Glee Begins Production On "Gut-Wrenching" Cory Monteith Tribute Episode!

| Filed under: GleeLea MicheleJane LynchCory MonteithChris ColferRyan MurphyDianna AgronNaya Rivera


The cast and crew of Glee have finally begun the difficult task of saying one final goodbye to departed star, Cory Monteith.

Sources who've read the "gut-wrenching" script for his tribute episode, which is scheduled to begin production today in El Lay, reveals it will not disappoint:

"You will cry from beginning to end."

Another insider added:

"I cried as I read it, on every page."

We don't know too many spoilers, but we do know that the ep. takes place in Lima, Ohio and centers around Finn Hudson's death.

As Ryan Murphy already explained, we will not find out how the character dies, specifically, but the episode will be a celebration of his life, remembered by his fellow Gleeks.

Rachel (Lea Michele) supposedly appears in the end of the episode, and does sing a very powerful song.

We've also heard that Santana (Naya Rivera) has a memorable portion of the tribute.

Jane Lynch already spoke out about the scripts beautiful writing, so we can't wait to see it come to life on the small screen.

Full permission to cry your eyes out. This is going to be a difficult one for all.

Glee peeps, you're in our thoughts today, and everyday!

    While I know it would be difficult on the cast to do so, I'm still disappointed that they won't use his death to speak out on the very thing that took him. It may not align with his character Finn, but a death in some way shaped by drugs or alcohol would have been nice.

    Re: ThatGirl – Think about it, they want to defuse any connection of a 30 year old man, self admitted drug addict play a teen. Its about $….the network wants to stay clear away from drug use because of endorsements and commercials. Its much easier to sexualize boys and girls than the topic of drugs. Ryan Murphy knows what he's doing, gurlfriend and the networks need to capitalize asap.

    Yes. Let's give tribute to a person who abused drugs to the point of him dying. They will glamorize his life to the point of watering down drug abuse. Abusers out there will now feel that's it not so bad this abuse. They should show the seedy side of his life so these "Geeks" sorry "Gleeks" learn a real lesson.

    Maybe they should all just get stoned as usual and just film it. Its not like anyone is going to watch much more of this show.

    Ok, it's stupid. After 4 yrs with Finn I want to know what happened to him and not just see one ep. about him and forget him..

    Re: mikal
    As a 60-ish retired teacher who somehow missed 30 years of popular music, I enjoy "Glee"; then I listen to the original versions of favorite songs. I also like to watch the show's characters find their way. As a teacher, it broke my heart to see some students struggle with substance abuse, knowing that it would follow many throughout life. So I was drawn to Mr. Monteith's story—a 13-year-old who lost his way and, through hard work, seemingly found it (NOT a Hollywood actor recklessly abusing fame and money). I saw many interviews in which Mr. Monteith was so articulate, unassuming, considerate of reporters and fans, and grateful for life itself. Those who dismiss him—or anyone, for that matter—as "just another addict" (or whatever) appear to have an incomplete understanding of addiction, as well as a lack of compassion for his struggles since childhood. People disagree how "Glee" should proceed; yet, it seems to me that the show is trying hard not to be exploitative. Just my 2 cents.
