If several of the original Glee cast members needed a reason to reunite, what better a cause than the series' 100th episode? That's what was in the works this week, with Mark Saling, Dianna Agron, Harry Shum Jr., Kristin Chenoweth, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Heather Morris returning to the show for the two-part special ep. (Gossip Girl's Chace Crawford is also set to appear!) And while it sounds like it was likely an emotional experience, it was also an opportunity to get their glitz on in an eye-popping, over-the-top, American Hustle-esque way So fun!
"Want to dress like this every day," Dianna tweeted. Judging from this shot she and Lea shared of themselves (left) in what Lea calls "early '80 glam," how could we blame them for wanting to embrace the vintage look on the regular?!
Dianna also tweeted a shot of herself with "the boys" ...
And Lea Michele, who tweeted, "So thankful for my amazing glee family. I love them so much," also shared via Instagram: "Best day at work... #glee #family," along with a totally wow-worthy snap of herself looking ready to hit up Studio 54 ...
Best of all, though, the occasion also made way for discussion about what fans can expect in the episodes ahead ...
More from The Stir: Lea Michele's Confession About Cory Monteith Explains Her Big Career Move
FOX's Kevin Reilly explained at the TCA panel:
Some [characters] are going to be graduating and moving on. Creatively, it would be ridiculous if everybody moved to New York, so there's going to be some who are going to graduate and move on. And they'll come back in when we do special episodes.
Fair enough, and pretty much par for the course. But he also elaborated with juicy new details:
Ryan Murphy pitched the arc all the way through next season. What's going to happen this year is the kids will graduate and we're going to go to New York exclusively through the second half of the year, and then he's got some ideas about what we're going to do next year for the final year.
Innnnteresting! Well, if this 100th episode extravaganza is even just a hint of what we can expect going forward, Gleeks are surely in for a treat. Can't wait to see how it all plays out!
What are your thoughts on the 100th episode teasers? Any guesses for how the last season will play out?
