Relive the funniest moments that happened before the opening credits of " The Office. Watch the video. Graduation is finally here, and McKinley High's class of looks to the past and present while contemplating the future.
Spoilers for the season finale of Glee below:. One beef I often have with Glee episodes is that they move too fast, go in too many directions, try to cram in too much at once. Graduating is something you do, but in the moment it feels like something that happens to you , suddenly and all at once, like going over a waterfall. It hit a lot of stories and reminisced with a lot of callbacks. I particularly liked Mr.
It was graduation time, which meant the tears got started nice and early, if that sort of thing embarrassingly happens to you each May with finales left and right. In all the talk about who is going where next year, people forget about Mr. The whole thing kicked off with Kurt as he headed to the auditorium to talk with his dad. Waterworks Alert!

It features the graduation of the McKinley High class of , and with it, eight members of the New Directions glee club. The episode introduces special guest star Gloria Estefan as Maribel Lopez, Santana 's Naya Rivera mother, and has appearances by six other parents of graduating seniors. The episode was well received by many reviewers, though some were not as happy with it. The enthusiastic ones cited the combination of humor and tears, past events and present revelation, while those who were more critical felt there was not enough time to wrap up all the storylines or that it strayed into sappiness. Particular praise was given to the scene with Burt and Kurt Hummel that featured the former's "Single Ladies Put a Ring On It " number, which was the favorite performance of the reviewers, and the scene when Finn tells Rachel he's sending her to New York instead of marrying her, which was described as Monteith's and Michele's best acting on the show. Other songs were given a less enthusiastic reception. Will Matthew Morrison gives the members of New Directions one final assignment: perform songs to say goodbye to each other. He starts by singing " Forever Young ". The graduating seniors as a group perform " You Get What You Give ", and tell the underclassmen that it is now their glee club. The underclassmen, joined by Will, sing " In My Life " to express their gratitude to the seniors.
