We’ve seen other promos for Glee Season 4, but none with scenes from this many episodes. But as Glee’s Season 4 premiere draws near, FOX has released a new, extended promo that features footage from at least the first four episodes of the season.
So what can we learn from this new promo extravaganza? We’re breaking down the newest video: second-by-second, frame-by-frame — in search of clues. Here’s a look at what we’ve managed to discover.
Scene 1a: “Attention, students!”
Sue (Jane Lynch) and Becky (Lauren Potter) are in her office, about to make a school-wide announcement. But where is Sue’s little baby daughter, Robin?
Scene 1b: “Glee is coming for you.”
Helloooo, Rachel (Lea Michele). New York City can certainly change a girl. We hardly recognized you in that sexy little tight black outfit.
Scene 1c: Song montage.
Blaine (Darren Criss) is singing Imagine Dragons’s “It’s Time” to Kurt (Chris Colfer) in the the McKinley courtyard — his way of giving his blessing for his boyfriend to pack up and move to New York City.
Moments later, we flash to New York, where Rachel and her hot new love interest, Brody (Dean Geyer), are walking down the street. These two aren’t holding hands quite yet, but based on the spoiler photos from filming, we know they’re just moments away from it.
Scene 1d: Look, it’s Finn!
Hold on a second. That doesn’t look like boot camp! And that definitely isn’t an army uniform he’s wearing, either. What exactly is going on with Finn (Cory Monteith) this season, anyway? Finn will be totally MIA during Glee’s Season 4 premiere, and we weren’t expecting to see him at all until Episode 4. But when he does finally come back, here’s what we do know: Finn’s storyline is going to shock us, and it won’t be anything close to what fans will expect.
Scene 2a: Rachel Berry’s first NYADA dance class.
Her new teacher Cassandra is there. Kate Hudson looks absolutely fabulous, but Cassandra is nothing short of terrible in her attitude towards Rachel. Looks like Miss Berry’s got quite the rough journey ahead of her.
Scene 3a: The teachers dance.
Will (Matthew Morrison) and Sue (Jane Lynch) take the stage matching vest-and-hat attire. This could be their yet-unnamed Judy Garland number from Episode 3.
Scene 3b: The glee club moves forward.
The New Directions rush to surround new girl Marley (Melissa Benoist) after a performance. Could this be her stirring performance of Adele’s “Chasing Pavements,” which Marley sings after the New Ds have officially chosen her to be their new Rachel Berry?
Scene 4a: Time for auditions!
With half of their club graduated last season, the New Directions are in serious need of some new members. Sadly, the auditions don’t exactly appear to be going all that well.
Scene 4b: Oh, hey Marley.
Until they meet Marley, that is! Dang this girl can sing. Mr. Schue says it best: “Wow.”
Scene 4c: Puck’s little brother is there, too!
Newbie Jake (Jacob Artist) has a killer voice. If you haven’t heard his rendition of The Fray’s “Never Say Never,” stop what you are doing. And listen to it now. Too bad Puck’s (Mark Salling) younger half-brother needs a serious attitude adjustment. Expect him to cause a bit of trouble during Glee’s Season 4 premiere. Also, Sugar (Vanessa Lengies) thinks Jake is totally sexy — and she’s definitely not the only one!
Scene 5a: This season...
There’s a quick clip of Brittany (Heather Morris) singing “Call Me Maybe.” Sue’s spending some quality time with her infant daughter. And we get another look at bitchy new Cheerio Kitty’s (Becca Tobin) big Glee debut. Sue sums it up best: “She’s like a young Quinn Fabray. Except she’s not pregnant, manic depressive, or in and out of a wheelchair.”
Yikes, Quinn (Dianna Agron) really has had a ridiculous storyline over the years, hasn’t she? No wonder actress Dianna reportedly wants off the show so bad.
Scene 6a: “Glee’s got the biggest stars.”
Here’s Kate Hudson again. This time, we’re treated to a clip of her super-sexy performance of Lady Gaga’s "Americano" and Jennifer Lopez's "Dance Again."
Now Rachel and Kurt are together in NYC. But wait, could this be the the fabulous office of Vogue that they’re about to enter? Judging by who just walked in, we’d say it is. Standing there before them is none other than Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker, who will play Kurt’s new boss during his fabulous internship at Vogue.com.
Scene 7a: “The biggest decisions...”
Burt Hummel (Mike O’Malley) drops Kurt off at the airport. “You scared?” he asks. We’re guessing the answer is yes. Moving across the country, and away from your family and boyfriend, certainly doesn’t sound easy.
Scene 7b: “And the biggest...”
Now Brittany’s dancing on the football field with the Cheerios.
Scene 7c: “Baddest...”
And she takes the stage with the New Directions — wearing nothing but a black bra? This has to be her trainwreck performance of “Gimme More” from Episode 2’s big Britney Spears tribute.
Scene 7d: “Britney 2.0!”
Da-yum, Rachel. Who knew you could dance like that? The not-so-innocent college freshman performs an erotic version of Britney’s “Oops!... I Did It Again,” and it looks just as naughty as promised. Groping, grinding... there’s even that whole sex-through-a-table thing we were warned about, too.
Too bad dance teacher Cassandra is nowhere near impressed. “That was horrible,” she tells Rachel — and a totally dejected-looking Brody. “Get out of my class!”
Scene 8a: Slushie time!
Both Marley and Unique (Alex Newell) get a bright red slushie to the face. Oh, did we forget to mention that Unique is transferring to McKinley this year? Getting slushie all over your outfit is so NOT fabulous.
