From the minute Dianna Agron stared as the queen bee, Quinn Fabray, on Glee,
fans were hooked on her personality and unique level of snark that she brought to the screen. From the pilot episode of Glee,
Dianna brought a character to the show that every single Gleek at one point loved to hate. Quinn Fabray is the resident queen bee, the head Cheerio, who just so happens to be leader of the celibacy club, and also secretly pregnant with her boyfriend’s best friend's baby. Quinn has always had some major skeletons in her closet. Constantly trying to be the head girl in charge has always forced her to be the prettiest most popular girl around.

Dianna Agron has been featured in many different movies and television shows, but she rose to stardom as Ms. Quinn Fabray. Dianna is quite the antithesis of her character in many ways, beginning with the fact that she definitely does not carry the “I’m better than you persona.” While most Gleeks have learned to love Quinn even with all of her antics, it has been quite a long and winding road to get there. To be fair, Quinn automatically had a strike against her when Gleeks found out she was dating Finn. Fans of Glee
immediately knew that Rachel and Finn were end game, and they didn’t want anyone messing that up. Just when people started to get used to the idea of a Quinn and Finn relationship, we found out that she had cheated on Finn with none other than the resident bad boy, Puck. Not only did she cheat, but she also ended up getting pregnant, and then proceeded to tell Finn it was his child even though he was still a virgin. Yikes, being a fan of Quinn Fabray was basically like riding a see saw.

Deep down, everyone could tell that Quinn truly was a pretty good person, she was just afraid to show her true self. Initially, everyone was wondering if she could sing. Would she be a part of the glee club? The answer was all of the above, she debuted her singing talents with the rest of the Unholy Trinity (her, Santana, and Britany) by singing “Say a Little Prayer.” From then on out, Gleeks were hooked on her voice and begging for more. She has been featured in many unforgettable performances, from her “Lucky” duet with Sam, her breathtaking duet with Rachel in “I Feel Pretty/ Pretty,” not to mention her celebratory Michael Jackson tribute song “Never Can Say Goodbye,” she sang in celebration for getting into Yale. One of my personal favorite songs that features Quinn is her Valentine’s Day mashup “Cherish/ Cherish.”
Quinn has been dealt her fair share of ups and downs, what with her multiple breakups, her pregnancy that ended in adoption, her car accident, not to mention her rebellious attitude that carried her well into Season 3. Even though Quinn prided herself on her tough girl façade, she cared. She cared so much that she gave her daughter up for adoption. Soon after her car accident, Gleeks got the chance to see a great friendship blossom between Artie and Quinn. The two performed “I’m Still Standing” in their wheelchairs. The routine was high energy and proved that Quinn would fight and would walk again. What better place to show all of your friends you can walk again than senior prom? During her duet with Santana in “Take My Breath Away,” she got up from her wheelchair with some help of Santana, shocking everyone in attendance. Quinn also cared deeply for all of her boyfriends. While she had multiple boyfriends, her duet “Lucky” with Sam was an opportunity to see her vulnerability. Although the most surprising hookup that came from Quinn was Santana. Anyone who saw this one coming, I applaud you.
I think it goes without saying that she is a character of many emotions and thoughts. With that being said, she is also a person to have as a friend. As a member of the infamous Unholy Trinity, and a surprising friend to Rachel Berry, the girl who openly stole Quinn’s boyfriend, she proved that she would always be there for her friends. When all of her friends put together some pretty amazing songs, “Love Song,” and “Come See About Me,” they proved how much she meant to them
However, thanks to Dianna Agron and her phenomenal character portrayal, fans still cheer Quinn on and love her unconditionally. It’s what Gleeks do best. Quinn may have given us our fair share of irritating moments, and plenty confusing ones, but she has also taught us many things. How to love, accept situations for what they are, and how to pick yourself up despite adversity. She could have easily quit when she got pregnant, but she fought and got into Yale. Even though she was the head Cheerio at many points, she fought like an underdog. The excitement surrounding her return to Glee
for the 100th
episode is undeniable. Her character has been sorely missed, and she is a definite addition to the grand episode. Not to mention her performance with the Unholy Trinity of “Toxic.” Luckily Gleeks won’t have to contain their excitement much longer; the 100th
episode celebration begins in a two part extravaganza Tuesday March 18th
at 8pm EST!
