When they announced that it would be the final season of Glee, it became real that we would finally be saying goodbye to characters that had been a part of our lives for the past six years. We figured that we’d have the whole season to say goodbye to our favorite characters. It looks like, however, we’ve seen the last of Quinn Fabray in episode three.

Dianna Agron confirmed at Sundance this week that she will NOT be back to film any more episodes this season due to prior commitments.

This is bittersweet for me because I’m happy to see Agron moving on to bigger and better things, especially after seeing the two episodes she was featured in this season.

After seeing Glee continuously tear down her character; there was still a part of me hoping she would get the proper send-off she deserved. Instead Glee ended for Quinn Fabray with fans left wondering what’s going on in Quinn’s life since she’s been away. All we were left knowing was that she was still with Puck, and that was really it. Despite that, I’m not going to remember Quinn for the terrible storyline she was given in the final season, I’m choosing to remember Quinn as the girl who made mistakes, but learned from them. Ultimately, she became a truly beautiful person inside and out.

I want to say how sad it is for myself and other fans of Quinn to know she won’t be coming back. I can’t even imagine how sad Agron must feel to know that the Glee chapter of her life is over.

“They’re almost done… It’s hard because I’m not there for like the last moments, which is really difficult…They’re like family, they always will be and, you know, such a beautiful part of my life,” Agron said in an interview with Access Hollywood this week at Sundance, where she’s promoting her new film, Zipper.

It’s the end of an era for Agron. While she won’t be portraying Quinn anymore, she will have memories to last a lifetime, and a few mementos from set that include her Cheerio uniform and cross necklace. In addition to those items, she will also have the gratitude of myself and many others who thank her for the work that she’s done as Quinn Fabray. I had no idea who Dianna Agron was before Glee.  

Thanks to Glee, I now know about one of the most inspirational, kind, and inside and out beautiful ladies I’ve ever seen in Dianna Agron.

Now with that I say: Thank You, Dianna.

Thank you for the memories, and making us fall in love with your amazing character, Quinn Fabray.
