Glee Season 4 Finale Review: Brittany Explains It All

Glee S04E22: "All or Nothing"

So... Brittany is secretly a genius, Blaine is going to propose to Kurt anyway, Ryder's catfish was Unique all along (you kids nailed it!), and we're going to have to sit through an entire summer without knowing Rachel Berry's Broadway fate. I'm going to go ahead and assume that last one was a tactical move on Glee's part so that theoretically, when we come back and find out Rachel is a big, shiny Broadway star, our collective memory of her ridiculous Season 4 storyline will be dimmer and we will, therefore, be less outraged by the revelation. 

Or she'll be an understudy. I'm going with understudy. Think about it: It's not as ridiculous as landing the lead in a highly anticipated revival barely out of high school, plus it would easily set the stage for a new version of the standard Rachel story in which she's mocked and terrorized by her peers (the leading lady will undoubtedly be a monster), all while nursing her special little dream until given the proper chance to shine... which will probably be somewhere around the Christmas episode (maybe even in the actual Christmas episode? and involve her rival getting knocked up or something because Glee hates them sluts.

It appears that the fallout from the school-shooting-that-wasn't and Becky's apparent maybe-confession to Figgins has been dropped completely because Glee realized that there's no way to sing about it that wouldn't be awful. We did learn the identity of Ryder's catfisher, however—and unsurprisingly, it was Unique. Marley stepped up as the red herring for about ten minutes after Ryder fell into the sort of agitated and destructive state that sends most teachers into damage-control mode, but Mr. Schue isn't most teachers, so he just stood there and watched it like one of his students, none of whom seemed to understand why Ryder was upset. Or even seemed to care that he was upset. Ryder stormed off asking, "What's wrong with you people?" and he and I really connected in that moment because I've been asking the TV that same question since like, the middle of Season 3. 

When Unique finally revealed herself, she admitted that she strung Ryder along because she really, sincerely liked him—despite having no actual reason to, since Ryder was nothing but a dick about the whole gender thing. In fact, she said she only grew to like him more once they got to know each other. Ryder said that he'd never speak to Unique again because even though Glee had the opportunity to present a PSA that actually fit within the story naturally and made sense for the characters involved (like maybe making Ryder realize he was wrong when he insisted on calling Unique "he"), the show decided it'd rather shoehorn in another teenage marriage proposal because the only couples that matter are Klaine and Finnchel. 

Then again, WTF Unique? How did you think this was going to end?

So yeah, Blaine decided to move forward without Daddy Hummel's blessing and propose to Kurt anyway, because Glee has apparently decided that it needs a gay marriage storyline. Despite the apprehension of pretty much everyone he talked to about his plan—and it's important to note here that their less-than-eager stances had nothing to do with Kurt and Blaine both being dudes and everything to do with them being teenagers and not actually a couple anymore—Blaine just kept going until he got the go-ahead he wanted... from a kindly lesbian jeweler played by Patty Duke who he literally met ten minutes ago and who then invited him to sit ringside to her own marriage proposal to her partner of thirty years.  


At Regionals—which McKinley got to host because of tornado concerns in Indianapolis—everyone was in a panic because Brittany went on a power trip after MIT declared her an unsung genius and named"the most important scientific discovery ever" after her, breaking up with Sam and quitting both Cheerios and New Directions. Ryder allegedly quit the team too, in response to Unique's shenanigans. They showed up at the last minute and saved the day despite having probably skipped a buttload of important dress rehearsals, but hey, New Directions' choreography seemed to be comprised mostly of standing still and then wandering the stage aimlessly, so maybe they didn't miss much during their tantrums after all.

Ultimately, even though the Hoosierdaddies were armed with American Idol veteran Jessica Sanchez and, frankly, put on a more exciting show, they fell to New Directions, who clinched yet another Regionals victory. Then Emma and Schue got married because, like we established last weekGlee taking the time to show us how Schue and Emma patched up their broken relationship would have been super boring and so not song-worthy, so the writers spared us the details and just told us the couple was re-engaged. I did think that the low-key wedding was an appropriate display of their apparent off-screen reconciliation, though with Emma being assertive and Schue being understanding. I also thought their vows were cute. See, sometimes I say nice things about Glee


In the end, as a whole, Season 4 did work as a cohesive unit. It wasn't perfect, but a lot of that can be chalked up to the growing pains associated with figuring out how to switch back and forth between Lima and New York, figuring out what to do with the new students, and figuring out how to utilize the McKinley graduates without overshadowing the new faces—all of which, to be honest, still need some improvement. But season 4 was very much a transitional season, and when you look at it as such, the season did what it needed to do. 

Marley, Jake, and Ryder started out as blatant clones of Rachel, Puck, and Finn but have slowly come into their own as different characters with different quirks and personalities (okay, maybe not so much Jake). Kitty began as an impressively monstrous caricature so devoid of personality and motivation beyond being evil that I sincerely wonder whether her initial description in the script simply said "villain," but now she's people. Mostly.

The hardest part about complimenting Glee for anything is that a lot of the time, it's hard to tell what was intentional and what happened accidentally. I like that Kitty isn't just a vicious blonde bully anymore, and I like to think that's because someone made a conscious effort not to write her as such, but so much of what makes Glee Glee is the way that everything appears to just be thrown on the wall by a bunch of chimps with no rhyme or reason, and a lot of the time, the WTF goes hand-in hand with the FTW. Brittany getting into MIT as an early admission is weak, but the monologue about constantly being told she was dumb—and through glee club, realizing that she wasn't—was great, even if the crying was definitely excessive. The lockdown scene during "Shooting Star" was excellent, but everything after it was Glee at its absolute worst and the way that, as of this writing, the storyline was simply ditched is just appalling. 

So Season 4, in retrospect, had all the ups and downs that we've come to associate with Glee, and I think due to the general upheaval of the show's status quo, the bipolar extremes in quality were made all the more apparent. I like to think that Season 5 will build on the lessons learned during this season—and despite all my bitching and tough love, I'm a little bit excited. Just a little. Hope to see you there! Ciao! Kisses! 



