And apparently, this is NOT going to be like last time when she showed up for five episodes just to run off with Puck and Quinn's baby and never make an attempt to be a real mother to Rachel Berry! Apparently, she's sticking around AND getting a BIG ARC!
When Lea Michele stepped onto the scene with Glee and it was revealed her character was adopted by a gay couple, the world immediately knew that Idina Menzel was the only choice to play her biological mother. The show delved briefly into Rachel Berry's relationship with her momma Shelby Corcoran in season one, but things didn't really work out well for the mother/daughter duo. Idina was MIA in this past season, but Ryan Murphy just revealed that she will be returning in season 3 for a major story arc! He raves that he's "excited" to have Idina back with "the family again" and revealed she'll be joining the teaching staff of McKinely High, making things awkward for both Rachel, Will Schuester and the Glee club.
Alright! Now we're getting somewhere!
We won't lie - we're still pretty devastated about the news that this will be the last season for our favorite characters. However, if the team can give their characters the right send off, it will surely ease the blow. That DEFINITELY means Rachel confronting her mommy issues and Quinn facing hers! If they don't have an episode about Quinn meeting her daughter, this is all just a waste! You hear us Ryan! A WASTE!
Are U excited to have Idina back? Any songs U hope she'll sing? Are UR fingers crossed that her path will cross with April Rhodes???
