glee cory monteith death drugs cautionary tale finn hudson lea michele ryan murphy

This is so heartbreaking, but so touching at the same time!

Since Cory Monteith's tragic and untimely death, the folks behind Glee have been tasked with the near-impossible challenge of writing out his iconic character, Finn Hudson, in a fitting way that also makes narrative sense.

As it turned out, a grief-stricken Lea Michele had ideas of her own.

She actually approached series creator Ryan Murphy with advice on broaching the delicate character write-out (which will be tackled in episode three of the new season.)

A source close to the show revealed:

"Lea wants [that episode] to reflect the truth, to warn people what can happen."

Aww! It's impossible for most of us to even comprehend simultaneously losing a friend, lover, and colleague, let alone to drugs and at such a young age!!!

Clearly the sensational young starlet hopes no one else ever has to experience the pain she's going through, and that's why she's all for turning Finn's death into a cautionary tale.

What an amazingly resilient young woman Lea has grown up to be! We're beyond impressed!

Glee's new season begins September 26th.

    I think it will be an important message to the young viewers, even if it is a difficult situation something good could be come out of this

    Cautionary tales or messages on their own do not work. The message which needs to be sent is how to deal with addiction using a harm reduction approach. This cannot be explained in a simple sentence, but it is not a cautionary message approach which has proven to be useless in dealing with addictions. Any message that emphasizes fear, does in fact, reinforce drug use.

    You better be sure you know the facts before you put this on Lea. Name your sources or it's not true. Perez, just sit down.

    I know I have made it known on other post she is not alone and there is widows going through this every day. But I got to go away for a couple days and when I was thinking of my husband, I thought I can smile again.. Its been 5 months.. For her to go back to work where she will be reminded of him EVERYDAY!! I give her mad props.

    Home Gurl was going out with a drug addict…what did her ghetto ass expect, get over it perez this is not Romeo and Juliette…pls stop making it look romantic.
    Pls reserve the word brave for parents who send their kids to the military….Lea is a self absorbed over paid actress.

    Despite all of the negative comments towards Lea and Cory on these threads, I find the situation to be heart breaking, I can't imagine losing someone so close to me and at such a young age. Lea is an incredibly strong person and I am in complete awe of her right now. <3

    What's her suggestion: "Just Say No To Drugs"? A lot of good that did.

    She should write a book. She's so inspiring!

    That's a stupid idea!! The Facts of Life in the 80's did a special ep on that, and people are still dying from drugs. Let's move on and make his character move in with his aunt in another city like they did with Crissy on Three's Company!!

    Will she make them include the stupidity that was drinking with someone who suffers from addiction, but only to the point where they can handle it (which clearly they couldn't).

    This girl has a BIG NOSE…bet if she was to do blow, she'd ingest a freeway in one snort….

    I like that they are giving Finn a final goodbye, but what i dont understand is Finn's character never used drugs — it wasnt even hinted at. so it doesnt really make sense to have him try it once and then kill him off for it? doesnt sit right

    Re: hum – I dont really think moving on is an option yet. She needs time. I think its rude you saying that its only been like a month not 10 years or something.
