We were all greatly moved by Glee's touching tribute to Finn (Cory Monteith) with Season 5, Episode 3: "The Quarterback." And with Glee preparing to celebrate its 100th episode, it appears that the show plans to remember Finn with a heartfelt gesture.
A major plot point in "The Quarterback" involved several of the show's characters wanting to own Finn's letterman jacket. And in Season 5, Episode 12: "100," another piece of Finn's clothing will apparently be central to the story.
On January 17, a member of Glee's costume department, Roric Ruegsegger, posted a photo of Finn's football jersey hanging in the halls of McKinley. From his caption, we learn that Finn's football jersey will be on display in the locker room.
It's certainly tough to see Finn's jersey here and be reminded that Cory really is gone for good. Still, it's very sweet that the show has chosen to honor Cory and Finn in this way.
It's especially fitting that there is some reminder of Finn for the 100th episode, given that so many of the show's cast members are returning, including his ex-girlfriend, Quinn (Dianna Agron), and his best friend, Puck (Mark Salling).
The 100th episode definitely sounds like it will be a melancholic one, as glee club is rumored to be disbanding for good in the episode. We expect to shed plenty of tears when it airs in March.
