Next week's episode of Glee, Season 4 Episode 18: "Shooting Star," takes place at McKinley High, which means Rachel (Lea Michele) and her NYC homies won't be featured at all! But fear not, this whack pack will be back in action during Season 4 Episode 19: "Sweet Dreams," when Rachel will reunite with her mom, Shelby, played by Broadway vet Idina Menzel.

In fact, according to Hollywood.com, Shelby and Rachel's mother-daughter reunion is a complete success! Things may have been tense between these two in the past, but the site reports that this latest reunion will “drastically” improve Rachel and her mom’s relationship.

But the best part of this happy-go-lucky episode? Rachel and Finn (Cory Monteith) will have a conversation (presumably over the phone, since they're living in different area codes) that will make audiences "blush, swoon, sigh, and squee all at the same time."

OMG, does this mean Finn will finally declare his everlasting love and sweep Rachel off her feet? Because there's only so much separation anxiety we can handle. We're desperate for this hot n' nerdy couple to get back together and serenade each other like the good ol' days!

Sob, remember back when Rachel didn't date prostitutes? Those were simpler times.
