Ryan Murphy loves to keep fans guessing when it comes to Glee, and the show creator has already given us more twists and turns this season than our poor hearts can handle.
First Rachel (Lea Michele) and Finn (Cory Monteith) broke up, then Blaine (Darren Criss) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) broke up, then Emma (Jayma Mays) walked out on her wedding, and now Rachel is pregnant? How much more can we take, Ryan? Apparently, a lot more.
Turns out Mr. Murphy is gearing up for one of the most intense season finales Glee has ever seen, complete with an epic cliffhanger! As of now, the characters have been going back and forth between McKinley High and New York City, but Ryan says he'd like the show to stay in one location next season, and the cliffhanger will be the catalyst for this to happen.
"I loved going back and forth, and I think we'll always have one foot in both [NYC and McKinley High], but I would like a big chunk to follow one particular story that we're getting ready to launch at the end of this year," he tells The Hollywood Reporter at the PaleyFest Icon Awards, adding that this story will involve Rachel as well as several other characters. "It's going to be a big cliffhanger."
What’s more, it sounds like things are about to take a turn for the strange. "We're doing some weird s--- on the show, just wait," Ryan says. "I don't want to do what we've done every year; I want to do something different."
Personally, we're sort of hoping that Rachel might move back home to be with Finn, but Ryan isn't giving away any secrets. "I like conflict, and I think great romances are about creating obstacles and coming together and conquering those obstacles," he says.
"My job, much to the outrage of some fan groups, is to build obstacles, and then by the end of the series — whenever that is — hopefully have a tremendous happy ending for everybody. The show is about including everybody."
Sigh, Ryan — always so cagey! What do you think this season's cliffhanger will be?! Hit the comments and dish!
