Just in case you had even the tiniest bit of doubt for whatever reason that “Glee” season 5 wasn’t going to start things off with a two-part tribute episode to the Beatles, the first two titles for the fall have pretty much confirmed it, starting with the September 26 premiere: “Love, Love, Love.”
It’s not the most descriptive title out there, is it? The real thing to note here is that it is a Kurt-and-Blane-heavy episode based on the information that is out there, and it’s not exactly jaw-dropping news that they would receive top billing. You should expect some change to take place during the hour, but don’t hype yourself up that Chris Colfer’s character is suddenly going to say “yes” to a proposal from a guy he’s not even dating at the moment.
Meanwhile, the title for the October 3 follow-up is also very Beatles-specific in “Tina in the Sky with Diamonds.” Tina gets top-billing in something! She had a bit of a strange year in season 4, largely courtesy of that “I love Blaine” storyline that is probably somewhat realistic (given that these sort of things do happen), but also extremely awkward since you knew that she was just spinning her wheels. Maybe this episode will allow her an opportunity to actually plan for her future, or find a love interest who is capable of actually loving her back.
These two episodes will carry into the Cory Monteith tribute episode, which is currently-untitled (at least to the public) and will be the most emotional hour ever created for the show. That is one episode that we may not want to know much about in advance, given that much of the feeling may come from the surprise.
There have been multiple castings announced for “Glee” this week already, and we’re sure that there are going to be a few more on the way soon. Stay tuned.
