Glee: Previewing Episode 10 "Ballad"
Glee: Previewing Episode 10 "Ballad"
Now, I remember some gleeks actually getting frustrated when they found themselves shedding a tear or two after last week's episode. "This show is a drama?" they said, and I answered, "it can be." It sort of has. So there goes Glee, evolving from a feel-good comedy to a potentially nerve-wrecking drama, and now... a suspense thriller?

Okay, I'm exaggerating it. I am, of course, referring to Rachel's huge crush on Will, which is still a surprised because (1) it took ten episodes and (2) she's been complaining that he's out to destroy her career from the very start. If it was me, I would've called it a crush right then and there--not that I've had a crush on a teacher, mind.

And that all happens because of Will's ill-fated decision to have them both sing "Endless Love". Then again, it isn't his fault: he had to pitch in when Rachel's supposed partner gets sick. You see, he got everyone in glee club pair up and sing their favorite ballad, which means this isn't the only duet worth watching--Kurt and Finn? Still a hilarious prospect--only this was the only one that really took off.

Unlucky for Will, this isn't the only one. Suzy Pepper, come in, please.

Also tonight, Finn meets Quinn's parents, and things won't be going well--so much for singing. Let me guess. Paul Anka's "(You're) Having My Baby?" Apparently that's the thing that'll get him in hot water. What, because they don't like a spazzed-out guy like him bearing their granddaughter?

Sarah Drew, Gregg Henry and Charlotte Ross guest star in tonight's freshly-printed Glee, from 9pm on Fox. Of course, you know where the photos (and videos!) are.
