Finally got around to watching the Glee episode in which they addressed the death of Finn Hudson, played by Cory Monteith, a talented young actor who sadly overdosed in July.
The episode was excellent. And you could tell the tears were quite real. My weird brain can tell when newscasters, for instance, are faking sadness while reporting sad stories. They do it a lot. They likely have to because they report so much of it.
During the 9/11 reporting, the sad and shocked eyes on the faces of newscasters expressed genuine emotions. I felt the same with the Glee episode, especially the scene where Finn's family gathers in his room to sort through belongings.
Finn's mother sobbed: “You get to go on being a parent even though you don’t have a child anymore.”
