‘Glee’ season 5, episode 3 preview: ‘The Quarterback,’ the Cory Monteith – Finn Hudson tributeby October 3, 2013
“The Quarterback” is the episode that a good many of “Glee” fans have been dreading, mostly because it will quite possibly smash their hearts into a million pieces. While the episode is reportedly going to be a celebration of Cory Monteith’s life along with his character of Finn Hudson, the buildup to it airing will be as emotional as they come.
It is hard to really say much about this episode that is not said in the promo below. Lea Michele’s cover of “To Make You Feel My Love” is played while you see scenes of McKinley High becoming a memorial site for one of their most-popular alumni, a man who cared deeply about everything and everyone. Even though this promo may be less than 30 seconds long, we imagine that there are still going to be plenty of tears for everyone who watches it. (We’re tearing up already on this end.)
When it comes to further details, all we can say is that the death of Finn is going to impact every single character in a different way. Some will cry about losing Finn, and some others may choose to act out in anger. It is hard to expect to see much of New York at all, given that most of the popular characters, including Kurt and Santana, are going to be back in Lima for the tragedy. As for Rachel, not much is being said, but it is fair to say that out of sympathy for her, Lea Michele is not going to appear in the majority of this hour.
