"Glee" has unveiled its first look at the episode that says goodbye to Finn Hudson -- and it's a tearjerker.

The emotional promo aired at the end of Thursday's episode on Fox. The show's upcoming Oct. 10 episode will write off Cory Monteith's Finn Hudson character in the wake of the actor's July 13 death at age 31.

Next Thursday's episode, titled "The Quarterback," finds Lea Michele singing a version of Bob Dylan's "To Make You Feel My Love." Producers packed a lot of emotion in the 33-second clip filled with tears, flowers and a tribute at McKinley High.

Monteith died on July 13 at age 31 from an accidental overdose. The coroner's final report, released Wednesday, confirmed that Monteith died from using intravenous heroin combined with alcohol.
