Gleeks! Last night was THE night where Rachel Berry finally got her chance to prove her worth as Fanny Brice. While fans know that when it comes to a performance there are two different Rachel Berrys: There is the confident, "I will not let anything bother me Rachel Berry;" and then there is the absolute meltdown Rachel Berry.

Gleeks saw both last night. The episode of Glee
started out with a fever dream that not only brought back some familiar faces, such as Karofsky and Jacob Ben Israel, but it also brought back some familiar wardrobe choices from our favorite cast members. In “Lovefool,” performed by the lady of the night, Rachel was having a nightmare were everything was going wrong, and the heckling from the audience included Sue and Becky.
As great as it was to see the characters we fell in love with during the fever dream, the performance of the night can easily go to “Who Are You Now?” Rachel had mentioned earlier that this song reminds her of Finn. During her emotional performance, fans were surprised with a tender Finn flashback that only added to the emotions. What was surprising is, this song turned into a duet between Sue and Rachel. The next shocker of the night is Sue found her a man while in NYC. The tender and emotional performance was perfectly performed by both.
Another tender moment was when Mr. Shue announced his baby was born healthy and happy, and he named his little boy Daniel Finn Schuester. Everyone say awwww all at once now!
Of course all of the performances were not emotional; with the group's performance of “Pumpin Blood” bringing high energy and a feel of the good ol' days. The gang all went to a gay club in Greenwich Village where all of the clientele immediately fawns over Rachel- the second coming of Barbara. Everyone danced the night away, and Rachel even signed someone’s back. She’s officially made it! Of course the episode couldn’t end without everyone finding out the critique from The New York Times
. Of course he gave Funny Girl
a glowing review. After the initial happiness this instantly put Rachel at ease.
What was your favorite performance from last night? Did you catch Rachel give Sue the business, If not you’ve got to see it! Not to mention Santana made her triumphant return to give Rachel the perfect kick in the butt to snap her out of her haze. Whew, what an action packed episode filled with great performances from Funny Girl
and beyond. How do you think Rachel did? Let us know your thoughts!
