A few disclaimers/guide lines before I start this thread: 1) This thread in no way is meant to bash Cory. Conversation is focused around glee and how to logically write him off. 2) These posts should deal with Glee as its focus and not be focused solely on his situation. 3) I actually do watch Glee before it's asked And now for the actual thread. As a lot of you know already Glee star Cory Monteith died last night and it is being speculated this his past alcohol/drug history is to blame for this. Now seeing as Glee is in between seasons Cory somehow has to mysteriously get written off television. Now almost any other TV I'd have said this would be easy however Glee a T.V show about every day problems and how to topple them could potentially use this to their advantage. Now I think seeing as he was the "glue" of the group I sense that he won't be written off jokingly as that would be rude to his memory. I also think it would be rude if it was only done in brief passing since there's a lot of unfinished story lines from last season with him. So as to what to do about the situation. Write up a storyline where Cory/Finn whilst working to be a teacher ended up making a bad decision did drugs and alcohol and ended up dying. Another disclaimer: all this is hypothetical on his family's consent. I think if what people say about him are true and he was the heart of glee then using a real life situation and showing the audience how it can effect you would be something he'd figuratively sign on for. I think this would be also very effective if they included a RIP Cory Monteith at the end to hit home that this stuff happens. Sure it be controversial, sure it be debated, and sure it would by typical Glee fashion to push the boundaries a bit. What are your thoughts?
