Seeing it as an opportunity to finally lose her virginity to Finn, she agrees and leaves - he seems very excited.

Blaine sits down with him, telling him that they are young, they have time, and that before they have sex, he wants Kurt to be comfortable, so he can be himself. He eyes Kurt up and down and states, "Besides, tearing off all your clothes is sort of a tall order.

She says that it doesn't matter if she has interest in anyone, as she believes they could never like her back. Sebastian Later, Blaine is seen walking through the hallways of Dalton Academy with the intention of inviting his friends to see the McKinley production of West Side Story. He walks in on the Warblers performing Uptown Girl with their French teacher who just happens to be around at the time.
A new Warbler, Sebastianimmediately notices Blaine and pulls him into the number with them. As soon as they are done, Blaine gives them a standing ovation and when they beg him to return to Dalton, he politely refuses giving them the invitations. Sebastian stays behind to speak to Blaine.
The conversation moves on and Sebastian asks why Blaine left Dalton. Blaine avoids the question, simply stating, "Let's just say that McKinley is where my heart is. He agrees to talk again, looking confused about what just happened and what Sebastian's true intentions are towards him. In the next scene, Finn - very shyly - asks Puck to recommend a condom brand.
Puck jumps to the conclusion that he's cheating on Rachel, stating that it's "not cool," even though he has cheated many times in the past.
Finn quickly corrects him, saying he's going to use them with Rachel. Coach Beiste calls for the football team to gather around while Puck and Finn part ways. She introduces Cooter, and they flirt blatantly while the team is still watching.

