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!

  • Sorry, Hun.

    umm… her show goes to broadway. You can see the pictures of the sign for it in the filming photographs in NYC.
    Definitely not April Rhodes.

    April was my first thought, and I still really do think it could be her. She was just brought back in the latest episode, introducing a new plot line with Will and drumming up his dreams of going to Broadway. We see her at one of Sue’s scheme meetings with Terry and we know that Sue’s latest plan to destroy Glee club is to get Will out and onto Broadway in April’s show. Her death would foil Sue’s plan, keep Will and Mckinley, and it could be spun to inspire Glee to perform its best at nationals.
    As for the pictures of signs advertising her show– I don’t think that their appearance proves that April won’t be the death referenced. Advertisements for shows in theater marquees, etc are put up in advance and we could assume that a. her death had not happened yet, or b. the theater either didn’t yet know or just hadn’t yet removed the signs.

  • juis

    its becky. i dont want her to die shes adorablee :) <3

  • http://twitter.com/onedirectionlvr Rachel Styles ;)

    Rachel’s mom doesn’t coach vocal adrenaline anymore. But it could keep new directions from performing or Rachel because if rachels mom does die i think Rachel might not be able to handle it and will miss it.
    idk tho :L

  • KSDG

    I think it’s Coach Beast… It make sense that the glee club are touch by her death cause, she’s the football coach of the guys of new directions. And apart of will, Emma, the Principal and Holly she’s beleives in the New Directions and it might be heart breaking for a lot of them…

    If She dies, that would suck cause i really like coach beast.

    Well because of the “major break up” they’re talking about, and it being a girl I’m guessing it would be either Quinn cuz i read she doesnt win prom queen and in the commercial for the episode “prom queen” it looked like she punched rachel (or santana but she looked short) in the face which might lead Finn to breaking up with her which might make her commit sucide, another thought was Brittany because os Santana not being honest about being a lesbian and her and Artie just broke up. My other guess would be Santana because of her struggle with being a lesbian and Brittany and it said one character would deal with loss and if one (santana or britt) died the other would be very upset. Possibly rachel but i dont think so and they said major character somewhere else and becky isnt one and niether is sue’s sister so i dont belive it would be either of them

  • guest

    okay i just started watching @ season 2 so idk who beth is. is she quinn’s daughter? and she gave her baby to rachels mom?

  • Mariana

    Beiste,Sue or Jean

  • Glynnis

    People with Down syndrome are living longer all the time and only about 50% have heart problems, but those are usually birth defects that are dealt with when they are VERY young.

  • Glynnis

    Can it be Holly? If RM can’t stand to give her up she could always just haunt the glee club…

  • BoboZbo102294

    I sorta hate how people are targeting the actors with down syndrome… did anyone say that in real life the actor is gonna die and thats why they are being cut off? I think it could be ANY of thee females except fer thee students, like it could be Finn’s mom, or Quinn’s mom, or or sue’s mommmm!!!!! i think its going to be sue’s mom, cus shes old and sue is going to regret not spending time with her, plus she’ll go crazy.

  • http://profiles.google.com/norja.simms Norja Simms

    It’s definitely Becky! They have recently cast a part for Becky’s Mom and a priest. I think that gives it away

    Youre all insane. Of course its not Quinn, Santana, Sue or Kurt. They MAKE the show. Its probably Becky.

  • aNiTaThEgLeEk

    I think it’s April!!!

  • Live4MyHappiness

    After seeing the “Rumours” episode, I think that it’s April Rhodes, as well.

    There appears to be no other reason to bring Kristin Chenoweth back for one episode this season than to setup Will to follow her to Broadway for her autobiographical musical and in turn, have her die — sending Will back to McKinley & New Directions.

    The closing shot of Will’s face at the end of “Don’t Stop” spoke volumes in terms of him following his dream.

    Of course, I won’t be happy if it’s April since I adore Kristin Chenoweth & would miss her appearances & voice on Glee, but I have a sneaking suspicion that’s it’s going to be April.

    It’s not Terri Schuester because I recently read in an interview with Jessalyn Gilsig that she’s signed for all 22 episodes next season.

  • SMILE

    i know this is out of the blue and everything but what about lauren i mean they have 12 members with kurt and it does affect a couple (puck) but i think Jean would be a better idea. The lauren thing just popped into my mind so just thought i would throw it out there

  • HAWTDAWG3

    I think it will definatly be Burt, cos a photo shows Kurt at the funeral holding a rose.

