Did You Know?


When Rachel gives Will the plaque with Finn's photo and his quote, "The show must go on...all over the place...or something," Will asks her if Finn actually said that. She laughs and says yes. This is an actual Finn quote from the episode 17 in season 2 "A Night of Neglect." See more »


Sue Sylvester: If students wish to mourn Finn's passing, they're free to visit the memorial that I erected. I planted a tree in the exact location where I caught Finn and Quinn Fabray fondling each other's breasts.
Will Schuester: Come on Sue.
Shannon Beiste: How can you even joke at a time like this?
Sue Sylvester: Ah take it easy post-op Michael Chiklis, I'm grieving. And I grieve by insulting those who mean the most to me. It's just a coincidence that's also what I do when I'm not grieving.

The Quarterback
15 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First of all, I personally love glee, and it is such an exciting show. This episode was very sad, and paid tribute to Cory Monteith's character, Finn, extremely well. The songs were perfect, especially Rachel's, and you could really feel everyones emotions coming through. The acting is amazing, and everyone had to be strong. It is astonishing how Lea Michele could pull such a hard song off, and actually make it perfect. The directors delt with this episode very well, and it will be hard for Glee to top this. Hopefully the rest of Glee's season is amazing, and I am excited to see what will happen next. Overall, this episode is very well done, and it deserves a 10/10!
