Beginning round two of the Glee Season 6 spoilers fest! Yesterday, I posted the full list of song spoilers, plus production credits, for the Glee Season 6 premiere “Loser Like Me.”
Now today, I bring you episode details! I tried to answer the most pressing questions fans of the show wanted answered. Once again: Don’t shoot the messenger! And, if you use my spoilers I would like a credit as mjsbigblog.com AND a link bank.
Enjoy! Or maybe not.

- After months apart, Kurt changes his mind about Blaine and heads back to Lima to try and get him back. But too late because…

A couple of NEW ITEMS
- There is a flashback that takes place at Scandals. It explains how Blaine and Karofsky got together. They bumped into each other at the club on “Country Bear Night.” Karofsky buys Blaine a beer.
- The flashback occurs during a scene at the
Lima Bean, Scandals where Blaine and Kurt reunite for the first time since they broke up. After Blaine and Kurt talk initially, Karofsky appears as Blaine breaks the news to Kurt that they are dating. The flashback is part of the reveal. Blaine and Karofsky hope they all can be friends. Kurt keeps it together in front of them.
More New Items
- We first see Kurt in New York, months after his break up with Blaine. Finally, he decides to speed date. One of his speed daters senses that Kurt isn’t over an old relationship and calls him out on it. Kurt is surprised, but the experience sets him on the path to realizing that he still loves Blaine.
ETA: A fan who was present at the Scandals shoot, which took place 9/19, got a look at the call sheet. Everything I described above happened at Scandals (including the flashback), rather than at the Lima Bean. Also, according to the OP, the scene takes place near the end of the episode.
ETA: Details from the call sheet. Kurofsky happens to be, line dancing.After Kurt Blaine and Karofsky reveal they are a couple and describe how they met, Kurt heads off to the men’s room where he breaks down in tears. In the flashback, it’s country bear night at Scandals. Blaine first spots Kurofsky line dancing.
ETA: Also, according to the call sheet, Rachel seeks counsel from Mr. Shue at a Vocal Adrenaline adrenaline rehearsal. This is where the group sing “Dance the Night Away.” – Source.
The Karofsky spoilers are KILLING ME. I’m happy Max Adler is returning to play the role, but pairing him up with Blaine is just a cheap way to cause controversy and create drama. Also, the idea that all of the graduates return to Lima and wind up working at respective high schools is ridiculously contrived. Glee never managed to work it’s way out of the creative hole it painted itself into when the stars of the show graduated high school at the end of season 3. I’m sure I’ll have more thoughts on this later.
