"The season finale is more of a midpoint storyline," Chord Overstreet (Sam) tells The Hollywood Reporter. "This season has been more of a journey and emotional roller coaster and one that needed more time."
It’s worth noting that Rachel (Lea Michele) has her final Broadway audition in the Season 4 finale, so whether or not she gets the part just might be a cliffhanger, as well. Show creator Ryan Murphy teased earlier that he wants a “big chunk” of Season 4 to “follow one particular story that we're getting ready to launch at the end of this year." He says that this particular storyline will be “a big cliffhanger,” and teases that it will involve both Rachel and several other characters.
But enough of all this talk about what we don’t know. Chord reveals that some of this season’s burning questions will be answered in the finale. For one, we will learn whether or not the New Directions win Regionals. Plus, the identity of Ryder’s (Blake Jenner) Catfish will finally be revealed. Oh, and guys? He promises it will be very dramatic.
