Egad, it's a Glee episode without Sue Sylvester! We may have missed her one-liners last night, but the absence wasn't glaring, for we still got a handful of comic moments--the idea of Rachel falling for Will just like that is still scary--and a lot of stories moving forward.

Who would've thought that an unlikely pairing between Kurt and the love of his life, Finn, would result in Finn finally telling her parents about her pregnancy? We should've seen the fallout from the moment her dad started watching Glenn Beck. Who would've thought that the same pair-up would lead to Puck admitting to Mercedes that he is the father of the baby? Would you believe it's all part of Kurt's plan to have Finn cry on his shoulder pads? Me neither.

Glee continued its streak of damn good episodes--in a satisfying way rather than a laugh-out-loud way--thanks to a couple of dramatic scenes between Finn and her mom, who also just found out about the pregnancy, and the one with Quinn's parents, which was quite uncomfortable to watch. There goes my heart again, going out to Quinn--whenever she cries, I have the urge to do so, too. Ouch. Don't worry, next week, we get Sue back, fresh from leaking New Directions' set list...

Last night was also chock-full of music: six tracks, already available for download on iTunes, and also on the second Glee CD, which hits stores next month. Here goes the full versions then, including Rachel's "Crush", which benefits from not being interrupted by a freaked out Will. Ready, gleeks?
