It seems like such a daunting task for ‘Glee’ to pay tribute to Cory Monteith, who left this world way too soon, in a way that makes everyone happy. However, a source close to productions tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively how they plan on remembering the 31-year-old actor.
Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy recently revealed that the third episode in season five will be a tribute to Cory Monteith, following his sad and sudden death on July 13. Ryan said they’re currently writing the episode, where Finn will die, and they’re being cautious because it “has to be done very carefully and with a lot of taste and really making sure that it’s a tribute to Cory.” While Ryan failed to elaborate on much more than that, a source close to production gave HollywoodLife.com an exclusive first glimpse at the tribute episode.
