Needless to say, if you haven't seen it yet, come back and read this later.
Now that we have that out of the way...
I was disappointed by last week's episode, but this week redeemed itself. As always, the Glee characters are a bit overblown and over the top. This week many of the characters are shown to be completely ignorant about sex. Brittany thought she was pregnant, because a stork was building a nest in her yard. And we all know about Finn, thinking that making out in the hot tub can lead to pregnancy (Love that kid, but he's not the sharpest tack in the box).
Like teenage drinking from the last episode, this week Glee also tackled a subject that there is no solution to. Statistics prove that kids have sex. They prove that abstinence-only education doesn't work. So what do we do? Holly Holiday's solution is arming kids with as much information as possible. (I loved how she gave Lauren and Puck a thumbs up on their sex tape idea, before informing them that they'd be arrested for kiddie porn).
The two highlights of the week were Burt Hummel and Santana.
Kurt is completely uncomfortable with sex and sexuality (though he's REAL good with his sexual orientation). Thanks to Blaine clueing Burt in, the two have the talk. And it's the type of talk ALL kids need to have. Not just the mechanics (he had pamphlets for that), but the emotional consequences of being intimate. I heart him!!!
And that brings me to Santana. We all knew it. She loves Brittany!! She's loves another woman and is too scared of how the world will take it to express that love. It broke my heart when Brittany chose Artie over her. I cried. I really did.
