Cory Monteith Remembered In Beautiful Tribute
The episode displayed many different forms of emotion, showing that everyone reacts differently to death.
We knew that it was going to be a heartbreaker, but we have to really praise the cast and crew for the strength they had during filming.
“Almost everything in that episode is from the first take of every performance because the actors and the crew had a really hard time shooting it,” the creator told E!
“We wrote it because we loved Cory,” Ryan said. “So the episode is about how all the people loved Cory and find it really hard to go on with the show so to speak, but that’s the whole point of this show.”
The love absolutely came through in the emotional episode.
