Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 03.07.2013
Michele talks Rachel's potential pregnancy, Santana vs. Brody and more...
Lea Michele recently spoke with THR about the remainder of the upcoming season, season five plans and more. Check out the highlights:
On whether Rachel's pregnancy scare will be addressed: "It's addressed whether or not she's pregnant. It doesn't get very deep beyond that. That's as much as I can say but you'll find out in next week's episode."
On Santana taking up resident in Rachel and Kurt's loft: "Michele: Santana is doing her job as a friend and starts to question Brody and what's going on with Rachel. But she doesn't stop and it gets to the point where Kurt and Rachel say whether or not she's right or wrong, she's going too far with it. At the end of the day, Santana is the voice of reason and makes everyone have to look at things."
On Brody's apparent secret escore life: "You're going to see a whole lot! (Laughs.) We have an awesome musical number -- one of my favorite songs by Marina and the Diamonds -- that really gets you in on what he's up to. There's a fantastic scene coming up where my knight in shining armor comes to inspect what's going on and that person is Finn. The scene between Finn and Brody is insane."
On the big throwdown between Brody and Finn: "Santana tells Finn. She smells a rat and calls Finn to come and investigate what he's up to. Whether or not he's an escort, Santana thinks he's dealing drugs, Rachel thinks he's working as a cater waiter; it could be any of those three things...It's pretty hardcore! (Laughs.) I've got some great guys defending me! We shot the scene where she finally figures out what's going on with him and that scene was pretty incredible to shoot as well. There's been a lot of dramatic stuff this season. "Creep" is somewhere within the Rachel and Brody rise and possible fall."
On whether Rachel will tell Brody about the potential pregnancy: "As of now, it's still pretty top secret. Finn is back for this scene. I never go tot work with Cory, so Finn and Rachel don't have any scenes together and what ever he does, he does without Rachel knowing. It's really great to see Santana and Finn come to her defense."
On how all this will affect Rachel: "Rachel is experiencing life as a young adult; these are things that young girls do and it's important to address the possible risk of having sexual relationships with people. That's a great thing about Glee is that we don't just make it a problem-free situation; Glee always addresses the possible risks of sexual activity. At the end of the day, Rachel is a young adult and that is a very common thing with on-and-off relationships that they would have a love affair together at the wedding. Rachel is a little confused and you do see that later on that she realizes the affect of, "What have I been doing?" Rachel always comes back to the fact she needs to get back to herself and she has a big audition coming up for Funny Girl and once all the boy drama is out of the way, she's back on track to her original goal."
On the potential season-ending storyline for Rachel: "I don't know, the only thing I can guess is whether or not Rachel is going to get cast in Funny Girl. I think that's going to be the cliffhanger: Does she get it or does she not get it? I hope she gets it because in my eyes, I'd love to see her in a show next year in that world of rehearsals, a cast, is she the lead or understudy? That [Broadway] was my world and I'd love to get to play that story line out next year but I don't know whether not it's going to happen. If I could hope for a potential cliffhanger, that's what I would hope for and that she would get the Funny Girl role and that would be the story line for Rachel next year."
On season five plans: "I've heard of one formula for next year that is very exciting. I have an idea of what it is. It's new and different than what we've done this year. You'll still get to see both locations because I'm still going to be on the show and so are the kids that are in high school. But who knows what the whole year will be or what the show will morph into throughout the year. It will be very exciting -- and I'm not going anywhere!"
