Glee-Cap: Goodbye
by Robert Lawlor - May 22, 2012

This is it, Gleeks - the moment that four years of high school leads to - graduation. For some - it's the beginning of a whole new adventure, for some it's the end of old dreams and the beginning of new ones, and for some - it's time to really Face the Music and the future. Gleeks, I give you the graduates of William McKinley High - class of 2012. Mr. Schue walks into the choir room to find the original members - Kurt, Artie, Rachel, Tina, and Mercedes revisiting their first number together - "Sit Down You're Rockin The Boat" from Guys and Dolls for their fellow glee clubbers. Mr. Schue begins the assignment of "goodbye" with a version of "Forever Young" setting the stage for the goodbyes that lay ahead. Burt surprises Kurt with a graduation present - his own performance of the infamous "Single Ladies" dance that brought them to the road of acceptance. Blaine and Kurt begin talking about the issue of long distance relationships, but Kurt assures Blaine that he'll never say goodbye to him and they will make things work. Kurt presents his goodbye via "I'll Remember" by Madonna making sure to dedicate to the men in the room who taught him no matter what - gay or straight - they're friends. (more...)
