UPDATE: More Asian F Spoilers (Including Song list and episode details HERE)
Gleezone has posted the Synopsis for Glee 3×03:
Mike is under pressure to quit New Directions; Rachel and Mercedes face-off for the lead in the school play with unforeseen results; the campaign for class President gets a new candidate; and Will worries that Emma is embarrassed by him.
After Mike Chang scores an A- (otherwise known as an “Asian F”) on a chemistry test, his father orders him to drop out of New Directions to focus on academics; the edict forces the young performer to choose between pleasing his parents or staying true to his dreams. Following some encouragement from her new boyfriend (Shane), a confident Mercedes delivers a phenomenal audition for the part of “Maria”; forcing a head-to-head callback against previous favorite Rachel to determine who will get the prized role. Brittany enters the race for senior class President, and proves a formidable opponent. When a worried Will wonders why Emma has yet to introduce him to her parents, Coach Beiste encourages him to take the initiative.
As Mike struggles to choose his life-path, he gets surprising support from an unexpected source. Unable to reach an agreement on casting, the directors of the school play make a compromise they hope will please everyone; unfortunately their actions have the opposite result, forcing one member of Glee Club to make a shocking announcement.
This is the episode where we meet Mike Chang’s parents. So, the TV Line spoiler was correct. Brittany does eventually run for class president. I guess that happens after Kurt fires her in 3×02? (See the Episode 2 synopsis HERE).
Speaking of the Ep 2 spoilers. Harry Shrum Jr. tweeted today, “Shooting a really “cool” number today. Maybe “Cool” from West Side Story for the school musical? Glee Zone also reports that Lauren and Azimo (Karovsky’s sidekick) will appear in Ep 3. (Maybe not totally done with Ashley Fink yet even if she only has one brief flashback scene in the premiere that explains why she dumped Puck and left New Directions.)
There are song spoilers for Glee 3×01 “The Purple Piano Project” floating around, but I’m reading conflicting reports regarding their veracity. Only “We’ve Got The Beat” is verified.
“Popular” – Glee Cast – Wicked – Glee
“Party All The Time” – Glee Cast – Black Eyed Peas
“We Got The Beat” – Glee Cast – The Go-Gos – Glee
“Run The World (Girls)” – Glee Cast – Beyonce – Glee
Also, the always annoying @UltimateGleeks are spoiling a Katy Perry song, but won’t reveal all the deets until they get 15K notes on their tumblr. God, I wish I could spoil it myself. I love effing with asshats like that. But I digress.
Ms Amber P. Riley appears to be singing up a storm. According to tweets from her co-stars, she gets quite a bit of song-time in both 3×03 and 3×04. Lea shot a duet with Amber on Friday, and watched her perform yesterday morning. Jenna Ushkowitz tweeted, “wait til you see this episode filled with @MsAmberPRiley shes bringing her A game”
And…look who was in the studio on Thursday! Glee Project Winner, Damian McGinty!
He begins his 7 ep story arc with Glee 3×04.
