Finchel. Ok, well, I come from a family where women wait for their husbands and loved ones to come home from serving the country. I get that Rachel's make-over made her feel more confident but the way she just point-blank told the shower dude (sorry, I refuse to call this "character" by him name, hotness is not a quality) "I want to cook dinner for" made me wanna slap her. One thing is to have dinner with a guy friend, another is to make it look like she was about to ask him to be with her for the rest of her life...Come on, Rachel, that is not you, because JUST 2 EPISODES AGO you made it clear you still love Finn. Look, I am just so sick and tired of tv shows where the moment there is a rough patch in a relationship everyone calls quits because they are just to lazy to try and make it work. People, that is life! Nothing is ever going to be perfect or simple or happy, yes, Finchel's relationship was having difficulties, but does that mean they stopped loving each other? And I don;t even wanna talk about how Rachel and the shower dude ALREADY kissed! And now like in every soap opera we end on Finn showing up to surprise Rachel... I love it how everyone is saying "Oh, but he has been MIA" and Rachel is so unhappy and Rachel is this and that....what about looking at this issue from Finn's side? What if all this time he was still deciding on what to do with his life? What if he understood army life was not for him? What if something happened that made him go to NY and see Rachel I am guessing right away? its gonna be sad when these two break up next week, cos lets face it they are. Shower dude's fans can rejoice, but the sad truth is, he might like her, but he still does not know what and who Rachel is beyond those new clothes she got. And Finn knows and loves the real her. Thats the difference.

Now onto little Mrs.Shrimmer. Look, I am glad she got a make-over (finally), but in my opinion it should have happened in new Rachel already. I enjoyed SJP on Glee because I felt like she fits Glee, like a glove. Also the scenes where Rachel was getting a make-over, I felt like I was watching "The Devil Sings Prada". Cute & nice.

So about the couples, first of all, I get that Kurt and Blaine's relationship is supposed to get difficult because of the long distance, however I don't like it that they are making Kurt just ignore Blaine and his life. Because taking into account that just 2 episodes ago Kurt was still so much about the Lima life, and Blaine, its weird that all of a sudden two episodes later he acts like this.

This episode was disappointing. Last 2 episodes were good. The music was bland and uninteresting (contrast last week with a great rendition of 3 from Tina, Joe and Sam) The storyline directions were not believeable - esp Kurt gets a great job at Vogue with no experience and also the Sarah Jessica Parker character was totally unrealistic - its a very competitive field and you have to be extremely competent to get where she is and she seemed completely clueless. Would like to see some Quinn and Mercedes and also more of Tina. Blaine's a really strong character and I feel he should get more time and solos

I fully agree with the reviewer of this episode, ok -but not great, and Glee can do better, like even s2 was not that bad. I agree, the songs were terrible again, I did not like that the whole election theme was treated like whatever, and just like Sue fell down on her hands the moment Artie started speaking abd EVERY word that came out of his mouth was the usual bullshit jiberish that modern politicians use in their campaign...ugh...But I did like how Glee managed to perfectly outline one thing - most of the time people that go into politics either have no idea what they are doing (Brittany) or they get into politics because they are doing it for someone (Blaine). So the whole election thing was absurd but realistic at least. Thank God there were no new kids singing songs this week, and I caught myself thinking, I don't care what happens in the choir room anymore...and I feel bad that Tina's character is forgotten about AGAIN.

@chien - thy originally planned a spin off for Rachel, Finn, and Kurt but then they trashed the idea. Not sure if Ryan Murphy decided against it or the actors but that was the original plan.

I agree with 3 out of 5 and I love glee. I liked last epi much better. I've never liked Finn, so I'm totally okay with Brochel. Why is everyone surprised? Finn hasn't contacted her for months after telling her to live her own life-they are not in a current relationship. I love Brittney, but this epi seemed a little much for me too. I hate how the longer the show goes, the dumber they make her. She didn't start out dumb-she was emotionally intelligent. I miss that. And I miss Santana. I actually like them focusing on different people throughout different episodes. I was so, so tired Finn, Rachel and Kurt ALL the time. More than the older kids, I miss the background dynamic. The new kids aren't there to have fun and play a few scenes. They are just there to work

I really liked SJP in this. The rest is drama for the birds and IMO it is just a soap opera for young people. Blaine's song was very nice. the rest was not. Ryan Murphy thrives off of the fandom writhing in pain through these type of episodes. To me Special Education was funnier and more interesting than this. To break up its couples in a one big swoop of an episode, tearful, sad, unfulfilling for most if not all couples is morose and over the top drama. I just don't have a handle on this season yet. Or care to really, the soap opera is quite dull. I'm not feeling any love or care for McKinley much. Too much overload of Brittany, for my preference. Sad for Blaine.

Um no. Remember that Finn's Mom married Kurt's Dad. I"m sure Kurt would have told his father where he was living.

im sure im not the only who thinks this way, and i probably wont be the first or the last to mention it, but why not just spin the new yorkers into a spin-off instead? honestly,i understand that since the show is called glee, it HAS to focus on the glee club IN mckinley, but this juggling around two sides is beginning to get annoying.

i think it would be entirely possible to spin-off the new yorkers to a new series that is more mature and serious; bringing the story-lines there back down to earth, based more in reality than the crazy place that is mckinley; the stories there are already heading that way anyway.

on the other hand, glee always has it's fun crazy moments, so keeping that would be good as well. in juggling both sides of the story, the stories from mckinley seem so irrelevant and utterly ridiculous. fluffy and light and fun, but completely pointless. people watch glee for the fun factor, but over the course of the series, i think people have grown to care more for the characters, and in seeing the graduated characters being juggled like that, it just doesnt seem fair at all.

so i say, spilt it up! good stories for the new yorkers, good fun for 'glee'!
