"The producers are still going back and forth on what they want to do and clearing music for his tribute. But most of all, 'Glee's' creative team is looking to Lea to give the final word on decisions that are being made for this season's third episode, which will be an emotional tribute to Cory.
"The meetings are lengthy and Lea is a part of them to make sure everything is just right," a source said. Monteith passed away July 13 in his room at Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver. He died due to an overdose of a mix of alcohol and heroin. He was 31.
