A Glee Episode to Die For – Literally

3 years ago, by

May 3, 2011

Update May 11th: These spoilers were posted a week ago, visit our homepage for more spoilers, including promo trailer.

You got it, it has been confirmed for sure-for sure now that there will indeed be another Glee death on the horizon (hey, Pavarotti counts…). But I highly doubt this one will be as comical. Well I guess it wasn’t quite that comical to Kurt and the Warblers.

Matthew Morrison (Will) shed a little light on the upcoming “Funeral” episode:

“Somebody’s dying,” Morrison allegedly says in an interview with E! Online. (Oddly, we can’t find a link to the original interview on the E! site, so we’re taking this with a grain of salt.) “Obviously I’m not going to tell you who it is, but it’s no-one that you would probably expect.”

Grain of salt, maybe not. Because TV Line is also spoiling a death soon to come. But it will not be Karofsky (Ryan Murphy confirms) and it will not be Emma (where did this one even come from!?). But it will be female. I have my own speculation, what about you guys?

Don’t worry, there’s more optimistic news than death and more death (kind of a downer…Glee bosses are just lucky they snuck that Klaine kiss in sooner rather than later). More spoilers for you guys, of Glee things to come:

  • Reminder: Kristin Chenoweth is coming back as April Rhodes! Says Morrison of her return: “[Chenoweth's character] April’s coming back,” Morrison says. “I don’t know if she’s quite sobered up yet! Her all-white production of The Wiz failed on Broadway so she’s going to start doing a one-woman show that she’s getting ready to show on Broadway. So she’s asking for my help.”
  • Since Emma and Dr. Carl are kaput, it’s not looking too likely that we’ll be seeing more of John Stamos anytime soon. But you never know, he could come back for another guest (Santana’s full of schemes, I’m sure she could somehow relate it to winning back Brittany). Jayma Mays would be thrilled at least.
  • There could be some Finchel going down in New York, during Nationals. No skinny yet on the how or the why, but do we even care? Finchel!
  • There hasn’t exactly been a yes or a no on the “if they’re re-shooting the prom episode debate”, but it’s something Darren Criss says he wouldn’t be too excited about when asked if he’d heard about the re-shoot: “No, I haven’t. That would be a pain. We worked so hard. Jeez. That would suck. Let’s hope that’s not the case.” We hope not too. Because how much fun to watch does this sound: “We had a blast [shooting the prom]. Oh my god, we had these really, really long shooting days, three days in a row. And it was so much fun because it was really beautiful outside and everyone’s dressed up. That was probably the funnest shooting days we had. They were really long, but we had lots of food and lots of just games—we were playing basketball. We had a blast.”

    Hit the comments for discussion on the prom, the death…and whatever else you like!

    i think the female death will be Sue’s sister Jean..that would definetly change the atmosphere at Mckinley..i dont think it will be Finn’s mom..i dont think they would do that to him nor burt..

  • lale

    OH my HOLY crap. that makes perfect sense… about sue’s sister, i mean. i didnt even THINK of that! but seriously, thats the only plausible thing… someone random just cant have an “out-of-the-blue” heart attack or something, that’d be really un-cool of the writers. i second your opinion on it being sue’s sister

  • Intrestedinlife

    thats actually really funny (well not really considering the subject matter) because me and my friend were discussing this during homeroom and going through the possibilities and no one believed me that i thought itd be Jean.. either that or Becky, but killing off becky would be cruel =/

  • Evie7808

    i didn’t think about Sue’s sister until my sister told me she had a patient who had down syndrome who just passed on..i can’t even imagine any other female dying.

  • Jafglskj

    April. DUh.

  • July

    But why would New Directions be affected by Jean’s death? It would make more sense if it was Becky.

  • Lexi

    i think it is becky as the new directions wouldn’t be touched by jean’s death and also she isn’t on it that often.

  • Trojanguy

    Just had a thought… What if it was Terri? All her storylines seem to be wrapping up, unless her little thing in Rumours gives her something new to do. It would definitely shake things up.

  • Morgan

    i read somewhere that one of the students deals with a loss

  • SaraV.

    Its either Jean or Becky. Jean though is a more plasuble than Becky and I can see that the Glee club would come to the funeral to pay Sue a respect for her sister’s death.

  • Broadwaybabigirl

    Rachel’s Mom????? That would explain one of the students dealing with the death.

  • cabar

    i think and i could be completely wrong.. but i’m using my deductive reasoning.. in the season finale photos that are posted on here all the girls are pictured except santana.. and i mean i dont want her to die but i think its her.

  • Bluenikki17

    I read Somewhere that Jesse St. James comes back so maybe it might be rachels mom

  • Rayooom

    maybe its one of Sams parents! so that might explain why kurt was hanging out with him because maybe kurt know how to deal with an ill parents! because burt was sick! and i dont think sams gay

  • pinkiethunder77

    I think it will be Mercedes. Unfortunately, her story line has kind of tanked.

  • Angelita

    As she was in New York shooting for Nationals that’s not gonna happen.

