I’m in two minds about this one. Obviously sadness is the primary emotion, but I’m looking forward to seeing how they honour Cory and his character, Finn Hudson.
I imagine this episode is going to be beautifully haunting. I don’t doubt they’ll do a great job of the tribute, especially seeing as Lea Michele has assisted with the direction of the episode. My admiration for that woman keeps on moving up.
Seeing Cory/Finn’s photo in black & white really hurts, I for one cannot get over it. A reason I’m dreading it is because after this there is nothing more. We will ALWAYS remember him, for his good spirit, kindness, positive attitude and general goofy character…but people will be trying to move on with their lives whilst always holding Cory close to their heart and it’s the moving on that’s the hardest part. It doesn’t feel real at all. It doesn’t feel like we should be mourning the loss of a 31-year old actor who still had so much to give to this world, both artistically and through the way he would inspire so many.
RIP Cory Monteith. I hope this tribute is as a beautiful as the man you turned out to be ❤
