Quinn Fabray Must Stay and Live Another Day

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.

    Yeh they’ve done a little too much with Quinn’s character (that punk phase was reallly strange)

    I don’t mind the car accident. Glee tries so send strong messages to its viewer about the consequences to many things. Hopefully this episode convinced some viewers to stop texting/tweeting/facebooking while driving.

      I agree that it can serve as a great learning tool for the audience but for the show’s and fans’ sake, I hope they handle the storyline properly and not as a tool for Artie to just get a girlfriend- if they paralyze her that is. Thanks for commenting!

    I agree with a lot of your points. There were four other bridesmaids who could have been late and gotten into that car accident. You’re going to put Quinn back on the Cheerios only to kill her off or paralyze her??? That’s just stupid. I adore Glee but seriously, give Quinn a freaking break!

    • nrmurph · February 24, 2012

      I agree completely- it wasn’t right to be reminded of her growth and put her back on the Cheerios only to do that. As if she hadn’t already been through enough!

      My logic (although it may sound stupid) is that they can’t kill her off because if they do it would take a lot longer then 7 episodes for the characters to get over it. They arent going to be all happy when they go to nationals if Quinn just died. And if they paralyze her then that would be way to ironic and they would most likely lose a lot of viewers. I think that they will just have her break both of her legs maybe til the last episode. I don’t think they’ll kill her off.

        She’s going to end up in a wheelchair. Have a look at the songs Glee’s gonna cover this episode and you’ll see a Quinn and Artie duet. So she is gonna live…

    Having it be a dream or alternative universe is “clever writing” nowadays. Wow.

    • nrmurph · February 25, 2012

      It’d be clever for Glee’s standards. Clearly dream sequences/alternate realities are cliche and overdone, but it’d surely be better than this being real and Quinn being paralyzed or 17 year olds actually getting married.

    Wow, what an AWESOME roundup! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!Keep being the best!

    I agree. Quinn turned her whole life around. She got on the Cheerios, got accepted to Yale. and NOW the stupid Glee writers want her dead or worse, paralyzed??? This is frustrating. And I too, will so start to hate it if Quinn ends up with Artie. I mean, COME ON. I love Artie, but Quinn had plans- PLANS for her future… And she IS going to survive the crash and end up in a wheelchair. Just checked out the songs Glee’s gonna cover this episode and guess what. Quinn and Artie are gonna perform a duet. You wanna know what the song is? ‘I’m still standing’ by Elton John. So, go figure. Quinn in a wheelchair… So gonna happen.
