And, that’s a wrap for Heather Morris.
Yeah, we sure as hell didn’t know it going into the episode, but last night’s season finale of Glee meant curtains for at least one original cast member of the hit FOX show. Though Brittany’s absence was noticeable in the weeks following the shooting episode, it was even MORE crystal clear that the final episode of the season was also to be HeMo’s swan song.
Oh sure, we found out who Catfish was (hint, your guess was spot on) and we had a surprise wedding, but really, the episode was mostly about saying goodbye to Heather Morris’ character … who no one knew was even leaving the show.
But let’s get the formalities out of the way….
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD FOR THE LAST NEW EPISODE OF SEASON FOUR. YES, WE’RE HERE. TWENTY-TWO EPISODES DOWN. WRAPPING THINGS ALL UP, YET STILL MANY A CLIFFHANGER. BUT DON’T READ UNLESS YOU WANT TO KNOW THE NITTY GRITTY, THE FINER DETAILS – YOU KNOW, THE PLOT LINES! IF YOU DO, CARRY ON….

This is it, you guys!
The LAST episode of Glee we'll get before the far-too-long, torturous summer hiatus begins…which means there will be NO NEW MUSIC for MONTHS!
But before we succumb to withdrawal and the subsequent depression that comes with it, our aching heart can at least be soothed by the comfort of knowing that in the fourth season finale, All Or Nothing, our beloved friends at New Directions will be bringing the tunage HARD…some of which is even ORIGINAL music!
Before we got to that, however, ch-ch-check out Heather Morris, Jenna Uskhowitz, Becca Tobin and Alex Newell SLAYING Icona Pop's anthemic smash I Love It (above)!
But that's not all the FEROCITY New Directions brings to Regionals this year!
There's also Kevin McHale, Chord Overstreet, Samuel Larsen and Blake Jenner's take on Hall of Fame by The Script; American Idol's Jessica Sanchez getting her chance to SHINE as rival Glee club member Frida Romero during her renditions of Wings by Little Mix and DJ Zedd and the Foxes' Clarity; and of course, Melissa Benoist and Darren Criss crooning the episodes title track, written by her character Marley!
Of course, this all takes a SUPREME backseat to the incomparable Miss Lea Michele, who sends CHILLS down our spine as she DOMINATES the Celine Dion classic To Love You More during Rachel's Funny Girl CALLBACK…and you can hear it - and all the rest - AFTER THE JUMP!!!

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD FROM LAST NIGHT’S IMPORTANT EPISODE OF GLEE. DON’T READ ANY FURTHER IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN IT YET.
It’s hard to know where to begin…
For those who were expecting last night’s Glee to take an after school special approach to the very serious topic of school shootings, they were met with nearly ten solid minutes of the most harrowing and tension filled moments of the series. The show isn't the first teen dramedy to try it's hand at capturing the horror faced by students and faculty when faced with such terrifying circumstances — One Tree Hill, anyone? — but considering the episodes proximity to the tragedy at Sandy Hook, the situation hit very close to home. (Too close to home for parents in the small Connecticut town, as we reported earlier.)
But if we may say so, we thought the episode, while emotionally charged and frightfully dramatic, never stepped over the bounds of gratuitously exploiting the circumstances. Truly, we thought the storyline was handled tastefully, and just perhaps, it opened up a difficult dialogue for parents and teachers to have with their kids.
So, what exactly was the storyline? Well, as the kids all convene in their beloved Choir room for a seemingly uneventful day of singing and laughter, two shots
While we are SO excited that the three-week hiatus from Glee will FINALLY be coming to an end when a new episode, titled Shooting Star, airs this Thursday, we have a feeling that the recently-reported "unthinkable event" that is said to go down at McKinley High could have some SERIOUS ramifications on our beloved New Directions!
Why else would there be ONLY THREE new songs this week?!
GAH! Now we're all nervous and slightly scared for everyone!
Thankfully, however, we appreciate quality over quantity, and while the tune-age may be SCARCE this week, what is there manages to pack a punch!
For example, ch-ch-eck out Blake Jenner doing Elton John some serious justice with this stunning rendition of Your Song (above)!
While you're at it, give a listen to Chord Overstreet and mama-to-be Heather Morris declaring their love for each other with Extreme's More Than Words, as well as everyone in New Directions teaming up for Say by John Mayer…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Halle Berry isn't wasting any time, and apparently, neither is Heather Morris!
Just like the 46-year-old Academy Award-winning actress, our beloved Glee starlet is ALSO three months along in her first pregnancy with boyfriend Taylor Hubbell, and was spotted out for a walk with her doggie friend over the weekend…baby bump fully VISIBLE for the first time!
Ch-ch-check her out (above)!
Aww! She must be JUST starting to show!
Thank goodness production on this season of Glee is just about to wrap!
We're still very curious to see if/how this exciting development in her personal life is going to alter her character's storyline!
What do U think? Would U like to see a pregnant Brittany on Glee next season?

Awww! That's so sweet!!
We just found out that Heather Morris is having her first baybay with her longtime boyfriend Taylor Hubbell, and even though she's only three months along, her Glee costar Jessalyn Gilsig already thinks she's gonna be one badass mama.
The 41-year-old actress said:
We were so excited to find out Heather Morris is pregnant! But we've hardly met her man at all!
The Glee star has been dating Taylor Hubbell for years, and the couple have been living together since early 2012.
So what else do we know about him?
