Welcome to an all-new Glee pre-cap,where we post all the spoilery bits on future Glee episodes we can find – and the occasionally juicy rumor!
(MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD!)
Fresh off the heels of “The First Time,” November 15th’s, Glee Episode 03×06, “Mash-Off” will feature a killer showdown between the New Directions and former Vocal Adrenaline coach, Shelby Corcoran’s new vocal group, The Troubletones.
After Finn preps Rory, McKinley High’s newest exchange student, for competition by offering up the big solo, he also teaches Rory his finest lesson in trash-talking the competition. (The Troubletones) Santana, in her standard bitchy way, challenges the New Directions to an old-fashioned after school rumble, dodgeball style.
The game play is Troubletones vs. New Directions, and the final two players left standing are Santana and Finn. Cue a mash-up performance of Blondie’s “One Way or Another” and Pat Benatar’s “Hit Me With Your Best Shot.” Santana wins, but takes a cheap shot to Rory’s face in the process, which causes a nose bleed. Finn goes ballistic. (Glee Wetpaint)
On top of having Santana and The Troubletones to deal with, not everyone is enthused about Blaine joining New Directions, and they won’t be afraid to let their grievances be heard. (EOnline)
The race for class president is in full swing, and Rachel (Lea Michele), Brittany (Heather Morris), and Kurt (Chris Colfer) aren’t the only ones in the running! McKinley High hockey player Rick “The Stick” Nelson has also joined the race for class presidency and he’s brought his mullet. His soap-box? Teachers will now have to answer to the students, instead of the other way around! We’re also hearing rumors that by the end of the episode, Rachel withdraws from the running and goes as far as to pledge her vote to Kurt. Of course, we can’t have a presidential campaign run by Brittany without “TVs and Topless Tuesdays,” right? I know who I’m voting for!
Meanwhile, in the race for Congress, Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) tries her best to launch her smear campaign against Burt Hummel (Mike O’Malley), claiming that he married a donkey. (Yes. She’s serious) In a far fetched effort to fight back and dig up dirt on Sue, Will (Matthew Morrison) discovers that as a young girl, Sue once played the lead in Oklahoma! As TV Guidereported, a flashback shows 16-year-old Sue on stage belting out the title song fromOklahoma!, a performance savaged by one brutal critic from her school newspaper. “Her little heart was broken,” sighs Jane. “Will tells Sue, ‘Poor little Susie Sylvester was told she wasn’t good, and now she’s got to punish the world.’ Sue claims she once loved performing, but in order to alleviate the pain she suffered, wants to shut down all glee clubs and other performing arts programs.
Remember way back in Episode 4 (Pot O’ Gold), where we saw Puck (Mark Salling) and Shelby (Idina Menzel) in a full-on make-out session? To add to that already creepy situation, let’s cue the dream sequence rendition of Van Halen’s “Hot for Teacher” when Miss Shelby substitute teaches his geometry class. If they keep this up, Beth is going to have a new sibling, minus the surrogate by the end of the season.
To add to the already insane amount of drama, The Glee Project’s belter Lindsay Pearce is back, making her second appearance in her role as Harmony in this episode, attempting to scare Rachel out of applying to NYADA.
Perhaps a bit predictably, Sectionals this year finds the New Directions pitted against Shelby’s new girl-group The Troubletones, and of course, that invokes an entirely new drama. Mercedes, of course, nominates herself as president of the Troubletones which she does win by majority vote, minus Santana and of course, that means Brittany as well as they come in pairs.
Cue more Santana trashing Finn, but Finn’s had enough. He decides to hit Santana where it hurts and tells her to come out of the closet and to stop attempting to make everyone else as miserable as she is. Of course, someone overhears this banter and takes it right to one of the congressional candidates, whom launches his “Sue Supports Lesbians” campaign, even hinting that Sue herself may play for team rainbow. He goes as far as to talk bluntly about Sue having a lesbian for a head-cheerleader, with photos of Santana used as a mudslinging device. Santana is rightfully devastated. Santana can barely keep her composure as theTroubletones perform their Adele mash-up. Seeing Finn in the audience sends her over the edge, and livid that he’s outed her to the world, slaps the Hell out of him. (Source)

What do you think about all of this drama? Do you support Puck’s fetish for older women? How do you think the New Directions will handle their new-found competition? Do you think Santana deserved to be outed, or is she getting a raw deal?
