The usually tight-lipped folks at "Glee” dished out a surprising wealth of dirt on Season 2 and Season 3 spoilers at the Paley Festival in Los Angeles Tuesday night, including plans for a Fleetwood Mac episode, Gwyneth Paltrow‘s Holly Holiday returning next season, and more.
First up on the romance front, we already knew that Paltrow is back as Will’s love interest for the next new episode, which is called “Night of Neglect” and airs on April 19. But show creator Ryan Murphy revealed that she’ll probably be back for Season 3 as well, and referred to both Paltrow–and returning champ Kristin Chenoweth–the show’s “muses.”
On Will and Holly’s hookup, Matthew Morrison said, “Whenever Will and Holly are together it’s always hot.” That said, Morrison told the crowd that he has hopes for Will and Emma: “They deserve each other and would help each other so much. I hope it happens.”
We’re going to see a lot more of Kurt and Blaine’s blossoming relationship as well. When asked what happens after the infamous kiss between the two characters this week, Chris Colfer (who plays Kurt Hummel) said, “Probably more kissing.” But on their physical relationship going further, he joked, “I don’t know. Maybe. Or maybe they’re in a very Victorian romance where they’re only going to kiss. And maybe Kurt will show him his shoulder just gently.”
It looks like Finn will have his hands full being back with Quinn–but still having a strong pull toward Rachel. On if there’s hope for Rachel and Finn, Cory Monteith told reporters, “There is. There is. Absolutely. That’s a very central relationship to the show. And I think it’s important. I think it’s really important. And when it’s end game, when that relationship will come back together again, I really don’t know.”
As for Finn & Quinn, well, her campaigning for Prom Queen and King might doom their relationship. “Finn and Quinn are together right now, and I think that she absolutely has ulterior motives, thus being the prom queen, and so we’ve yet to see to what extent or to what lengths she will go, but I bet it’s going to be pretty hard,” said Monteith.
Elsewhere in the love storylines, Santana might get a new love interest, and they won’t say if it’s a man or a woman, but executive producer Brad Falchuk said, “Santana’s a lesbian. Right. She’s a lesbian. She might not be ready to come out yet but she is. And that’s sort of what we’re going for.”
As for Santana and Brittany’s brief affair, Murphy said, “Here’s the thing about Brittany and Santana. Santana is now, I mean internally, but on the show, whether she’s dating somebody or not, we don’t know. But we think you’ll get a big step in giving the world that character. And so whether her and Brittany work out together, we don’t know.”
Last but not least, Mercedes gets a love interest.
And if that’s not enough, here are some more “Glee” goodies:
Sue & Terri Vs. Will: Jane Lynch revealed, “I have this legion of doom and Terri’s a part of it. Jessalyn Gilsig. And I kind of seek her on the glee club to destroy it. And she doesn’t do much in that episode where I start my legion of doom. But then I turn to her and I say, ‘It’s your turn now.’ And she’s like, ‘I’m on it.’ So that’s the next script that I think we’re getting.”
The “Born This Way” Episode: “It’s a really, really cool episode because it kind of speaks for itself. It’s ‘Born This Way’. It’s the way we were born. And I think ‘Glee’ is that kind of universal message of loving who you are and loving the way you were. So being able to do that [Lady Gaga] song is kind of awesome,” said Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina Cohen-Chang).
New Music Episodes: There will be an episode based on Fleetwood Mac‘s “Rumours” album. A possible musical-musical is i the works, as Murphy said they always wanted to do an episode in which everyone sings their lines. And, also on the music front, Kristin Chenoweth returns and sings a ditty titled, “It’s 10 a.m. and I’m Drunk,” and an Adele song is featured in the first new episode back, “Night of Neglect.”
Kurt Returns to McKinley: Kurt will return to McKinley High and the New Directions. Chris Colfer seemed to genuinely let that slip when he said he was “excited to be back.” Whoopsie. Also returning to the show: Charice and Vocal Adrenaline are back in the final six episodes.
The Prom Episode: Ryan Murphy said, “I think the Warblers have to perform at the prom.”
