That three-week wait was worth it, gleeks: "Wheels" is a pretty good episode. And it does mark the beginning of a string of new plotlines for the characters. Seems Finn is going to figure out the truth being Quinn's baby. Artie gets a storyline of his own (because, let's face it, I don't think his thing with Tina will end just like that). And Sue drops a surprise on us by revealing that her sister has Down's syndrome, something that even Will will not believe.
That said, it's a pretty heavy episode, although not as outright as "Vitamin D". It's the sort of episode that makes you go whisper "whoa" rather than shout "what?" I'll go on a limb and say the final scene between Artie and Tina--when she reveals she's been faking her stuttering all along--is at par with the Will-Emma heartbreaker, because I can really feel Artie's disillusionment. But, as I said, this should not be the end of it. Besides, they do say love knows no boundaries...
Glee is available on Amazon Prime.
And we had pretty good music, too, helped by the fact that Artie gets a solo. We've heard a couple of the songs from last night on the Glee
soundtrack--the disappointingly truncated "Defying Gravity" and the aforementioned "Dancing With Myself"--and then there's "Proud Mary", which features Mercedes, Tina and Artie up front. So come on and listen, and dance, and who knows what else...
