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 it’s Rachael’s mom. At the end of the promo for the finale Quinn says, we need to quit glee club. To take care of her child.. duh!

    Reading most of all your comments, It’s not any one in the glee club thats gonna die. Some people said that it would be Quinn cause she would kill her self because Finn and Rachel get back together (false). But it’s not cause for when they go to NYC, Quinn’s in the picture singing. Of course Finn and Quinn are gonna break up. Then Rachel and Finn (Fincheal Fans!!) will get back together because i saw a picture of them k-i-s-s-i-n-g. I don’t think it’s Becky thats gonna die, but honestly, I have no clue who it will be. But all I know is that there will no longer be Fuinn (Finn and Quinn). Finn will probably figure out about the slap, but all you guys who hate Quinn for doing that and how mean she has been, She is a wonderful, nice, and caring person in the real world. Also, all of you people don’t know that Lea Micheal played as Rachel and Dianna Agron played as Quinn, are best friends in real life. They are room mates. So I really like both, Rachel and Quinn, but honest i hope you all read this because don’t hate their characters. I know its just a show, that is AWESOME!! but also think about who they really are in real and that they are just acting. Sorry, but i don’t do “hate” messages even if i like them or not…….

    But i am a Fuinn fan more then a Fincheal fan, but its so much fun either way who is dating Finn because they both cause drama. I just think Fuinn together, that they look like a good couple, but then we go to Fincheal, and they are a “ok” (my opinion) but i like how Finn always knows what Rachel is thinking. I like that about both of them.

    I<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3FUINN!!!!
    i<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3FINCHEAL!!!!

    that might be so, but i looked my sources up, and it said it won’t be Becky. But idk. I always thought that too. We will just have to wait and see.

  • Anonymous

    I don’t agree because i dont think she will come back for a long long long time. Like, she just left, but that is good guess tho. I dont exactly know, but just saying.

    No. Carl is a BOY. They said that it is a female thats gonna die.

  • Guest

    no isnt she lovely is sang to brittany by artie to ask her to go to the dance in the ‘prom’ episode

  • malia84578

    I am pretty sure don’t get me wrong I might not be right but Rachel’s mom
    Shelby. That will effect Rachel and it said
    one of the kids experiences the death of a loved one not the whole group and not a teacher a kid.
    An this can also be the cause of the death in a relationship. Fin and Quins? Fin will try to be there for Rachel and quin tells fin in the promo that they need to quit glee club maybe cause he is consoling Rachel to much. It is just a guess. Also Idina Menzel the lady who plays Shelby got cast as a lead in another show that is will air 2011. Also it is rumored that Beth Quin and Pucks baby will be on soon that could be how they get their baby back.

    I think that it is April, because they just randomly added her in???

  • Anonymous

    the relationship death is obviously Quinn and Finn cause if you aren’t living in a rock you would know that in New York Rachel and Finn get back together!!!! they have an entire date through the city, including Central Park

  • Gleefreak1996

    i totaly agree with you i love Quinn it better not be her but all my friends are saying that it will be her i really hope they are wrong

  • Rwjbegers

    i think it would be rachels mom

  • Kasey

    What if its Rachels mom Shelby that dies?? remember in season 1 when she was talking to Will about not having anymore kids “there was some complictions and surgery” i mean it would make sense why she would also leave Rachel after finding her after all that time?? so she wouldnt hurt her…that would probably affect the club if it affected Rachel…. I mean in one of the promo pics rachels seen wearing a black dress crying and singing.

  • Jacjac005

    I think it could be Rachels Real mom… We havent heard anything about her this season and she has Quinns baby i think it would be a good twist

  • Elle

    That doesn’t make any sense. Blaine’s gay & Kurt’s gay, and if that made them both females, then they’d be lesbians. And so on and so forth. Being gay doesn’t change your gender. So we can rule Blaine out.

  • formeldehydi

    My guess is Finn’s mom.

  • http://profiles.google.com/jenlindsey Jen L.

    IMDB only lists the series regulars…Mike and Sam aren’t listed either. Wikipedia has all three of them listed as appearing in “Funeral” and “New York.” And that info is directly off of the Fox press releases, so it’s fairly accurate, I’m thinking. :)

  • Life101_love

    I think it is gonna be sue’s sister

  • Heyitzbailz95

    I saw a leaked picture showing Becky hugging Sue. This gives me a strong feeling that its Sue’s sister. But I read something saying that Becky’s mother has been casted. That makes me think it’s Becky’s mother. Why would they cast Becky’s mother if Sue’s sister dies? But they’re saying it’s a significant character that will change McKinley. If it’s Sue’s sister, that’ll really change the atmosphere of McKinley. It’s definetly one of the two. Either way, I’ll cry during the episode. :’[

  • RRParker45

    I think it’s Rachel’s mom too, I saw a picture of Rachel balling and Finn and Schuster comforting her, and it would put in a crazy twist cause didn’t Rachel’s mom get Quinn and Puck’s baby?

  • snorez

    I don’t think it’ll be a female

    if they really want a shocker,

    I rekon they’ll kill off Blaine.

