One Couple Says ‘Goodbye’ in ‘Glee’ Finale


With Kurt (Chris Colfer), Santana (Naya Rivera), Finn (Cory Monteith), Rachel (Lea Michele), Quinn (Diana Agron), Puck (Mark Salling) and Mercedes (Amber Riley) all graduating in the latest episode of ‘Glee,’ there were enough goodbyes to go around. However, that did not stop one couple from parting ways by the end of the finale.

The breakup that you might not have seen coming: Rachel and Finn, who were bound for the altar throughout the season. With various parental figures and friends of the couple — not to mention fans — disagreeing with the promotion of a teenage wedding, Finn and Rachel wisely parted ways at Finn’s urgings, who chose to join the army for motivations that revolve around his deceased military father.

In the ‘Goodbye,’ Rachel gets into NYADA, but Finn and Kurt are both rejected. Instead of continuing on to New York alone, Rachel decides to defer for the year and spend the time helping her friends achieve their own dreams before focusing on hers. Finn ruins her plans when instead of driving them to get married, a teary eyed Finn brings her to a train bound for New York so she can start school in the fall.

Not necessarily the most satisfying ending for those rooting for a Finn and Rachel union, but one with a smart message for fans and teens alike. Their parting was full of plenty of crying and bargaining, but in the end they both agreed the need to find their own paths apart before coming together when the time is right. Bravo.
