What secrets are revealed when the power goes out at McKinley High?
Glee's "Lights Out" episode had a lot of great moments--from silly to sweet to moving and all things in between. Here are a couple of our favorites (cut the power and cue the acoustic performances):
A moment that left us breathless: Ryder reveals his dark childhood secret.
In the wake of Ryder's (Blake Jenner) catfish relationship with Katie, he decides to open up about his trouble trusting girls and explains why. After singing REM's "Everybody Hurts" to his fellow "New Directions-ers," he explains his secret. "When I was 11, I was molested by my babysitter; It kind of messed me up a bit. I think I have trouble trusting girls because of it," he shared. But Ryder's shocking confession does not get the reaction most would expect, as Sam (Chord Overstreet) and the other guys congratulate him for getting on with an older girl.
The moment that made us want to cry: Kittyreveals her childhood secret to Ryder.
Following Ryder's confession, Kitty (Becca Tobin) comforts him when she reveals that she too was molested by a friend's older brother at a sleepover. But her hurt spilled over to bigger problems when no one believed her and after being teased so much, she eventually had to change schools. These two now seemed to have bonded and go out for pasta.
We just got to bust a move: New Directions does a "Stomp the Yard" rendition of "We Will Rock You."
We just can't stop laughing: Sue sings the praises of her newfound freedom and goes head-to-head with Blaine.
Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) seems a bit too happy about the fact that she is now a "Freelance Champion," working as a personal trainer getting paid twice as much and not having to deal with students. Blaine (Darren Criss) confesses he wanted to bring her down her while begging her to come back! She slams him in typical Sylvester style, but we do get the feeling that she is beginning to miss McKinley High.
The Bonehead move of the week: Ryder passes up a real date with Kitty in order to talk to his catfish girlfriend Katie?
The Ah moment: Rachel, Kurt and Santana (with Isabelle Wright) shine at the Ballet.
