Last season’s finale of Glee ended with Blaine (Darren Criss) contemplating proposing to soul mate Kurt (Chris Colfer). Well, we don’t know if he goes through with it or not, but based on this exclusive photo from the Sept. 26 premiere, the pair are getting along just fine.
But, Criss says, this is not Kurt accepting Blaine’s hand in marriage; he’s merely agreeing to date the former Warbler again. Blaine still pulls out all the stops for the wooing with a marching band accompanying him on The Beatles’ “Got to Get You Into My Life” (the two-part premiere is a tribute to the iconic British band). “Well, Glee never skimps,” Criss says of the elaborate number. “A simple question is not going to escape an elaborate gesture on Glee, that’s for sure.” What can Criss say about a potential Klaine engagement? Not much. Teases the actor: “There’s definitely going to be an answer to what Blaine is going to do within the first two episodes.”
According to an extended promo for Glee‘s two-part Beatles tribute, fans can expect a Fab Four history lesson — and a surprising new flirtation.
Before Glee pays tribute to late star Cory Monteith on Oct. 10, the show’s first two episodes will pay tribute of a different sort, with a two-part all-Beatles premiere. Now, we have our first look at the episode — and our first listen, as a group performance of “All You Need Is Love” plays over the 30-second spot.

Thursday nights on Fox will be all about Demi.
Demi Lovato will be joining the cast of Glee this season, according to star Lea Michele, who just tweeted, “Such amazing news that two of my very best friends are going to be on #Glee this year! @ddlovato & @PhoebeStrole! Thank you @MrRPMurphy!”
Demi Lovato is rumored to play Dani, a NYC-based struggling artist friend of Rachel and Santana’s who will regularly appear with Adam Lambert’s incoming character, according to TVLine, who reported Lovato was in talks. The current X Factor judge — now known mostly for her music — was an actress on the Disney Channel show Sonny with a Chance.
Theater fans may be more excited for the announcement about Phoebe Strole. The Broadway vet was in the original cast of Spring Awakening with Michele. She also was in the cult fav Hamlet 2 as well as played a pregnant teen in one episode of 30 Rock.
Glee returns with Season 5 on Thursday, Sept. 26.
Despite an upbeat teaser trailer for Glee‘s fifth season, fans aren’t quite sure what to expect from a season without Cory Monteith’s Finn Hudson.
But we do know at least one thing: The season’s third episode will be a memorial for Monteith. What that episode will hold or how it will fit into the Glee universe is yet to be determined, but Glee‘s own Jane Lynch took to Twitter today after reading the script for the memorial episode, calling it the “most beautiful thing.”

Finn Hudson won’t die of a drug overdose, Glee creator Ryan Murphy announced Thursday via an interview with Deadline.
Murphy shared that the Glee crew has been hard at work figuring out how to write Finn Hudson out of the show. As was previously reported, Murphy shared that the first two episodes of the Fox dramedy will be a long-in-the-works Beatles tribute that only needed some slight reworking in the wake of this tragedy.
The third episode of the season will be the memorial episode for Cory Monteith/Finn Hudson. “There were a lot of things that we had to decide — how are we going to deal with his death?” Murphy said. “At one point, we were going to have his character die after an accidental drug overdose — that was something we had considered. But we have decided that we’re not going to have him pass from that. Basically, what we’re doing in the episode is we are not telling you yet, or maybe not at all, how that character died. The idea being, how somebody died is interesting and maybe morbid, but we say very early on in the episode, ‘This episode is about a celebration of that character’s life.’ That might be weird for some people, but it felt really exploitative to do it any other way.” READ FULL STORY
Mike O’Malley talked about the passing of his Glee co-star Cory Monteith while promoting his new NBC sitcom Welcome to the Family on Saturday.
O’Malley plays Monteith’s stepfather Burt Hummel on the Fox series, and recalled one searing scene in which Finn (Monteith) used a homophobic slur.
“I had many of my scenes on Glee usually with either Chris [Colfer] or Cory and I think I had what was probably the toughest scene I’ve ever acted in my career as an actor opposite him,” O’Malley said. “I had to throw his character, Finn, out of the house because of a slur he used. It was remarkable to me when we were shooting that scene over and over the depth of emotion he was able to portray … the sorrow, the shame…”
O’Malley called Finn the fictional quarterback on the show and a very real quarterback for the cast behind the scenes. “He was an incredibly warm guy, a guy who was welcoming to everyone who came on that show … he was a very hard-working actor. I loved working with him, he was a great guy. I miss him very much.”
O’Malley said he wasn’t sure if he was going to be a part of the Glee episode next season honoring Finn, but said he hopes he will. “Burt is a very important role to me, it’s been a great part and I’ve said to all those guys, ‘I’ll work early in the morning, late at night, Saturday, Sunday, whatever I need to do to participate and continue to be on that show honoring Cory and his passing and that character.”