MY GLEE SEASON 5 WISHLIST

– A resolution to the Becky storyline. ASAP.

– Understudy Rachel. I mean, I'm going to mock it it if happens, but frankly, I'm going to mock anything the writers make her do because Rachel is Rachel and since she's destined to win at everything anyway, let's at least make it a win that isn't insulting to people who aren't living in magical FairyTale New York where the subway smells like rainbows and buttercups. 

– Ditch the Kurt/Vogue.com stuff. (Sorry, SJP, it's not you. Honest. <3) There's just so much on Kurt's plate and it seems like because there's so much, none of it is ever addressed terribly well. 

– Stop getting the alumni involved with everything. Let the new kids win on their own. Let the graduates move on with their lives. 

– Less creepy, over-involved Schue. Please. 

– I know this last one isn't easy and can even be subjective episode to episode, but if there could be equally engaging stories happening in both New York and Lima, that would be awesome. It seemed like too many episodes this season split their time between the two cities, and every time it happened there was only one that anyone actually felt compelled to pay attention to. 



MUSICAL NOTES

– Last Glee playlist of the season: Rachel's "To Love You More" was pretty. None of the competition numbers excited me. Sorry. :(

– Sue's baby daddy is Michael Bolton. 

– "...wrongly accused football coach..." Really? A pedo Penn State joke? That's A) Not even terribly relevant anymore, and B) tasteless. 

– "Brittana is real."

– Oh hey, Sugar and Joe aren't dead. Huzzah.


What did you think of Glee's Season 4 finale? What do want to see in Season 5?

A week ago, I hadn't the faintest idea about what Glee was, other than I had heard that it was a TV series that young people fancied.

I couldn't think of a reason to watch even a single episode, but for reasons that are beyond me, I did so anyway, and now, again for reasons that I don't quite understand, I have seen all four seasons.

So here is my view:

Glee is one of those things that cannot be explained, like dark energy, string theory and teenage girls. It simply works.
Sure, it's not always great art and the are multiple issues. Still, it works.

Personally I have two issues, the first of which is simply that we've spend three "years" with a small group of people, that we now know intimately, and now they're all kind of left in the shadows while we have a new main group of people to get to know. I understand why, but it still sucks.

Secondly I have a very hard time understanding what's wrong with happy endings. Seriously, every single time that everything seem to come together, something goes wrong and it all fall apart. Like when Rachel choked at the audition in season three. Yes, it could have happened, but it's more likely for Mr. Shue and Sue to get married.
And why can't Rachel and Finn get each other and be happy? What it so damn wrong with happy endings? I understand the need for conflicts to keep things interesting. I know it's a balance act, but seriously, there has to be limits, otherwise everything will be expected to fail, thus there will be no sense of hope in those hopeless situation and the series be quickly become too boring to watch.

Why shouldn't Mercedes CD work out?
Why shouldn't Emmas OCD get better?
Why shouldn't Becky get lucky, just once in her short life?
Why is it that Rachel never learns? Yes she's a star, but she must have an IQ of 30 considering some of those choices she makes.

I could go one forever, but I'll stop now. Suffice to say that I enjoy happy endings, and just once I'd like to experience one, not followed by Armageddon.


Best regards.

i wonder if ryan or anyone from glee will ever see any of these reviews. it doesnt seem that anyone has really been too impressed with the episode or season as a whole. i definitely have not been. they brought up so many huge issues which are all great each on their own and yet none have been given actual time or been dealt with. (cancer, catfish, gay identity, gay marriage, sue and becky and the whole gun thing, nothing about schu and emmas fixing things, eating disorders... just to list a few....) then add all the messed up things that ppl n this season have done and its all ok - no fights or reprecussions for any of it. (ex: kitty confessing to altering marleys clothes) And then you have the characters that get too much show time while others dont get any at all...!! and what is the deal with unique!! i mean really its a horrible character and a horrible role model for kids these days (not in the gay way at all! i completely support that but in who he/she is and that there even is a he/she thing at all) and then the fact that she is always center stage always singing and really didnt even win the glee project! and everyone there hated her because she/he was so mean and diva-ish. so how in the world does he deserve that?!! besides there are enough gay people on the show to showcase that concept. and we've done that already with kurt and the bullying.... and then samuel gets knocked off the show just like that without explanation except when convenient for the writers. really this has just been one unsuccesful season. ironically the ny part of it actually has been done really well. and this as a finale?!?! horrible. wonder how they will pick up next season... how they will have a graduation in middle of a season.... very strange. sam is great - love that he's so central. and him and brit are great. santana always there is awesome... and her and brit again - love. but why do we barely see quin? she was so focal in the previous seasons - and now? kitty/ryder thing wouldve been great... oh well. kitty becomin nice has been awesome. and ryder has shined in every episode. it almost feels like he's the only full character there. which is great because he's - blake - is a great person and totally deserves...
so ya hopefully next season will pick up because right now i'm not feelin so hot about this show... sorry about the long dialogue... lot to say...

Glee really just needs to cut some of the characters. This whole season was horrible. Every characters story was spread out its felt like torture. I love most of the characters especially Tina but she is and apparently will always be under appreciated. I hate Unique's character and second Alex, the guy who plays her/him, didn't even win The Glee Project. Also when he was on The Glee Project everyone called him a diva and he was annoying. I think it was rude to put him in the show as a main character when they cut winners out after so many episodes. That being said I was so happy when they kept Sam because I just love him. overall I think they need to tone down the amount of characters or slim the plot lines. If they slimmed the plot lines and wove the plots together like they did in the first seasons, it would make a more cohesive show and actually emulate high school and college. Let's be real Glee, get your ish together!

I know Vanessa Langies' new show is scheduled for midseason, so that means she will appear in the first few episodes of the beginning of Glee's Season 5. One of the episodes there is the Nationals, if proposed.

