Scheduled as the third episode to air when “Glee” premieres its new season this fall, the memorial episode will show how the characters deal with the news that Finn Hudson, Monteith’s character, has died. This will follow two upbeat and cheerful episodes that pay tribute to the music of The Beatles.
Lynch’s post on Twitter explains exactly what she thinks of the memorial episode:
“Just read Cory Monteith memorial episode. Most beautiful thing. Thank you, @MrRPMurphy @BFalchuk Ian Brennan.”
If scripts have gone out to the “Glee” cast, then we can expect that production of this sure-to-be-heartbreaking episode will begin soon. Exactly what will happen to the Finn character has not been released — executive producer Ryan Murphy said only that the focus would be on reactions and not on the event itself.
Cory Monteith, 31, died of a drug overdose in Vancouver on July 13. His unexpected death delayed production for the upcoming season as all those involved with “Glee” tried to deal with the loss of an actor who had been a major face of the show since its beginning.
The new season of “Glee” will premiere Thursday, Sept. 26.
