There are ways in which you could look at “New Directions” as a series finale of sorts for “Glee,” given that the club, the sole reason that the show existed in the first place, is over. But then again, you could have said that the first graduation also had this same sort of sentimental feel. This show has had so many “looking back” montages that you would think at times that this is an awards show.
So moving forward, it’s almost an entirely new show in “New New York.” The graduated characters have moved, it has been three months since the last episode, and Rachel Berry is well on her way to having a future on the big stage. Want to know more? In case you haven’t seen it yet, take a look at the synopsis below:
“A few months after the end of the glee club, New Directions alumni are adjusting to their new lives in the Big Apple: Blaine and Sam have moved in with Kurt, while Artie experiences difficulties navigating the mean streets of Manhattan. Also, Rachel gets accustomed to being a Broadway star, and Mercedes (guest star Amber Riley) moves to New York to work on her album.”
Adam Lambert is going to be back again for another appearance as Starchild in this episode, which proves that his friendship has survived the test of time even though more McKinley graduates have moved to the big city. We also know now why it is unlikely to see Santana or Brittany during this hour, as they are going to be off on some sort of adventure together.