I say Rachel's "To Love You More" was actually incredible. I said "wow!" afterward. out loud. as much as Celine Dion annoys me, you gotta admit she can sing her ass off. I think Lea Michele did as well.
On a general note: I generally watch Glee for the music so I like/dislike an episode based on what they choose to sing. This episode was decent, mostly because of Rachel. Oh, and the episodes are always approved when Santana is there - even if she doesn't sing.

One thing this review completely overlooked, and which I found to be the highlight of this episode, was the return of Santana and her role in supporting Brittany, through and through. I wasn't at all sure where this season would leave us in terms of their relationship and storyline, but I found the few moments they shared during this episode to be incredibly moving. "And then there's Santana..."

Though a part of me is disappointed that the writers didn't actually have Brittany say anything about Santana (especially compared to the number of lines she spoke to Sam in the very same scene), at the same time it was beautiful in that it illustrated that the two of them didn't NEED words to qualify their relationship: they are true soulmates, more than best friends or even lovers, and every person in that room knew it. Brittany and Santana walked away together, and maybe one day a part of me can forgive Glee for some of its faults, if these two characters can finally get their happy ending -- in each other's arms once more.

I'll try to make it quick XD:

1. Some days ago I was thinking "If Glee was a smart show, it would want us to think that the catfish was Unique because of her I'm-a-girl fight with Ryder (and the two storyline started in the same episode I think, so it would be so obvious), when in reality it's Marley because of the kiss (Unchained love <3), but since it's Glee, it's gonna be Unique, because why try too hard to make a storyline interesting?". So of course, Unique. Lame.
Ryder is the best new character and I love him <3 Blake is a truly amazing actor!

2. Klaine. Of course it's gonna happen and as a gay guy myself, I feel almost insulted instead of represented. And as Sam said, Blaine totally wants to do him.

3. Regionals. I only like Hall of Fame, because the boys are just amazing and Artie has always been the best male voice in there - too bad his character is a douche. And where the hell was Tina Diva being "I'm a senior so Marley back off"? Of course Rachel could do that to her last year, but she can't, because. In the end Brittany was so much more a diva... I miss the Tina that sang lines on Proud Mary and Bad Romance :(

I think they really missed out, after Rachel sang, for the people in the room to say "WTF was THAT? Seriously? A Celine Dion song? You realize pop songs aren't appropriate, right? Go back to Ohio. We were obviously on crack."

Apparently, it's a thing that gay (or just gender-confused) guys have to have crushes on straight guys. Uncontollable, self-destructive ones. And hey, that TOTALLY ought to help the homophobes come to accept gays...

The fact that straight people outnumber gays by nine to one means the weight of numbers does often result in you pining for someone you can't have. It's not that unusual.

Absolutely, however Glee seemed to be really focusing on that aspect in this season. Even the other way around with Tina pining for Blaine. It seemed a little disrespectful to have SO MUCH of it. To me, it sort of implied that gays and straights can't just be friends without one of them having a hopeless crush.

while yes it is a bit lame to approach this topic twice in one season. two things to think about. 1st - the two times portrayed here are showing it from each perspective. with tina from the one crushin on the gay and then with sam from the gay crushin on the straight. secondly - this is something that is an issue in all movies - the way the guy and the girl always end up together. so its not just the idea that gays and straights cant just be friends - its any sexual partners, guys girls, gays whatever. which is a really dumb concept. they do not always have to be together. adn as sarah said - considering the ratio of gay to straight it make a lot of sense that a number of gays would pine after straight. plus with two straight or two gay people there is a possibility of something happenig with gay and straight there isnt so thats what makes it so potent...

The finale was kind of weak, but the New Directions were too well-known to win it all. What I am concerned about is the aftermath of Rachel's performance earlier. I know that both Brittany and Sugar are leaving early, Brittany is graduating and Sugar is transferring at the same time. Also, Tina, Artie, Blaine and Sam are graduating afterwards. The Wemma wedding was successful and Sugar acted like a flower girl in that part to earn a few more publicities. But I think that Klaine engagement has to get turned off also and the Brittana engagement cannot be brought up at all. The remaining characters should be Marley, Kitty, Jake, Ryder, Unique and Joe. The Nationals should occur somewhere in the beginning of Season 5 and those six characters are leaving after that. But the first twelve episodes of Season 5 are more important, in order to celebrate this show's 100th episode by then!

It looks Mike, played by Harry Shum Jr., will never return also. Also, Sugar might graduate along with Brittany, Tina, Blaine, Artie and Sam on the 100th episode and Sugar and Sam will both never return also!

Tbh, this episode did not feel like a finale....if it weren't for the news that the finale would end with "cliffhangers", I would miss it....Honestly, Regionals was a joke, both from the New Directions's song list and both from the competition....the set-up felt weak and terribly written. Remember back to s1, how much drama was going on, now it feels like The New Directions won just because. Good notes on the barely there "choreography". As for the Unique catfish story line, I am sorry, but I don't dig it. Unique is a total pig for catfishing Ryder. Yes, the guy wasn't great to Unique at first, but lets just talk seriously about this issue - I have nothing against people like Unique, but sometimes some people like Ryder need more to understand people like Unique, this is not about acceptance, this is about understanding. So a 16 yearold boy should not get his head bitten of just because he does not understand who Unique is. It takes time to know and understand how people are. Its called life. But my main issue with this whole Unique being catfish sl is that Ryder obviously sees this as Unique getting back at him but its stupid since Ryder apologized episodes ago and has Unique's back. So this comes of as being really mean and the catfisher should have been someone really trying to explain everything to Ryder and make him understand; taking this to the level of sharing intimate secrets is just plain creepy! Making someone feel good that they can confess something so personal and then playing with them like that is just wrong and given that no one else in Glee club was on Ryder's side, I completely supported his decision to quit the club because still after one whole season together, its still no a united club. Tina, Artie and Blaine and Brit were always hanging out most of the time together, we had the Tina/Blaine sl, Blaine/Sam sl, Sam/Brittany sl. Only Kitty from the newbies is sort of building contact with the old members. Marley, Jake and Ryder and Unique still feel like foster kids...as Brit said. Because they barely interact with anyone else from the glee club veterans. Which is partly why them competing at Regionals felt weak, Brit leaving being actually sad and Ryder about to leave - being completely understandable but totally stupid given next season - Brit is out, and Sugar is leaving too as the actress got cast in another show. No one even voiced up after Ryder decided to leave, which shows just exactly how much no one cares anymore for the newbies. If glee is to really work next season, the old cast should interact with the old and the new ones should form a new glee club so that there is no veterans vs the new comers. As for Rachel, getting the role would mean dreams come true way too easily on this show, so I would rather see her really fight for her role, or be cast as someone else to still be in the production of Funny Girl but work her way to being a star not just getting everything served on a silver platter because she muffin-stalks the producers.

