Promo for Glee Season 5, Episode 17: “Opening Night” — Rachel Chokes? (VIDEO)

On this week’s episode of Glee we learned that Artie (Kevin McHale) has chlamydia and Mercedes (Amber Riley) is waiting until she gets married to have sex, much to Sam’s (Chord Overstreet) dismay, but next week is all about Rachel (Lea Michele) as Funny Girl finally has its highly-anticipated opening night on Broadway. It’s a big deal for Ms. Berry and a momentous occasion like this is the perfect opportunity for all of her pals to show her their support.

As the promo below shows, you can expect to see Blaine (Darren Criss), Kurt (Chris Colfer), Mercedes, Sam, Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz), and yes, even Santana (Naya Rivera) — fresh off her Lesbos vacation — cheer Rachel on in Season 5, Episode 16. Also stopping by the Big Apple next week? Sue (Jane Lynch) and Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison)! Even though Rachel has left Lima behind, we’re sure she’ll be thrilled to get a visit from her former mentor and...Sue, although Sue seems to have journeyed east for the sole purpose of watching Rachel “choke”.

Unfortunately for Rachel, it looks like her nerves could get the best of her before opening night. “Guys, it’s bad,” Kurt tells the gang as we see Rachel wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat, and angrily cut Sam’s guitar strings.

Will she be able to pull it together in time, or is Funny Girl’s opening night destined to be a total failure? Check out the promo for yourself below and tell us what you think!

Glee Season 5, Episode 17: “Opening Night” airs April 22 at 8 p.m. ET on FOX.
