‘Glee’ season 4 spoilers: Cory Monteith’s (even larger) role

Thanks to the promo for the November 8 episode of “Glee” released a little bit earlier in the month, we already knew that Cory Monteith’s character of Finn Hudson was going to be taking on a pretty important role for New Directions in the wake of Will’s decision to head to Washington; however, what we did not realize was just how important of a role it was going to be.

In addition to being the man behind the successful production of “Grease,” Jane Lynch tells E! News that we are literally going to see Finn take the reigns in leading New Directions for at least a few weeks while Will is away. Given what we already knew, this could have been a foregone conclusion to some. However, we do find it interesting that he is going to be in part “leading” a group of people that includes two people (in Tina and Artie) who were actually part of New Directions long before he was. Is he going to have the confidence to pull this off? Finn was not exactly hitting home runs in moving back to Lima after failures in the Army and in his relationship with Rachel, and even with the club he often questioned everything from his talent to his ability to dance during performances.

As for whether or not Will’s journey to Washington is going to involve Emma, that is still to be seen. However, Jayma Mays has been used sparingly thus far this season, and we would be rather sad if she is not around for a while holding down the fort with Matthew Morrison away.

What do you think about Finn trying to lead New Directions for a while? Be sure to share some more of your thoughts with a comment below!
