With only one more season left for Glee, there’s a certain bittersweet feeling in the air.

Ratings are dropping and although the writing has greatly improved since season 4, the show’s coming to its end. The good thing is that the writers know this in advance (which isn’t always the case) so hopefully we’ll get a good ending to what has been six years of impromptu musical numbers and over achieving underdogs. There are certain things though which have to be done.

Rachel’s Success

Rachel’s destined for fame. The show has always revolved around her talent, which is shown to be the best in the group. With a career already on Broadway and the prospect of a TV series next season, Rachel’s undoubtedly going to be a star. Her sudden interest in being on TV does seem unfounded though. Every season she’s announced her dream of being on Broadway, and it seems a shame that now she’s there she doesn’t want it. Maybe it would have been better to still work towards this dream in season 5, with her finally achieving it at the end of season 6. Either way, her success seems inevitable.

The Klaine wedding

Kurt and Blaine are engaged and according to Ryan Murphy, Kurt’s going to be married by the age of 21. Kurt will be 21 during May next season, which can only mean one thing: A Klaine wedding. Whilst they still seem a bit young – don’t get me wrong, I love them together – if they’ve got the love, it can work. And they certainly seem to have the love. Although arguing ever more frequently, there’s no long term damage if make up sex is involved.

Hopefully this wedding will be everything Kurt and Blaine are; classy and sophisticated with a delightful dash of romance. It wouldn’t be complete without a good Burt and Kurt scene beforehand, and hopefully we’ll see the familiar face of Cooper there as well. Maybe even Blaine’s parents.

Hints at the future of other characters

Whilst Rachel’s future is sure to be told, the series wouldn’t be complete without knowing what will happen to the rest of the characters too. Success in the entertainment industry isn’t realistic for all of them (was Glee ever realistic though?), but it would be nice if it happened to some of them, whilst the others found success in “normal” jobs. Will Kurt continue to peruse performing or get a stable job at Vogue and put his internship to good use? It will also be interesting to find out what will happen to Sam. If his modelling career really is over, I can’t think of what he’s going to do.

Return of old characters

It’s always nice to see old faces, and the end of Glee wouldn’t be complete without the return of Quinn, Puck, and others. Perhaps even a mention of Shelby and Beth? Mr Schue will probably pop up too, providing more creepy antics. A return of Karofsky would be pretty interesting as well. Although it’s likely there’ll be some guest stars thrown in to try and up the ratings, I’m hoping that drop-ins of old characters will replace these.

Wrapping up old story lines

I’m kind of torn with this one. Should Glee throw a blind eye to previously dropped storylines, or try and wrap them up as best as possible? The main one I’m thinking about is Sue’s baby who seemed to exist for one episode. Then again, it might be for the best to limit the amount of storylines to a few good ones the fans care about.

A powerful ending

The most obvious point. Glee has touched the hearts of many, sending a strong message that it’s okay to be who you are. The ratings may have dropped, but the hardcore fans are still watching. It seems only fitting that Rachel have the last line. I’m not a Rachel stan, but she’s been shown to be the most talented and successful character throughout the show, and she is arguably the “main” character in the group. They may have sung four “Don’t Stop Believin’” four times already, but it would be fulfilling if they did it one last time in the last ever episode. Perhaps dedicated to Finn.

Overall, Season 6 is sure to have some “obvious” storylines, but it looks like a whole new vibe will be brought to the show with Rachel moving to LA. With only one more season to go, lets hope the writers get it right.

Belle skips around town as the townspeople observe the “funny girl” in this uplifting sequence from the movie. You can’t help but get excited for Beauty and the Beast after watching this, and Emma sounds great!

In related news, the cast and crew kicked off their press tour today in Paris. Disney released the following adorable photo of Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Josh Gad, Luke Evans, director Bill Condon and composer Alan Menken as they start publicizing the movie, which opens in theaters March 17:

Can’t wait to see it!

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 4×15 brings the L.M.D. storyline to a truly wild end. Here’s what to expect from “Self Control”!

You don’t know what’s coming

Yeah, there’s a synopsis for “Self Control” — “Suspicion turns to paranoia when the team doesn’t know who can be trusted as more LMDs infiltrate S.H.I.E.L.D.” But that’s the equivalent of saying that Iron Man is about a goateed man who can fly.

Sure, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 4×15 answers a lot of questions about who is and who isn’t a robot. More profoundly though, the episode goes in for a final knead and punch of the ideas that have been floating around all season.

