6×13 Dreams Come True

This post is about the very last Glee episode, 6×13, which was called ‘Dreams Come True’. To read my post on the episode that aired right before this one called ‘2009’, click here!

Glee is over. Forever. I’m at a loss for words, really. I don’t think I have ever cried this hard about a TV show. And even as I type, just thinking about it brings me to tears… ‘Dreams Come True’ was the last episode ever and it was great. Honestly. I loved it. And I’m not just saying that. Yes, there were some parts that I didn’t love or bits I wish had happened. Either way, I give the episode a 4.5 out of 5, because yes, as perfect as it was, I did have a few small criticisms. Don’t hate me too much for saying so, because y’all have to know that I did love the episode and I will always, always love Glee. So here is what happened in the last episode of Glee.

It starts with Will, fixing his tie as he thinks about when he was in high school and won Nationals. We get quick flashbacks to his team being coached by Lillian, the lady from the plaque. He snaps out of his memory as Kurt, Blaine, and Rachel come in to take him to the stage where the current ND (including Mason and Spencer and them) are on stage awaiting their Nationals results. Yes, that club (including the Warblers) made it to Nationals. As the announcer speaks, we see the team waiting. We also see Jane and Mason holding hands, which I appreciated because I was wondering what had happened with them after ‘Child Star’. It is then announced that ND/Warblers win Nationals and I, along with everyone on screen, cheered. I didn’t think we’d see ND anymore, so I’m really glad we got some closure in that.

Later, we see Will sitting down with the Superintendent, and he tells Will that the District Board Of Education has decided to make McKinley a school for the arts. Will is shocked. The Super explains that despite budget cuts, Will managed to successfully run Glee club at McKinley, and it’s been so great that McKinley shall now be a full time arts school. And what’s more is that Will is going to be the principal.

Three months later, Will is packing lunchboxes with Emma (like they always do, aww!) and Will says he’s so happy to be principal now. However, he is scared. Emma says it’ll be fine and she’ll have his back and he needn’t worry. She leaves for work and Will sits down with adorable baby Danny and says that dreams do come true.

In the choir room, Will rushes in to see it full of people: old ND, present ND and people who want to be future ND. He informs them all that he’s decided to have four show choirs at the school: normal ND, a girls group (The TroubleTones), a boys group (called Duly Noted) and also a juniors group for people who want a bit more practice before they join the big leagues. Will then proceeds to take out his ukulele and sing a really sweet song, ‘Teach Your Children’. During it we see Mercedes, Klaine, Rachel, Tina, Artie and Sam and they all cry quietly (especially Rachel).

In the locker room, Sam is pumping footballs so they can be sold (they won’t be needed at an arts school). In comes Blaine, who offers Sam a room in New York, should he choose to return. But Sam likes the quieter Lima life. Blaine says he misses his best friend, and Sam says he does too, but he’s got a new job now. That new job, as we find out, is coaching ND. Will says he’s best for the job and Sam’s first lesson is on Country music (the genre that was barely touched on Glee!).

In the auditorium, Mercedes has called Rachel, Tina, Artie, Klaine and Sam in. She tells him sadly that she got picked to open for Beyoncé on her new world tour (OMG that’s fantastic!) and afterwards she’s doing an album. So she says she’ll be away and busy for a while, but she loves them and couldn’t do it without their support over all the years. She then sings ‘Someday We’ll Be Together’ and hugs them all. After the song, she just leaves. I mean, I’m so happy for Mercedes, but why did she have to go in such a somber way? She made it seem like she won’t be in contact with any of them at all? Yeah, I cried here. And yeah, I’m crying as I type now.

In what is now Will’s office, Sue is poking around when Klaine come in. They sit Sue down and honestly thank her for getting them back together. In a rare nice Sue moment, she says that getting to know Kurt has been a pleasure and she thanks him. Then Sue says she has to do something and sends Klaine out. We Sue go in the hall and spot Becky down it. They run to each other, hug and apologize for all the random drama in ‘The Rise And Fall Of Sue Sylvester’. I’m so glad Sue and Becky ended on good terms. Lastly, Sue has one more person to see. On the stage, Will finds Sue. They don’t even speak. They sing. They sing ABBA’s ‘The Winner Takes It All’ which is a great song for the moment. They don’t even talk at the end, Sue just leaves. Time jump to five years later. Sue is back on Geraldo Rivera’s show. Only now she’s the Vice President of USA (with her record? How?). She seems happy and tells Rivera that she plans to run for present in 2020.

