Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy always had a vision for how the groundbreaking FOX show would end, but when Cory Monteith died in July, that vision died with him.
Murphy revealed that ending to those close to the star when he eulogized Monteith at a private memorial service shortly after his death.
Now, five months after Monteith died from a heroin and alcohol overdose, he also shares it with the world.
"The ending of Glee is something I have never shared with anyone, but I always knew it," Murphy discloses in an excerpt of the eulogy just published in Entertainment Weekly. "At the end of season 6, Lea [Michele]'s Rachel was going to have become a big Broadway star, the role she was born to play. 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."
Murphy had mapped it out so clearly that he even had the last line of dialogue written in his head: "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."

Friday will mark five months since Cory Monteith's tragic death at age 31. And his girlfriend, Lea Michele, says she's still taking things one day at a time.
"I really feel like I'm still trying to figure out all of this. It's been only a few months," the singer and actress says in an interview airing Thursday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
One thing she knew she needed shortly after his death – to get back to work and the people she considers her family.

Lea Michele is finding comfort in those closest to her and in her music.
"My family has experienced a lot of loss in their life and they've been so wonderful in being there for me and giving me the strength I need," the Glee star told PEOPLE at the L'Oreal Women of Worth event on Tuesday.
Michele, 27, who will release the first single, Cannonball, off her debut album on Dec. 10, says the song that she recorded in August following the loss of her boyfriend Cory Monteith is "more than just a song to me. It completely helped to lift me up at a time where I needed it."

Chord Overstreet of Glee was so stunned by his celebrity crush, Sandra Bullock, that he was unable to introduce himself to her.
"I've actually never met her," Overstreet admitted on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Monday. "I saw her from a distance at one of these red carpet things and it was a little, a little bit like too scared to talk to her. She was that beautiful."
But when DeGeneres invited Overstreet, 24, to ask out the Gravity actress on camera, he jumped at the opportunity and pleaded for Bullock, 49, to answer him quickly.
