According to reports (spoiler alert), tonight's episode depicts Kurt (Chris Colfer) being harassed by football players before taking a look at the New Directions' competition. There, he meets Blaine (Darren Criss), star of the glee club at the all-boys Dalton Academy.

In the episode, Blaine, who might become a potential love interest for Kurt, will teach him to be comfortable with his sexuality and not let bullying get him down.

Back at McKinley, another boys vs. girls musical role reversal takes place, with the boys singing a Supremes/En Vogue medley of "Stop! In the Name of Love/Free Your Mind" and the girls mashing up the Stones' "Start Me Up" and Bon Jovi's "Livin' On A Prayer."

Song Stories

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
