Is Rachel Berry pregnant? Would Glee do this? We take a closer look in to who the baby’s daddy is, what it means for the series, and whether or not Rachel will face one of the toughest situations young pregnant women have to face.

For those who don’t know, the final scene of Glee 4×14 “I Do” showed Rachel looking through her planner/diary thing and eventually in the bathroom as she takes a pregnancy test.

We discussed this situation on the latest episode of Glee Chat this week. Here are some questions (and our subsequent responses) to what’s going on with our leading lady, miss Rachel Berry.

Is Rachel actually pregnant?

As we talked it through on Glee Chat, we thought that there’s no way the show would just throw that in at the end of an episode only to come back in episode 15 and say “false alarm!” Plus, do you remember this story from a few months ago that pointed to one of our leading characters getting pregnant? It looks like all signs point to “Yes.”

Who dat is my baby’s daddy?

Most of you are probably too young to get that B-Roc & The Biz joke but I’ll leave it right here for you to check out. Anyway, yes, which guy-we-first-meet-in-a-shower-singing-80s-music is going to be Rachel’s new baby’s daddy? On Glee Chat, there was talk that it might be too soon after their hookup in “I Do” to think that it’s Finn’s. However that was shortly debunked because, well, it’s Glee, and as Ryan Murphy says, you’re supposed to suspend judgement so that they can get away with things so you can enjoy the show! Does Rachel have an idea as to who it is? We suspect some baby’s daddy drama in the coming episodes, for sure (how could there not be?).

On a more serious note, will Rachel confront the idea of an abortion?

Assuming that she is pregnant, and knowing that Glee loves to go down these paths when it comes to big button issues, we suspect Rachel will not only confront the idea of an abortion, but probably also have one. Look, let’s face it, it’s a serious thing that A LOT of young women (and even girls) have to deal with a lot more than people probably realize. However, we just can’t see Glee giving it’s lead female character a child to carry along as part of her story line. Rachel’s end-game is her catching the roses her husband Finn is throwing to her during the curtain call of Funny Girl on Broadway. That’s where this train was going the whole time – and we all know it, including Finn in last week’s episode. We just don’t see how a 19 year-old, egocentric Rachel, on her way to Broadway where she belongs, and a still-doesn’t-know-what-to-do-in-life Finn will be able to deal with a child both in the context of the show and in regards to how RIB writes the story.

Final thoughts on ‘Glee’

I think that Rachel is pregnant with Brody’s baby. There may be another storyline surrounding safe sex coming up (surely Rachel’s not just humping around without condoms and other forms of contraception, right?). I also think Rachel will make the very dramatic, emotional decision to have an abortion.

What are your thoughts about Rachel being pregnant? Do you think it’s Brody’s or Finn’s? Could it be someone else’s? Glee will return in 3 weeks with the new episode “Girls (and Guys) On Film,” but don’t look to the preview for any hint of what Rachel’s thinking, there’s not much there.

If you love this kind of conversation and banter, check out our exclusive Glee podcast, Glee Chat, where several of Hypable’s top Gleeks get together every week after the latest episode to discuss what went down!

  • http://twitter.com/Javi4Real Javiera Herrera

    I agree. I think Rachel will have an abortion. and that decision-making process is going to be amazing. But I don’t think it’s Brody’s baby; I think it’s Finn’s…..

  • http://twitter.com/Merina2 Merina

    Eek! I really, really hope they don’t go down the abortion plot line. From a personal perspective, I would find it uncomfortable to watch – and, well, I just really don’t want to stop watching one of my beloved shows XD – but it certainly seems to be a distinct possibility.

    However, if it is his child…I think Finn would want to have a say in this matter. I can easily see him offering to take the child off Rachel’s hands once he/she is born, which could make for an interesting new direction regarding his character.

