to Coach Sue to congratulate her on her double-win national championships with both glee and the Cheerios; then suggests that they team up next year to take down Figgins. I love seeing these two interact, so I’m definitely in favor of the great athletic coach uprising of 2013…we shall see!
In another misty-eyed moment, Quinn comes to Sue’s office to return her Cheerios uniform, steam-cleaned and pressed (she’s a class act, our Quinn Fabray, ain’t she?); but Sue tells her to keep it, and goes on to expound on how proud she is of her, and how she admires her strength and perseverance. It’s pretty sweet. Sue can’t wait to see Quinn spread her wings and fly off into her awesome life; and she’ll be able to say she knew Quinn Fabray way back when she was getting ironic Ryan Seacrest tattoos and lying about the identity of her unborn baby’s father.
Quinn bursts into tears and hugs her, saying how much she’ll miss her; Sue doesn’t see how that’s possible, but thanks her anyway. I have to admit, hearing Sue call her favorite student kiddo and tell her how proud she is and how she’s gonna have such a great life, totally brought me back to Jane Lynch’s commencement speech at Smith last weekend, where she said basically the same thing to the entire Smith College class of 2012. Jane Lynch is the awesomest. I hope we’ll continue to see more of this nicer side of Sue next year!
Moving right along, the whole gang gathers to see if Puck passed his test; and with his C- proudly in hand (hey, a C- is a Puckerman A+), he ushers them all into their graduation ceremony, to the background tune of Glory Days, while only the Glee kids’ names are called, and not even in alphabetical order. But the song is bitchtastic and they all look great in their graduation gowns, so whatever.
After the ceremony, Kurt, Finn and Rachel finally get their letters from NYADA & the Actors Studio (because, sure, the deadlines for this aren’t months passed by now!), and amid super-high-level diva drama from Finn, they open them all together in the choir room. Finn didn’t get in (I mean, duh), and neither did Kurt, which totally threw me
