BWW Asks: How Should GLEE End?
As BWW reported earlier this month, Glee creator Ryan Murphy recently revealed just where the show's leading characters, Lea Michele's 'Rachel' and Cory Monteith's 'Finn,' would have ended up on the show's final season had it not been for the tragic and untimely death of Monteith this summer.
"Rachel was going to have become a big Broadway star, the role she was born to play," shared Murphy in an In Memoriam piece in the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly. "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."
He added that in the final episode, the two would have been reunited after years apart. "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."
Now that the loss of Monteith and his beloved character Finn took away the possibility of that trajectory, we turn to you, our readers, to find out what you believe is the appropriate conclusion to the musical dramedy. Should the sixth and final season neatly tie up all the loose ends of the McKinley High storylines, or should the focus remain on the futures of Big Apple denizens and long-time besties, Rachel and Kurt? Should Rachel become the next 'Barbra' to hit the Broadway stage? Should Kurt and Blaine have their quintessential 'happily ever after"?
