I think Jesse St. James should return to season five. I always wanted Rachel to be with Jesse not Finn

So here’s my idea
Finn goes to NY to visit Rachel because he misses her oh-so-much and on his way there was an ‘accident’
They don’t need to show him boarding a plane or buying a ticket just shoot a part where everyone gets the news that he died in an accident

It was heartwrenching to watch but I’m glad they are doing a tribute episode and killing his character. Imagine if they hired another actor to play him. To soap operish. Anyway, I think his death should be similar to his death in real life. Well, sort of. He was in a fraternity. A simple drinking and driving accident would probably solve this. Or perhaps an incident where he drank too much and died of alcohol poisoning. Some frat parties have those contest to see how much a person can drink until they become sick. It will be somewhat truthful.

I am eager to see what music they’ll pick to sing.

It’s so heart breaking! Personally I think it should be about Rachel getting the part she was going for. She goes to contact Finn about her exciting news on getting the part but can’t contact him. In the mean time Finn wakes up from his special night with Rachel and finding her gone. He goes to NY to find her, that’s when a tragic accident happens! Then eventually Rachel and everyone find out. Rachel gets supports from her friends and family and then the rest of the season should be on the focus of her broadway part and everyone else succeeding in their own desires all using the focus that life is short to make your dreams come true while your still capable.

I also think Rachel should become pregnant with Finns child! Making part of him truly not gone because now there will be a name sake in his honor!

Glee is going to be unbearable without Cory. I watched it for 4 seasons and last season wasn’t nearly good enough. If it were to continue, i was gonna watch it for Finchel anyway so the show is over for me. I don’t see the show surviving Finn’s death either. Cancel it after the tribute episode.
Rest in heaven Cory. We love you and will always remember you.

the ending should be like a Grand Wedding of Finn and Rachel, but then it becomes tragic… Oh no.. :'(

No the ending should be Rachel on B-way or getting a Tony. The mistake glee made was making it all about ships. Now they have a chance to revitalize Rachel. I am sad Finn will be gone though he should have celebrated her success with her.

Glee will never ever gonna be the same. To be honest, i don’t even know how to deal with that tribute episode. And i really don’t want to be taught lessons from Cory/Finn’s death. It would be so stupid to suddenly make Finn an addict and then kill him? I don’t want to see Cory dying tragically on my screen! I could barely handle his death! If they wanna teach lessons, they could use lots of people died because of an overdose. But not Finn.
Finn’s death is gonna be so tragic either way, and i don’t know how glee will return after that. If i was Ryan Murphy, i’d cancel the show after the tribute episode. It’ll be too painful to watch for me and i won’t be watching after the hiatus.

I agree. People will have just started to get over being so sad, and then it will start all over again, for fans, castmates, and esp. Lea.

Killing off Finn is the best way to honour his character and to give him closure, and to honour Cory. I don’t know how Finn should die, but I know it will be hard for the cast especially Lea and it will be hard for the fans to watch. There will be no dry eyes from anybody who is going to watch that episode. I hope Lea will be strong enough to shoot that episode and all the other episodes to follow. As for the future of glee, I don’t know. There is only 2 seasons left and Ryan Murphy can focus on the other character, perhaps a Klaine wedding or something. I know Finchel was the focus of the show, but maybe we can see Rachel finally making it big in New York, like being a star in Broadway. I don’t think we should focus on any relationship for Rachel, since it will bring back memories of her true love Finn/Cory. I hope Ryan doesn’t make season 5 the last season. I love glee and I’m starting to get used to the other character, nothing is the same as the original cast, but I still love watching it. Glee will defiantly keep Lea stronger and the cast are like a close family.

I think it all depends on whether Lea Michele will be able to carry on with the show after this devastating blow. If she does leave, I vote for the happy ever after off screen ending for Finchel that sadly their real life counterparts have been denied. But if (hopefully) she returns, I like the idea of using Finn’s death to destigmatise the disease of drug addiction so that Cory’s tragic death could serve some kind of better purpose. I also hope that after Rachel has worked through the stages of grief her character will become stronger through the ordeal; Rachel has always been written as overly dependent on Finn so it would nice to see her become more her own person. As for future romance, the only person I could see Rachel with, and I think it would be the best thing for Lea as well, is her best friend Jonathan Groff/Jesse St James. It should be done very gradually; he is cast in Funny Girl with her or enrols in NYADA, they spend most of the season overcoming past hurts and becoming good friends and then at the end of the season they could be at the stage where they both have feelings for each other but are unsure of where the other person stands – tease the fans and have them eager for Season 6. The way Glee always rushes relationships is a huge flaw of the show. It would be nice if they at least once let things happen slowly in the background.

