‘Glee’ Ending — Ryan Murphy Shares Final Scene For Finn & Rachel During Cory Monteith’s Eulogy:
“The ending of Glee is something I have never shared with anyone, but I always knew it. I’ve always relied on it as a source of comfort, a North Star. At the end of season 6, Lea [Michele]‘s Rachel was going to have become a big Broadway star, the role she was born to play. Finn was going to have become a teacher, settled down happily in Ohio, at peace with his choice and no longer feeling like a Lima loser. The very last line of dialogue was to be this: Rachel comes back to Ohio, fulfilled and yet not, and walks into Finn’s glee club. “What are you doing here?” he would ask. “I’m home,” she would reply. Fade out. The end.”

The moving excerpt is published on both the Entertainment Weekly website and in the magazine’s special double issue, which is currently on newsstands. It is from a eulogy Ryan delivered in July 2013.
In the wake of the late actor’s death, the co-creator announced that the series would end after season six. Nothing can make up for the loss of Cory, but it’s comforting that fans can find solace in the touching ending that Ryan always envisioned for the series.
