As Glee celebrates 100 episodes, the end game is rapidly approaching.The Fox musical heads home from L.A. with this week’s 100th episode after New Directions’ second-place finish at Nationals to pay tribute to the glee club that helped its members — past and present — find themselves. With Sue (Jane Lynch) poised to end New Directions once and for all, current and former members of Mr. Schue’s (Matthew Morrison) glee club will return to the choir room to say farewell. Morrison told The Hollywood Reporter during a visit to the show’s Hollywood set for the 100th episode celebration that the hour is bittersweet.”[New Directions] came in second place at Nationals and the deal was we had to come in first. It’s the end of the glee club, which is an end of an era. I still remember the first scene we ever shot for Glee for the pilot. It was me and Cory Monteith and it was a scene where I accused him of having weed in his locker. Doing ‘Don’t Stop Believin’ ‘ here today and he’s not here, that’s a full circle moment. That saying is so true: the show must go on and we’ve really banned together. It’s been tough but it’s been real.”THR hit the Glee set and quizzed the cast to find out what one thing they’d like to see for their on-screen counterparts before the Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk dramedy heads for New York and bids farewell after next year’s sixth and final season.Lynch: The actress, who also hosts NBC’s Hollywood Game Night, wants the snarky McKinley High principal to get serious. “I’d love to have her do something serious in the way the kids do, where she sings a song because she can find no other way to express herself than in song. Sue hasn’t had one of those.”Morrison (Will): The original cast member says Glee has already featured the one thing at the top of his Bucket List. ” ‘Make ‘Em Laugh’ was my Bucket List. Getting to do some classic songs like Fred Astaire and Gene Kelley did was a dream come true. If I could have written a show for myself, this would have been it. I’ve gotten to use all the stuff I’ve been training my whole life to do. It’s been amazing.”

TV Guide: Tuesday’s episode marks the 100th episode of Glee (8/7c, Fox), but some of the show’s cast members are emotional for a very different reason. “It’s the end of an era,” Matthew Morrison says.
[…] Because of the loss of star Cory Monteith in July, performing the Journey classic, as well as the celebration for the show’s 100-episode milestone, was also a bittersweet moment for many of the show’s longtime cast members. “Just doing this song here today and he’s not here, that’s kind of a full circle moment,” Morrison says. “But that saying is so true, ‘The show must go on,’ and we’ve really kind of banded together. It’s been tough, but it’s been real.”[…]That same uncertainty is echoed by original stars, McKinley High stalwarts Mr. Schue and Coach Sue (Jane Lynch). One is busy prepping for a baby and the other has her hands full as principal, but Morrison remains optimistic about their futures on the series. “I can’t see them not using myself or Jane for the whole rest of the show, but we’ll see what happens,” he says. “I honestly don’t know.”
