Recap and Review of Glee Midseason Finale Episode "Sectionals"

Glee-ful Highlights From Episode "Sectionals"

OMG, you guys — the Glee midseason finale is definitely an episode to remember. The club heads to sectionals without one Mr. Schue, but not before the truth comes out about Quinn and Finn! Meanwhile, Emma is getting ready to marry Ken, and Terri is desperately trying to make amends with Will.

I can barely keep the spoilers to myself, so to get into all the juicy details just read more.

  • OK, let's start at the end. Mr. Schue and Emma finally kiss! At first I was happy that Emma holds her own when Mr. Schue reaches for her after she's been stood up by Ken, but there was no way she would deny him twice in a row. The scene where Will is running down the hall is delightfully cheesy, and their moment is the perfect way to end the episode. But what will happen next? Is Emma really done with McKinley for good? Is Terri out of the picture?
  • It turns out that Mercedes couldn't keep Puck's baby daddy secret to herself and the word spreads like wildfire — right back to Rachel (with the help of her "sixth sense"). Rachel can't help herself and spills the beans to Finn in hopes that Finn will finally want to be with her. But Rachel is hardly on his mind, and Finn wastes no time beating the crap out of Puck. I was impressed with Cory Monteith's acting during the scene where he walks out on the club, and I am so glad that all the drama is out in the open now. But will Puck and Quinn make it as a couple? And will she really keep the baby now that Terri isn't faking a pregnancy anymore?
  • The gang heads to sectionals, only to find that Sue did, in fact, leak their songs to the other schools. It has to be said: couldn't they just perform one of the 10 other songs that had at one time or another been set for sectionals? What happened to "Defying Gravity" or "True Colors" or all those mashups? Either way, Rachel is brilliant with her last-minute rendition of "Don't Rain on My Parade," and "You Can't Always Get What You Want" is solid too, though not my all-time favorite.
  • As for Sue? She finally gets what's coming to her when Principal Figgins suspends her from school and fires her as coach of the Cheerios. Of course, this prompts Sue to threaten Will with "Destination: Horror" (but not until she gets a little bronzed in Boca). The club still has regionals to worry about, and it sounds like Sue will "C" to it that there will be plenty of bumps along the way.

So, how'd you like the finale? Did you cheer for Will and Emma? Do you think the gleeks deserved the title (how hilarious are the sectionals judges, by the way)? Finally, can you handle the wait until April? Sound off below and don't forget to check out the Glee Club group in the Buzz Community!
