Last week’s episode of Glee was one of the best written, acted, directed, and sung in all of the series. The theme of original song brought about some of the funniest, endearing, and most poignant moments of the show. From Kurt and Blaine’s sweet unapologetic kiss to Rachel’s emotional powerhouse ballad to Finn. Our usual one hour of Glee seemed to last longer than usual (but in a good way), with a groundbreaking 11 song numbers. So now that our New Directions have won Regionals, what’s next? Read on to find out some shocking spoilers before the season finale that airs Tuesday, May 24.
The Wrath of Sue
Apparently, losing your Cheerios to your worst enemy and an embarrassing interview with Katie Couric can really make Sue hold a grudge. After the loss at Regionals, McKinley’s biggest bully plans even more revenge on Mr. Schue and the glee club. Armed with some help from Vocal Adrenaline coach Cheyenne Jackson, Will’s ex-wife Terri, and ex-glee club/teacher/pot dealer Sandy Ryerson, Sue plans to create the world’s most notorious “I Hate New Directions” club. Yikes!
Born This Way
It appears that Glee will be revisiting both Lady Gaga and gay tolerance. Fresh off the recent outing of Santana and that Kurt/Blaine kiss, another episode will tackle the woes of one closeted and conflicted Karofsky. According to Cory Monteith (who plays Finn), the episode “gets kind of heavy.” In addition, episode 18 will bring Santana a new love interest, but no word yet on if it’s a boy or girl. Writers for the show say they’ll be focusing now on Santana’s solo journey and how she comes to terms with her own sexuality. Last but not least, Kurt and Blaine go to prom! But not everyone is pleased with that…
Vocal Adrenaline Bugs
I’ve already mentioned that the tiny, shouting foreign exchange student from hell is returning to Glee to do a number or two. But apparently, she’s not the only Vocal Adrenaline member to bring trouble to New Directions. VA coach Dustin Goolsby (played by Cheyenne Jackson) will make a play for Mr. Schuester’s new gal pal, Holly Holiday aka Substitute Teacher Extraordinaire (played by Gwyneth Paltrow). Sadly, the only vocal enemy we won’t be seeing again this season is one Jessie St. James.
Some Confirmed Songs for Upcoming Episodes:
Ain’t No Way by Aretha Franklin, Because You Loved Me by Celine Dion, Born This Way by Lady Gaga, Slow Ride by Foghat, You’re the Inspiration by Chicago.
Bonus Item: There was a rumor going around that Kurt would be returning to McKinley High and that fact has been confirmed at this year’s Paleyfest, where producer Ryan Murphy also hinted that Blaine would be auditioning for New Directions in season 3! Not to worry Warbler fans, you’ll be able to buy the new all-Warblers glee album coming out soon!
