Dear ‘Glee,’ Our Lives Will Suck Without You After Tonight
Well, it’s about time. William McKinley High’s show choir New Directions is finally off to belt it out against the competition in tonight’s aptly-titled Glee episode “Sectionals.” Of course, anyeuphoric buzz fans of the show will get from watching the series’ key plot points wrapping up—and yes, there will be some major wrapping up (read on!)—will be tainted by the fact that Glee is going on hiatus until April 2010.
So what are viewers in for tonight?
E! Online recently asked Cory Monteith if his character Finn finds out that Quinn is pregnant with Puck’s baby in the finale. The actor replied, “Yes, he does.”
“The plotlines you may have felt need resolution will be resolved,” Monteith also allowed. “There is a lot of resolution in ‘Sectionals’.”
Here’s hoping Artie and Tina finally get to smooching, then. And that Emma snaps out of it and decides to call off her marriage with Coach Tanaka.
Another source tells E! “there are two show-stopping solos that will make the devil run home and call his mama.” Hmmm. “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going,” “Don’t Rain On My Parade,” “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” and “My Life Would Suck Without You” are all cued up for tonight. They’re also the last four songs that appear on the just-released Glee—The Music, Vol. 2 soundtrack (which is currently #1 on iTunes).
And for those in deep anguish over the impending four-month absence of the FOX musical comedy program, at least the Glee Season One, Vol. One: Road To Sectionals DVD will be there to ease the pain; it hits shelves on December 29.
And here’s something we might be able to look forward to when the show returns next spring: Idina Menzel is in talks to follow in the diva-like footsteps of her onetime Wicked co-star Kristen Chenoweth by appearing the hit series.
