Surprisingly, very little of this music hints at the big cliffhanger from last week’s “Thanksgiving.” If you recall, Marley (Melissa Benoist) passed out right at the end of “Gangnam Style,” presumably from starvation and/or pills. The show really does have to address something like that. After all, we don’t even know if the girl survives!
Of course she does. This is “Glee,” not “The Walking Dead.”
Whatever the case, Marley’s troubles are not going to be addressed directly in song. What will?
They have to be dancing during that, right?
Based on the tone of the next song, a Rachel solo of “Being Good Isn’t Good Enough,” Cassandra may have won the singing/dance off.
Kurt (Chris Colfer) then joins in the melancholy of NYC with “Being Alive.”
That is a lot of sadness from the big city. Maybe that’s why it’s time to return to Lima and a group performance of “Don’t Dream It’s Over” by the New Directions.
