And from what I can tell, I am so, so in the minority on this--but.

Maybe I'm biased because I hated Lindsey from like episode two of The Glee Project, but I really don't think that performance ("Anything Goes/Anything You Can Do") was all that great. I mean, there were no real problems with it, it was executed flawlessly from a TECHNICAL standpoint, but it was Whatever. I can get Kurt and Rachel being overwhelmed by the lack of experience on their resumes compared to those kids, but the performance they witnessed was not as good/compelling as many, many, many of the things they've participated in as part of New Directions, either singly, together, or with the rest of the group. "Some People" may not be Kurt's greatest number ever, but I would say it was better than the NYADA kids' performance. Ditto something like "Telephone" or "Hit Me Baby One More Time" for Rachel, or this week's "You Can't Stop the Beat" for the whole group. Honestly I had a hard time finding a less-than-stellar group number at all, and I have a feeling this one's gonna grow on me--whereas "Anything Goes" is probably going to get skipped almost as often as "The Living Years."

Point being, while the Hummelberry scene in the car was very touching and I'm glad they're ridiculously good friends now ("You make me wanna be your boyfriend"!), I feel like it was much like Kurt's panic over Blaine transferring--only emotionally justified, and not actually necessary.

Also since other people have said it, I feel a bit less racist saying this--the "cocoa babies" line squicked me. Just. Ew. Creepy enough to talk about makin' babies in high school, it's just kind of doubly weird with the race thing thrown in there, and I don't care how confident he makes Mercedes feel, they've been dating for all of what? Three and a half months at the most? And it's possible that he's just the Sam rebound anyway? It'd be one thing to have a semi-serious conversation when the two of them were alone ("So, um, hey, do you want to have kids someday? If we're even still together, when we're WAY WAY older? Just kinda curious..."), but just randomly blurting it in the middle of the hall in front of Jacob Ben Israel's camera? I'm just kind of not okay with that.

(Also it reminded me of that episode of Family Guy when Lois was modeling and Cleveland said he wanted to make caramel-colored babies with her--that was intended to feel skeevy. So maybe that's influencing me a bit, but STILL.)
