Who didn’t cry during this episode?
You are NOT normal
Don’t Speak was a good one – it was heartwrenching and bittersweet.
My most favorite quotes are during the last two scenes (and my most favorite song was the LAST song).
Rachel: [to Finn] This place is kind of like our Jerusalem. All roads seem to just lead us back here.
Finn: I just needed time to think.
Rachel: You had four months. I hated you for what you did to me at that train station.
Finn: I was trying to help you.
Rachel: I hated you. And then when I got to New York, I thought how much you love me. And how hard that must have been for you. And I thought this…this is what a man looks like. This is how a man loves. But you, not telling me where you were for four months, and sneaking out before sunrise in the middle of the night without saying goodbye, that is not being a man, Finn.
Finn: I was trying to give you your freedom.
Rachel: I don’t need you to give me my freedom. I am a grown woman. I don’t need you to hide from me to keep me from doing what is right for me.
Finn: Who am I? I barely even graduated high school and my life has absolutely no direction.
Rachel: Don’t you get it? No matter how rich, or famous, or successful I become, when it comes to you, I’m always going to be that moon-eyed girl who freaked you out at a first glee rehearsal. You are the first boy who made me feel loved, and sexy, and visible. You are my first love. And I want more than anything for you to be my last. But I can’t do this anymore. At least not now. We’re done.
Finn: Wow. What am I going to do with my life? I don’t have my girl. I don’t have a job. I don’t have a place in this world.
Rachel: You have you, and that’s better than anyone else on the planet as far as I’m concerned.
And then Coldplay’s The Scientist plays:
Finn came to New York, not bearing a gift for dance recital, but to “reunite” with Rachel, only ending up in a break-up. I am so sympathetic towards Finn’s flight I am looking forward to seeing how the story plays out for him. Other than Finchel, I am pretty much just want scoop on Tina and Mike!
