Welcome back, Rachel Berry (Lea Michele)!
With her NYADA audition rapidly approaching, Rachel is reverting to her pilot ways on Glee this Tuesday, meaning she's at her neurotic best, and we couldn't be happier.
So how is Rachel preparing for the biggest audition of her life? And why is she refusing to kiss fiancé Finn (Cory Monteith)?! We've got an exclusive sneak peek at "Choke," which will answer those questions—plus you'll finally find out what Rachel's "presidential" face looks like.
How ah-mah-zing is Rachel's inner monologue throughout the scene?!
In typical Rachel fashion, she's super focused and regimented before the NYADA audition to ensure that she's in tip-top shape.
Some of the precautions she's taking? No doorknobs (don't worry, Finn's more than happy to play her personal door-opener) and no kisses (sorry, Finn, you win some, you lose some!), as well as no stepping on cracks. Oh, and walking backward down the hallway. Can't forget about that! Glee fans should probably be preparing themselves for a cloudy day on Wednesday, as Rachel is determined to shine so bright during her audition that "the sun is going to cry with envy."
We're thinking Finchel fans will particularly love the moment when Finn helps Rachel practice her many faces in the mirror. (How cute is Finn with the timer?!) Our favorite? Presidential! Plus, there's a little wink—literally—to fans of Rachel and Puck (Mark Salling) (remember those days?!) thrown in the clip for good measure!
Still, Rachel's intense and makeout-less preparations may all be for nothing considering the episode is titled "Choke" and the synopsis says Rachel and Kurt (Chris Colfer) will receive news that could possibly send their well-laid plans into a tailspin. Yikes!
Glee airs Tuesday at 8 p.m. on Fox.
Who do you think will choke during their NYADA audition, Rachel or Kurt? Which of Rachel's faces is your favorite? Sound off in the comments!
