So far when it comes to the “Glee” episode “Bash” most of what we have heard suggests that the story is going to be all about Kurt Hummel attacked while on the streets of New York City. It’s a sad lesson that while he may be in an environment that can at times be more accepting, that is not always the case.
What we really hand’t heard before now is what some of the other stories are going to be for this episode, and they include some big ones. We’re going to find out whether or not Rachel Berry can stay at NYADA while also doing “Funny Girl,” and there will also be some big storylines when it comes to Sam and Mercedes getting closer while now being roommates.
You can check out this extended synopsis below, which also makes it clearer why Whoopi Goldberg is returning as Carmen:
“With opening night of Funny Girl rapidly approaching – and despite the producer’s concerns – Rachel is granted one night off of rehearsals so she can complete her NYADA ‘Midwinter Critique’ for the much feared and revered Carmen Tibideaux. When her performance doesn’t go quite as planned, Rachel finds herself facing an important decision that pits her education against her career. After the close proximity of Sam and Mercedes’ living arrangements leads to the seemingly inevitable hook-up, he tries once again to rekindle their romance. But Mercedes – despite her clear attraction to Sam – hesitates, worried about how dating (as one of her backup singers puts it) ‘a white, unemployed dude she met in her high school Glee Club’ may adversely affect her public image … Meanwhile, Kurt gets a harsh lesson in the difference between life in high school and in the real world when he butts up against an all-too-familiar enemy, but he makes an important realization about himself in the process.”
Sounds exciting, right? It’s definitely more focused than the show was at times during season 4, and it proves yet again that the stage is set for “Glee” to continue improving now that it has trimmed down the story and given you specific characters to focus on again rather than an army of faces.
