Glee‘s April 26 episode is so big, it won’t even fit in its normal time slot. Reports say that the ep, titled “Born This Way” — which, incidentally, concludes with a rousing performance of Lady Gaga’s single, may be expanded to 90 minutes. More details (and a brand new Warblers tune!) below.
In the episode, the kids deal with self-acceptance issues, such as Lauren running for prom queen and Rachel considering a nose job. It was also mentioned by show creator Ryan Murphy that this episode may involve Kurt’s bully, Karofsky, finally taking a step toward accepting his sexuality.
“This show is by nature optimistic and I think a character like Karofsky could turn to booze or pills or alcohol and kill themselves or do something dark,” he told Entertainment Weekly back in January. “But I also love Max and I love that character and I sorta want that character to have a happy ending. So I don’t really know what that’s going to be, but I do know we’re going to do a whole episode that’s about [Gaga’s ‘Born This Way’].”
Instead of cutting anything out of the episode, producers want to add two more musical numbers and make this a super-sized episode. May we suggest simply having The Warblers sing two more songs?
Check out Darren Criss and his merry men singing “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy”. (Short answer: yes.)
