It’s a Glee Club Reunion!
Glee episode 21 is titled “Wonder-ful” and is a Stevie Wonder tribute episode. As if we Idol fans haven’t had enough Stevie, right? Ha.
Watch this space for updates!
UPDATE: Artie (Kevin McHale) is accepted to the Brooklyn Film Academy in NYC But Lies about it to his Mom (NEW ROOMMATE FOR THE LOFT YIPPIE). Artie tells his friends that he won’t go away to school, because his mom (Katie Sagal) has given up her whole life for him. But that’s a lie. Mom has NO problem letting him go. It’s Artie who is afraid to go. “Artie receives some sort of college news and he’s a little troubled by the idea of going out into the real world,” says Chord Overstreet to THR. “The reality is that New Directions is always supportive of anybody’s decision with what they want to do. Artie has a lot of hesitance toward going into the real world and having to deal with the reality of going to school, being alone and growing up on his own; it’s pretty big for someone who hasn’t had that challenge yet.” Kitty (Becca Tobin) is somehow involved….
UPDATE: Brittany is accepted to MIT. She’s off visiting the campus during the episode, which is why Mike is there to help with choreography for regionals. (EOnline reported that 2 MIT profs will appear in the finale) Artie gets accepted to film school. Iced White Mocha
UPDATE: Via new Glee Zone spoilers (read full summary below!), Rachel is afraid Cassandra July (Kate Hudson) will get in the way of her Broadway aspirations. Artie learns he is accepted to the college of his choice, but in order to fulfil his dream of becoming a director, he has to deal with his Mommy Issues first (played by Katy Sagal). While in Lima helping with Regionals, Mercedes gets some bad news from LA. I bet it has to do with Martin, an important, but shandy British music producer. Also, Blaine reaches out to Burt for advice. (about wanting to propose to Kurt)
Glee Zone Summary: Glee Zone
Will’s spirits are buoyed after getting several pieces of good news about his students. Having regained his trademark optimism, he tries sharing his positive vibe by assigning the kids the music of Stevie Wonder. Artie gets word that he has been accepted to his college of choice. When he balks at the chance to go for his dream of becoming a filmmaker, it takes some prodding from an unexpected source in order for him to confront the one thing he thinks is holding him back… his mother.
As Rachel prepares for her second callback for Funny Girl, she learns that NYADA policy requires her extra-curricular activity be approved by her instructors, leading to fears her dreams will be dashed by a vindictive and jealous Cassandra July. Plus, it’s old home week as Mercedes and Mike return to Lima to help get the new New Directions ready for Regionals. While the pair takes a few of the gleeks under their wings, Mercedes must contend with disheartening news from Los Angeles, prompting her to make a bold decision about her future. And when Kurt comes home to check up on his cancer-stricken father’s health, Blaine ponders his own future with Kurt and reaches out to Burt for advice.

GLEE (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) – “Wonder-ful”
The members of New Directions take on the greatest hits of music icon Stevie Wonder. Then, Artie (Kevin McHale) receives news that could affect his and his mom’s (guest star Katey Sagal) future. Meanwhile in New York, Rachel prepares for her “Funny Girl” callback. Kate Hudson guest-stars.
Kurt (Chris Colfer) comes back to Ohio for his dad, Burt’s (Mike O’Malley’s) medical appointment. Burt broke the bad news to Kurt in the Christmas episode that he had prostate cancer, but told him not to worry, because it had been caught early.
Kurt sings “You Are the Sunshine of My Life” to Burt in the McKinley choir room, with the entire New Directions present, including Blaine (Darren Criss). I’m not sure why Kurt and Burt are at McKinley, but as soon as I find out, I’ll let you know! There is definitely a Klaine reunion. Hooray.
Oh. And who is that sitting right next to Kurt and Blaine? It’s Mercedes (Amber Riley) and Mike (Harry Shum Jr.) who have travelled to Lima to help Will prepare the kids for Regionals. Mercedes will sing “Higher Ground,” which ought to be pretty fierce and “Superstitious with Blaine and Marley (Melissa Benoist).
