Glee Season 5 Premiere Recap: All You Need Is Love! Love Is All You Need?

I’m not one to quote Blaine Anderson — our relationship’s been all downhill since “Teenage Dream” — but the bowtie-wearin’ teen definitely got it right in Glee‘s Season 5 premiere when he responded to feral Kitty’s crazy query, “Can anyone still relate to the Beatles?” I mean, who among us didn’t nod our heads at his dumbstruck retort? “Pretty much the entire world.” Preach, Mr. Anderson, preach!

Of course, the positive John-Paul-George-and-Ringo vibes were the perfect, airy amuse-bouche to a Season 5 main course that we all know is going to get soooo heavy. Indeed, the absence of Finn Hudson — and this summer’s tragic death of series star Cory Monteith — hung heavy over the hour, like a cluster of storm clouds on the horizon during the sunniest of days. (Tell me I’m not the only one who wanted to curl into a ball with a box of Kleenex at the sight of Rachel singing “why he had to go, I don’t know.”)

Alas, though, we won’t need our proverbial umbrellas until the Oct. 10 tribute episode, “The Quarterback” — check out Fox’s first promotional photo here, if you haven’t seen it — so with that in mind, let’s focus on the story of how Beatlemania came to McKinley High.

I’m gonna break it down in three quick bullet points — then come back overnight and update this recap with more details — before turning things over for your discussion. Here goes:

* Blaine and Kurt got back together, but the former wasn’t satisfied with a facebook status update to “in a relationship.” He banded together all of the region’s competing show choirs for a massive song-and-dance proposal to “All You Need Is Love.” And Kurt said yes — though his face looked a little less certain, no?

* After a period of secrecy, Kitty and Artie went public with their love affair.

* Rachel stayed in contention for the Funny Girl role, but the director and leading man questioned if she was seasoned enough for the gig. A sizzling performance at her place of work as a singing waitress, though, may have sealed the deal. We’ll have to wait and see.

* Sue snagged the role of McKinley principal from Figgins — through nefarious means, of course.

And with that, I turn it over to you. What did you think of “Love, Love, Love”? Sound off in the comments, vote in our poll and be sure to come back overnight for the full recap!
