Well, I am shocked to say I thought it was great!

Although I think I'm blinded by love because THEY WERE ON THE WICKED SET!!!!!!! :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub: :wub: I could even look past my hatred for Kurt's voice.

Quite surprised at the Nationals result, but it just means they're 100% gonna win next year lol

The only thing I was thinking about the entire time was that Time Square is never that empty.

But other than that, did you like it?

Meh, I thought it was an okay episode; nothing compared to last year's finale.
I guess it was finally nice to see them at Nationals, but the episode felt rather dragged out and boring.

- Good Points -
* Goolsby, learned how to be an enjoyable jerk.
* Rachel made up with Sunshine.
* Finnchel as a whole. I enjoyed it when they were together, but since the break up, all of their scenes together have been so...ugh.
* Hardly any romance drama.
* I Love New York / New York, New York (I always love mash-ups!)
* Pretty much everyone got a fair amount of screen time.
* Rachel and Kurt's promise and duo.
* Jesse being tolerable.
* Mercedes' blank stare face during Vocal Adrenaline's performance. :lol:
* New Directions did not place. They haven't yet earned such a right in my eyes. But as said, this only means they will definitely win come next year.
* The few second glimpse of Will and Emma :wub:

- Bad Points -
(Some of these are directed at the season a whole, and not just this episode specifically)
* The lack of Sue.
* Brittany and Santana's scene at the end of the episode (though it was kind of sweet). If you want to be with Santana, then just be with her, and let Artie down already. He's being such a tool and he knows it!
* The Warblers; didn't they tie with New Directions at Regionals? Shouldn't they have been at Nationals then?
* Original songs. While I end up liking the serious original songs, they're just no competition for real songs. Preferably epic songs for such an occasion.
* The lack of resolution to Karofsky's arc. It feels like that should've been a season-contained story that deserved a wrap up by the finale.
* The lack of follow-up on Rhodes and Will staying in New York for some time to support her.
* The lack of development for Vocal Adrenaline.
* The point of Sunshine's storyline.
* Will's cockiness whenever someone shows him up (Goolsby, for example).
* Beiste's long period of absence.
* Quinn not turning into a flesh-eating monster and murdering somebody :rofl:
* The fact that it really didn't feel like the end of the year. :thumbsdown:

They tied at sectionals, but they lost at Regionals.

No, they tied at Sectionals (Warblers did Hey Soul Sister), but then they (the Warblers) lost at regionals (Warblers did Candles and Raise Your Glass)

I thought it was okay. It wasn't bad but it didn't grab my attention like a season finale should.

I noticed that too :lol: :lol: :rofl:
Also Santana's covered laugh in the beginning of "My Cup". Awesome and cute :D Generally the faces during "My Cup" were awesome :D And the song is awesome too of course :lol:

I liked the episode! Although I think the Regional's original songs were better than the National's ones!

I think I too am blinded by the awesomeness that was the Wicked set, it was magical... literally.

While there were certainly issues with this episode, I can't deny that I enjoyed it. So much fun was had by all, and drama, but we love a bit of drama. Sorry I may still be on a "Wicked" high.

Is it nerdy that when that scene was on I walked up to the TV and pointed to where I was sitting in the theater when I saw Wicked?
