competition episodes have produced some of the best and most memorable episodes. From “Nationals” to “New York,” to this year’s episode dedicated to the national competition “City of Angels,” we have come to expect great things from these special episodes.
If this season’s episode is anything like its predecessors, Gleeks are in for a major treat! Lucky for you, we have the inside scoop for what’s going down on “City of Angels.”
Warning major spoilers ahead!!
As some of you might have guessed, this episode takes the New Directions out of Lima, Ohio and all the way to Los Angeles, California in search for their second consecutive national championship. The glee club dedicates their performance in Finn’s memory who was such a vital part of getting them to the championship. It is only fitting that Carol and Burt Hummel accompany the group out west as chaperones to witness the performance dedicated in Finn’s honor in person.
Unlike prior competitions, the New Directions have a new and incredibly fierce competition in “Throat Explosion.” With Jean-Baptiste (Skylar Astin) at the helm of this show choir group, are they poised to take the completion over?
Baptiste is such an intimidating performer that he gets Blaine’s psyche completely out of whack. So none other than, Sam Evans takes the group over thanks to some encouragement from Mr. Shue. Who would not want to be under the leadership of the charismatic White Chocolate? However, his leadership is endangered when Sam can’t find one of his lucky charms! What else can go wrong?
Maybe Burt and Carole can steer this group back into the right frame of mind. The husband and wife deliver much needed words of encouragement, which are bound to be full of emotion. Their hope is to sharing the experience of Nationals with Finn’s friends in the hopefulness it might get back warm memories of their son.
What would a competition be without a little Ryder, Marley, and Jake drama? Ryder discovers that Marley has stopped writing music and plans on quitting the glee club. Thanks to the help of Jake, Ryder, and a mystery former glee club member, the trio hopes to talk Marley out of her decision.
Such an action packed Nationals episode! Who doesn’t want to wait until March 11th
? Have no fear, Glee
thankfully returns for our viewing pleasure February 25th
on a new night. Make sure you tune in and tell us what you think!
We also know that the following songs are going to be featured in the episode, to air March 11: “I Love LA,” by Randy Newman, to be performed by Blaine, Will and Sam. “Mr. Roboto” by Styx, to be sung by Throat Explosion, with the John-Baptiste led group also singing One Republic’s “Counting Stars.”
The songs that New Directions will sing to try and bring home that first place trophy again are Boston’s “More Than a Feeling,” Neil Diamond’s “America” and “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” by U2.
