While Finn deals with his reborn faith, Kurt struggles with his emotion when finding out that his dad lies on hospital bed.
After an extravagant season 2 premiere and a Britney Spears episode, "Glee" is toning down the party with an emotional storyline. Not only Finn finds his belief through a toast but also Kurt is smacked with painful reality.
Finn has an existential crisis when he believes he sees the face of Jesus in his grilled cheese sandwich. Meanwhile, the rest of the kids rally around Kurt after he has a crisis of his own that leads to a larger discussion among the group about their own theology.
Among some of the songs which reportedly would be performed are R.E.M.'s "Losing My Religion", Joan Osborne's "One of Us" and Barbra Streisand's "Papa, Can You Hear Me?". The first two songs would be Finn's solo and an ensemble performance respectively.
"So cool," Cory Monteith said of his solo. "I've been a huge Michael Stipe fan all my life." He added, "We end the episode with 'One of Us'. I think it's been a long time since the song was done properly. I hope we do it well."
"Grilled Cheesus" airs October 5 on FOX.