  • Javert94

    I think it’s either going to be Sue’s sister, which would make a dramatic change in Sue and thus efect the Glee club, or it will be Santana. She is a bit of a slut, and who knows if she uses protection. I think it would have a huge efect on Brit, and Karofsky too because they were helping eatchother in the closet. I think it would make sense for either one of those two to die. I just know I’m gonna cry though, I always cry.

  • Tennislovr723

    Or maybe Burt will die. I heard the death was supposed to be of a male.

  • Tennislovr723

    And there’s a picture of her in funeral clothes. Santana is safe.

  • Tennislovr723

    Rachels mom has been gone for an entire season. Why would she be back. I’m 90% sure the death will be Burt.

  • anon

    agree to that!..i thought that i would be her.she has down’s syndrome and most of them don’t even live pass their 20′s..it’s very rare for them to live as old Sue’s sister.

  • Jennster26

    If it’s confirmed to be female… I think it might be
    Sam’s mother.. since there’s obviously something involving him and kurt (something not romantic) maybe his mother is ill. There isn’t much background info on Sam.. and I think its time some is provided!

  • Just a thought

    We know that someone is gonna sing ‘Isn’t she lovely’ and I read that someone thought that it would be about Beth, so what if Jesse is back because Rachel’s mother died, and then Quinn and Puck decides to raise Beth themselves? :)

  • I heard…

    The death is a female NOT in glee club, but the death will affect them (and not Emma apparently) Becky and Coach Beiste are my guesses because both would affect glee club and they Becky’s mom was cast (why other than death???) and Coach Beiste has supposedly signed onto another pilot for next season. ND doesnt know Jean and they dont like Terri.

  • Keep in mind

    Also, pictures show Sue attending the funeral and she’s not wearing a track suit so she cares about the funeral enough to go and be serious about it.

  • http://profiles.google.com/woowootle Antonia Frank

    I was just doing a little thinking and I think it could either be Jesse, Emma, Jean or Becky. The death of any of these people would definitely pull on the heart strings. I’m scared about who is going to die!

  • gleefan

    I think Lauren is the one that is going to die…now that Kurt is back they don’t really need her and it is not like she can sing or dance.

  • Dizzigoth

    OF COURSE THE NEW DIRECTIONS WOULD BE AFFECTED BY JEAN’S DEATH!!! imagine what sue sylvester would be like after losing the one person that keeps her heart from freezing over!

  • AArries97

    Sue is going to the funeral! They cast someone as Becky’s mom already if you check out the cast but the girl who plays Becky was NOT Cast!!!!!!!!!!! I’m pretty sure its Becky!

  • Xslider910

    i heard there will be a MAJOR break up. this might be the loss that one of the students experience.

  • Xslider910

    The death has been confirmed to be a woman.

  • Xavier

    Emma is NOT going to die. it was confirmed already

  • Xslider910

    They have pics of Lauren when they are shooting nationals in New York.

  • Tash_blue_bell

    I think it might be Becky, but not entirely sure because it’s been said that a member of glee club deals with the loss, whereas with Becky it’d be the whole club because she isn’t directly related to any one member I think.. Anyway could just be a typo or something!

  • Tash_blue_bell

    I think it might be Becky, but not entirely sure because it’s been said that a member of glee club deals with the loss, whereas with Becky it’d be the whole club because she isn’t directly related to any one member I think.. Anyway could just be a typo or something!

  • rashidAA

    what about sunshine?

  • Chlo1

    Or it could Becky, Sue’s side-kick, cause apparently they’ve cast an actress to be her mother…

  • Andy

    I have a feeling it is Sam’s mom. In the description for “Rumhors” it says “The Glee club gains a whole new respect for Sam when they discover some interesting new information about his family life.” So I think maybe Sam’s mom has cancer and she will later die. That makes the most sense because it says it affects one glee student the most. I also think that maybe the reason why Sue is showing up to the funeral is because when she hears about the death she realizes how hard she is on the glee club and how the kids have real problems, so maybe that will be a gateway for her to apologize to the glee club by showing up to the funeral. … Just my thoughts, maybe they are wrong but thats what I think.

  • Andy Reid

    that doesnt affect anyone in the glee club though

  • Billie

    i heard 4 possible people who die
    1: becky
    2: jean
    3: Burt hummel
    4: terri schuester
    i wonder if its any of them…

  • Angharadmairyder

    Especially cause Brittany copied Becky’s tests in class… makes perfect sense to me.

  • Catchbrassfox

    Not possible, she was shooting seen shooting in New York for Nationals.

  • Bradley

    It couldn’t be Jean because, I heard somewhere that it was supposed to be someone’s mother. So that would explain Becky. I could see it being her since nobody hears much of her and one of the students is supposed to be dealing with the death. Plus, Jessie is supposed to be returning so that could explain it. PLUS, nationals are creeping up on them. . .

  • Bradley

    Oh my god. That would make total sense!

  • Bradley

    Same thing with Jesse.

  • Bradley

    Wait no mevermind not Becky. Gosh I’m an idiot! I though for a moment Becky was rachel’s mother. Not sue’s little partner

  • Goqueso

    It’s not Burt. They confirmed that they would be female.

