Gleeks everywhere know that the cast and crew are currently filming what will probably be the most difficult episode of the series, the tribute episode honouring both Finn Hudson and Cory Monteith.
While it’s been almost a month and a half since Monteith died in Vancouver, everyone involved with the series is dealing with their emotions and feelings again as they say goodbye to Finn. On Sunday, Matthew Morrison (Mr Schuester) appeared at Comedy Central’s roasting of James Franco.
He shared with E! what the mood on set was like during this difficult time:“We’re in the middle of filming it, and it’s incredibly hard. We’ve mourned Cory, but now we’re mourning Finn. So it’s kind of like two people in that one person”.
Morrison also reiterated how strong Monteith’s on and off-screen partner, Lea Michele, has been throughout the past month and a half: “It’s incredibly hard and we’re staying strong together and I have to say Lea has been the most strongest of all of us”.
Luckily for the cast, the Glee set is similar to that of a giant family and Morrison remarks on the fact that they have been able to rely on each other through the tragedy, emerging even stronger and tighter: “I think we all knew we were very close but I think this just kind of solidified it like we are a rock for each other right now. It’s quite a beautiful thing”.

More details are slowly being released about the tribute, including who will be involved and the episode title. The “deeply moving” episode will air on October 10, with Glee returning to our screens on September 26.