  • http://www.facebook.com/amber.carney3 Amber Carney

    I would be extremely offended if Rachel got an abortion. I feel like there are so many people out there who feel very strongly about that topic that it might be something TOO controversial for them to do and could potentially lose them tons of viewers. In the words of Dr. Seuss, “A person’s a person, no matter how small.” Abortion is killing a person, and I don’t think even Rachel could stoop that low.

    I also want to point out that she has struggled with the fact that she grew up without her mother, so that may play into her decision of keeping the baby or at least being a part of it’s life.

    However, i don’t think that she will even have this chance, I think they may go down the miscarriage route, after a huge fight with Brody (if he’s the father). That seems like the best way for them to split and to avoid the controversy of her getting an abortion.

    These are just my thoughts, sorry if my views on abortion offend anyone.

    • Jess

      Just as an FYI, that Dr. Seuss quote is not meant to support the anti-abortion argument. The Dr himself, and his wife, after his death, have gone so far as to take legal action against pro-life agendas using that line as their slogan. If those are your beliefs, that’s fine, but I’m tired of seeing people use that quote to support their arguments when Dr. Seuss was a very famous pro-choice supporter.

      • alazear2

        Thank you. Most people dont seem to realize that the dr. was actually quite liberal (anyone whose read the lorax can tell you that). In fact Horton Hears a Who, where that quote is from is actually an allegory for the Hiroshma bombing and the latter occupation of japan by ameica.

    • Ev42

      I don’t really see WHY they should avoid the controversy – people (especially, in my experience, The American Public) are offended by almost everything, particularly conservative viewers who are more into holding their own opinion as gospel rather than engaging in nuanced discussion on sensitive topics. That doesn’t mean that the rest of us – the somewhat reasonable people – shouldn’t have that discussion, and considering the recent trend of conservative US politicians passing bill after bill restricting women’s rights to abortion (a Very Bad Thing), I think it’s a very important discussion for Americans in particular to keep current and never ignore or stop discussing.

      • http://twitter.com/Merina2 Merina

        Nuanced, balanced discussion is one thing. But I have a feeling Glee would push for a very strong pro-choice stance, which…could turn off a lot of viewers, I think. Myself included.

        Just my opinion – I could be wrong. The show never fails to surprise me :)

        • Ev42

          I still don’t see why they shouldn’t push pro-choice for Rachel. They’ve already had a character who was pro-life & decided to not have an abortion (Quinn), so why on Earth would it be a problem if Rachel’s strongly FOR one? That makes one character against, one for.

          So if people have problems with Rachel having an abortion, that would be because they can’t handle the reality of them and respect that it’s the individual’s choice, not because of Glee’s stance as a show. Glee has already had a story line depicting a pro-life choice (two, depending on how you interpret the Shelby inconsistencies). So being so offended by Glee showing the other side of the story, the other option, that you can’t watch it anymore is frankly ridiculously insular and exactly the kind of thing that limits productive discussion.

          • glee_fan

            I agree with you that it is definitely something that Rachel would consider should she be a real person. However since Glee is a television show and therefore ultimately concerned with ratings, I don’t think they would ever have her go through with it. Have a conversation about it? Get to the waiting room, maybe even the exam table? Sure. Really go through with it? Probably not.

        • Kristie

          As someone mentioned, Glee has already taken a pro-life stance through Quinn. Basically what you’re saying is, it’s fine for them to cover controversial topics, as long as they agree with you and the character does what you would do in the situation. Also, it’s a friggin TV show. The abortion would not be real. I’m sure you watch shows where people kill each other from time to time and do not get offended at that.

