On Glee Season 6 Episode 12, the New Directions' history is explored. Watch Glee online now to see how it all began!
Rachel, Kurt, Artie, Mercedes, and Tina weren't friends prior to the beginning of the New Directions. Well, Artie and Tina were, but they weren't already a group. Rachel and Kurt met at lunch, Tina and Artie joined the New Directions on a dare, and Kurt urged Mercedes to audition when he asked for her help performing. Kurt joined because his father wanted him to join a team. Rachel wanted to be a star.
Terri Schuester was never pleased with Will's decision to take over the glee club as she thought it would prohibit her one day being able to decorate her house with the Pottery Barn catalog. Sue threatened to bring Will down after a pickup basketball game in the gym. Emma Pillsbury interceded on Will's behalf when she learned Will was considering leaving McKinley.
Mercedes and Kurt were unsure of Finn's motivation for joining the glee club, assuming he would bring along more jocks and some Cheerios who would replace or overshadow them. They decided to let him stay which led to the infamous "Don't Stop Believin'" performance.
On Glee Season 6 Episode 12, the series returns to 2009 and reveals how each of the original New Directions members came to join glee club.
