After watching the last episode of Glee, I was struck by how much they seem to be wrapping up story lines. If they ended the series at Nationals, I think it would be the perfect way for the series to go out...
POSSIBLE SPOILERS IF YOU ARE NOT UP TO DATE ON ALL THE EPISODES...
At the prom, Karofsky apologised to Kurt, seemingly regretting everything he had done to make Kurt's life hell. He left the prom, confused about his sexuality, but having had something of a breakthrough with Kurt. Although Karofsky's story isn't wrapped up, he's made progress and his character has changed from where he started. This would be a good place to end his story.
Similar to Karofsky, Santana and Britney have let their fellings for each other be known. Although this too is unresolved, they've taken steps, and Santana has shown she's not only the tough girl, but has a very deep, very emotional side to her. Britney too has acknowledged that she knows she isn't the brightest student, and is deeply hurt by Arty calling her stupid. She also stood up to Arty and didn't go to prom, to be sure that he knew how she felt.
Terry leaving for Florida is another story. Will's divorce and rocky post-divorce relationship with his ex has come to an end. They seem to have reached a place where they can both talk with each other, remember the good times, and accept (more or less) how things ended. Terry has moved from a complaining irrisponsible teenager in an adult body to what seems to be a confident manager of the new branch in Miami. Again, another great place to finish.
Will and Emma's relationship has had it's ups and downs, and they are in a place where they are very close friends, who acknowledge that they both love each other, and are not sure what is going to happen down the road. Emma herself, has begun coping with her OCD and taking mediation which allows her to function more normally. Will is now chasing his dream of appearing on Broadway, even though he thinks the show may come to nothing, it is still his dream coming true. Emma is encouraging him, and they are hoping to see each other next year, but not sure if it will happen.
Most of all, in the last episode, Sue finally made a truce (a peace?) with Will and the New Directions. After the loss of her sister, she was helpless and didn't know what to do or how to feel. Despide everything she had done, the kids pulled together and gave Jean a beautiful funeral. Sue came to the realization that she has not been a good person, and offered an olive branch to Will, wishing him good luck at nationals. This would be the best way to end the conflict between Sue and Will, showing that Sue has come a long way and, despite everything, thinks of Will as a friend deep down inside.
The only thing left is the climax of winning the national competition...
This post is getting rather long, and there are a lot of other plots that have been wrapped up recently. It is almost a shame that they renewed the show for another season, as it seems to be stretching it that the actors will be playing tennagers again. They either need to introduce a lot of new blood, or end the show. I think that, had they ended it with a win at nationals, enough of the ongoing stories would have been wrapped up in a very satisfying way.
Any thoughts on this, or am I just a little crazy?
