I was just coming on here to start a thread if one wasn’t already done.

I cried through the whole thing. Even the opening song.

Lea’s solo… omg. I lost it. So beautiful and real.

I really wish they had tackled the drug abuse though. I wish they would have stated that was how Finn died and addressed the issue of drug abuse. It didn’t have to be the focal point, and it didn’t have to shadow remembering his great character, but it should have been noted.

Oh also, I LOVE that they gave Rachel’s character a “Finn” necklace just like the one she always wore with Cory’s name. It was a little detail that was so sweet and went a long way.

@peachacid:  There is no mention in the episode. It takes place three weeks after the funeral, and the Glee club and school is still mourning. It focuses on how great Finn’s character was, and the future he could have had, but they never mention how he died.

I actually thought the episode totally sucked. I really didn’t like jumping in three weeks after he died (with no mention of how it happened), and some of the acting was ho-rren-dous. Definitely not my favorite Glee episode.

@cmbr:  I agree it wasn’t as good as it could have been. And some of the acting made me cringe (namely with Puck). I still appreciated the memorial though.

I just really think they had an opportunity to get across that drug abuse can affect anyone of any class. No one is immune from an OD. Even the good kids can die from it.

I thought the episode was ok. I didn’t cry as much as I thought I would. I did loose it when I saw Rachael tho. I kind of like that they didn’t say how he died, I feel like it was a good way to pay tribute to him and remember him for all the good stuff, and not the bad. It let us focus more on the details of his life other then the details of his death. I read an article that said they had so many people walking off set because they were crying their eyes out, which I obviously don’t blame them for because I cry my eyes out and I didn’t even know him(although I feel like I do lol)I do agree some of the acting sucked, but I couldn’t put myself in their shoes having to do a show like that and focus on work.

@peachacid:  I completely agree. They missed an opportunity to make something of the whole sad situation. While beautiful I am not so thrilled with the glossing over the truth.

They didn’t need to make something of the situation.  The situation is already there.  The actor died of it.  That is a statement in itself.  I don’t think it was necessary for the show to tackle it.  It would have been overkill, quite honestly.

I like what they did.  Leave it ambiguous.  It’s not about the moment that caused his death.  It’s what led up to it that counts.

Omg I’ve just finished the episode and I didn’t stop crying throughout the whole thing! It was so sad. Such a tragic thing to have happened, I don’t know how Lea Michele filmed it! I cannot IMAGINE carrying on if I lost my SO.
