Joe's character was first introduced as cold and emotionally shut off, however as the season progressed he warmed to certain people and eventually started letting people in. He has also been shown to be a very passionate performer, but also passionate about performing. Whilst his kind and friendly nature has been fleshed out he is still conceited and bitchy.
Joe is originally from near Atlanta, Georgia, however he moved to Florida when he was 13 years old to start a new life with his mother. During that time in middle school he was outed by his best friend and thus developed depression over the harassment and bullying.
Joe is first seen sitting next to Nathan in English class, asking Nathan about his oxygen tubes when Nathan snaps back to him and they start somewhat of a hatred between each other. Later that episode, Joe auditions for the Glee Club, singing One Last Time by Ariana Grande, throughout the audition Mrs. Clarke catches onto him having an attitude problem but also seeing his passion.
Joe is first seen in the choir room when the group are brainstorming club names. When Angelika suggests 'The Note-Worthy' Joe agrees, along with the rest of the group on the name. Joe later joins in on a recruitment number with the rest of the Glee Club and gets slushied at the end of the performance alongside everyone else. Joe is then seen in the girls' bathroom cleaning slushie off himself, Angelika asks why he's there and Lily says it's okay because he is gay.
Later when Zach is about to audition in the choir room Joe questions him on being one of the jocks who assaulted them earlier, he dismisses Zach's hurt feelings. When Sydney auditions he's shown to be unbothered by her lack of talent.
Joe first appears in the episode at the beginning. He witnesses Sydney singing off-key and once again dismisses her. When he walks into the choir room he see's Zach, we learn here that he doesn't want to open himself up to new people, especially those that tormented him. Joe then takes a seat next to Lily in the front row, asserting himself as the 'star', in doing so he makes sure to let Lily know that he doesn't really like her, he just wanted to there. Whilst Lily gives a speech about them acting like a group, she pin points Joe when it comes to the group having their guard up. Joe however, agrees with her speech, as long as he gets to choose the song they perform, which everyone agrees to. Joe decides that the song will be Weird People by Little Mix. After the performance Joe's guard was let down a bit when he was shown to be laughing and joining in.
Later in the choir room Lily and Joe are seen to be clashing over what songs to do at Invitionals. Joe was wanting to do sassy and upbeat whilst Lily wanted stripped back. Joe argued that it was boring. Joe later witnesses Maya and Lily bitching about Alison and heads to the auditorium to see Nathan's audition.
In the choir room he and Lily battle again, this time over who is the leader of the club. Lily decides that Nathan should be allowed, and that the decision is hers because she's the leader. Joe fights back and ends up crushing Lily's spirit again.
Later Joe is seen in Science class. Zach asks to sit with him and he agrees. Zach then tries to get Joe to open up and start talking to him but Joe refuses and tells him that he doesn't like him because of his background with the football team. Zach asks Joe to meet him in choir room later on which Joe agrees to.
Joe is next seen meeting Zach in the choir room, the two sing What Do You Mean by Justin Bieber feat. Ariana Grande. Throughout the song the two had moments. As the song ended Zach was beginning to get Joe to open up when Alex intervened. Joe was threatened by Alex but he shook it off and left.
Later in the choir room when Nathan joins Joe seems to be more tolerant of the group. He tells Nathan that he'll fit in and he apologizes to Lily, ending in a group hug.
The next time Joe is seen is during the Invationals performance where he performs alongside the Note-Worthy in Sax by Fleur East.
After the performance Joe asks Zach if he's okay, leading Zach to have a mini outburst which leaves Joe confused.
Joe is first seen reacting negatively to Kyle's performance, he is next seen in the boys bathroom, noticing that Kyle has a drinking problem. Later on he and Lily question Maya on Kyle's drunk state at school, in the process they learn that he's a rich kid - he then gets into an argument with Kyle over him showing up drunk to school, the argument almost gets physical but Kyle leaves instead.
Later Joe, Lily, Nathan, and Maya all appear in the choir room and explain what happened, with Kyle appearing behind them and apologizing, to which Joe scoffs at, after a while of mulling he accepts Kyle's apology.
Later on Joe is asked by Kyle to join in on a group number and together, Joe, Kyle, Zach, and Matt sing Fix You. However Joe was shown to not be enjoying the song and when Kyle joined and stood next to him there was only resentment between them.
Joe was last seen with some of the others before heading off to a party.
Joe is first seen in the choir room, giving Lily the cold shoulder when she sits next to him, then when Mrs. Clarke tells the group the theme of the week he 180s his attitude and cheers and screams for Musicals week. He then snaps at Maya for her irrelevant comment regarding musicals. Joe then begs the question about getting new members for Sectionals, to which he snaps at Kyle when he suggests something, leading Mrs. Clarke to snap at Joe, which leads to him enjoying Kyle storming out of the club. Joe suggests that every new member of Glee Club gets a part in the school musical, the club agrees, except Nathan and Zach, who Joe questions. Joe and Nathan have a stand off about being explicit with their sexuality - later as the session ends he runs over to Zach who is taken away by Nathan, leaving Joe angry and annoyed.
Later Joe is seen in the next glee club session, questioning why Emma doesn't have to audition, after being asked is he excited to see it, he responds with his usual cold brush off. He shows no support for Emma after the audition is over - straight after Nathan questions the musical theme, leaving Lily and Joe annoyed, Nathan suggests a competition for the solo which Joe agrees with. After Emma insults Sydney Joe defends her. As the group left the room, he is once again ignored by Zach, annoying him more.
Joe watches the interaction between Nathan and Zach and expresses his anger to Nathan, he then storms off. Later he caught up with Zach and is stunned to find out that Zach knows he likes him. He snaps at Nathan who shows up because he thought he was setting him up. Nathan snaps back, leaving him embarrassed.
Joe was brought up by Nathan and Zach, when Zach confesses his crush for the former. He is then physically seen by Nathan in the corridor, upset, he then sings I'm Not That Girl which finishes in Glee Club and an awkward look between he and Zach happens.
After the performance Zach approaches Joe and confides in him about his sexuality and feelings. However, not getting the reaction he wanted, Joe curses Zach out.
Later Joe is again brought up by Nathan and Zach when the former states he heard them talking, after a back and forth Nathan urges Zach to go forward with his feelings for Joe. He is lastly seen getting emotional in his room over his crush on Zach.
Joe's relationship with Zach is a strained one. It began as a simple crush on a straight boy, however a revelation in Take Me Or Leave Me revealed that Zach was questioning his sexuality and did in fact feel something for both Joe and Nathan.
