Videos of Glee From Episode "The Rhodes Not Taken"

Glee-Ful Highlights and Video From This Week's Episode!

This week's Glee is all about Kristin Chenoweth's guest performance. She is unbearably adorable (not to mention hilarious) as a former glee club star and Mr. Schu's high school crush. Seriously, can Glee just keep her? We also got some more relationship drama between Rachel and Finn, and one showstopping ensemble number.

As always, be sure to check out the Glee Club in the Buzz Community for even more gleeky fun. Ready for some highlights? Just

.

  • Let's start with the obvious: Kristin Chenoweth! The Emmy winner covered all the bases this week, providing the perfect blend of comedy and powerhouse performances as April Rhodes. She is so impressive taking on country with the whole glee club, and I also loved her side-by-side sing-off with Rachel. However, the winner of the night goes to her duet with Mr. Schu to Heart's "Alone." So good, so classic. Check it out below.
  • Though Kristin stole the show this week, the New Directions' Rachel situation was also a big theme. The glee club can't survive without her, but Rachel will settle for nothing less than stardom. Finn eventually decides to use his powers of persuasion (aka shameless flirting) to get her back. Finn's pulled some douchey (though typically high school) moves on Rachel before, but this week he reaches new heights. The look on Rachel's face when she finds out that Quinn is pregnant is too sad.
  • Glee always has some great one-liners, and Puck has one of my favorites this week: "That Rachel chick makes me want to light myself on fire, but she can sing." Well said, Puck.
  • Back to Kristin Chenoweth, who also had some of the funniest moments. I love her opening scene at her "house," but the best is when she teaches Kurt to drink. Biggest laugh-out-loud moment of the night? A tipsy Kurt tells Emma, "Oh Bambi, I cried so hard when those hunters shot your mommy." He then proceeds to puke all over her shoes. Priceless.
  • Finally, the finale. The episode's final performance of "Somebody to Love" gives me goosebumps and is very much reminiscent of the pilot's "Don't Stop Believin.'" Plus, it's so sweet to see Rachel finally reunited with her gleeks and I love Mercedes's solo. I've admittedly watched this video more than a few times this morning already, and I'm not surprised that the single is climbing the iTunes charts. Check out the video for yourself!

i hated this episode. like they would sing a song like that at a highschool? how great for an alcoholic to sing a song about being an alcoholic and sleeping around.i know there's a bit of a moral but it was weak.loved that sue wasn't in this episode much - really hate her character a lot. and glad that he is finally questioning his wife about her lies.

<b>redchick152</b>: I totally agree with you! Mr. Schuester needs to sing more on this show.<b>pianoteacher1</b>: I also thought Kristin Chenoweth was a better singer than Lea Michele (who plays Rachel) in that scene. I don't know if Lea held back a little because her character is obviously a little more inexperienced, or if the song was just not her ideal song. I'm going to go with the latter...Lea Michele is better at hitting the low notes, while Kristin Chenoweth can basically hit the whistle register. I've been a huge fan of both Lea and Kristin for a long time though, and I thought that they both did an amazing job.

Just a little observation, when Rachel and April are singing the duet, you can obviously tell that Chenoweth is so much better. It's not just the voice from that little body, but her musicality and performance make her such a great singer. She has attitude and pizzazz (?) that Rachel still needs to mature into.

@JulieJean - I think it was to show that Rachel finally got everything she wanted but she wasn't happy so that's why she quit & went back to Glee??? That's what I got from it anyway. "Somebody To Love" is one of my favourite songs of all time, I got chills when they sang it. The only thing I kinda wasn't happy with was Finn & Quinn singing 'Don't Stop Believing' that will always be a Rachel/Finn song!!!

I'm glad that the episode took a break from the whole pregnancy problem. I love the final performance! I'm glad Rachel is back in Glee, I just wonder what her relationship with Finn is going to be like.

I'm a bit confused. What's the point of Sue giving Rachel full artistic control if she quits and goes back to Glee? I love me some Sue, but looking back, the scene is kinda pointless.

Yeah, also, too little "Alone"!!!

Wow, I agree with everyone, can Chenoweth stays on this show as regular? She is so good at the musical and dramatic numbers, and I still miss her from Pushing Diasies!!!!!They should just kill off the wife, so Will can have a love triangle with her and the woman with the "mental problem". Looks like my wish not gonna come true cuz the wife's gonna be working in the school:(My problem is I have no idea why Will is still with her (except out of obligation, which is fine i guess). She is whiny, devious, petty, greedy....etc etc. Show us at least one good side of her!! It also makes like Will less because he has poor judgement of character and is kinda like a wimp. But he's still very cute nonetheless.The episode ranks at the top, together with the Pilot! The last musical numbers also gives me chills and goosebumps, and there's even more Mercedes! And about Finn, yeah, he's kinda manipulative, but I dare anyone who will not fall for his charm! I was literally melting in front of the TV, I don't know what I would do if he's right in front of me!!!:)

I really loved the Rachel/April Cabaret song. I thought that was just beautiful.
californiagirlx7 californiagirlx7 6 years
Yeah I also loved the April/Will duet to "Alone" as well as the "Somebody to Love" performance. I wish both went on longer! This episode was better than the last two episodes, but I think the pilot and the second episode are the best so far.

Am I the only one who dislikes Rachel more and more? She really has a diva complex that is getting on my nerves. She is so wishy-washy about returning to the club and every time we see her, she looks as if she is going to burst into tears. Kristen Chenoweth was a breath of fresh air... we needed some pep after Rachel's dramatics.
