Back in the choir room, Will tells her that she wins, and that he and the kids lose. Sue: "I know you think I'm heartless, Will. And you may have a point. I spend large segments of each day picturing you choking on food. And I recently contacted an exotic animal dealer because I had a very satisfying dream that the two of us went to a zoo and I shoved your face into one of those pink inflamed monkey butts that weeps lymph. And I know that you think I'm a bad person because I remain unmoved by your nattering of trite platitudes to your ill-shapen students about how the human condition can be improved by, yes, singing about it. And I've proven that I can wipe you and your Glee Club off the face of this earth. But what kind of a world would that be, Will? A world where I couldn't constantly ridicule your hair. A world where I couldn't make fun of you for tearing up more than Michael Landon in a sweeps-week episode of Little House on the Prairie. And you know what, Will? Sue Sylvester's not sure she wants to live in that kind of world. So I had a little talk with Figgins."
Smear sideways to the Maharishi's Sanctum of Second Chances. Sue is there to engage in one last act of blackmail against Figgins. She wants him to give the Glee Club another year. Will he agree?
Smearing back to the music room, we learn that the answer is yes, he would agree, because Sue has just told Will that the Glee Club has another year. Sue: "You're a good teacher, Will. Now I don't like you so much, but I admire you and the work you're doing with your kids, I really do." And then she shakes his hand and wishes him good luck. Sue: "I relish the thought of another full year of constantly besting you." Will tells Sue that she's actually a really good person. She insists that he let go of her hand and stop being nice before she pukes in his mouth.
Music room. The kids are sitting there, unhappy, when Will tells them they have another year. They're thrilled. After a bit of cheering, Rachel wants to start rehearsing for next year's Sectionals. Will tells them to relax and take the summer off, so he can cast some additional students. I mean, so they can honor the narrative fiction that the school year is over. And then he says that he wants to sing a song for them. He pulls out a ukulele, and Puck joins him on his guitar. And he sings the Israel Kamakawiwo'oleversion (a.k.a. Brudda Iz) version of "Over the Rainbow." While he sings, the kids snuggle up with each other and exchange friendly looks and affectionate touches. And we cut over to the hospital, where we see Shelby adopting baby Beth. And then back to bask in the sweetness of New Directions for the final verse, before the screen goes black.
