Jessalyn Gilsig to Return as Terri? She’ll Just Show Up

Watch with Kristin has an exclusive interview up with Glee‘s Jessalyn Gilsig in an attempt to answer the one question that’s on all our minds – is Terri gone for good?

“I still haven’t gotten my letter,” Jessalyn reveals to us, referring to her official pick-up from Fox to come back this fall. “Enough! Where’s my letter? Maybe I’ll get it in a text. I have my parking pass, so I’ll just show up.” In case you happen to be a “soulless automaton” like those kids from Vocal Adrenaline, these are jokes people, jokes! Still, Jessalyn adds on a more serious note: “I’m feeling pretty confident about it. But I always like to have that little piece of paper in the end.”

Check out more of the E! Online interview here, where Jessalyn also talks more about the upcoming season finale. And, she leaves us on this note:

“If you don’t have Sue and me [Terri], the show may as well be on the Disney Channel!”

Well, according to Jessalyn anyway. And, as strange as it is to think of Glee that way, I’d have to agree with her. I also agree with her that upcoming season storylines should still include the former Mrs. Schue – even if only in small doses. I mean, as annoying as her character was, “crazy Terri” presented tons of conflict!  Sue can’t keep after McKinley’s glee club forever. Or maybe she can….

What do you guys think? More Terri or no Terri? Think the show will be the same without her? Discuss in the comments!

    I would enjyo seeing Terri again, once and awhile. But I would hate to see them force her character into the show in all these unusual ways that aren’t really necessary. The shows needs to be open to change, new characters, and even sometimes letting go of stories.

    You’re so right, Ashley. I would also hate to see any forced storylines, just for the sake of including Terri. The last half of season 1 already feels a little forced with the themes, I wouldn’t want to see the writers fall into another trap like that. Originally I thought we would never let go of Terri – that she would always just be “the wife” in the background; I was surprised that they got rid of her so quickly. But, now that they have, I’m with you. Maybe it’s time to work on a different sort of conflict with Will.

    I like Terri ,as she is wonderfully over the top, but I think she should be a recurring character rather than a regular one.

    While Emma and Will are supposed to be the couple on the show, I find Terri a MUCH more interesting character than Emma. And agreed, it’s a little too sugary sweet – pushing on HSM corny without Terri around – hahaa. Plus, there are plenty of ways to keep her around that isn’t “forced”.

    Terri would be funny to add her in as Will goes to sheets and things to get something and they end up having to call the manager who happens to be none other than Terri
