But Rachel's break down doesn't end there. Michele redeems her vocal talents with a tearful "Cry." If only the NYADA judge could see that, Rachel would ace her try out!
What will she do now? Certainly not give up. That's not like her at all. Surely she will formulate a come back scheme. Which should fail, because Rachel working as a struggling actress could be quite fun.
Finally, "Choke" sees Puck loudly vow to drop out of high school with a rocking "School's Out." It's a great number, but doesn't entirely fit. It feels like this isn't quite the direction the writers want to go with Puck, but can't resist such an alluring song.
Puck soon rethinks his ways after seeing his deadbeat dad (Thomas Calabro, Melrose Place), and asks his friends to help him study. Which they do while singing an updated "The Rain in Spain." Yet, Puck fails the test, and thus the class, anyway.
Poor Puck. He wants to do well, but doesn't want to show that he cares. His efforts are too little, too late, but that doesn't mean that anyone wants to see him without a future. Puck will probably never go to college or be rich, but he could build himself a respectable life, if he chooses to. It's too bad his efforts are half-hearted. Although, this might mean he could stick around for season four.
Glee continues its build up to graduation Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on FOX.
