After five whole seasons of the award-winning Glee, it was hard to imagine how the show could keep pulling out more incredible plotlines to keep us interested.

But it did – the development of Kurt and Blaine’s relationship, Rachel’s initial struggle to follow her dreams in New York, and Will and Emma’s desire for a family were all storylines we were totally hooked by.

Now, to celebrate the release of Glee Season 5 on DVD, we look at the five best moments of the entire series.

When Blaine asks Kurt to marry him

Kurt had been through so much pain and misery coming to terms with being gay throughout his high school career, so when he met and fell in love with Blaine we all thought there was a proper fairytale ending to his story. Sadly it wasn’t to be, and the couple had more than their fair share of ups and downs, culminating with Blaine cheating when Kurt moved to New York with Rachel . However, they made up – and then this gorgeous scene in Episode 1 of Season 5 restored all our hope in human nature .

Mr Schuester finally breaks down at Finn’s death

For the past five seasons he’s been the strong mentor who believes the best of each of his Glee club members. But with the death of Finn Hudson (and real life star Cory Monteith), Will Schuester really struggles with his own emotions. The scene in which he finally breaks down and sobs into Finn’s trademark red jacket is so moving we still get goosebumps.

Santana rains on Rachel’s parade

Rachel has followed her dream and moved to New York – she’s even bagged herself a role in Broadway show Funny Face. Everything is great, right? Uh, wrong. Roommate and former rival Santana finds out through Rachel that the audition to be her understudy will soon be taking place and manages to turn up AND impress the director with her own rendition of Don’t Rain On My Parade. Ouch.

Will and Emma welcome their baby boy

It’s Rachel’s opening night and Mr Schuester’s promised to come and watch her – but he’s called away at the last minute because his wife Emma is in labour with their much-wanted child. Will gets home just in time to watch little Daniel Finn being born. Sniff.

The Season 5 finale song

How perfect was Bastille’s Pompeii as a song choice for the very last performance of Season 5? In a scene that borrowed heavily from the original Fame movie, all the main characters got together to sing and dance in the street and it was BRILLIANT.
