Before Jane Lynch read the Cory Monteith tribute episode on Glee, she told E! “It’s gonna be awful. It’s gonna be terrible. It has to be done but it’s gonna be awful.”
But a few hours later, the TV star congratulated the executive producers on writing such an eloquent episode:
“Just read Cory Monteith memorial episode. Most beautiful thing. Thank you,Ian Brennan.”
The episode, which will probably tape on Friday, will be the third episode of Season Five and creator Ryan Murphy says Cory’s character, Finn Hudson, will die — but his death will not be by an overdose.
Cory’s real life girlfriend, Lea Michele, helped craft the episode and grief counselors will be standing by.
