Chez Schue, later that day. Having expected Terri to be spending the entire afternoon over at Sheets 'N Things, Will sneaked back into his apartment to change for Emma's wedding, only to have Terri surprise him when she unexpectedly returns from work in the middle of her shift. They attempt some uncomfortable small talk before getting to the weepy fallout from last week's shocking revelations regarding betrayal and mendacity and unsightly pregnancy pad-related rashes, but it's just a coda to their story arc over the first thirteen episodes, and while it's of course well-played by Matthew Morrison and Jessalyn Gilsig (especially Jessalyn Gilsig), all you really need to know at this point in the series is that she wants him back, and that he thinks she's a scary mutant freak. Next!
Cut to The Edward J. Veasey Memorial VFW Hall Post 1275, which has been lavishly decorated for Emma and Ken's sham wedding. One problem: Nobody's bothered to show up, as Will discovers when he enters to find Emma sitting at a table, alone, in her perfect Audrey Hepburn wedding gown. "Where's Ken?" he buhs. "Home, I'd imagine," Emma sighs before adding, "Probably trying to regain some of the pride that I stole from him." Off Will's perplexed expression, Emma elaborates, "He dumped me -- he said moving the wedding for Sectionals was the last straw." Will bumbles something about thinking Ken understood the entire situation, and Emma gently notes that Ken understood the entire situation all too well. Will, on the other hand, has been a clueless dipshit about the entire situation ever since the series began, so Emma's forced to spell it out for him like so: She didn't go to stupid Sectionals for the stupid kids -- she went to stupid Sectionals for stupid Will. Okay, so I paraphrased a bit. Sue me. In any event, Stupid Will has the gall to appear flabbergasted at this so-called revelation, and just when I've become impatient enough with this scene to fast-forward through to the end of it, Emma drops an actual bombshell: Understandably unable to return to McKinley given how badly she's handled everything in both her personal and professional lives as of late, she's e-mailed her resignation to Figgins, and her last day is this coming Monday. Poor Emma dissolves into tears and rises to flee, but Will grabs at her arm at the last moment to remind her, "I just left my wife." "Exactly," Emma replies. "You just did." With that, she offers him a brave little smile before scurrying from the hall, leaving him all by his lonesome to brood.
