5. Puck breaks down and decides to join the military
McKinley High's resident bad boy Puck (Mark Salling) struggles with the loss of his best friend and rock Finn. After stealing Finn's memorial tree, Puck is on a rampage until he breaks down sobbing during a heart to heart with coach Dot Jones (Shannon Beiste). Whoa, so Puck is really human and weeps just like the rest of us. So who would have expected that he does an "about face" and decides to serve his country by joining the armed forces.

4. Santana opens a can of whoopass on Sue Sylvester
Santana (Naya Rivera) is out for blood when she finds new cheerio Bree dismantling Finn's makeshift memorial, because Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) told her to take it down. Heading to the principal's office, there is a war of words with Santana telling Sue how much she hates her and Finn hated her too. Sue threatens to call the cops for assault, but Santana gets physical and shoves her into a bookcase.

3. Sue Sylvester sheds a tear as she admits to being wrong
To get over Finn's memorial fiasco, Santana decides to mend things. Yep, hell has frozen over cuz Sue Sylvester admits she is wrong. Sue's Grinch heart grows two sizes as she confesses that she misses Finn and regrets not telling him how great he was and having time "to rail against him and his dopey little glee club."

2. Finn's varsity jacket thief is revealed
Finn's varsity jacket is a keepsake envied by many. Puck wants it; he'll pay for it, and feels it is reserved for those who have earned it. Alas Kurt (Chris Colfer) gives the jacket to a grieving Santana to keep. When the jacket is stolen from Santana, all eyes look to Puck. But it's Emma (Jayma Mays) who discovers the culprit is Mr. Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison). Will is struggling with his own grief over Finn and now it's a secret they share.

1. Rachel Berry sings goodbye to Finn
The most heart-wrenching moment belongs to Rachel Berry (Lea Michele). Tears stream from her eyes as she belts out the tune "Make You Feel My Love" in front of her fellow gleeks. However, Rachel's tribute transcends the small screen. Her performance, at times, seems to be more like Lea singing to her off-screen love Cory as you can hear her heart breaking.
