Glee Season 2 Episode 7 (Gwyneth Paltrow sings "Umbrella") Recap


This episode has been talked about in the media for a while, as it is Gwyneth Paltrow's Glee debut as substitute teacher Holly Holliday, who sings an Umbrella mashup with Will Schuester... Before that though, Holly was introduced during a Spanish Class and the things she said in Spanish just made me laugh... I'm glad they made the character to be the "fun", "carefree" teacher as Gwyneth Paltrow hasn't been doing much comedy lately.

Will is sick with flu, so Kurt asks Holly to help out in Glee club and she kindly obliges, performing Cee Lo's "Forget You" with the Glee Club. Despite Rachel's initial dislike of Holly, being able to perform a song she likes changes her heart. Although "Umbrella" was the most talked about song this episode, the duo's rendition of Chicago's finale song was stunning. Definitely underrated- it was fun, sassy and loved the guns at the end.

Not much happened this episode actually apart from the fact that Sue makes herself headmistress of the school after Figgin's gets sick- Terri temporarily returned to try to seduce Will, and Kurt and Blaine are going out... 

This week's plot was a bit weak, but the good songs definitely make up for it. Check out video:
