As you’ve no doubt heard by now, the next new episode of Glee (episode 3, “Asian F”) will delve deeper into Harry Shum, Jr.’s character, Mike Chang and his relationship with his parents. Harry sheds some more light on how the episode will go down – and if we might be seeing Mr. and Mrs. Chang more in the future:
“You get to meet the parents, and you see them go head to head a little bit. When you finally meet them, you get a sense of Mike Chang’s home life and the pressure he has with school. We’re diving deeper into his life. I think the storyline definitely calls for that. You will see the parents time and time again.”
I don’t know about you guys, but I am so ready for a “Mike Chang heavy” episode. Let’s put his series regular status to work already!
Mike’s not the only one with some heavy-duty storylines, Mark Salling says more Puck plots will definitely be popping up:
“You’re still going to see the Puck you’ve known over seasons one and two, but you will always see another side to him, [which] I enjoyed playing.”
After his adorable Beth-related scene with Idina Menzel (Shelby Corcoran) in this week’s “I Am Unicorn”, this is also something I’ll be looking forward to.
- Just when you thought auditioning for the lead in the school musical would be enough to throw Kurt and Blaine’s relationship out of whack, Ryan Murphy & co. throw us another Klaine curveball: a love triangle. A dude distraction for Blaine will be introduced during episode 5 of season 3 in the form of a gay Warbler from Dalton Academy – the recurring role of Sebastian to be played by stage actor Grant Gustin. Apparently his character is everything Kurt isn’t, so it will be very interesting indeed to see just how Blaine reacts to this new Glee “villain”.
- Wait a sec, villain? Whatever happened to Karofsky? Don’t worry, Dave will be back too (and let’s hope for Kurt’s sake it will be to terrorize Finn this time). Actor Max Adler tells us a little bit about his character’s reappearance: “I can’t say too much. Karofsky is back, and it’s something I don’t think you’ll expect. You’ll see him at a place that I don’t think anybody would really guess.” Gay bar?
- Matthew Morrison (a.k.a. Will Schuester) will be taking on more than just the Schuester this season, he’s also set to direct an episode – episode 8 – to air sometime in November.
Okay Klaine fans, time to vent in the comments. What do you think’s going to happen with Warbler Sebastian? And I won’t leave my fellow Harry Shum/Mike Chang fans out of the mix, who else is uber excited for “Asian F”?
