Glee Says Goodbye To Major Cast Members, Twitter ReactsBy: Chad Sweely - May 23, 2012
Last night (Tuesday, May 22nd) marked the season finale of Glee’s third season. With this finale, it presented a major milestone within the development of the major characters of the Glee show … graduation. Those who had graduated during the finale were major cast members who the show had revolved around so much within these past three seasons, showing their development from how they started to where they are now.
The list of characters that graduated during Glee’s season three finale have been listed below:
- Rachel Berry (played by Lea Michelle)
- Finn Hudson (played by Cory Monteith)
- Quinn Fabray (played by Dianna Agron)
- Mercedes John (played by Amber Riley)
- Noah Puckerman (played by Mark Salling)
- Santana Lopez (played by Naya Rivera)
- Mike Chang (played by Harry Shum, Jr.)
- Kurt Hummel (played by Chris Colfer)
As you can see, that is a big list of characters that will not be present in the upcoming seasons of Glee, and many of these characters were favorites by many. This will also give other characters of the show a chance to rise for favoritism as well.
One of the great and nostalgic scenes of the season finale (provided below) was when Kurt’s father on the show (Burt Hummel) reenacted the a viral scene from (I think) season one, where Kurt portrayed Beyonce performing “Single Ladies.” Long-time Glee watchers will remember the original scene.
The scene that received the most attention during the episode was Rachel Berry’s unexpected train ride to New York. This was a big event for her role, because she was one of the popular characters of the three seasons.
Even though Rachel’s character has left for New York, it looks like we will still be seeing more of her in seasons to come as mentioned in Lea Michelle’s tweet…
The Twitter community has been active in reacting to the show’s season finale, and I have provided some of their reactions below.
I just felt more emotions for the Glee finale than I did in any of my past relationships.
