We haven’t seen a NYC ticket stub or anything, but that bright red coat and pink suitcase are the exact same ones she’s carrying in the Season 3 finale photos of Rachel in NYC we saw over the weekend.
And yes, Rachel was alone in NYC for those photos. No Finn in sight. Did Rachel really just leave her fiance (and possibly now husband) back home in Lima, Ohio, while she rides off to NYC to pursue her Broadway dreams? There has to be more to this story. There just has to!
