How are they unfinished? Will's obviously not in love with her anymore. JMO


Yep her purpose was served on the show. Though honestly this was perfectly done, its SO much better that they did this than drag her into another storyline next season where she is only used in 5 episodes.

Jessalyn has many career opportunities. smile.gif

Her time on Glee is over.

Plus she is going to Miami which is a callback to Nip/Tuck. She also got her dream, manager at Sheets and Things.

It was good that they end Terri in a good way. Tell's us that after the whole season 1 baby drama, she ended in a good way by being the Manager of her job.

Not going to lie here, I'm not shedding any tears over this. Yes, Jessalyn Gilsig is a great actress, but Terri annoyed me from the beginning and the Werri scenes are usually those I fast forward when I rewatch F13 episodes (like the house buying stuff in "Showmance"). She had about 12 minutes of screen time between "Hell-O" and "Original Song". She really has no purpose at all on the show any more and the League of Doom was an epic failure to begin with. Nice to give her some sort of closure, but letting her go is the main thing. I appreciate this.

It doesn't look like things are finished, at least not in her eyes. I'm sure she'll be back next season which I'm all for since I love Terri.

I cried more at Terri leaving than at any other part of the episode. Does that make me a bad person? tongue.gif

Although it's arguable that Terri has served her purpose on the show, I'd still like to see her return as a guest star once or twice. Ultimately it came down to RIB for messing Jessalyn/Terri about and barely using her. If they wanted to they could have made her a relevant, regular character.

It was heartbreaking! They could've done so much with her character and Jessalyn is such a great actress. I think RIB wrapped her character well, but could've done it so much better. The way she never really got a happy ending (besides managing sheets n things) that I thought she'd get with Dustin. What happened to when FInn and Puck worked there? And her helping Finn?

I'm sure they'll bring her back. It's sad how horrible they treated her character though

Since they obviously had no idea what to do with her anymore, I'm fine with it. I think I'll miss her, though.

This

Plus she has her own indie series she is starring and producing in, not a lot of time left for glee.

Things are finished, she just did not like that Will told her they were not meant to be. Plus seeing him and Emma again after she asked if she would see him around and getting no response back was a cue that its truly over.

So she has left the series, she is no longer a series regular and she has been written out.

Which is great, because now Jessalyn can finally be allowed to work on other projects.

I'm glad they're letting her go, honestly. It was a good send off (she looked so stunning as well) and I'm sure she'll have no trouble finding other work.

The most important source right now is the press release for the next episode where she is no longer listed as a series regular; she has always been listed so far, although she was only in 6 episodes this season (B/B, The Substitute, AVGC, NON, Rumours, Funeral).
http://www.gleeforum...ase-t20779.html

I'm sure Jessalyn is going to talk about this in interviews soon.

The source is from fox itself. The she is no longer listed as a series regular on the press releases which she has always hen in even in the episodes she has not appeared oin. Another reason she is gone is because Jane Lynch will also not appear in the finale however she is still listed ion the press release. This was bound to happen and this is much better than dragging her into next season and giving her only five episodes.this was for the best and she got closure and it dream of becoming a manager. A nice bonus they through in was that sue was foot to Miami which was a callback to nip/tuk.

She was wasted this season, but I'm glad she got a proper send off. Glee is losing one of their best actors with Jessalyn.

I watch for Lea, only, but Gilsig is THE best actor on Glee and a far better comedienne than Jane Lynch. From another board:

For me, Terri's goodbye to Will was the most heartbreaking moment of the episode - once we got past the whole ridiculous 'Libya and plane tickets' plot. Her half-sincere, half-hopeful attempt at apologizing to Will, her pride in moving to Miami and dropping the 'assistant' in her title, the awkwardness of their hug, the pitiful 'I'll see you around', her swift almost angry exit after Will’s insouciant and oblivious rejection; it got to me.
Jessalyn Gilsig won't get the praise she deserves for this scene in part because her character is generally badly written and quite despised. It’s a damn shame. It was superbly acted in an understated way. While Will may declare to Emma that ‘at last, everything is okay’ with his ex-wife, we know it is not true, at least not for Terri.
We get a small glimpse at Terri’s plight made all the more pitiful by her feigned optimism and Will’s obliviousness (and he has perfect right not to care anymore). Glee is at his best when it hints at sadness and steers from pretentiousness. It does it flawlessly in this scene. As Terri leaves for good (I cross my fingers), she does not get closure. On the contrary, her path to redemption is not spick-and-span and her attempt at moving on is a failure. The anger, the egoism and the inability to find peace we see in season 1 are still lurking, though in a much subdued, subtler and, ultimately, sadder manner. Terri may strive to set things right and she may be sincere in her efforts, but in the end, she is still incapable of it.
