As the first season of "Glee" drew to a close last night, there were plenty of lessons that were learned over the course of their first year. But, if there was anything viewers walked away with, it was that crushes and hook-ups are alive and well in the high school universe, especially the fictitious ones. Yes, the students and staff of McKinley High School had a whole lot of warm fuzzies going on for each other this year!
Let's start with the most crushed-on "Glee"-mate, Finn (Cory Monteith). Finn first caught the eye of the super high-strung Rachel (Lea Michele) right from the show's start. The two have had an off-again, on-again romance throughout the season, as he dated (before being cheated on by) Quinn (Dianna Agron) hooked up with Santana (Naya Rivera), was loved from afar (and at one point, in the same room) by Kurt (Chris Colfer), and briefly flirted with Mr. Schuester's ex-wife Terri (Jessalyn Gilsig)!
But, Finn wasn't the only one with a wandering heart and eyes, as Rachel herself briefly had unprofessional feelings for Mr. Schue (Matthew Morrison), smooched Quinn's real baby daddy Puck (Mark Salling) and almost went all the way with glee club rival Jesse St. James (Jonathan Groff). Of course, those two crazy kids finally got their act together in last night's finale. Here's to hoping it lasts!
The rest of New Directions had their own share of cute couplings, as well as heartbreaks. Perpetually-in-love-with-Finn Kurt was sought after by Mercedes (Amber Riley), who briefly had a faux-mance with Puck. Meanwhile, Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz) and Artie (Kevin McHale) turned out to be most suitable pair out of any other couples this season. And Brittany (Heather Morris), well let's just say Brittany would need an entire web of her own.
But, the students of McKinley High weren't the only ones looking for love. After his divorce from Terri, Mr. Schuester finally gave Emma (Jayma Mays) what she was hoping for all along (sorry Coach Tanaka!) But, their timing was all off and he's since locked lips with Shelby Corcoran (Idina Menzel), flirted with April Rhodes (Kristin Chenoweth) and heck, even seduced Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch)! Of course, Sue got hot and heavy with Will's nemesis Bryan Ryan (Neil Patrick Harris) and Will wouldn't give up with fight for her love for Emma and told her so in last night's finale.
Who will (and should) get together, Gleeks? Who will make up and who will break up? Who is (or was) your favorite Glee pairing?
