    I can’t believe Santana, Quinn and Brittany had zero lines. Literally, they didn’t say ONE word between them. They could have been in the choir room when Will did his ukele song. They could have said goodbye to Mercedes when she had her farewell number. They could have been watching Rachel win her Tony and said a few words then (like Kitty did). They could have been given SOMETHING to do. But all they get is literally a second each of screen time at the end. WTF.

    If that’s not proof of some kind of behind the scenes drama, then I don’t know what is.

    This.
    The fact that the show made time for other random characters, and shoehorned Blaine into the 2009 episode, made it very clear that there was a clear effort to keep Rivera, Agron OUT of this.

    The 2009 episode was a fun idea, it was sort of sweet but in reality it didn’t add much to anything. I saw it as proof that they needed a nice nostalgia moment to close up the series and fill up time since a general storyline for the season didn’t really exist. Nothing happened here that was really necessary and it made no sense to not have the other girls in it, most notably Diana Agron.

    I wasn’t going to complain about Agron since she’s been out of this show forever and a clear enemy of Ryan Murphy since she wasn’t in The Quarterback, so why be surprised now?. But considering she showed up earlier, she could’ve been saved for the 2009 episode instead of having her in the first few episodes. By comparison the Rivera/Morris fans can’t really complain seeing that they had a very big storyline and big enough presence throughout the season. But to not give them a single line in the finale is just ridiculous when you realise, again, that Will Schuester’s ex wife was there.

    Yeah, I get that argument that Rivera and Morris had such a big episode earlier in the season, but my issue is that Santana was such a massive part of this show. She became a bigger part of the season every single season, and by the time, season 5 rolled around she was a co-lead with Michele. The big Santana plot in season 5 was her trying to find her career. It annoyed me that it was just dropped in season 6 and it was all about her getting back together with Brittany. So to have that be the final thing of Santana feels like a cheat. And I don’t care that she got a big showcase in episode 8. She’s a massive character for the show, and it’s the series finale. She deserves a moment. It’s INSANE that she was onscreen for maybe 5 seconds.

    the shitty way that Dianna Agron was treated (being given no better screentime than “The Glee Project” contestants) was tragic and inexplicible. Brittany and Santana got their big marriage episode, so I was less upset for Heather Morris and Naya Rivera (though no one awards Rivera for the heavy lifting that she did to help keep season 5 afloat in NYC scenes, which is unfortunate). Agron was one of the originals who had soooo many plot lines with Finn, Rachel, Puck, Santana, Brittany, etc. I think I saw more of Karofsky (what the hell was he doing in the last song?), Unique, Ryder, the former dreaded kid, and Jake (did anyone miss awful actress Melissa Benoist? Of course not) than I did of Quinn. 

    Yeah, Dianna was a blonde extra in the final number. Rivera and Agron deserved better.

    I think you can notice Agron because of the dress she’s wearing, and I swear that if Santana and Brittany weren’t coming down those stairs people might have blinked and missed them too.
    I totally agree that Santana saved this show plenty of times as Sue did after they fixed that character that got sort of ruined around season 3 or 4.

    But my point was that at least she was “around”. Her storyline with Brittany wasn’t a one episode thing, it lasted long enough this season. Quinn had nothing.
    Even that tiny rich girl that once joined the Glee club because of her money or something like that was featured at the wedding, basically got a 5 second closeup and was left for a nice shot by herself in the middle of the stage for like a second during the final number.

    And a big YES to the comments about Santana’s storyline dying after the whole Lea Michele vs Naya Rivera thing during the summer or whenever that happened. To have this character challenge Rachel during the Funny Girl storyline and to have her come to New York to become something only to drop it all this season and not even mention what becomes of her or what are her plans is ridiculous.

    Great post about the finale and the series as a whole, Atypical. Well said on many counts there.

