Don’t jump all over me, here, Gleeks… but that felt a little… anti-climactic? I mean — I *knew* Rachel was going to her second audition. And I *knew* that Blaine was maybe gonna propose to Kurt. And I also knew that they were gonna dominate Regionals (okay, I didn’t know… but I knew), and had a mega-feel that Unique was the other half of Ryder’s txt exchange with “Katie.” You know what I mean? So, the biggest surprise was that Brittany made it into MIT? And Wemma finally got married? Ehhh, I wanted to be SHOCKED, yo!
Let’s hang on that Brittany thing for a minute — and by “hang” I mean, ponder the fact that of all the ridiculous things that Glee has brought us over the past four seasons, THIS might be the most ridic. I mean, what? Brittany’s brain has some string of numbers in it but she can’t perform basic math functions? Okay… (Don’t hate me because I never fell for Brittany!) At least her goodbyes to everyone were sweet…
Favorite part of the episode, though? Wait for it… it’s Blaine-related. (Now *there’s* a shock, I KNOW!) But srsly, that scene with Blaine and Kurt, hangin’ with Patty Duke and Meredith Baxter! I mean, how awesome was that? I feel like week to week the genius of Ryan Murphy isn’t really on full display these days — and then something amazing like that shows up and you’re all… ahhhhh yeahhhh. Bravo, dude.
The Wemma wedding was cute. I liked it. What I didn’t like? Ryder freaking out on Unique! We teach tolerance and awesomeness in THIS glee club, dude! Lighten up. I mean, I get it. He’s a teenage boy, and so sharing something with a BOY when you thought it was a GIRL when you’re already feeling vulnerable is SCARY and feels like it MEANS SOMETHING. But c’mon, Ryder! It’s Unique! Just be cool, bro.
And then there’s Rachel. Aside from the fact that this storyline is ALL KINDS OF NOT REAL… I want this to happen. How great would the arc be next season? (Wait, a little too Smash-y? Hmmm…)
Final thought: As much as I love Klaine, I can’t help but wonder why they are bothering with the maybe-engagement storyline? Where do you think THAT will pick up next season? And what are your OTHER predictions for next season?
