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

by 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."

Wow, so they really are just recycling all the plots from season 1. They already did this. In Mash up. So far this season is like season 1, exept awful. The Substitute was really just Rhodes not taken, the sectionals episodes had the same big secret reveal and breakup that the first sectionals had.. Out of ideas already glee?

Glee Quotes

You know, a great big fat person once stood on this stage and told a group of a dozen or so nerds in hideous disco outfits that glee, by its very definition, is about opening yourself up to joy. Now it's no secret that for a long time I thought that was a load of hooey. As far as I could see the glee club was nothing but a place where a bunch of cowardly losers go to sing their troubles away and delude themselves into thinking that they live in a world that cares one iota about their hopes and dreams, totally divorced from the harsh reality that in the real world there's not much more to hope for than disappointment, heartbreak, and failure. And you know what. I was exactly right. Thats exactly what glee club is. But I was wrong about the cowardly part. What I finally realized, now that I'm well into my late thirties, it takes a lot of bravery to look around you and see the world not as it is but as it should be. A world where the quarterback becomes best friends with the gay kid, and the girl with the big nose ends up on Broadway. Finding the courage to open up your heart and sing about it. That's what glee club is. And for the longest time I thought that was silly, and now I think it's just about the bravest thing that anyone could do.

Sue

[to Finn] You know, I don't really know what's going to happen between us, but I know that you used to be the guy that would make me feel like the most special girl in the whole world, and it doesn't feel that way anymore. Now it just feels sad and confusing. And the worst part is that it doesn't even feel that bad anymore.
