Rachel had her Funny Girl callback while the glee club faced a few obstacles before getting to regionals.
Brittany’s SAT score was so unbelievable that MIT had to see for themselves if she was the real deal, and even though she scored a zero on their “simple” math test, her crayon doodling somehow showed she was the greatest mind since Albert Einstein (don’t ask me, I was never good at math). They want her to join the school right away and the shock leads to a classic Brittany meltdown, leaving the glee club wondering if she’ll even show up to regionals.
Rachel had her callback for Fanny Bryce and what better way to end the season and show them her chops than a Celine Dion ballad. Her rendition of To Love You More was UNBELIEVABLE. Seriously, though, any time there is a Rachel Berry ballad in the first five minutes you know you’re in for something good.
Nev Schulman was the only thing missing from this episode because the end of Katie was definitely worthy of an MTV special. Ryder went crazy from all the secrecy surrounding his online lover and threatened to forego regionals unless the catfish fessed up. Marley took the blame, but it turned out she was just covering for Unique, who wanted to make a real connection without her identity getting in the way. What she did was wrong, but would Ryder have opened up had he known? My guess is probably not.
Going to the Chapel…Maybe

It was only the season finale, but last night’s Glee felt more like the end of an era, which inevitably brought on the waterworks. All the senior members of glee graduated and gabbed about their future plans by the lockers.
Quinn, and Mike are heading to college, Mercedes is moving to California where she’ll be a background singer and Santana will pursue her dreams in NYC. We’re not sure what Puck and Kurt will do yet. Kurt sadly doesn’t make NYADA and Puck, well, he’s a graduate so that’s something. But what struck a chord for most viewers (trust me I checked Twitter) was the final few minutes of this tearful episode, better known as Rachel and Finn’s surprising breakup.
With all the laughter, tears, twists and turns, here’s what I learned from last night’s episode “Goodbye.”
1) Rachel and Finn are over, or are they really? Rachel receives her acceptance to NYADA (told you!) but Kurt doesn’t get in, and Finn also receives a blunt rejection letter from James Lipton’s Actor’s Studio Drama School. This has got to be one of the biggest upsets, or at least for Kurt! I had a feeling Finn wouldn’t make it — not that he isn’t talented — but it just seems more natural for Ryan Murphy to create some drama for Finn and Rachel. However, breaking up the pair wasn’t what anyone had in mind, or at least I wasn’t on that bandwagon. Read more…
So you maybe wondering – where was David Cook last night on the season finale/goodbye to Simon Cowell on “American Idol.” Everyone else was in attendance for this special episode, so why not David Cook?
Well the story really isn’t that controversial or gossipy, just a pure scheduling conflict. PopEater reports David had a charity event scheduled in Kansas City, preventing him from attending. We figure that’s a legitimate and reasonable excuse, although not very controversial.
However luckily all the “American Idol” veterans were in attendance like Kelly Clarkson, Ruben Studdard, Carrie Underwood, and many more! It was a nice and respectful way to say goodbye to the season and Simon Cowell.
This Week On Entourage:
On the day before he leaves to Italy, Vince tries to get the boys to come with him, but only manages to get Drama. Turtle still trying to get over Jamie, and tries to forget about her with the college dorm girl. And Eric says he’s going to try and get Sloan back -but the guys think it’ll be pretty hard.
Meanwhile, Ari and his wife meet with the therapist to discuss why his wife should lend him $12 million to help buy Terrance’s agency. But after Ari admits why he truly wants to buy it and pours his heart out, she agrees to spot him the money.
Despite Lloyd’s suggestion, Drama decides not to read for any acting gigs, saying he’s taking a break from it for a while. While shopping with Vince, the two run into Matt Damon who tries to pressure Vince into donating a cheque for his children’s charity.
“American Idol” finalist David Cook may be missing one of his biggest supporters at the upcoming season finale: his brother.