wow. i so agree with you. all through the whole catfish thing al i could think was how sick everyone was being to ryder. also about the sexual abuse.and truthfully someone changing his clothes and identity would confuse anyone. should confuse you because it doesnt make sense. ryder never said he doesnt accept he said it just doesnt make sense - pick a side. and then all of a sudden everyone gets all up on him because of it. as in how dare you not accept unique - and yet no one accepted ryder for his opinion so how accepting is glee club really?? and yes the catfish thing so sick. seriously nasty sick. something wrong with the person who does that. and then carries it so far and doesnt at all admit. completely used ryder and... just sick.and then all of a sudden ryder is weird for being upset about all this. and mr schu just sitting there doing nothing when ryder freaks out. man this show is weird sometimes!! completely does not show a good example of how to act. and all that about how the group is so not united! my gosh yes. the show this year has so failed - it was all so chopped up and then in weird places all of a sudden connected like in a song that someone in lima and ny just "happen" to both be singing??! and yes if rachel gets the part so stupid!! as is the fact that new directions keep winning without meriting it at all.

I wonder how it must feel for Samuel Larsen to be so overshadowed by Alex Newell. Larsen BEAT Newell for the prize of being on the show and after that draining process they brought Newell in, and gave him more screen time and more interesting stories (not that the stories are terribly interesting, but that they gave him any at ALL.)

Samuel Larsen got to join a Christian club and get a boner from Dianna Agron, and he and Sugar have both had trouble EXISTING some episodes. Meanwhile, Newell is never gone and is getting dramatic storylines.

I'm not saying Newell doesn't deserve it, just saying... Larsen must be a little irritated.

Samuel Larsen and Damian McGinty have to be at least a little ticked. The writers gave them nothing to work with.

I think the Rory/Brittany thing could've been really good, but they moved away from that fast. Heck, the Sugar/Rory relationship could've been fun as well but that didn't even have a chance to develop.

And Samuel had nothing in that character. What I think is funny is that a little tweak and they really could've had something. Make him a laid-back hippie who loves to smoke and walks around school with his guitar on his back. How much farther is that from his original character? Not that far imo, but I think it opens up a lot more story-lines/quips/screen time if they made that switch. Just another missed opportunity.

And Newell is always singing too. I love his voice, but Larsen is really good too. Still, remember that at the time of Glee Project Murphy didn't actually need Newell nor Lindsay Pierce, having Rachel and Mercedes for another season... ever since he met Cameron he wanted to write a christian guy blessing a gay couple and Larsen was just it :(

It was an overall good, solid episode, but definitely not a season finale worthy. I personally didn't care about the whole catfish story. It's very 2011 and we knew all along that it was Unique. Less attention needs to be spend on Marley and Ryder. They are lame and boring characters. I feel that a season finale episode is as good as it's final sequence. This episode's ending was weak and didn't end with something big. Plus, I wanted to see more of Rachel in this episode and I still can't believe that they devoted the final scene to Shuester and Emma getting married.

You know a finale is not good when my brother says "It was the finale?" this with Bones (sorry) we're the weakest finales of the season so far.

I love Blaine & Kurt but the wedding proposal storyline is just plain stupid. Showing the box in Blaine's behind his back at the end is not a cliffhanger. If they wanted the cliffhanger to be Rachel they should of had her sing (which they did) then at the end of the ep have her get the call & not let us know what happened.

This was the worst season & not because of the two different cities (that actually kind of saved it a bit) the problem was the dropping of storylines as you said with the Becky thing, what the shooter thing just disappeared? What happened to Brody, or Adam, wasn't Kurt dating him? And Joe & Sugar suddenly appeared for the finale?

The ideas are there, the problem is executing them to make the show seem like a series & not little sketches. Also I agree on let the new kids grow (I like Ryder, Marly, Jake)

Come on Glee you can do better

Yes I agree with MaryAnn. The number that I love from the finale was just Rachel's To Love You More. What's wrong with the regional this year? All the numbers were just so-so and kinda forgetable. But storywise... I loved it. It felt like a sweet goodbye to Brittany's character (She will not come back in season 5?)

I also worry that Ryder is not coming back. I like his character and Blake really did well playing this role. I expected more from Jessica Sanchez but..... oh well....

I hope Brody comes back too next year. I mean, just because his character is a gigolo and he isn't worth it?

And I was wondering, what is the theme of this year's regional? Did I miss something here?

this is a weak and seems rushed season finale. Mr. Shue said that the character of Jessica Sanchez is a powerhouse but at the regionals all she sang are pop songs and moving from one place to another is so distracting.

Unlike the previous season ender where i'm actually excited for the coming season, this left me with an "i don't care anymore" feeling.

Remember when their rivals actually were part of the New Directions' storyline so that you could care when they sang? Jessica Sanchez is probably a good singer, but I couldn't care less about her songs (two songs were really too much), just thinking about how it was when they confronted with Jesse and Vocal Adrenaline or the Warblers!

As a whole, this season was fun, sad, disappointing, and a step forward. Now, the amount of each varies (sad>fun, disappointing>step forward) but that is my summary for the season in a nutshell. And now I go to the Season Finale: LEAVE RYDER ALOOOOOOOOOOOOONE! Sorry, but I couldn't resist.

