Principal Figgins tells Sue she’s out of line, and
“cannot perform a stunt that dangerous. Our insurance premium is through
the roof as it is!”
“You’re not going to take this away from me,” Sue
snarls. “This level of risk and danger makes me feel alive again.”
“But the risk and danger isn’t to you,” Figgins
“That’s the best part!” Sue answers.
He tells her she can’t use the cannon without written
consent from the student, and Sue goes on a massive rampage, destroying desks,
pushing the students, even trashing the locker room in front of a shocked Coach
Beiste while apocalyptic music plays in the background. Awesome.
Then she reschedules the cheerleading regional to the same
night as the football championship game, leaving the team without cheerleaders
or a halftime show.
But it’s okay, because Mr. Shu is offering the Glee Club to
do the halftime show — including the football goons.
Mr. Schu tells the Cheerios who are in glee they’ll have to
choose between cheerleading and performing at the game. The song, he announces,
will be a mash-up of “Thriller” and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs‘ “Heads
“New Directions, Titans,” says Coach Beiste.
“We’re goin’ to zombie camp.”
The two groups get together in the auditorium to practice
learning to dance like zombies. Mr. Schu pulls Karofsky aside, and tells him
he’s really talented, and that if he took the energy he puts into bullying
people into singing and dancing, he could be great.
And Karofsky’s all shucks, ma’am, it weren’t nothin’, and
looks sensitive and pleased, and I’m sorry, but I’m not ready to like him or
forgive him yet. He made Kurt fear for his life. And now all it takes is one
compliment on his sense of rhythm and he’s all sweet and shy? No. Just no.
But props to Max
Adler, who is incredible in this role.
So Karofsky goes up to Finn, who tells him to leave him
alone, “It’s hard enough not kicking you in the nuts every time I see
Karofsky ignores it, and shyly suggests they do a “warm
up” number before the big one, because he needs the practice. And Finn, of
course, says he “couldn’t agree more.”
Later, in the girls’ rest room, Brittany, Santana and Quinn
are washing off their zombie makeup.
“Zombie camp is funner than I expected,” Brittany says. “The
Glee Club together with the football team, it’s like a double rainbow. A zombie
Quinn says she doesn’t know what to do, whether to go to the
cheerleading competition or the halftime show with Glee Club; she says she’s
“I’m not,” says Santana.
“I’m Brittany,” says Brittany.
Sue appears, and says she couldn’t help but overhear their
conversation while she was in the stall, thanks to “the Swiss timepiece
regularity and utter silence of my 2 PM ninja poops.” I really could have
lived without that line. She tells the girls they have to choose, in writing, between
Glee Club and the Cheerios.
