Ryan Murphy Releases First Look at Finn’s ‘Glee’ Goodbye


The news of Cory Monteith’s death this past summer rocked the TV world, and ‘Glee’ fans wondered what would happen to the FOX show that embedded itself into their hearts and their lives.

In August, ‘Glee’ creator Ryan Murphy revealed rather than have Monteith’s character, Finn Hudson, die from a drug overdose, like Monteith, the show would go in a different direction.

Murphy told Deadline, “At one point, we were going to have his character die after an accidental drug overdose — that was something we had considered. But we have decided that we’re not going to have him pass from that.”

He also added, “Basically, what we’re doing in the episode is we are not telling you yet, or maybe not at all, how that character died. The idea being, how somebody died is interesting and maybe morbid, but we say very early on in the episode. This episode is about a celebration of that character’s life.”

Today, Murphy tweeted the very first look at the Finn tribute episode, shown below. It reads, “The hardest word to say is ‘goodbye.’"

‘Glee’ star Kevin McHale exclusively spoke with TVLine about the episode, “There are so many incredibly well written and powerful scenes. When [the cast] got the script, we were all reading it together and we were like, ‘Did you get to that one scene.’ And when you see it everyone will know what that one scene is.”

The tribute episode will air Thursday, Oct. 10 on FOX.
