Saying goodbye to Cory and Finn on last night’s Glee was difficult. I watched off a stream in Italy at 3 a.m., one of my weirder Glee-watching situations.  It was a numb sort of feeling, which is usually my way of dealing with grief. And then I wrote about it until almost 6 a.m.

There’s no perfect way to do this sort of an episode, but “Glee” gave Cory and Finn a heartfelt send-off the way they knew best. Where “Glee” often falls shorts is continuity, and this is their greatest test. Cory and Finn were part of the great heartbeat of “Glee,” and hopefully instead of letting this loss throw off their rhythm, they’ll forge ahead. Let the characters grow from this, let this sit with them forever, and let “Glee” move forward as something that brings joy but doesn’t forget its new foundation.

The Heights’ “How Do You Talk to an Angel” ascended to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The theme from the Fox TV series outlasted the show: by the time the song reigned, “The Heights” had been cancelled. (Thankfully, the melodic song lives on.)

A new season of “Glee” is here, and with that comes Friday morning recaps and “Glee” gifs! In this week’s premiere episode, the cast covered Adele, Carly Rae Jepsen, Imagine Dragons, Lady Gaga and more as Rachel adjusted to New York and the New Directions searched for “The New Rachel.”
