The first episode, “Love, Love, Love,” finds the New Directions crew assigned with tackling the Beatles songbook, as Blaine and Kurt attempt to answer questions about their future together. Meanwhile, Rachel’s New York ambitions take an unexpected turn.

On Oct. 3, the second episode — dubbed “Tina in the Sky With Diamonds” — will chronicle Tina’s bid for prom queen, as she alienates her biggest supporters with her fierce attitude. Meanwhile in New York, Rachel and Santana take jobs at a Broadway diner in order to make ends meet.