First off, the songs: I actually really liked the song choices and thought that there were a lot of songs without feeling like they were forced upon us. I get that it's Regionals so it's expected, but it was still a lot of songs, at least to me it was, and I enjoyed a lot of them. Success.

Brittany: I'm glad that she got into a college that appreciates her...even though I'm not sure what exactly she's going to be doing. Also, Brittana! They even mentioned it! Glee, except for maybe Community, is the best with giving a little wink or breaking the wall to the fans that love the show so much. So great. I am a little sad about her and Sam though since I kind of liked them, but if this means that there is more Brittana then I'll accept it. This brings up yet another thing though: Why can't they branch off into a new Glee???? I get that it will never ever happen, but I'm still going to talk about it. Now we have Artie probably going into NY and Brittany only a little car-ride away (about 3 and a half hours; I looked it up :P); in other words, half of the Originals are going to be in the same vicinity, all the time. Do something about it with a new show. Please.

Blaine: Stop it. Don't do it. Try to work him back together with Kurt, but don't go proposal on us. It's going to end up bad one way or another. It is nice to see Blaine genuinely happy again though....no, stop it, he won't be happy once Kurt says no or says yes, then instantly regrets it and breaking it off later. That's all I got to say.

Ryder/Catfish/New Kids:......dang it, Glee. I thought it was Unique in the beginning then thought "no, that's too obvious. They just want me to think that." So then I thought it could be Kitty (I approve), or Marley (I approve) or, as a little rumor, it could be Murphy's little crush on Glee Project Aylin (I approve). But no, all that thought was for naught as it was Unique and I disapprove. I won't lie, I really dislike the Unique character. Some of that is because I dislike the actor a great deal. Another is because where can this character go? If you want to be recognized as a girl, okay but you aren't a girl no matter how hard you try. So who can Unique date? I may be wrong but I don't count anybody. And if there were odds on it, Ryder would probably be the one with the longest. Also, I see no problem whatsoever with how Ryder reacted. I don't know how many people in the club actually knew the truth, but it seems like Marley and Jake knew for a while. And they're supposed to be the people he's closest to? That's such a low-class thing to do even if you were trying to protect your other friend. You knew how much this thing bothered him and yet you let it continue. I just can't understand that. And if the other people in Glee knew about it? Even worse, but I don't think they did. This brings up two things though: 1) Ryder better come back or I riot. I don't know how many people agree with me, but Ryder was my favorite character and I loved to see him on my tv. So, he better come back. 2) Please have Ryder become the bad boy. Him+Kitty vs. Marley+Jake. You would have so many more possibilities and you give two more of the New Guys a legit role together. It would be great so I know you won't do it and I will be disappointed.

Overall, I liked this season but wished they didn't try to cram as many things down our throats. Just do a couple main story-lines an episode and maybe advance a sub-plot while you're at it. If you do that, that would be awesome. Also, I will miss this reviews. MaryAnn was/is awesome and really brought some realness to Glee which is always funny and makes sense. Till the next season!

P.S. I might even try to shorten my comments next season, but I doubt it :P

P.P.S.
Rachel: Your theory is almost directly with mine from the comments last week except with a little tweak. I think she gets the understudy, the lead is a bitch, Rachel is depressed because she's being treated semi-fairly, and the director becomes a mentor to her. Then Rachel starts gaining back her confidence until it culminates with the lead thinking she isn't being treated like the show-stopping diva that made this show so popular. So the lead leaves before a big time show (because without her the show can't go on, right?) thus thrusting Rachel into the spot light. She freaks out in pure Rachel fashion until the director gives her "that talk" that Schue/Finn/etc always gave to calm her down. Finally, she goes out and belts it. When this happens, I don't know but that's how I think it goes down. Gives us the underdog, Rachel-is-sad, bitch-hates-Rachel, and Rachel-pulls-through story-lines all in one. Boom.

One of the things I like most about Glee this season, is that it's pretty clear the writers are fully aware of the plot holes and how ridiculous some storylines are.

Some of the funniest parts are the meta jokes, like Santana asking Sam "And are we sure it's not just Brittany 3.0 week in Glee club?" Or Shue asking "Are Joe and Sugar here?", after both characters had been missing for several episodes. Or some episodes ago, when Tina had totally forgotten (like the rest of the viewers) whether she was still a member of the Cheerios or not. Or how they lampshaded Kitty's change in personality last episode by having her tell Artie that she likes to switch it up and be unpredictable. The writers are poking fun at their own show in a good natured way that makes me love the show even more.

I wish Heather Morris all the best with motherhood, but I sincerely hope this is not the last we've seen of Brittany S. Pierce.

How about this for a Season 5 storyline...

Sugar gets mildly famous (from a YouTube video or something) and it gets to her head. Everyone else is confused and jealous, especially because she has no musical talent.

I think this situation is rich in irony and could create some animosity along with some interesting subplots.

Wow, such a terrible season finale. The New York stuff with Rachel is just left hanging and barely shown much. And to have this big Brittany based season finale? What the??? It really seems like it ended with a regular, middle of the season ep. that was easily forgotten. After winning Regionals, now what? Nationals are suppose to be at the end of the season so now are they just continued into next season?

I'm always curious about Ryan Murphy's fascination of teenagers wanting to get married, haha.

I do feel good about the new characters like Marley, Jake and Ryder. They really need a bunch of the old ones permanently gone now. I sense that with how this finale went so let's hope so.

So to me it just felt like a mid season finale and really blah, big time.

I have been a gleek for three years now and I can honestly say I'm a bit (too much) disappointed with the Season 4. Last year, I really didn't get all the complaining about the Season 3 storylines, because it was my favourite season so far :) I was genuinely happy with the final episodes of Season 3 and all the New Directions performances made me cry. Back then, I KNEW Glee wouldn't ever be the same.

