Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy has confirmed what we had already figured out — that the “happily ever after” for Rachel and Finn that Lea Michele laid out in the Cory Monteith tribute episode is how he planned to end Glee after six seasons. “Rachel was going to have become a big Broadway star, the role she was born to play,” Ryan said in his eulogy at Monteith’s July private memorial service, an excerpt of which was published by Entertainment Weekly. “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.” That is exactly what Rachel described in her tearful monologue during “The Quarterback.”
