Glee Preview: New Directions Prepares for Nationals in "Funeral" Tweet May 10, 2011 by Laura Case Credit: Hello, “Funeral”! Jesse St. James (Jonathan Groff) is glee’s new “show choir consultant”; Sue (Jane Lynch) intensifies her campaign against the club; and Quinn (Dianna Agron) attempts to get Finn (Cory Monteith) to quit New Directions with her. We know they make it to New York — but it must be by the skin of their teeth! Or perhaps everyone finds solidarity in tragedy? | Original Air Date: May 17, 2011 8/7c.
