"We had a beautiful memorial for Cory in the auditorium and some of the cast members sang and people spoke about him," Michele added. "It only felt right that we would do the same thing for Finn, so I felt it was very therapeutic."
According to Michele, she lost two people when Monteith passed: Cory, and his character Finn. The tribute episode, aptly titled "The Quarterback," will feature Michele's character, Rachel, mourning Finn's death. She'll also present the glee club with a plaque that she took from the set and brought on trips with Monteith for fun. Ryan Murphy, in turn, wrote Monteith and Michele's real-life adventures into the script, which was "so unbelievable that they chose to do that in the episode," Michele added.
"The Quarterback" will air tomorrow, October 10, on FOX at 9 p.m. (Just Jared)
