Glee: Season 2, Episode 11 :: The Sue Sylvester Shuffle
After a very long winter break Glee returns with a special Super Bowl episode: The Sue Sylvester Shuffle (Season 2, Episode 11) . The show will resume its usual episodes this Tuesday at normal hours.
This week’s episode begins with an elaborate Cheerios dance routine to Katy Perry’s ‘California Gurls’ (complete with sparklers and BMX tricks) in anticipation of the upcoming competition. Sue, as usual, is not pleased with the team and decides she needs to outdo her past performances.
Unfortunately, she decides shooting a cheerleader (mainly Brittany) out of a canon is the best way to take the routine up a notch. When her idea gets shot down, she retaliates and pulls the Cheerios from the football championship game. Sue also issues an ultimatum to Quinn, Santana and Brittany: choose the glee club or Cheerios. They choose the glee club and let Sue lose the championship title.
Finn and the rest of the football squad are getting prepared for their upcoming championship game, but end up fighting over – you guessed it – the glee club. In order to resolve the bullying, Coach Beiste and Mr. Schu make several members of the football team join the glee club for one week.
To bring the team together, Finn and Puck try to put the past (Quinn and Rachel) behind them and become allies. When Mr. Schu suggests that the glee club step in for the football team’s halftime show, the glee club puts an interesting spin on Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’ and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ ‘Heads Will Roll.’
But, the bullying doesn’t stop there. The school’s hockey team gives the football team a taste of their own medicine, throwing red slushy in their faces, which leads to half of the team quitting. Rachel and the rest of the glee girls decide to help out the boys and join the team themselves. Not to be shown up, the ex-footballers step in at the last minute to star in the glee club’s halftime show and finish off the football game. The episode ends with less bullying, although the footballers decide they don’t want to permanently join the glee club. In a surprising twist, Quinn and Finn reminisce about their past romance and share a romantic kiss.
Will Quinn and Finn get back together? Glee’s next episode focuses on the most romantic year of the day – Valentine’s Day! Stay tuned for more Glee!
