Everything We Know So Far About - ''Original Song''

Wednesday, February 23, 2011


Original Song is the sixteenth episode of the second season, and the thirty-eighth episode of Glee. It will air on March 15, 2011 as the Regionals Episode. 

Short Synopsis: With Sue Sylvester coaching Aural Intensity, Blaine and the Warblers’ dynamic set list and tough judges Tammy Jean Albertson and Sister Mary Constance, the kids of New Directions decide the only way to win Regionals is to write and perform their own original songs. Meanwhile, Quinn is determined on getting Finn back and ruling McKinley once again. 
This episode will cover the events of the "2011 Western Ohio Regionals Championship" where New Directions, Aural Intensity and The Dalton Academy Warblers will compete for their entries in the "2011 New York Nationals Championship". 

The order the schools perform their songs in is:

1. New Directions 2. Dalton Academy Warblers 3. Aural Intensity

This episode no longer features Holly Holliday.

Regionals will feature 2 judges (known so far), the first is played by Kathy Griffin while the second is played by Loretta Devine. Griffin is supposed to be a 'Sarah Palin' type of character while Loretta is a playing a nun who used to be a stripper.

Rod Remmington was seen by fans, so he is possibly the third judge.

The Warblers have Kurt and Blaine performing a duet of "Candle" followed by "Raise Your Glass".

As usual, The Warblers are dressed in their school uniforms.

Aural Intensity perform "Jesus is My Friend" by Sonseed. The performance is aimed toward Mary Constance (one of the judges), but the song won't be realased as a single.

Aural Intensity's performance is all about dancing (opposed to Sectionals where the teams were all about singing). It's apparently both amazing and funny.

New Directions sing "Loser Like Me", which will be a group number with Finn and Rachel as the leads and then "Get It Right", a Rachel-solo. New Directions' performance involves them throwing a slushie (made of confetti) at the crowd. Guys are dressed in all black, girls black tights, combat boots, and teal-ish tops. "Get It Right" is written by Adam Anders and he also co-wrote "Loser Like Me" alongwith Max Martin, Peer Astrom, Savan Kotecha and John Schuster. "Get It Right" is going to be very emotional.

The episode is apparently very Quinn orientated. Her deep desire to be Prom Queen will appear again in this episode. Also her mother will appear again and we find out she was Prom Queen in her High School years. Her mother appears in the episode.

Apparently Kurt is coming back to New Directions this episode, and Blaine might follow because Glee ended contracts with the school the Warblers film at, so it’s possible we’ll be seeing the end of the Warblers very soon. We're pretty certain Blaine will transfer as we know he will have more episodes following this one as another Rachel and Blaine duet was promised.

New Directions win Regionals.

The Warblers open with Kurt and Blaine's duet. Kurt has the first few lines. At the end of the song, Blaine pulls Kurt into the spotlight which leads into their second number. After the group number they hug.

During the duet, Quinn grabs Finn’s hand.

Chris Colfer told fans that they filmed a lot of scenes involving Kurt and Blaine for this episode and a lot of scenes between Rachel and Quinn were also filmed.

Telly Leung (Wes) was seen in the New Directions Green Room, so he may have a scene with them.

Kurt will sing "Blackbird" by The Beatles as a solo with the Warblers as backup.

Amber said she is filming a "very big scene".

Quinn is apparently going to be joking with Rachel when she will say some "rude" things to her.

In "Original Song", Rachel and Quinn are both after Finn (as shown in the promo where Rachel tells Quinn she's not backing down). The promos also hint at a growing Faberry friendship (see the second promo where Quinn rests her head on Rachel's shoulder). Rachel will confront Quinn about taking Finn back.

Rachel and Quinn will have a confrontation over Finn; (as seen in the "Original Song" promo).

Rachel dedicates "Get It Right" to Finn; (as seen in the "Original Song" promo).

Blaine is involved in a game-changing plot point.
