Finn Hudson, Glee
Following his real-life overdose death, Glee mourned the loss of Cory Monteith’s Finn Hudson on the third episode of its fifth season. But Finn’s cause of death wasn’t revealed to viewers. “That doesn’t matter,” insisted Kurt (Chris Colfer) in the episode titled
The Quarterback, which took place “three weeks to the day” after Finn’s funeral. Monteith’s girlfriend and co-star Lea Michele showed up in the episode’s closing moments to sing Bob Dylan’s Make You Feel
My Love. In Monteith’s absence, Glee lasted another season and a half.
