New Directions and the Warblers face off at regionals.

I'm speechless and in such a bad way. So much contrived viewer manipulation and PSA.

And now I feel bad cause teen suicides ARE a big deal but I hated this episode.

Remember when TPTB said that Glee was not the show for a suicide storyline? I think they should have gone with their instincts. I can't even articulate all of my issues with this right now.

"To be continued" are the ugliest words in any language. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I really loved this episode, and what really surprised me the most was that I actually bought the compassion that the Warblers and the Gleeks were showing towards Karofsky.

I loved all the music in this episode.

Quinn got kicked off the cheerleading squad, ostracized by the student body, had a crazy woman coercing her into giving up her baby to her, was publicly outed as a cheater/liar in regards to her baby's paternity, was kicked out of her house by her parents and then moved in with Finn and then moved in with Puck and THEN moved in with Mercedes, and gave up a child for adoption during one year of high school. So I'm not sure everyone loved her. But of course, nothing can ever compare to the pain that Kurt knows. Ick. That was just so gross that he would try to minimize anyone else's situation.

(Admittedly Quinn wasn't terribly amazing during that conversation but still.)

Did Blaine's rapping really deserve a standing O?

I will give some major kudos for that hospital room scene because that made me tear up. Even though that was a lot to accomplish in 10 years.

As soon as I saw Quinn in a car, I knew what was going to happen. Way to cover two modern teen causes of death, Glee!

What?! I knew it was coming but....what?! The foreshadowing of Quinn driving and texting...but I thought they would make it a close call.

Heeeee! I was hating so much about this episode, but they won me over with the pure ridiculous stupidity of that last second. I know people have predicted that Ryan Murphy would do to Quinn what he did to Popular's Brooke but I honestly never thought for a second that he actually would. So I couldn't help but laugh.

And I saw two shows warring in one breast.

Mopey drama Glee took over most of the show (and it's basically never good when that happens), but you having comedy Glee still present, mostly in the form of Jeff Goldblum (who is a gem; seriously, why did it take this long to meet Rachel's dads?) and Ian Brennan dressed as a vampire judge.

I didn't like it. I really didn't like it.

I don't even care about the cliffhanger or the sad storylines because I didn't feel connected or moved by any of it. I'm not even sad. I'm numb.

I did love Kurt joining the God squad to pray for Dave and being honest about how he felt instead of torturing himself in silence. I love The Troubletones (they're so perfect) and Rachel's "Here's To Us." That's about it.

In the grand scheme of things, at least Quinn was reaching down to check her phone and not to pick up a scoop of fallen ice cream.

HA! I'd almost entirely forgotten about that.

In other news, I think they should all kill themselves. Except for Santana. And Sebastian. And Brittany, because Santana would be muy triste if Brit-Brit died.

I am not sure what to make of this episode. I didn't really like any of the music (except the one Blaine song was ok, but I probably only enjoyed it because I was so intent on the Karofsky scene that I was not sure what to think).

The Karofsky/Kurt scenes made it all worth while for me.. that was so sweet.

Quinn? that came COMPLETELY out of left field. And now I have to wait for 6 weeks? I hate Ryan Murphy.

Glee has a pretty low bar for being careless, exploitative, irresponsible, offensive, and emotionally manipulative, and this was the worst IMO.

Glad I was spoiled about the car crash. Not a fan of the suicide plot. If the writers are trying to make young people feel more comfortable about coming out of the closet, this story line backfired big time. Wonder who Sue's baby Daddy is.

What the hell was that? Oh, I was contemplating suicide, but I watched Glee and I'm healed. Oh, and I won't text while driving anymore either.

As far as Finchel goes, all the parents had to do was let them know they wouldn't be paying college tuitions or living expenses and that would be the end of that.

I hated this show tonight. Why was Blaine giving Sebastian approving looks? He almost blinded you, you idiot.

Ugh, just ugh.

Cut unfortunately. Anyways this episode can give IKAG a run for its money in worst episode this season and probably ever.

It also seriously bothers me that they can treat Santana's outing so blase but OMG!The Pain! The Horror! The Suffering! when it comes to male homosexuality(and I like Karofsky).

Well that's irritating. Of course Quinn gets her life togetherish and then that happens.
