I'll just copy what I wrote in the Amph: For the episode, it can be summed up as: NPH + MM = vocal gold NPH + JL = snarkiness gold Artie + realistic-ish story = heart-breaking Idina Menzel = more please On the spectacular Ms Menzel, I'm just disappointed that we couldn't get a reunion between her and Kristin Chenowyeth. That was a very Whedon-esque moment. He knows just how to edit those scenes for maximum impact. Oh, and I'm pretty sure that 90% of people that watch Glee picked what Idina's role in the overall story was 5 seconds into her appearing on screen. Edit: Oops, missed some spoiler tagging.
