The Quarterback, which is the official (and appropriate) title of the tribute, isn't airing until October 10, but the episode synopsis was released online today.
SPOILER ALERT!!! IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO READ ABOUT THE EP. BEFORE IT AIRS, STOP READING NOW!
"In the wake of Finn’s sudden death, former members of New Directions return to McKinley to remember their fallen friend. While a stoic Mr. Schue encourages all the gleeks to “memorialize him the way we do everything – by singing about it,” some of the kids find the exercise more cathartic than others. At the Hudson-Hummel home, Kurt, Burt and Carole sort through Finn’s belongings and what begins as a somber occasion blossoms into a poignant and much needed family moment. Meanwhile, Emma grows concerned when she believes Will is so busy taking care of others that he’s not allowing himself time to grieve; Santana struggles with using her “bitch” mask to hide her fond feelings for Finn, and has a run in with Bree, McKinley’s "New Santana"; and following a heart-to-heart with Coach Beiste, Puck honors Finn’s memory by making a life-changing decision about his future."
Get the tissues ready, because we already know the tears are coming!
Let's all prepare to say good-bye to Cory, the unofficial heart of The New Directions, one last time.
