Promo for Glee Season 4, Episode 4: Our In-Depth Analysis of “The Break-Up”
If you’ve seen the promo for next week’s Glee Season 4, Episode 4: “The Break-Up,” then you know that we’re in for quite an emotional ride. Couples seem to be breaking up right and left. Relationships are crumbling. All we can do is sit back and watch.
So who is breaking up, exactly? We’ve combed through the promo: second-by-second, frame-by-frame, in search of clues. Here’s a look at what we’ve discovered.
00:03 — Rachel (Lea Michele) looks at Finn, confused and distraught. “Why are you here?” she asks. “And why aren’t you in your uniform?” Interesting. Because we bet he has some questions for her, too. Like, Who is that new guy? and Why were you making out with him?
00:06 — Will(Matthew Morrison) has some big news for Emma (Jayma Mays). “I’m officially on the blue ribbon panel.” Congrats, Will. Off to D.C. for you! Now, who could you ever find to fill in for a few months as glee club director while you’re gone? Oh, wait...
00:08 — Emma, however, is not quite as happy as he is. “I didn’t know you’d expect me to drop my entire life.” So does that mean she’s not coming to D.C. with him? What will this mean for their future... and the wedding?
00:11 — Marley has a few words for Jake. What she says is, “I really don’t like that Kitty girl. I can’t believe you do.” What she means is, You should really date me, instead. Come on, Marley. Just get up the guts and say it!
00:16 — Blaine is in tears. “I’m really sorry.” Is that it? Did they break up?
00:17 — Kurt puts his hand over his mouth. He runs away, sobbing. That definitely looked like a break up to us! Please tell us that there’s something more to the story. This can’t really be the end, can it?
00:19 — Finn, Will, and Emma are all on stage. They’re all singing the Coldplay song. Things really don’t look good for the state of any of the relationship on this show!
00:21 — Rachel and Finn are having a big blow-out. It looks like they’re back at McKinley, standing on the stage. “You were my first love!” she yells to him. He looks down at the ground. She looks up at him, her eyes fill with tears. “But I can’t do this anymore.” Is that another break up? It sure sounded like it.
