There are only five Glee episodes left, and they seem to be an eventful five episodes. A lot seems to be happening nearing the end of Glee’s fourth season, and we know that because creator Ryan Murphy told us himself.
In a quick question and answer session on Twitter, Murphy teased a lot of what fans can expect to see happen on the show. But WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?!
Murphy has done a lot of Q&A’s on twitter. He has yet to tease without pleasing, so all this brand new information is exciting. Looks like the final episodes of Glee are going to be a whirlwind of relationships, self discovery (Rachel has an upcoming audition for Funny Girl), and good music. Yep, Glee is doing what it does best – another tribute episode, and a tribute to someone definitely worth paying homage to.
Murphy has given us a little bit of insight on the future of Santana, old graduates, Klaine, and an upcoming wedding. I am a bundle of feelings right now.
Here are the 7 important things Ryan Murphy revealed
1) Santana has a hot new love interest
2) Santana has an important self discovery plot line coming up
3) Hope for Klaine in the future?
4) Scratch that…is Klaine getting married? I’m sorry, WHAT? (Ryan tweeted in a Q&A earlier this year Kurt will be married by the time he is 21) Read more…
Spoiler aside, our hearts broke last Thursday when Glee favourites Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine (Darren Criss) broke up after Blaine admitted to cheating when he felt lonely and hurt.
But while it may all seem like bad news in this fandom, Criss insists that there is some good out of the sad storyline. In fact, he wants to thank the fans.
In a heartfelt letter posted on his Facebook page, Criss expressed his appreciation at how much support he got for playing one of the show’s breakout stars. Letting us in on his early days of singing in cafes and open mic nights, he said being cast on Glee changed his life.
In fact, he says he owes much of this success to social media.
“We live in an unprecedented age of social connectivity, and I am happy to say that none of you have failed to take full advantage of that. Don’t think I’m not aware of how active the fandom is, or how much impact it has,” he wrote. “Remember: Not only am I fan myself, but I do have an internet connection. I see the gifs, I see the fanfics, I see the memes, and it’s all amazing stuff. Though I haven’t met the majority of you, it’s a real thrill to know that many of your lives have come together on behalf of mine.”
What’s even more humbling about this letter, is the fact that Criss revealed that a certain Katy Perry song was covered once more to thank his supporters.
So sweet and down to earth. There’s honestly nothing better than an beautiful encore performance.
Cooper Anderson’s horrible audition tape for Transformers has finally been leaked and it’s just as horrible as I hoped. If you missed this week’s episode of Glee, Matt Bomer guest starred as conceited actor Cooper Anderson, who is also Blaine’s older rival brother.
On Glee, Cooper Anderson’s audition for Transformers was cancelled at the last minute because the producers decided to go in another direction (read: they found someone who doesn’t have acting skills on par with Joey on Friends). Now, we finally get to see the hypothetical audition tape for the role and it includes a cameo from Darren Criss (Blaine).
It also proves that Matt Bomer is ridiculously good looking along with being funny. That is so unfair.

Last night’s return of Glee proved Ryan Murphy’s unwillingness to kill any characters from the hit show so far. After a 7-week hiatus, I expected there would have been some sort of shocking revelation, either Quinn’s sudden death or the end of Finchel as we know it (even though I admit, I wouldn’t be crying tears of joy about this).
It might seem crazy, but I was overly excited to learn more about Sue’s pregnancy and discover the sex of her little monster. It was also much appreciated to get a glimpse of Blaine’s older, obnoxious, actor brother Cooper Anderson (Matt Bomer). Was it just me, or did anyone else notice the how close his name resembles that of Anderson Cooper? And did anyone else wish they’d been Sue and had Bomer take a look at their breasts before signing them? Oh well, a girl can dream can’t she?
Besides the obvious, here are five things I learned from last night’s episode “Big Brother.”
1) Broadway is apparently dead and in order to become a big name Hollywood actor, according to Mr. Anderson, one must literally point and yell whenever they read lines. He also advises the gleeks to think of a roast beef sandwich when working with a fellow cast mate to distract yourself from making eye contact with them. Somehow they buy it.
2) Blaine and Cooper really love each other and are more than just brothers, they are friends. After taking constant criticism from his older bro, Blaine lashes out at him and they recover by singing Gotye. Ummm… Blaine, do you not see how much more talented you are than your brother? Cooper mentions how jealous he is of his younger bro’s talents. I guess that’s why they call it tough love or is it in brotherly love?
As if I wasn’t excited enough for Glee’s return on April 10, they had to go and tease one of the upcoming songs and it’s a good one: Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know.” When I first saw the clip I was worried that this dud was Blaine’s ex-boyfriend or something, which would be a major punch in the gut to Kurt. Not to worry though, the scene features White Collar’s Matt Bomer as Blaine’s seemingly estranged older brother. The duet also includes flashbacks to their past.
Apparently the song selection played a role in Bomer agreeing to do the show, as he told TVLine: ”I had heard the Gotye song and I asked [series co-creator] Ryan [Murphy] if he ever thought of using that as a duet on the show. And he said he had. And then a week later I got a text from him asking me if I wanted to come on the show to sing it.”
Perez Hilton has revealed that the character of Blaine, an openly gay senior played by Darren Criss, is going to have “an encounter with a pivotal member of the opposite gender [in an upcoming episode] … afterwards, he’s forced to consider the possibility that he swings both ways,” according to numerous sources.
If this is true, the show’s decision is a highly contentious one. Darren Criss, who is straight in real life, has caught the attention of many female fans this season and is considered a heartthrob amongst the Glee fan community. Many are accusing Glee writers of making Blaine bi simply to cater to and profit off of Darren’s large female fanbase.
We for one see this as a huge cop-out and a MASSIVE money grab! Blaine is a very confident and self-assured gay boy and it’s been suggested that he has quite a bit of experience under his belt – it doesn’t seem in his character to make him fool around at this point. Though Glee is such a poorly written show in the first place and creator Ryan Murphy is such a massive douchenozzle that it really doesn’t surprise us.
This was the final straw for us. We’re thinking (read:hoping) that Glee’s episodes are numbered at this point.
