Another Glee episode wraps, and already we can’t stop thinking about what will happen next week. For your convenience, we’ve dissected next week’s promo frame-by-frame, second-by-second, to give you some of our insights into what you can expect next week in Season 4, Episode 16: “Feud.”
00:01 — It’s a Finn vs. Will battle!
Finn (Cory Monteith) just confessed to Will (Matthew Morrison) that he kissed Emma (Jayma Mays), and Will did not seem happy. Now, it seems that the tensions between the two men have really come to a head!
Artie (Kevin McHale) explains what’s about to go down. “You two will resolve your differences by performing a song together.”
00:05 — ‘N Sync vs. Backstreet Boys!
What better way to hash out your problems than with an epic song and dance battle using two of the most beloved boy bands of the 90s? It’s Backstreet Boys vs. ‘N Sync. We’ve seen the photos, so we know that Finn leads the Backstreet Boys, and Will leads ‘N Sync. Their song of choice? An epic mashup of ‘N Sync’s “Bye Bye Bye” and Backstreet Boys’ “I Want It That Way.”
00:06 — “Next Thursday, 9/8c”
Thank goodness it’s back on at the regular time! This whole half hour late thing was getting a bit confusing.
Also: What’s up with all those tables at NYADA? Didn’t we already do a table dance back in the Britney Spears episode?
00:07 — “An all-new Glee is about to break loose!”
Santana (Naya Rivera) jacks Brody’s (Dean Geyer) pager while he’s in the shower. Obviously, she’s still convinced he’s a drug dealer. And she’s ready to do some hard-core investigating to find out!
00:10 — Santana visits NYADA!
But this little trip is for business, not for pleasure. “I can destroy you,” she tells Brody. “I know exactly what you want.”
00:11 — Finn kicks a stack of papers angrily.
HULK SMASH. This does not look good.
00:13 — “Everybody’s wigging out!”
Including Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch). She’s dressed as Nicki Minaj... wearing all pink, and sporting a platinum blonde wig. Jane herself has already spilled that she’ll be rapping Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass.”
What’s more, it’s part of a duet with Blaine (Darren Criss). The two will be singing a mashup of Mariah Carey’s “I Still Believe” and Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass.”
00:14 — Unique shoves Jake in the chest!
Whatever he did to her, Unique (Alex Newell) is not happy. Better watch out, Ryder (Blake Jenner). We do not want to be around Unique when she’s angry.
We don’t know what the drama is about, but we’re guessing their mashup duet of Elton John’s “The Bitch Is Back” and Madonna’s “Dress You Up” somehow ties into it!
00:16 — Blaine stares Sue down.
“Are you threatening me?” he asks. No Blaine. She’s not threatening you. She’s blackmailing you. See, Sue wants you back on her Cheerios... and she’s not afraid to play dirty to get what she wants! What could she be blackmailing him about?
00:18 — Becky’s mad, too.
“Yeah. Get moving, be-yotch!” She slaps him in the ass. Ouch.
00:24 — The Will vs. Finn fight gets physical!
“Get ready for World War Glee!” Will stands inches from Finn’s face and snarls at him menacingly. “I am going to kick... your...”
00:25 — Will lunges at Finn
They’re both on stage, in the middle of their mashup performance, but Will doesn’t seem to care. He runs straight at Finn and pushes him towards the ground. Break it up, you two! Isn’t it the kids who are supposed to be getting into fights around here... not the teachers?