      • SnatcherGirl

        Yeah. So glad all people who do support life are automatically NOT “somewhat reasonable” -_- *sigh* Whatevs, I’m tots cool with it :P

        • Ev42

          I meant that to refer to the subset of conservatives who’re unreasonable & won’t hold a proper discussion (you know, the crazies?), not that ALL conservative ppl are like that. That was a bit unclear in my comment, sorry about that.
          So “the rest of us” includes every non-extremist, everyone who can accept that “humanhood” is a more complicated situation than what their religious beliefs tell them. Including pro-life people. (not, however, pro-life people who want to actually ban abortion, because frankly they’re missing all the important points & seem to know absolutely nothing about the history of abortion or how it works in society. If they had half a brain they’d realize that the safest & most effective way to reduce the amt of abortions in a community is to make birth control more readily available to women, but that’s a different discussion :P)

    • http://twitter.com/Merina2 Merina

      I agree with you completely; a person is a person, no matter how small. I think a miscarriage would certainly bring plenty of drama to the situation, and serve as an engaging plot line, without the trouble of abortion controversy.

      • http://www.facebook.com/amber.carney3 Amber Carney

        Thank you! It’s nice to see someone have the same opinion as me! Not saying the others are wrong, it’s just nice to have support. But realistically, I don’t think the producers would put an abortion on TV. Too controversial and too many people would turn Glee off for good. I’m honestly not an extremist, but this is something that would make me turn off my favorite TV show. I just don’t think I could go on with them advocating that abortion is okay.

        • Ben

          Parenthood on NBC just did an abortion storyline, and it was done very well. And the people watching Glee (if they are still watching it) are not going to be super conservative. Glee isn’t going to recycle storylines and Ryan Murphy said himself that the series will end with Rachel achieving her dreams. She is driven and she has worked hard to be where she is – she is not going to give that up. To do otherwise would be unlike her character.

          • http://www.facebook.com/amber.carney3 Amber Carney

            It would be very unlike her character to give up reaching her dreams, but they’ve also said dreams can change. I don’t know if this baby will cause her dreams to change (I don’t see that happening), but it could. I just don’t see them actually doing an abortion. Discuss it, yes. Go through with it, no. There will be some type of cop out before she reaches that point.

        • http://twitter.com/BilliamAnderson Bill Anderson

          Just saying… but Grey’s Anatomy did it with Christina… twice.
          It makes it realistic and adds for some major drama. Which is IMO what the show needs right now. Glee is at it’s best when it’s either A) making fun of itself or B) dealing with realistic real life problems.

          • PotionWillow207

            Grey’s Anatomy is a completely different show with a different target audience.

          • http://twitter.com/BilliamAnderson Bill Anderson

            But glee is quickly growing up with this New York Story line – it’s aging itself along with its fans and considering Grey’s is on at the same as Glee now, it would be nice to see it taken seriously with the older demographic of the 9/8 time slot. Once Glee is taken seriously again (like in season one) it can be eligible for awards again, not shrugged off by critics as “kid’s/tween” show.

          • PotionWillow207

            They have a lot of work to do to get there. LOL. Like a consistent storyline for starters. ;-)

      • CliveRogan

        Using that quote as an argument is without a doubt the most reductive argument I’ve ever heard.

        If a person doesn’t yet exist, they’re not a person. That’s what the abortion debate is actually about, not the size of a person. Please go get a real opinion on the subject, not a catchphrase.

        Anyway. no miscarriage in a series has ever been an interesting or dramatic event. I always call them “Convenient miscarriages” because that’s what they are, they let you have pregnancy drama, but without having to deal with baby drama. On a few occasions they do deal with the full horror of what a miscarriage is, but 9 times out of 10 they just brush it all under the rug. Given brushing complex issues under the rug is Glee’s main skill so I’d be very surprised if that’s not the way they go.

        • http://www.facebook.com/amber.carney3 Amber Carney

          My opinion is that abortion is wrong. Every person should have a chance to live his or her life from conception to natural death, even if they are put up for adoption when they’re born. Abortion is never the answer and I’m sure Glee will bring it up, but I strongly doubt they will go through with it. They are the kings of cop outs after all. My guess for this cop out will be either the false positive or a miscarriage.

