Why? Because you can't do it? Everyone grieves differently and just because you can't sing when you're grieving doesn't mean other people can't. Same reason why some people grieve openly and some won't even shed a tear in public. I've seen people who've lost their loved ones sing in funerals and finish their song. Does it mean their grief isn't there? Stop being a douche just because these people are actors/singers.

I cried from beginning to end. I do think it was done well, but it would have been nice to see some flashback moments or something. And it sure seemed like they centered a lot around Santana, which was a little strange to me. I wish we could have seen more of Rachel, but I get how it was real the way they did it, with her not wanting to come out and face reality and it took time. I also don't really get Diana Agron not being there. I know she had other commitments, but damn, this was kind of a big deal. The scenes with Burt and Carole were, as you said, gut wrenching. Rachel and Mr. Shue in the choir room was so hard to watch. And Mr. Shue at the end, just sobbing, was heartbreaking. Sue's moment was really touching as well. Throughout the rest of this show, I'll always be remembering Cory! It's not the same without him.

It was good but not a great story... i just felt the lack of finn hudson in glee, i was just hoping they put some scene of finn before, in the choir room while singing. some camera tricks like imagination.. i mean just what they did in season 3 final episode. combination of before and present scene.. just to remember not only his song but also his scene in glee...i just hope they have flashback of finn's scene... since the episode if for finn...

@fudgefase.. Are you kidding me?

They filmed the episode a month after Cory died. They all love Cory/Finn and the episode was necessary. It had to look like a tv show episode. Not some documentary.

I cried the whole time I fell asleep and woke up still feeling so sad like it wasn't real. When I read that cory died I didn't cry I felt sad of course but it didn't hit home for me till last night. I think they paid a great tribute to him in this episode especially with Seasons of love.

I cried from start till end. I just couldn't stop. I've loved glee since season 1 and I loved Finn/Cory, but I didn't cry when I heard the news about Cory, but I could tonight. This was a way to let people move on. Finn/Cory will always be missed on Glee. But "The show must go... all over the place... or something."

I was expecting a sad episode, but for some reason this hit home with me. I bawled from seasons of love to the end with Mr. Shue.

I haven't watched Glee in a while but wanted to catch this episode. When I heard of Cory's death I wasn't truly affected. However seeing the people he left behind grieve in such a public way was heartbreaking. It caused fear in me about the day I loose someone. Their performances were spectacular based on their real anguish. I am not a crier. It takes a lot to get my tear ducts working, but this had them going from the start to finish. I am glad I watched it alone. Will I watch next week, can't say. But this episode felt right. Sometimes death needs to have a moment for those left behind as well as those who have passed.

Honestly? I thought it was overdone. The only good thing was that they didn't bother to try to write a storyline around it (which imho would have been exploitative) and just gave them all a chance to showcase their talents once again. I am now finding Glee to be navel-gazing and self centered, and this episode said that more than anything. If your friend dies suddenly and tragically, believe me, you can't sing. You can't. You can't control your breath or your voice. Been there. Done that. I just found the episode to be so schmatzy and 'acted' that it was uncomfortable to watch. The only half real bits were the spoken episodes with Finns dad. They were heartbreaking.
