Gleeks at large are anxiously awaiting the answer to two big Rachel-related questions which from shockers in the previous episode: Is Brody a gigolo? And, is Rachel pregnant or is it just a scare?
Barbara Walters tackled these two questions head on with Lea Michele, who artfully dodged the answers. She did offer a small tidbit, though, saying:
“It’s very interesting the way that they play it out and I think everybody will be happy.”
A pregnancy at this point in Rachel’s life would literally turn it upside down. Paternity would also be in question, depending on the time passage between when she slept with Brody (Dean Geyer) and Finn (Cory Monteith) (preceding and right on Valentine's Day) and when she actually took the pregnancy test.
While Lea ultimately gave nothing away, if everyone is going to be happy, it would seem that Rachel is not going to be pregnant.
As for Brody, he could have been doing a modeling shoot or any number of things in that hotel room. Whatever it was, though, he didn’t want to tell Rachel. We can’t help but wonder about Brody’s sincerity, after sleeping with Cassie (Kate Hudson), who hinted at Brody having a reputation more than once.
Tomorrow night’s episode of “Glee” brings a landmark 500th musical performance with “Shout.” Net proceeds from downloads of this single will go to the Give a Note Foundation to help expand music education for children.
The episode is called "Girls (And Boys) on Film." As previously reported, it features a tribute to movie music, which includes Blaine approaching Kurt on a romantically decorated rooftop singing "Come What May" from "Moulin Rouge."
Sherri Shepherd asked Lea if she has a favorite musical number and she immediately called out the iconic group number from the series pilot, “Don’t Stop Believin’.” She said:
“How could I not say the original Don’t Stop Believing with the original first members on that stage? Look at us! We all look so different too.”
“Don’t Stop Believin’” will remain an unforgettable series standout because the song set the tone of the show, and became a true anthem for underdogs at large to never stop believing in themselves and their dreams.
She also picked out the “Thriller/Heads Will Roll” mash up, the number in the swimming pool and during the food fight. Overall, Lea Michele still loves “Glee” and names the current season, season four, as her favorite.
“Glee” has retained its huge fan following and continues to receive critical acclaim, though many skeptics wondered if the series could thrive after several of its main characters graduated in season three.
Overall, the evolution of the characters and the multiple settings has been an easy and remarkable transition for “Glee.” We are still rooting for Rachel, Kurt (Chris Colfer), Finn, Santana (Naya Rivera) and the rest of the gang to succeed and follow their dreams—maybe even more so.
“Glee” airs at a special time tomorrow, March 7, 2013, in Flint on WSMH FOX66 at 9:30 p.m. EST. Click here for a Flint area channel guide.