  • Anjdor

    I think it’s probably Holly Holiday. They say it’s a female, so cut the males out. So, it’s either Jean, (Sue’s sister) or Becky Jackson, or Holly Holiday. Who else??..

  • AngelicNathen

    I think it’s probably Holly Holiday. They said it’s a female, so cut the males out. So it’s either Jean (Sue’s sister), Becky Jackson, or Holly Holiday. It’s obviously not April Rhodes, and can’t be any of the main characters or Emma, it can’t be Terri (Shue’s wife), so.. my best guess is Holly Holiday =)

    That picture was when Rachel broke her nose! :P They are comforting her because Finn hit her nose! (:

  • Hawtin459

    i think it might be Becky, as all of the glee cub were friends as her.

  • Hawtin459

    be fair, sue would become impossible to work with, and recently they have become a ‘family’ and lets be fair sue has no one else.

  • rollercoasteride

    okay so its not Becky because if you look at pictures that released by Fox becky is there so now Becky’s mom is casted so i believe it is her mom who dies

  • Anonymous

    I just saw a picture of Sue giving Becky a heartfelt HUG…sooo it’s not
    Becky…I also saw a picture of Finn and Kurt walking through a door,
    which looked like they were carrying flowers and concerned looks on their faces (not confirmed which episode it was in)….narrowing it down I’m guessing Coach Bieste

  • The Gleek

    I think its going to be becky :(
    I’m going to cry!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • The Gleek

    I dont think it will be Beiste , because she hasn’t really been in the recent episodes,and so they would be dragging her back into the story to have her killed off……

    Also, on the website it says the person is ‘one of Mckinley’s own’, so that leaves out people like Terri and Quinn’s mom….. But I agree with Tea And A Cheshire Smile about the beloved characters.

  • The Gleek Is Eva

    april is appearing in a future episode though….

  • Shira

    Why does it leave out Terri? She graduated from McKinley.

  • Alicia Freimuth

    Quinn is crying in a picture Jean and Becky don’t die. Could it be Rachels mom or Quinn and Pucks baby? Even Santana..

  • Shira

    Rachel doesn’t have a mom; she has a birth mother. I don’t think it would have the same impact as if a student actually lost a parent.

  • Shira

    More likely to get Finn away from Rachel. Duh.

  • Ashkadash

    It’s Becky Jackson. I don’t know how it’s going to happen but it’s the most likely because she’s one of McKinleys own, she is friends with Brittany which is why her death would come as a blow for her (Brittany that is).

    Plus, her mom got cast (why else would you cast the mother) for one episode. Another reason why it could be her (or why it actually IS her) is because the funeral is a very small part of the entire episode.

    I read in some earlier comments that Sue wasn’t wearing a tracksuit which is probably a sign out of respect. The Glee club would be attending the funeral because you would too when someone from your high school died now wouldn’t you.

    And to end all the other topics about various other deaths just think about the “standards”:

    - woman

    - NOT a Glee Club member

    - is friends WITH a Glee Club member

    - is NOT an adult

    - will become unexpected

    As far as I’m concerned Becky is the only one who fits the profile. And yes it is sad, but I think the writers just thought: “You know, sometimes life just sucks.” Knowing Glee though, you know that they are going to end on a positive note.

  • A.H.A9991

    So, it can’t be Jean.Because her role isn’t huge and we hardly ever see her.It can’t be Becky, not a huge role either.Not Terri or April, I think they’re signed for season 3.None of the main characters.It’s not coach Beiste, we don’t see her very often.And as someone else already stated, they’d be bringing her back just to kill her.
    Gosh who can it be?Not Emma, not Sue… the show would lose a small storyline if she died.Holly, maybe… no probably not.It’s someone from the school is what has been heard.Holy crap, who the hell dies.Oh, and for the people who are wondering.The one dying is a female.

  • Connor375

    its not finns mom like why would they do that..it has to be someone thats not very important to the series or is overly important i mean come n!! 

  • Gleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek(:

    it wont be becky..theres no way and if it is thats not very glee like and i highly doubt it, but we wont know until tuesday): 

  • gleeeeeeeeeeeeee(:

    I am seriously the biggest nerd ever about glee and i can tell u for sure it wont be becky nor april or finn’s mom.. 

  • anonymous

    No one’s mentioned Sunshine (though I guess she’s not exactly one of “McKinley’s own”, whoever said that…).  Someone said she was recently doing a fitting for the show, but how do we know it wasn’t for an outfit to be shown in a coffin?  Or, she could be a last-minute fill in (making 12) for Nationals?  For that matter, anyone notice that in spoiler pics from the funeral episode Quinn is the only one that is wearing a totally funeral inappropriate dress (unless she were the one in the coffin) and to top it off also not wearing outfit-perfect footwear, or stockings for that matter which could mean anything from being shown in a coffin to being uncomfortable and changing quickly.  She DOES appear in the pics from NYC, though it could also be flashbacks or memories haunting various characters.  Not really Glee style, but who the heck knows?

