'Glee' Recap: Rachel Is Eying Up a New Man Already

TV Addict 5

Glee Rachel SamIf you noticed this week's Glee was titled Movin' On and figured it was a send-up to Billy Joel, who can blame you? Tonight was all about the Piano Man's biggest hits, and Blaine and Sam kicked off their big trip to New York City to look at colleges with none other than Joel's Movin' Out which is pretty darn close.

But if you were paying attention, and I do mean paying CLOSE attention, you might have caught a twinkle in a certain starlet's eye? Could it be? Is Rachel Berry ready to move on from Finn?

As Billy himself would say, "I may be crazy."

But there was something about the way Rachel looked at Sam tonight that seemed an awful lot like ... lust? Or at the very least, a small crush on a new guy? If nothing else, Rachel was finally having FUN with another guy who isn't either gay or a member of her cast tonight. Here's how it went down:

With McKinley's senior class anticipating graduation sooner than soon, Blaine was in New York for his NYADA audition, and Sam tagged along for an interview at Hunter College. But when he bombs the interview, Sam ends up back at Rachel, Kurt, and Santana's apartment 'fessing up to Rachel that he really doesn't want to go to college. His big dream? To be a male model. Of course.

With her Fanny Brice dream already well on the way to coming true, Rachel throws herself into making sure Sam can live his dreams too, hiring the Funny Girl photographer to help her old schoolmate build a portfolio. It lands him in the offices of the House of Bichette, aka Tyra Banks, who likes his look ... but wants the buff former stripper to drop 10 pounds (from where?).

Fortunately, when Sam he gets back to McKinley East (aka the Rachel/Kurt/Santana apartment), his friends quickly convince him he's better off with a little meat on his bones, and launch into -- what else -- a sing-along to the Billy Joel classic, Just The Way You Are

The song is a lot of fun to sing with friends, but it seemed like Rachel and Sam were a little more than as they crooned "I love you just the way you are" at each other ... especially when there was that whole side, shuffle, step, er, huh? move apart moment at the end.

Awkward!

Frankly, I don't see these two having lasting power because, well Sam is just too DUMB!
 
But who can fault Rachel for having a little crush on a cute guy? She's going to have to move on sometime ...
 
What did you think was going on with Sam and Rachel? Is this the start of something?
