Brody Gets Shirtless! Top 5 OMG Moments from Glee Season 4, Episode 1: “The New Rachel”

This week’s Glee did not disappoint, as it was packed with crazy twists and jaw-dropping moments — especially with Kurt’s (Chris Colfer) heartfelt goodbyes to Blaine (Darren Criss) and Burt (Mike O’Malley)! Here are our picks for the top five OMG moments from Season 4, Episode 1: “The New Rachel.”

5. Brittany is funnier than ever!

We're pretty despondent that Brittany (Heather Morris) and Santana (Naya Rivera) are so far away from each other (and it didn't help that Santana wasn't even in the friggin' episode!). But it was nice to see Brit in such good spirits, despite needing to repeat senior year. In fact, her lines were amazing, including that hilarious one where she thought Mercedes got a haircut. New year, same old Brittany.

4. Marley is thrilled to join New Directions! Jake? Not so much.

There were so many new characters that we practically needed a census to keep track of them all. Our favorites? Kate Hudson was crazy sexy (and just plain crazy) as Rachel’s (Lea Michele) not-exactly nurturing dance instructor Cassandra. And we probably weren’t the only ones who wanted to give wallflower Marley (Melissa Benoist) about 10,000 hugs. Come to think of it, she’d be pretty cute with Sam (Chord Overstreet) and maybe she can encourage Sam to keep his impressions to a minimum.

But our fave new character was Jake (Jacob Artist), the brooding bad boy with a velvety voice. We can't wait for him to meet Puck (Mark Salling) this week so we can determine once and for all which is the sulkiest Puckerman ever.

3. Is Brody starting to win us over? Abs-olutely.

We don't envy Rachel, who may have to choose between absentee Finn (Cory Monteith) and the often-naked Brody (Dean Geyer), who is straight, by the way. (Thanks for the heads-up, Brody.) Sure, we miss Finn something fierce, but let's just say that we also wouldn't kick Brody out of bed. And if we were Rachel, we'd make that cell photo of herself and Brody into our phone's wallpaper immediately.

2. Blaine tells Kurt that “It’s Time” — and shows us all why Artie picked him

No one knows for sure what the future holds for Klaine (please don't break up, please don't break up...). That said, we loved their scenes this week, especially Blaine singing “It's Time” to Kurt in an elaborate sendoff that even involved jump rope. Then again, what heartfelt goodbye doesn't involve someone jumping rope?

1. Kurt and Rachel are roomies! Hooray!

Neither Rachel nor Kurt started the episode on top of the world: Rachel was living with the roommate from hell (although her roommate sure seems to be popular, if you get our drift), and Kurt wasn't exactly a natural-born barista. But we loved the way they ended the episode with that hug in NYC, about to become roomies. We have a feeling that a chore wheel is being created as we speak.

No, I definitely have a favorite.

I can't possibly pick just one!