And truth is: it wasn't the same.
Glee changed drastically during Season 4, and I agree with you about the "growing pains" the show might be suffering because of its new dimensions.
I really didn't enjoy some of the Lima storylines, I didn't like Ryder's reaction to finding out that Unique was the catfisher, neither seeing Blaine being so awkward all the time since he and Kurt broke up (and that costs me because I really love him).

I must admit I enjoyed getting to know the new characters and I loved Marley, Jake and Unique at first, but now... IDK anymore. I kinda am always expecting more of Marley and I think what really shocked me during this finale was the ND performance at regionals. It wasn't worth winning :( I honestly think "Outcast" was the best original song and "All or Nothing" just wasn't good enough. They weren't even able to fill the stage with their energy. It was just soooo FLAT!!
Although I still liked the songs and their vocals, I think this one was, by far, New Direction's worst performance at a show choir competition.

On the other hand, I am really happy about Rachel's storyline in New York this season (I think she's grown a lot) and hope they continue to give her what she deserves on the 5th Season!! She was amazing with "To Love You More" and deserves to get Fannie Brice.

Anyway, still love Glee, love you Gleeks <3
We must have faith in the next season and in all these awesome characters :)

Kisses and hugs to you all <3
PS: I did enjoy the amazing songs through this season :)

The finale was kind of a letdown since nothing felt 'final' about it, except for Brittany's goodbye speech which was easily the best scene of the episode. I'll miss Heather. Anyway, there just seems to be way more cliffhangers than there should be.

Sorry, but I've said from the start that Glee is about a team effort. The Hoosierdaddies focused on 1 person singing, so while her singing may have been better, it lacked the "team" focus that's needed. I also thought the McKinley dancing was better, though it has been a huge downturn frmo what we saw in season 2.

Personally what I want in season 5 is the resolution to the Becky story ASAP. Becky went in to confess to the Principal. It should have been resolved the next week, and frankly Sue needs to be back at McKinley.

I also want them to bring back Finn to work with Ryder ASAP. With Brittany being gone and Ryder walking out, the Glee club is 1 member short for what they'd need at Nationals. Ryder needs to be that missing person, and Finn is the most likely one to bring him back since he wasn't there when all the Ryder catfishing went on.

I am going to wonder though if Glee is going to be legit and keep MIT as Massachusetts Institute of Technology or if they will change it to Manhattan Institute of Technology. They seem to be focusing the old school members on New York, and having MIT be in Manhattan would allow them to incorporate Brittany into the New York storylines with Kirk, Rachel, and Santanna.

That was the most disappointing Glee finale I've ever seen.

1. Wtf "regionals winners"? When the hoosierdaddys were *vastly* superior? So lame, so so lame.

2. Did we just totally forget about the fact that Finn is supposed to be some kind of teaching assistant and has nonetheless vanished off the face of the earth (I know Cory is in rehab but they didn't even go, "oh, where's Finn?")?

3. BLAINE'S MARRIAGE PROPOSAL ARGH. Possibly the most perfect example of what is so simultaneously ground-breaking and also shit about Glee. Ending an award-winning series' entire season with a gay cliffhanger? So awesome. Ending it with an 18 year old determinedly planning to propose to someone he's not in a relationship with who lives in a different state, even though every single person who is close to them has said it's a bad idea AND both of whom got a front row seat to the Finchel Marriage That (Thankfully) Never Was?? WTF???

I love Darren, and I love Blaine, and I love Klaine, and I cried my eyes out at Come What May, but this marriage thing is so just on Ryan Murphy's mind because of SCOTUS and The New Normal, and it's like he's found the nearest gay characters he can to make it happen, regardless of how wildly inappropriate the circumstances.

I'll be watching Season 5, but I have to say that I'm not even really looking forward to it now.

Okay, can I just say whoever came up with the whole "I'm going to ask Kurt to marry me" storyline should be fired on the spot! It's so damn ridiculous! Kurt and Blain are not even TOGETHER ANYMORE! What's the point of the whole thing? Of course, he is going to say no.....sigh

Apart from the stupid thing, Brittany leaving was a bit overly melodramatic....

Ya, they won Regionals, I totally didn't see it coming! LOL <

Finally, I hate how the whole catfish storyline was resolved. I did initially think it was Unique, but than I thought the writers would do the smart thing and have Marley be the one catfishing Ryder.< You can't tell me that kiss meant nothing for Marley!~ Her having feelings for Ryder, and being afraid to admit it would make perfect sense< But alas, it was Unique...there's not much more they can do than Ryder hating Unique...

Wishes for Season 5:

-Get rid of Kurt/Rachel New York storylines. Seriously, the show should focus on what's happening at the highschool. Afterall, that's the whole point, no? The show is called "Glee" for a reason, and not "AWMG KURT AND RACHEL'S FABULOUS LIFE IN NEW YORK"< Am, I right or what? lol

-Develop Marley/Ryder's relationship further. Seriously, Marley/Jake is so boring!

-More Kitty! XD<

-Get rid of useless characters. What's the point of Joe/Sugar? Does anyone care about them?

did anybody else notice that last week they said Brittany got early admission but it was tonight's episode when she told everybody? way to go, Glee writers! I originally thought they'd lose regionals but now that they decided to cross over this season into the next then who knows. but that just seems like it could throw EVERYTHING off unless they jump ahead and go from graduation to next school year's first day.

I KNEW IT! totally called it being Unique months ago, or Marley.. so I was right on both accounts technically, but I knew Marley was just covering for Unique when she confessed.

also, that song that Marley 'wrote' sounds like it should've been an Owl City song or something

When Schue first mentioned they were doing Icona Pop, I was scared they'd butcher it in typical Glee fashion. I'm sorry to say I was right, given the performance's overall lack of energy, and the decision to have Kitty sing it in some kind of Barbie-doll voice that really didn't do the song justice.
Also, I'm glad you noticed how Schue just stood by while Ryder screamed at everyone and kicked school inventory. It's like he's not even trying to pretend to be a teacher anymore. And given the glee club's reaction to Ryder's frustration/pain with the whole catfish story, it's no surprise he wants to quit. They're supposed to be friendly and accepting, but when one of their own is in trouble, if their name isn't Rachel, no one seems to care. The writers are still trying to portray the New Directions as bullied underdogs, but the fact of the matter is, they can be real self-absorbed jerks, and the only evidence of bullying we've seen lately were shots of them getting slushied while a sad song played in the background, almost like an afterthought from the writers, a way to remind the viewer why they should be rooting for these poor tortured souls.

