There's no new episode of Glee airing Thursday night, but behind the scenes, Feb. 28 is a big day for the Fox musical comedy.
"I actually have a meeting tomorrow morning at 11 where I have to pitch out not only the end of this year but the next year," co-creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy told TVGuide.com Wednesday at a Paley Center event honoring his work. "I think what I want to do — and I hope it is liked by the other people who control my paychecks — is... something that we've never done before. So, a different kind of storytelling — not what you would think.
"I didn't want to do something that we've done every year," Murphy continued. "I wanted to do...
[Spoiler alert: This story reveals three major plot points from Thursday's episode of Glee. Trust us when we say avert your eyes if you have not yet watched it.]
Thursday's episode of Glee was technically titled "Diva" but the music of Madonna, Elton and Beyonce was absolutely the last thing on viewers' minds after three major moves made by Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz), Finn (Cory Monteith) and Santana (Naya Rivera).
Tina: As if Tina's season-long b----y streak wasn't...
It's about time!
Ever since Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) left Lima for the big city on Glee, Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz) has been desperately trying to take over her throne as queen bee by acting demanding, narcissistic and just plain overly confident.

Thankfully, in this sneak peek from Thursday's new episode (9/8c), someone calls Miss Thang out on her "ridiculous trash" and...
The halls of McKinley High — not to mention NYADA — were left littered with broken hearts after the first half of Glee's fourth season, in which longtime fan-favorite couples such as Finchel, Klaine and Brittana split. But it looks like love is the air for a more than few of our favorite New Direction-ers past and present when the series returns with new episodes Thursday at 9/8c on Fox. "I think Rachel is kind of diving in head first with Brody a little bit," Lea Michele tells TVGuide.com. "I think that they definitely move a little faster just because he's a little older and because they're in college now."
Brachel — or should we say Rady? — aren't the only lovebirds heating up...
It seems like just yesterday that Glee's Finn (Cory Monteith) and Puck (Mark Salling) were rocking to Bruce Springsteen's "Glory Days" and getting their diplomas with the rest of the graduating seniors. But in just a few short months, a whole new crop of New Directions seniors will be turning their tassles.
During a visit to the Fox musical dramedy on Wednesday, executive producer Dante DiLoreto revealed the McKinley High Class of 2013 will include Blaine (Darren Criss), Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz), Artie (Kevin McHale), Brittany (Heather Morris) — for realz this time — and possibly Sam (Chord Overstreet). So does that mean Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) should make room in their Brooklyn loft for some new roomies? Not necessarily. "I wouldn't be surprised if [you find] another cast member or a few other cast members ... in New York. That story has yet to reveal itself, but it seems like one of those natural conclusions," DiLoreto said. "Just like we all do in high school, they're going to different places and hopefully those are stories that we can blossom."
It's the Glee pairing no one, and everyone, saw coming. Ever since co-creator Ryan Murphy first tweeted a picture of Brittany (Heather Morris) and Sam (Chord Overstreet) in wedding-like garb with the caption "wedding of the year" last month, some fans have been waiting in eager anticipation for the new McKinley couple to get together. Meanwhile others have been bracing for what they have since dubbed the "Brampocalypse". Even Brittany herself — in a hilarious fourth-wall-breaking incident — admitted she was hesitant to commit to Sam for fear the lesbians of the nation would turn on him, "get really violent and hurt your beautiful face and mouth," as Brittany so eloquently put it. After watching Brittany fall head over heels for Santana (Naya Rivera), is now the time for her to move on — and with a member of the opposite sex? We weigh the pros and cons of one of Glee's most controversial couples...
Dianna Agron and Naya Rivera
Brace yourself, New York: Santana Lopez is headed your way!
On Tuesday, Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy posted a photo of Santana (Naya Rivera) sititng besides frenemy Quinn (Dianna Agron) with the caption: "New York visitation." It looks like the two are sitting in Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt's Brooklyn loft, but why...
Chord Overstreet and Jenna Ushkowitz
Glee's Season 4 premiere on Thursday answered many burning questions (Can Cassandra July actually out-dance her wide-eyed ingénues? Yes, she can!), but it also left fans with a set of new ones . When the heck is Finn coming back? Is Tina going to be mean forever? What's next for Klaine after Kurt's teary goodbye? And most importantly, what other celebrity impressions can we expect from Sam next? We got the answers to all those and more...
That's the word Glee co-creator and executive producer Ian Brennan uses to describe the summer of 2011 when it was reported that stars Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith would be among the graduating seniors and would not be returning Season 4.
"I was like, 'I can't believe this is such a huge deal,'" Brennan tells TVGuide.com. "We had to do a lot of reassuring to people: Not only are you not going to miss any of the characters you love this season, but we're probably going to follow them when they graduate. It was more of a nuisance than anything...

Will Booth and Brennan be fighting in the Bones premiere? — Mary
ADAM: Although Booth takes a few verbal jabs in the premiere, you won't really begin to see his true emotions come out right away. "I think the initial reaction is relief and gratitude that [Brennan and Baby Christine] are fine," executive producer Stephen Nathan tells us. "The second episode is where [Booth] realizes he resents this person, that he's angry at her." But Nathan hints that Brennan's got some issues of her own. "Brennan has lived her entire life quite independently," Nathan says. "She's realizing for the first time that she's terribly interconnected with Booth... and this kind of shakes the foundation of who she feels she's been all these years. [She may] resent the fact that she gave herself over to another person."
Thanks for the Meredith scoop, but do you know anything about MerDer on the upcoming season of Grey's Anatomy? — Rachel
