Gleecap: Glee 4x07 - 'Dynamic Duets' Recap

Follow TroutyMouthBlog on Twitter

We know it was Thanksgiving and all, but shouldn't your family know by now that nothing comes between you and your Glee, not even the most succulent turkey, delicious mashed potatoes, savory green bean casserole and the most scrumptious pumpkin pie? BRB we're hungry... while we're gone, make yourself busy and catch up on what you missed on last week's Glee episode: 4x07 "Dynamic Duets". Nom nom nom nom nom...

This week's Glee opens up at the Superhero Club meeting, which basically consists of only Glee club members and Becky. I'm shocked that we haven't heard of this before.

Crisis of the week: The New Directions' Nationals trophy was stolen. (GASP!)

Never fear, turns out Night Bird (aka Blaine Warbler) has a special power that just so happens to recover lost trophies. So he goes to Dalton Academy to recover said trophy, and they tell him that they'll give it back if Blaine rejoins the Warblers.

He of course says, "No" but they take him to the dark side by: (dun dun dunnnn), making him sing "My Dark Side" WHILE wearing a Warblers jacket. (Gasp x 2!)

Meanwhile, back at WMHS, Finn is unsurprisingly struggling as the Glee Club leader, and Tina is still alive.

He decides to make the theme of the week "Dynamic Duets". Everyone had to dress up as superheros, and Ryder + Jake had to sing together, and Kitty + Marley had to sing together, just so that they could squash their differences.

Ryder and Jake decide that they're both Mega Studs (um what?) and they think that they should sing "I am Superman" to try and win the love of that Absolutely Stunning Kind-Faced Blue Eyed Gir, Marley. But they end up beating each other up.

To get them to really squash their differences, Finn tells them to tell one another their biggest fears.

In the other dynamic duo, Kitty takes it upon herself to dress up as Femme Fatale and decide their song should be "Holding Out For A Hero".

Marley, still self conscious doesn't want to dress up in a super hero costume. But after trying it on, and Kitty convincing her that she looked hot- insert alterior motif right here- Marley decides she'll wear the costume, and go as Woman Fierce. P.S. the performance was great and Teen Jesus' hair turned into a whip...

Uh oh, trouble on the front line, superheroes, where's Blaine?! Finn unveils that Night Bird may have left to go to Dalton, because everything at McKinley reminded him too much of Kurt. #wompwomp #wompwompwomp

Jake decides to hand Ryder a note that shows off his "kyrptonite". Ryder tells him to be a man and tell him face-to-face. Jake accepts the challenge and says that he's insecure about his mixed race. Ryder's kryptonite in response: He couldn't read Jake's note. (Gasp x 3!)

Jake tells Finn about Ryder's disability, and Finn takes Ryder to see a special education teacher. He finds out he's dyslexic. He thanks Finn, but Finn tells him that Jake's the real hero (insert creys).

Jake stands up to the jocks during lunch, as they, once again are making fun of Marley's mom. #sadpanda. As the jocks surround Jake to fight him, Ryder steps in and tells them that he has Jake's back. (I smell a new studly BFF duo over here.)

Sam talks to Blaine about Kurt. Blaine whines some more about how awful he felt about cheating on Kurt. Sam basically told him to man-up and tell Kurt that. #seriouslybro #manup

Together, Blam sings "Heroes" by David Bowie. It was a good duet. And the performance was basically adorbs, because the Glee club was doing some community service which ended in a paint fight, which we loved, and then the song concluded with Wham, Blam, thank you ma'am taking the Glee Club's Nationals trophy back to McKinley.

Jake decides to give older brother Puck a call (since I guess they do that now?) to get a little brotherly advice on how to get Marley to like him, without intentionally sabotaging Ryder, since they're BFFs now (all this back and forth relationship talk is confusing us).

Puck, who is making money dressed as... wouldn't you know it? A superhero named the PuckerMan on Hollywood Blvd, tells Jake to hang back, be cool, don't be a dick, and let her come to him. So that's what Jake decides to do.

Conveniently for him, Ryder decides that now that he knows what his learning disability is, he should stay in on Friday and study. So he cancels his plans with Marley. Marley, trying to be self-confident after a knock from Kitty, decides to go up and ask Jake out on a date. And he accepts. Thanks for the advice Big Bro!

Then, in true-Glee fashion, the episode concludes with "Some Nights" by Fun. And it was Fun.

...And that's what you missed on Glee!

Glee Cast - "Something Stupid" First Listen!

Follow TroutyMouthBlog on Twitter

We knew it was coming, but how do we feel about it? We know that in an upcoming episode Sam and Brittany are going to have a duet about... must we say it? ... Love.

