"The Power of Madonna"
Hell-O is the fourteenth episode of season one. It aired on April 13, 2010.
After winning Sectionals, and after Finn and Quinn's relationship ends, Rachel comes to believe she and Finn are dating. Sue comes up with an idea to force Rachel to quit the glee club and ruin their chances at Regionals by getting Brittany and Santana Lopez to seduce Finn away from Rachel. Brittany and Santana ask Finn to go on a date, where he will have the two ladies to himself, and Finn agrees. Later, he tells Rachel he doesn't want to be her boyfriend because he needs to figure out himself and get some time off before going back into dating. Rachel, angry and heartbroken, gives an honest speech to Finn that shows how well she knows him and how he is only dumping her because it is affecting his reputation. He can't come to see that she's the only person who sees and loves him for who he really is, so it was his loss.
Later, Rachel meets Jesse St. James who happens to be the lead singer of rival team Vocal Adrenaline and they start dating. When the date with Brittany and Santana doesn't go well for Finn, he sees what Rachel meant earlier with her speech, and he goes back to Rachel, telling her he wants them to be a real couple now. Rachel tells him that she's glad that he realizes that, but he's too late because she's dating Jesse now. Finn tells her that he thinks Jesse is using her, but she claims that their love is real, saying Finn has to accept that. Still disbelieving that he is too late and finding it suspicious that the lead of their rival school for Regionals asked Rachel out, he goes and tells the glee club about their romance. The other glee club members threaten to kick Rachel out of the club if she continues seeing Jesse, so she pretends to break up with him. Finn asks her to be his girlfriend again, but she turns him down by saying she doesn't want there to be anymore drama in the club. Finn responds by saying, "I'm not just some guy you met at the music store that you can just blow off. I don't give up that easily," which indicates that Finn's not giving up until he wins her back. Now he will be doing the chasing.
