Glee’s season two premiere kicked off with updates from the summer via Jacob’s webumentary. We learned that Finn and Rachel are more in love than ever, Puck had a vasectomy, and, shockingly, Tina dumped Artie for Mike!
We also met the new football coach (it seems Ken had a meltdown after his break up with Emma), Shannon Biste (pronounced “beast”). When Biste’s need for more football funding threatens the Glee Club and Cheerios, Sue and Mr. Schue join forces. To Sue’s dismay though, Will eventually comes to his senses and realizes that Biste just wants to belong and isn’t that bad after all.
In order to excel to Nationals, the glee club realizes they need some need blood, which is when Rachel discovers Sunshine, a small girl with a big voice. This, of course, freaked Rachel out and caused her to sabotage Sunshine’s audition by sending her to a crack house. With a renewed sense of vengeance for the glee club, Sue gave the new Vocal Adrenaline coach a head’s up about Sunshine, who gladly jumped ship after Rachel’s nasty trick.
In the meantime, the guys recruit Sam (Chord Overstreet),the new transfer student with a great voice. But, when Biste kicks Finn off the football team (she thinks his idea to get Artie on the team was a cruel joke, but Artie did want on the team to win Tina back), Sam steps in as the new quarterback and decides to skip joining New Directions.
The highlight of the show, as usual, was the music! Sunshine and Rachel’s bathroom rendition of Beyonce and Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” was awesome. The gang’s version of Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ “Empire State of Mind” was great too but, aren’t we all a little sick of that song by now? And Sam’s version of Travie McCoy’s “Billionaire” makes me hope he finds his way back to the glee club!
