Glee's Ryan Murphy Shares Lea Michele's "Deep" Involvement With Cory Montieth Tribute Episode; Reveals Rachel's Arc For The Rest Of The Season
It is WAY too early to be crying!!
According to Ryan Murphy the end of the episode isn't the end of Finn.
He talks about how Finn’s untimely death will impact Rachel the rest of the season:
“She struggles with it [the loss] all season. It’s not just done, buried and goodbye.”
So there are more emotional times throughout the season?! We’re not sure how we can handle this!!
He also says Lea Michele, being the amazingly strong person she is, was very much involved in the episode:
“She was actually deeply in it [on set] - her story kicks in during the last half. It was very brave of her to do, because there were some cast members, who we won’t name, who didn’t want to do a grief episode, didn’t want to do a memorial episode. So, Lea really put herself in the bottom of the heap and soldiered on.”
We’re sure Lea wanted to honor Cory’s memory in this episode, she even chose the song she sings. Ryan reveals:
“It was a very personal one for her and Cory. She’s ultimately the person who approved and chose that song. She wanted to do something personal. I don’t think she’ll ever share why she chose that song. It was very sad; everybody was wrecked. It was really hard.”
Listening to Make You Feel My Love always makes us tear up, especially even more now that we know how close this song is to Lea’s heart.
We’re stocking up on tissues before the episode airs on Thursday!!
