Our cup runneth over with spoilers from Glee’s third season — and we’re drinking it all in like we’ve been in the desert sans water for two days straight!
Gleezone just divulged the scoop on Glee Season 3, Episode 3, entitled “Asian F.” The episode centers around Mike Chang, which makes perfect sense, since Harry Shum Jr. was recently promoted to a series regular. Read on for the synopsis:
Mike is under pressure to quit New Directions; Rachel and Mercedes face-off for the lead in the school play with unforeseen results; the campaign for class President gets a new candidate; and Will worries that Emma is embarrassed by him.
After Mike Chang scores an A- (otherwise known as an “Asian F”) on a chemistry test, his father orders him to drop out of New Directions to focus on academics; the edict forces the young performer to choose between pleasing his parents or staying true to his dreams. Following some encouragement from her new boyfriend (Shane), a confident Mercedes delivers a phenomenal audition for the part of “Maria”; forcing a head-to-head callback against previous favorite Rachel to determine who will get the prized role. Brittany enters the race for senior class President, and proves a formidable opponent. When a worried Will wonders why Emma has yet to introduce him to her parents, Coach Beiste encourages him to take the initiative.
As Mike struggles to choose his life-path, he gets surprising support from an unexpected source. Unable to reach an agreement on casting, the directors of the school play make a compromise they hope will please everyone; unfortunately their actions have the opposite result, forcing one member of Glee Club to make a shocking announcement.
