Rachel and Mercedes Throw Down in New ‘Glee’ Preview

When was the last time everything on Glee felt this urgent? I’d say it hasn’t been since Season One. One thing is clear, when Ryan Murphy promises to make something better, he actually makes it better. Of course I’d prefer this season without the presence of the spoiled brat (and unnecessary character) Sugar Motta, but we can’t have everything. As for what’s coming down the line, this preview for next Tuesday’s episode reveals Brittany kicking some serious butt in the class president campaign, Rachel and Mercedes battling for the lead in West Side Story and exchanging menacing glances, all with the schmaltzy background music of gleeks covering Coldplay — another instance proving you can’t win ‘em all. Despite the song choice, this preview does exactly what it needs to do: it makes us ravenous for an answer. And we are. We really are.

Glee airs next Tuesday, Oct. 4 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
