E!’s Glee-dux: What Lies Ahead
That really did just happen.
If you haven’t yet seen tonight’s episode of Glee, stop reading now. ‘Cause something huge just went down. Like, life-threateningly huge. So is a certain long-time fan-favorite (understatement?) actor off the show for good? Here’s the scoop:
WHAT LIES AHEAD
Quinn got in a car accident. Specifically, she got hit by a truck while texting and driving. And news flash: It did not look good.
So why did this happen? And is Dianna Agron leaving Glee?
The brutally honest truth is that we do know the scoop on Quinn’s/Dianna’s fate, however, we have been asked by the Powers That Be to keep it under wraps until the show returns, because the “What Happened to Quinn?” mystery is obviously Glee‘s huge winter cliffhanger, and they want to keep the fans guessing. The show does not intend to answer what happened to Quinn until the very next episode airs, in seven weeks.
What we can tell you is that there certainly will be major repercussions of Quinn’s crash, throughout the rest of the current season. And one possibility we can rule out for you is the idea that Quinn will be dancing around the choir room in the very next episode. That is not happening, Quinn fans. Sorry.
Update, 6:42 p.m.: We’ve been given clearance to tell you that Dianna Agron will return to the Glee set in some capacity, whether it is a dream sequence, a reduced role, a flashback or a flashforward, etc. We have it on good authority that nothing has been set in stone yet as far as the fourth season of Glee —including whether Dianna will be a series regular—so say a little prayer for Miss Quinn Fabray tonight! Just don’t do it while driving…(Too soon?)
So why did the car crash happen? A source tells me the idea for a character to get into a texting-while-driving accident has been in the works ever since the Glee cast appeared on Oprah and she had them sign contracts saying they will not text while driving.
Note to “Faberry” Fans: Not only did you “Faberry” (Quinn and Rachel) shippers own our TV’s Top Couple mega-tournament (you nearly broke all of E! Online with all your votes!), you also trended #DontCutFaberry last night on Twitter (worldwide!), after hearing that a Rachel-Quinn scene shown in the promo for tonight’s episode had been cut from the actual episode. So what happened? According to a reliable source, the scene was cut “for time” (this does happen, people!) and the plan is to release it online after the episode airs. Hopefully that lessens your sting and hey, maybe you’re watching said scene right now.
Max Adler Speaks: Quinn wasn’t the only one in jeopardy tonight. Dave Karofsky attempted suicide after being outed and bullied at his high school, and trust us, Max Adler was very nervous shooting tonight’s episode. How do we know? Well, we talked to him all about it, so check back after the West Coast airing (9 p.m. PST) for our exclusive Q and A with Max.
