    "The Quarterback",I just watch this episode and it is beautifully made.It doesn't come off desperate and attention seeking,but just simple and peaceful.Especially the song "I'll stand by you" bring back old memories of season 1 that everyone love.And of course,"Make u feel my love" sung by Rachel Berry is another song that remind how Cory Monteith is a wonderful actor.If you haven't watch,go watch and prepare a box of kleenex because u know this is heart-breaking.He will be missed.

    I thought it was a bit much. I think Cory's passing was absolutely a tragedy, but the episode just wasn't very good overall. And it's not an insult to Cory to say that. It had some great tribute moments but by the end it seemed tedious and repetitive.

    I would have to agree, it wasn't one of my favorite episodes.

    Just like everything GLEE, it was sentimental and fake. The audience was meant to react to the character's reactions. They wouldn't even touch how he died. Too real. Swim in the performer's tears. Gag.

    It was okay. I never thought he was a great actor or a great singer but it's sad for Lea Michele since she was waiting for him to get out of rehab...that show has been going downhill since season 4.

    Glee did this for themselves, for their fans, and for Cory. What's wrong with that?

    "Bitch please" is right on the money! #RememberingCory

    The scene with his mother was heartbreaking. Not every scene was a home run but overall I think they did a good job honoring the character. And as they say in the episode, I would hope it would be about how we live our lives that really counts in the end.

    I can't remember the last time I've ever cried, and this episode brought me to tears. The scene with Finn's mom and dad was intense... such great acting.

    Seasons of Love, the scene with his Mom and Lea Michele's tribute was perfect. Could've left it with those for me.

    Pretty much the same for us, both of these. It was amazing but could have been better. We read something that the biggest challenge was that the creative staff and the actors were all too emotional to really do their best work on the composition of it. He certainly had his demons --- and tragically lost his battle with them. This was a fitting tribute --- highly moving at times, imperfect at others and overall.

    My s.o. and I caught the show the other night and I'm not sure what I thought of it. What kept going through my mind was how fortunate I was to have been brought up in the times where Jimmy Hendricks and Janice Joplin had died of heroin usage. Those two examples caused all my buddies and me to avoid that crap like the plague. We might have messed around with a few things in high school, but never, ever crossed the line and touched needles, heroin - - the hard stuff. Maybe this guy's passing will show the present young generation of high school kids that they need to stay clear away from crap like H.

    I felt like it was more about closure for the cast than the audience. When I can accept. I mean can you imagine just getting through all of this in real life only to have to relive it in front of the camera? I thought the songs were well done. I downloaded them from itunes. The full version of Seasons of Love is great. Mercedes' version of I'll Stand by You is what choked me up. A very powerful performance. Rachel's Make You Feel My Love was heartbreaking. You can hear her sobbing as she sang it, so you know that recording it was hard, but she was a pro.

    I think they did the best they could with a situation that was hard. This type of thing has ended shows before, so let's hope that the show will go on for this group.

    You're both worthless. Just because someone has a problem (and in his case it ended up taking his life) doesn't mean that person doesn't have any value, unlike someone who in fact has none and displays it by such inhumane comments.

    Yup. These are what I considered "the great tribute moments." The rest seemed forced and/or overkill. Even Lea Michele's moment was a bit spoiled by being at the end of the episode when I was already very weary of watching.

    That's a great point. I wonder if what others have posted here and what I read about the cast and crew being so emotional about Cory's death affected their ability to see that at some point it just gets to be MORE or TOO MUCH. And the artistic point of Lea Michele having the final say, as she was his lover in real life, was overshadowed by the burnout from the emotional overrun up to that point.

    The scene with Kurt, his father, and Finn's mother was bar none the best in that episode. Genuinely heartbreaking and real.

    My biggest issue with their tribute was the refusal to discuss what caused his death. I understand that might've taken the episode in a different direction but it felt like a big part of the story was glaringly absent. 19 year olds rarely drop dead out of the blue and because his character until that point hadn't been struggling with much that was life threatening, his death felt too abrupt not to have a context.

    Agreed. I know why they avoided it, but the episode is just too long and filled with too much unexplained grieving without it. You want to connect with the characters but you don't know what or how they are feeling. In the end I suppose it doesn't really matter how we die but I definitely think the reactions of those around us are certainly affected by it. Should I be outraged (murder), complacent (plane crash), guilty (suicide), etc.

    hmmm in a world full of fake "reality" TV, the writers and producers couldn't deal with reality.

    He should have died from a heroin OD, just like he did in reality and do a real service to the horror of drug abuse.