In the hallways of McKinley, Kurt opens a locker, his old one, to show Blaine a time capsule he’s made in there from his high school days. He has pictures and costume bits and more. It’s lovely. Blaine thinks so too as he starts to cry and laugh at the same time. He declares his love for Kurt again and they kiss/hug ❤

Time jump five years for them too, where they’re in New York on their way to a fancy art elementary school as special celebrity guests. Yes, they’ve somehow made names for themselves. The class’ teacher says they recently did a LGBTQ version of ‘Who’s Afraid Of Virginia Woolf’(I don’t know what that is, but okay). They go in and tell the kids that it’s okay to be who they are and to dream big. That leads to them singing ‘Daydream Believer’ and the kids join in later on. It’s cute and fun! I do wish we saw Klaine doing something else for their time jump though. The school thing was cool and all, but it kind of came out of nowhere….idk…

It’s time for Rachel’s last solo. On stage she sings it, and it is ‘This Time’, a Glee original written by Darren Criss. The song is beautiful and sad and sweet and important and it sums up everyone’s thoughts about Glee, which I love. As Rachel’s last solo, it’s perfect. ❤

Five years later for Rachel goes as follows: Mercedes meets up with Tina and Artie outside in New York. Artie made a movie that Tina stared in and Mercedes gives them permission for her songs to be used in it. Klaine arrive outside too and hurry them all inside, to where Rachel is at a mirror, putting on earring in a snazzy black dress. Before they went inside, however, we see Tina kiss Artie (Tartie endgame! After seeing ‘2009’ and his crush on her, I am more than okay with this!) and also Klaine tell Mercedes that Sam has a new girlfriend (to which she responds “then why does he keep texting me?” Unfortunately, that is as far as it goes for Samecedes all episode. We learn nothing new after that so Imma pretend that those texts led to marriage and happiness.) Anyways, inside, Kurt tells Rachel it’s time (for what?) and helps her stand up because Rachel is largely pregnant! And we find out a second later that the baby will be Klaine’s, as Rachel is their surrogate! KURT AND BLAINE ARE GOING TO HAVE A CHILD! Rachel tells Tina that she agreed to have their baby as a thank you for all their support over the years. Bonus because she was born to two dads via surrogacy so she knows how important it is.

In comes Jesse St James, who Rachel greets as HER HUSBAND(!) and Jesse says that after the baby is born, he wants one of his own! Jesse and Rachel then leave. Where are they going? Oh, just THE TONYS, where Rachel is nominated for an award! We see them arrive there and take their seats as Jesse tells Rachel what to say when she inevitably wins. (BTW, Jesse directed the show!) Back in Lima, Will watches the awards on TV as Sam plays with two children (and Emma holds a child….how many baby Schuesters are there now?). Real life Broadway star Andrew Ranells goes on stage to announce the nominees for Rachel’s category of Best Actress In A Musical. Klaine, Tartie, Mercedes and a few others (including Kitty and Roderick, but not together) watch on TV too and cheer when Rachel is announced for a show called Jane Austin Sings. And the winner is, of course, Rachel Berry, who is stunned. Cue another burst of tears from me at this point because she did it. Rachel did it. She got a Tony. She got what she said she wanted this whole show. She did it! Rachel goes on stage and thanks Jesse and her dads and Carmen Tibideaux and her high school friends. Then she dedicates the award to Mr. Shue for his constant support from the start and closes by saying that dreams do come true. I thought she would have mentioned Finn somehow, but no. As far as St. Berry endgame goes, I’m okay with it. Rachel seemed super happy here and Jesse ended up being a great guy. Obviously, Finn is the real endgame and I’ll always know that, but considering what Glee had to work with, this was perfect. I just wish we had some St. Berry build up all S6, not just in that one episode…

