Spoilers Anonymous In-Depth: 'Glee's' Post-Super Bowl Episode

Spoilers AnonymousThis is Spoilers Anonymous In-Depth, a weekly column here at TV Squad where we discuss and give our two cents about recently released spoilers and how they may affect the storylines, shows and fans.

This in-depth version of the column goes hand in hand with our weekly spoilers column, in which we supply you with the dirt on some of the more popular shows on the air.

This week, we discuss spoilers recently released for the upcoming post-Super Bowl episode of 'Glee.'


This special episode will focus on the local football championships and the cheerleading regionals. Sue will throw a hissy fit and try to destroy the locker room and the principal's office. Katie Couric will appear in a scene with Sue, and Cory Monteith recently revealed that Artie (portrayed by Kevin McHale) will be doing a lot of the singing.

It's a great idea to have the post-Super Bowl episode focus on the local football championships as it may help keep some of the game's viewers tuned in. In order to do so, Fox will need to properly advertise the fact that 'Glee' will focus on football in the weeks to come and during the Super Bowl (adding a glimpse of the "Thriller" tribute might help, too).

You can bet that a Sue hissy fit during such a special episode will be a super entertaining. If Sue does try to destroy the locker room as the spoilers say, it'll probably be because the regionals aren't going her way.

The fact that Katie Couric will guest star is odd. It's unknown how she'll fit in but it smells of stunt casting that will end up in not helping the episode much. What's your take on this casting? Share your two cents in the comments section below.

Artie! Artie! Artie! You have to admit that he is becoming a fan favorite! It will be interesting to see why Artie ends up doing most of the singing. Will it have to do with football, glee club, romance?


Vocal Adrenaline, including Charice reprising her role of Sunshine, will perform the Black Eyed Peas' hit 'Meet Me Halfway.' Dalton Academy Warblers will sing Destiny's Child's 'Bills Bills Bills.' Some of the other songs performed in this special episode will include tunes by Lady Antebellum and Katy Perry.

It feels like years since we last heard Vocal Adrenaline perform, no? It's a nice idea to bring them back to offer some competition to New Directions, and it will allow us to get an update on some of the Adrenaline members such as Sunshine and maybe even Jesse. Will all glee clubs, including the Warblers, be performing the half-time show during the local championships or will they somehow be involved in the cheerleading regionals?


But the musical performance fans are mostly looking forward to is the mash-up of Michael Jackson's 'Thriller,' with a yet-to-be-announced song. Finn, who will be one of the zombies in the tribute, will provide the spooky narration at the beginning of 'Thriller.'

'Thriller' is such an epic song ... which other song could possibly be "strong" enough to be mashed up with it? Well, the season 2 song list on Wikipedia claims that 'Thriller' will be mashed-up with 'Heads Will Roll' and that Finn, New Directions and the William McKinley High football team will take part in this unique performance. This sounds like an interesting pairing since 'Heads Will Roll' does have a spooky and mysterious feel to it but we still say 'Thriller' should have been performed as is and not be mashed with another song.


Are you looking forward to the post-Super Bowl episode? What are you looking the most forward to? What's your take on the 'Thriller/Heads Will Roll' mash up?


'Glee' airs Tuesdays at 8PM ET on FOX. The post-Super Bowl episode will air on Sun., Feb. 6 at approximately 10:30PM ET.

To all the "nay sayers" on the mash up of Thriller/Heads Will Roll, there have been video's posted on youtube, and it sounds amazing! They pull it off very well.

Thriller would be the best song and best stage show to perform! If they don't fully do the whole song and do a mix it will ruin the song. But then again it's only my opinion...I just wish i knew when this will aire,and what channel. but hopefully someone will post the answers to my questions. God Bless and R.I.P our PETER PAN "Michael Joseph Jackson...

I love it! I can't wait to finally watch Glee again! I've missed it! I love all the characters and how amazing the cast is! :).

And to anyone out there who wants to rant on Glee, really?! Why did you click on the link if you hate the show?! I don't see how you hate it, anyway...

Thats just my point of view...
