I love Glee, even though we have had our ups and downs. I was excited when Broadway star Idina Menzel joined the cast and called the whole Rachel Mama Drama storyline before it happened. And when Shelby told Rachel that she felt their time had passed and she felt as if she couldn't be the mother she needed, I slightly understood. Slightly.
But last night when Shelby and Rachel had their final conversation, I realized what was about to happen. In the most clever labor scenes I have ever seen, Quinn gave birth to baby Beth to the tune of Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. And as Quinn and Puck stood outside the nursery and realized they weren't keeping the baby, Shelby made her entrance and ending up adopting the baby.
The problem with this is that Glee pretty much had Shelby trade in her newly found daughter that she had supposedly been broken up for years about finding only to realize she wanted a newer model. As Rachel put everything out on the table for her birth mother, your heart just broke as Shelby shot her down and told her that Rachel was too old for Shelby to suddenly become a mother to.
Heartbreaking and just mean I think. And how weird is it if Finn and Rachel marry then he becomes the brother-in-law to the girl that he once thought was his.
Jonathon Groff killing it on Bohemian Rhapsody and Matthew Morrison sending us off for the summer with his romantic rendition of Somewhere Over The Rainbow. I cannot wait for next season with the promise of Brittany and Santana overload!
Also, Glee got the honor of gracing the cover of Emmy Magazine and here are the breathtaking photos.
