4. Idina Menzel is Rachel's mom!! Fans wanted it from the beginning but Ryan Murphy had said it wasn't happening. Tricky tricky man.
5. But oh, how sweet it was to hear Idina and Lea's duet of "I Dreamed A Dream". Seriously, SUCK IT Susan Boyle!
6.Wet Jonathan Groff. That scene between Jesse and Shelby in the car probably had some great dialogue that was important to the story but I was totally distracted by the HOTNESS that is Groff in a wet t-shirt.
7. "Dream On" duet between Schue and Bryan Ryan. Awesome, over-the-top, amazing falsettos, all while running around a half-finished Les Miz set. Genius.
8. The chemistry, both comic and sexual, between Neil Patrick Harris and Jane Lynch.
Also, check out Tom and Lorenzo's thoughts on the episode. They've captured exactly how I was feeling as I was watching the episode; absolutely my favorite of the season.
