There it is - six seasons, all wrapped up.
This article is about the Glee finale. If you have not seen the Glee finale and intend to do so (question your life choices now), then go read something else. As for everyone else, did Ryan Murphy and co. just pull a JK Rowling on us? The Glee saga may not have been as epic as Harry Potter, but it sure ended on an equally perfect note.
But let’s start from the beginning – the beginning of the end, if you will. It was a double bill, with the second part flashing forward to the Glee club’s future, while the first... well, this is where the tears started flowing. We got to look back on Rachel, Kurt, Mercedes and Tina’s humble Glee beginnings as we flashed back to the first season – everyone was all green and excited. The obvious problem was that there was no Finn around, but once again, the writers paid dutiful homage to Cory Monteith, alluding to his character at every opportunity.
Lea Michele's Rachel Berry has definitely mellowed out over the years.

With the anniversary of Cory Monteith’s death approaching, his family and friends are speaking out about the past year without him. Monteith’s father expressed a particularly touching sentiment in an interview with ET Canada recently. "I still miss him very much and I still have the empty feeling," Joe Monteith said.
Monteith's death left his family and his girlfriend, Lea Michele, devastated last year.
The actor died last July, after overdosing on heroin and alcohol. In the interview, his father also revealed that he had not been present at Cory’s funeral. "I didn't get to go to his viewing, which would have meant a lot," he said. The reason behind Joe’s absence was that the father and son had been estranged for the past few years, although they had begun to reconnect at the time of Monteith’s death.
Joe Monteith, the father of Cory Monteith, has described his son as "a likeable young man" a year after his tragic and untimely death. Cory, who was 31 at the time of his death, was best known for his role on Glee as Finn Hudson.
It's been a year to the day since Cory Monteith's premature and tragic death. Yet Cory's memory is alive and well, with the hashtag '1YearWithoutCory' trending on Twitter and media outlets frantically compiling images of the much loved late actor.

The 'Glee' actress is not pregnant, despite what tweets sent from her account may have claimed.
Lea Michele is not pregnant, despite what a Twitter "announcement" this morning seemed to suggest. The singer and actress was the victim of a prank tweet after her account was hacked and an anonymous user pretended to be Michele announcing her pregnancy.
The actress' reps have confirmed that the tweet was a hoax written by a hacker. In a now-deleted message, the hacker wrote in a post that went live at 11:20am: "Before this gets out to the media, I would like to announce to my fans that I am pregnant #BabyBoy."
Though the message was blatantly a little off, plenty of Lea's fans were fooled into thinking it was the Glee star herself making an announcement. The hacking coincides with a similar strike on Michele's co-star Chris Colfer's account where someone wrote that he was leaving the hit musical show.

Until fairly recently, actors were considered akin to prostitutes. But, now we've overcome the taboo associated with actors, we're still shocked and appalled at the prospect of a seemingly wholesome actress dating someone who may have been a gigolo. Isn't it about time we get over it?
Lea Michele apparently knows about her new boyfriend's unusual past.

Paetz is the dude standing up with Michele in the convertible, by the way, not the video’s main love interests. Also, don’t stand up in convertibles is probably good advice to mention at this point.

"She had just come from Coachella where she was missing Cory incredibly," a source told Us Weekly. "(The video shoot) was a big party and a really therapeutic moment for her."
Did Ryan Murphy's "explosive" season finale deliver?
Last night saw the finale of the sixth season of Fox's hit musical series, Glee. Showrunner Ryan Murphy had promised an "explosive" ending and indeed gleeks of the world were handed a fair surprise or two. However, the thing that was decidedly non-explosive was the series' ratings, which equalled that of Ink Master on Spike and was dwarfed by The Deadliest Catch on Discovery.

Nevertheless, the series will plough on for one last season next fall and it looks like the troubled Fox show will keep it fresh by giving its characters a whole new set of opportunities. For example, Sam (Chord Overstreet) and Mercedes (Amber Riley) decided to call time on their relationship after Sam kissed another girl.

Another day another... 100 episodes of "Glee".
100 episodes in, the New Directions are under threat and it’s time for a Glee reunion. It’s also apparently time to dig up the oldest story lines from the original ND class, so that Ryan Murphy and Co. can show just how much the characters have not progressed since high school. The songs were good though, so we’ll let them off the hook.
The battle of the divas... has been going on since season 1.
They had to be good. Not only was this the 100th episode of the Fox show, it was also a chance to pay Finn Hudson (and, by extension, Cory Monteith) one final farewell, it mostly consisted of the cast revisiting old favorites. Two things should come to mind when you read that – Brittany’s Britney Spears hallucination extravaganza and, of course, the one and only, that age-old Glee favorite – Defying Gravity. Both were revisited in the very first fifteen minutes, of course. The Britney act was a sort of Tango-meets-Toxic-meets-burlesque mashup performed by the Unholy Trinity – Britney, Santana and a holier-than-thou Quinn, relishing the chance to get back to her misfit roots. Cool. Great. Seen it before.
