Glee: Season 2, Episode 3 :: Grilled Cheesus
Fin prays to a grilled cheese sandwich and makes three wishes. Find out if they came true on this week’s episode of Glee, entitled "Grilled Cheesus" (Season 2, Episode 3).
This week Glee showed its more serious side as the members of the club contemplate religion. The episode begins when Kurt’s dad has a heart attack and ends up in the hospital with a coma. Kurt is hit hard by the experience, and shuts off his emotions, declaring that he does not believe in God. Mercedes and Rachel try to show Kurt that praying can help the situation, but the only way he can express himself is through his own rendition of “I Want to Hold Your Hand” by the Beatles.
On a more silly side, Fin makes a grilled cheese sandwich with a burn that resembles the face of Jesus. He prays to the Grilled Cheesus, asking for three wishes: let the football team win their next game, get Rachel to go to second base, and let Kurt’s father get better. After Sam gets hurt during the football game Fin feels responsible and breaks into REM’s “Losing My Religion.”
Sue is also at the forefront of this week’s episode after fighting with Mr. Schuester over glee club singing songs about religion. She reveals that her anxiety over religion is due to her sister, with whom she feels God has been unfair. In the end the relationship with her sister allows her to loosen up and appreciate the glee club’s performance of “One of Us.”
Next week the kids tackle duets and a love triangle forms. Stay tuned for more Glee!
