Forget “Finchel,” that is literally so last season.
Now that Rachel and Finn are no longer an item, I’m thinking we have to take an “out with the old, in with the new” approach to “Glee.” Unlike Finn, Brody liked Rachel immediately upon meeting her, and as Rachel profoundly told Finn, “No matter how rich, famous, or successful I become, I’ll always be the moon-eyed girl who freaked you out in high school.” Story of my life, man. If there’s anything I’ve learned from my tragic dating misadventures, it’s that you should never under any circumstances end up with a guy who cares for you less than you care for him. You can never really recover from that, and thankfully Rachel doesn’t have to feel like a total spaz around Brody.
At any rate, the greatest aspect of graduating high school is having the freedom to move elsewhere with a clean slate, hence I’m holding out for “Brachel” — Brody and Rachel, of course — to become the new and improved Finchel, which you have to admit sounds terrible. It always has, really.
