Nightbird strikes again on Glee!
If you’re like us and can’t get enough of Blaine (Darren Criss) in his superhero costume, you’re in luck: He will be taking part in some costumed shenanigans in Glee’s upcoming Season 4, Episode 20: “Lights Out.”
Glee creator Ryan Murphy tweeted a pic from the set featuring Blaine — wearing his Nightbird superhero costume, nonetheless — Sam (Chord Overstreet), and Artie (Kevin McHale) in a darkened room analyzing bits of shredded documents. In the photo, Blaine is excitedly pointing out something to Artie that he’s found.
“Glee does Argo,” is what Ryan has captioned the photo. In Argo, the Iranians hope to discover the identities of missing U.S. government workers by painstakingly piecing back together shredded documents. Presumably, somebody on Glee shredded these documents to hid them from the New Directions, but Sam and the boys aren’t willing to let them get away with it. Who knew New Directions could be so stealthy?
But what documents are they sifting through — and who shredded them? We think it’s safe to assume Sue (Jane Lynch) is somehow involved, given that Blaine and Sam made it clear in a recent episode that they plan to take her down before they graduate.
And this now gives us a clearer understanding of what Chord was talking about when he hinted that he would be in the dark with Darren and Kevin — to which Kevin replied, “Wanky.” Wanky, indeed.
Then again, maybe “Glee does Argo” is just a hint that someone is going to be growing a thick, ‘70s-esque beard like the one Ben Affleck had in the movie? You never know.
