EpisodeEdit

Kyle has decided to talk to Jason again, but Jason is now ignoring him. Monica's issues have developed too far, causing her to collapse. Sophia is back in the club, after a talk with Leah.

That's what you've missed on Glee: The Next Direction!
Gleelogo

"SHE'S MY DAUGHTER LET ME IN!" Her father shouted as he tried to tackle the hospital personnel, desperate to hold the hand of her daughter.

Both parents were crying as Monica was going under some hospital systematic procedures.

Sophia cried in a seat, as tears were flowing slowly out of her eyes.

Mrs. Parks grabbed her bible and prayed as Mr. Parks begged for entrance to the operation rooms.

"Please, she's my daughter. My only child." Mr. Parks finally gave up and cried on the floor. Mrs. Parks went to him, and begged him to take a seat and pray with her.

Sophia felt horrible. She thought she had caused all of this. But she had no idea what was going through Monica's mind.

Then she remembered what Monica had frequently mumbled in her naps.

"Olivia."


The news about Monica spread like wild fire. Some spreaded their own renditions of the story, like she wanted to do suicide, or she was being over emotional.

Either way, most of the glee club was grieving.

Most of them.

"So, we all know what happened to Monica." Marley said, struggling to connect with the teenagers.

"So we're gonna do a stupid song tribute to her? Wow, how solemn. Isn't that what you do ALL THE TIME?" Kai sarcastically remarked.

All reacted negatively about that.

"Dude shut up! Monica's a part of this club whether you like it or not. What if you were close to dying, what if no one gave a damn about you!" Cody angered.

"Don't you dare start a brawl with me, Miley Cyrus." Kai teased. And soon both boys started attacking each other.

The rest of the boys grouped themselves and pulled the two away from each other.

"BOYS!" Marley screamed.

Both bleeding or bruised boys stopped punching.

"How dare you be so childish! All of you sit down!" Marley continued.

All were shocked at this side of Marley, and so they followed.

"Don't you see what's going on? I'm ashamed. Someone's fighting for their life, and you're fighting over petty things?" Marley was irritated greatly.

"Kai, Cody, you're both going to Miss Swan after this. No excuses." Marley said as she twirled around and sat on the piano.

"For an endless streak this club has been at the bottom of the social ladder. No matter who we are, we'll always be treated like underdogs. But that's the whole reason why this group was made. The glee club was meant for underdogs. No matter who felt like one, they would be always welcomed here. Don't treat one as inferior to you. We're all equal. We're all the same. We're all united because we're all underdogs. Now, for Monica, her family, and friends, we have to be strong for them. Until she gets released from the ICU, we'll practice a song, and we'll pray for her." Marley concluded.


Jason runs down the hallways, and grabs Kyle's arm, pulling him back.

"What?" Kyle asks, confused.

"I'm sorry about what I said before..." Jason mutters.

Kyle stands there, and says, "Where's your apology?"

"I said I'm sorry..."

"For?"

"For ignoring you, I guess..." Jason says.

"Good." Kyle says, leaning forward and kissing Jason in the packed hallways.

Jason pulls away first, and says "What was that for?"

"Trying something new" Kyle replies, smiling.

Jason smiles back and says, "You want to be open about our relationship?"

"I suppose".


"W-what's happened?" Mrs. Parks feared the answer.

"Well, she's had a massive blood loss, swollen esophagus, multiple slashes on both arms and legs, loss of fluids and low nutrient intake. She also had slashes on her abdominal area and neck as well. She has inflammation on her stomach. And due to the low food intake, she's had minor brain damage, which is still reversible." The doctor revealed.

Both parents were shocked at what they had heard.

Sophia was surprised by the extent of damage Monica had done to herself.

"What has been her diet, lately?" The doctor asked.

"Well, she brings an orange everyday to school. She tells me she'd eat in school." Mrs. Parker told the doctor.

"And that's all she eats. Every day." Sophia subconsciously said.

Both parents and doctor looked at her.

"Wh-what?" Mr. Parks replied.

"Oh, I see. Does she vomit?" The doctor asked her.

"I—I don't know."


"Hey Olivia," Aly walked over to her. She held out her phone and showed it to Olivia.

