With the Season 5 finale of Glee quickly approaching, we’re officially starting to wonder where our McKinley High School grads will end up going into the final season. We know a good bit about Season 5, Episode 20 (“The Untitled Rachel Berry Project”), but Kevin McHale (Artie) says even he was blown away by the crazy episode. Gulp!
“There are some different things that I didn’t see coming,” Kevin told E! Online, making us spiral into a frenzy.
Just to refresh your memory, here’s the synopsis for the big episode: “Rachel meets a famous television writer (Kristen Schaal), whose eccentric personality catches Rachel off guard. Meanwhile, Sam and Mercedes deal with the pressure of commitment as their careers take off, and the time has finally come for Blaine’s big showcase with June Dolloway (Shirley MacLaine) at NYADA.”
There are plenty of ways we can be shocked: Rachel (Lea Michele) could leave Broadway and become a TV star, Sam (Chord Overstreet) and Mercedes (Amber Riley) could make a huge relationship decision, and Blaine (Darren Criss) could call off his engagement to Kurt (Chris Colfer).
Any of these options are totally possible, especially given the fact that Season 6 won’t be set in New York City and there will be a time jump. We’ve also been told that “something big” will happen in the finale and the aftermath will be dealt with in the final season.
We need answers. Now!

Glee airs Tuesday nights at 8 p.m. ET on FOX.
