Video: Cast Of 'Glee' Cries Throughout Corey Monteith Farewell Episode Promo

It was revealed back in August that his passing would be addressed on the show, and that Monteith's character, Finn, would die. Producers also suggested that they would incorporate the theme of addiction into the episode.

The promo features the entire cast creating a memorial around Finn's locker, and many of them—including Monteith's real-life gilfriend, Lea Michele—breaking down in tears. Sad music plays in the background, and a football in placed on the ground as part of the tribute.
