Rachel (Lea Michele), whose relationship with Finn had been one of the most significant storylines in Glee's history, will only appear at the end of the episode. She will be singing Make You Feel My Love by Bob Dylan.

Additionally, there will be a big moment with Santana (Naya Rivera) in the episode, as she will be getting "physical" with someone, according to E!Online. Santana/Rivera will be singing If I Die Young by The Band Perry in the episode.

Almost all of The Quarterback was shot using the first take of every scene, as the cast and crew had difficulty getting through the experience.

"I've never seen a crew that you can't continue shooting because they've left the room sobbing," series co-creator Ryan Murphy revealed. "It was very hard. I struggled even working on it because what they felt, not just about Finn but Cory."
