GleeCap: Lights Out

I'm not going to recap the entire episode.. just a few parts.

First, Becky told Figgins the truth.  Good on her!

And now what's really got me unsettled.  Ryder.

The character disclosed that he was abused by a babysitter.  A teenage female babysitter.

What do the other boys say?  That's not abuse!  It's you getting lucky!

(Cue so much facepalming)

Ryder finally stopped arguing  and mocking proclaimed that he was a stud, and the thing was dropped.  The girls tried to come to his defense, but no one would hear them.  Shue only said that he has to report it.

I don't know where they are going with this.

  • Is the jackass reaction to highlight victim blaming?
  • Will Shue and Emma step in and set those boys straight?
  • Will Bieste slap some sense into them?
I have a feeling that this isn't the last we're seeing of this.  The reactions were a bit too ridiculousness   They were over blown.  Meant for the audience to see how stupid it all sounded.

I pray he comes back to this.  it's too big an issue not to.
