Speaking of which…though I would have liked at least one small moment where Rachel reminded Finn that he’d dumped her for a tiny indiscretion that she’d actually fessed up to, rather than just get all moony over him, I actually bought what Lea Michelle and Cory Monteith were selling. It is high school romance after all. This stuff happens. Plus, when Patty Lupone tells you a boy is cute, you sort of lose all logical thought, especially if you’re Rachel Berry.
I’m not sure what was going on with that whole scene actually, from Central Park to Sardi’s to being serenaded by their classmates whom they apparently couldn’t see? It was way over the top, but it all comes back to the whole “suspension of disbelief” thing Casey talked about, and if you just sit back and enjoy, it’s probably better that way.
