Sam stripped down (and we didn’t mind), Rachel opened up, and Blaine got caught right in the middle of his lie to Kurt. Talk about a finale!
Season five of Glee wrapped on May 13th, but the script is no where near finished. With Rachel (Lea Michele) unsure about where she wanted her future to go, she hoped a visit from quirky writer Mary Halloran (Kristen Schaal) would make that easier. However, she didn’t expect it to become even more difficult.
Blaine & Kurt Forever
Klaine really can make it through everything. Blaine (Darren Criss) couldn’t lie to Kurt (Chris Colfer) anymore abut not including him in his big showcase, and it wasn’t surprising that Kurt was heartbroken when he found out he wouldn’t be a part of it. But more than anything, he was hurt that Blaine would lie.
Unfortunately for June Dolloway (Shirley MacLaine), though, they ended up just proving once again that their love was unbreakable — not even June could tear them apart. So, Kurt still came to support Blaine at the showcase and Blaine called him up to perform with him! At first, June was disgusted that he would go behind her back. But after a little “American Boy,” she got jazzed up and told Blaine that she was proud of him. “Never let anyone, even me, make you doubt what you’re sure of,” she told him — and even took in Kurt for a hug.
Samcedes Ends In The Most Mature Way Possible
However, Sam (Chord Overstreet) and Mercedes (Amber Riley)’s romance wasn’t so lucky.
We’ve got to say — this has got to be the most mature break up that’s ever happened in Glee history. After Sam got hit on by a ridiculously thirsty photographer, he gave in for half a second and ended up kissing her. However, like the good boyfriend he is, he ran home to Mercedes and told her what happened — and that he cried afterward because he felt so bad.
Mercedes explained to him that she couldn’t hold him back anymore — that it wasn’t fair to him and that she was scared he’d resent her eventually for not sleeping with him. They agreed it’d be best to break up — and that totes makes sense with her going on tour! Plus, they agreed that if she did decide she was ready to have sex, he’d be the first to call. Plus, they both decided they belong together, some day. (So, Ryan Murphy — this is me saying they better be together in the series finale!)
Rachel Learns Dreams Aren’t Perfect: They Come True, Not Free
So there was no romance going on for Rachel, but she did finally figure out her dream. Apparently, it wasn’t broadway after all. When Rachel was asked to create her own TV show, she enlisted the help of Mary Halloran, a famous TV writer. However, while Rachel wanted the show to be all about her (shocker), Mary wanted to turn it into a quirky, eccentric show with weird names and nothing like her actual life.
Of course, Rachel used the one thing she knew she could win anyone over with — her voice. After breaking into song at Starlight Diner, Mary realized that Rachel’s real life and real friends were interesting enough — and she wrote a show about their actual lives.
With the return of Brittany (Heather Morris), and the crew gathered around the Brooklyn apartment, they did a read-through of the new script — and it was perfect. Rachel even received a call at the end of the episode that they want to film a pilot — so off to LA she’s heading since apparently this was her real dream. (Anyone else think it’s strange she’s spent her life dreaming of being Fanny Brice and now she’s off to LA?)
So, with Rachel heading to LA and Mercedes heading on tour, Blaine moved in with Kurt and Sam decided that after landing on the side of a bus, it was time for him to return to Ohio. However, they all agreed — in six months, they’d be back together.
I guess we’ll have to wait until 2015 to see!
