Glee Creator Ryan Murphy Considering Killing Off Cory Monteith’s Character

Glee creator Ryan Murphy says it has been  a challenge to figure out the best way  to say goodbye to Finn, the character played by the late Cory Monteith.

‘At one point, we were going to have his  character die after an accidental  drug overdose – that was something we had  considered,’ he said. ‘But we have  decided that we’re not going to have him pass from that.

Instead, Murphy says the tribute, which will  be the third episode of the new season, will have an ambiguous ending that could  be addressed later on in the season.

‘Basically, what we’re doing in the episode  is we are not telling you yet, or maybe not at all, how that character died,’ he  revealed. 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,” Murphy said. ‘That might be weird for some people, but it  felt really exploitative to do it any other way.’

The fifth season of Glee is set for a  September 26 premiere and will open with two Beatles-themed episodes. The tribute episode, meanwhile, is slated to  air on October 10. The episode will be interspersed with public  service announcements from cast and crew regarding Monteith’s death, according  to Fox entertainment chairman Kevin  Reilly, and the proceeds from the episode’s music will be used to set up a  scholarship fund in his name.
