Glee-Cap: Trio.
by Robert Lawlor - Mar 04, 2014

Remember that song that said three was a magic number? Well, tonight, Gleeks - three is most certainly a gleeriffic number as the spotlight is full of trios - some trios pair up for a little fun, while others will be fighting it out in usual Glee fashion. It's just another night full of songs, rivalry, and everything we could possibly want. Strap yourself in for a magical episode, Gleeks, because three is spreading its magic all over Glee. Will and Emma get caught by Becky in a compromising position, and it comes to the surface (when Sue calls them to her office) that they are trying to have a baby. Blaine, Sam, and Tina present "Jumpin, Jumpin" by Destiny's Child to the glee club and it becomes clear that time is ticking between Nationals and graduation, so Mr. Schue tells them to cherish the times and the memories. Rachel turns to Elliot after the fight with her roomies, and in her own Rachel Berry way - takes over his life and his apartment. When Elliot pops by Rachel rehearsal, the two duet on Heart's "Barracuda" and their new friendship seems cemented. ..Hummelberry, who? Sam and Blaine try on their cap and gowns, which cement how soon enough their time at McKinley, will end, and brings on Tina's constant waterworks. Blaine suggests the idea of a lock-in, so they will have something to remember once time has passed, which is something Tina and Sam jump to do. (more...)
