    As a person who doesn’t even watch Glee, I’m kinda disappointed by by this, because it means I’ll probably never hear the other verses to “Trouty Mouth.” :(

    Wtf???!!!!! I’m glad Darren got made a series regular, I think he is great but Harry over Chord?? Are you serious Ryan Murphy! Chord has actually one of the best male voices on the show and his character could have seriously developed next season and we could have actually seen Mercedes have a boyfriend to start the season off with. I absolutely love Glee but seriously WTF.

    I also feel really bad for him considering the cast is still on freaking tour… ugh Ryan Murphy ugh

    They created a sad, but beautiful, story for Sam, we met his little siblings, fell more in love with and now they CUT HIM OUT?
    Seriously? Sam and Mike Chang are the ONLY guys who are good to the girls… and Sam was good to Kurt in a way no one else was!
    Chord is just so sweet, all the fans love him, the Glee cast loves him… he has the most adorable bromance with Mark!

    Ryan Murphy is making a big mistake. I am now looking less forward to watching season 3.

    Chord isn’t very talented at all and his comedic timing sucks. Darren has more charisma and is more enjoyable to watch.

    @: They NEVER give Mercedes a proper storyline. They embarass her here and there with the tatter tots episode and her love life..but they never evolve anything.

    Noooooo! I’m gonna miss Sam and all his impressions and Avatar quotes! :(

    Courtney Says:

    Whether Darren is a fabulous actor or not — which by the way I don’t see Darren or Chord ranking over each other in acting, they’re just as good at the other and neither of them are amazing. Although they BOTH are better than Corey — I will not be angry over Ryan Murphy keeping Darren OVER Chord. Darren’s musical talent gives him the right to be on the show regardless and he can act. Now the actor who plays Mike Chang…he can just go. He’s a talented dancer, but his moves are repetitive at this point and he can’t act nor sing. Chord should’ve been kept over HIM, but let’s not start a Darren/Chord war.

    WHY? He is one of the best guy characters on the show. What about Samcedes? If he leaves, I will refuse to watch Glee. That’s that.

  11. 36
    Courtney Says:

    Ummm…Piper…did you watch GLEE before he got there or did you just start watching FOR him? Because if he’s leaving, why would that make you stop watching? He might have had scheduling conflicts and they couldn’t work it out which is why he’s not fired, he’s just not a regular. If you stop watching and he comes back for a few episodes – you’ll miss him.

    At least Dianna is staying. I wish they wud stop giving her so many bad stuffs happening to her. Hope a new guy will sweep her off her feet.

    it’s because he can’t dance. have you ever noticed they never put the camera on him in the dance sequences and if it’s on him, it’s for a brief second or two. both darren and harry dance really well.

    He’s better off getting out now, Glee is old news. I would have gotten rid ofthat shorty Darren! He doesn’t sound good live that’s for sure.

    Nicole Says:

    No I am not ready for Chord to go. Ryan Murphy has been really pissing me off a lot about the 3rd season.You just don’t put Sam in relationship with Mercedes and then get rid of Sam. Ugggh. And also I read that they are possibly bringing back Matt Rutherford. But then I am also at the same time happy Harry Shum Jr is gonna be a regualar and gonna have an actual story line.

    Taylor Says:

    As happy as I am about Darren becoming a series regular…I am sad to see Chord go! He was one of my favorites and getting rid of him is such a stupid mistake. Why couldn’t they get rid of Ashley Fink?! I like her and all but her character does nothing! Honestly, Chris is her best friend and I think that’s probably the reason she’s still on there and the only way I see Darren as a series regular is that he must be leaving Dalton and going to McKinley next season.

    Alex Says:

    Okay, Ryan Murphy, I’m really starting to dislike you. First, you break up my Fabrevans, then you create Samcedes, and now you get rid of my favorite guy character. That’s three strikes. I’m probably not gonna watch glee anymore. I love Chord, and I hope he does great with his solo album and stuff now. I was hoping so badly for Fabrevans to end up as endgame but that won’t happen anymore. Glee will never be the same, I hope the writers know that. My heart is broken. So, thanks Ryan Murphy, thanks a lot.

    I’m soo upset thts chord is not coming back for season 3 he was my fav last season, I luv his character sam…im gonna miss him I hope he’ll make apperences

    Krys Says:

    Well, the thing about getting rid of Darren, is that

    A) That would be devastating…

    B) Ryan’s already said that he had a lot in store for the Klaine relationship…

    C) No Blaine means no ties to any of the Warblers anymore either…

    Don’t get me wrong though. I’m very sad to see Chord leaving. I was excited to see Samcedes! I swear, I was giggling to myself so much on the last episode, thinking about what a cute couple they are!!!

    Oh, and some leftover giggles from the Klaine ‘I love you’s, but… Anyway… my best wishes to Chord. :)

    It’s official NEVER WATCHING GLEE AGAIN I hope they know that they just lost a big fan

    ilovenaya Says:

    This is not fair to Chord. Instead I actually find this ridiculous. Sam’s storyline last year was good, I must say. He falls in love but then have to lose the girl cuz she cheated on him for her ex boyfriend. He even gave her a promise ring. And promise is a really big word. If he were to leave, he’ll be breaking that promise. Is that the kind of message glee wants the viewers to remember? I was looking forward to Sam’s development as a character after having a rough year in season 2 but I am devastated now that he is leaving. Leaving glee would only leave his character in the midst of developing. His storyline of being cheated was actually relatable to teens today and I bet we all wanted to see how he’d overcome this but I guess there’s no hope.

    For Darren and Harry, I’m happy for you but I don’t think I’ll enjoy watching glee after knowing Chord is leaving.
    For the writers of glee, I hope you’re happy with your ridiculous decision.

    J Says:

    @: I know! I was wondering the same thing. This show is notorious for not finishing up story lines as well as inconsistency, though. Glee used to be a good show but now these writers are just kind of ruining it. This isn’t the first and won’t be the last disappointment we’ll see.
