Glee Without Cory Monteith? How Will Glee Handle Cory Monteith’s Death?

By on July 15, 2013

Glee without Cory Monteith? It’s hard to imagine Finn Hudson not returning to the hallway of McKinley High.


How are the writers going to handle the death of Cory Monteith? The actor was missing in action when he went into rehab last April, missing the last two episodes of the season. In season four, he appeared to be taking over for Mr. Shue as head of the Glee Club.

The producers have three choices; they can gloss over Finn not being around – he decided to go into the army after all, they can have Finn die or they can replace Finn. Since Cory being replaced as the role of Finn is impossible this option is definitely not an option. Finn going into the army is an option. Finally, Finn dying would be extremely emotional – not only for his fans, but for Lea Michele, both the love of his life onscreen and offscreen. Having Finn die would be something we all tuned into – a final good bye but it isn’t about the ratings. It’s about handling this with care and class.

Saying a final goodbye to Cory/Finn seems fitting. When you think about Glee, you think about Finn and Rachel.

    I can’t imagine them recasting.. that would be inappropriate. I could see him going into the army and them just saying he left without saying goodbye. That way at the end Rachel could go and look for Finn and someone say they were together. However, I think they should probably kill off the character. It’s going to be emotional and it’s going to be heartwrenching but the character of Finn deserves closure. We’ve watched him grow, seen him fall in love, and watched him mature into an amazing young man. He should be mourned and we, as fans, should be able to say a proper goodbye! RIP Cory! You will never be forgotten.

    I can’t imagine how they’ll keep doing the show without him, but I also can’t imagine how they’d stop doing the show altogether. This is going to be awful.
