Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Terri Schuester (credit only)
Emma Pillsbury-Howell (credit only)
Burt Hummel (credit only)


Saddened by the death of the Warblers' mascot bird, Kurt speaks out against Blaine singing every single solo. To his surprise, Blaine agrees and insists they perform duets, privately adding that's also an excuse to spend time together. Blaine also convinces Kurt's father it's time to contribute to his sexual education. Sue successfully spreads a rumor so as to trick Will into opting for originally composed songs, a very tall order, while her choir caters to the jury members' bizarre tastes. Fin coaches Rachel to write from real life emotions. Written by KGF Vissers

Blaine Anderson: Kurt, there is a moment when you say to yourself, Oh, there you are. I've been looking for you forever.
[takes Kurt's hand]
Blaine Anderson: Watching you do "Blackbird" this week... that was a moment for me. About you. You moved me, Kurt, and this duet would just be an excuse to spend more time with you.

Glee, "Original Song"
22 May 2011 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

OMG, I LOVE this episode! I've watched it over and over, to the tune of at least 50 times! Talk about a groundbreaking episode! And the previous reviewer was so right: the Finn/Rachel/Quinn triad struggle--which does serve a purpose--was getting a bit stale (and kind of a downer). This episode raises all the "Glee" love, optimism, and excitement that this show is known for. Wow. How can you fault this episode? Note: You can't. There is Mercedes' "Hell to the No" (exceptional!), Puck's "Big- Ass Heart" (so great!), Blaine's upbeat "Misery," Kurt's gut-wrenching "Blackbird" and Blaine's response, the KISS (need I say more?), the super Regionals' performances by the Warblers and New Direction. Wow. I actually have this entire episode especially linked on my desktop. I can't WAIT till the DVD comes out!
