Bye Bye Bye/ I Want It That Way (Original by *NSYNC and Backstreet Boys): Sometimes, there are two great, beautiful things that don’t work together. This number was a ton of fun and plus a million points for actually working in the strings of No Strings Attached (Did that bother anyone else? Of course there are strings attached! It’s right there on the CD cover!) but I would have preferred a Britney/Christina mashup if we’re going with songs from that era. B+

Closer (Original by Tegan and Sara): This was just a few seconds of shower singing in the episode, and we didn’t even get some shirtlessness? Unacceptable. Later in the episode, we got the "Ending in the Auditorium" number, which basically just featured the kids running around. B

Cold Hearted (Original by Paula Abdul): I love the fact that Santana's finally getting more numbers. She should always travel with some fly girls. B+

How To Be A Heartbreaker (Marina and the Diamonds): As Brody seductively dances his way through a hotel, Rachel is waiting around at home, playing second fiddle. I love this song (If even a few more people check out Marina and the Diamonds, then this episode was worth it). B+

I Still Believe/Super Bass (Original by Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj): Oh gosh, I don’t know how I felt about this. The Mariah Carey part by Blaine was pretty Glee-club standard, but Sue rapping Super Bass with Cheerio back up? Undecided.

The Bitch is Back/Dress You Up (Original by Elton John and Madonna): Now this is a feud, not to mention an enjoyable mash up. Ryder and Unique were a fun pairing, and feud-wise, Elton/Madonna puts nearly everything else to shame. More stuff like this, please. B

Top Lines:

“Go find a new boyfriend. Maybe Lance Bass is available, or RuPaul.” –Sue to Tina

“We need to do something muscular, like Biggy versus Tupac. Although we know how that turned out.” –Schu

“Blaine is on the bottom” –an airplane banner. So now you know.

"I read all about it on ." –Sue

“I’m pretty sure she just stole my comforter." "Bitch took my pillow.” –Rachel and Kurt about Santana

Ryder is totally getting Catfished by Kitty, yes? What will Brody’s next move be? Is Finn headed to college in New York to get a teaching certificate? What did you think of Ryder and Unique’s fight? Is Jane Lynch coming for Nicki Minaj? Was anyone else briefly afraid Marley and Finn were going to kiss?  How much hair gel, on average, is Darren Criss using in one day of shooting Glee? I can only hope that Brittany's absence is because she's answering all these questions for a Very Special Episode of Fondue for Two.
