First ,I would like to say when I found out that Finn(Cory)died I fell into piece because he was such a good person and actor even though I didn’t know him.I can tell that Rachel(Lea)is heart broken.I think that they don’t need to put out that he died.Just make a dedication episode to let his spirt know that he is loved,have him a memorial right along with the episode.I understand the pain everyone is in but don’t let his death put everone in the shadows.In and out of Glee Rachel/Lea should be happy .JUST GIVING AN OPTION THAT IN GLEE RACHEL SHOULD FORGIVE BRODY BECAUSE HE CHANGED AND SHOWS HE TRULY LOVES HE BY DOING SOMETHING REALLY ROMANTIC.That would be a dream come true.
R.I.P Cory I will always love you your gone but not forgotten
God bless you Lea to find you a second new true love

Finn doesn’t have to die of overdose, that would just be so disrespectful but some kind of death explanation would be nice…

Cory had stated publicly he wanted to use his addiction to help others. I didn’t know him personally but I believe if he already had that generous attitude about it he would want to have something good come of his death and knowing it may help someone, his death wouldn’t be in vain. I can only imagine how hard it is for the cast already and that would add to it but I also think it would be tragic to miss the opportunity to send out a warning and maybe save lives in a way that could (hopefully) never happen again. It’s already the perfect setup with him at college and partying in a way we are not used to Finn partying. There are many times it is the “first” time for a young person that ends tragically.
He was the best of the best of Glee and will be so greatly missed.

I agree COMPLETELY. To not bring light to the subject is an injustice. I think Cory would have wanted to help in any last way he could.

i think what they should do is that Mr.Shoe(the glee teacher) will wonder where Finn is. Then he wil go to his parents house and what happened, and the parents WILL say what actually happened with Finn.

No I don’t want an overdose think about how awful that would be for Lea and the rest of the cast to film, even worse than it already has been. Finn deserves to die with dignity <3

I think they should tell us how he died!!! That is kind of stupid. I am ok that he doesn’t die from drug overdose, but at least tell us SOMETHING!!!!

I don’t think they should have Finn overdose on drugs, accidentally or not, it’s not who Finn Hudson was. He may be naive and a bit stupid at times, but his character wouldn’t get into drugs, i’m pretty sure, at college with Puck or not- I think they should reveal how he dies though, so we can get closure for the character as well as Cory. And I pray Rachel doesn’t go back to Brody or Jesse, god. I didn’t know Cory personally but I feel as if I did, I feel like my hearts been ripped out of my chest. I loved him, I really did. I watched his character and him grow, through the show and interviews, and the award shows he hosted, and his tweets. I loved Monchele/Finchel and I always will. I want Rachel to be happy but I don’t want her to be with someone else. But if she is, it should be someone we all know, instead of some random character who just “appears”. I hope that Finn dies with dignity, maybe going back to the army/military to honor his dad’s legacy and getting shot, anything but overdosing to be honest. Finn was an honorary character, he deserves to die in a honorary way. RIP, Cory & Finn. I hope one day Lea/Rachel’s heart will heal. <3

I believe as others they should have Finn die of a drug overdose. He did go off to college and we did see him and Puck partying it up big time. I never met Cory but for some reason his death really hit me hard. Maybe it was because I watched them all grow on Glee, I don’t know. I know it has to be hard for the cast and especially Lea, who I did not think would be able to come back. I do hope and pray that she will set some time aside to actually grieve his death because I feel like she is being strong for the others and it won’t help her to bury her feelings. I pray for all the cast to be able to move forward as hard as it might be. This is a great show and I would hate to see it shut down.

I think the writers should have Finn die as a result of an accidental overdose. Maybe too real for the cast, but people die from overdoses. Accidental or otherwise. Let a popular show use that reality to help teach young people and old, about the consequences of using. Of having an addiction. Don’t minimize what happened to Cory. The world knows about it, anyway, don’t they?

Considering the episode is a tribute to the actor, and celebrating the character he played, does it really matter if we know how the character dies? We already know the character can no longer be, and Cory’s death is still too fresh. Besides, the character was written out of the last 2 episodes with no explanation needed.

LOL So we won’t know how Finn died? They will just make him disappear? So fans don’t deserve to say goodbye to character after 4 years? I hoped at least for funeral…

I obviously don’t know these people personally, but it broke my heart to see her cry and talk about her love for Cory. If the man i love died, I don’t know what I would do. I would be completely lost. RIP Cory.

Show how finn dies! I feel like if you don’t the story line will always be incomplete. Also its his show persona so you really should do it.

Addressing the addiction issue would have been a very tragic, but benefitual lesson for the story on Glee. People make mistakes, and addiction is a terrible illness that needs to be addressed. Cory seemed like a nice person (as I only knew of him on television and through interviews), and showing the seriousness and impact of his real-life story would do a lot more good. He deserves to have his life celebrated, but it does not change the fact that the impact of his illness cost him that life.

Glee will never be the same without Cory/Finn… I have to say it once again.. It sounds selfish but I dont want to see Rachel with another guy… it doesnt matter if the kill Finn in an overdose or a car crash.. I know he is gone! I dont feel the same with the new glee cast.. I prefer the old one.

Anyway, Im going to see the first 5 episodes of season 5… I want to know what happen with Rachel… the other stories dont call my attetion.

So sad Cory… forever in our hearts ♥

I am glad that Lea didn’t hid away and cry… But came out of this tragity stronger. I loved cory and lea together on and off the television and this is a very tragic thing that his family, friends, loved ones, fans, and the people he loved to go through. I believe that if glee doesn’t show how Finn Hutson dies the story will be incomplete and I believe that Rachel and Finn (Lea and Cory) were sole mates.

R.I.P. Cory Monteith

Forever in my heart Lea and Cory

I have mixed feelings about this. Killing Finn is the best option, but I think fans would want to know how he died.

I also have mixed feelings about this. When I heard that they were going to use drugs as a cause of death, I thought it was a good idea because they were going to use drug PSA at the end of the show to teach people about the use of drugs and it’s what killed Cory. On the other hand, Finn is not Cory and I don’t want Finn to be remembered as someone who uses drugs because Finn was not that kind of character and Cory’s life was much more important then someone with an addiction. Also, I think fans need to know how Finn died because we will always wonder if it’s not revealed. We all need some kind of closure.

that’s a cop out cory died so finn died how are the young people to learn about drugs if we cover it up. we covered up the fact if we had been there for cory after his rehab and not left him alone in Vancouver he most likely would still be alive now we are to ashamed to tell it like it is. read the hundreds of magazine comments and the readers want it handled to tell it as it is. cory/finn made a mistake so the show and cast need to deal it in reality,, to teach what drugs can do THEY KILL
