'Glee' recap: Kurt Comes Home!
While other people are learning to accept themselves, Santana decides that she needs to become prom queen so that she can trick Brit-Brit into being her girlfriend. To that end, she confronts Karofsky and agrees to be his beard, and then forces him to adopt an anti-bullying program that includes wearing a totally gay beret. [ I was just impressed that kids in Ohio knew about the Guardian Angels. -- Angel] Her ultimate goal is to get Karofsky to apologize to Kurt so that he can return to McKinley and she can be a hero, thereby winning prom queen votes. And you know what? It works! Kurt comes back to McKinley, singing fabulous songs and wearing fabulous outfits that aren't ugly uniforms. In the end, it's Kurt who stages a Barbra-vention, leading Rachel to reject the idea of a nose job. And that leads to the entire club, sans Santana, singing Lady Gaga's ode to loving yourself exactly as you are.
Featuring "As If We Never Said Goodbye," from Sunset Boulevard, performed by Kurt, Lady Gaga's "Born This Way," performed by the entire Glee Club, a mash-up of "I Feel Pretty" from West Side Story (which I'm not linking to -- if you don't know it, you're not gay enough to watch this show) and TLC's "Unpretty," performed by Rachel and Quinn, the classic "I've Gotta Be Me," most famously performed by Sammy Davis, Jr., performed here by Finn (with dance assist from Mike Chang), and Keane's "Somewhere Only We Know," performed by the Warblers, to Kurt, as a way of sending him off to McKinley.
