    Yeah she said funding for glee club would be slashed if they didn't repeat as champions. They came in 2nd so she followed through.

    Thanks for the replies.
    I think I may have even seen the episode where she threatened that, but I guess I didn't realize that this time her threats were for real. And I stopped watching before the axe actually came down.

    The Red Wedding approach does have its merits, though. I can think of a few of the new students I would like to know will never appear again on the show, even as guests in New York. Though I did kind of like Marley and Sugar....

    There were a couple of time skips in the second half of this season. After Artie, Tina, et al. graduated (which took place in 2013 - remember, they finished second at 2013 Show Choir Nationals), they jumped forward a few months (so they could show Artie already in film school), and then there was another jump forward to April 2014 (so they didn't have to bother showing Rachel in previews for Funny Girl). Marley, Kitty, et al. would be just about ready to graduate when Season 5 ended.

    I think they'll get as many members of the cast (from all seasons) together for the final episode, similar to how Fame ended; they'll probably finish with a massive version of "Don't Stop Believing."

    again? That's how they ended things after Glee Club ended. Really, I think that should have been the end of the whole series right there.

    Maybe the show will end on a sad note. Rachel is bankruptcy from being sued into oblivion by the Fanny Girl producers. Maybe the last scene of the show will be her and Will sitting in a bar...

    I read that Ryan Murphy said he won't say much, but the very final scene of the show will be between Rachel and Mr. Schuester

    Casting Spoiler...

    Chris Colfer
    has been let go from the show, citing "personal issues."

    I'm no longer watching, and I'm still rather shocked by this. (You can read this news on TV Line, and probably most other press outlets covering TV.)

    Now, the news comes from this actor's Twitter feed, and there's a possibility that the account was hacked... but I'd guess that TV Line would have confirmed the news with the actor's publicity, so who knows?

    Edit: and as I guessed, the Twitter account was hacked. Never mind...

    Glee producer 20th Century Fox TV issued this statement: “We’ve been alerted that Chris Colfer’s Twitter account has been hacked. Rumors of his dismissal from Glee could not be further from the truth. We love Chris and look forward to working with him again this season.”

    Talk about the "rush to be first" exemplified. Astonishing that no one thought to call his manager before drafting breathless articles on the development. :rolleyes:

    Agreed. I just figured that a fairly reputable website like TV Line, staffed with veteran reporters, would have gone to the actor's publicists before basing an entire story on a single tweet.

    I don't think there are any reputable news sources anymore. Even cnn displays tweets during breaking stories.

    Way behind but still watching. Just watched Cory's tribute episode from early Season 5 last night. Wow, that was hard. I have never sat through something so sad before...

    Here are the "announced" spoilers (and a little speculation) for the final season:
    According to Ryan Murphy, the show is going back to McKinley High, and five new high school characters have been announced. One thing that isn't clear is, how much time has passed since the end of Season 5. (Based on the events of the last few episodes of Season 5, all of the New Directions members that we know of - Marley, Kitty, Unique, etc. - will have graduated by now. Of course, Brittany was on the "five-year plan," so anything's possible.

    The speculation: what are they going to do with Rachel? My guess is, her planned TV series fell through, and with nowhere else to go (and Sue presumably gone - probably hosting a game show in her mansion or something), she ends up becoming the new coach of New Directions, the same way Will resurrected it in the first episode.
