"Glee" is welcoming a new warbler tonight in the form of openly gay prep-school student Blaine, but the Hollywood Reporter is giving fans a sneak peek at the episode in which the character sings Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" and captures the eye of McKinley High's Kurt Hummel.
The new issue of Entertainment Weekly reports that the episode, titled "Never Been Kissed," finds Kurt (Chris Colfer) being harassed by the school's football team before heading off to check out the New Directions' competition. That's when he meets Blaine (Darren Criss), the star of the glee club at the all-boys Dalton Academy.
Blaine, who is rumored to become a potential love interest for Kurt, will teach him to become confident in his sexuality and not let the bullies get the best of him.
But Kurt isn't the only one who will have something to sing about this season. Jane Lynch reveals that her character, snarky coach Sue Sylvester, is headed to the altar.
The TV wedding is expected to take place sometime after Gwyneth Paltrow's November 16 guest spot as a substitute teacher who fills in for a flu-stricken Will Schuester.
"The kids start to all love her. So there's kind of a rivalry between Schue and Gwyneth's character," says Lynch, 50. "I did a couple of scenes with Gwyneth. She's got the goods. She can sing, she can dance. I really was [blown away]. I saw them doing a mash-up of 'Singin' in the Rain' and 'Umbrella,' and they are singing and dancing their hearts out, and Gwyneth is leading them. She's amazing."
