Glee S:2 | Britney/Brittany E:2 | AfterBuzz TV AfterShow

AFTERBUZZ TV – Glee edition, is a weekly “after show” for fans of Fox’s Glee. In this show, host Paul Ashton breaks down the Britney Spears “sex riot” episode in which the glee club director Will Schuester attempts to set New Directions an easy listening adult contemporary assignment and Kurt (Chris Colfer) informs them there is a Facebook group petitioning the club to perform a Britney Spears number at the McKinley High homecoming assembly. Will refuses, stating that Spears is a bad role-model. He is supported by club member Brittany, who reveals that her full name is Brittany Susan Pierce and as such she has always been dismayed that she will never be as successful as the similarly named pop star. Will then discusses Spears with school guidance counselor Emma Pillsbury. While in her office, he meets her new boyfriend, Dr. Carl Howell, a dentist who offers to talk to the glee club about dental hygiene. A plaque test reveals that Brittany, Rachel and Artie (Kevin McHale) all require dental work. When Brittany is put under general anesthesia so Carl can fill her cavities, she experiences a hallucination in which she performs Spears’ “I’m a Slave 4 U”. She later returns to Carl’s practice with her friend Santana (Naya Rivera) and they share a hallucination in which they duet on “Me Against the Music”, where Spears herself appears. Brittany feels empowered by the encounter, and begins to act more assertively in glee club. Elsewhere, Rachel feels threatened by her boyfriend Finn’s desire to re-join the school football team, fearing that their relationship will not work if he becomes popular again. After visiting the dentist and experiencing her own hallucination, in which she performs “…Baby One More Time”, Rachel begins dressing more provocatively. Her new look is received positively and cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) finds school blogger Jacob Ben Israel (Josh Sussman) masturbating to a video of Rachel in the library. Rachel relents and encourages Finn to re-join the team. Artie’s dental visit results in a hallucination of “Stronger” in which he is also a member of the football team. Coach Beiste (Dot-Marie Jones) accepts both Finn and Artie, despite the fact Artie is in a wheelchair. Rachel becomes jealous of the attention Finn is receiving now that he is back on the team and to test Finn’s fidelity, she has his ex-girlfriend Quinn (Dianna Agron) attempt to seduce him. She is relieved when Finn turns Quinn down, and sings Paramore’s “The Only Exception” to him in apology. Advised by Emma to relax more, Will learns that Carl recently purchased a new Chevrolet Corvette and buys one for himself. He is confronted by his ex-wife Terri (Jessalyn Gilsig), who insists that he return it and cease wasting their savings. Seeing the positive effect Spears has had on the glee club members, Will relents and allows them to perform a Bob Fosse-inspired rendition of “Toxic” at the homecoming assembly, joining them on stage in an effort to impress Emma. When multiple students, including Jacob and Lauren Zizes (Ashley Fink), become sexually aroused by the performance, Sue sets off the fire alarm and has the student body evacuate the auditorium. She later threatens to sue Will after being injured in the stampede. Emma tells Will to stop trying to be someone he is not. He returns his new car, and tells the club they will not be performing any more Spears numbers.. There to help Paul are co-hosts Elisabeth Kiernan, Trilby Glover, and Phil Svitek. In this week’s special segment, they discuss future guest stars as well as their favorite ones from the past. It’s Glee’s “Britney/Brittany” episode!
