In last night's Season 5 premiere of Glee, it was all about the Beatles. And you know what that means, "All you need is love." And boy, with the passing Cory Monteith our Gleeks sure needed it. Let's recap, shall we?
Schuester announced this week's, actually two-week, assignment is the music of the Beatles. The collection of songs fits nicely with the many storylines currently happening.
The tragic passing of Cory Monteith will result in a tribute episode that will air October 10.
Sue is back on top
I knew Sue couldn't stay away from McKinley for long. While I did enjoy her stint as an exercise instructor, Sue is now principal of McKinley High, and folks, that's a good thing. (Sorry Figgins, about that autographed copy of Mein Kampf.)
As interim principal, she's first cracking down on Will and Roz. She tells the two that they better get New Directions and the Cheerios national championships or face her wrath.
Rachel "Funny Girl" Update
Rachel is still in the running for her role in Funny Girl. (Shout out to Peter Facinelli who made a cameo.) But will Claire Danes steal the role instead? Side note: Hey, isn't Claire Danes a tad old to be competing against Rachel? Just sayin'.
By the way, it's good to see Rachel and Santana toiling as waitresses. A lot of performers are servers while waiting for their big break in the entertainment business. So kudos to Glee for adding a dash of realism.
Kitty And Artie Sitting In A Tree
Initially, Kitty wanted to keep her relationship on the down-low thank to "mean girl Santana 2.0's" taunts. Later though, after some Tina intervention, Kitty and Artie finally made their relationship public. Did you notice, since hooking up with Kitty, that Artie has scored quite the GQ makeover?
TIna's Still A Spaz
Last season Tina almost violated a cough-syruped up Blaine with Vick's Vapor rub. And this season she's still "off-center." But thankfully, Miss Cohen-Chang is no longer fixated on Blaine. With Brittany out of the picture, she's moved onto Sam, selecting him as her new insta-prom date. God help poor Sam.
Blurt Are Together Again
After a roller coaster season 4, Kurt and Blaine have reunited. And as you may recall, Burt wasn't happy about Blaine's plans to propose, and neither was Kurt. In fact, Burt commented that Kurt looked like he was being driven to his execution instead of a joyous proposal.
Ugh this is why one should never propose in public. Too much pressure and often a forced "yes." Hmm will Kurt end up backing out of the proposal at some point?
The head of the Haverbrook School for the Deaf show choir exclaiming, "Oh God, It's those McKinley nerds." Haha.
Kurt:"I'm Goldie, of course."
Sue: "You'll be forced to build creepy relationships with teenagers on your own time."
Sue: "Janitor Figgins, I think has a quiet dignity to it."
Kitty: "What if we go out, but do it on the down-low, you know, like secretly gay conservatives do?"
"Drive My Car"
"Got to Get You Into My Life"
"All You Need Is Love/He Loves You"
"You've Got to Hide Your Love Away"
"Hard Day's Night"
"I Saw Her Standing There"
Gleeks, next week it's part two of the Beatles, and we get to see just how cut throat the prom king and queen competition will get. See you then!
