When Will worries some of his students are lacking a clear direction for their futures, he tries to inspire them through the music of Saturday Night Fever. While some of the students use the lesson to get a clearer idea of what they want from their lives, it inspires others to take an extra step towards helping their loved ones achieve their dreams. Meanwhile, Sue’s arch-nemesis Roz Washington returns with an eye to wrest away control of the Cheerios, and a student from a rival show choir seeks advice from Kurt and Mercedes. (Gleezone)

GENERAL SPOILERS (Not Specific to Saturday Night Glee-Ver)

UPDATE: TheGleeSpoiler chic awkwardly spilled that both Kurt and Rachel get into NYADA (And then awkwardly tried to take it back. TOO LATE!)  That’s really not a surprise. I figured there would be a spit narrative next season between New Directions at McKinley and Kurt and Rachel at NYADA in New York City

A Big Song For Kurt & Controversial Developments Chris Colfer teased what’s next for Kurt in an interview from the  “8” Red Carpet, “Kurt’s going to have some stuff coming up which I’ m excited about–singing a very very big song. Kurt’s going to go through some stuff I don’t think everyone’s going to like, but I side with him. That’s all I’m going to say.”  (OnTheRedCarpet)

(The “big song” is probably the Whitney love song Kurt sings to Blaine in episode 17)

Is the “stuff” Kurt is going to go through have something to do with a new gay character Glee is currently casting?  The show is looking for a new gay character named Chandler who is the opposite of Sebastian–a masculine hottie who’s full of joie de vivre.

ETA: Chandler is a MINOR character: ” A Glee source assures me that the Chandler character appears in one scene, and relatively unimportant one at that. Translation: Chillax. (Chillax? You were the troll making a big deal out of it in the first place, Ausiello) (VIA TV Line)

Glee is also looking for a burly Eric Stonestreet type to play a wedding planner.  (Wemma wedding?) Hm.

“A Glee insider tells me that Season 3’s final six episodes will be “super-emotional — everyone cries when they read [the scripts] — in a good, satisfying way.”   (Via TV Line)

According to TV Line, Sam Evans (Chord Overstreet) is a SENIOR.

Max Adler (Dave Karovsky) is coming back to Glee as soon as he’s finished shooting a guest star spot on the Last Resort (FYEAHGlee)
