Happy Glee-sgiving! For the second year in a row, the show will be airing a new episode on Thanksgiving. This year, the date will be Thursday, November 28, and the night’s episode will be Season 5, Episode 7: “Puppet Master.”
The episode is still filming, so we don’t have a ton of spoilers quite yet. But there’s still plenty of information we do know. We’ve been on the lookout for as many details as possible. Here’s what we’ve been able to uncover so far.
Yep. Plan your Thanksgiving meal accordingly. Hopefully your family doesn’t like to eat super late, because if it’s a choice between Grandma’s famous turkey and looking at Darren Criss’ (Blaine) face, Darren sort of wins on this one. Or maybe we can leave the table and just eat Grandma’s turkey while watching Glee? Hopefully no one will mind.
What do you think about Glee taking on Ylvis's viral hit?
Speaking of Darren, his Glee character will play a huge part of this week’s episode... and not in a good way.
Finally. We missed you, girl! Also, be on the lookout for Dani to sport some bright blue hair.
But when they do come back... that performance looks awesome.
You'd better believe it!
From what we can tell, the band Pamela Lansbury will be performing Madonna’s “Into the Groove.”
Blaine is singing Queen’s “You’re My Best Friend”... with puppets. It sounds ridiculous, but in the best possible way. Also, just in case you were worried, there will be a Blaine puppet, too.
Aww, we’re sure it turned out fantastic. We mean, this is Darren Criss we’re talking about.
Sigh. Oh well.
