Glee Season 5 Spoilers: New New York – Grads Hit the Big Apple

Glee Season 5 Spoilers! In episode 14, airing on April 1, the storyline moves permanently to New York City. McKinley graduates to make the move include Blaine (Darren Criss), Sam (Chord Overstreet), Artie (Kevin McHale) and maybe more!

This post will serve at the spoiler roundup for the episode. Keep checking back for updates:

Ryan Murphy wrote the episode and is directed by Sanaa Hamri

Lea Michele got the episode rolling with a tweet announcing a scene between her character Rachel, Artie, Blaine, and Kurt (Chris Colfer).

Adam Lambert continues in the role of glammed out rockstar hopeful, Elliott Gilbert aka Starchild! GleekOutBr has confirmed the song spoiler we revealed. Kurt  and Elliott will duet on “Rockstar” by A Great Big World! We posted some snaps from the day Adam and Chris shot the number, in a guitar shop, bedazzled in eyeliner and leather RIGHT HERE.

Song Spoilers So Far (via GleekOutBR)

  • You Make Me Feel So Young by Frank Sinatra – Sung by Kurt and Blaine
  • People by Barbra Streisand (From Funny Girl) – Sung by Rachel Berry
  • Rockstar by A Great Big World – Sung by Kurt and Starchild

According to TV Line there IS a time jump between 5×13, when the seniors graduate and the all-New York storyline that begins in 5×14. Reportedly the action picks up sometime in fall/winter.  The seniors are settling/have already settled in their new city!

Also, from the same TV Line spoiler, Mercedes (Amber Riley) will be “sticking around.”  “You’re going to see where Mercedes’ life is going in a couple of episodes,” Amber teases. “You may even see her in a new city.”

And lastly, from the same TV Line item “Two characters with no shared romantic history whatsoever will do the tonsil tango this spring (and their PDA will be met with a resounding, ‘Ewwwww.’)” This may NOT be for 5×14, but I’m going to stick it here anyway. If you remember, when Sam and Blaine visited NYC in the “Movin Out” episode,  Sam and Rachel were making googly eyes at each other. My bet is on them as the makeout couple. It’s Tina and Sam in Trio, according to TV Line.

With new characters moving to the big apple, how will the roomate situation work out? Who will be living with whom? After Rachel and Santana (Naya Rivera) fall out in “Frenemies”, their living situation changes. Perhaps leaving room for Blaine to move in with his fiance Kurt? A spoiler notes a bedroom scene between Kurt and Blaine in the loft!

Kurt and Blaine sing “You Make Me Feel So Young” and it may take place at a flower shop that has a wedding arrangements and special occasions sign in the window! “The flower shop scene involves Kurt, Blaine, and dancing.” Choreographer teased the scene with this photo, tagging Chris and Darren, and the director, Sanaa Hamri.

Sam gets a haircut. According to the same spoiler who visited the lot and reported the flower shop, there was a “barber shop and they were filming inside of it with people walking and cars driving past.” Chord teased the haircut in a tweet.

And the actor who reportedly played the stylist teased the new do with this photo:


Chord teases a scene via instagram (must be pre-haircut!) with Blaine dressed in shorts and a t shirt. “Going for a job” posts Chord.


Casting calls for bit parts via E Online include “an obsessed subway rider,” “a S shady man on crutches who may or may not rob you of everything you have?”, “Two ridiculously hot models” and real mimes to play students in a NYADA mime class.

A recurring character named “Dmitri” will begin his run in 5×14, according to Manos Gavras, the actor who will play him.
