If this was fan fic, Finn would leave to go get Rachel and
then Sam and Puck would have sex. Am I right? Although I’m not sure what Mike
would do. I don’t actually read Sam/Puck (Suck? Pam?) fan fic so I have no idea
what people do with Mike in situations like this.
The girls are having a pillow fight in their room – well,
except Rachel, who’s trying to write a song. I noted that Santana and Brittany
are only pillowing each other. With as little Brittana as there is in this
episode, I take what I can get.
Finn texts Rachel and tells her to dress up and meet him at
the bridge in Central Park.
This scene is just the most fabulous Technicolor romantic
movie – not a modern rom com, but doing it old school – a real romance. Turns
out Finn’s pulling out all the stops, and I’ve never liked him more except when
he put on the red shower curtain and saved Kurt from getting beat up.
They go to Sardi’s, where Rachel spots Miss Patti Lupone. She has a fangirl moment (on behalf of herself
and of Kurt, too). Miss Lupone tells her
to never give up on her dreams, and oh yeah – that Finn’s cute. She
wishes them both luck, and gracefully leaves the restaurant.
Walking down the quiet, rain-wet, lantern-lit street with
Finn after dinner, Rachel sighs that it was a perfect night, like something
from a romantic movie. “All we need now is a group of street singers to
Puck, Sam, Mike and Artie are suddenly there, with Puck
playing an accordion, singing “Bella Notte” from Lady and the Tramp. But Rachel and Finn don’t see them, so I’m
guessing they’re not really there, if anything is “really” anything
on Glee tonight.
Finn says that if this was a romantic movie this is the part
where he’d kiss her, but Rachel freaks out and runs off before he can.
