@ Katya and Anna It was not an error. When Unique joins New Directions, Brittany tells Unique "That's a great haircut Mercedes. I thought you graduated." See for yourself here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQMVe439Myg. It was just a pun on Brittany not distinguishing Unique from Mercedes.

@Katia I noticed that too. Weird.

For first time I totally agree with all. They need to move on with the series even if we love Rachel and Kurt.

But I love the original cast :(

Wish they had done the spin off so bad!

I thought this was the best episode of this season. I think they are doing a solid job of crossing the two worlds together. Its an almost impossible challenge. Glee is as much the high school and choir room as it is Rachel Berry and Kurt. I think eventually the New York story line could become its own show but for right now it needs to be contained in the regular show as people come to learn and grown fond of the new characters. It took 3 or 4 episodes when Glee first started to achieve that too. But I do believe it is happening with the new kids.

All high school based shows face this problem and it cant go the route of Saved by the Bell the College years, so we have to let the show develop as it does. Honestly the Finn and Rachel inclusion in the play I found completely heart breaking and beautiful all at the same time. To me it served as a reminder to what got us to here as fans and respecting the shows roots.

The. Episode was good. The problem i am having is cant emotionally connect with the show anymore. For three seasons i cried with them,i laughed with them, i wanted at times to hug them, sometimes kick thier butts , and i rooted for them. I find myself watching now and unconsciously mumbling ,move on, really ? ,stupid, bored. Lol. I think the problem is that everything seemed forced on me. The relationships established right away,couples were formed, love triangles created. I had no time to like the new characters. I dont root for anything because its decided for me. I dont feel invested in them or the show any longer. It almost feels like a remake with different actors but same characters and story. We all know they usually fail. Murphy should have taken fans advice say good bye to glee and do the kurt blaine,rachel and finn spin off. He kept glee and created new normal. Think he blew it .

Ok, I really liked this one.
I liked how real the whole brody thing played out, because in real life, moving on too fast after a heartache, instead of actually taking the time to step back and think, can be a bad idea. And I like that it will give Rachel the time to grow up by and for herself as a woman, not as a part of a couple.
Darren and Chris were spot on as usual. My heart still hurts for Kurt and Blaine, but as for Santana and Brittany, it pointed the hurt and indecision and mixed feelings in the aftermarth of a break up where love itself is not the main issue.
The newbies are growing on me. One point, though: they'd better handle the whole eating disorder issue with care!
And finally, I like how the show makes fun of itself through Sue's rant about Finn-as-the-new-Shue.

Very interesting comments from everyone!Has our favorite show lost its way? I hope NOT! to begin with, Glee is about "music" and last night's episode had plenty of it, plus it all meant something!Kurt watching Blaine sing "Beauty School Dropout" was pure theater and I really liked the way all the characters, old and new" were added into the production rather seamlessly. I also disagree about the costuming...LOVED the "hair-do hair rollers!" Sugar did bring the wonderful and one-of-a-kind Didi Conn to mind, especially since she kept quiet-no way that Didi's unique voice was coming out of her, but the look was there! I'm no fan of Mr. Shue going away and I'm not sure that Finn has enough charisma to carry the show unless he has some sort of personality transplant? In closing I say that its FUN to see the graduates return every now and then, for whatever reason but the show should concentrate on McKinley High and keep the cast "fresh!" In the past, we readily accepted newcomers to the school and I'm so sure that Hollywood is awash with loads of cute teenagers who sing and dance. Bring 'em on and let's all go to high school again...with a whole bunch of talented kids that we love..or hate. It's all part of growing up and there's a lot of good material there to draw upon. Just keep everyone singing and dancing along to the first-rate production of Glee's talented musical producers. THAT'S what we really want from Glee! Bring Kate Hudson to McKinley looking for talent. There's a reason for everyone to show up at McKinley! Looks as if Glee is experiencing growing pains and I hope that in the end, everything is copacetic (kewl dude)!

By the way, did anyone else notice the error in the episode when Brittany is talking to Santana about how Unique's parents want him to be a boy? She calls Unique 'Mercedes'. Weird they didn't catch it!

I wish the NY people had their own spinoff too because I much prefer their story to the boring same ol' same ol' going on back at McKinley with all its repetitive manufactured angst. Is there a chance they could get their own show? Somehow the NY storylines feel far more real, intense, interesting and fresh. I guess I'm just bored with hearing 'sectionals' and 'regionals' and 'cheerios' and Sue Sylvester promising to rain on the Glee club's parade. It just feels like they're re-treading the same old ground.

I love how real it feels that the various couples didn't survive one part of the pairing moving away and changing, even though the best of intentions were there, and a lot of love. I want to see more of how Rachel and Kurt spread their wings. I'm not that interested in most of the other characters, although I do like Santana so would happily see more of her. The others, like Mike, Tina, Mercedes etc should fade away now.

By the way, did anyone else notice the error in the episode? Brittany says "Mercedes' parents want him to be a boy" or some such when talking to Santana when she meant Unique, not Mercedes. I wonder how that passed them by?
