It might be shorter than your average Glee promo, but there are still clues, teases, and heartbreaking moments that give us a taste of what’s in store. We’ve broken down the video: second-by-second, frame-by-frame. Take a look at what we figured out.
Scene 1a: Tuesday, April 10. Yep, April 10. Glee still won’t return for another 3 weeks. But that’s not too long to wait, right? We can manage...
Scene 1b: Flashback to Quinn’s car accident. Rachel (Lea Michele) is heard in a voiceover. “I can’t stop thinking about Quinn!” Flashback to the time of the accident. Quinn (Dianna Agron) is driving along in her car. She glances down at her phone. Suddenly, she’s being plowed into by an oncoming truck. Do we really have to see this again, Glee? It was hard enough to watch the first time!
Scene 2: First... the accident. Cut to Rachel sitting in the choir room. She looks absolutely distraught. “It’s not right. I’m so, so sorry.” Does she feel responsible for Quinn’s crash? Q was only texting and driving because she was running late to Rachel’s wedding. But does that really mean Rachel is the one to blame?
Also, who is Rachel saying “I’m sorry” to? If the voiceover is really from the choir room scene as the promo makes it seem, why would she be apologizing to the New Directions? Perhaps we’re just overly hopeful, but it sounds like Quinn may be alive — and Rachel is apologizing to her in person. Or are we just getting out hopes up? Scene 3: Now... the aftermath. Rachel’s in the choir room again. She shakes her head in sorrow. “It shouldn’t be like this.” Be like what, Rachel?! Does this mean that Quinn is dead? Or did she somehow survive the crash, but now finds herself facing some sort of horrible lifelong injury? We never see Quinn’s face in the promo, so it seems impossible to tell! (Though, if you’re up for spoilers, we have a pretty good idea of what really happened.)
Scene 3b: Cut to a waiting room. Emma (Jayma Mays), Sue (Jane Lynch), and Will (Matthew Morrison) look sad and anxious as they sit in what appears to be a waiting room. Is it a hospital waiting room? If so, this seems like a pretty good indication that Quinn is alive. She may not be doing very well, but at least she made it through the wreck still breathing!