Free will and humanity. Sacrifice and love. The nature of reality — and even of life itself. Beneath the plot, surprises, and pain, that’s what’s really going on in the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. spring finale.

That, and the characters who get caught in the middle.

Jed Whedon is Not. Playing. Around.

Executive producer and showrunner Jed Whedon is the man behind the pen and the camera in “Self Control,” and he’s there for a reason. Whedon’s first try at the director’s chair on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is operatic, incisive, and perpetually gut-clenching.

Yes, there are lovely and disturbing vistas, an artistry that comes from a deliberate and careful eye. But more important is the unshakable Whedon impulse that animates Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 4×15, that builds through the episode like a cresting tide.

You know that unmistakable sense that someone is laughing behind the scenes? Yeah. That’s why Jed Whedon is here.

What’s next?

Well, that’s a very good question. “Self Control” leaves us with a few razor-like possibilities, all of which lead down spiky corridors of questions. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 4×15 is here to leave us thirsty for the season’s final seven episodes, and that’s exactly what it does.

Oh, and to answer your next question…

Cliffhanger?

Uh, yes. Cliffhanger.

Oh boy, cliffhanger.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. 4×15, “Self Control,” airs Tuesday, Feb. 21 at 10:00 p.m. on ABC.

Have President’s Day off? Here are some movies, TV shows, and soundtracks with which to celebrate President’s Day.

‘Hamilton’


Even if you were somehow lucky enough to have already seen the musical, you might as well celebrate today with another listen to the soundtrack. In case you have been living under a rock, Hamilton is a hip-hop, rap, musical about Alexander Hamilton. Yes, Hamilton never became president, but the musical does include multiple would-be presidents. Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and even birthday boy himself George Washington are heavily featured in Hamilton. Based on the biography by Ron Chernow, you can get a history lesson while you listen to great music.

Have President’s Day off? Here are some movies, TV shows, and soundtracks with which to celebrate President’s Day.

‘Hamilton’


Even if you were somehow lucky enough to have already seen the musical, you might as well celebrate today with another listen to the soundtrack. In case you have been living under a rock, Hamilton is a hip-hop, rap, musical about Alexander Hamilton. Yes, Hamilton never became president, but the musical does include multiple would-be presidents. Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and even birthday boy himself George Washington are heavily featured in Hamilton. Based on the biography by Ron Chernow, you can get a history lesson while you listen to great music.

‘Liberty’s Kids’


Liberty’s Kids aired in the early 2000s on PBS. Liberty’s Kids follows three teenagers from varying backgrounds throughout the American Revolution, mentored by Benjamin Franklin. It is geared for children but is still pretty enjoyable for adults. In each episode, the teenagers encounter a significant person or event from the revolution, giving a concise and entertaining history lesson. The show features many important figures throughout the revolution, showing even more presidents than in Hamilton. As one can imagine, Washington is among these.

‘Lincoln’


Lincoln is a 2012, Oscar nominated movie, directed by Steven Spielberg based on Doris Kearns Goodwin’s biography of Abraham Lincoln, Team of Rivals. Instead of a biopic of Lincoln’s entire life, Lincoln is specifically about his passing of the 13th amendment. Essentially directed between each of his science fiction blockbusters, Spielberg also made many significant historical movies, Lincoln among them. Lincoln not only shows his power as a president, but also humanizes him through an Oscar winning performance by Daniel Day-Lewis.

‘1776’


Hamilton is not the first musical about American history. Thankfully, though, because this way there are other options, one of which is 1776. Even more conveniently, the musical 1776 was adapted into a movie in the early 1970s. Heavily implied by its name, 1776 is about the signing of the Declaration of Independence. 1776 definitely has a more classical musical theater vibe than Hamilton. The strange combination of American history and musical theater allows for a humorous yet educational experience. However, as reflective of the history of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, Washington is not a character in the musical; yet, it obviously includes many other significant historical figures.

‘The West Wing’ or ‘The American President’


Unlike the other items on this list, these two are about fictional presidents. But it would be nice if they were real. Of the many politically charged movies and television shows by Aaron Sorkin, these two are specifically about presidents. If you have the day off and want to attempt to binge watch seven seasons, then you may want to check out The West Wing. The West Wing follows President Bartlet and his staff and advisors during their time in the White House. If you want a movie to help you transition between Valentine’s Day and President’s Day then The American President is worth watching. It is a romantic comedy about President Shepherd, who falls in love with a lobbyist.

How else will you celebrate President’s Day?
