GLEE's Monteith Tribute Episode Gets Title
Last week BWW revealed details on GLEE's upcoming tribute to late actor Cory Monteith. Today sources share that the emotion-filled episode will be titled 'The Quarterback.' The show, which will focus on Monteith's character Finn Hudson, is set to air Thursday, October 10th.
Set entirely in Lima, Ohio, home of fictional McKinley High, where Hudson enjoyed four years as star quarterback, the episode opens with the news of the athlete's death before going on "to focus on all the characters remembering and mourning him, and celebrating his life."
Lea Michele, who portrays Rachel Berry, the on again-off again girlfriend of Finn, will not be seen until the final scene. While her appearance is brief, her performance is "incredibly powerful." A musical number performed by Michele's character will also be featured.
