‘Glee’ season 4 spoilers: Do Damian McGinty, Dot Jones appear in ‘Sadie Hawkins’?

Damian McGintyFor those of you who are excited about the return of “Glee” season 4 to TV on Thursday, January 24, we have another reason for you to potentially smile: an appearance of some more familiar faces for the “Sadie Hawkins” episode.

We just got our hands on the official press release for the episode, and one name listed on the guest cast caught our eye right away: Damian McGinty. Is Rory Flanagan really back? This surprised us mostly in that we assumed that the Christmas special was just a one-off cameo to please Rory fans, since the character still has yet to really be addressed at all in the present story of the show. However, he would not be listed here if he was absent from the episode, so possibly we’ll either get an update on what the exchange student is up to or (gasp) a proper return to McKinley High. McGinty was originally scrubbed from the cast over the summer, as the writers were running out of ideas for the character; however, they did always leave the door open for Rory to return.

As for some other memorable characters, we will once again see Dot-Marie Jones in action as Coach Beiste for the episode, along with Vanessa Lengies as Sugar “Please Give Me a Storyline” Motta, Lauren Potter as Becky Jason, and the previously-reported return of Ashley Fink as Lauren Zizes. We do know already that Fink is only going to be around for this episode, and will not be back in New Directions anytime soon.

Why do you think McGinty could be turning up on “Glee” this time around? We want to hear your thoughts below, and you can also view some more season 4 scoop pertaining to Lea Michele and Chris Colfer here.