  • Goqueso

    She wouldn’t need an “out-if-the-blue” heart attack though. Jean has down syndrome, she could just die. People with down syndrome arent even suppossed to live pass the age of 50. So it couldake sense if she died. Even though I dont have my bets on her

  • harry flippin potter

    I agree that Jean is the most likely death, although it would be very sad. And it definitely would affect the Glee club, because it affects Sue. April is self-destructive and an alcoholic, so she’s likely too. I think Rachel’s mom is less likely, but it would bring Beth back into the picture, so maybe. And I highly doubt they would kill Becky. That’s very dark and not very Glee-like.

  • Mdunn

    I think it is Coach Beaste

  • jpay

    I have a feeling it might be Becky, Sue’s sister maybe? But why would glee club go to the funeral?

  • DarrenandMatt4ever

    It could be Zisis with her overweight issues – she is a prime candidate for a heart attack and now that Kurt is back – way too may Glee members

  • mike w

    It could be Schuster’s ex-wife. Her character is hardly worth the occasional boring appearance she makes.

  • Gleek10:)

    heres just athought but mabey Beth is the one that dies?
    probly not but just a quess! im thinking its going to be Sams mom!

  • Laylamays

    It is Emma becausee she is too important in Glee and it says it isnt Emma and she is my favouritee i bloodly hope nottt…..

  • Laylamays

    I ment it is NOT emma**

  • Livi8888

    or maybe sams parents are gay and thats why he was meeting up with kurt?

  • 15099

    Well i heard somewhere that the lose effected one of the glee clubers when they get their first chance in the spotlight. i am guessing Finns mum or Sams mum because they are building a story line on him and he isnt often in the spotlight. They are both female. It is supposed to be someone we know and someone unexpected which is why i think carole finns mum. soon find out i guess. I will need a box of tissues for whoever it is who dies.

  • anon

    actually people with Downs Syndrome who do not have associated heart conditions usually live a long life, and heart conditions only occur in a small number of people with downs.

  • Titchy

    I think that Becky will die!! :(

  • Titchy

    no it definatly not santana. she goes to new york with them so she will not die and its not one of the nd kids

  • http://www.facebook.com/taylor.michiels Taylor Michiels

    My friend and I spent an hour debating over who we thought it would be.
    Based on what we knew, I said it was probably Quinn’s mom or Becky. She agreed with Becky, but thought Shelby (Rachel’s mom) was also at risk.
    Jean is also an option since I’m sure Will would pull a “good person” move and make the New Directions go to her funeral since she doesn’t have a family other than Sue and her mom that’s never there.

  • gleefreek34

    it has to be sams mum cause it all fits finn and racheal saw kurt talking to sam thinking he was cheating on blaine which he wasn’t and kurt had a sick family member a while ago so he was probobly just comforting him.
    so yeah its probably sams mum

  • Ozconway

    its april! i will cry when she dies lol

  • Cordawgfrito

    Becky and Brittany are friends. In the episode wheels in season 1 it is revealed Brittany is friends with Becky and cheats of her tests in math.

  • Tea And A Cheshire Smile

    Ausiello said it was a beloved female character, which would make me think Jean, but… there was also a lot of stuff going round that the actress who played the character was getting a bit too up herself… and I can’t picture the actress that plays Jean as up herself. So… my mind instantly jumps to Beiste. It’s got to be one of the two – I can’t see it being any other character, unless it’s Finn’s mum (but I highly doubt that)

  • Tea And A Cheshire Smile

    Yeah, Ausiello said that there wouldn’t be one glee death, but two – an actually character death that’s more significant than the loss of Pav (but still, poor pavarotti D:) and the death of a relationship. No clue as to whether or not they’re in the same episode, but still.

  • Saundersa46

    wrong, female. I made sure to double check that on several sites – I would’ve been extremely displeased if there was any chance of him dying ._.

  • Saundersa46

    There seems to be a storyline involving Becky in the prom episode, but I doubt it’ll involve a death. A lot of people are thinking she’s getting a boyfriend seeing as they cast a boy of a similar age with DS for that episode.

  • Tea And A Cheshire Smile

    And, people, it’s not going to be anyone IN ND. It has been confirmed.

  • kasdjaklsdja

    gwyneth paltrow? she’s a female she’s very close to glee

  • kasdjaklsdja

    gwyneth paltrow? she’s a female she’s very close to glee

  • Caitlyn

    The other post mentions the possibility that a team might miss nationals…if Rachel’s mom died it could keep Vocal Audrenaline from competing right’?

  • http://twitter.com/ItsDeDeTweet DeDe Puckerman

    I think the person who going to die is April or Sue’s sister…..

  • http://twitter.com/ItsDeDeTweet DeDe Puckerman

    At the moment there is non great relation in Glee just Klaine…….. Can be they break up??

  • Guest

    Quinn. She loses the crown, she has self-image issues, she commits suicide.

  • Guest

    And the teaser shows her shouting at Rachel that “it’s her fault that everything happened” or something like that.