Randomly, I did have to keep checking to make sure this was the season finale. It sort of seemed like, let's just end this and we can start fresh next season. What I fear is that Ryan Murphy will be again so busy with (I assume) the second season of the New Normal and completing AHS again that by the time he turns his attention to this show again it is totally off the rails. I mean, it is clear where you saw attempts at fixes of stupid storylines (i.e., Kitty just can't be totally evil, you totally ruined the bulima storyline, etc). I actually didn't realize until the very end that we hadn't seen New York since Rachel finished her song until the end. I mean, honestly, this show just sort of serves as a way for me to go to bed without obsessively thinking about what just happened on Person of Interest.

Sometimes I feel like the only reason I watch Glee anymore is because I feel like I have to out of some sense of loyalty since I have watched it from the beginning.

This season marked a big change for me in how I watch Glee. It used to be that I would watch it immediately that night either live or starting just long enough into it that I could fast forward through the commercials but still end the episode on time. And I would keep the episodes sitting there on my DVR until the season came out on DVD. This year, on the other hand, I might watch it that night but I might not. And episodes weren't saved.

I felt a lot of the time like this was a half-assed attempt at a transition season. It's like because Fox told RM, nope we don't wanna do the spin off right now, he said fine I'll keep it one show but barely made an effort to work the 2 cities thing work. There was some stuff they eventually got right (or at least better) and other stuff they just absolutely dropped the ball on. I have always known that you don't try and apply real-world logic to Glee. It just doesn't work. But this is the first season where I found myself continually banging my head against the wall about things.

This finale summed up the season perfectly I think. There were some really nice moments, like the Brittany farewell and a lot of her storyline in this ep (was I the only one who caught her bump even in the looser clothing?) and I have to admit I did awh once or twice during the wedding, but this just didn't feel like a finale. There were too many things that were just thrown out there and too many storylines that were just ignored.

I am hopeful that they can maybe get their act together a tiny bit for next season, but, being Glee, I'm not gonna hold my breath.

First off, major props to Blake and Heather, both were amazing in their scenes for their storylines. It felt so moving when Brittany revealed what was going on with her, how she didn't feel so dumb thanks to glee club and how she was going to miss everyone. I can see Finn being brought in next season to bring Ryder back next season. I am so sick of them having a character not agree with a teen wedding then suddenly do a complete turnaround out of nowhere and suddenly become on board. Blaine is seriously becoming really creepy, first he's all us being together is destiny and now he's not only planning on asking Kurt to marry him but telling people they're together when they haven't even discussed getting back together (I know he then said they weren't technically together but it was still creepy that he even thought that). Then there's the fact that Blaine hasn't really thought about what he wants to do because, let's face it, the only reason he mentioned nyc and nyada is because Kurt is there and has nothing to do with Blaine or his future. Brittany had some good lines like the one about mr Shue's unhealthy closeness to his students. I found it funny that the show seemed to realize that they never mentioned why Sugar and Joe are absent half the time when Will asked about them yet they still didn't mention where they've been. I kinda hope they bring Jessica back coz ND needs a new/serious rival coz the whole Warblers rivalry just sucks imo. Wow glee actually remembered Sue had a baby and that the baby had a famous dad. All in all, I'm gonna miss the show until it comes back as well as these reviews.

I've held on for as long as I can, but it's time I bid Glee a not very fond adieu. I've suffered through enough stupidity and inconsistency to last me a lifetime, so though you may be returning for at least two more seasons, Glee, I will not.

I WILL, however, read these recaps to tie up the remaining storylines. Because I just can't look away from the train wreck of this season, apparently.

Seriously, what the hell did Unique think was going to happen? Ryder isn't the best character, but it's hard to blame him for this. If I was in his position, I would have reacted THE EXACT SAME WAY (except I wouldn't hugged Unique at Regionals). And it has nothing, nothing at all, to do with homophobia. It's the fact that Ryder fell in love with a cute blonde, realized she didn't exist, and the real person was someone he had no physical attraction to, somebody who had been LYING to him, somebody who is, at least biologically, male, which to a straight person WOULD ABSOLUTELY matter, and, what's more, somebody who is kind of insufferable as a character.

If Glee continues to develop this and Ryder has feelings for Unique, it will be awful, because that wouldn't happen.

As a whole I totally agree with your analysis of this season. It was very transitional and they're clearly still trying to find their footing but the things that worked this year really worked and the things that didn't REALLY didn't. So much of it does feel like its written with only the vaguest thought to future episodes but Is till have hope they'll work to fix the glaring problems this season had. Hopefully Kurt and Santana will both have more exciting storylines in NYC instead of being Rachel's cheering section so the NYC section of this show can be stronger and have more episodes dedicated to it. For the McKinley side, next year I hope they work on creating actual, organic storylines instead of their "ripped from the headlines" PSA checklist.

NOTE: I don't think Heather's crying in that scene was "excessive" so much as it was her true feelings. It felt very real to me which made the scene so much more emotional to watch.

I disagree. I found the whole Brittany "crying 10 minutes while saying goodbye" a bit overly melodramaric. It didn't feel real to me, it just felt like she was overacting.< XD

I didn't mind Brittany's scenes at all. Heather isn't really an actress or singer and everybody knows it. Glee fans know it's very possible it really was the character's final appearance on the show though. The writers did a good job of leaving it so it felt like a final goodbye, but leaving it open enough so she can be worked back into the show in some capacity in the future.

Easily the most unexciting finale of Glee ever. It was like they were checking off their "to-do" list.

