Glee Season 3, Episode 9 Promo: Our In-Depth Analysis of “Extraordinary Merry Christmas” — New Clues Revealed!
Too much good stuff. Not just the slogan for AMPMs nationwide. (What? We can’t be the only ones who knew that.) No, no — this time it can only describe next week’s holiday-riffic promo for Glee Season 3, Episode 9, “Extraordinary Merry Christmas,” in which the glee club gets a chance at TV (special) stardom... And between Rachel, Kurt and Mercedes’ egos, its sure to get crowded in that spotlight.
Scene 1: New Directions decks the halls... Yes, all of New Directions. Now that Sectionals is over and the 2 clubs are one again, they can focus on more important things like... using an insane amount of tinsel to decorate their choir room.
Scene 3: Sue has a new nickname... for Blaine! And we hope it sticks! But, surprisingly, it’s not as offensive as Wheels (Artie) and Porcelain (Kurt)... or is it? But why are these three being called into Sue’s office? They look worried. Then again, anyone who gets called into Sue’s office should look worried. Is she trying to pull a Grinch-ly scheme like she did last year?
Scene 3b: Another reason to get excited for the holiday ep... Artie’s fantastically tacky Christmas sweaters are back.
Scene 4: The glee girls are in love... With each other! And it’s about time. So much tension and division and baby-induced insanity (*cough* Quinn) in the past few eps, we just wanna see these girlsnot rip each others' heads off, for once.
Scene 5: The bros are back in town Aww, look at Sam and Puck back together again. Unfortunately, Sam is fully clothed in this episode. Sigh. But he is in the perfect position (see: in the same room) to continue his mission to win Mercedes back, now that Troubletones has rejoined New Directions (see: Scene 1).
Scene 6: Lights, camera action! Looks like Rachel is fully over not participating in Sectionals and moved on to bigger and better things. Namely, a Christmas special for New Directions! (Insert Rachel squee face!) But, as we know, the bliss won’t last long, since another opportunity will coincide with this star-making event... what will they do?
Scene 7: New Directions chooses stardom over doing good? Not quite. The clips of the glee gang “on television” are depicted in black and white, with Blaine, Kurt and the rest of them dressed up in sleek 60s attire. This only makes us think its a part of Artie’s whole Chewbacca dream sequence.
Scene 8: Another Blaine and Rachel solo! Not that we didn’t already know that... but seeing them together just reminds us how magical their performances together can be. Could it be, “Extraordinary Merry Christmas?” We’d bet our plastic tree on it. (Listen here!)
Scene 9: Oh, hello, Wemma... Will and Emma are getting less and less screen time. What’s the dilly, yo? Then again, if the spoilers are true, there will be a lot more focus on the two sooooon enough.
Scene 10: Best. Christmas. Ever. We wholly believe that this is exactly how Sam and Rachel feel... but Sue? Yeah, right. Although, after seeing the sneak peek photos of the December 13 ep, we can’t help but wonder if she might have slipped and fallen on a piece of ice... because she actually looks like McKinley High’s Queen of Naughty is actually... being... nice!