"So Barbecque is in the hospital. Good job." Aly had referenced Monica.

Olivia sighed and got her books from her locker.

"Uhm, Olivia? Hottest cheerleader ever?" Aly snapped her fingers repeatedly, making sure her perfectly manicured nails did not get destroyed.

"Olivia, what the hell is going on?" Aly found it ridiculous that she was getting ignored.

Aly left Olivia, strutting her walk.


"It's terrible what hppened to Monica, isn't it?" Leah says to Rocky as they wait in line for their food.

"It is! I wonder why she did it though..." Rocky mutters. "So many rumours!"


Olivia came home, exhausted from practice. She would usually feel quite energetic, but now she felt horrible.

She pushed herself so much just to forget about Monica.

She caused this, and she knew she wasn't supposed to feel like this, but she hated it.

She did her homework, and actually finished it (which was a first on her part; she'd usually get it done by a nerd).

Monica did not get out of her mind. She was tattooed on her mind.

Olivia was going desperate to stop this. She was crying. She was going crazy.

She started smashing things and throwing them onto the floor.

She then saw a framed photo of her, back in her freshman year. The innocent, good-hearted, and perfect example fourteen year old who recently passed Cheerios. 'What happened to that Olivia?' She asked herself.

She threw the frame on her bedroom floor.

She then went to her bathroom, not minding any debris.

She looked at the mirror, realizing she hadn't removed her make up. Her face looked like a painting by a drunk Leonardo Da Vinci.

She hated herself at the moment. Her make up doused tears had stained her clothes. Blood trickled out of her feet.

Immediately, she smashed her mirror, allowing the shards of reflective glass to fall freely.


"Hey, Ms. Rose, may I talk to you?" A wobbly Olivia peeped through Marley's door.

This time, Olivia didn't care about the fellow high schoolers in the hallway noticing her presence in a "loser club moderator's" office.

"S-sure." Marley stammered as she tried to hide the shock in her face.

Olivia hobbled to a nearby seat, and looked down at her feet.

"Is everything alright?" Marley attempted to start a discussion.

Olivia breathed in heavily.

"What happened to Monica was my fault." She spit out.

Marley's eyes widened.

"Wh-what do you mean it's your fault?" Marley was taken aback.

"I screwed her up. I pressured her into cutting herself and I feel horrible— I JUST WANT THIS TO BE OVER." Olivia started crying in her seat.

Marley found it awkward that this had happened, but she felt sorry for the cheerleader. She knew the feeling of being emotionally distraught, but not this way.

"I—I created this whole mess— the emotions—" her tears choked Olivia's message.

Marley grabbed a box of tissues, and hugged Olivia encouragingly. She then handed the box of tissues.

"Hey, you still have a few years of high school ahead of you. You're a pretty girl. Fix all your cracks, and don't let yourself go to waste." Marley told her.

"Tell you what, go to the hospital and see Monica! Apologise." Marley said.

"You're a good girl. Don't let bad influences taint you." Marley said, and smiled at Olivia.


Do you wanna come round my house? x is what Kyle reads as soon as he picks up his phone after class.

Kyle thinks for a moment, before texting Jason back. Sure. See you at 7? x


After school that day, Olivia walks cautiously through the hospital, and through to Monica's room. The door is left ajar, and Olivia peers through. She sees that Monica is awake, and no one is in the room. Olivia walks in, and takes a deep breath.

"Before you shout that I'm here, Monica, please just listen to what I have to say!" Olivia says, quickly.

Monica, startled, nods.

"I'm so sorry for doing this to you, I don't know what I was thinking. It's like I passed my body problems on to you, and that's a hundred percent wrong! I shouldn't have done it, and I'm so sorry. I really feel bad for this, and I've quit the Cheerios as of this afternoon, as they have changed the Olivia I am. I'm honestly so sorry, Monica, and I know you might never forgive me, but I just want you to know that I am", Olivia explains, tears feeling in her eyes.

"Olivia..." Monica stutters, "I don't know what to say..."

"Just know I'm sorry..." Olivia says, turning to go.

"Don't leave..." Monica says.

"Why?"

"You said you have body issues right? But to me, you have the perfect body, and you shouldn't want to change it. If you quit the Cheerios, you're quitting what you like! Dont' do that!" Monica says.