  • Tea And A Cheshire Smile

    They’re targeting those characters because they’re both not overly important to the story so they COULD die, and because Ausiello did say that it was a beloved female character, so that leaves out people like Terri.
    Becky, in particular, is pretty likely – her mum has been cast for a future episode, and Sue will attend the funeral.
    My other thought, of course, is Beiste. She, too, is a beloved character, and there have been an awful lot of rumours about how a character has been written out (presumably by the death) because the actor has been getting a bit too full of herself – that sounds rather unlikely of the other two actors.

    We also know that the death is going to really affect the glee club – so, whilst Finn’s mum could very well end up dying, it’s unlikely to be Quinn’s mum (she’s hardly beloved) or Sue’s mum (the glee club wouldn’t attend her funeral).

  • Tea And A Cheshire Smile

    who said they’re dying from illness?

  • http://profiles.google.com/tea.and.a.cheshire.smile Amanda Saunders

    They’re not breaking up anytime soon. We know they’re going to be hitting some bumps in the road – whether this happens towards the end of S2 or during S3 I do not know – but we also know that they’re in the honey moon stage at the moment, and will probably continue to be for the rest of this season.

  • Frankenteen

    its beccky jackson

  • Shannon

    That’s the first thing that popped into my head when I read that it was a female.

  • Maddie Shively

    Well after IMDB stalking I found out that Lauren is not given credit with any episodes past Prom Queen. Suicide? Hit by a bus? Killed by Quinn because she wins prom Queen? Alright, thats a MAJOR stretch but still. She is not listed as being on the show after Prom Queen and we know she HAS to be at Nationals…. Just a thought.

  • Saeglopur1971

    There is a rumor that it is going to be Holly who dies in the episode here in LA. (I work in the entertainment industry). While it is a huge secrete, and no one really knows, the rumor is that is is going to be Holly who dies. Remember it has to be someone that the Glee club really cares about… and that will affect Sue is some way. Remember Holly was a counselor, so it is possible she somehow connected with Sue, and that is why she is taking it harshly. The only other option is April. People are saying Becky.. and I while I think this would be very sad for the glee club.. it wouldn’t “affect” them too harshly. Its not the coach because she has been seen on set filming upcoming episodes, while Holly has not been seen, neither has April. Only thing with April.. it would make sense if she died cuz her and Sue were plotting pretty heavily.. and maybe she will die doing an errand for Sue causing Sue to be beguiled with guilt. Between the two.. I am going with April being the one who dies… as I think Holly is going to be saved so she can make future guest appearances.

  • Saeglopur1971

    Remember.. it has to be someone that is going to matter in a major way.. who is connected to Sue and to Glee club. Rachels mom dying may be a big thing for Rachel and get her sympathy from the other glee kids.. but it wouldn’t really affect the whole club… nor would Sue really care. Any of the parents for that matter would have the same effect.. so I am saying its not one of the parents. Its none of the glee kids as confirmed by the producers (also they have all been seen shooting scenes for future episodes) So our options now: We have Emma, Holly, Becky, April, and Coach B.

    Coach B – seen shooting upcoming scenes.. its not her.

    Emma – Seen shooting upcoming scenes, its not her

    Becky – It could be her, I just don’t think so because I don’t think her death would disrupt the Glee club… it would be sad for them, but I don’t think it would be that bad.

    Holly – I could see Glee killing her off.. and I could see some creative writing to see that she had somehow helped Sue while she was as the school.. and we all know the Glee kids LOVE her.. her death would be devastating to them.. its just… I think she loves that character.. and the producers like her.. I think they will save her for future guest appearances.

    April – Same effect on kids that Holly had.. and she is more connected with Sue than anyone. My reports are is that this not only affects the kids in a major major way.. it also affects Sue in the worst way. Remember she was plotting with April in the rumors episode. I could see some scenario where April is doing some sort of task for Sue.. and is drinking and driving and dies in the process… making Sue feel responsible for her death.. and the kids in ND being devastated due to the loss cuz they loved her.

    Im torn between April and Holly.. It would be great Drama if it was Holly… and a good way for Gweneth Paltrow to keep from being asked to go back over and over… she obviously is never going to be a permanent cast member. April… unless she was doing something specifically with the Glee case.. I am not sure how I can see Quinn, and Santana.. or some of the others really caring in April dies.. but Holly has counseled them all in some way.. imagine how sad it would be if Holly.

