Image Credit: Adam Rose/FoxSeason 2 of Glee kicks off tonight at 8 p.m. ET, to the joy of show choir nerds, EW staffers, and basically the entire world. Will Rachel and Finn start the school year together? (Will he give her relationship calendars another chance?) What about the future of Quinn and Puck? Where’s The ex-Mrs. Schue hiding out these days? What will Kurt wear on the first day of school? More importantly, what color tracksuit will Sue Sylvester be sporting?
It’s a new school year for New Directions, so it’s fitting they have a new opportunity to redeem themselves after failing to advance beyond Regionals. Thanks to a few OMG-inducing promos, we know that Mr. Schuester plants Nationals in the hearts and minds of his students, which will lead to a (possible fantasy?) performance of Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ “Empire State of Mind.” They’ll also cover Travie McCoy’s “Billionaire,” and be introduced to a foreign exchange student, and future rival to Rachel Berry, played by international pop sensation Charice. Plus, John Stamos as Emma’s dentist love interest! (I guess she outgrew her intimacy problems?)
After you’ve watched (and rewatched, and rewatched…) head back here at 9 p.m. ET to give us your snap judgments on tonight’s premiere. And don’t forget to look for Tim Stack’s full recap at midnight.
