Glee Season 4 Spoilers: Rachel Berry’s New Roommate — and New Details on Duet With Brody
How would Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt(Chris Colfer) be as roomies? Well, we’re about to find out! And given how much their extensive wardrobes, we’re thinking they better find an apartment with plenty of closet space.
Vulture recently paid a visit to the Glee set, and they’re dishing all sorts of exciting spoilers on the upcoming season. Among the most tantalizing were a slew of song spoilers, including the reveal of the song behind the super-sexy number that Lea Michele and Dean Geyer (Brody) were tweeting about last week. That song is — drumroll! — “Oops!... I Did It Again.”
Rachel’s motivation for performing the tune is to prove to song for her NYADA instructor Cassandra July (Kate Hudson) that she really can be sexy. Vulture reports that Rachel will preface the song by saying, “I do have it in me to be sexy. Sexy enough to play Evita. And Roxie. And Charity.” You don’t have to convince us, Rachel — we think you can do anything!
Rachel will then get help from Brody in order to make the choreography extra-steamy. This will include Brody grabbing Rachel from behind, along with what the article refers to as “suggestive humping.” Yikes.
Other songs to look forward to in the first few episodes are Blaine (Darren Criss) performing “Everybody Wants to Rule the World,” and Brittany morosely singing Britney Spears’ “Everytime.” Apparently, there will also be a scene with Brittany (Heather Morris) lying face down on her bed while missing Santana(Naya Rivera). Ugh — that is one scene that we are not looking forward to!
And Vulture also gives details about new sets being built, including the loft with exposed brick which will be the Brooklyn abode for Rachel and Kurt. They’ll decide to room together after Kurt finds himself bored in Lima and lands a Vogue internship in NYC. Rachel will also benefit from his internship, as Kurt’s Vogue mentor Isabelle Klempt (Sarah Jessica Parker) will give her a stylish new makeover. Could this be the end of Rachel’s headband era? Sob!
For the time being, the set for Schue’s apartment has been dismantled, since we know that the adults will be less of a focal point. Also less of a focal point will be “half of the graduates,” as they won’t return except for holidays or special occasions. And get this — even Finn and Santana “will be used very sparingly in the first four episodes.” If you ask us, this news does not “rule.”