The last scene (ever…) takes place in the auditorium still five years in the future, year 2020. Sue goes on stage but the only people in the audience is the ‘elders’, so Burt, Carole, Will, Beiste, Emma, Figgins and Terri. Sue says that for years and years, Glee has been a place where kids can be happy and sing and think they’re going to be special. And while Sue knew that in the real world, that was all silly and illogical, she understood that the hopes and dreams and beliefs should still have a place to thrive. So she renames the auditorium the Finn Hudson Auditorium. Sue then thanks Will for his hard work in Glee club and a successful McKinley Arts school. Sue closes by welcoming the New Directions to the stage. Will joins them all as they sing ‘I Lived’. And by “them all” I literally mean it. Everyone came back. Santana to Puck to Joe to Ryder to Lauren to Matt Rutherford to Jake to Myron to Jane. Everyone. Well, there were two missing people, but their absences weren’t really noticed too largely. Marley and Rory (and Sebastian but he was never in ND and IDK if Grant was even invited back) all had large roles but were not present, all due to schedules on the actors’ part. Unfortunate, but understandable.

‘I Lived’ was fun and upbeat and so, so, so sweet. I mean, I cried, but I had reason too! Pretty much everyone I loved was on that one stage being happy together. 😀 The show ends as we see Finn’s, Lillian Adler’s, and a new plaque commemorating the Glee club and auditorium up on a backstage wall as we hear the cast laugh and chatter in the background.

The new plaque says “See the world not as it is, but as it should be”

Yeah. Glee is over. Forever. That was the final episode, which I loved. I loved seeing all the time jumps and seeing all the happy endings. I loved the music and having everyone back for one last song. I loved the tribute to Finn. I loved it, plain and simple. I could go on for ages about it and what Glee means to me, but right now I won’t. In terms of this episode, the things I wasn’t 100% thrilled with was Samcedes (I really wanted that…), Klaine’s time jump (we could have had them do so many other things than sing with random kids), and the other originals (what happened with their lives???). I would have really loved and appreciated a two minute bit where everyone’s stories are summed up, like at the end of movies. But, y’know, the episode was still amazing, and I will forever be grateful to Glee for ending the fantastic series in such a way. All my shed tears were deserved as it was beautiful.

I’m sure y’all have thoughts on the episode, or just need a place to cry, so leave a comment and I will cry with you surely.

Here’s the promo for next week…No, I’m just messing with you. There is no next week. It’s a mean joke, I’m sorry.

So I guess you may be wondering what’s happening now, with this blog specifically. I have answers. First off, don’t unfollow or delete the bookmark or close the tab just yet. I do have several posts coming within the next few weeks about Glee and S6 and the cast and more. I’ve already written as much as I could before seeing the finale, but I’ll space out the posting dates. After that, this blog will be ending (not deleted, but just not updated). It’s sad for me to say, but without Glee I have nothing to say here. More info will come on the end and what I plan to do with my free time soon, but for now, keep an eye out for my posts. And also, provided I get a response, I thought it’d be fun to do a little Q&A before I end the blog, so if anyone has any questions about me or Glee or blogging or anything, leave a comment or tweet me. Start the question with Q: so I know it’s for this and not a comment/question you want answered right away. Thanks for reading this and this post and this blog!

That’s all for now.

P.S. If you’ve seen the episode, check out this video from Harry Shum Jr!


Are These Last Songs Of Glee A ‘Dream[s] Come True’?

Guys. Yes. These songs I have here are the last songs from Glee. I mean, there are probably a bunch of songs that were recorded but cut from episodes, but I don’t know if we’ll ever hear them. So for now, these are the last songs. It’s so weird to think about this. Glee will never have new songs. No longer will we be able to hear a song on the radio and wonder if Glee will ever cover it….the answer will be no. I’m dying a little inside. Like, do you know how many times I raced home from school to hear and blog the new songs? Too many. Anyways, here are the songs from the very last episode, 6×13, called ‘Dreams Come True’.  The episode that’ll air right before it, ‘2009’ released its songs early, so I posted them last week, but you can hear them here if you missed it. So now, prepare yourselves and take a listen to the last songs Glee has to offer.

‘Daydream Believer’ (by The Monkees) sung by Kurt and Blaine
YESSS Klaine duet to end it off! Is it the song I would have picked for them? Nah. Do I like it? Yeah. It’s fun and catchy and the whole bit about homecoming queen is great because Kurt was the Prom Queen in S2. However, I think Blaine should have sung that line about being a knight because he was a knight to Kurt. Alsoooooo there’s that bit at the end that sounds like children…..are we going to see Klaine with kids? Because I have a mighty need to see that. 😀 And as a last comment, the first few notes of this song remind me of the first few notes of The Office theme song with the piano. I enjoyed that.