Monica reaches for her remote, and turns on the music, which plays Your Body is a Weapon.

Monica begins to sing, as Olivia takes a seat in the empty chair next to the bed.

Monica:
Sometimes I like to go uptown
Where flashy people flash around
It's extortionate and I don't care
You can taste the pretence in the air

And I wonder what you wear tonight
The shiny black dress with the slit at the thigh
Is this such fantasy that I should think
Someone like you could love a creep like me

Your body is a weapon, love
And it makes me wanna cry
My body is a temple of doom
Doomed not to be by your side

I like my job when I do it well
It's freelance work and it pays like hell
But I can get us a place with one bedroom
Who needs a friend when I got you

Your body is a weapon, love
And it makes me wanna cry
My body is a temple of doom
Doomed not to be by your side

And I don't come here for the exclusivity
I just come here for the view
And the minuscule chance of some close proximity
Or an awkward conversation with you
Yeah that'd be cool

Your body is a weapon, love
And it rips me up inside
My body is a temple of doom
Doomed not to be
Doomed not to be by your side

Someone protect me from the one I love
Someone protect me from the one I love
Someone protect me from the one I love
Someone protect me from the one I, one I love

Someone protect me from the one I love
Someone protect me from the one I love
Someone protect me from the one I love
Someone protect me from the one I, one I love

Someone protect me from the one I love
Someone protect me from the one I love
Someone protect me from the one I, one I love

Olivia leans forward, and gives Monica a hug, tears streaming from her eyes.

"Listen, if you don't want to re-join the Cheerios, why not actually join Glee club? I've heard you singing in the showers after sport, you're actually amazing!" Monica says. "We can audition tomorrow two days from now, when I'm release from here!"

Olivia smiles at Monica.


Kyle rings the doorbell, and the door is quickly opened by Jason, who kisses Kyle's cheek.

"Come in!" Jason says, putting music to Trumpets on. Jason starts to sing as he pulls Kyle into his home.

Jason:
Every time that you get undressed
I hear symphonies in my head
I wrote this song just looking at you oh, oh
Yet the drums they swing low
And the trumpets they go
And the trumpets they go
Yeah the trumpets they go

Da da, da ra ra da, da, da
Da, ra, ra, ra, da, da
Da da, da ra ra da, da, da
Da, ra, ra, ra, da, da
They go

Kyle is pulled into the bedroom by Jason.

Kyle:
Is it weird that I hear
Violins whenever you’re gone
Whenever you’re gone
Is it weird that your ass
Remind me of a Kanye West song?
Kanye West song

Is it weird that I hear
Trumpets when you’re turning me on?
Turning me on
Is it weird that your bra
Remind me of a Katy Perry song?

Jason (Kyle):
Every time that you get undressed
I hear symphonies in my head
I wrote this song just looking at you ooh, oh
Yeah the drums they swing low
And the trumpets they go (and they playing for you boy)
And the trumpets they go (ha, yeah)
Yeah the trumpets they go
Yeah the trumpets they go (go, go go, go go, go, go go)
And they go

Da da, da da da da
They go

Kyle:
(Damn) Is it weird that I hear
Angels every time that you moan?
Time that you moan
Is it weird that your eyes
Remind me of a Coldplay song?
Coldplay song

Is it weird that I hear
Trumpets when you’re turning me on?
Turning me on
Is it weird that your bra
Remind me of a Katy Perry song?

Jason:
Every time that you get undressed
I hear symphonies in my head
I wrote this song just looking at you oh
Oh yeah

Jason begins to take off his clothes, as Kyle lies down on the bed.

Jason (Kyle):
Every time (every time) that you get undressed (every time that you get undressed)
I hear symphonies in my head (I hear symphonies in my head)
I wrote this song (I wrote this song) just looking at you oh, oh (just looking at you girl)
Yeah the drums they swing low
And the trumpets they go (ha, acapella on them)
They go (ha, yeah)
Come on, come on, come on, they go

Jason leans forward to kiss Kyle, but is stopped.

"I can't do this!" Kyle says, running off.

"Are you serious?" Jason says, annoyed.


Marley enters the Choir Room, and looks around. "Where is Diana, by the way?"