          • http://www.facebook.com/mary.westmoreland2 Mary Westmoreland

            this is something that i seriously dont get why people dont
            understand about those who believe in pro-choice…if someone is pro
            choice, and i am, does NOT mean I necessarily believe in abortion and
            would ever get one….what i believe in is the right for women to CHOOSE
            whether or not they want one…if you do not believe in abortion, dont
            get one, simple as that….but i do not believe in taking that right
            away from others

            if glee does touch on this, i think it
            would be brave and honestly it is necesesary….we need to start having
            these conversations, even though so some it may be uncomfortable…i
            deeply respect your opinion and i totall get it, but just because you do
            not believe in abortion, doesnt mean others should not be able to get
            one,,,,again i believe in the right to choose

          • http://twitter.com/Merina2 Merina

            I respect your stance on this matter. However, though I believe in the right to choose, I do not believe in the right to murder.

            I see foetuses/babies as alive; therefore, I see abortion as killing. And I just can’t bring myself to support that, even if it’s another woman’s choice.

            However, you make a very good point that it would be a brave conversation to have – possibly even a necessary one, in the reality of today.

          • http://www.facebook.com/mary.westmoreland2 Mary Westmoreland

            what if the life of the mother was on the line? what if the baby would not survive anyway even if it was born? there are plenty of situations in which abortion may be the only choice so if abortion is completely outlawed, what happens to those women? it makes things more complicated than it should be…i respect that you think it murder and I would agree with you after the first trimester but before then, no i do not…and you do not have to support those women, its their life and their choice

            getting an abortion is usually an act of desperation and a very hard and emotional decision, some btw that glee can show, but it could be the best decision for the mother at the time…regardless, others should not have any say in what a woman does with her body, they may try to talk her out of it but if she is set on her decision, she should not be denied

          • SnatcherGirl

            What you’re talking about in the first paragraph would apply to the double effect rule. It’s really complicated, but a simple way of summarizing it is with the trolley situation. If you’re on a runaway trolley that’s going to hit a group of people, and you’re by a lever to switch the tracks, would you do it? The catch is, there’s ONE person at the other end of the track, opposed to a group of people. In that case, IT’S OKAY TO PULL THE LEVER. Believe it or not, Catholics believe in this.
            So the short answer to your above question about the mother’s life being on the line, there are ways to go about that ARE moral.

          • http://www.facebook.com/mary.westmoreland2 Mary Westmoreland

            ok…your analogy does not make since at all to me, maybe because it is the simplified version, is the person on the track the mother or the baby? regardless i would love to know a way to go about saving the mother life in a “moral” way…there are plenty of cases, like in Ireland recently, where the mother was in labor, things were going wrong and it was clear that she was not going to make it if she didnt have an abortion but the doctors, working in a Catholic hospital, were afraid to do it because of the heavy restrictions on abortion…since the baby had a heartbeat, they decided to go with the delivery despite the mother and her husband begging for abortion and guess what…she died, the baby died…

            that is the reason why i think abortion should never be illegal, and some situations should not be questioned and others perhaps regulated….look i dont necessarily like abortion, i think if you are not using birth control this day in age, the you deserve to have an unplanned baby, but i believe in the woman herself having control of her body, like i’ve constantly been saying…its ok if you dont not believe in abortion, i completely understand why… but dont get one and let others make their own decisions

          • SnatcherGirl

            Here, I’ll just post a link, lol xD http://people.howstuffworks.com/trolley-problem.htm Does a much better job than me.

          • http://www.facebook.com/mary.westmoreland2 Mary Westmoreland

            yea i now understand what you are getting at lol…i still believe however that it still should be the woman’s choice, if she is faced with death, she should be able to choose whether to live or let her baby live…i do not see anything wrong with either choice…just my opinion tho, everyone has one :)

          • CliveRogan

            I can’t upvote this comment enough. As a man I don’t think I have any right to decide what women do or don’t do with their own bodies. I respect that people may not want to undergo abortions of their own, but it is ultimately their choice, the same choice that every woman should be allowed to make.

