    Not to mention, from what I understand, the events of the show right now occur sometime during the spring, as this season continued directly from the end of last season.

    I thought that I heard Brittany was written out, that she got some sort of a mid-year acceptance to a university because she was tested as some sort of genius. (Don't ask me for more details, it's one of those things that I heard about in passing, as I wasn't really watching at the time.)

    I recall the story line, (some math thing, I think) but I thought something happened and it fell through. Is she REALLY actually officially and permanently gone from the show?

    As for Finn, he wasn't in every episode, and sometimes only in passing. This could be one of those. If he was hardly in it, easy to edit/change around him.

    According to what I'm reading online, Brittany was written out in the season finale, "All or Nothing," in which she was awarded and accepted a mid-year admission to MIT.

    As for how permanently she's gone, it's possible she returns for a guest appearance, but Heather Morris is definitely no longer under contract as a series regular for season 5. (http://tvline.com/2013/06/28/glee-season-5-cast-heather-morris-mark-salling-not-returning/)

    I got the impression that this was what she wanted, being highly pregnant at the time and all. Maybe she just wanted to take a year off to be a mom. (It's certainly the reason she wasn't in the Finn tribute episode.)

    I still think it was weird they weren't there - they could have done a face shot of Brittany there have been plenty of dealing with pregnant women on TV shows before this - and I don't see any good reason why Agron wasn't there.

    I have agreed with most of your comments -
    however - the last two weeks have been not so bad.
    Glambert's song from 2 weeks ago was pretty awesome and As someone else mentioned Unique's solo was not exactly what I would call soul less.

    Most of this series has been brutal since after season 2.

    I watched the first few minutes... fast forwarded about 10 minutes... then again... then again... and finally realized there didn't appear to be anything redeeming in the episode and gave up. The show has completely lost its way. Hard to believe that FOX is likely going to stick with this thing for another season and a half.

    So was this episode a truly "lost" episode (i.e. filmed last year and never shown) or was it filmed this year but labeled lost to cover the fact that it does not fit in to this season's time line?

    Also, have they ever explained where Sugar and Joe went? As far as I know they should still be part of the Glee club.

    The second one.

    Jane also mentioned that one of the scenes Fox ordered cut included the explanation as to why Will no longer had his job in Washington. That sounds like something Family Guy would do. ("So, Lois, how did you lose your job with Fox News? - You know what? The episode's just about over; does it really matter?", and "Tell me, Brian, how could you have fathered a boy who's now a teenager if you're only eight years old yourself - Go complain on the Internet"). Also, somebody claims that the names on the stockings that Jane fills with coal are actresses who beat her out for various awards, although the only three people to have beaten her out for Emmys are Betty White, Julie Bowen, and Merritt Wever (which might have been the name on the last stocking).

    So should Brittany - in fact, Santana did mention that Brittany was still in Lima, yet she (and Finn (who hadn't died yet), for that matter) did not appear.

    IIRC, there was also a bit of discontinuity involving someone's hair length.

    Well, I think Sue made some comment about how Glee members randomly disappear in one of the earlier episodes. I guess that was their way of saying "We know this makes no sense, but we don't care enough to explain it."

    As I was watching, I had the feeling that it was filmed this year. This show is hard to follow, but I believe Brittany and Finn would have still been around if this was December 2012.

    I'm just so disappointed in this show because of the endless talent it hosts. These kids deserve a quality outlet to express their amazing skills