  • derp

    I don’t think half of the people commenting even watch the episodes because everyone keeps talking about Sam and Kurts rendezvous at the hotel but if you watched the episode you would know that it’s because Sam’s family is living there because his dad lost his job and they are broke. Kurt was giving Sam some clothes to wear and Quinn was spending time with his little sister. He said that both his parents are out every day looking for jobs so it can’t be his mom. Derp.

    They wrote it before the episode aired…

    My guesses are: Beiste, Holly, April or Becky. I thought it might be Carole or Shelby, but I am not so sure about that anymore… Shelby would be a good guess, because Jessie’s return could be connected to her death (sickness etc.). Her death would affect the whole Glee Club, because Puck and Quinn would have to rethink Beth’s situation, and Rachel would probably be too devastated to preform, which would be a huge problem for ND. The only problem with that theory is Sue… She wouldn’t really be affected, in fact, it would be “positive” for her.

  • Gleek12344321

    I think it is Becky… I heard they are casting a down syndrome boy though… so idk but it would make sense and if Jean died though, it would totally ruin sues life, shed be done and i dont think they can do anything more to ruin Kurt, hes already been bullied, his dad had a heart attack he had a few fights, he just got things straightened out in his life so i think it is Becky

    What about Rachel’s mom? That would be dramatic – and what would happen to the baby?

    I think it might be Holly Holiday. If she dies, that would destroy Will and The Glee Club. And she is A Beloved Female character.

  • Zabuza_momochi18

    its Becky :(( sadly

    OMG! i totally agree because in the glee promo, when jesse comes back, he looked upset and he was talking to rachel…
    OMG i think you are totally correct!! :)

    it cant be she was confirmed to get a boyfriend in season 3

  • Aries899

    yes its quinn’s daughter and rachels mom adopted her.

  • Shaun 1020

    I have an idea.. what if the death is April… lets say sue is forcing her to try and get Will to leave but April can’t take it so she overdoses on drugs or alcohol… that would certainly shake Wills world. ALSO! what if April and Will start a relationship at the start and thats the relationship that will end.

  • LaylaAlshimy

    I’m Thinking Its Finn’s Mom, As It Says ”
    one of the students deals with a devastating unexpected loss.
    ” On Wiki, So Becky Couldnt be It, It Might Still be Rachel’s Mom though, And That Will Cause Drama, with Beth And Quinn And All.., Might Still be Beth herself, That Would Break Quinn And Puck’s Hearts, I Just Hope Its Not Finn’s Mom, That Would Break My HeartAnd Jean Is Possible But I Don’t See How That Is Related To one Of The Students, And Quinn’s mom Is Still possible, might Too be Sam’s Mom, Because His Dad Lost His Job, Maybe Something Happened To his mom Too!!
    So its Hard To Know!!:S

  • Lealricardo93

    It Better Not Be Quinn!

  • Squinn :D

    It’ll not be Quinn… However, I have the theory that if it is Rachaels mum, then Quinn would take back custody of the child… putting too much pressure on Finn, he cant deal with it and then while supporting Rachael in her time of need, they get back together as rumored.

  • Ren

    Pretty sure it’s April Rhodes, I heard she’s getting hit by a drunk driver… Irony

  • Mddddddd Ffdgddg

    yea, but who said they aren’t? I think it’s Jean because she fits all the clues and she would defintley infect sue and she’s a mckinly teacher. anyway everyone else is blocked out because they dont fit the spoilers!!!!! so Jean????

    it’s no one in the new directions or karofsky or emma and i know it’s not carole because she’s attending nationals for sure

  • Twilight Freak_1

    i know it’s not carole because she’s the parent that’s going to nationals and i think it might becky’s mom because there was a picture that showed sue hugging a very sad becky and it also might be sue’s sister since she has down’s syndrome and people that have that can die suddenly. it would affect the new directions because sue would probably take her anger and sadness out on them poor becky might also be treated badly because sue no longer has sympathy for her

    I really think Blaine is gonna pass because he has no storyline anymore since it doesnt look like he is joining new directions and it would really affect the Glee club and especially kurt.

    and i know it says female, blaine is a homosexual, so he is i guess a female. but that just what i think
