After the passing of Glee’s Cory Monteith it left millions of fans all around the world mourning over not only the death of the actor, but a character they had all come to love and root for, Finn Hudson. It also left many people wondering what the future held for the series, and one of its favorite couples, Finn and Rachel. Would the show continue? Would Finn and Rachel have ended up together? Show co-creator and series showrunner, Ryan Murphy completely left that decision up to Lea Michele, who in true Rachel Berry fashion, said the show must go on. Or as Finn might have said, it should go “all over the place or something.” Murphy had also said about Michele, “she’s handled this with so much humanity and grace and she’s trying to look out for 500 other people affected by him and who have mortgages to pay and families to feed.” Murphy had revealed at Paley Fest this fall that the sixth and final season would have been based around Finn and Rachel’s story. “I always knew that, I always knew how it would end. I knew that the last shot-he was in it. I knew what the last line was- She said it to him,” he said. In a recent Memoriam piece Murphy wrote for Entertainment Weekly’s year-end special issue (that you’ll definitely need a few tissues handy for), he wrote about what a great person Cory was and what he saw for Finn and Rachel’s future. “Rachel was going to have become a big Broadway star, the role she was born to play,” Murphy explained. He then added that, “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.” Not only would the two have been successful on their own, they would have found their way back to each other, though the couple might have been off and on throughout the series. “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.” If something about that sounds familiar, it’s because Rachel explained something very similar to Mr.Schue in the choir room in “The Quarterback” episode, which was a tribute to both Cory and Finn. While that might not be the vision anymore, due to Cory’s unfortunate passing, Murphy said that he does have a “good idea” of how he wants to end the beloved series. It seems that it will be “very satisfactory. And kind of in [Cory’s] honor, which I love.” Monteith will never be forgotten by the cast, crew and Gleeks all around, and it’s wonderful to see that the show is still celebrating the life and impact he made with his time here.
