Whether or not you enjoyed watching — spoiler alert — New Directions lose the big competition for a second year in a row on Glee, there's no question that the club's journey to Nationals took a backseat to bullying, the Warblers, religion, drinking, prom and a whole lot more this season. In the end, we still got a moving duet between Rachel and Kurt on Wicked's Broadway stage, a couple of new, pretty good original songs, an "awww" moment between Kurt and Blaine, and an even bigger one between season MVPs Santana and Brittany.
Report: Jane Lynch to host the Emmy awards
And yet! While the writers managed to tie up some of their many arcs nicely — Bye Terri! Welcome back, Finchel! — we've come up with seven unsolicited suggestions to help them ease into next season based on what culminated in Tuesday's finale. In no particular order, they are:

OK, good, let's get back to what we do here. We missed you. We're glad you're back.' I love everyone over there. It was so great to see the camera operators and everyone you know and love."
A.J. Cook to return to Criminal Minds
The brief appearance — Cook's bare-legged JJ ("It was so Mrs. Robinson, right?" the actress says) cryptically accepts an offer from Rossi (Joe Mantegna) to rejoin the BAU — was only a guest spot, but the actress will return to the procedural as a regular this fall. CBS dropped her a year ago only to rehire her last month. Fans who launched a tireless campaign aimed at bringing back both Cook and Paget Brewster, who has an option to come back, are excited for Cook's return, but she says it wasn't ...

ADAM: I don't want to ruin your summer, Jessica. But I will give that privilege to David Shore, who promises that the car crash and walk on the beach was not a Vicodin-induced fever dream. "These things are real, and there will be consequences," Shore says. "You cannot drive a car through somebody's house and almost knock over your best friend without ramifications.
