Cue Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke's "Blurred lines" performance, cuz this week on Glee New Directions took on the task of learning to twerk as a way to get a leg up on the competition at nationals! More on where that ends up below.
But on a much more serious note, transgender student Unique (Alex Newell) struggles with using the gender-specific bathrooms at McKinley High and is teased about it. Once her fellow New Directioners get wind of Unique's plight, they join her crusade and stand up to bullies, but in the end Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) is the one who finds a solution. He caves to Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) and agrees to give up the "twerking" movement if Unique can have access to the faculty unisex bathroom. Will tells Unique that it's not about giving up, but rather accepting that change takes time and one really must find one's own happiness and comfort.
Meanwhile in New York, Rachel (Lea Michele) is still dealing with the loss of Finn (Cory Monteith). Feeling a need to change things up, she convinces Kurt (Chris Colfer) to come with her to get a tattoo. Sadly, Kurt's tattoo doesn't go as planned. He wakes up in the morning to realize it says, "it's get better" and not what he wanted, "it gets better." When Kurt reveals his tattoo debacle to Rachel, she confesses that she actually didn't get one herself. Kurt is clearly upset, but Rachel convinces him to go back and get it tweaked.
Kurt gets the tattoo fixed--along with a tongue ring, since the parlor is running a special. Kurt's tattoo ends up saying, "it got Bette Midler," but the big scoop of the night is that Rachel actually did get a tattoo. In the last scene of the episode, she reveals a discreet, small tattoo on her rib cage that simply says "Finn."
