Puck, still giving the love to Artie as his community
service project, sets them up as buskers on campus, then intimidates the
students into throwing money into his guitar case. Which he says they’re going
to use to double date with Santana and Brittany.
And Puck gives some excruciatingly bad advice about women to Artie, and makes
snotty comments about my beloved Brittana, and I’m really starting to hate you,
Meanwhile, or for all I know it’s a week later, Kurt goes
off to spy on their competition at the all-boys school. I can’t imagine why he
chose that as his target, can you?
Now, half the Glee viewing
audience was waiting to see Santana and Brittany make out, which we saw a
couple episodes ago, and the other half was waiting for this: The first time
Kurt and Blaine (Darren Criss) lay eyes on each other.

name instead of Mike’s. Then Quinn picks her fight, loudly, with Sam, and Coach
Beiste and Will both overhear it, and Mike comes by and warns Coach Beiste to
stay away from his woman, and then Will gives Mike and Sam the obligatory
lecture about how Coach Beiste is an outsider just like the glee kids and that
they suck. Okay, back to the queer storyline.