Attend a circuit party on an island. Next we see Artie seeking out Mr Cooter. They go to the set of West Side Story and Artie demands to know whether he likes Coach Beiste - he says that he does, and that he had asked her out, but she refused every time.
Artie tells him to ask her out again but this time, be obvious. Next, Blaine and Sebastian are seen walking to a table at the Lima Bean. While entirely an accident which stemmed from Finn's miserable dancing ability, he winds up breaking Rachel's nose in "Born This Way".
Finn's dancing has never been pretty to look at, but this is the first time it resulted in bodily harm. Anytime that there is something which may affect Rachel's singing ability, it becomes the end of the world.
Ultimately, she decides against the surgery and heals fine, but surely she was afraid of Finn's dancing anytime they were on stage together. Despite being in a relationship, they did not attend their senior prom as a couple.
At least, not at first. Thankfully at the midnight hour, Rachel arrives at prom with Finn and they become crowned Prom King and Queen. Even if it came as a result of some "funny math", they still got to share a beautiful moment together.
While the end result is beautiful, they were never able to have the full prom experience together. After being in a relationship together, Finn and Rachel decide that they will take the next physical step. While Finn has nothing but his love for Rachel on his mind, Rachel has other motives. She is secretly hoping that having a physical experience will make her a better actress ahead of her college auditions.
Naturally, Finn is appalled by her thought process, and does not go through with the deed. Rachel is one of the most driven characters on television, but this was a new extreme for her. Finn's feelings were not even considered here, which given their time together, does not make any sense.
The way that Glee approached both Cory and Finn's death was commendable, and allowed fans to grieve. Watching the entire Glee Club cry over their fallen hero was a bleak reminder that he would never make another in-person appearance on the show. Despite being universally loved for his time on the show, both the world and Rachel had to go on without him. It is well-known that Glee's original ending would have featured Rachel and Finn happy together.
Unfortunately, fans can only picture this in their minds. Let us know in the comments! They also hug at the end of their performance. In Born This Way, Finn accidentally whacks Rachel in the nose while dancing, causing her nose to be broken. He accompanies her to the hospital visit. He tells Rachel he will not leave until they find out if her nose is broken. When they find out it is, the doctor suggests her to get a nose job. When Rachel shows the club her plans for her nose job, Finn tells her "Rachel, please don't do this.
However, she is won over by a "Barbra-vention", which Finn attends. In the end, Rachel opts against the nose job and tells Finn to "next time, watch out for the schnoz", showing their relationship is still friendly. In Rumours, after the school's gossip newspaper, ran by Sue, reports about Quinn's secret meetings with Sam, Finn decides to check on him and goes on a stakeout with Rachel. The first time they go, they see Kurt leaving Sam's motel room instead of Quinn, so they do the same the following night.
While waiting for someone to appear, Rachel asks Finn why he got back together with Quinn. He replies that he doesn't know, but Rachel answers her own question for him; because you forgive your first love everytime.
Finn tells her that what he doesn't like about Quinn is that you never know what she feels or thinks, and notes that with Rachel it was the opposite. As the duo finally spots Quinn, they are unknowingly photographed by Jacob, The Muckraker's reporter.
The next day, Finn and Quinn confront each other about what they were doing last night, and decide to solve the misunderstandings in their relationship through a song. After a very blank duet on I Don't Want To Know, Quinn tells Rachel to stop trying to steal Finn from her and proceeds to threaten him with a break up if he even sings with Rachel. Rachel ignores her words and sings Go Your Own Way to Finn, who plays the drums during it and seems to enjoy the performance, much to Quinn's dismay.
Having found out the truth about Sam, they visit him and his siblings and apologize in the name of the whole glee club, giving him back his guitar, which he had to sell. James is back, and Rachel is going to prom with him as a group with friends. They have a small argument, where Rachel tells Finn he has to respect whoever she dates, as she has to get used to the feeling of having a broken heart every time she sees him with Quinn.
Finn responds by telling her that he still cares about her. Finn then explains how he feels he has no dignity handing out Prom King and Queen leaflets around school and is stressed about what to get Quinn for a corsage. Rachel suggests something simple that won't distract from her face, before walking away with a saddened look.
Finn and Quinn arrive to see them, resulting in tension between Jesse and Finn which is quickly defused by Mercedes. At the prom, Rachel then performs Jar of Hearts for the slow dance at the prom. She aims the song towards Finn, and they both stare at one another throughout the number for long periods of time, which doesn't go un-noticed by Quinn.
Jesse is also staring at Rachel through the performance. Soon, he breaks away from Quinn and confronts Jesse, telling him not to get so personal and to keep it PG. Jesse responds by telling him its none of YB Your Business his business, and she isn't his girlfriend anymore. The two begin to push one another until Finn swings his fist at Jesse, causing them both to get kicked out of prom.
This altercation proves Finn still has deep feelings for Rachel. Later when the prom king and queen are announced and Quinn loses, she gets upset. Rachel follows her to the bathroom and tries to comfort her, but Quinn blames Rachel for losing saying that nobody would ever have voted for her because they know he Finn would rather be with Rachel, proving that Quinn is actually aware that Finn still loves Rachel.
Rachel tries to deny it, but Quinn then slaps her, quickly apologizing afterwards. In Funeral, Finn suggests he and Rachel should be the one singing the duet together at Nationals. Rachel can be seen smiling at his suggestion, only to be denied by Quinn and Jesse. Rachel thinks about Finn as she sings My Man for her audition. The song is about loving someone always, no matter what.
Finn breaks up with Quinn, telling her that he doesn't feel tethered to her--that feeling of loving someone so much that you always feel connected--like Sue felt for her sister. Quinn asks if he feels that way for Rachel and Finn doesn't answer, confirming that it is Rachel that he loves. He sees Rachel leave the funeral after he breaks up with Quinn, and longily watches her. Finn later goes to find Rachel in the auditorium and sees Jesse kiss Rachel.
He looks visibly shaken and pulls out a single pink tulip from behind his back, meant for Rachel, as she and Jesse leave. He "casually" asks her about her relationship with Jesse which she replies that she doesn't need any distractions keeping her from winning Nationals. Finn asks the Glee guys if it was cool if he and Rachel sang a duet for Nationals which they are perfectly fine with. But, Puck confronts him about "the big Jewish elephant in the room" and tells him that he should ask Rachel out.
Finn sends Rachel a text telling her to meet him at the bridge and to wear nice clothes. She meets Finn, holding a bouquet of flowers, and saying this is a "work date" so they're not technically on a date. Rachel obviously doesn't buy it but goes along with it anyways. They go on their "work date" to Sardi, a very nice NY restaurant.
Finn tells Rachel he admires her for always dreaming big and tells her she looks pretty. He is about to confess his love for her but Rachel interrupts him, seeing Patti LuPone standing by in the corner. Patti tells Rachel that Finn is very cute. Finn implys he wants to get back together on a moonlight stroll where Puck, Sam, Artie, and Mike serenade them with the song Bella Note. He says it wasn't really a work date and he just wants her back. She admits to knowing that it wasn't a work date and falls silent.
He tries to kiss her but she hesitates and says, "I can't. Rachel confides in Kurt, telling him she wants to go to college in New York but doesn't know if she can leave Finn. Kurt takes her to the Broadway stage and the two of them sing For Good.
She tells him she's decided that she's not going to choose between her career and love because they are combined - Broadway. Rachel compliments Finn on the song, saying that it's really good. Finn replies that he doesn't care about the song and is really confused with why Rachel is suddenly denying him. He says "all you wanted is for us to be Finchel Kiss at Nationals together and I'm practically begging to be with you and suddenly you're not interested.
Rachel is clearly hiding her true feelings, and Finn is upset. At Nationals, Rachel and Finn sing an original song called Pretending and get caught up in the moment and kiss onstage. They break apart with shocked expressions, implying they still do love each other deeply. They continue to sing Light Up the World as if nothing happened. Rachel and Finn talk after they perform, briefly talking about their kiss.
