Fox’s Glee has tackled a pretty big group of hot-button subjects in it’s sophomore year on the network. So far, the show has touched on teen pregnancy, handicapped accessibility in high schools, bigotry, and this week the next taboo subject to hit is teen crushes with teachers.
In this week’s episode, entitled “Ballad”, Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison) splits the Club into pairs to sing their favorite ballad, but when one kid gets sick, he’s forced to step in and winds up in a sticky situation. Meanwhile, Finn and Quinn have to face the music when dinner with her parents (guest stars Gregg Henry and Charlotte Ross) goes awry.
Check out two exclusive clips after the jump. In the first, Will and Rachel (Leah Michele) sing “Endless Love” as an example of a ballad for the other students, while Rachel realizes something new about him. In the second clip, Will remembers the first time a student had a crush on him, and things got weird.
Watch Glee’s “Ballad” this Wednesday, November 18 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), only on FOX.
