Rachel had “Finn” tattooed on her side and didn’t tell anyone. It’s just for her.
That is honestly the sweetest plotline Glee has ever had.
And then you have this one, which is true heartbreak, that doesn’t fit in any other category
"I need a male lead who can keep up with me vocally."
In 1x01 Rachel wants a male lead to sing with. She wants Finn.
In 5x03 Rachel wants her true love to be alive. She wants Finn.
