Full Props episode synopsis:
With graduation around the corner, Will (Matthew Morrison) assigns the glee club one final assignment: songs to say goodbye to the glee club. The seniors as a group sing "You Get What You Give", telling the underclassmen that it is now their glee club and their turn to take care of it.
Kurt (Chris Colfer) reflects on how his experience at McKinley High has enabled other students to be openly gay. His father (Mike O'Malley) meets him in the school auditorium, where he tells Kurt that they grew apart after his mother died, but he felt them begin to grow closer again after seeing him dance to "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" with Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz) and Brittany (Heather Morris) in their old basement; Tina and Brittany then join him on the stage to re-enact the dance.
Mercedes (Amber Riley) reveals that she has been offered a recording contract as a backup singer and that she will be moving to Los Angeles. Mike (Harry Shum, Jr.) reveals that he has been offered a scholarship to attend a dancing academy in Chicago. Both revelations upset Santana (Naya Rivera), who does not want to take her cheerleading scholarship to the University of Louisville.
Quinn (Dianna Agron) reflects that she will be ending her high school life on top where she wanted to. Later, Quinn returns her cheerleading uniform to Sue (Jane Lynch); Sue tells her that she is retiring the uniform, that Quinn reminds her of herself, and that she knows that Quinn will go far in life.
Finn reflects on his high school career, and expresses his belief that he "nailed" his audition for the Actors Studio. While preparing for the graduation ceremony, Finn expresses his disappointment that he was unable to get an honorable discharge from the Army for his father, and questions whether his father would be proud of him.
After the graduation ceremony, Finn, Kurt, and Rachel gather to open their acceptance letters -- Finn for the Actors Studio and Kurt and Rachel for NYADA. Finn and Kurt are rejected, while Rachel is admitted. Rachel decides to defer her admission for a year to help Finn and Kurt apply the next year. He tells her that although he loves her, he does not want to marry her if it means she has to give up her dreams. He also reveals that he will be joining the Army to change his father's discharge. Will and the glee club meet them on the train platform to say goodbye, and a tearful Rachel sings "Roots Before Branches" as she boards the train and arrives in New York.
