What Would Have Happened on Popular:
as announced by Ryan Murphy

The third season would have picked up in the fall of the Kennedy High gang’s senior year. A bandaged Brooke has been in a coma for four months, and awakens to find that every bone in her face was broken when Nicole’s car slammed into her. The bandages are removed, and she looks exactly the same … except that she’s now a brunette. Nicole is put on trial for attempted manslaughter, and she argues that she was driving drunk because only alcohol could erase the pain of being sexually molested by Brooke’s father. Nicole begs Brooke to tell the judge that she stepped in front of the car, which Brooke does. Turns out Harrison had chosen her over Sam at the prom, but when Sam started crying at their table, Brooke couldn’t take it and fled. Nicole clears the dad’s name, but her kindness is short-lived. She vows to rule the school. Sam and Brooke vow to do anything to stop her.

Brooke and Harrison start dating and for the first time in his life, he’s popular. In a Beverly Hills, 90210-style spoof, he starts hooking up with tons of girls and breaks Brooke’s heart. (Murphy says he and Pope were into making Sam a lesbian and a raging drunk.) Harrison is schooled in the pitfalls of popularity when Josh moves in with him and his mom. Josh and Lily had been doing fine, until she discovered his gambling addiction to … cockfighting.

Meanwhile, Mary Cherry is supposed to be sent to live in twin sister B. Ho’s old ‘hood, but accidentally ends up at a dog pound where she’s put up for adoption. B. Ho joins forces with Nicole (and a new character, an African-American student named Unique Jones), and they do drive-by shootings, until B. Ho is gunned down by an all-girl gang. A grieving Cherry Cherry arrives at the pound just in time to save Mary Cherry from etherisation … and to take her to B. Ho’s funeral, which spoofs the whole “South Central, shot-too-soon, homey thing.” After Cherry Cherry pours out some Malt 45 liquor into B. Ho’s coffin, she once again accepts Mary Cherry as her daughter. Mary Cherry joins Brooke and Sam’s group. Cherry Cherry starts teaching a daily course at the school called “Madonna 101.” (Murphy says they were trying to get Madonna to make a guest appearance.) And Unique turns so psycho that she even scares Nicole.

Nicole goes to Sam and Brooke and begs them to help her stop Unique from ruining the school. Brooke and Nicole reunite as best friends, and all is well until Kennedy High is bought and converted into a nursing home. The kids are forced to take their GREs because the old folks won’t wait for the real estate, and they all go off to college early. The screen goes black and — poof! — it’s five years later. Mary Cherry has bought Melrose Place and they all live there rent-free. The last three months of the season is spent spoofing the twentysomethings-on-their-own genre.

WHOA, Calm down Freddie Gong!

“I get driven off track by what’s expected of me, this notion of having to be perfect, but when I’m with you I just seem to know what the right thing is. I trust you. Harrison, that’s what you are to me. I finally realized that you… god, you are the right thing.”

I love this them to the power of infinity.

The only thing I shipped harder than this was their Popular alter-egos.
Circa 2001.

WHY DO I KEEP FORGETTING I MAKE THESE THINGS.

boomwizard:

I love how their friends just stand in the background all horrified and don’t even try to break them apart. Like they were actually surprised when a time-bomb went off in front of them.

Ryan Murphy, why did you not let them make beautiful lesbian babies together?
