Back stage, the kids are heading back to their staging area and they are pumped. Tina thinks they have second place in the bag. Rachel: "Screw that, we are gonna win this!" And then Quinn gets ambushed by her mother. You can tell Quinn's not exactly thrilled to see her (probably based on the fact that her mother let her father kick Quinn out of the house). Mrs. Fabray tells Quinn that she left Mr. Fabray. Not because he was an awful human being who threw his pregnant daughter out onto the street (which might have been the kind of reason that would make Quinn forgive her mother for being a spineless facilitator of evil) but because he had an affair with a tattooed tramp (gender unknown). And now Mrs. Fabray wants Quinn to come home and keep her and her pre-dinner cocktails company. Oh, and to keep the baby so Mrs. Fabray can have something to do to fill her empty sham of a life. Is my dislike of Quinn's mother coming across here? I've tried to tone it down; I just hope I didn't go too subtle. Quinn's mother begs her to say something. Quinn, ever willing to comply, tells her, "My water just broke." Commercials.
And now it's time for Vocal Adrenaline, performing Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody." Jesse does most of the singing, and plays piano. The dancing is great, as you would expect. And once they get to the "pulled my trigger, now he's dead," line, we start intercutting scenes of Quinn being rushed to the hospital and giving birth. Along with her mother and Puck, Quinn invites Mercedes into the delivery room. There's a great moment where Quinn's plaintive "Mama?" matches up with Jesse singing the same word in the song. During the long guitar solo, we hear Quinn yelling, "You suck, you suck, you suck, you suuuuck!" at Puck. And then Quinn screaming, "Let me go," as the choir is singing that they will not let her go. And then they echo her cries of "no, no, no, no, no!" Jesse's head emerges from a pulsating vulva made up of Vocal Adrenaline arms and hands just as the baby is crowning. At one point, we also see Rachel, the only member of New Directions to remain at the competition, standing in the wings and glaring at Jesse. As the song reaches the calmer bit just before the end, Quinn has given birth, and everyone in the room is looking happy that things have come to a successful conclusion. (I should say that Puck's happiness is partially hidden by a layer of terror and disgust, now that he's come face to face (so to speak) with the awesome life-generating power of the vagina.) The baby is placed in Quinn's arms just as Jesse is singing "nothing really matters to me." That entire sequence was genius. There has to be some kind of award that will recognize that. And it was so exhausting to watch, that I'm not even going to complain that we're coming to another commercial break five minutes after the last one.
