On this week’s Grey’s Anatomy, a young man attempted suicide and was under surveillance for 72 hours and a teenage girl was smashed into by a truck while texting and driving. Oh wait, it wasn’t Grey’s Anatomy? It was Glee? Could have fooled me!
The “On My Way” episode is what I am now referring to as the final straw that may just send me on my way over to Smash. I have never felt more emotionally cheated and manipulated by a television show. A comedy should make one laugh- not cry! This episode was like eating a peanut M&M without the peanut inside. Or more accurately, eating a plain M&M that does have a peanut, which you are deathly allergic to.
The reason why Glee has stopped winning awards is because it’s not funny. It’s depressing and the writing is atrocious. No one wants to watch characters that they have become attached to do absurd things like decide to get married at 17 or worse, get in a car accident that will leave them in a wheelchair!
What Glee has done to Quinn Fabray is a pure injustice to character development. It should be illegal to have a character go from a certified bitch, to 16 and pregnant, to Prom Queen crazy, to pink punk “I want my baby back”, to doing a complete 180 as she became Rachel’s friend while preparing to go to Yale and rejoining the Cheerios all in 3 seasons! And just when you want to hug her and never let go, much like Rachel, she gets HIT BY A FREAKING TRUCK!
Yes, we all know that texting and driving is dangerous and illegal but did they have to involve Quinn when she has grown so much and was supposed to be the catalyst in the Finchel wedding breakup?! I, like fans worldwide, feel emotionally cheated. Glee has toyed with our feelings and exploited us knowing that regardless of how mad we are, that we will tune in to watch after the 7 week hiatus because we need answers. We need to know what happens to Quinn/Dianna Agron. We need to know if the Finchel wedding got called off. Many really just want to know when Faberry is going to happen and others just want to find out if Quinn winds up paralyzed, rolling around in her wheelchair for life. AND MARK MY CAPS LOCKED WORDS- I WILL STOP WATCHING IF QUINN AND ARTIE START DATING!
I just have a lot of feelings, okay? Don’t judge me, judge the writers for ruining an amazing show, potentially ruining the pure hearts of the fans, and for ruining any chance of saving the show if they do in fact paralyze Quinn.
Unless it can all be a dream. Maybe we’ll find out it was just an alternate universe to show us what could have happened if Rachel and Finn went through with the wedding. Oh right, that would be clever writing and Glee is not capable of that. Instead we’re forced to have this bitter taste in our mouths for 7 weeks. But let’s not lose all hope… Grey’s Anatomy did have an alternate reality episode 2 weeks ago.
