In “The Hurt Locker, Part 1″, when several show choirs plan to gather at McKinley for a technically meaningless “invitational” competition, Rachel worries that Will’s (Matthew Morrison) Vocal Adrenaline team will be so stellar they will blow her still-struggling New Directions team out of the water.
In a bid to prevent a spirit-crushing defeat, she implores Will to take it easy on them and asks him to purposefully underperform at the event. He agrees, but when Sue (Jane Lynch) gets wind of the collusion she takes matters into her own hands.
Meanwhile, Sue takes steps to fulfill her (heretofore unrevealed) desire to be a flower girl at a “fabulous” gay wedding and sets out to rekindle Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine’s fractured relationship.
“The Hurt Locker, Part 1″ airs TONIGHT @ 9PM ET/PT on Fox. 10+ pics inside…
