The high school musical drama “Glee” said goodbye to Finn, its beloved singer-quarterback, while paying tribute to Cory Monteith, the late actor who had portrayed him, in a much-anticipated episode that aired Thursday.

Just how “Glee” would handle the death of Monteith had haunted the Fox series and its fans since the 31-year-old star was found dead in a Canadian hotel room in July of an accidental alcohol and drug overdose.

Soon after, the decision was made by the show’s producers to write Finn out of the series, and decisively: He, too, would die.

But as viewers of Thursday’s emotional yet reflective episode found, Finn’s death wasn’t dramatized, nor was his funeral seen. Instead, the episode picked up several weeks afterward, focusing on the impact of his death on his friends. Tears flowed, and tempers flared. The episode was more a meditation on what death means to those left behind than on death itself.

In fact, the cause of Finn’s death wasn’t disclosed.

“Everyone wants to talk about how he died, but who cares?” one character said. “I care about how he lived.”

Coach-turned-principal Sue Sylvester, played by Jane Lynch, said the way to honor Finn was to take care of the people he loved. How? “By not making a self-serving spectacle of our own sadness,” she said.

The episode seemed to try hard not to do that, if not always successfully, as “Glee” characters grieved by remembering Finn — and, of course, by gathering in song.

Numbers included “Fire and Rain,” ”525,600 Minutes” and “If I Die Young.”

If certain key details relating to Finn’s fate were glossed over, reality intruded vividly on the show’s make-believe tale, not only by Finn’s absence but by the particular grief displayed by Lea Michele’s character, Rachel, who didn’t appear until late in the hour.

Michele and Monteith had been romantic partners off-screen, and the loss she displayed in her scenes as Rachel must have been heart-felt.

“I loved Finn,” Rachel said, choking up, as she stood before the glee club crowd.

Then she tearfully sang the episode’s show stopper: “Make You Feel My Love.”

While the storyline didn’t touch on the issue of drug addiction, a brief public service announcement delivered by cast members over the closing credits reminded the audience how Monteith had battled substance abuse and lost his battle.

Multi-talented singer Alexander Bagonza alias APass spent sometime and paid a visit to ailing tycoon Bryan White.

In his visit, APass nearly shed tears after sighting Bryan’s deteriorating health.

In response, APass took it to his social media and disclosed Bryan’s agony, that can only be resolved by joint prayers from the public.

He also begged those who wish to judge him not to bother at the moment but instead later.

Read APass statement in full;

I have never seen a brother in so much pain, guys

Please put my brother Bryan White in your prayers because he is fighting For his life every minute.

And even if you want to judge him do that later.

I was humbled to be allowed to pay him a visit at his home but he is in bad shape but strong at heart and I pray he stays that way and gets well.  #PrayForBryanWhite

Bryan White was hospitalized last month after contracting intestinal complications to point to flying his blood samples to South Africa for advanced examination.

Unfortunately, efforts to revive the tycoon’s stand as before has been in vain as he was discharged earlier this week from Nakasero Hospital after medical specialists failing to find out his illness.

We wish Bryan White a quick recovery!
