The time frame is fall. As I mentioned in my last spoiler post, there is a 6 month-ish time jump between season 5 and season 6.Rachel, Blaine, Kurt, Sam, Figgins, Will, Sue, Karofsky, and some others I’ll mention in a bit, ARE in this episode.Artie, Mercedes, Santana are NOT in theepisode.Rachel’s pilot goes toseries, but it bombs. The show is quickly cancelled. The fallout renders her Hollywoodcareer dead in the water. Having burned her bridges on Broadway she has nowhere to go. She ends up moving back home.Rachel finds out that her dads are divorcing. Hiram has moved out. Leroy, who is in theepisode, is the dad left at home.Rachel , still dismayed that Principal Sue disbanded the Glee club, goes above her head to the Lima school superintendent. She convinces him to revive the McKinley glee club by offering to fund it with her remaining TV money. He insists she be the director.Blaine and Kurt are already broken up when the episode begins.Backstory: After Blaine moved back into the loft, the couple continued to argue. Kurt decided they were too young to be engaged and broke it off. Upset after the breakup, Blaine allowed his grades to slip and was cut from NYADA.In the episode, Blaine has already moved back in with his parents to regroup, and has taken a job at Dalton as the director of The Warblers.After months apart, Kurt changes his mind about Blaine and heads back to Lima to try and get him back. But too late because…Blaine and Karofsky are a couple. They are dating. They even have pet names for each other. Yogi Bear and Boo Boo. And yes, I did throw up in my mouth a little when I heard that. Karofsky is a collegestudent and totally out as a gay man.Blaine tells Kurt he’s dating Karofsky.After Kurt arrives in Lima, Rachel convinces him to run Glee club with her. He remains a NYADA student, taking the job as an intern.Figgins is a part-time barista at the Lima BeanSam works for Coach Beiste. He is an assistant footballcoach at McKinleyArtie is still in film school. Mercedes is still on tour with Santana and Brittany.New kids, Roderick, the nerd, and Spencer, the cocky gay footballplayer, appear in theepisode.Will is the director of Vocal Adrenaline.We’ll get to see Rachel’s pilot. It’s called “That’s So Rachel”No Glee club tryouts yet.The Karofsky spoilers are KILLING ME. I’m happy Max Adler is returning to play the role, but pairing him up with Blaine is just a cheap way to cause controversy and create drama. Also, the idea that all of the graduates return to Lima and wind up working at respective high schools is ridiculously contrived. Glee never managed to work it’s way out of the creative hole it painted itself into when the stars of the show graduated high school at the end of season 3. I’m sure I’ll have more thoughts on this later.
