It is WAY too early to be crying!!

As you all know, this Thursday, Glee’s tribute to Cory Monteith
The Quarterback is set to air, but when the credits roll, that won’t be the end of the tough endeavor.

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!!

    Ryan Murphy sounds like he's saying the cast members opposed to the grief episode were somehow lesser. I understand where they're coming from, they probably just didn't want it to come off as exploitative.

    Please know that I don't mean to sound disrespectful. I am not a fan of the show Glee, but when I heard about Cory's passing I was saddened for his family and other loved ones for their loss. But I think it is time to let Cory rest in peace already. His death has been dragged out for months and while I'm sure it will take his loved ones time to move on, we don't need to drag it out for months and months in the press.

    A lot of people says that the episode inst necesary..im tottaly agree with this episode..he dies..he deserves to be remembered, he was one of the most important characters of the show, it would be very sad to forget him and make as like he just.. "gone"

    Both Ryan and Lea are taking this to the bank, they both are starting to sound like enablers…they both saw the drug problems and continues to feed the addict. All this for fame, $$$ and publicity…I dont think they'll let Cory the druggie rest in peace till every corporate sponsor pay's up….

    I hope Lea's family and friends are keeping her very close … she is on a threadmill of action, hopefully the grief will be well spent when it runs out … Stay strong girl!

    Omg I can't take it. It's going to be a full on cryfest. I die :(

    Will everyone be shooting up heroin too?

  10. How's that says – reply to this


    I'm surprised they are going to let this emotion go on for the whole season. Normally when something tragic happens on Glee they sing a song and move on then make horribly offensive jokes about it later.

    I watched all four seasons of Glee on netflix and really enjoyed Cory and the rest of the cast. They are all so talented. It really is sad. I don't want this to come off the wrong way, but I really think that after the memorial episode, they should let the Finn character, and Cory, rest. I don't think it healthy for Lea or the rest of the cast to have to draw on those emotions all season long.I'm just not sure how to feel about this. Also, after watching all of the seasons, I think that Quinn's character should definitely have been included in the memorial episode.
