Lea Michele's Incredible Strength Filming Cory Monteith Tribute Episode Will Blow Your Mind

TV Addict 7

cory monteith and lea micheleThe Glee cast and crew have been back together for a couple weeks now filming season 5 in wake of Cory Monteith's death. We've heard from Naya Rivera, who plays Santana, that the mood on set is "terrible" and that the week spent filming the memorial episode has been "the worst week ever." Matthew Morrison, who plays Will Schuester, says that now that the whole cast has spent the last few months mourning Cory Monteith, they're back at it again mourning his character Finn. As hard as it is, Morrison says that the tragedy has made the entire cast and crew tighter than ever.

"We all knew we were very close," Morrison said. "I think this just kind of solidified it like we are a rock for each other right now. It's quite a beautiful thing."

I can only imagine what it's gotta be like for all of them. Just wait until you hear what Matt had to say about how Lea Michele has been handling herself on set.

According to Matt, Lea has been "the most strongest of all of us." At this point, that doesn't surprise me. We keep hearing how unbelievable Lea has been, both on- and off-set. Last month, the show's creator Ryan Murphy told TV Line that although Monteith's girlfriend was crushed, she was strong and super adamant about getting the cast and crew together during the difficult time.

Lea has really pulled it together for her friends, family, and costars. It seems as though her strength is the biggest thing that's keeping everyone going. It's impressive. OK, that's an understatement. At the very least, Lea clearly understands that she is going to have to move forward. Filming, photo shoots, commercials ... she can't stop doing the things that she's done for years because Cory is gone.

After everything we've heard about it so far, I for one am looking forward to the memorial episode and to see the McKinley crew back together, strong.

Are you looking forward to the memorial episode?

As a recent Glee fan (since my roommate broke his hand and got Netflix when he went on workers' comp), I am very excited to see how season 5 plays out with Finn (Cory) gone.

I'll be honest, I am a huge Glee fan and will likely not be watching the new season save for the episode dedicated to Cory Monteith. 

This last season was okay. I didn't bond with the new characters nearly as much since it felt like they just recycled the first season line-up. Instead of Quinn, we got Kitty. Instead of Puck, we got Puck 2.0. They substituted low self esteem Marley for über confident Rachel, and they combined the strength and sass of Mercedes with the struggles of Kurt to give us the character of Unique (ironic really...) while Mr. Shue basically vanished for most of the season and the Emma/Will storyline wilted when it should have been coming to a head with a wedding. The only thing that kept me tuning in week after week was a hope that Finn could continue to keep Rachel level-headed, raise the glee club to a higher standard, and continue to deliver the kind of heart that the show had portrayed in the first three seasons. Now I hear they are pulling a hail Mary with Demi Lovato joining the cast. Without Finn, I am likely jumping ship.

Although I will be sobbing like a child when I watch the tribute episode, I can't wait to see it! Not sure if I will continue watching; can't imagine where the story line will go without Cory....
