Last night’s episode of Glee was a satisfying end to a brilliant half-season. The baby drama is finally out in the open. Rachel had figured out Quinn’s secret and told Finn. Glee Club seemed to be in trouble at sectionals as Sue had given their set list to the competing teams. Finn saved the day by stepping up as a leader. The other schools admitted that they had cheated, resulting in Sue’s suspension. Meanwhile, Terri started therapy in hopes of repairing her marriage, but it was too little too late for Will. Ken dumped Emma on their wedding day because she was still in love with Will. The Glee finale ended with Will and Emma having their first kiss.
Glee Ep. 13: Will and Finn
One of the many highlights of last night’s episode was the scene between Will and Finn. Finn had left the Glee Club in frustration after being betrayed by Quinn and Puck. Will, who was the only one who understood his situation, reminded him that “you can’t always get what you want.” Of course that would lead to a musical number. I like this new Finn. He was willing to step up and be a better man, but without being a doormat.
Glee Ep. 13: Rachel
Rachel showed surprising growth when she gave Mercedes the solo in And I’m Telling You. Of course, she did have her own moment to shine with Don’t Rain on My Parade, a perfect song choice for the talented and sometimes over-the-top Rachel. It was probably her best performance of the season. Fans would love to see a duet between her and Idina Menzel.
Glee Ep. 13: Will and Emma
It was a perfect moment for a first kiss as the Glee Club performed Kelly Clarkson’s My Life Would Suck Without You. Of course, what will Glee fans do for four months while the show goes into hiatus? My Life Would Suck Without Glee.
Glee Fall Finale: Unanswered Questions
Where is Will staying now that he has left Terri? Obviously he can’t continue sleeping on that mattress at school. Where would Quinn go now that Finn has dumped her? Her parents have kicked her out and she has rejected Puck. And how was the Glee Club able to pull off instrumental arrangements for their last-minute performance at sectionals? Did Finn download parts for the band and orchestra?
Of course, in a show where Terri was able to pull off a fake pregnancy and Quinn was able to convince Finn that she had gotten pregnant without having sex, it’s better to just enjoy Glee without expecting too much realism.
