While “Glee” can always put a smile on our faces, our favorite episodes are the ones that tug on our heartstrings and make us laugh.
The Oct. 5 religion-themed episode, “Grilled Cheesus” does just that. When Finn (Cory Monteith) sees the face of God on his sandwich thanks to a George Foreman grill mishap, hilarity ensues… and when Kurt’s (Chris Colfer) dad, Burt (Mike O’Malley) falls victim to a heart attack, we shed more than a few tears.
Don’t miss this one, Gleeks. You’ll be treated to some heartwrenching performances, a ton of laughs, and some new insight into Kurt.
We asked our Twitter followers and Facebook friends to send us questions about the episode. Here’s all the scoop!
Does Sam Evans (Chord Overstreet) join the glee club? -Dan
Sam isn’t in New Directions yet, but you will see him in “Grilled Cheesus.” He’s not having a very good day, though… and we’re guessing that what happens to Sam in this episode is going to ultimately lead him to join glee.
Any Finnchel? -Evie
Yep. Finn and Rachel will have a very serious discussion about their future children. Surprisingly, Rachel’s plans for baby Finnchels don’t scare Finn off at all… and he’s rewarded for his maturity.
Will the next episode be better than the Britney one? -Quintus
All due respect to the legendary Britney Spears… yes. “Grilled Cheesus” is one of our all-time favorites. It’s particularly great because the music is informed by the plot, instead of the plot being worked around the song choices.
Does Rachel have ANOTHER solo? -Cameron
Lea Michele sounds beautiful singing Barbra Streisand’s “Papa Can You Hear Me.” Our only nitpick is that it’s the third week in a row that she’s cried during her solo. It’s time for her to sing a happier tune.
Does the non-believer in the episode have a main storyline? -Quinn
Kurt is the resident atheist in the Glee club, and yes, most of the episode revolves around his relationship with his father. In some of the most emotional scenes, we even get to see young Kurt, played by Adam Kolkin. Kolkin and Colfer look so much alike that we’re a little creeped out. Nobody is cloning humans yet, right?
Speaking of non-believers, Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) falls into that category, as well – and even as she lobbies to keep New Directions from singing about God, she may find that her older sister inspires a change of heart.
Will we get any insight into Puck/Quinn? -Amanda
We were a little surprised that we didn’t see more of Quinn (Dianna Agron) in this episode, since she has been on a religious journey since Season 1. You will, however, get to hear Puck (Mark Salling) absolutely rock out on “Only the Good Die Young.” It’s even more awesome than his “Sweet Caroline” performance.
