nicely done
31 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

I loved the Charlie theme. Funerals are somber moments, but jean's funeral was done right, as a remembrance. That is the way it should be, less upsetting. It would be nice if funerals were done like this now. Leave it to Kurt to help with the personal belongings and lend a sympathetic ear. i am surprised that it was only Kurt and Finn. 2 of the people she hates.i thought we were done with triangles. I love you Quinn, but now it is I love Rachel and trying to fix everything with her. Why go with Quinn in the first place if he still loved Rachel? No matter how hard Rachel tried to get into his good graces, he did not forgive her, but the moment she stopped, he loves her. As much as people have fights with boyfriends and girlfriends, it is better to stay single when trying to sort out a relationship.
