Bright lights, big city, new Rachel Berry (Lea Michele)? TVLine has the scoop on the Glee Season 4 premiere — including the most important part: the title. Drum roll please! Glee Season 4, Episode 1 is reportedly entitled “The New Rachel.”
“She’s starting fresh,” Executive Producer Brad Falchuck teased at Comic-Con, adding that Rachel will face “the challenges of New York and being there alone.” Cue montage of Carrie Bradshaw-esque high-heeled solo wandering!
Rachel won’t just battle loneliness; she’ll also be battling a new authority figure in her life: her new dance teacher, played by Kate Hudson. The diva dancer is big on “negative reinforcement,” Brad says, which we all know hits hard on Rachel’s sensitive ego.
Toto, we’re not in Lima anymore! Do you think Rachel will be able to weather the strain of big city living — or will she run back to Lima (and possibly Finn)?