    Even Sue could be the one, though I’d have a really hard time believing that, given her role.  But really how much more can they do with her character as she’s really become more and more of a caricature rather than a character with any depth? 

    Being pictured in nice attire doesn’t necessarily make anyone safe, as people in caskets are dressed as nicely as the attenders of funerals.  Thinking about this is morbid, though, even for a TV show.

    Bottom line?  Who the heck knows and we’ll find out soon enough.

  • Kev91

    i reckon it could be terri schuster or mercedes, terri isnt that important and isnt having a lot of storylines to play, and as for mercedes, well i havent seen one picture from the upcoming New York episode during nationals with her in it however i have seen the rest of the Glee club just saying, its possible 

  • Gracee

     GUYS!! DON’T YOU SEE??!! it’s HOLLY HOLIDAY! 1.she’s Gwyneth Paltro, so they have to get her off somehow cuz she gets paid a ton for guest starring 2. she would effect the glee club cuz she is very loved there. (but i might be wrong).

  • Thesoleilduchess

    my guess is BECKY or SHELBY. Becky is connected either with Sue or ND kids. But, it doesn’t makes sense that Becky’s death will considered as a big loss for ND kids. If it is Shelby, Rachel would be devastated and will interrupt whole ND kids to win nationals since their ‘star’ is in sorrow. But, it doesn’t makes sense that Sue cares about Shelby death. So…. i think it’s Gaga’s death in the end LOL whole ND kids to win nationals since their ‘star’ is in sorrow. But, it doesn’t makes sense that Sue cares about Shelby death. So…. i think it’s Gaga’s death in the end LOL

  • Lilpokey731

     It isn’t Jean or Finn’s mom.  It is someone close to a student in the Glee club.  

  • Tdoodlebug789

    The cast said that it’s someone unexpected, and EVERYONE thinks it’s Becky… so I really don’t..  

  • Ali

     I´ve read that the whole main cast will be in season 3. So we can see Emma, Sue, Santana, Mercedes, Tina, Terri, Rachel, Quinn and Brittany are safe. They also said April and Lauren are confirmed, and there´s a picture of Sue and Becky hugging for comfort.   My bets are: 1) Becky´s mom: She´s a McKinley kid, Sue would go to the funeral and Becky´s mom was cast. so it makes sense. 2) Shelby: Rachel would be devastated, Quinn would have to deal with the raising of Beth and there is a picture somewhere of Quinn crying

  • Jay Mel

    It’s been said by the producers that it’s not Beiste, so i think it should be Jean.

    But a horrifying thing I just thot of was: Holly Holiday

    She had gone OVERSEAS for some meditation retreat, so mebbe her plane, while coming back… crashed or something. i hope not tho, she’s one of the best characters on Glee now… *cross fingers and pray that it’s not Holly* 

  • Chris

    Holly has been cast for the season finale so it’s not her. Becky is the most likely candidate as far as I can see. If you check IMDB you will see that a “Donna Jackson” has been cast for “Funeral” – As Becky’s surname is Also Jackson, this leads me to believe Donna is a family member, possibly her Mother. Becky doesn’t appear to be on the cast list… the only reason I can think of her mother being cast and her not being is that she is in fact the one that has died! Her death would also affect the Glee club (and McKinley as a whole) more than any outsider like Jean or Terri or any of the mothers because she is actually a current student with connections to people in the Glee Club & Cheerios. 

  • Lilac

    It could also be Sue’s mom. Yeah, There have already been too many deaths in the Hummel/Hudson family (especially if you count Paveratti). :)  

  • Gleek4ever

    It will probably be Becky because I read an interview saying that the cast is hiring someone to play becky’s mom. Sue would be aggravated because Becky is her closest assistant! 

  • Lolitzhaleyyy

    Know that I think of it I think that Mr. Shu’s Ex wife is going to die or Rachel’s Mom will or Finn’s mom (probably won’t be finn’s mom but it maybe but i highly doubt it) or it will be becky or it will be jean but that who it is probably going to be 1 of those 5.

  • Blah

     omg it is sooo quinns mom……. saw quinn crying in the promo and her mom returns as a guest star….. and quinn wanted to quit glee club

  • Milicakozomara

    I think it’s April Rhodes…The other spoilers said it only has a big effect on one person, that being in this case, Mr. Schu…………….Plus, they have to kill April Rhodes off the show SOMEHOW, I mean she doesn’t have a role anymore now that Schu declined her offer, I’m very confident it’s her :P If not Rachel’s mom, but then again that would affect Quinn and Puck too ;)

  • GRoup

     BECKY 

  • DAngelJ

     if its sure that its a female character, my theories are coach Beaste-> a successful coach but she is lonely no men is attracted to her kind of depressing. 2nd thought it can be Quinn she was dreaming to be prom queen she didn’t, she realised Finn still has feelings for Rachel (the fight at prom) and in the toilets she told Rachel she didnt know what to do with her life that there is no point smthng like that plus she might have got some more movie offers after ‘i am number four’

  • DAngelJ

    + and I just hope that it is not Santana
