Glee Season 3 Episode 19 Review: Cliche ‘Prom-asaurus’
There was more prom drama last night on Glee. Brittany (Heather Morris) needed to step up as class president; Rachel’s (Lea Michele) held a pity party and Quinn (Dianna Agron) was still bent on being prom queen. The episode was a bit cliché but in the end, everyone was a winner.
There was a hefty dose of President Brittany last night. We finally got a glimpse of her role as senior class president, and we haven’t missed anything. Principal Figgins (Iqbal Theba) criticized her for ignoring her post. Her solution was to spearhead prom planning. She nixed the idea of “Castles in the Sky” since it is too dangerous to build a castle on a cloud and decided to go with a Dinosaur theme instead. Sure it was weird but at least we were entertained.
After Rachel’s dreams were shattered last week the only thing she could look forward to was prom. When Finn (Cory Monteith) and Quinn were both nominated for prom court Rachael had a melt down. She wasn’t happy for Quinn but upset because she thought everything was slipping away from her. Rachael decided to host an anti-prom party instead. It seemed like typical selfish Rachel to do her own thing, but I cut her a break this week since she was going through a pretty rough time.
Quinn made strides in physical therapy but she didn’t want to tell anyone until she was stronger. Finn found her walking and thought she lied about her strength to get sympathy votes. The argument with Quinn made him realize that he should be with Rachel. Finn apologized to Rachael and escorted her to the real prom.
Brittany appointed Santana (Naya Rivera) and Quinn to count the prom queen votes. Finn was king and Quinn won by one vote. It was always Quinn’s dream to be prom queen but instead of taking the crown she wrote Rachel’s name in the envelope. It was a sweet gesture from Quinn and Santana. The two went on to sing a beautiful “Take My Breath Away” for Rachel and Finn’s dance as king and queen. As they performed Quinn stood up, it was a bit over the top but still emotional.
It was a cliché prom but Brittany’s Dinosaurs were on hand to remind us that it was Glee after all. Next week The New Directions take nationals in a two-hour episode. Hopefully the ending will be as happy as last night’s.