    I know some disagree, but I thought the finale as a whole was just beautiful. As a fan who’s been watching this show all along and never got to a point where I was calling for its cancellation (even when I was criticizing it for ridiculous decisions and boring new characters), I could hardly have asked for more. The only complaint I have is the lack of Santana and Brittany in any significant way in the flash-forward. Quinn and Dianna Agron were not a regular part of this show for the second half of its existence. It doesn’t strike me as awful that she got the same treatment as the season four and five New Directions kids. Santana, on the other hand, remained an important part of the show into this final season, and it would have been nice to at least know what she and Brittany were up to in 2020.

    When I saw that they were doing a 2009 flashback episode, I didn’t know what purpose it could serve, especially the awkward writing around Finn not being there. But the episode was a lovely extension of the pilot, and a great reminder of where these characters were before showing us where they soon will be. Refocusing on the original group was very nice. It was a great surprise seeing Emma have such a big role. Yes, that last hour was a lot of extreme things, some quite ridiculous and outlandish, but it felt right. Maybe it wasn’t earned in the traditional sense of a show’s characters earning their big moments, but I think the fans earned it for sticking with the show even when it was a mess. At the end of the day, I still really care about these characters and wanted them to have a happy ending, to see their dreams come true. The scope and tone of this were perfect.

    As far as Emmys go, I agree with the crowd. The best chances are likely Jane Lynch, Paris Barclay’s direction of 2009, and maybe Darren Criss’s original song This Time, which I thought was very fitting. Was Naya Rivera in less than half the episodes this season? Seems like a long shot, but it would be sweet to see her get a guest actress nomination. Lea Michele has been great all season, and I felt she was excellent in the finale, but the chances of her getting any Emmy attention seem incredibly slim.

    Farewell Glee! Thanks for the memories.

    Well, it’s done! The finale was good, and the 2009 episode was perfection! I cried like a baby in the rendition of DSB. I think the finale for some characters was too much (like Mercedes, duh), but having Rachel carrying Klaine’s child when she wins her first Tony was so beautiful, she had to have this moment. I know some people just don’t like Michele, but it was her rendition of Maybe this Time that got me into this show, and I’ve been a fan since then. I think her voice is amazing, and her acting is pretty good, I don’t like the fact that she never got any award for the show as I believe she had the best role since ever and is the best actor during the run of the show. I love Rivera and Lynch, but Michele is my choice for the MVP of the series.

    I do get the love for Agron (I don’t have), but she was not part of Glee for such a long time, I hate that Santana didn’t even said a line in the series finale, because she was just a force in this show, but Agron? Not at all.

    I don’t think Barclay will be left out for his direction of ”2009”, and I believe that Lynch has a pretty good shot to a farewell nom.

    Goodbye, Glee. I kinda of loved the ride we had together.

    Although I liked the series finale episodes as a whole, the most glarring problems to me were the omissions of major characters and not enough explination for some who were included.

    In particular, it was glarring that Mark Salling, Naya Rivera, Heather Morris and most especially Diana Argon were not given any  impactful scenes during the final two episodes.   I suppose one could argue that Brittany and Santana’s story was finished once they got married, but there is frankly no excuse for not including Puck and Quinn in some meaningful way in the final hour.  Given how important they were to the early seasons, it would have been meaningful to include them in the flashforward.    I know Puck was given a small scene in the 2009 episode, but that wasn’t enough, we got no real closure for Quinn or Puck, we don’t know if they ever got together or not and we’ve learned NOTHING about her life at Harvard. 

    I am also confused as to why Terri Schuster suddenly showed up at the dedication of the audiotorium to Finn. Her presence was not explained? Unless I missed something? She kind of just showed up for no reason.

    Those are all very stong picks! I think that will help Jane Lynch a whole lot if voters actually watch. I think that will also definitely get Paris another nomination for directing 2009.

    Interesting that Fox did not send out screeners of this (or 24) though, like they did for many of their other shows, including stuff like New Girl that does not really have a chance anymore.  I guess that they incorrectly consider it no more of a serious Emmy player than Bones.

    But Glee has been at least nominated for something its entire run. Yeah is has steadily dropped to one last year. I think Paris is at least a safe bet
