On Thursday night, Glee fans nationwide finally said goodbye to Cory Monteith. Three months after the actor also known as Finn Hudson passed away following a heroin and alcohol overdose, Glee's cast and crew came together for "The Quarterback," no doubt one of the most emotional episodes to air on television. Not just because the Glee cast was mourning the loss of Finn, but also the loss of a close friend and, in Lea Michele's case, significant other.
Indeed, based on Twitter reaction to the episode, there was not a dry eye in any house around the country. Fans watched as Michele sang "Make You Feel My Love," Naya Rivera sing "If I Die Young," and a cast rendition of "Season of Love" that would dissolve anyone in a puddle of tears.
There's no doubt Monteith will be missed on Glee — "The Quarterback" proved that his mere presence always brought a boost of heart to the series. But did Glee — a series that often revels in stunt episodes — handle Monteith's death appropriately? Based on what some of Glee's fans had to say, creator Ryan Murphy actually did a superb job. Maybe we've even started believin' in Glee again.
Check out what Twitter is saying about "The Quarterback" below, but, first, re-watch Michele's "Make You Feel My Love" and "Seasons of Love" for your morning cry.
