Several TV peeps saw “Yes/No” on Friday and had a lot to say about what is sure to be an epic episode. I am trying my hardest to stay away from spoilers so I’m just going to post links to the articles. From what I’ve heard, they pretty much give everything away. So…click at your own risk.
Ricky Martin was going to appear on Glee this winteras McKinley High’s new Spanish teacher. But now EW has even more exciting news for Latin music fans: A source exclusively tells EW that pop superstar Gloria Estefan is currently in negotiations to play…
Last night, we met Santana’s grandmother, who did not approve of her granddaughter’s lesbian lifestyle. But we haven’t heard from her parents, who Santana claimed were supportive of their daughter’s coming out. Gleeks should expect to see Gloria in the same episode as Martin in January. Our source tells us that the entire cast is “really really big fans of hers and we love her music and her husband’s music.” In fact, the plan is for the episode is to feature some of Estefan’s own music as well as some other bilingual tunes.
Question: I hear there are some great Finn/Santana scenes coming up on Glee. I’m intrigued! What does this storyline entail? — Kristen
Ausiello: Think of it as a Christmas miracle. In the show’s holiday episode, the two have a great scene in which they bury the hatchet for good. (Or at least for good for now.) When he asks her to help him pick out a present for Rachel, she talks him out of a necklace (a gift she claims sends the wrong message) and into a pair of earrings. Oh, and speaking of the Christmas ep: As Lea Michelle revealed on Twitter this week, the hour will pay homage to the classic (and ubercheesy) holiday specials of the ’60s, complete with classic Yuletide scenes, an over-the-top announcer and way-over-the-top costumes (e.g. Rory as Itchy the Christmas Elf).
Don’t press play if you want to be surprised on Tuesday. Otherwise, watch The Warblers perform “Uptown Girl” below!

E! was one of the few lucky groups who got to see a screener of next week’s Glee. Take a look at what lies ahead. *Note: minor spoilers below.
What? What’s that you say? You used to watch but it fell off your DVR schedule? Or you never really thought it was your thing?
Well then, you especially better watch. ‘Cause I just got my hands on a screener for this Tuesday’s episode (through supersecret channels…Shhhh) and can tell you without any hesitation: It is arguably the best episode of Glee, not just this season but in the history of the series.
Yeah, you heard me.
Why? Here’s the scoop…
Glee has completely found its heart again. And then some.
As you fans know, Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and the cast has been telling us for months that Glee is returning to its roots, focusing on the core characters instead of guest stars, and getting back to the emotional crux that made many of us fall in love with the show in the first place.
Well, get ready to fall again. This Tuesday’s episode, “Asian F,” not only presents one of the best storylines for fan-favorite underdog character Mike Chang (Harry Shum Jr.), it also presents the best work we’ve seen yet from Amber Riley, Heather Morris, Lea Michele, Matthew Morrison and Jayma Mays. And even better, some of you fans will be elated to hear that Mr. Schuester and Rachel are once again likable and relatable. (So long, cocky manwhore and grating diva!)
The storylines are tight, grounded, completely believable and emotionally gripping. The musical numbers are mind-blowingly good and introduced through organic, and yet unexpected, ways.
Oh yeah, and you will cry.
Without giving too much away, here’s a little scoop on what you can expect from Tuesday’s Glee:
- An awesome Heather Morris number: “Run the World (Girls).” (You may feel an uncontrollable urge to get up and dance.)
- Harry Shum Jr.’s first solo. It’ll blow you away! He is amazing in this episode, and proves himself fully worthy as a full-fledged series regular. Also, there’s a scene with his mom that will make you cry.
- The best Amber Riley performance ever, as she seeks to prove she’s a lead in her West Side Story audition.
- A “Maria-Off” between Rachel and Mercedes that “we’ll be talking about forever,” according to Kurt.
- My favorite-ever Will and Emma scene toward the end of the episode. (Bring Kleenex.) It will bring you to your knees.
- A “supremacist” storyline that will make you laugh…then cry.
- A nod to The Glee Project. (There are auditions for the school play, you know!)
- A Mercedes twist that changes the course of the season.
Coach Bieste perhaps sums up this episode best: Prepare to be “emotionally pancaked.”
Can you tell I didn’t hate it? Nahhh…
It is VERY difficult to run a Glee blog and NOT see the spoilers. I for one, don’t want to know much about the episode before it airs. I knew everything about every episode last season and I didn’t enjoy the show as much. Soooo, this season I’m trying to stay spoiler-free. Or at the very least, spoiler-light. But, I know there are some of you that are absolutely DYING to see something so…here you go. The following links will take you to articles that have mega spoilers and some even include clips from Tuesday’s premiere. Enjoy!
Holy Glee Spoilers! Find Out Who Damian Is Shacking Up With, Whose Mom Is Coming and More!
“Every musical blonde in the world is coming out of the woodwork for it!”
This is what a rock-solid Glee source tells me about the latest guest-starring role they are currently casting.
So who is it? And when will Glee Project winners Damian McGinty and Samuel Larsen join the show, and what will they be playing? Get ready for an explosion of Glee “spoilerocity,” ’cause sources just told me exclusively:
1. Damian Is Coming! Damian will be the first winner to appear on the Glee mothership. He plays an exchange student named Rory, and will show up in episode four. He will be staying with…wait for it…Brittany’s (Heather Morris) family! I’m told Santana is decidedly not pleased about this. Think of all the jokes that will come from Brittany not being able to understand his accent.
2. They Are Currently Casting Brittany’s Mother! What kind of woman has spawned the awesomeness (and cluelessness) that is Brittany S. Pierce? We will find out this season! Naturally, with Damian shacking up with the Pierces, we’ll be seeing Brittany’s home life. And given that Brittany probably has no clue where Northern Ireland is, nor what foreign language Damian is speaking, you can expect some serious comedic gold to come from this storyline.
3. Samuel Also Is Coming—But Later! Samuel Larsen, the other Project winner, will probably make his debut at the end of the fall semester…somewhere around episode nine from what I hear. Part of the reason for this delay is that producers want to focus more on the regulars’ stories this year. There are no guest stars in the first nine episodes—just lots of focus on the characters you already know and love. Hooray!
