Between Finn (Cory Monteith) and Rachel’s (Lea Michele) almost-nuptials, Karofsky’s (Max Adler) heartbreaking struggle, that terrifying cliffhanger that left us scared for Quinn’s (Dianna Agron) life — Glee’s winter finale left us on the edge of our seats.

The show itself might not be returning until April, but because we couldn’t wait, we had a wee chat with Glee’s resident Irishman, Damian McGinty (Rory), to see if he would give us any hints about what’s to come.

“I can just say that I think it will remind people to be grateful for what they have in their lives,” Damian tells us of the first episode back. Gulp. That doesn’t necessarily sound promising for Quinn, does it? Luckily, he continues, “I think people are going to like it. That's all I can say.” [Editor’s Note: Here’s a pretty interesting Quinn spoiler photo, if you’re curious.]

The show has also given us glimpses of Damian’s fellow Glee Project winner, Samuel Larsen (Joe), but Damian says what we’ve seen is just a promise of more to come.

“I think, in many ways, his introduction is going to be the same as what happened to Rory,” says Damian.  “Sam will get songs to sing, but this year, there’s so much is going on on Glee. I'm kind of hoping they're just slowly trying to blend us in for next year.”

Does that mean Rory’s visa may not be expiring after all?

“Well, it may not be. I'll let the audience figure that one out. It may get figured out, but we'll have to wait and see,” he says. “I'm definitely there until the end of the season.  But as for next year, I have no idea. We'll sit down and talk with the Glee producers soon, and we'll figure out what's going to happen.  But I have my fingers crossed and just working hard.”
