Good recap; I always enjoy your POV.  I don't think Jesus is dead. I think it's Ana. Her story line is reaching an end point with no further character progression that makes sense.  Some question of whether the baby survives in my mind as she's far enough along for it to be viable. The show has a positive vibe at heart, so I don't see them killing off Jesus.  An interesting arc would be if Mariana (the dancer) ends up in a wheelchair; give them a chance to explore physical (dis)abilities, but that's probably more than the show will take on.

I think the writers of the final episode should never be allowed to work in Hollywood again.  What a travesty, and that's saying a lot, for a show that frequently was badly written. The whole future/past thing was ridiculous.  They could have accomplished the same thing by having all the original glee members meet for a reunion where they planned a memorial/scholarship in Finn's name and completely skipped the entire "Sue" part.  Mr. Shue and Sue could have been written in to implement the memorial and scholarship program.  The whole political thing was such crap it ruined it for me.

The show is so much fun to watch!  IMO it's the first time a show has incorporated music the right way - it's what Smash and Glee wanted to be.

@DesertFox @Username814 I guess it makes sense, but it almost sounds like most of them are willing to accept not winning just to be part of Blake's "stable".  Blake tells a lot of the country singers he will take them all the way and they will win, but I guess some of the other judges do that, too; one reason I respect Pharrell is he doesn't bs as much.  It's a tough industry; I guess maybe the realists are happy just getting some of Blake's connections, but it makes for predictable and sometimes boring tv.  Let's just call if "Country Voice" and be done with it, lol.

Why do the country singers always pick Blake?  Then they go up against each other in the battle rounds.  They stand a better chance of getting through the early rounds if they are not competing against Blake's other singers. So much for strategy.

It was nice for her to have a chance to show a broader audience that she really has pipes.  Until tonight, I bet many people just knew her as some crazy performance artist.

Great to see J Hudson on the tiny screen.  but Empire is all about Taraji P Henson and Terrence Howard - they are so freakin incredible in this show.  Guest stars are fine but they have to keep these two the focus!

I feel so badly for this child.  I hope she gets through this. But lots of people have hard times growing up and have less than perfect parents.  She needs to realize that whatever happened in her life before, she owns it now.  The only way she is going to survive is if she takes responsibility for her choices from this moment on.  I hope she can make peace with her past and move on.

What happened to "we don't negotiate with terrorists"?  Especially ones with bad haircuts and "stage 5 cheese ankle" (thanks, Steven Colbert).  They should release it on the internet for free for EVERYONE to see around the world!!!  It's not like they can blow up each computer and tv.  Stuff that in your soup bowl hat, Kim Jong None!

Could have just ended the show after they won - they literally broke the mold!  So good individually and so good together.  Always blown away by Kirstie's voice.  I kind of feel sorry for acapella groups that try to follow...

We've joked for years that when Alex says "you won't be around to play final Jeopardy" it means the contestant is taken out in the alley and shot!  Perhaps instead of "you won't be around" he might consider saying "you don't qualify for final Jeopardy".  Otherwise, the Jeopardy sounds pretty final, lol. 
I guess her heirs get the $1000......

Fleur is not at all the kind of artist I usually gravitate to (more the Ella Henderson type) but I found something intriguing about her. Then I started looking at all her clips here. Then I couldn't get enough. She totally pulled me in and I'm a fan. She doesn't have to best voice in the world but there's something about her...and I love watching artists who seem to be having a good time, too.  She's killing it, knows it, and it is infectious. She would be a great winner!

Usually the winners are potentially great recording artists but not anyone I would want to see live; in her case, it's all about the live performance.
