Okay, I've got good news and bad news (and you're probably rolling your eyes with that one - I know, totally uncool). But I'm going to go ahead and run with it anyway. Bad news first?
The bad news is...Glee actually won't be returning until April 19, rather than the original April 12 return air date we were expecting (but hey, it coincides perfectly with the Warblers CD release). The good news (and there's lots to this good news) is...the return episode will be an extra-special long 90-minute episode (more than likely, don't hold me to that), featuring another Lady Gaga tribute!
"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."
Check out the details of that, and more upcoming spoilers, down below:
- The episode will pay tribute not only to Lady Gaga but to bully Dave Karofsky - and, honoring actor Max Adler's wish to see Karofsky perform a number (and namely, this particular number), we'll get to see none other than him perform "Born This Way".
- The theme of course won't just revolve around Karofsky, it will be carried through to all our other favorite Gleeks as the question of self-esteem (especially in the form of body image) arises: Lauren Zizes will campaign for prom queen (give Quinn a run for her money? Haha), and Rachel will contemplate a nose job (inspired I'm sure by Lea Michele's own life).
- It has yet to be confirmed one-hundred percent by FOX, but the 90-minute episode extension is because of a couple extra numbers being added to the set list - though we're not yet sure if those will also be more Gaga songs to follow in the footsteps of "Poker Face" and "Bad Romance".
- Here's a little something unrelated to the return Lady Gaga tribute but kind of similar, content-wise - there's a rumor that Sam will be kicked out of his house because he's gay (what?!). But, the part of that rumor that IS true is that we'll get to see some of Sam's home life in an upcoming episode called, "Rumors" (which I'm guessing coincides with seeing Sam's little bro and sis). The reason for this plot line? Suspicious that Quinn is cheating on him with Sam, Finn goes on a stakeout with Rachel - at Sam's house. Finchels, rejoice.
