As BroadwayWorld previously reported, E! has revealed details on what viewers can expect to see on the emotionally packed show.
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.
An inside source revealed to the site, "You will cry from beginning to end," while another shared, "I cried as I read it, on every page."
In addition, E! has learned that the episode will be set entirely in Lima, Ohio, home of fictional McKinley High, where Monteith's character Finn Hudson enjoyed four years as star quarterback. The tribute will open with the news of Finn's death before going on "to focus on all the characters remembering and mourning him, and celebrating his life."
The site hints that Naya Rivera's Santana has "a great, memorable part in the episode."
On Wednesday, series star Jane Lynch tweeted her thoughts on the upcoming episode, posting "Just read Cory Monteith memorial episode. Most beautiful thing. Thank you, @MrRPMurphy @BFalchuk Ian Brennan."
