Glee couldn’t resist a nod to their fellow cultural phenomenon, “Twilight” and “Lady Gaga” this week. It wasn’t all fun and games though, there were some serious and heartwarming moments too, including Kurt’s and Finn’s storyline which opened a dialogue on the show about tolerance and acceptance.
As the show opened, Tina was reprimanded by Principal Figgins for her Goth look. He told her that a strict dress code would lead to less vampirism. As Tina is forced to find a new look, Mr. Schuester assigns Lady Gaga tunes for the week.
The ladies (and Kurt) take advantage of the assignment and create costumes based on some of Gaga’s most famous looks. Their performance of “Bad Romance” was one of the best of the season too. And, most importantly, in the end, Tina found a way to keep her goth look she convinced Figgins that her father was a vampire and that Asian vamps are the cruelest of them all.
