Hello darkness, my old friend.
Rachel recently lost the love of her life. This was someone that she was with in High School and thought she’d always be with. They broke up and she believed they would eventually find their way back to each other and they won’t. Then we have Quinn getting back with Puck, someone that she has a history with that started at McKinley, and Mercedes getting back with Sam, someone that she also has a history with that started at McKinley. They’re getting their second chance to make it right and that’s never going to happen for Rachel and Finn. It has to be painful for her to see that. (x)
2x11 The Heart Brings You Back
JAKE: Whoa! Peyton, this place is amazing!
PEYTON: Thanks. It can be, it’s just… it’s harder than I thought.
JAKE: Well when did you ever give up, huh?
PEYTON: The uh, the big news is: Nathan and Haley got married!
JAKE: For real?
PEYTON: Yeah. And it turns out Haley is, like, this mega talented musician and she’s going for it. What’s the face?
JAKE: …Well, when I got off the bus, I saw Haley kissing some guy. He was… kinda scrawny; had a guitar case; sort of… hell-t hair. Who’s he?
PEYTON: Someone she shouldn’t be kissing.
TMZ Guy: So Mark, who do you think won [between you and Cory] in the poll on TMZ?
Mark: …What was the poll?
Cory: Don’t act like you don’t knooooow.
TMZ Guy: It was ‘Who’d You Rather?’
Mark: Who won?
TMZ Guy: It was 50/50! Crazy.
Mark: No way.
TMZ Guy: (to Cory) I can’t tell you who I voted for…
Cory: Clearly you voted for Mark. It’s okay. I’m a little hurt, but it’s okay, I understand.
