The McKinley High family, present and past, join together to remember and celebrate the life of Finn Hudson in the all-new "The Quarterback" episode of GLEE airing on Thursday, October 10 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
The full cast will cover "Rent's" "Seasons of Love," while Lea Michele will solo on a cover of Bob Dylan/Adele's "Make You Feel My Love" during Thursday's emotional hour.
"What you will see in the episode is what really happened," Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy recently said of the tribute. "Brad [Falchuk] and Ian [Brennan] and I wrote that episode and Brad directed it, and those performances that you'll see, almost everything in that episode is from the first take of every performance because the actors and the crew had a really hard time shooting it. I've never seen a crew that you can't continue shooting because they've left the room sobbing. It was very hard. I struggled even working on it because what you're seeing is what they felt not just about Finn but Cory. It's amazing performances across the board and everybody went into it with a lot of love," he continued. "What I loved about it is when you write something like that, there's no right way to do it."
