Glee’s highly anticipated fifth season premiere is just three weeks away and with all the new information about the episode coming out I’d say it’s safe to say that Gleeks are counting down the days until the episode airs. This season’s premiere is a special one though as it’s the first of a two-part Beatle’s tribute!
The first episode is titled “Love, Love, Love”. It looks like the episode will be filled with plenty of surprises.
The synopsis of the first episode says: “The New Directions are back in action and take on their biggest assignment yet: The Beatles! As Will enlists the kids to pay homage to the classic catalog from the Fab Four, Blaine and Kurt attempt to answer questions about their future together. Meanwhile, Rachel’s dreams of Broadway go in an unanticipated direction.”
The second episode of the season and second part of the Beatles Tribute is called “Tina in the Sky with Diamonds.” It looks to be focused on Tina and her quest to be prom queen based on the synopsis.
"It’s time for the students to vote for prom queen and king, but when Tina receives a nomination, she takes on a fierce attitude that alienates her biggest supporters. Meanwhile, Rachel adjusts to a new attitude of her own as she and Santana work at a Broadway diner to make ends meet."
We’ve also learned PLENTY of more juiciness from the trailer, especially the newest one that was released today! So here’s a quick wrap-up of what we know now!
- Kurt and Blaine will share smooch sometime during the episode.
- Looks like former Principal Figgins is now Janitor Figgins.
- The new principal looks to be none other than a certain Sue Sylvester.
