It’s time to stop living in your white-bread world as Glee is about to air its tribute to Billy Joel with Season 5, Episode 6: “Movin’ Out.” Sing us a song, you’re the piano men and women.
It had been widely speculated that the November 21 episode would be devoted to the music of beloved singer-songwriter Billy Joel, and now Fox has confirmed it with this official episode synopsis:
The New Directions pay homage to Piano Man Billy Joel. As graduation approaches, the seniors make plans for their futures beyond the halls of McKinley.
Okay, so not a ton of info being given away in that blurb. But this mention of the glee club members’ “futures” backs up a previous report we’d heard about a college dean character appearing in the episode. Translation: Get ready to see some tucked-in shirts.
Sam (Chord Overstreet) and Blaine (Darren Criss) are rumored to be visiting NYC that week as well. So does this mean that one or both of those dudes will end up in the Big Apple with Kurt (Chris Colfer), Rachel (Lea Michele), and Santana (Naya Rivera)? It freakin’ better mean that!
This episode’s adorableness levels will also be off the charts, as we’ll be getting glimpses of young Sam and young Blaine, presumably during flashbacks while they contemplate their collegiate futures. And then there will be all those amazing Billy Joel tunes. So yes, we’re pretty sure we’re going to love this episode just the way it is.
