Jane Lynch tweeted Wednesday that the script was the “most beautiful thing” and thanked series creator Ryan Murphy and executive producers Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan.
Murphy recently said Finn’s passing would not mirror what happened to Monteith, who died from a toxic mix of drugs and alcohol in July — and that the memorial episode may not definitively say how Finn passes away.
“How somebody died is interesting and maybe morbid, but we say very early on in the episode, ‘This episode is about a celebration of that character’s life.’ That might be weird for some people, but it felt really exploitative to do it any other way,” Murphy said.
He added: “I think [the script] turned out to be a lovely tribute, and it’s a very heartfelt look at how some people grieve. We’re trying to craft an episode that’s not just about us grieving but about a lot of the young fans grieving.”