- I liked how Joe/Sugar's absence just gets swept under the rug by a simple role call. "Is everyone here? Joe? Sugar?" Then I felt like the camera crew tried to squeeze them into every shot to make up for the past 7 to 50 episodes they hadn't been in.
- I guess Finn decided to quit after sorta getting hired again?
- At least we're finally past the whole Will/Emma marriage fiasco, which has easily been the most unnecessary plotline of the entire series that was just there for the sake of extra unnecessary drama. It was fitting that the only storyline to be wrapped up in the finale was the only one we didn't care about.
-OMG Unique is Katy! Shocker. So glad we got that figured out... 5 episodes after everyone stopped caring. I think the only person who didn't see that coming was Ryder. Although I did almost like the scene where he was throwing his tantrum. It seemed believable, which is rare for Glee. But Lord forbid he demand everyone take out there cell phones so he can figure it out! That's definitely crossing the line.

- Favorite new character of the season? Kitty. She may be evil, but at least she's got funny lines and personality. At least she's not bland like Marley or Jake, a transgender caricature of Mercedes (Unique), or nonexistent (Joe, Sugar, or any other character that sometimes is/isn't there). If I had to choose a second favorite, it'd be Ryder. His character has some kind of depth and personality, too. I guess.
- Most underused main character of the season? Artie.

- Considering how intense and big real show choir is, it was really sad watching them wander aimless around stage and sing forgettable songs, and sadder still to see them actually win. I think this was probably the worst competition arrangement in the entire series. I mean, seriously, it was abysmal. I mean, was there any real choreography in there that couldn't be taught in like 5 minutes?

I liked that Sugar/Joe thing. I thought it was a funny way to play off of the fact they got no screentime. Yes Glee generally makes self-referential jokes about their problems instead of actually working to fix them but did we really want Joe to get more screentime? He was either going to sit silently in the back or not be there at all.

I feel like it's heading for a Ryder likes Unique, but he's not gay, because Unique is a lady not a large gay black man. Ryan Murphy you preachy twat. Also It's always sunny in Philadelphia already did it (obviously not in a preachy way)

Agreed... mostly; not my favorite episode, but I do love Glee overall; like another commenter said last week, Glee is my "take a break" show, along with TBBT. Rachel's number was awesome, and yeah, I didn't care much for any of the Regionals numbers. I also agree that Klaine should just go back to being boyfriends and dump the whole marriage proposal thing, at least until the end of Season 6. I also agree that instead of switching between Lima and NY, they should focus full episodes in Lima or NY.
Highlights of season 4: most of the ensemble numbers: Some Nights, Mamma Mia, This Is The New Year, Closer, Anything Can Happen... these were my favorites; Roz Washington is hilarious, she and Sue should go heat to head more often; their verbal sparrings are great.

See you in 12 weeks or so.

My number one issue with Glee is that they choose their set list for big competitions the week of the competition. I know singing the same song over and over again doesn't make for good TV (he took a midnight... zzzzzzzzzzz) but honestly, every week they have a different lesson, and pretend like they might sing one of the songs at regionals, but they don't and it was all a lie. STOP LYING TO ME GLEE!!!

regarding the season as a whole, it seems to me that the habit of puzzling changes in the behavior of characters has become even more extreme, to the detriment of the show. But I cannot say I didn't like it.

Only thing: please stop making those ensemble numbers and the end of EACH episode where everyone sings happily! It was nice before because of the subtleties of some stares or movements between the characters, but in the last episodes they were pretty pointless and extremely irritating!

First, my two favorite one-liners of the episode:
- Sam : "He wants to do me. (to Blaine) What? You do."
and
- Brittany: "They started as enemies, the became friends. Then enemies, then friends, then everyone stopped caring."
Overall, I enjoyed the episode, it had a lot of sweet moments : the engagement and the micro-wedding, Brittany's comeback and final speech.
I felt like the resolution of the catfish story was a downer. And Ryder is such a d*ck, seriously. He's just Finn 2.0, as insensitive and stupidly violent (WTF, Mr. Schue didn't even react to him trashing the room?). I didn't care for any musical numbers ("All or nothing" was empty), even if I liked the Muppets touch with "The Rainbow connection". Sugar was back, yay! Really didn't get enough of her this season. I love how characters always seem to disappear for no reasons for a while then come back without explanation.

What I want for season 5 is Blaine deciding to take more time before proposing (Kurt don't even seem to care "We're not a couple") and Kurt and Adam actually having time to discuss and let their relationship grow and eventually go.

The big thing is we DON'T know that. Heather has been clear about her personal life taking precedent over her show biz life. It remains to be seen if she wants to return in some capacity after having her baby which is probably due in October.

She will be clearly an understudy, otherwise goodbye Rachel character.

I have the feeling that we haven't seen the last of the Unique-Ryder story. Why do I sense a Ryder "I was conflicted about it because, you know, I'm not gay, but realized I love you regardless of the sex" storyline coming in season 5?
After all, Ryder has been one of the most used characters this season...

And I hate the gay marriage storyline already! I would like to see Kurt and Blaine coming together again (even if in this moment Adam looks much more suited to Kurt than Blaine, who has become very irritating in the second half of the season)

Had to be the worst Glee finale in my book. There was literally no resolutions. Britanny leaving needed more time and drama. Unique as Catfish? Everyone suspected that in the very beginning, but they had to drag it into multiple episodes? They could have used that time to give Britanny a proper goodbye, or explained where Finn has gone, or finished the Becky storyline. Rachel was completely forgotten after her call back performance.

New Directions won after Jessica Sanchez's stunning performance? To me it was hard to believe. It should have ended with a tie. I don't like new characters but I hope Jessica returns in some capacity.

One of the major reasons I'm still watching Glee is the original cast. If they start getting rid of them one by one, then it isn't Glee anymore. I know the high school setting is way more 'marketable' than NY (If they focus on NY, it will be another Smash and we know that show isn't a ratings draw), but the original cast and characters are great. I honestly don't know what I want for season 5. Less characters and more consistency seems to be the obvious choices.
