It's the moment Gleeks have been waiting for ever since Rachel Berry strutted out during Sectionals and belted out her now signature song, Don’t Rain On My Parade in the first season. Rachel Berry taking on the role of Fanny Brice has always been end game, but oh, how satisfying to finally be at this place!
In truth, since the original cast's graduation, it’s been a roller coaster 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 three that felt perfectly like a season one 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 one miss Rachel Berry!
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?!