I agree that Jesse would be a dynamite romantic partner for Rachel but develop it slowly. This show is flawed in the way relationships are rushed and then ended. Rachel and Finn were apart more than together. Curt and Blaine’s chemistry is through the roof but they were broken up before they were off the ground. What happened to the slow burn?

Its strange, and I’m still in shock, but i started re-watching the episodes before this even happened, and I really think that they should make an episode that explains about drug awareness. Yes, Finn Hudson was not shown as someone who “used” but there is that age old philosophy that even if you try it once, that can be enough to make someone die. It would be a tribute to not only his death, but the same episode could be used as a tribute to his life.

Its really difficult to say how to write in how Rachel will take it – fact is, anything like that is *never* good. Of course she will take it badly…. I think the real question is will Lea Michele want to relive her sorrow so publicly on screen. No matter how its written, any tear that Lea sheds – every fan will know its 100% real, and not staged at all. And billions of tears will be shed by fans.

Every fan feels for the cast, especially for Lea. I personally wish i could just give her the biggest hug… I lost someone a few years ago (although that was suicide, sadly), someone I really loved deeply, and since this happened, its brought up so many feelings and sadness over my own loss. Its something that never should have happened. But this person was loved so dearly by so many people, and the tribute paid to him was amazing.

And what’s more, there is now a foundation made to help men with depression. This is his legacy.

Well Cory has a legacy too, and because he was so famous, so many more people are aware of it. Drug addiction is a serious thing, and even trying it is a serious thing.

I think the writers should use his legacy as a support not just to his cast and Lea, but to support those going through the same thing! Take what his life was, and use it to benefit others through awareness. That way, his death will never be in vain.

My love to his family and friends and the cast of glee. xx

The best thing the show could do is to give Lea and Cory the happy ending they couldn’t have. It would be a lack of respect to replace him or to “kill him” on the show and find Rachel (Lea) someone else and I can’t even imagine how hard this would be for her no matter how professional she can be this is something no one should do. So the best thing is to say they ran away and got married and now live happy as they could be living their dreams, and then move on with the show and the other characters lifes and issues. Truth is no one can replace Finn or Rachel, no one, there’s no love story on the new glee that can replace their story, so the best it would be to make season 5 the last one, give a really good ending to it, the show is not even as good as it was and with this I’m sure it won’t be better at all.

I don’t think it would be disrespectful to kill the character. I think it would be cheesy to just have an offhand comment that he’s somewhere else. If they have the character die, they can have the characters give the same honor to Finn that the actors and fans give to Cory

I don’t think it would be morbid at all to have the character die, and even perhaps die in the same manner Monteith did. Glee has never shied away from controversial issues, and shouldn’t do so here. IMO the right way to do this would be to reveal that Finn had died, and to everyone’s shock, it was found that he had been hiding a substance abuse problem. Didn’t Finn’s father have a substance abuse problem and die of it? That could be used as a connection, and the show could be used to emphasize that people of all walks of life, even good people, struggle with substance abuse, often in secret, and our society needs to destigmatize substance abuse and start treating it as the illness it is.

I absolutely agree with you. I know a person who struggles with substance abuse and she is not a bad person or a druggie she has a disease and has always kept it confidential from everyone but doctors and family. The thing is, that this girl is beautiful and shy and normal and sweet. Corey was a good person he was human. But drug addiction shouldn’t be a societal stigma and glee NEVER backs down from issues that are important to our youth and society today. You are right and I hope they do just that. Heaven holds our beloved star now, and Corey will live on through the glee legacy and his music.

I think they should kill off finn, and should have an episode in tribute of cory/finn. All the original cast should return for the first few episodes when they find out finn dies.
