After nearly two years away from the top 10, the “Glee” cast returns to the region, with the soundtrack to the Fox TV show’s Oct. 10 episode titled “The Quarterback.” The EP enters at No. 7 with 47,000. The episode dealt with the death of the character Finn Hudson and doubled as a tribute to the late actor who played him, Cory Monteith. Proceeds from the sales of the six-song EP and its tracks benefit the charity Project Limelight.
