It has been the moment Gleeks have been waiting for ever since Rachel Berry strutted out into the audience season 1 during Sectionals and belted out her now signature song, Don’t Rain On My Parade. Rachel Berry taking on the role of Fanny Brice has always been end game, but it's satisfying to finally be at this place.
In truth, since the original cast's graduation, it’s been a rollercoaster ride watching Glee; the momentum with stories and plots have been ferociously up and down. But while this episode had more than one plothole glaring viewers in the face (WHERE’S BRITTANY???), it was the first episode since perhaps season 3 that felt perfectly like a season 1 episode. It made you cry, it made you laugh and it made you cheer – you may have even gorged on the last of you Easter candy to get through all your feelings and then stood up in your living room to give a standing ovation to the entire episode!
Oh, that was just us? That’s cool… we’re owning it.
But let’s go ahead and talk more about what actually happened in this episode, shall we?!
