'Glee' Season 5 Premiere Recap: Did Kurt Say Yes?
SPOILER ALERT: DO NOT CONTINUE IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED!
The fifth season of Glee returned this evening and some big things went down on the brand new episode titled “Love, Love, Love”!
The season premiere was the first episode without the late Cory Monteith, though his death won’t be addressed until the third episode this season when everyone says farewell to Finn Hudson.
When last season left off, Rachel (Lea Michele) was in the process of auditioning to play Fanny Brice in the Broadway revival of Funny Girl and the season started off right from there with guest stars Peter Facinelli and Ioan Gruffudd sitting in for her callback audition.

-Rachel’s audition was cut short and the casting director (Facinelli) and show’s male lead (Gruffudd) didn’t seem to think she is a star yet. Later in the episode while Rachel is working at a diner with Santana (Naya Rivera), the casting director and star sit down to eat and Rachel proves she has star power by performing a musical number right in the middle of the restaurant. We’ll have to wait and see if it worked!
-Back at McKinley High School, it is Beatles Week and this week is all about the “early years” of the British group. Artie (Kevin McHale) and Kitty (Becca Tobin) are in a new relationship, but she wants to keep it secret after some fellow cheerleaders make fun of her for it. Later, Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz) finds out about the relationship and tells the Glee club about it because she doesn’t think it should be a secret. Kitty tells Artie that she only kept it secret because she wasn’t sure how she felt about him yet, but now she is ready to let everyone know because she knows she really likes him.
-Everyone in the Glee club has realized that Tina has been lonely, so they set up a performance in her honor and told her she can choose between Blaine (Darren Criss), Sam (Chord Overstreet), and Ryder (Blake Jenner) as her prom date. She chooses Sam.
-Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) was fired at the end of last season for her “involvement” in the school shooting. Now, she is back as the principal of the school for framing Principal Figgins with some questionable things like bringing porn to school and owning a signed Hitler book. She tells Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison) that she will keep the Glee club funded as long as they win the Nationals competition this year.
-Blaine decides that he is ready to propose to Kurt (Chris Colfer). At the end of last season he had asked Kurt’s dad for his permission to ask him and now he has asked the Glee club, as well as the Warblers and others to help him in the surprise marriage proposal. All of Kurt’s loved ones come home for the musical proposal, including Rachel, Santana, and Mercedes (Amber Riley). While being driven to the proposal by his dad, Kurt says he knows what is going to happen and asks his dad for his advice. His dad says while they are so young, he wishes he could have had more time with his wife, who had passed away years ago. In the end, Kurt says yes and the two are engaged.
