Rachel has a call-back for 'Funny Girl,' Ryder's catfish girlfriend is exposed, Brittany gets into MIT, there is a wedding and of course Regionals all on the season 4 finale of 'Glee.' It is official, the curtain has closed on season 4 of Glee. So, let's get started:

Rachel Has Her Call-back
Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) has her final callback for Funny Girl, but this is Rachel's only scene in the finale. Wow, she brings down the house by singing "To Love You More" by Celine Dion. Get your hanky ready because tears are shed and her performance results in a simple "We'll let you know." Boo hoo, we'll have to wait until next season to find out how it all turns out for our funny girl.

We Learn Who Catfished Ryder
When the phone goes off, Ryder (Blake Jenner) threatens everyone in New Directions to take out their phones so he can see who is catfishing him. As they hold back from admitting anything, he ups the ante by threatening not to compete in Regionals unless someone comes forward. So Marley (Melissa Benoist) confesses to being the culprit. Later when confronted by Ryder, Marley tries to make amends, but then we find out that it is really Unique (Alex Newell) who was the true culprit. Unique likes Ryder but didn't think he would ever see anything in her because she is not the "typical" definition of beauty. Who do we really feel sorry for now? Angry, Ryder quits the glee club, then returns but says he will never speak with Unique again. So Crazy!

Brittany Goes Crazy Over MIT Acceptance
Speaking of crazy, at the top of the show we learn that Brittany (Heather Morris) is an idiot savant (who knew!) and she is offered a spot at MIT. (Is that how Glee will hide Heather's pregnancy?) This leads to Brittany dumping Sam (Chord Overstreet) and demanding to sing only solos at Regionals. That makes two (Ryder and Brittany) who go off the deep end! Worried about Brittany, Sam calls Santana (Naya Rivera) in NYC for help. Santana returns to McKinley High and confronts Brittany about her wacky ways. The two share "Fondue for Two" and Brittany realizes what is bothering her. Brittany, in a heartfelt speech, tells the glee club that she accepted an early admission to MIT. She reveals she has to leave McKinley High earlier than she thought because she can't let go of this opportunity, and oh BTW, she also gets back with Sam. Wham, bam, thank you ma'am: Brittany is headed to Boston.

And the Winner of Regionals Is...
No surprise here! With the home field advantage, New Directions take the top spot at Regionals and is heading to Nationals. And we thought for a second that Frida Romero (Jessica Sanchez) and the Hoosierdaddies stood a chance against New Directions' renditions of "Hall Of Fame" by The Script featuring will.i.am, "I Love It" by Icona Pop featuring Charli XCX and Marley's original "All Or Nothing."

There is a Wedding, But Not the One We Were Hoping for...
The big news of the night, just not the vow we were hoping for, is that Will (Matthew Morrison) and Emma (Jayma Mays) get married in the choir room. Yes "Wemma" officially wed in front of all of their closest friends (which sadly appears to be only New Directions). And though the ceremony is very simple, sweet and sincere, we can't help but wonder, What about Klaine? Earlier in the show, we saw Blaine (Darren Criss) at a jewelry store, where he looked for an engagement ring in order to propose to Kurt (Chris Colfer). After seeing Blaine's distress over the possible proposal, Jan (Patty Duke) suggests that he and Kurt break bread at Breadstix with Liz (Meredith Baxter), her partner, while they talk about love, relationships and marriage. In the middle of their outing, Jan even asks Liz to marry her! In the closing scene after Wemma's wedding, we see Blaine secretly holding a ring box. So will he get down on one knee right there next season in front of the New Directions? Oh, right, the cliffhanger!