"She's kind of not going to be here for a few weeks?" Amber says. "Her father came back after years and years of not talking to her."

"Oh..." Marley says, remembering her own father.

"How's Monica?" Natalie asks Sophia.

"She's good, coming in tomorrow. She told me she has a suprise, but she isn't telling me what it is!" Sophia exclaims.

"What about her... problems?" Jessica says.

"What about them?" Sophia asks.

"Well, if she's being dismissed from the hospital so quickly, she won't have gotten help for her issues?" Aidan says, coming to Jessica's help.

"Both Monica and the doctors said she had help from a source, but neither are telling me or her parents who they were!" Sophia says.

"It's all very weird," Marley says.


In the hallways, Jason stops Kyle.

"Listen, I'm sorry about yesterday, I just know I'm not ready sexually," Kyle informs him.

"Oh, you won't need to worry about that anymore," Jason says.

"Why?"

"Because we're over. I need someone who's going to be sexual with me, and that clearly isn't you!" Jason says, angrily.

"We've been in a relationship for FOUR years!" Kyle says.

"Well that four years ends today, sorry!" Jason says, leaving Kyle alone.


The next day, Monica enters the Choir Room to applause from its members.

"Hey, all!" Monica says, awkwardly. "So, as you probably know, I was helped by someone. Someone who I didn't expect, honestly. Olivia Ford-Harris, actually. She quit the Cheerios, I want you all to give her a chance in here!"

"Hit it!" Monica calls to the band members, and they begin to play Set Me Off.

Monica:
In my time, that's the way I usually go
And when I feel fine, that's when I'll be letting you know
I try, try keeping it slow, taking it slow
But I can't sustain it
Letting it go, letting it go (so easily)
So I try
As best as I can to break my fall
But you about to send me baby
You about to set me off

Olivia enters the room, and begins to sing.

Olivia:
I don't wanna do it, I don't wanna go
I don't wanna but my fuses are about to blow
My alarm is going, I'm on high alert
Baby it's enough just set me off, just set me off
Set me off, just set me off

The two sing the song, dancing around the Choir Room together, while some of the New Directions clap along, while others look annoyed and angry.

Olivia with Monica:
Be aware, I am not your everyday babe
We'll I'm there, I'm there
Everything all in, they play fair
Keeping it real, keeping it cool
But I gotta tell ya
I am a high heating with you
So I try, as best as I can to stay on my heels but they are breaking I'm so shaky
You about to set me off

Monica:
I don't wanna do it, I don't wanna go
I don't wanna but my fuses are about to blow
My alarm is going, I'm on high alert
Baby it's enough just set me off, just set me off
Set me off, just set me off
Just set me off, just set me off

Olivia:
It's crazy, I am always in control
But baby with you I'm good to go
Take caution, I'm about to blow my top
Come closer baby set me off, just set me off

Monica:
Yeah

Olivia with Monica:
I don't wanna do it, I don't wanna go
I don't wanna but my fuses are about to blow
My alarm is going, I'm on high alert
Baby it's enough just set me off, just set me off
Set me off, just set me off

I don't wanna do it, I don't wanna go
I don't wanna but my fuses are about to blow
My alarm is going, I'm on high alert
Baby it's enough just set me off, just set me off
Set me off, just set me off
Just set me off, just set me off
Set me off, just set me off
Set me off, just set me off

Several of members clap, while Marley gets up, and walks over to the two. "What do you think you guys? Should Olivia be part of the club?"

"No." Sophia and Leah say in unison, over everyone elses agreement.

"Why?" Olivia asks, curiously.

"One, you're a bitch-" Leah starts.

"Two, you're the reason that Monica was in the hospital in the first place!" Sophia finishes.

"If you're allowed into the club, it'll just ruin the whole dynamics and the amazingness of it!" Leah says.

"Hit it, boys!" Sophia says, pointing to the band members.

The two get out of their seats as the band begins to play Funhouse. Olivia stays standing, while Monica and Marley take seats.

Leah:
I dance around this empty house
Tear us down
Throw you out
Screaming down the halls
Spinning all around and now we fall

Sophia:
Pictures framing up the past
Your taunting smirk behind the glass
This museum full of ash
Once a tickle
Now a rash

The two sing the rest of the song dancing around Olivia, singing the song in her face.