‘Someday We’ll Be Together’ (by Diana Ross And The Supremes) sung by Mercedes
Mercedes solo! Sounding as fabulous as ever. It’s a fun song and I’m glad Mercedes is getting to sing as she was one of the originals, buuuut it’s not my favourite solo of hers. (side note: is she singing to Sam? Because yes please).

‘This Time’ (by Glee) sung by Rachel
This song….okay, first of all, it’s a Glee original, which is always great. And like ‘Rise’ a few episodes back, it is written by the amazingly awesome and mega talented Darren Criss. So by that alone, the song is great (and I’m so proud of Darren omg). But guys…listen to this song. Listen to the lyrics. It’s what I’m feeling. It’s what everyone should be feeling. Lea hyped up this song at Paley and I was like, it’s just a song, but NO it’s the best ever. It’s sweet and powerful and those lyrics, man! It is PERFECT for Rachel, for Glee, for Gleeks. I cried when I heard it. Which was awkward because I was in a huge lecture hall waiting for class to start. If you don’t love this song, you need to re-listen until you do.

‘The Winner Takes It All’ (by ABBA) sung by Will and Sue
An ABBA song was hinted at a while ago and I freaked out because a) I love ABBA and b) ‘Thank You For The Music’ would be the perfect song for Glee, like COME ON. So when I saw this song listed, I was upset for a bit. This song is pretty good though. The six+ year battle between Will and Sue is finally over (maybe?). Either way, Glee would not be Glee without Sue or Will.

‘I Lived’ (by OneRepublic) sung by Everyone
This is a good song for them all to sing. It’s about living life to the fullest and being all you can be, which is what Glee did, y’know? Plus, I’m loving how everyone is singing this. EVERYONE. 😀 I’m so excited to see this song, actually.

‘Teach Your Children’ (by Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young) sung by Will
I think this song is the last song of the episode, so that’ll be sad. This song is also perfect for Will to sing. Glee club would not exist without his constant dedication. This is a really sweet song. It’s not my favourite but it’s so great for this purpose. You can hear Will’s uke in it too, which gives me flashbacks to when he sang ‘Over The Rainbow’ in S1. ❤

So….yeah. Those are the songs. Those are the last Glee songs ever. Wow. For this episode, they’re all so good. My least fave is probably Mercedes’ song, and my favourite is definitely Rachel’s solo. The lyrics are just sooooo good. But they’re all great. I mean, I don’t think I’ll ever get over the fact that they’re doing an ABBA song that isn’t ‘Thank You For The Music’ but whatev. What are your favourite songs from the episode? And on a scale from 1 to 10, how much did you cry when listening to them? 😀

6×08 A Wedding

No, I am not freaking out because I just saw my OTP of all OTPs get married. No, I’m super calm right now. Pshhhh. Okay, not really. Glee’s most recent episode 6×08 ‘A Wedding’ just ended and I am literally shaking with happiness. I’m still trying to process what just happened. I mean, I knew it was coming, but still. Anyhoooooo, okay. The episode. I may sound biased, but it was a good episode. The songs were all good and some characters that we haven’t seen in a while were back and there were a lot of really sweet happy moments. I give it a 4 out of 5. But it probably is bias and I’ll admit it. Whatever. Here is what happened and you can judge for yourself!

It starts with Brittany, Santana, Artie and the girls’ moms in an old barn. Brittany’s mom says it’s the place were Brittany was born (she describes the….cool…story). Artie, the wedding planner says it could work, but Santana, who is just so thrilled to be getting married and to have the moms on board, says the barn will do just fine. So we see everyone (ND and friends) help decorate. Brittany is nervous, seeing it all being set up. She talks to Kurt, who says that nerves are fine. He volunteers his dad to officiate, and that calms her down a bit.

It’s dress shopping time! Rachel, Mercedes and Tina are there to help Brittany and Santana pick a gown. It’s fun and happy and we see some nice and not-so-nice dresses. As someone who used to watch a lot of Say Yes To The Dress, I enjoyed the montage of dresses. In the end, Brittany finds a really nice dress that she loves, but when Santana comes out and looks at it, Brittany’s nerves about seeing the bride in the dress start up.

