As one of the biggest ‘Glee’ fans out there, I must sadly say that I agree with creator Ryan Murphy’s decision to officially end the show after the death of Cory Monteith.
Ryan Murphy knew how he wanted Glee to end — with a conversation between Rachel (Lea Michele) and Finn (Cory Monteith). After Cory’s tragic death, I believe it is a good idea for Ryan to end the show.
Ryan Murphy: You Made The Right Choice To End ‘Glee’
On Oct. 18, Ryan said that the whole show was “designed around Rachel and Finn’s story” — the love story that got us all hooked on Glee. From season one, Finn’s smile, charm, and goofiness made us fall head over heels in love with him — just like Rachel did.
Off screen, Cory’s warm heart made Lea, 27, fall hard for him — and they had plans to live happily ever after.
“I always knew how it would end,” Ryan said at an event at the Paley Center. “I knew what the last shot was – he was in it. I knew what the last line was – she said it to him.”
That statement alone makes me choke up — hopefully one day, Ryan will reveal us what that line was. On the tribute episode, Rachel told Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison) that she had been talking to Finn since his death. So, maybe he will show her speaking to him, and somehow incorporate that line in.
Ryan does have an idea of how he will end the series now that Cory’s gone, and he said it will, of course, honor the late actor.
Finn & Rachel Were A Love Story Like No Other
While Lea was a big part of Glee‘s tribute episode for Cory, we’re sure that Ryan also took her opinion into consideration when it came to decide about ending the show.
Lea has been having an extremely tough time with the loss of her boyfriend.
While Lea also said that being on set with the rest of the cast does help her, and she’s been helping them cope as well, it will be good for her to get back to work on other things after next season.
We know she has an album coming out soon, and is doing what she can to stay positive. When the show ends next year, it will allow for her to put a chapter of her life behind her — a chapter that showed her what true love was, but had an unfortunate heartbreaking ending.
What do you think of the series ending after season six? Let me know!
