Glee is saying its final goodbye to Cory Monteith.
The hit comedy-drama's creator Ryan Murphy gave a glimpse of what to expect from the tribute episode when he tweeted the black and white photo of its fallen star (above) along with the caption, "First look."
Monteith's tribute episode will be the third episode of the show's fifth season, which started last night. While the folks at Fox were pretty tight lipped regarding the details, it's been revealed that the hour will center around the death of Finn Hudson with the other characters remembering and mourning their friend.
"Basically, what we're doing in the episode is we are not telling you yet, or maybe not at all, how that character died," Murphy explained. "The idea being, how somebody died is interesting and maybe morbid, but we say very early on in the episode, 'This episode is about a celebration of that character's life.' That might be weird for some people, but it felt really exploitative to do it any other way."
Monteith's girlfriend and co-star Lea Michele will also appear during the final act of the episode.
