It sounds like Kurt (Chris Colfer) rushes home to Lima the moment he hears that his step-brother has passed away. There, he, his father, and Finn’s mom can comfort each other as they try to come to terms with the truth that Finn Hudson will never be there with them again.
Also back for this emotional episode is Finn’s friend and former football coach, Shannon Beiste (Dot-Marie Jones). That same day, Dot tweeted, “First day back on Glee today ep #3 it’s beautiful, going to be a long day! Love you lil punkins!”
Glee creator Ryan Murphy has said that the show has decided to keep the cause of Finn’s death intentionally vague. We’ll know that he’s gone, but the exact circumstances of his death will remain unclear at first. Instead, the episode will focus on being a “celebration” of Finn’s life.
