"We made that decision and I involved Chris and Lea and they thought that was a good idea," Murphy said, adding he's yet to talk to Monteith. "They both trust the writing and trust me and felt that it would be great to have an open and closed experience for them to go out while they were on top.”

This is simply "true to life," Murphy said.

It would be nice to see gLee in college or to see gLee the after years or something like that I will not watch Glee after all the main people are gone. I' going to miss all my Fav's but I guess everyone has to graduate sometime. :'(
