Glee > Glee Season Finale Review: Pomp and Circumstance > Comments Page 3
"Maybe I'm just overthinking it"
Yup, you are. Musicians pop out of nowhere every episode, obvious twenty-somethings playing teenagers, a school and faculty THAT corrupt, and you're getting your skivvies in a twist over the college acceptance timeline? Never mind the fact that Q went from paraplegic to professional dancer in what a few weeks? Yeah, over-thinking, a lot.
I thought the train station scene was by far the best actual acting I've seen in this show. Rachael's reaction was spot on (not that I have experienced high school breakups, cough, cough) And Finn's determination, though perhaps not so much his motivation, was splendid.
Though I enjoyed the season finale, and I loved all the songs and the saying goodbyes, I just do NOT agree with everyone who says that Rachel and Finn couldn't have been married and still have been successful in New York! And how is Finn joining the Army and going off to the hell hole of Afghanistan to risk his life redeeming his father? His death in the middle east would just be a waste of a young life, not redeeming of anyone or anything. And what if he loses a leg, or an arm, or gets PTSD and becomes crazy from seeing all kinds of horrors during war? How will that help Rachel and Finn's relationship, when Rachel isn't emotionally strong enough to pursue her career and help Finn recover. People get married and then one of them goes off into the military ALL THE TIME...it happened a lot before each of the World Wars, and I think that the two of them would have been stronger for knowing that they had a husband/wife to come home to for support and comfort.
Gettng this episode tonight in the UK looking forward to it, but reading the reviews I am shocked not that Rachel got into NYADA but that Kurt didn't. Pretty sure not the boy next door was the song of the season and Miss T sure seemed to enjoy it at the time so am a little put out Kurt who didn't mess up didn't get in. On the plus side hope this means plenty of Klaine next season!
actually, Santana was accepted into her cheerleading college at a normal time, Mike's is said to be a late acceptance, probably off of a waitlist.
Rachel, Finn, and Kurt's acceptances were weird, but maybe since they have to audition it takes longer
@howard, mercede was accepted in two colleges. Episode was really really good, enjoyed half the songs alot. Nothing but goodness except two complaints, i do agree with alot of you that the final focus shouldve been on the entire glee club, not just rachel, but that doesnt take away from the episode as a whole where the focus was pretty well spread. Which brings me to my second complaint, all the seniors got adequate focus except mike and mercedes, who received as much focus as brittany, who didnt even graduate. All in all great finale, already feeling glee withdrawel symptoms, excited for s4!
I thought glee was pretty good and i respected finn for his decision but I'm not huge fan of finchel whatever u call it I'm like a lot people I feel like most characters haven't got there chance or the writers don't care enough to write about them for example sam and Mercedes y couldn't we fans get more than balloons and hug and not a huge moment I hope next season really gives all characters a chance to shine not just rachel , finn
Kimmie I understand your frustration but I think many of your questions will be answered next season. Since we know all of the actors have expressed interest in returning to the show and Ryan Murphy has said he would keep on anyone who wanted to stay, I think we can see these stories extend into next season. In fact it would give even more of a reason to see characters who have otherwise gone far away.
Glee has givien us the opportunity to watch all these characters become adults and individuals by creating a new direction for each of them. This individual growth period for each of them will make them stronger and interesting to watch new paths each of them will take. I excited for this new direction that Glee will take. When kids graduate life changes and challenges become more demanding life is not as simple as it once was as in high school. These will be the stories we will get to watch as they grow into incredible adults. I love this direction for season 4.
This episode just wasn't that good. Song choices weren't fantastic in the sense that they didn't really show off the casts abilities or make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck. and in all honesty they didn't really give all the cast there dues leaving waaaay to many loose ends. There was a huge focus on Finchel throughout the episode, a relationship that heaps of Glee fans want to see prosper and then they go and tear it apart at the end by means by a huge betrayal that is passed of as romantic. Finn's reasoning is he wants to try and restore the Honour of his father while releasing rachel of his burden yet he is 100% sure that she is the one. In fact he is so sure he has decided that he is going to leave her WTF... give me a break. Besides the fact that the Finchel break-up/make-up thing is old hat it's depressing to watch when the producers establish them as such a good couple. Yes the wedding should have been canned. but they should still have stayed together. Personally i'
I loved everything about Goodbye. It ended the only way it should-Rachel going to New York to follow her dream. A boy showed how much of a man he has become by exhibiting selflessness and undying love for Rachel setting her free. As hard as it was to accept this ending for many of the characters it was a wonderful uplifting experience to see them be happy whom they are and how devoted they are to each other. Glee has created a wonderful lateral extension to creativity to each of the characters to follow into season 4. To grow into adults. To complete last tasks that will make them whole-Finn redeeming his dad's name. Kurt will find a new path with Sarah Jessica Parker's character's help. Santana uncharted territory but in New York. Finally, Rachel needed Finn's selfless push to follow the dream she and he believed that she was destined for. It showed the Glee club believed in her too. Glee has given us an opportunity to take a different fork in the road to watch them become
Glee is one of my favorite tv shows but to be totally honest I hated the finale. They totally screwed up a season that started amazingly fine. I love finchel and all but we didn't even get the chance to say goodbye to other people. Besides why didn't kurt get into nyada.....I hated this episode...it sucked! sucked! sucked!
The thing I loved about this ep was that it focused on the graduating class. No PSA's, tributes or ridiculous s/ls. The songs moved the story along. It was emotional and it tied up their high school days. I realise that there was hardly any logic in this ep but I was able to suspend belief enough to enjoy it, this is Glee after all.
This eppy was great. Lets face it this show has always been the Rachel show from the very first ep. I'm happy of the way they handled her s/l. She had come full circle. I'm also glad that they didn't get married. Finn was man enough to let her go and chase after her dream knowing that he wouldn't be part of it and I'm glad that Rachel didn't give up her dream to be with Finn. Finn was right if they were meant to be then they will be. Love isn't the be all end all ESPECIALLY in high school. So as heartbreaking as their break up was (I cried like a baby when Finn ran after the train) it was the best thing for them. And it sent a positive message to kids.
OMG. Being probably the biggest fan of Glee and also being the biggest finchel shipper, i was absolutely crushed when Finn took Rachel to the train station. As soon as they pulled up there i immediately started sobbing and i mean REALLY sobbing!! I was thinking to myself gosh it's just a show, but it's not really. it's a show i have been watching from the very beginning, a show that i have loved from the beginning. I immediately fell in love with Finchel and it just breaks my heart that they broke up and i ended up crying myself to sleep last night. awful ending for me i desperately hope they will be together again seeing as they will both be guest stars next season.
Amazing that none of these students (Kurt, Santana, Mercedes) had back-up plans for college, or, in the case of Mercedes, any at all, apparently. We've learned that almost all of the Glee kids' parents are professionals (doctors, lawyers), and yet none of them made any real college plans?
And, Rachel heads to New York, ostensibly in late June or early July (since most high schools don't graduate until the end of June), and everyone in the street is wearing a jacket as if it's early Spring. Even climate doesn't make sense on this show!
Real world logic has never been Glee's strong point, but this episode was riddled with ridiculous moments. Puck's entire graduation rests on one test in one class? That means that his combined GPA is 64.99% and he's essentially passed every other class, with this one test (which isn't even referred to as a final) being the make-or-break-point?
Kurt nailed his NYADA audition, and impressed Whoopi. But he doesn't get in? And Rachel does?
Brittney has a 0.0 GPA. So, why was she allowed to participate in Cheerios and New Directions and be Senior Class President when in season one, all it took was a threat of not passing Spanish to keep the football team from being able to play? And, what makes her think that she'll be able to have two terms? Wouldn't the current Junior class want to hold an election of their own, and possibly elect someone they know?
