Ryan Murphy, Glee Co-creator, confirmed how the series was supposed to end after six seasons.
According to Deadline, in the tribute episode for Cory Monteith, Lea Michele laid out how the show was to end. Rachel and Finn were to get their “happily ever after.”
“Rachel was going to have become a big Broadway star, the role she was born to play,” Murphy said at Monteith’s July private memorial service. Entertainment Weekly published an excerpt from the service. “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.”
This is the exact description of what Rachel said during her tearful monologue in “The Quarterback.”
