In my personal opinion, the most emotional song in Wicked is “For Good”, a bittersweet duet between Elphaba and Glinda. The song is even more emotional than the heartbreaking “I’m Not That Girl”. One of the most unique things about Wicked is that it is about the friendship between Elphaba and Glinda. It has two strong, complex, and young women and it follows their relationship. These two girls start out as extremely reluctant roommates and eventually became the best of friends. Their friendship starts after they bonded at a school dance.
They do find themselves both in love with Fiyero. At first, Elphaba has unrequited love for Fiyero. She didn’t realize that she fell in love with Fiyero until right before “I’m Not That Girl”. Through a plot twist, the unrequited love shifts to Glinda.
In act II, Fiyero breaks up with Glinda after hearing people say rude comments about Elphaba. He just couldn’t believe that she is sticking with them. Glinda does not like hearing the rude comments either, but she doesn’t want to lose her popularity. This is when Fiyero realizes that he loves Elphaba. Sometimes I wonder about Fiyero. I am beginning to think that he had a crush on Elphaba without even realizing it. I found clues right before “I’m Not That Girl” and clues right after that scene that makes you wonder if he has loved Elphaba before he broke up with Glinda.
“For Good” happens at about the very end of Wicked. This is the last time Elphaba and Glinda will see each other. They realized that they changed each others lives for the better. The song is quite emotional, bittersweet and very powerful. They are literally saying what they mean to each other. They know that they were never forget each other.This is the song where everything comes together.
Throughout Wicked, you realize that Elphaba was never wicked, but just misunderstood. Elphaba has a big heart who is smart, determined, talkative, and passionate. Glinda is quite funny and popular who feels privileged. The core of Wicked is the relationship between these two girls. That is why “For Good” is the most emotional song in Wicked. The last time I Saw Wicked, which was my fourth time, I cried during “For Good” because the Elphaba and Glinda were that brilliant.
