Ahead of her character’s upcoming pregnancy storyline in the US hit musical drama, Glee, Lea Michele has opened up about filming the emotional scenes which reveal whether Rachel Berry is, or isn’t expecting a baby!
Fans of the hit Sky1 show will know how it was reported that Lea’s character, Rachel, would be left in turmoil faced with the prospect of being pregnant.
To make matters worse if the young singer IS pregnant, she won’t know whether the father is her boyfriend, Brody, or her one-true love, Finn.
However, before she gets to that bridge, Rachel has a test to do – a test which is later discovered by her friend Santana (Naya Rovera), which results in an emotional heart-to-heart between the two alpha-females.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Michele described the scenes:
“There’s a great scene between Santana and Rachel and what I love about Santana’s character is that she says it like it is. She’s incredibly upfront and honest and she can smell when there’s something wrong, which is great but she always digs in a little too deep.
“Kurt (Chris Colfer), Rachel, Santana (Naya Rivera) and Kurt’s boyfriend all get snowed in and decide to have a movie day. What always happens when you get snowed in or stuck somewhere is all the secrets come out.
“At the end of the episode, Santana finds the pregnancy stick in the bathroom and questions Rachel about it. Rachel breaks down to Santana and it’s such a real moment when she comforts her. It’s a real moment between these two girls who you’ve wanted to be friends for so long and you finally get to see their friendship,”
And if that wasn’t enough excitement for you, it has been revealed that in the same episode of Glee, entitled feud, Will (Matthew Morrison) and Finn (Corey Monteith) will end up wrestling when a sing-off goes a bit too far.
Tension has been mounting between the two teachers, forcing the students to give them an assignment for once, in the hope that it will help them build bridges.
Their challenge is to perform a mash-up of NSYNC’s “Bye Bye Bye” and Backstreet Boys’ “I Want It That Way”, however, rather than easing tension the task has the opposite effect and the pair end up wrestling on the floor.
Watch a trailer for the new episode, feud, which is due to air on Thursday, March 14 at 9/8c on FOX, in the clip below:
