Relax, Glee isn’t taking a trip to Cougar Town. While it’s true that series creator Ryan Murphy is plotting a major season-ending story line involving Terri and Finn, the exec insists the relationship will be strictly platonic.
“Finn gets a job at Sheets & Things,” explains Murphy of the chain store where Will’s soon-to-be ex-wife works. “He is very down on himself, and Terri realizes that she was not very supportive of her husband and she sees a lot of him in Finn.
“She met Will at 16,” he reminds us, “so she sees a way to redemption…a way to redo that relationship in a positive way [by acting] almost as Finn’s guardian angel, his fairy godmother. She gives him proper moral advice. I liked seeing Jessalyn [Gilsig] and Cory [Monteith] work together.”
So much so that Murphy says the story will “will carry into season 2.” A romance, however, is not in the cards. “I don’t want to do that,” he says. “And I don’t think our audience would go for that. We just want to keep it a friendship.”
Smart move? Or do you think Murphy should play the cougar card with these two? Sound off below! BTW, how about last night’s ratings! (Additional reporting by Carrie Bell)
