"Glee" Episode 319 Recap: Prom-asaurus
Then Finn and Rachel dance as Santana and Quinn sing “Take My Breath Away.”
A lot happens during this song. First, Rachel can’t seem to take it in, saying, “Is this some kind of fun or something? we mean, like Kurt final year, is someone going to chuck pig’s blood on me next, like in Carrie?”
Finn assures her it’s real, and that by removing from where she was to where she is, she’s “an impulse to everybody in this room, including me.”
So, we know I’m kind of a pain in a donkey about Finn and Rachel, though here’s a thing: we determine Rachel has grown both as a chairman and a thespian during a final 3 years. But when Finn says she’s desirous people by how many she’s changed, we have to consternation what he’s articulate about.
Because a kind of changes that would be manifest to a world, to outsiders, to infrequent observers, are not a kind we saw Rachel go through. She understands herself better, she has let some-more people in, she’s attempted to be a better, reduction greedy friend. But she still comes opposite as a same driven, rather recurrent and neurotic, brilliantly gifted immature lady we desired in Season One.
The usually thing that has altered on a turn Finn seems to be articulate about is that she’s in a attribute with him and now she’s promenade queen. we mean, if this was about her singing, wouldn’t a fact that she flubbed her NYADA try-out make alien observers consider she didn’t have it all, during slightest for a moment?
Are we unequivocally ostensible to trust Rachel thinks being promenade black is a pointer of some kind of success – generally given we know she didn’t unequivocally get elected? Was that opening digression not only ostensible to be where Rachel’s conduct was during in that moment, though where a uncover wants to position her, carrying her attribute with Finn matter some-more than her many ardent life-long dream?
The one bit of wish we have that’s not a box is this:
“Never in a million years would we have suspicion that someone like me would win Prom Queen,” she tells Finn. “But if my friends trust in me adequate to see me this way, then… we don’t know, maybe anything’s possible.” Like removing behind on lane to apropos a star, and even removing into NYADA?
As a strain continues, we lift divided from Finn and Rachel. We see Artie dancing with Joe (I’m revelation you, a man is bi), Kurt with Blaine, Mike with Tina, and Puck with Becky.
Up on a stage, Quinn grips a mike mount and stands adult – in high heels, of course. An dumbfounded Santana slips her arm around her to solid her. Mercedes says, “Praise,” and Sam says, “It’s a promenade miracle!”
Joe is examination with astonishment on his face, and everybody starts applauding.
Brittany creates a gesticulate to Santana, sketch a heart on her face with her hands, afterwards indicating during her, mouthing, “I adore you.” Santana, mike in one palm and a other around Quinn, beams and winks during her girlfriend.
In a curtsy to final year’s promenade episode, we get a montage of lovable promenade shots – Joe, Artie,and Rory make a quite poetic integrate – including Klaine and Brittana, as a strain finally fades away.
Here’s a fact, though: frequency anything happened in this episode. Quinn went nuts again, though was over it by a finish of a night. We also schooled she can travel again, arrange of short-changing whatever she was, or we were, ostensible to get from a whole accident. What was that for if it’s over now?
I do think we’re going to see Rachel get her career concentration back, pleasantness of a extraordinary recovering energy of Finn’s approval and being “elected” promenade queen, though so distant that’s only a possibility. All a rest? Contrivance and filler. There weren’t even any good songs. Only 3 episodes left in a season, with many of a kids graduating, and this part was flattering many a waste.
Next week: Back-to-back episodes, one on Nationals, a other on body-swapping. Will any gays kiss? Will Blaine let Kurt disaster adult his hair? Will Brittany keep a ability to speak?
Who a ruin knows? It’s Glee.
