Hello, Gleeks. We are down to the last episodes of Glee
...ever. After tonight's episode, "The Rise and Fall of Sue Sylvester," there are only three episodes left, but remember, the last two episodes air on the same night. Since we only have three more weeks of the "glee-cap," let's make it a good one! What happened on tonight's episode? It was... interesting.
Blaine, Kurt and Will
Back from their honeymoon, Blaine tells Will that Dalton Academy has burned to the ground. Will calls an emergency meeting with Dalton and the New Directions. They decide to combine the clubs to form a super group. During the celebration, Sue walks in and tells the Warblers to leave. However, Will has cleared it with the superintendent, so they stay. Sue is not happy.
Sue and Becky
Becky is very upset that Sue won't let the Warblers join the New Directions. Becky claims that she has performed innumerable acts of loyalty for her, and that Sue is no longer her friend. Becky runs out and Sue remains alone.
Rachel is in New York at NYADA to ask for a second chance. She meets with Carmen Tibideaux and when she comes back to McKinley, she tells everyone that Carmen was moved by what she had to say. Rachel is writing a letter to her, but Sam, Mercedes and Blaine tell her not to get her hopes up. In the meantime, she gets a call about the audition Mercedes put her onto a couple of weeks ago, and she got it!
Sue and Will
Sue and Will both meet with the superintendent and he tells her that he has seen Sue's hurt locker. He finds many horrifying things. He has decided to fire Sue.
Sue ends up appearing on Fox News with Geraldo Rivera to set the record straight. Geraldo calls her out on all of her lies, including the fact that Michael Bolton is the father of her daughter. She blames Will for tipping off the network, but Geraldo tells her it was Becky.
Sue tells Geraldo, all she wanted was to see her Cheerios succeed, then she turns on him when she finds out they are still on air. Geraldo tells her that they have a special guest who wants to alter their voice, but wants to stand up for her. It is Coach Beiste. Sue's mom also appears on the show, and her mom tells Geraldo that Sue was the "daughter that she just couldn't love." Sue punches Geraldo and walks out. Will, who appears on television after Sue leaves, says he believes she deserves a second chance.
Later, at McKinley, Sue's mom has come to meet her. Sue accuses her of lying, but her mom apologizes for all she has done in Sue's life.
Will, New Directions and the Warblers
It's no surprise to anyone that the New Directions and the Warblers are having a difficult time coming together. One issue is that the Warblers feel like everyone should wear uniforms, but the New Directions do not. During this discussion, Coach Beiste comes in and tells them that Sue is the new coach of Vocal Adrenaline.
Rachel decides that maybe they should try to wear the Warbler blazers and she asks Sam to help. As they are trying on the blazers, Sam tells her that he thinks she should take the opportunity to go back to NYADA if given the chance. Meanwhile, Rachel's phone rings and it's Carmen Tibideaux. Sam is excited, but Rachel says she is not going back. Same is angry, however, that Rachel isn't going to get a college education.
Sue and Vocal Adrenaline
Sue introduces herself to Vocal Adrenaline and puts them through the paces to see if they have what it takes. She also burns all of the contents in her hurt locker.
Later, Sue and Will get into another argument and have a sing-off. Will tells Blaine not to worry about it, because they are going to beat Sue at sectionals. Rachel and Kurt enter the room, and they say Myron told them if the New Directions don't win, all arts and music programs will be wiped from the school.
As the episode ends, we see that the Warblers and New Directions have decided on a uniform choice and they perform an original song.
What did you think about this episode, Gleeks? Was it final-season-worthy?
"Rather Be" - by Clean Bandit feat. Jess Glynne - Sung by New Directions - Uninspiring...best I can say.
"The Trolley Song" - by Cast of Meet Me in St. Louis -
Sung by Sue and her mom - Better than the other song.
"Far From Over" - by Frank Stallone - Sung by Vocal Adrenaline - I like these group numbers, and Vocal Adrenaline always puts on a good show.
"The Final Countdown" - by Europe - Sung by Will and Sue - Best two minutes of the entire episode...and possibly the season.
"Rise" - Original Glee
song - Sung by New Directions, written by Darren Criss - Totally reminds me of "Loser Like Me"
