Weekly Gleek: Whose Vagina are you going to use?

OMGlee, you guys. Mr. Schue doesn’t speak Spanish, Professor Dollface teaches the boys to lift & scrub, and that’s how Germany won the second world war. On a scale of one to gay sharks, how much did you love this episode?

 

 

Yes, that is how much we loved it, too. So much! I don’t know what they’ve been feeding those writers, but please send me over a plate, because dayyyum. There were so many awesome things this week—so many!—but I think we’ll all agree that the number one most awesomest thing this week was the same most awesomest thing from last week, and that is one Santana Lopez. I love how her badassery has increased exponentially every week since she came out. Seeing her cocoon of insecurities fall away to reveal the blindingly brilliant butterfly within just makes me wanna stand up and slap her ass. 

OK, so let’s break this shit down. The premise of this week’s ep is that the senile History teacher (who I’m pretty sure used to be the senile Geometry teacher who praised Sue for abusing the Glee kids, thus giving her the inspiration to run for Congress on an anti-arts-education platform) has finally been forced into retirement when she started teaching the kids about how Germany won World War II.

 

So now, there’s an opening for a tenured position at McKinley. Will totally wants it so he can make a baby with Emma and shower it with food and clothing in perpetuity. Of course, Sue wants it too, for the exact same reason (more on the Sue Sylvester quest for baby gravy to come), and after a horribly offensive and super-lame performance of “La Cucaracha” to his Spanish class on Taco Tuesday, Will realizes he needs professional help if he’s gonna snatch the gig from Sue Sylvester’s clutches.

Night school Spanish teacher Ricky Martin is more than happy to oblige. Once he realizes how horrendous Will’s Spanish actually is (who is more macho of/from Will Schuester?!) he explains how he learned English by watching Solid Gold as a child, and suggests that Will and his students could greatly benefit from learning Spanish through music immersion as well. Sure worked for me—my high school Spanish teacher used to

! you just reminded me about all these soap operas, in the early 90s they first aired the dubbed 'Tu o Nadie' in Lebanon, my father tells me streets would get empty because everyone was watching TV when that was on; Corazon De Piedra was a hymn and they even printed T-shirts about Antonio and Raquel, then Maria La Del Barrio followed and Maria Mercedes so Thalia became famous over here since then.. sheesh

I know this is irrelevant but I just wanted to thank you for reminding me about some stuff I almost totally forgot Smile

Go Santana! the 'Lebanese' badass  Laughing out loud
