“Glee’s” Cory Monteith tribute episode is nearing, and we have information for fans of “Glee” and Monteith.
The official press release for the episode is brief, reading only, “The McKinley High family, present and past, join together to remember and celebrate the life of Finn Hudson in the all-new "The Quarterback" episode of GLEE.”
SpoilerTV has a longer synopsis for the episode, reading, “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.”
“The Quarterback” will air on Thursday, October 10 and 9pm EST.
Monteith’s off- and on-screen girlfriend, Lea Michele, will appear in the episode and sing.
Some original “Glee” cast members will return as guest stars, including Jayma Mays as Emma Pillsbury, Mark Salling as Noah "Puck" Puckerman, Harry Shum Jr. as Mike Chang, Dot Marie Jones as Coach Beiste, Mike O'Malley as Burt Hummel and Romy Rosemont as Carole Hudson-Hummel.
“Glee” creator Ryan Murphy shared a photo promo for the episode on Twitter. The black-and-white photo shows a close-up of Monteith’s face with the caption, “The hardest word to say is ‘goodbye.’”
“Glee First Look,” Murphy tweeted with the photo.
