Glee Super Bowl Scoop: "It's a Big One"

at . Comments

Simply put, when asked at this week's Television Critic's Association press tour, Chris Colfer said of the upcoming Glee Super Bowl episode: "It's a big one."

No kidding. One scene reportedly required the presence of two ambulances on stand-by, while sources confirm it was the most expensive episode to shoot. By far.

Glee Covers Thriller

What does this mean fans should expect on the night of February 6? An elaborate performance of Michael Jackson's "Thriller," as seen here, along with a cover of Katy Perry's "California Gurls." Both will involve the use of pyrotechnics.

Storyline-wise, Jane Lynch provided the following spoiler:

"My star Cheerios leave me for the Glee club. I make them choose: You either come with me and do this routine, or stay here and do the half-time routine with the glee club. They choose the glee club, so I don't have a team and I have to forfeit Nationals. That's why Katie Couric interviews me as the year's biggest loser."

This development will actually lead to Sue joining New Directions during a future episode, where she'll take part in a number set to a My Chemical Romance song. But can we trust her intentions? Unlikely, Lynch teases:

"She's like Glenn Close in Damages. You never know where she's coming from."

Glee Quotes

I had sex with you because you got me drunk on wine coolers and I felt fat that day. But it was a mistake.

Quinn [to Puck]

We met right here. I took this man's hand and we ran down that hallway. Those of you who know me know I'm not in the habit of taking the hands of people I've never met before, but I think that my soul knew something that my body and my mind didn't know yet. It knew that our hands were meant to hold each other, fearlessly and forever. Which is why it's never really felt like I've been getting to know you. It's always felt like I was remembering you from something. As if in every lifetime that you and I have ever lived we've chosen to come back and find each other and fall in love all over again, over and over, for all eternity. And I just feel so lucky that I found you so soon in this lifetime because all I want to do, all I've ever wanted to do, is spend my life loving you. So, Kurt Hummel, my amazing friend, my one true love, will you marry me?
