  • Stop it with the new characters. I get that they need new people in the choir room and Rachel inevitably has to meet new people in NY, but could they freakin’ finish the storylines of their existing characters first? Where the hell is Dave? They use him for a PSA and then he vanishes- did he even graduate? Did he learn to accept himself? Good writers can incorporate new characters and old characters in a logical, plot-driven way. Why can’t Glee hire good writers?

  • I guess there is no room for Damian McGinty? He WON the season and should be back! Rory was awesome.

  • Honestly, they can do whatever they want with Rachel, Finn and their interests, but please, please leave Brittana and Klaine together… But give them decent storylines… That’s what most fans are demanding…

    • Most fans? You mean the Internet ones. Honestly, Brittana and Klaine need the same treatment as Finn and Rachel. They need to break up and explore new things and people! I seriously doubt Glee would have 4 endgame couples (Wemma, Finchel, Brittana and Klaine), that’s lame and BORING. I’m sure when the dust clears only Wemma and Finchel will be left standing, well at least in the eyes of RIB.

  • I was just assuming Rachel would be with Quinn in season 4?

    • Well that was a dumb assumption.

  • Getting tired of hearing about new characters. Of course, some of them are needed, but the show also needs to bring back the characters who haven’t been closed. Like Dave, the boy who tried to kill himself and was then completely forgotten. When are they going to show us what happened to him?

  • Also note: Dean Geyer was a Top 3 finalist on Australian Idol years ago, before joining soap Neighbours.

  • An Aussie in Glee you had me at Hello.

    • As an aside, I expect they’ll make him do a US accent. Dean Geyer was born in South Africa so he doesn’t have the usual Australian dialect. However he’s hot however he sounds.

  • Cast some female characters already. Since season 2, males like Blaine & Sam have since become good addition to New Directions but for girls, they got Zizes and Sugar, who both can’t sing and are not permanent fixtures of ND. Please, please. Cause the girls left in ND now are just not good enough; only Tina and Brittany left. I mean, what the hell.

  • I’m done with Glee. The whole “follow everyone” idea feels like That Guy That Shows Up At All The School Parties For Years After Graduation. He, and the show, should move on.

    New characters, new stories. Kurt, Rachel, Finn, Quinn, et al — their stories are done, told, finished.

  • Oh for goodness’ sake. The main reason I was excited for season 4 was we were going to be rid of Michele’s obnoxious whining and wailing, and now they’re going to focus half the bloody show on it? So annoying.

  • Totally agree finn is the only one for rachel :)