What does it mean? We don't know. How is it going to be used in the show? We don't know. But what we do know is that we really dig the harmonies of one Heather Morris & Chord Overstreet... much to our dismay, since we wanted to hate it oh-so-badly. Hey, can't win 'em all, right? Here's your first listen of Glee's "Something Stupid":

Gleecap: Glee 4x05 - 'The Role You Were Born to Play' Recap

Follow TroutyMouthBlog on Twitter

So after a five week hiatus, Glee returned last week with "The Role You Were Born to Play". And after those awful break ups, we can understand why you may have missed the episode for reasons like locking yourself in a coffin after those awful breakups or driving yourself insane from the possibilities that lie ahead with each relationship. So incase that was you, here's what you missed on Glee 4x05 "The Role You Were Born to Play":

The episode starts off with Finn whining about not having anything to look forward to. Artie encourages to direct the Musical... beacause Finn is Artie's hero. I'm not sure I agree with this - for reasons I'll explain later - but he agrees nonetheless.

Blaine the cheater... who's apparently hopelessly devoted to Kurt, doesn't think he can play Danny Zuko. So he auditions for the musical, singing "Hopelessly Devoted", but thinks he can only MAYBE play Teen Angel, since, you know, he's so heartbroken and all. #what?

Finn decides that he doesn't think he's cut out for directing, but Artie is here to save the day by bringing in reinforcements by the names of Mercedes Jones and Mike Chang. Because most college kids can just take off school to help with their high school's musical.

Beiste also returns this episode with some hilarity in the form of Wemma Couple's Counseling... So that's a treat... and Emma decides during this sesh that she'd like to go to Washington with Will. We don't buy it Emma...

Unique wants to play Rizzo, but doesn't think she'll get cast as the part. If Sue Sylvester has anything to do with it, Unique won't get Riz. Marley decides she wants to audition for Sandy. Sue tries to discourage them with insults, but it's nearly impossible to bash Absolutely Stunning Kind Face Blue Eyed Girl Marley.

Marley and Unique decide to do a joint audition after an unwanted, inappropriate, and rather grotesque excellent pinky link, and together they ruin sing "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)".

Since they can't find anyone to play Danny (and they really tried hard?) Finn decides that he would take matters into his own hands and find someone who can make a difference. Enter Ryder Lynn.

Finn encourages Rider to try out for the musical, but Ryder is struggling with his grades. Find out he gets a C- on his latest test, even though he studied for hours. He decided, with the help of Finn, that the best way to improve your grades is to add more extra-curriculars to your schedule.

Finn and Ryder sing "Jukebox Hero" with a bunch of jukeboxes surrounding them, and that concludes Ryder's audition. #normalpolicies

When Ryder finds out he's probably going to play Danny and Marley's probably going to play Sandy, he introduces himself and the two have so much chemistry, it could set the school on fire.

Puck Jake gets jealous and decides he wants to try out for the musical as Danny. Kitty decides she wants to try out for Sandy just to spite Marley. #drama

Together Jake and Kitty try out with "Everybody Talks". It was actually a pretty hawt audition. I dug it. Big time.

The old Directions decide that they'd call back the 4 Danny/Sandy auditions and have a perforamnce-off with "Born To Hand Jive". Hands down the best performance of the night, as it was kicked off by one Mercedes Jones, and the tension in the performance was just like the tension you felt in "Grease".

Tina doesn't want to try out for the musical because Mike is back to direct. More tension comes when he tells her she needs to try out because she'd make the perfect Jan. I dig the Tike tension, for showw.

Sue tries to discourage Finn from casting Unique as Rizzo, and he retorts by calling her baby retarded. Smart Finn. Smart. #PickANewHeroArtie

Oh. Don't forget about the far-too-long interaction between Will and Emma where Emma tells him that she doesn't want to go to Washington. So.. she's not going to. #wasteoffiveminutes

When Schue tells Finn that he's leaving, Finn gets all whiney and stuff, but Schue decides it's time for Finn to start calling him Will, put on a sweater vest, and take over the New Directions.

The cast list is decided at the end, and you can see who's playing what roles here: Glease Cast List. We personally find this cast-list to be GOLD. Particularly the role of Patty Simcox.

And here's what you didn't miss: Rachel Berry, Santana Lopez, Quinn Fabray, Noah Puckerman, a talking Brittany, a good Wemma scene, a tremendous performance, Finn being the hero that he is, Mike Chang's abs, or logic and continuity.

...And that's what you missed on Glee!
