Check out some brand new photos from upcoming episodes of Glee.
On Thursday, the McKinley High gang performs the musical “Grease” (Episode 6). But there is drama off the stage too, as Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) journey back to Lima to attend the show–and confront their exes for the first time since the big break up. Kate Hudson returns as Cassandra July, the evil NYADA teacher from hell. She gives Rachel advice on auditioning for Broadway.
On Thanksgiving night, FOX will air “Dynamic Duets” (Episode 7) and Gleezone describes it:
When New Directions’ arch foes steal the team’s coveted Nationals’ trophy, it is up to McKinley’s resident superheroes to save the day. Two of the Glee Club’s newest members battle over the affections of a third. Blaine meets the Warblers’ new team captain and wrestles with a tempting offer.
The Glee “Thanksgiving” special (Episode 8) airs a week later. Nobody would watch it otherwise (Good luck with that Thanksgiving night deal, FOX). Not only is it turkey day, but New Directions will compete against the Warblers at Sectionals. The Gleezone Description:
With the holidays looming, several McKinley graduates return to Lima; Finn drafts his old teammates to help mentor the new New Directions through Sectionals. As Jake and Ryder’s friendship continues to grow, they put their differences aside for the good of the team. Alone together in New York, Rachel and Kurt plan for a quiet “orphan’s Thanksgiving” with unexpected results. Meanwhile, Kurt gets some sound advice from a trusted source and Rachel and Brody begin to reconnect.
“Swan Song” (Episode 9) airs on December 6. No details, yet, except that Brad Falchuk is directing and Whoopi Goldberg will reprise her role as NYADA grand dame. Brad tweeted a photo featuring Chris Colfer and Whoopie, so I have to wonder if Kurt will decide on whether to re-apply to the school or forge a new career path at Vogue.com in fashion.
Finally, the Christmas special (Episode 10) will air on December 13, the last before winter break. “Glee Actually” will weave stories around the kids in Ohio and New York in an interesting way, hints director Adam Shankman. The SYTYCD judge has been tweeting like mad since he hit the Paramount lot. Check out his behind the scenes photos! Burt Hummel will spend Christmas with Kurt and Rachel in New York. And somehow, Blaine makes his way to New York too. There will be a Klaine duet. I hear it’s “White Christmas”. There’s also a sweet nod to “It’s a Wonderful Life” with Rachel dressed as Donna Reed and Sam (Chord Overstreet) and Brittany (Heather Morris) marrying in the McKinley High locker room! Damian McGinty returns as Irish exchange student, Rory.