As was revealed last month, Cook’s brother Adam has been fighting brain cancer for the last ten years. People magazine reports that though he was well enough to attend one episode, his condition will likely keep him from travelling back to Los Angeles again.
According to the his wife, Adam’s health is “A day-to-day thing. I can’t look at tomorrow. I have to look at today. If I start planning out and thinking about too much in the future, I can get overwhelmed in all the details. I have to concentrate on today.”
Cook will compete tonight against David Archuleta, with the champion being crowned tomorrow night.
So it turns out Toby Flenderson really is going to Costa Rica. Who knew? In the season finale of “The Office”, the crew plans an elaborate farewell party for their beloved (or despised if you’re Michael Scott) Human Resources Representative. Meanwhile, Toby spends the day teaching his replacement the ins and outs (pretty sure the outs outweigh the ins) of Dunder Mifflin Scranton.
Michael kicks off the meeting of the party planning committee by asking, “if the devil were to explode and evil were gone forever, what sort of party would you throw?” He’s thinking beach blowout or toga party. With an anti-gravity machine. The girls aren’t on board. Angela quits, but Phyllis agrees to plan the party on her own with funding from Michael’s secret stash of cash safely stored in his shoe.
Meanwhile, Toby begins showing his replacement, Holly, around the office. Michael and Dwight are quick to despise her, Michael because Toby picked her and Dwight because she “stinks with her ways…and her…head.” Or because he just agrees with everything Michael says. Probably the second option.
The guys decide to mess with her, but Dwight doesn’t get the memo that as soon as Holly speaks 3 words to Michael, he decides he is head-over-heels in love with her. He’s so in love with her in fact that he asks for Jim’s advice in “downloading N3P music for a CD mix tape” for her. Jim advises Michael to take it slow, using his and Pam’s relationship as an example and then decides he’s going to propose to Pam at the party.
Dwight, meanwhile, continues with his “playful hazing” of the new girl. For example, the amazing Mose Schrute makes a cameo when Dwight calls him in from the beet farm to release a raccoon into Holly’s car. Michael does not appreciate this and exclaims that Holly is the best thing to happen to the company since WWII. Mose is traumatized and probably will not return to civilization anytime soon.
Side note: During the day, a YouTube video of Ryan getting arrested surfaces. It turns out he was recording sales on his brainchild of a website and on paper, which Oscar explains “is called fraud.” Although, he personally thinks the real crime was the beard.
Phyllis’s party turns out to be totally awesome and features, among other things, a ferris wheel, fireworks, and Darryl’s band. But unfortunately no anti-gravity machine.
During a hot dog run to the grocery store, Kevin spots Jan and calls Michael to meet him there immediately. It turns out Jan is pregnant. But the baby isn’t Michael’s. She explains that she went to a sperm bank while they were together. She feels bad about this betrayal and offers for Michael to come with her to Lamaze class. He reluctantly agrees, even though he doesn’t actually know what a Lamaze class is.
And what would a Dunder Mifflin party be without Michael Scott approaching the mic? This time he sings a cover of Supertramp’s “Goodbye Stranger” dedicated to Toby. And he gets really into it. Like, really into it. Somehow the new HR girl still kind of likes him, but he’s so thrown from the meeting with Jan that her attempt at asking him out goes right over his head and she ends up going for dessert with Kevin instead.
Finally, Jim psyches himself up to propose to Pam during the fireworks, only to be beaten to the punch by Andy, who gets on the microphone and proposes to Angela. She says “ok” and Dwight looks like he’s going to throw up. More sobbing on Mose’s shoulder tonight for sure. Pam seems kind of upset that Jim didn’t propose and Toby is escorted off the property by a security guard on Michael’s request.
So Toby’s off to Costa Rica, Pam is off to New York’s Pratt School of Design for 3 months (she gets her acceptance via e-mail in this episode), Ryan is off to the big house, and Michael is on his way to becoming “kind of a daddy.” Sounds like a solid take-off point for Season 5.
