Murphy who considered Monteith as an “older son” was devastated about the news. Unfortunately, in Hollywood, the show must go on so Murphy and producers are already discussing what is to happen with Monteith’s character, Finn, once January rolls around.
Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter “When you’re faced with something so sad and so shocking, what do you do? Do we cancel the show? Do we start shooting in January? What do we do?”
Many of us have been wondering the same and can’t imagine how emotional it will be to write in the death into the story and make Lea relive this event, scene after scene.
But, looks like that’s exactly what is going to happen. “Ultimately, we decided the best thing for everyone is to get back to work and be around people who knew him and loved him so that everyone can grieve together” Murphy said.
Don’t throw the tomatoes just yet. E! reported that Murphy is going to through Lea for every decision made for the show’s future. Murphy said, ”It’s just rough and it sucks and there’s no right way to do it, but I just wanted people to know that there was nothing done without a lot of thought from a corporate level to a personal level, but ultimately, everyone involved made the decision, ‘OK, what does Lea want to do, what would Lea feel comfortable doing?’”
It’s usually uncomfortable watching episodes that have to write in deaths let alone imagine what it is like for the cast during shooting. So what do you guys think about this decision?
We already have our tissue boxes prepared.
