The last two episodes of Glee have been upbeat, but that’s going to change on Thursday.
Glee debuted the trailer for next week’s memorial episode for Cory Monteith/Finn, and it looks ... sad.
“[The episode] was very difficult to shoot,” creator Ryan Murphy said. “Those actors and the crew really loved Cory. They loved Cory. …He was the most kind, the most generous, never a bad word for anybody. so I think what you will see in the episode is what really happened. Almost everything in that episode is from the first take of every performance. The actors and crew had a really hard time shooting it. I’ve never seen a crew where you can’t continue shooting it because they left the room sobbing. It was very hard. I struggled working on it because what you’re seeing is not just what people felt about Finn but Cory.”
“When you write something like that there’s no right way to do it,” Murphy continued. “A lot of the actors contacted me and said, ‘I loved him so much can I please be a part of it,’ so we put them in. It was very rough. It was very rough with Lea [Michele], but I was very proud of it.”
