Glee fans across the nation have been bemoaning the fact that the show has taken a month-long forced hiatus because of inconsequential things like baseball and the presidential debates—so when we saw series creator Ryan Murphy at the Golden Hearts Gala in New York, we had to ask him why he devastated fans even further with the #heartbreaking episode from a couple of weeks ago, which saw Rachel and Finn part ways. “To me that episode was really special,” Murphy told InStyle.com. “It was about this group of people who we’ve followed for three years in many ways making the transition from kids to adults. I didn’t feel it was realistic that all of them would hang on to the same high school relationships.” But will Finn and Rachel stay apart forever? “I think when we come back [from hiatus] we continue to explore those breakups, and some of those people get back together and have happy endings,” Murphy said. “Of course, some of them don’t.” Such a tease! Tune into FOX on November 8 at 9 p.m. EST to see more (or possibly less) #heartbreak!
