“Glee” Season 6 Episode 6 “What the World Needs Now” aired on Friday, Feb. 6, 2015, at 9:00 p.m. on FOX. The show still swings back and forth from awesome to mediocre. This week’s episode is on the upswing. Read on for the recap.

“Glee’s” normal episode is a mish-mash of crazy storylines with a lot of a crazy things happening all at the same time. However, in this episode, the show pulls a tight episode with the crazies on full-on mode. It focuses on the wedding preparations of Santana and Brittany and the budding romance between Sam and Rachel. What’s good about these storylines is that it had none of silliness that annoys us and treated it with a lot of maturity that a lot of people can relate to.

Sam and Rachel continue to dance around their growing closeness, but both are afraid to commit before giving it a shot. And while this is happening, Mercedes Jones comes back to Lima with a number 89 place on iTunes. She returns to McKinley to convince Rachel to try out and audition for a Broadway show and to get another chance with Sam.

But the real stars of this episode are Brittany and Santana. It’s revealed that Brittany’s real father is Stephen Hawking, which wasn’t really a big of a surprise. Moreover, Brittany disguises herself as a nurse to get close to Santana’s grandmother, who is against her granddaughter’s sexual preference.  However, all this backfires, and Santana’s grandmother remain unmoved by the big production and would still not attend their engagement party.

This episode managed to remain crazy and overstuffed without making the audience feel that they are not able to follow the story. It’s a wonderful thing that the show managed to highlight the supporting characters and show why they matter on the program. But that’s what you get with “Glee.” It tries to be everything and misses on some points but hits on a lot of them. Hopefully, the succeeding episodes will continue to be not only fun to watch but also memorable for the faithful fans of the show.
