What an experience!
We cried so much last night, and for so many different reasons!
Glee began their Season 5 with Love, Love, Love — an appropriate and much-needed route following the tragic death of show star Cory Monteith.
And while we won't see his tribute episode until Episode 3, the writers were able to give a tasteful nod to our beloved Finn last night. But let's start on a happy note, so we can endure the second wave of tears with a lil' more strength, shall we?
Up top we have one of the best, most romantic proposals in TV history. Blaine (Darren Criss) set up a surprise proposal performance for Kurt (Chris Colfer) with All You Need Is Love. And while the show was something Baz Luhrmann would approve of, the actual proposal was just so beyond anything we've ever seen before. Engagement 101 in this episode!!
Okay, now on to the waterworks… in the beginning of the episode, Rachel (Lea Michele) sang Yesterday as she wandered through New York City. But she wasn't just strolling aimlessly. On the surface it might seem as if she's simply missing her friends, but longtime fans will know she's re-visiting spots she and Finn saw on their first trip to the Big Apple.
So like we said, tears of happiness and mega tears of sadness. If you've got an industrial size box of Kleenex, check 'em out (above) before we get into the rest of the performances …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
