Wayne: I think I would, again, end with, we have to figure yourself out first before you can help your kids. Because once I did that, I was a better father, better husband, a better person, and a better leader at work. So yeah, just have the courage to take care of yourself so you can help everybody else.
Throughout its short run so far, Tyrant has shown glimpses of being an interesting series that explores a difficult issue with some complexity. But most of the time, it's chosen plot over characterization, and broad strokes over nuance. The first part could almost be forgivable if the series was one that featured fast-paced action or political intrigue, but it has neither. Tyrantseems to be playing a long game, when what it really needs to focus on is there here and now. Hit the jump for why "like father, like son."
Kat, teen Brady, Alice and Nick go on their double date. Alice is completely intrigued to see her father as a teenager. She rapidly questions him about school and his upbringing. The group finds it odd but teen Brady answers her and fills her in on his plans. His demeanor is pompous. Adult Kat is watching the double date through the glass window of the restaurant.
"Preggers" is the fourth episode of the American television series Glee. The episode premiered on the Fox network on September 23, 2009, and was written and directed by executive producer Brad Falchuk. "Preggers" sees glee club member Kurt (Chris Colfer) join the football team and admit his homosexuality to his father, Burt (Mike O'Malley). Cheerleader Quinn (Dianna Agron) discovers she is pregnant and tells her boyfriend Finn (Cory Monteith) the baby is his, when in fact the father is his best friend Puck (Mark Salling). Faculty members Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) and Sandy Ryerson (Stephen Tobolowsky) team up in an effort to bring down the glee club, luring away a disillusioned Rachel (Lea Michele), who quits when club director Will (Matthew Morrison) refuses to award her a solo song. This episode features the first appearance of O'Malley as Burt Hummel.
"Preggers" features covers of two songs, and several dance performances of Beyoncé's "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)". A studio recording of Michele's cover of "Taking Chances" was released as a single, available for digital download and features on the album Glee: The Music, Volume 1. The scene in which Kurt comes out to his father was based on the personal experience of series creator Ryan Murphy. Murphy's intention was to move away from previous shows he has worked on in which gay characters have not been given happy endings, by allowing Kurt to succeed and be accepted.
The episode was watched by 6.64 million United States viewers and received mixed reviews from critics. Shawna Malcom of the Los Angeles Times praised the show's fast pacing; however, The New York Times's Mike Hale felt that key characters were not given enough screen time. The football team's performance of "Single Ladies" and Kurt's coming out to his father were generally well received; however, Rachel's actions garnered little sympathy, and several reviewers commented negatively on Quinn's pregnancy, with Eric Goldman of IGN deeming it "a very soap opera plotline".
Glee club member Kurt Hummel (Chris Colfer) is caught dancing to Beyoncé's "Single Ladies" by his father Burt (Mike O'Malley), and claims that it is a football exercise, and that he is now part of the team. Fellow glee club member and football quarterback Finn Hudson (Cory Monteith) helps Kurt to practice, and finds him to be a skilled kicker. Finn convinces coach Ken Tanaka (Patrick Gallagher) to let Kurt try out for the team. Ken is delighted to find such an asset for the team and adds Kurt as the kicker.
Finn's girlfriend Quinn Fabray (Dianna Agron) tells him she is pregnant, claiming her pregnancy as a result of Finn's premature ejaculation when they made out in Quinn's hot tub. Finn worries that his future prospects will be diminished by fatherhood. He asks glee club director Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) to coach the football team at dancing, believing it will help them to improve, increasing his chances of securing a football scholarship. Finn confides Quinn's news to his best friend Puck (Mark Salling), who later confronts Quinn, claiming to be the baby's father, since she said she was a virgin when they had sex. Quinn rejects Puck, calling him a "Lima loser" who could never support her and the baby like Finn. Will's wife Terri (Jessalyn Gilsig) reveals to her sister Kendra (Jennifer Aspen) that she experienced a hysterical pregnancy and is not really carrying Will's baby. Kendra suggests that they acquire a baby, and when Terri learns of Quinn's pregnancy from Will, she confronts her, asking questions about her prenatal care.
The football team puts their dance training into practice by performing the "Single Ladies" routine in the middle of a game, confusing and distracting the opposition, and with Kurt's help is able to win. Buoyed by his success, Kurt comes out to his father Burt and tells him that he's gay; Burt tells him he knew all along and loves Kurt just the same.
Ben's threats are apparently not intimidating enough, because Rose390 shows up one more time, turning the game on herself and telling Lynn and Lila that their dad is dead. Again, this is a super cool time for everyone involved. It's only after this encounter that Kristen finally forbids the girls to use the goggles at all and assures them that their father is fine. I don't normally believe evil children who appear inside augmented reality games, but maybe Rose390 has a point -- what's the deal with Mr. Bouchard? Is he really sherpa-ing his heart out on Mount Everest? Will we get some visual confirmation of his existence any time soon?
Kendall Roy arrives back in New York City by plane, only for Rava Roy to decline to go with him to the annual foundation gala. He is then informed by Jess Jordan that his father is in his office waiting to talk. His dad confronts him about selling part of Waystar Royco, but Kendall stands his ground by saying they were only in a freefall because Logan put them in so much debt.
Roman Roy has an aggravated morning with Grace as they bicker in the bathroom. Later at work, his brother calls them to complain about their father who had a moment of incontinence at work and Roman tells him to deal with it. He is then immediately confronted with Frank Vernon in his office who his father has rehired to show him the ropes. He's obviously very annoyed by this and continuously insults the man.
Connor Roy is preparing for the charity event and is rather neurotic about it all. He is further agitated, when Willa Ferreyra shows up, and even has a tantrum over the butter. That night, Ken is accompanied by the woman he has a crush on, whom Gerri set up for him to attend the gala with. He is supposed to make a grand speech, only Connor discovers that the prompter has been changed to announce Logan's retirement. Connor immediately tells his father who gets in front of the situation. Before Kendall can make his speech, Logan makes his own. He announces very proudly to the audience that he is back to run his company. He then threatens Kendall if he ever tries to do anything like that again. Ken is dumbfounded at what has happened. He is also informed by his lady friend that she has zero interest on making any advances on him, though she hints she was strongly pressured into doing so earlier. Kendall is once again dumb-founded and insists that was never his intention.
I\u2019m probably bringing up Lost too much in these reviews, but it\u2019s impossible to ignore the show\u2019s influence on Yellowjackets. In \u201CBear Down\u201D alone, we get two different characters fixating on daddy issues (and flashing back to their fathers\u2019 violent deaths), and the reveal of a second plane in the woods.