Later, in the choir room, the girls are arranging seating. Rachel is worried about Carole being at the wedding and seeing her with Sam. It’s a legitimate worry, but the girls assure her it’ll be okay. Santana then notices a seat with Sue’s name on it and completely refuses to have Sue at the wedding. Rachel points out that she’ll try and crash anyways, so they might as well, but Santana refuses to budge on her stance.

It’s the end for Kurt and old man Walter. While at the Lima Bean, Kurt says that he’s going to the wedding with Blaine. Walter says he’s not mad and says that Kurt is still young and should go have fun while he can. And that’s the end because then we see Kurt literally running down a street to Blaine’s place. He tells Blaine that he still loves him and asks him to the wedding, unless he’s going with anyone else. Blaine assures him that there’s no one else and they kiss. ❤ Klaine is back!!!!!!

Tina is in the wedding mood too. She tells the old ND guys that she still loves Mike and wants to marry him. She’s going to propose. Several of them, Artie especially, aren’t completely on board, but they say they’ll support her (crazy) ideas no matter what.

Sue calls Santana into her office and expresses her disappointment at not getting a wedding invite. But in typical Santana fashion, she says that Sue is a selfish mean person who has no place at her wedding. She even has hired security to keep her out. I mean, as much as I agree with Santana, I am kind of surprised. Santana and Sue were never really direct enemies.

It’s wedding time!!!! We see everyone outside in snazzy outfits waiting to go inside. Everyone is smiling and having fun. We see Blaine’s mom, played by Gina Gershon, introduce herself to Carole. And Sugar is back!!!! I’m so glad she came to the wedding! Later, inside the barn, Kurt and Blaine, in spiffy white tuxes, talk with Burt and Carole. They make some awkward small talk about weddings and how they were so close to having one of their own. But Burt, whose words are always a gift to mankind, say that everyone has made mistakes, but since he has been faced with so many deaths and sad moments, he’s learned to make the most of what he’s got and take chances.

Despite Brittany being against it, Santana goes to see Brittany again. When Brittany starts to panic about bad luck again, Santana says that the superstition came from arranged marriages and the idea that if the couple saw each other they’d ditch. But Santana says that she won’t ditch because she loves Brittany too much. They kiss, and just then Sue comes in. Santana is about ready to physically get Sue off the property when Sue says that she has a gift. In comes Santana’s Abuela. We see a quick flashback of Sue at Abuela’s door suggesting that they stone Santana or boycott the wedding, and it’s all Sue’s plan to get Abuela to realize how silly her hate is. And it works. Because Abuela tells Santana that though she doesn’t fully agree on gay relationships, she does fully support family. So Santana hugs her and says that she’s been missed. 🙂

I’m so so so glad that Santana’s Abuela is at the wedding. It’s such a big moment and she’s so important to Santana. It just really makes it perfect for her.

It’s not quite time for the ceremony yet. Klaine are holding hands and waiting when Sue approaches with an emergency. She takes them to a room where Brittany is standing with two black tuxes. Brittany explains that she loves them both and their relationship is important to her, so she wants them to get married as well. Santana appears and says she’s on board. Kurt starts stuttering about how crazy it is and how they just got back together, but when asked, Blaine says that what Burt said about making the most of things was important. We cut to a commercial before we get a definite answer, but you can just see the love in Blaine’s eyes. You know he wants to do it. Part of me wants them not to. I mean, they JUST got back together and they still have issues to work out. But my fangirl heart was all for a wedding. It needs to happen!

On stage, Mercedes and Artie sing ‘At Last’ while Brittany and Kurt walk down the isle, followed by Santana and Blaine.

As the guests notice this, they all look surprised but happy. I guess that if you had no idea that Klaine would be getting hitched too, you’d be making the same faces. Anyways, Burt the officiant does his little spiel about how the couples are so brave for showing the world what their love is and getting married. The two couples exchange vows about how life is perfect with each other and they all exchange rings, and then, on Burt’s word, they kiss. ❤ MY BABIES ARE MARRIED. ❤ I’m just so happy. I mean, Brittana are cute and I’m so happy for them too, but KLAAAAAINE. Oh man. Okay. I’m cool.

