“I’m so upset about it!” Lea told me of the Finchel split. “The tweets that I get about this are so intense. They’re like, ‘You have ruined the show for me! I am sitting here crying right now.'”

Many of you fans have asked if the show’s producers are aware how intensely you feel about the Finchel split and Lea lays it out for you: “I show[ed] the tweets to Ryan Murphy and [I was] like, ‘Look what you’ve done!’ And he loved it! He was like ‘Really?! Oh my God.’ I’m so sad, I love working with Cory [Monteith].”

But step away from that ledge; there is hope for you Finchel fanatics. “They’re not keeping us apart, ” Lea insists. “I still have some really awesome scenes with [Corey], both in the Super Bowl episode and in the Valentine’s Day episode …Of course, now that [Rachel] knows what they have she’s not going to let it go so easy. But some stuff goes down—oh boy, does some stuff go down. It goes down! So wait until you see that, it’s the last scene in the Super Bowl episode.”
