FOX's official synopsis of "The Quarterback":
"In the wake of Finn's sudden death, former members of New Directions return to McKinley to remember their fallen friend. While a stoic Mr. Schue encourages all the gleeks to "memorialize him the way we do everything - by singing about it," some of the kids find the exercise more cathartic than others. At the Hudson-Hummel home, Kurt, Burt and Carole sort through Finn's belongings and what begins as a somber occasion blossoms into a poignant and much needed family moment.
Meanwhile, Emma grows concerned when she believes Will is so busy taking care of others that he's not allowing himself time to grieve; Santana struggles with using her "bitch" mask to hide her fond feelings for Finn, and has a run in with Bree, McKinley's "New Santana"; and following a heart-to-heart with Coach Beiste, Puck honors Finn's memory by making a life-changing decision about his future."