If this is Rory's last episode, or Joe's, why didn't they at least get a line so they could say goodbye, too?
Amazing that none
Also, Miranda W., some schools have rolling admissions so a lot of kids don't know they are getting into schools until the summer. Also, with performing arts schools, it's such an intense application and audition process that it takes longer to get in to.
Although I'm sure the Glee writers did not think that much into it. So I'm also sure I just gave them an excuse.
Question: Isn't Mercedes only a junior? I could have sworn they said Mercedes was a junior at the beginning of this season. If so, another hole in the plot Glee....
Other than that, I can't say that Glee has returned to it's "glory days" of season 1, but it is certainly doing so much better than that mess that it started off with. What an ending. I know I DEFINITELY cried when Finn broke up with Rachel, especially on the day she thought she was going to get married to him! How rude. I know I wouldn't have taken it as well as she did, so kudos to her for that.
Kurt's Dad dancing to single ladies had to be the best scene of the season. Actually in the history of the show. I think I laughed for about 5 minutes.
Also, does anyone else think Merecedes is being overshadowed? Amber Riley is hands down the best singer on the show, yet doesn't get to be a star. I hope they fix this on season 4 and get back to focusing on character development. It's showing promise now.
I hated the show now, too much of life imitating art. Everybody change everything to accommodate Rachel. First prom queen now NY. UGH end of Glee for me.
it burst for me when Sue and Quinn said goodbye, that was so beautiful the tears just kept on falling until the end of the episode... didn't think Glee of all series would bring out my tears... not even the finale of Grey's made my tears fall then I was just heartbroken and stunned but this was something else something that we all go through and can relate too... You did good Glee I'm actually looking forward to season 4, something I didn't think I would do :)
I am far from saying that the show is perfect (which is definitively not true) but it succeded to put me in a very very good mood and that's all I ask from Glee!!
ahah! As a Rachel Berry fan, I am just on the moon! I wouldn't be surprise if Kurt still finds his way to NY. Look at Santana, she has no direct plan in the city but she's still going.
I really wouldn't have minded if Kurt got accepted but it didn't really bother me. I know that a lot of people find really hard to accept that Rachel is the main character and thus, of course are not happy when the main focus is on her but what can you do? I totally understand, because I'm experiencing the same thing on other shows, but you have to accept it and move on. That's how it works. You have to say that Kurt has been the focus of heavy storylines the past year.
I would have been very very very disappointed if Rachel didn't make it to NY. Yes, I watch Glee to be happy (even if the shows didn't really do it in this season 3) and wanted my Happy-Rachel-Ending, so I have nothing to complain about.

The episode was boring and predictable. Overall this was a weak ending to a season that started well. Next year looks like a disaster in the making as they try to stretch backwards to departed cast members and have nowhere to go with the new cast.
With the exception of Burt's tribute to Kurt, I hated this episode. It was unfair to fans of anyone except Rachel (believe it or not, there are some of us out there!). I will no longer watch the show.
This episode reminded me of why I started to hate Glee and stopped watching it. I am sick and tired of the "Rachel Berry Show." I know she's the main character, but that does not mean everything has to work out for her perfectly or handed to her on a silver platter.
I was so angry I was literally shaking. I cannot believe that Rachel got in to NYADA, and Kurt didn't. It should have been all or none. Kurt has had a horrible year, he's had to fight for everything he's wanted, and he lost to Rachel Berry...again. So disappointing and heartbreaking.
The actual graduation scene was short and not even memorable; they should have done more with it, and cut down on the Finchel which a lot of people don't care about. I was begging her to stop singing the last 5 minutes so we could actually have a little more closure for the other characters. This finale was supposed to be about ALL the graduates, not just Rachel.
Sloppy writing, and so many things didn't make sense. Why would Kurt s
