'Glee' Recap: Meltdowns, Train Wrecks and Other 'Diva' Behavior
inner divas, but what the episode really explores is the developing and shifting friendships of the characters -- to a meltdown and restart between Kurt and Rachel, to Tina's feelings for Blaine and the train wreck that that causes, the changing relationship between Emma and Finn now that he's part of the adult world, and the post-relationship relationship between Santana and Brittany. Being a diva is all well and good, but the fallout for those around you is considerable. Now that Rachel Berry is the Winter Showcase winner, she's been taking her diva status to whole new heights by making ridiculous demands and basking in the glow of her new hoard of sycophants. Kurt, fed up with this, lashes out in the loft and challenges her to a sing off, revealing finally that in their last showdown ("Defying Gravity," during season 1) he threw the competition to spare his father, thus shattering Rachel's sense of self since she says she built her confidence on that first big win. Her admirers at school continue to puff her up by taking Kurt down, but even in the heat of battle Rachel stands up for him so not all is lost. The pair take on "Bring Him Home" from Les Miserables, gliding seamlessly from one to the other for a sea of agog NYADA students.
