    I feel like Chord being made as a guest isn’t really thought through. I mean, they just stuck his character in a “secret relationship” with Mercedes and now he’s just gonna be like, k peace. I DON’T GET IT. I liked him as an addition to the Glee club and as a regular we can only assume he won’t bei in it anymore.

    Congratulations to Harry though. We always saw him in the glee club so I guess it’s only right that he becomes a regular. :)

    Congratulations to Darren toooo. In my opinion, he is a stand out performer. Him & the Warblers have done some of my favourite songs from the past season. I do wish that rather than getting rid of the Warblers and just keeping Darren as a regular, they would work something out to still have the Warblers hang around every so often.

    But I guess we can’t do much about any of it. I don’t really understand Ryan Murphy and the direction he puts his characters in. It just feels like sometimes the stories just don’t flow throughout the season.

    First of all. he has to put Puck and Lauren together?! ( No offence ) And then he has to break up my favorite couple ( Quinn and Sam ) Because there ” To Perfect ” What the heck?! Isn’t that the point?? There PERFECT for each other. and then he pared up Samcedeies or however you spell it?!?!?! Now he is cutting Sam off?!?!?!!?! UGH!!! I mean if your gonna cut off anybody, cut off Darrin. I still LOVE Darrin but make HIM the guest star, he doesnt even go to McKinley!!! I was looking froward to seeing Sam and Quinn get back together in Season 3 :(!!! This show is Good and everything, but why do this?!?!?!! Going to the worst possible conclusions! Gosh Darnet! I hope Ryan Murphy will see ALL the mistakes he has made, and fix ALL of them!!!! and take chord back <3!!!!! — Maddie

    They barely gave him a chance… So not fair, I hope his time on Glee has given him enough fanbase to come out with an album or two cause I’d love to hear his own music.

    Really? What a strange decision. Has the producer ever seen Darren Criss perform live? I’ve seen him sing on two different talk shows, and quite frankly, his voice wouldn’t win a competition on it’s own without the help of mixers and backup singers. Hopefully they’ll bring Chord back when the others graduate.

    NO THIS CAN’T BE HAPPENING!!!
    Sam was like the best character on Glee. He was a mix between dorky and cute. How can they get rid of him!?!

    They actually had a storyline going for him, and what about Sam and Mercedes!? Though I don’t ship them, I want to see what happens. Plus, I want him to get back with Quinn, whatever happened to the promise ring?! So many questions left unanswered!

    I love Glee, but I don’t think the show would be as good without the original cast and Chord/Sam on the show.

    I’m happy for Harry and Darren, but I want my Sammy on the show! :,(

    glad chord is out, no offense to him.

    his character was useless but it wasn’t chord’s fault, it was the writers. they’re just finally doing the right thing. i do feel bad for the character of mercedes but i don’t think sam was good enough for her anyway.

    Sad? No. Devastated? Most defiantly!!! :( I just may give up glee because of this as much as I love the show

    chaz Says:

    Thats to bad that he is not returning as a regular, but since we did learned his family had no where to live since I think his dad lost his job(I think that what happened) then that will probably be the way the write him out by moving to another city where his dad get a new job.
