It contains the revelation of an elopement, and two marriage proposals, including the proposal by Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) to Emma Pillsbury (Jayma Mays). While Will's actual proposal to Emma was received with more favor than not, the scene where Will asks Finn (Cory Monteith) to be his best man was roundly condemned: the notion that Will had no adult friends and would ask one of his students was inconceivable to many.
There was acclaim for the subplot featuring Becky's (Lauren Potter) pursuit of Artie (Kevin Mc Hale), and her mental voiceovers by Helen Mirren.
Upon its initial airing, this episode was viewed by 7.50 million American viewers and received a 3.1/8 Nielsen rating/share in the 18–49 demographic.
The total viewership was up from the previous episode, "Extraordinary Merry Christmas".
I never thought that I would graduate high school, let alone go to college, so I have to jump on this offer before it gets taken away,' she announced in a tearful speech.
Ken was replaced in his position as football coach by Shannon Beiste. They eventually start dating when Emma decides she can't wait for Will because he has a wife and "child" on the way.
In the episode Vitamin D, Ken proposes to her (on Terri's instructions because she also doesn't like Will and Emma's relationship), and she agrees as long as they don't move in together, don't see each other after school hours, don't tell anyone about the marriage, and don't wear wedding rings.
At the beginning of the third season, she and Will are living together; they become engaged shortly after New Years, and consummate their relationship near the end of the school year.
Emma leaves Will at the altar midway through the fourth season, but the two later reconcile and marry in the season finale.
