Micahel is the 11th episode of season three. It aired on January 31, 2012.
Finn approaches Rachel exactly three days to the minute after his proposal in Yes/No hoping for an answer. Rachel says she can't make this type of decision on a deadline. Finn worries about her indecision, but Rachel explains that things are happening so fast. When Finn begins to anticipate that he might not get the answer he's hoping for, he suggests she takes a couple more days to think about it.
Rachel asks Quinn's advice regarding the proposal, hoping for a straightforward and thoughtful answer. Quinn advises Rachel that she should make the most of the next few months, but inevitably Rachel and Finn should eventually break up due to Rachel's aspirations. When Kurt receives his NYADA finalist letter, Rachel assumes that she has not been accepted since she has not received one of her own.
Finn and Rachel visit Blaine at his house following his rock salt slushie injury. As they try to provide encouragement and make him feel better, they join Kurt in singing Ben to him.
When the rest of the Glee club heads out to confront the Warblers in the auditorium, Finn asks Rachel to stay back in the choir room. Finn says Rachel hears him better when he's not talking and begins to sing I Just Can't Stop Loving You with her. At the end of the song, Rachel accepts the proposal, saying, "You're the love of my life, and I may not get to have it all, but at least I'll have what matters if we're together." He places the ring on her finger and the two share a kiss. When Rachel shares the news with Kurt that she is a NYADA finalist as well, Kurt asks if she's told Finn yet. Rachel has a thoughtful look on her face.
