These days, “Glee” seems to be all about the milestones. You had the graduation of the seniors in season 3, the tragedy of “The Quarterback” earlier this year, and then the 100th episode and the subsequent end of New Directions as we know it.
So what’s the next big episode? Think “Opening Night.” We’re surprised in a way that this is not the season finale, given that the story revolves all around Rachel Berry on “Funny Girl” and the struggles and drama that comes with launching a show. Not only does she have to deal with the stresses of getting her lines and the staging right, but there will likely be many a critic in the audience waiting to tear her down in the event that she is not very good.
The synopsis below may not give away much, but it does remind you that a pair of familiar faces from Ohio are going to be stopping by for a visit:
“The night has finally arrived for Rachel’s (Lea Michele) Broadway debut in “Funny Girl,” and she has very special guests in town to support her career-defining moment.”
These “special guests” are Will (Matthew Morrison) and Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch), who arrive in New York in order to either cheer her on and boo her off the stage. Sue is there because she seems to be hate-watching like it is an episode of “Smash” season 1. Will, of course, will be his supporting teacher-self. The other importance of this particular appearance could be figuring out getting a few updates, including what Will is up to professionally (he had an application to teach Vocal Adrenaline last we saw) and also personally (he and Emma were trying to have a child).
But in the end, this will be about Rachel. Given that you cannot be treated like an instant start overnight in most cases, we expect her to be met with a mixed reaction following this show.