Brittany’s dad is the only one to give a speech, and it is….a mess. I’m kind of upset that no one else gave a speech. One from Rachel would have been nice. Or Burt, maybe. But okay. After the train wreck of a speech, Santana gets up and says that she found her OTP as did Kurt/Blaine, so she gives everyone a baseball cap with OTP embroidered on the front. Then she invites everyone to dance. Artie and the gang get on the floor and he sings ‘Hey Ya’ and it’s really fun!

In a back room, Tina is fixing her hair when Mike comes in. Tina sits him down and says that though they’ve been apart, she still loves him. She gets down on one knee and proposes. I half expected Mike to say yes, honestly. But Mike is smart and says that he can’t accept. He admits that he loves her too, but they aren’t ready. Tina doesn’t really want to hear anything he says about her being great and all, but they end up kissing and going to dance.

The next song is sung by the Moms of the newlyweds along with Mercedes, Brittana and Sugar (The TroubleTones!). They sing ‘I’m So Excited’ and it’s so great. I loved seeing the moms perform, and there was one bit when Sugar just went crazy with the dance moves and it was then that I realized how much I’ve missed her.

To thank all the guests for coming to the wedding, the new married couples sing ‘Our Time Has Come’ and invite all the couples to dance. So Mike and Tina dance. Sam and Rachel get up, but then Rachel catches Carole and Burt’s eye. Carole smiles and nods at them, so Samchel proceed to dance. I mean, I’m glad Carole is happy with it, and why wouldn’t she be? She knows just as well that people need to move on after a death, and she knows that Sam is a good guy. The song is nothing special, but it was sweet.

The wedding is officially over. In the choir room, Tina meets with Artie, who’s got a picnic lunch set up for the two of them. As they eat, Tina complains about how Mike rejected her. Artie says that Tina is fun and awesome and won’t be alone forever. To prove it, they agree that if they’re not married by age 30, they’ll marry each other. It’s such a cliché promise, but dang it, it’s cute.

They’re cute. I was pretty indifferent when Tartie dated in S1. I liked Tina with Mike and I loved Artie with Kitty, but Tina and Artie together are cute too. If they’re endgame, I think I’ll be happy. So while the Mike bits in this episode were a bit awkward, I’m glad that we’re building up to some closure for the other characters too.

In the auditorium, Sue calls the new married couples in and she gives them both another gift: honeymoons. While it’s clear that she’s just doing it to prove that she’s not as selfish as Santana called her out to be, it is a nice gesture. As they couples walk out, they discuss how they have the same anniversary now and that they’ll celebrate together every five years but Skype every year. And that is the end.

You see, it was an all-around happy episode. I’m so so so glad that Klaine are married now. And same with Brittana. Fans have been waiting for both for years, so I’m glad we finally got it before the end. I do wish we got some more things in that episode. As perfect as I found it to be, there were still some things missing. Like Quinn. She’s so important to Santana and Brittany, so I wish she was at the wedding. Or Cooper for Klaine. I mean, having Mike and Puck and Sugar there was great, but Quinn is a bit more important than them in my opinion. I also wish we had Klaine singing ‘Come What May’ like they had planned. I would have also liked to see the couples have a first dance. Maybe that was filmed but cut, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed for access to those scenes somehow. And of course, seeing Klaine getting married makes me forever wish we had the possibility of a Finchel wedding. But considering the old last Glee scene, I don’t know if we would have gotten one anyways. Anyways, the episode was good and I loved it, so I am satisfied. *thumbs up*

Next week is episode 6×09 and it is called ‘Child Star’. I do not know why. Here is the promo:
I guess my first question is why is ND dancing in front of the word MYRON? Who or what is Myron? Or why Rachel and Sam are dancing there too. Looks like some old Sue/Will drama. It’s not Glee without that, now is it? And ohh, Newbie drama? As predictable as it seems, it is important to a functioning group, I suppose. That dude who walks in on Sue tackling Will is the superintendent, by the way. The promo doesn’t look too exciting to me, but we’ll see how the episode is next week. 😀

That’s all for now. I’ll be here crying happy tears about Klaine, so leave a comment if you want to fangirl with me about anything from the episode. Bye now!
