What Happens Next: Is Another Glee Proposal Imminent? Will Rachel Be Funny Girl?
TVLine hits rewind on the TV season’s biggest “What Happens Next” finales, then invites you to predict the cliffhanger outcomes
There were just as many questions as there were resolutions at the end of Glee‘s Season 4 finale.
Will and Emma got hitched in the choir room. New Directions pulled off the win at Regionals. And Brittany, having possibly made “the most important scientific breakthrough of the 21st century,” said goodbye to McKinley and headed off to start her work at MIT — without finishing her senior year! (Yep, the end of Season 4 didn’t correspond with the end of the school calendar, meaning Season 5 could/should find time for Nationals, and McKinley senior prom and graduation.)
While there’s no definitive word about how exactly Heather Morris’ real-life pregnancy will affect her screen time as Brittany, the MIT development should allow the show’s writers to scale back her presence in the early parts of Season 5.
Two other story arcs, however, ended on truly cliffhanger-y notes. Rachel gave a stunning rendition of Celine Dion’s “To Love You More” at her callback audition for Broadway’s Funny Girl — but we were left wondering whether it was enough to convince producers to cast the college freshman/complete unknown in what’s presumably a multi-million dollar revival.
Blaine, meanwhile, sought to counsel of an older lesbian couple while making plans to propose marriage to his estranged sweetheart Kurt. And while Kurt’s dad Burt tried to talk Blaine out of it — remember how that worked out for Rachel and Finn, he asked — the season ended with a shot of Blaine clutching some kind of ring box.
Assuming there’s not much time lapse headed into Season 5, what will happen with Rachel’s Broadway dreams? And will Blaine ignore his possible future father-in-law’s advice? Take our polls below — and then hit the comments — to weigh in on how these cliffhangers will play out.
