Glee is finally back after a seemingly endless hiatus and they’re ratcheting up the drama for the final batch of episodes. Now, we already know that next week is Glee‘s supersized episode, featuring New Directions’ cover of Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way,” but now Fox has released details on the final four episodes airing this May. Sadly, there’s no Gwyneth, but a ton of other good stuff in store. Here’s what to expect [and here lies the requisite SPOILER ALERT]:

  • May 3: April Rhodes (Kristin Chenoweth) returns! Meanwhile, Sue (Jane Lynch) brings back the school newspaper and, naturally, begins to plant blind gossip items. Plus, a secret is revealed about Sam (Chord Overstreet) that brings him closer to the glee club.
  • May 10: New Directions performs at the McKinley High prom and the dreamy-but-duplicitous Jessie St. James (Jonathan Groff) shows up.
  • May 13: Jessie helps New Directions prepare their performance for Nationals. (Should they be trusting him again?) But the big news is that someone will die. (The episode is titled “Funeral.”)
  • May 20: It all comes down to this — New Directions heads to New York for Nationals!

Plus, based on last night’s coming attractions, Kurt (Chris Colfer) is back at McKinley! See below…
