Tribute Episode To Be ‘A Celebration Of Cory’s Life’
While we’ll have the tissues ready, we know the episode will be more of a celebration, according to a source.
“The [episode] is more of a celebration of Cory’s life, and the difference he made to us and the fans of the show,” a source exclusively told HollywoodLife.com. ”As much as it will be [part of the Glee season], it also feels like a stand-alone episode.”
Harry Shum Jr., who portrays Mike Chang on the show, told HollywoodLife.com that the way the episode was written was incredibly beautiful.
“I think the writers put a beautiful script together to pay tribute and also have the essence of what Glee really is,” Harry said. “Not taking away what Glee was or is — I think that’s the most beautiful thing that they were able to put together, able to pay tribute while also keeping the aspect of what Glee is and what made it so special.”
