Question: Any truth to the rumor that Sam will get kicked out of his home for being gay on Glee? —Back
Ausiello: Funny story: No, there’s no truth to that rumor. We will get to see Sam’s home life in the upcoming “Rumors” episode when Finn — suspicious that Quinn is cheating on him with Trouty Mouth — goes on a stakeout with (wait for it) Rachel!
Glee‘s April 26 outing is so big that even its usual 60-minute time slot can’t contain it. Sources confirm to me exclusively that the episode is jam-packed with good stuff to the point that Fox will likely expand it to 90 minutes.
Coincidentally, the unorthodox installment features the music of an artist who knows a thing or two about breaking the rules: Lady Gaga. While not another tribute outing, the episode’s theme of self-acceptance was inspired by the singer’s runaway hit “Born this Way.” In fact, the title of the episode is “Born This Way” and it concludes with a rousing performance of the No. 1 smash.
Before that, though, the kids grapple with their own body image issues. For example, Lauren (Ashley Fink) runs for prom queen, in so doing challenging the traditional notion of what a pageant princess looks like. Rachel (Lea Michele), meanwhile, considers getting a nose job.
Although much of the episode has already been shot, I’m told producers — pending a firm go-ahead from the network — are planning to go back and incorporate two additional musical numbers to fill out the expanded running time. It’s not clear if those numbers will be Gaga-related.
A Fox spokesperson declined to comment.
I would guess there probably are, but I’m not sure. Followers, do you know of any?
Question: Any scoop on the next six episodes of Glee? —Emma
Ausiello: Look for a VERY unlikely “romantic” pairing to take shape as the show’s second season enters the homestretch. And you know that when I do “very” in all caps like that, I mean business.
Question: Will Glee end its season with a cliffhanger? —Todd
Ausiello: That’s negatory. I’m not saying the show won’t leave you with some questions to ponder over the long, hot summer. But the episode doesn’t end with an OMGWTF-type mind twister.
Question: What leads Kurt to return to McKinley High on Glee? —Erin
Ausiello: With the Warblers’ competitive season kaput, New Directions eyes an opportunity to get their old soprano back. But there’s a twist, and it involves a power play from an unexpected source within the NDs.
I totally, totally suck at making gifs. I probably could get better but I don’t have the patience! But I do like doing caps and picspams so I always take requests for those =)
Chris Colfer accidentally revealed that Kurt would be returning to McKinley at the Paley panel (see the video posted here yesterday), so that’s pretty official.
There are a lot of rumours about Blaine, and I do remember somebody saying that Ryan Murphy had actually come out and said “the lead singer of the Warblers will be auditioning for New Directions” (or something to that effect) - but I don’t have a concrete source for that.
