Ryan Murphy: Cory Monteith's Glee Character Would Have Become a Teacher

Originally posted 12/24/2013 11:15AM

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."

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."

When Cory Monteith died at just 31 due to a mixture of alcohol and heroin, Lea Michele turned to a famous friend for help.

"I called [Kate Hudson] and said, 'I don't know where I'm going to go because my house is swarmed [with reporters].' She was like, 'Oh, you're going to stay at my house.' Like it was nothing. No one knew I was there," Michele says in the December issue of ELLE.

"I'll never really be able to thank her, truly, for what she did for me."
