Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy recently revealed his original ending for the show had star Cory Monteith not died this summer.
Finn Hudson (Monteith) and Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) were originally supposed to be the main focus of Glee's final season. Murphy said that he had a final scene in mind for the series finale that would involve both Finn and Rachel.
"Rachel was going to have become a big Broadway star, the role she was born to play," Murphy told 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 series would ultimately have a happy ending with Finn and Rachel coming together in Lima, the place they grew up.
In the hypothetical final moments of the series, "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."
At the PaleyFest in October, Murphy said that he plans on writing the final scene in a way that is satisfying and honors Finn's (and Monteith's) legacy.
Glee is currently on hiatus until it returns in February 2014. The musical series will then have one more season before shutting down production.
Glee season 5 returns for its midseason premiere on Tuesday, Feb. 25 at 8 p.m. on Fox.
