Glee: Season 2, Episode 9 :: Special Education

Nov 29, 2010

In "Special Education" (Season 2, Episode 9 of Glee), with sectionals quickly approaching, Mr. Schu decides to mix things up a bit. Instead of giving Rachel and Mercedes a solo, he lets Quinn and Sam sing a duet and spotlights Brittany’s dancing. Since Kurt’s absence, glee club is down one number and does not have the required amount of members needed to compete. Puck heads out to find a new recruit, but instead gets stuck in a port-a-potty. A girl named Lauren finds him and decides to join the club.

Kurt has officially left the New Directions and tries to fit in with his new glee club the Warblers. The club gives him the chance to audition for a solo, but he worries about his talent and teams up with Rachel to practice “Don’t’ Cry for Me Argentina.” Despite practicing Kurt gets turned down for the solo and gets a lecture from Blaine on being a better team member.

The Breakup

The news about Finn and Santana’s hook up last year finally gets leaked to Rachel, and makes her even more emotional than normal. Coupled with the fact that Mr. Schu won’t give her a solo, the news is more than she can take and in a shocking turn of events, she hooks up with Puck. After hearing about it Finn breaks up with Rachel.

Sectionals

The two teams competing against the New Directions for sectionals couldn’t be more different and, expect for one song (“Hey, Soul Sister”), were barely featured on the episode. The New Directions kick off sectionals with Quinn and Sam singing “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life,” popularized by the classic 1980s movie Dirty Dancing, and close with “Valerie.” In the end Kurt’s new glee club and the New Directions tie for first place.

Set List

The following songs were featured on this week’s episode of Glee:

  • “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” from Evita
  • “The Living Years” by Mike & The Mechanics
  • “Hey, Soul Sister” by Train
  • “(I’ve Had) The Time of My Life” by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes
  • “Valerie” by The Zutons

I like The Legend Of Korra slightly better because that show took risks that were hardly taken in a show of its kind. It included a lot of mature themes and it really connects with today's older youth.

Well I'm not a really big fan of Taylor Swift but if I had to choose I love both because 'shake it off' is for the older teens as well. So its great as she is growing up so is her music
