“Glee’s” Beatles tribute is a rare one in that it is going to last for two episodes, and following up the season premiere entitled “Love, Love, Love,” we’re going to shift directly into yet another prom episode for the show. Clearly, there has been a pretty notable one on the show in the past, and we will hopefully not be forced to bear witness to another situation of deliberate humiliation.
This one instead sounds a little bit more like a massive ego trip for Jenna Ushkowitz’s Tina, at least judging from the episode’s title in “Tina in the Sky with Diamonds.” Not only is this character going to develop a little bit of an ego after learning that she has a key nomination for Prom Queen, but the action / drama is also going to carry over to New York City. Based on what we are hearing now, Lea Michele and Naya Rivera may be taking on very different roles for Rachel and Santana as they have to sing for a living at a diner of all places:
“As Beatlemania continues at McKinley, it’s time for the students to vote for prom queen and king. When Tina receives a nomination, she takes on a fierce attitude that alienates her biggest supporters. Meanwhile, Rachel adjusts to a new attitude of her own, as she and Santana work at a Broadway diner to make ends meet.”
This story does at least help to answer the question as to how in the world some of these characters are living in New York, and we wonder whether this means bad news for Rachel and “Funny Girl.” Our answer? Not necessarily. Even if she moves on to the next phase of casting, she still has to make money until that time.
The only surprise here is that despite being confirmed to perform “Here Comes the Sun” with Santana, Demi Lovato is not listed on the press release. However, we learned last year that Fox is pretty bad about having their cast list actually reflect the people in the episode, so we would not read much into it.
Take a look at the sneak peek here if you’re not excited enough for the new “Glee” season, as it focuses primarily on the New Directions students getting their assignments.
