El Viaje Misterioso de Suzy Pepper

Close-up on Kurt. "Sing to me everything you feel." He's talking to Finn. Finn's trying to think of a song that will communicate just how freaked out and uncomfortable he is. But Finn can't sing to a dude, and he gets kind of shouty about it, telling Kurt, "I'm sick of and tired of people pushing me to be somebody I'm not." Kurt: "Your lashing out at me is fantastically compelling and inappropriate." Finn apologizes for the yelling, noting that he's under tons of pressure. Kurt: "Girls. They're your problem. They're up, they're down. Girls." Left unsaid is the implicit "Who needs 'em?" Finn's real problem is that he's sad that he's never going to know his own daughter, and that she'll never know that he really did love her and want to take care of her. (Because, as you may recall, Quinn has decided that the baby is being given up for adoption. Although Quinn hasn't told him that the plan is to give the baby to Terri.) Kurt thinks the answer is to let it all out. As he tells Finn this, he places his hand on Finn's shoulder. Finn asks exactly what he's talking about, clearly concerned that "letting it out" is slang for something he'd rather not know about. But Kurt really means that he should express his feelings through song. "I'll Stand By You," by the Pretenders, to be precise. So Kurt plays the song, and Finn sings it out to the empty seats in the auditorium. And the invisible chorus on the stage backs him up. It's nice, and it clearly works, because Finn keeps singing the song in his own bedroom, looking at the sonogram of Drizzle on his MacBook. His mother enters his bedroom and finds him singing to his laptop. Finn's clearly never been caught watching porn on his laptop, because he doesn't instinctively snap the computer closed. Instead, he sits up and does a really half-assed job of trying to prevent his mother from seeing the screen. She realizes what she's seeing, and sits down next to him. She asks if Quinn is pregnant, and he starts sobbing. She grabs hold of him and tells him it's going to be okay. She's a cool mom. And she's wearing a textured denim vest that is both scary and amazing at the same time. Commercials

School hallway. Finn has told Quinn that his mother knows about the baby. She's freaking out. He tries to reassure her that his mother won't tell her mother, but she won't hear it: "You're wrong, I'm right. I'm smart, you're dumb." Well, at least one quarter of that is correct. Tina, Mercedes, and Kurt are witnessing this from a few feet away. Tina complains about the baby drama, and Mercedes feels bad for them. Kurt just sees an opportunity, and he leaves the girls, promising to report back later. Kurt approaches Finn as Quinn storms off. Kurt: "How do you explain her constant irritation with you? It's because she's a girl." Finn thinks it's the pregnancy hormones. Kurt: "It's enough to make you want to give up women altogether." Oh, honey, you're young, so I'll forgive you. But in a few years, you're going to learn that being gay doesn't mean you have to trash women. Finn laughs along, half-heartedly, and then tells Kurt that singing to the baby really did make him feel better. "I owe you one, dude." Kurt looks like he knows exactly how he'd like to call in that favor.
