Seriouslyâ€”after a season of uneven plotlines where she went all punk-rock and tried to steal back her baby, Quinn had finally turned things around. She got accepted into Yale, Sue Sylvester let her back on the Cheerios, and she told Rachel she supported her and wanted to be a bridesmaid at her and Finn’s quickie wedding. [tagbox tag="Glee"]
But there were also some anvil-sized pieces of foreshadowing in the episode: For one, when talking about Karofsky’s attempted suicide, Quinn remarks that she could never see things getting that bad for her that she’d actually kill herself. And the last time we see her — before the car crash, that is — she’s dressed in her Cheerios uniform, looking like season 1 Quinn even though we know she’s so much older and wiser. It’s like the Grey’s AnatomyÂ where George dies, where we see him walking through Seattle Grace dressed in uniform. This is how TV kills people off!
It would be awful and yet so calculated for Quinn to die, after she got to make peace with everyone and be the only glee kid who has a clear shot out of Lima. Plus, way to incorporate the ripped-from-the-headlines topic of texting while driving.
If you’d like to sniffle your way through the rest of the day:
