Glee Season 4 Spoiler (Potentially): Will Someone Get Cancer?
Glee’s characters have dealt with their share of trauma over the years, between a heart attack, a car accident, and getting slapped in the face with chicken cutlets. So now will another one of them get hit with “the big c”?
E! Online is revealing that a character on some show will be getting cancer this season — although they aren’t saying which show that will be just yet. However, there are ten shows listed as possibilities, and Glee is one of the ten. Better stock up on Kleenex, just in case.
“A main character will get diagnosed with cancer, and we'll never get to see her happy and healthy again,” according to the E! story.
“It will be... gut-wrenching, mostly for the lack of resolution,” the hint continues. “But also, you know, the cancer.” We’re already sobbing.
It’s hard to know if Glee would really do this to a main character, since Glee tends to keep things a bit lighter. Plus, Burt Hummel (Mike O’Malley) is currently undergoing treatment for prostate cancer — though it’s worth noting that show creator Ryan Murphy has already confirmed he won’t die.
But if this is happening on Glee, then who might be the unlucky lady? We know that Quinn (Dianna Agron) hasn’t been featured much this season, and Dianna was previously rumored to be ready to leave the show for good. So maybe this would be a way of setting Dianna free?
Or maybe Rachel’s mom, Shelby (Idina Menzel), might have the disease, since we know she’ll be reappearing on the show later this season? (That said, Shelby's not a main character, which means she's probably safe.) Or perhaps it’s Sue (Jane Lynch), who has faced her share of health issues? Gah! Please let the answer be “nobody”!
Still, there are nine other shows that this could be about, and it would seem that 90210 would be a safe bet, since the show is heading off the air soon. We wonder if the show getting canceled would explain the “lack of resolution.”
