Last night’s episode of Glee was the big New York finale. For McKinley High, Nationals was the chance to prove to everyone and to themselves that they were that good. To be honest, going into the finale, I thought New Directions would win (or place very high). But it was about so much more than that. For Rachel, New York was about choosing her dream over love. For Schue, it was about finding himself and choosing between his dream and the Glee kids he adores so much. For Santana and Brittany, it was about friendship. For Quinn, it was about accepting herself for who she is. And for Finn, it was all about love. As Brittany so aptly explained in this episode, Glee is about family and not about winning. A twelfth place trophy might not be first place but for the Glee kids, their dreams still came true.
