Top 25 Season Two Finchel Moments
#3 // The breakup // Special Education
You’re all going to think I’m crazy for putting this on here at all, let alone this high on my list, but hear me out.
Are we a part of something special? You and me?
I bitch a lot about the lack of continuity on this show. This one scene had more continuity than the entire season did connecting to last season. I loved the throwback to Pilot and I love how they reinforced the metaphor of Finchel to the glee club. Being a part of something special makes you special. Rachel counted on the glee club making her special, but where she found she was the most special was in her relationship with Finn.
I love you.
Three little words. So much emotion and inflection. It’s never sounded more raw or emotional. It’s never sounded so honest. And then they clung to each other. They breathed each other in. They poured a week’s worth of fighting and angst into one embrace. They love each other *so* much. It’s almost ridiculous sometimes. But it’s the one thing on the show I’ve never doubted.
No more lying. Ever.
And that’s where I usually end the episode because the rest is just so sad. But that’s, perhaps, the beauty in it. This is, by far, Lea and Cory’s best scene together. I’ve never seen them connect so well…so emotionally and honestly…and I think the trouble I have watching the remainder of this scene is that I feel it too much.
You said you’d never break up with me.
The best part of all of this now, though, is to ever break them up again…it’s going to be tough. She’ll never cheat on him again. He’ll never lie to her again. Of that, I’m sure. If they can come back from this (and we know they will), it’s going to be awfully hard to ever split them up again. And the continuity. God bless the continuity.
This scene. It’s so raw and emotional. But the reason I love it so much, even when it breaks my heart, is because there is no doubt they love each other. They love each other *so* much more than they’ve loved anyone or anything else. And for me? That’s something that’ll always be beautiful to watch. Even when it breaks my heart.
