Glee Season 4 Spoilers “Guilty Pleasure” Episode 17 Details! (Song Spoilers!)

Glee 4x17 - Guilty Pleasures -

UPDATED: More Photos! FOX released stills featuring Kurt, Rachel and Santana that are pretty hilarious. See at the bottom of the page.

“Guilty Pleasure” is the title of the Glee episode set to air on March 21. It’s a week of confessions as the gleeks come clean about their deepest (if not darkest) guilty pleasures.  The episode was written by Russel Friend and Garrett Lerner and Directed by Eric Stoltz  Here’s the plot summary from Glee Zone:

When Blaine and Sam confess their guilty pleasures to each other (Sam is a macaroni art savant and Blaine likes Wham!), they discover how the honest exchange strengthened the bond of friendship between them. With Finn gone and Mr. Schue out sick, the pair takes charge of the leaderless glee club. In a bid to bring the kids of New Directions closer together, they suggest that for their weekly assignment the gleeks perform songs by their own musical guilty pleasures. What starts out as a very personal and potentially embarrassing exercise soon morphs into a unifying display of friendship, as the kids discover many of them are harboring the same favorites they worried exposing would result in ridicule. Meanwhile, in New York, one of Kurt’s guilty pleasures is revealed, and Rachel learns the truth about Brody, leading her to make an empowered decision about her future.

The episode is full of fun songs from Wham!, The Spice Girls, Barry Manilow, ABBA and more!  Each of the ND girls embody a specific Spice Girl for their performance: Brittany is Sporty Spice, Kitty is Ginger Spice, Marley is Posh Spice, Tina is Scary Spice and Unique is Baby Spice. (via Gleek Out Brasil)

Thanks to Santana’s detective work, Rachel learns about Brody’s extra-curricular activities (He’s a man whore) and the two perform a VERY emotional rendition of “Creep” by Radiohead.   Filming the scene exhausted Lea Michele. She tweeted, “This scene I’m shooting at #Glee today requires lots and lots of crying.. At first it’s therapeutic.. Then it just becomes exhausting! :(”  According to sources, Brody will eventually  move out of the Bushwick loft after ending up with a black eye  from Finn. For her part, Santana goes all “Lima Heights” on Brody!

Wham! Isn’t Blaine’s only guilty pleasure.  He also admits to Sam that he’s been crushing on him.  Sam had already figured it out and is totally cool with it. As a result, they become closer than ever (Via Gleek Out Brasil)  Sam’s guilty pleasure? Macaroni art! And he randomly makes a portrait of Kurt!

Kitty guests on Brittany’s internet show “Fondue for Two” and the duo chat about their guilty pleasures.

The ABBA “Mama Mia” performance looks intriguing as it involves casts from both Lima and New York City.

Darren Criss’ performance of “Against All Odds” was shot LIVE on set. Remember his tearful performance of “Teenage Dream” in “The Break Up”?  I expect this latest live performance to be as moving and immediate.

Kurt’s guilty pleasure appears to be that he sleeps with a “boyfriend pillow.” He REALLY DOES miss Blaine. Get those two back together again, already!

Jake’s “guilty pleasure” is Chris Brown. He changes his song to one by Bobby Brown for a reason…

    Still no sign of Jessica Sanchez :( *Stills holds out hope though*

    Slide #4 says Sam and Blaine are ABBA. That’s Jake, not Blaine. Kurt macaroni is mostly beans. Lima beans I’m guessing (sorry, couldn’t resist). Also thinking Sam makes it as a gift for Blaine, and he won’t mind whatever it’s made of.

  • Axxxel

    aaaw Glee is my guilty pleasure… seems like a lovely episode… I love me some Sam-Blaine bromance !!

  • David??[08-09????]

    Lol Fondue for two is the best show ever

  • mjsbigblog

    Not in “Guilty Pleasures” sorry.

    I fixed the ABBA photo. Thanks Jeffrey.

  • Landon Cox

    Because what we really needed is another cover of Against All Odds

  • Axxxel

    LOL… I have to admit… I am already saturated with that song… but it is always nice to introduce an old song to a young public… Just like Glee introduced  Katy Perry, Paramore and Lady Antebellum to an oldie like me …

  • sweetmm

    I can’t wait to watch the Wham rendition :)

  • Landon Cox

    This is pretty funny though, our karaoke league here in DC is doing Guilty Pleasures as a theme in a couple of weeks. I’m doing Hit ‘Em Up Style, in tribute to Janay Castine and her crazy eyes. And/or Joshua Ledet.

  • JasonG

    I’m assuming she will be in the last part of the season as a rival to New Direction maybe in a different show choir if they are going to Nationals again?

  • mjsbigblog

    I have a feeling ND will lose Regionals. Production on 18 is beginning and THAT isn’t the Regionals episode either. Something is up.

  • DD

    I can’t wait for Blam Wham!! LOL

    And Darren is singing “Against All Odds” live. Which means it will be phenomenal!

  • jeffreyd95821

    Would we put it past him to make it a cliffhanger? No prom episode yet and except for Blaine helping Sam find a college they havn’t even mentioned graduation. Blaine also hasn’t auditioned for NYADA either. Could they stretch the school year out into season 5? 

  • mjsbigblog

     That would be weird, but it would solve the graduation conundrum. And it’s a very real possibility that Season 5 will be Glee’s last, so they can wrap up with the graduates moving on to new horizons.

  • mmb

    There is no reason to ever, EVER, feel guilty about Wham! or Barry Manilow :)


    brittany going be hurt damn and she sweet one

  • jeffreyd95821

    I think I like the Wham song the best. Darren and Chord sound good together. Surprised nobody else has commented on the “you have feeling for me?” that Blaine says to Sam. I’m guessing a tease to excite the tumblr teens. It’s already been leaked that Sam knows about Blaine’s crush and is cool with it. I’m predicting Sam gives Blaine “macaroni & bean Kurt” and Blaine may be momentarily confused. I I’m thinking Against All Odds will be interspersed with shots of Kurt on the couch with Boyfriend Pillow and both with tears in their eyes and we will all need to have our box of Kleenex within reach.

  • DD

    I am expecting that song to be a kleenex moment….unless RIB decides to remove and and all context of the song!

  • DD

    The video for “Wake Me Up” is floating around on Tumblr. It is so full of cheesy goodness! I can’t wait!
