Gleeks, these Season 6 spoilers are something else. Well, actually, I retract that statement. There's probably nothing you haven't already prepared yourself for with this enigma of a show. But, while Glee and the powers that be like to take us out to a nice dinner and then never call us back, sometimes, sometimes, they surprise us with sweet gestures in order to make it up to us. Glee Season 6 may be the proverbial bouquet of roses at our doorsteps. Because yeah, we deserve it.
For instance, this season may not be what you were expecting, but that's not necessarily bad news. I think the writers did what they had to in order to try and make the show what it once was. I always like to give a little room for leeway for the direction that Glee took (after Season 4) because, as you all know, sadly some things were absolutely beyond their control.
So, onto the Season 6 spoilers. What's going down? A whole freakin' lot. According to E!Online, everyone's going back, back to Ohio, Ohio. Yes, even those who swore they never would *cough* Rachel Berry, what the hell happened?! *cough*.
MCKINLEY IS RISEN
I suppose it was our own faults to think that a show about a glee club could actually, truly leave the place where the glee club exists.
- More Jane Lynch.
- The writers seem to be more comfortable with the high school environment. New York never felt authentically Glee to me.
- Familiar faces: Beist is back, so is Kurt, Artie, Sam, Blaine, Mercedes, Santana (she's recurring) along with Karofsky, and Mr. Schue.
- It'll be refreshing to have everyone in one damn state.
- Not quite sure how they can make it any different than the original three seasons.
- Newbies. Ugh.
RACHEL TAKES THE REIGNS FROM MR. SCHUE
Yep, that's right y'all. The rumors are true. E!Online states it loud and clear, "Rachel is the new Mr. Schuester (Morrison) as she returns to Lima after failing as a TV actress. Struggling with her next move, Rachel decides to reinstate and lead the glee club at McKinley after discovering that Sue has banished the arts at the school."
- Rachel Berry is simultaneously the most frustrating and endearing character I've encountered in recent years and I'm glad we're going to see her at the forefront. She always did lead Glee Club unofficially, anyway, and who doesn't love this "controllist" being all well, in control.
- Massive potential for us to see some classic Berry attitude that's been lacking in the last few seasons.
- It's a sweet homage to what Ryan Murphy had originally planned to do with Finn's character.
- Rachel Berry was not destined for Lima. At least, not yet.
- With her failed TV pilot, it's another dream gone unrealized by the show that waxed poetic about making dreams come true. Side note: Yes, I know she was on Broadway. For all of two seconds.
- Now Rachel's a college dropout and a failed actress. What exactly is she falling back on? Do Glee Clubs pay that much? If so, someone give me a ring and I will drop everything to go run one myself.
THE CASTING OF GLEE CLUB N00BZ
E!Online elaborates saying, " Five new McKinley sophomores, including twin Cheerios Mason and Madison, who are both super-positive and weird, and football stud Spencer, who is "post-Glee gay." Rounding out the glee club will be the unconventionally pretty and drily funny Jane, who joins New Directions after she's turned away by the Warblers, and the shy and chubby Roderic, the show's new underdog who has a voice like Otis Redding."
This perplexes me but I suppose there's no choice but to have students in a school, right? As long as they sway along nicely and quietly in the background, I'll accept it.
- I guess Rachel needs someone to teach.
- We all know how this went the first time...
- There's not enough time or emotional investment from fans to develop well rounded characters in the penultimate season. We're more concerned on how the originals/favorites are faring.
- They BETTER not give them a significant amount of air time.
"SURPRISING NEW GIGS" FOR SAM, BLAINE, & GOOD OL' MR. SCHUE
"While not revealed what exactly they'll be doing, fans can expect to see Blaine (Criss), Sam (Overstreet) and Schuester all have surprising new gigs in Ohio," E!Online notes.
Note: this gif is a shameless ploy to stare at Chord Overstreet's rockin' bod.
- At least they're doing something.
- I'm hearing rumors that Blaine will be the head of Vocal Adrenaline which could potentially be great material humor-wise and drama-wise considering he'd be Rachel's rival.
- If that's true, that means more, varying musical performances.
- Honestly, I don't see many here as long as their new jobs aren't out of character.
Let's just cross our fingers and keep on believing (see what I did there?).
