Wow!! Should we all have seen this coming all along?!
However, could they have been plotting the 22-year-old's sudden 1D exodus for a while??

Glee's tribute episode to Cory Monteith, which will feature the main characters dealing with the untimely death of Finn, will also see some familiar faces from the show's past and recurring characters!
In addition, Dot-Marie Jones who plays Coach Beiste, Mike O'Malley who portrays Burt Hummel, and of course, Romy Rosemont who will have the heartbreaking job of playing Carole Hudson-Hummel, Finn's mother.
Meanwhile, Mathew Morrison has dished that filming the episode has understandably been "incredibly hard" for everyone:
"We've mourned Cory, but now we're mourning Finn. So it's kind of like two people in that one person."
It seems fitting that members of the Glee family past and present will get to mourn both a wonderful actor and character in what has been described as an episode that "will make you cry from beginning to end."
Our hearts continue to go out to everyone working on Glee. We can't imagine how tough and extremely personal this episode has been to film.