Leah and Sophia:
This used to be a funhouse
But now it's full of evil clowns
It's time to start the countdown
I'm gonna burn it down down down
I'm gonna burn it down

Sophia:
9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, fun

Leah:
Echoes knocking on locked doors
All the laughter from before
I'd rather live out on the street
Than in this haunted memory

Sophia:
I've called the movers
Called the maids
We'll try to exorcise this place
Drag my mattress to the yard
Crumble tumble house of cards

Leah and Sophia:
This used to be a funhouse
But now it's full of evil clowns
It's time to start the countdown
I'm gonna burn it down down down

This used to be a funhouse
But now it's full of evil clowns
It's time to start the countdown
I'm gonna burn it down down down
I'm gonna burn it down

Leah:
9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, fun

Oh, I'm crawling through the doggy door
My key don't fit my lock no more
I'll change the drapes
I'll break the plates
I'll find a new place
Burn this fucker down

Sophia (Leah):
Do do do do dodo do
Do do do do dodo do
Do do do do dodo do
Do do do do dadadada
Do do do do dodo do (9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1)
Do do do do dodo do
Do do do do dodo do
Do do do do dodo doo

Leah and Sophia:
This used to be a funhouse
But now it's full of evil clowns
It's time to start the countdown
I'm gonna burn it down down down

This used to be a funhouse
But now it's full of evil clowns
It's time to start the countdown
I'm gonna burn it down down down
I'm gonna burn it down

"Even though that was a lovely performance, ladies, I'm sorry, but majority rules, Olivia's in the club..." Marley says, to the disgust of the two.


Jason walks out of the Choir Room after practice, and taps Rocky on the shoulder.

"Hey?" Rocky says, turning around.

"Listen," Jason says, seductively. "I'm into penis, and I was wondering if you would like to, you know, catch up after school," Jason says with a wink.

Rocky smiles at Jason, as Kyle walks angrily past the two.

Music to Payphone begins to play, and Kyle sings along with it as he walks through the halls.

Kyle:
I'm at a payphone trying to call home
All of my change I spent on you
Where have the times gone? Baby, it's all wrong
Where are the plans we made for two?

Yeah, I, I know it's hard to remember
The people we used to be...
It's even harder to picture,
That you're not here next to me.

You say it's too late to make it,
But is it too late to try?
And in our time that you wasted
All of our bridges burned down

I've wasted my nights,
You turned out the lights
Now I'm paralyzed.
Still stuck in that time
When we called it love
But even the sun sets in paradise

I'm at a payphone trying to call home
All of my change I spent on you
Where have the times gone? Baby, it's all wrong
Where are the plans we made for two?

If "Happy Ever After" did exist,
I would still be holding you like this
All those fairy tales are full of it.
One more stupid love song, I'll be sick

Oh, you turned your back on tomorrow
'Cause you forgot yesterday.
I gave you my love to borrow,
But you just gave it away.

You can't expect me to be fine,
I don't expect you to care
I know I've said it before
But all of our bridges burned down.

Kyle enters the auditorium, and sits down on the edge of the stage, singing the song, while thinking about Jason.

Kyle:
I've wasted my nights,
You turned out the lights
Now I'm paralyzed.
Still stuck in that time
When we called it love
But even the sun sets in paradise.

I'm at a payphone trying to call home
All of my change I spent on you
Where have the times gone? Baby, it's all wrong
Where are the plans we made for two?

If "Happy Ever After" did exist,
I would still be holding you like this
All those fairy tales are full of it.
One more stupid love song, I'll be sick
Now I'm at a payphone

Yeah, yeah, now baby don't hang up,
So I can tell you what you need to know,
Baby I'm begging you just please don't go,
So I can tell you what you need to know

I'm at a payphone trying to call home
All of my change I spent on you
Where have the times gone? Baby, it's all wrong
Where are the plans we made for two?

If "Happy Ever After" did exist,
I would still be holding you like this
All those fairy tales are full of it.
One more stupid love song, I'll be sick
Now I'm at a payphone...

"I'm done with you, Jason!" Kyle says angrily.
