I used the sunlight-effect lamp. I read over Mary Flanner's Glee episode reactions again. She was so perceptive about the characters from what was known at the time, and what was shown about them in the episode. One thing she noticed in "Heart" was that Puck's sorority girls had shirts saying "Lima University" on them. So Lima University existed in the middle of the third season. It's those little details that are the quickest establishing set-up. I completely missed that.
I watched "Thor" and took it back to the library. I went to the grocery store.
Later: Mom and I watched "Mash Off," "I Kissed a Girl" and "Hold on to Sixteen." When "Mash Off" was over, I said, "Well, that's it," and went into the kitchen.
Mom said, "We have to watch the next one!"
I laughed, and said, "I had to wait a week to find out what happened." Mom insisted on watching "I Kissed a Girl." Then she felt like she was in suspense about what would happen at Sectionals, so she wanted to watch "Hold on to Sixteen." I said I didn't think there was suspense between "I Kissed a Girl" and "Hold on to Sixteen." I had thought Mom would be in suspense after watching "Mash Off." I didn't make her wait a week for that one. I was tempted to let her wait for a day or a few days to find out what happened in Sectionals. I don't mind watching a few episodes in a row, though.
Mom almost cried when Santana's abuela rejected her. I think Mom was really getting into the story. I said I was in the fandom when that happened, and heard that a lot of lesbians cried, too. Also, that they and I were furious with Finn for taking charge of Santana's life. It took me at least several months to get over being mad at Finn, and I was mad about that episode for a very long time. I felt better when I saw the "Santana Coming Out" deleted scene from "I Kissed a Girl," and really wished that had been in the episode. Santana came out to the Cheerios! in her own way. She had some control of the situation.
Mom has now watched nearly fifty more episodes than I expected her to. I'm surprised she's stuck with it this long.
