Glee begins filming its Season 5, Episode 3 tribute episode today to Cory Monteith (Finn), and people who have read the episode’s script say that it is beautifully done but extremely sad and emotional.
According to E! Online, the episode is set in Lima, Ohio, and the episode starts right off with the news of his death. Throughout the episode, we will see the characters remembering him and celebrating his life. As has been previously revealed, we will not learn the cause of Finn’s death.
Apparently, Rachel (Lea Michele) will not appear in the episode until its final act, but her role in the episode will reportedly be quite powerful. She will also sing in the episode. And Santana (Naya Rivera) is said to have an especially memorable part, as well.
E! Online has gotten descriptions of the episode from a variety of sources who have read the script for Season 5, Episode 3. "Gut-wrenching" and "so, so good” is how one person describes it.
"You will cry from beginning to end," says a second insider. "I cried as I read it, on every page," says another source. We’re sensing a pattern here. Meanwhile, Jane Lynch (Sue) has referred to the episode’s script as the “most beautiful thing.”
We can’t wait to see the episode, especially now that the script has gotten such positive feedback. We’re a little surprised that Rachel is in so little of the episode, but perhaps that just makes her time in the episode that much more moving and effective.
