This was a good episode because it shows there is still that spark between Finn and Rachel, no matter what he says.trying to avoid it by dating Quinn, but yet when Rachel shows up with someone else, he gets in protective mode. He was always protective of her and Rachel being Rachel is what he loved since the beginning. Rachel does not have anyone for prom, so it is OK for her to go with someone else.i think Finn was bombarded by Quinn to date for prom king and queen. What girl doesn't dream of a tiara on her head? A status symbol because she didn't want to be alone and the only available one at that moment was Finn. She certainly doesn't want puck again. Finn should have learned to stay away after her lying to him about the pregnancy. Quinn lives up to her reputation. I thought it was funny at the end when they do announce the king and queen, never suspected and an unlikely pair. It would be nice to know why unless a conversation was heard in the hallway and someone knows something. Everyone gets shocked, but anyone can run. It is not like there is only the popular people who can run, that is why they have write ins. It gives everyone a chance, no matter how insignificant the person is. I am wondering who the person may be, but it was never said.
