Those who watched the new episode of Glee last night got a little taste of what to expect in the episode next week. While some Gleeks have known for a few weeks now the plot behind the episode, the visuals were still shocking. Glee has always been the show to take relevant issues head on, and the episode “Bash” set to air next week is no different. In “Bash” Kurt is attacked and beaten due to his sexual orientation. The official rundown of the episode that Fox gives Gleeks is, “Rachel takes the next step in committing to her role in Funny Girl. Meanwhile, Kurt is the victim of an attack because of his sexual preference.”  While Rachel is gearing up for the big Funny Girl debut, this episode will center mostly on the attack, and how everyone deals with it. Thanks to Wetpaint, we have even more information regarding what causes the attack. Kurt stumbles upon two men attacking someone else when he hears them using a homophobic slur. He steps in and to try and defuse the situation. That is when the attackers turn their attention onto Kurt, and proceed to punch him. They then hit him over the head with an object and leave him in the alley.

It is not surprising that Glee’s creators have decided to tackle yet another relevant and pressing issue. Have you seen the preview for next week’s episode “Bash?”  If not, you must check it out, and let us know your thoughts on the upcoming episode.  What do you think of the plotline? Too much, or does it bring much needed awareness to a topic? “Bash” premiers next Tuesday on Fox at 8pm EST. What did you think of last night’s episode solely based in New York?
