‘Glee’ Plans A Valentine’s Day Wedding
Wedding bells are ringing on this week’s special Valentine’s Day episode of Glee.
Will and Emma’s wedding is finally here and the members of New Directions (old and new) are reuniting for the event.
But the bride seems a little more stressed out than usual about the whole thing. On “Getting Married Today” from the Stephen Sondheim penned musical Company, Emma starts off sweet and operatic to talk about her upcoming nupitals, but soon she’s speaking a mile a minute about how maybe she won’t be getting married after all. Huh?
This might have something do with a certain kiss she shared with Finn, who is Mr. Schuester’s best man. Scandalous! Since Finn is more than a little nervous about looking him in the eye, this could turn the big day into a Valentine’s Day massacre.
Making matters worse, Finn was asked by the groom to sing a special song at the wedding. Finn has come up with a few possibilities–Usher’s “Confessions,” The Cars’ “My Best Friend’s Girl” and “Lying Eyes” by The Eagles—all of which only highlight his guilt.
Luckily, Rachel suggests they sing a duet. But from listening to their version of “We’ve Got Tonite” by Kenny Rogers and Sheena Easton, it seems like they may be doing a lot more than singing before the night is through.
The other guys on the glee club are also gearing up for a very special Valentine’s Day.
Jake wants to make the day special for Marley, but his brother Puck isn’t being too much help. His suggestion to give Marley some lingerie and have her put on a fashion show doesn’t go over well. But don’t worry, Ryder tells Jake to put less focus on February 14 and make it Valentine’s Day week.
Jake seems to have gotten the hint. Him and the rest of the boys break out the hot pink tuxes and ruffled shirts for Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell’s classic “You’re All I Need To Get By.” With a little help from Marley, Jake shows his soulful side and few key dance moves.
Kurt and Blaine spice things up with their synth-filled version of Depeche Mode’s “Just Can’t Get Enough.” If you believe creator Ryan Murphy, plan to see these two sharing not only a duet but a smooch.
The whole theme of the night though seems to be anything could happen, including Sue Sylvester stealing having her own wedding at the same exact time. Yep, even that could happen.
New Directions get to the point singing Ellie Goulding’s song of the same name.
See if anyone actually says “I Do” on this Thursday’s episode of Glee.
