Last night “Glee” aired the special Cory Monteith memorial episode.

Tears were flowing and things got real and the general consensus from “Glee” fans is that it did Cory’s life justice and all the musical numbers were satisfying and heartfelt.

Here’s everything you need to know about the episode:

-They didn’t address how Cory died. Cory died from a heroin overdose, but there was no mention of a cause of death in last night’s episode. According to Kurt, “it doesn’t matter. All that matters is how he lived.”

-Lea Michele didn’t appear until the very end of the episode and sang the moving finale song, “Make You Feel My Love.”

-Other songs included “Fire and Rain,” “525,600 Minutes” and “If I Die Young.”

-Critics are bashing the episode for having no real plot, calling it an exercise in “grief-through-song.”

-There were no clips of Finn’s character shown.

-There was nothing to warn young “Glee” fans about overdoses except a PSA played over the end credits about the dangers of drugs.
