Next week is the episode most fans of Glee have been both waiting for and dreading. In July, we tragically loss one of the staple characters on Glee, fan favorite and real life boyfriend of Lea Michelle (Rachel), Cory Monteith (Fin Hudson). Cory passed away in his hotel room from an apparent drug overdose. While Cory had been open about struggling with drugs since his teenage years, he had recently completed rehab, but unfortunately, his demons ended his life prematurely. His tragic death shocked the nation and crushed Glee fans all over the world. Next Thursday, October 9th, Glee will address his death on the show.
Until now, his girlfriend, Lea Michelle has been completely quiet about his loss and has not made appearances or addressed it publicly. This will be the first time we see the cast react. Many fans are wondering how, Glee creator, Ryan Murphy chose to write this episode, as Fin did not have a drug addiction on the show. One thing is certain, it will be the most difficult to watch episode of Glee…ever. And possibly one of the most difficult to watch episodes of a scripted television show in history.
Cory Monteith’s parents chose not to have a funeral for their son. FOX studio held a private memorial for him. This is their public way of paying tribute. May Cory Monteith R.I.P.