        • http://twitter.com/Merina2 Merina

          I’m sorry you don’t see my opinion as being ‘real’ – but I see it as being very real. That’s why I have it.

          When does a person begin to ‘exist’, in your eyes? For me, I believe that a living, moving organism with a heartbeat after a matter of days in the womb does indeed ‘exist’.

          “I got to where I couldn’t stand to look at the little bodies anymore.”—Dr. Beverly McMillan, former abortionist

          I see this as ‘existing’. Do you disagree?

          • CliveRogan

            Quoting someone isn’t having an opinion, that’s what I was getting at. I respect the one you do have, but using a quote that ignores the argument isn’t constructive to the debate.

            To me an early stage fetus isn’t a person, it can’t exist on its own, doesn’t have its own thoughts. It’s a collection of cells that will one day be a person, but not for several months.

            This quote is almost as meaningless as the first. One person changing their opinion of abortion doesn’t render it wrong.

          • PotionWillow207

            While I am pro-choice personally, I have to say that I hate when people use the argument that a fetus can’t exist on it’s own or have it’s own thoughts so it’s not a person. Well, a 1 month old baby can’t either. Or a 1 year old. Or a 30 year old with a mental disorder. Does that make them not human?

          • CliveRogan

            Maybe I should have been more thorough with what I said though. This is way more basic than being comparable to a one month old baby. By exist on its own I don’t mean live in the long term, being able to feed and support themselves. Most people couldn’t, drop someone on an isolated island and 90% of people would be dead within a couple of weeks.

            A fetus however can’t breathe, it can’t develop. It’s life on its own would be counted in seconds if at all. It can’t breathe because it doesn’t yet have lungs, it’s a collection of cells that’s dividing and multiplying, specializing yet not yet capable of performing the task it’s required for.

            Babies, or people with mental disorders, or heavily disabled people may not be able to support themselves, but when left in a room on their own they’ll generally be fine as their bodies will continue to process their last meal and blood will continue to flow around their veins (whether assisted mechanically or not).

            This doesn’t make fetuses not human, but it does make them not alive.

          • Ev42

            Human embryos are not viable. It means that there is no way – no technology, not under any circumstances – to keep an embryo alive outside of the uterus. That is not the same. Being biologically, physically impossible to keep alive and depending on aid from other people are so far from the same thing.

            On that argument, I’d ask if you’re (and other “embryos are people” people) against IVF as well?

          • http://twitter.com/Merina2 Merina

            I don’t quite understand how this quote ‘ignores’ the argument, but I respect that it is indeed technically a quote that hasn’t come from me.

            I find it concerning that you don’t consider a ‘person who can exist on its own’ to be inhuman. Newborn babies, disabled people, and mentally ill people can’t survive on their own, either. Do you think it’s right to kill them?

            I used that second quote to demonstrate how abortionists frequently deal with ‘little bodies’ – not, as you put it, ‘collections of cells’. I don’t see this quote as meaningless. I see it as valid evidence, straight from the horse’s mouth, that aborted babies are indeed living, existing beings; ‘little bodies’.

            “Tomorrow I’ll be exactly 23 weeks pregnant, so I can legally abort my child. I’ve felt my daughter /move/, I’ve heard her /heartbeat/, I’ve seen her /move/ on scans, she has all her /organs/ needed…”—Mama-Life

            Do you still insist that a fetus isn’t a person?

          • CliveRogan

            For a full answer, check my reply to PotionWillow207 who put pretty much the same points to me.

            the ‘little bodies’/'collection of cells’ debate is semantics when you get down to it. Saying ‘collection of cells’ may have been fairly cold, but I stand by using it even while saying that Yes they are bodies.

            I’m a biology student and I’ve seen several fetuses first hand, mostly those of cows and pigs. They do look like fully developed animals, but when you get down to it they’re not. The growth of a fetus is to build the basic structure first, then follow up with the important stuff like the organs and mind.

            I imagine seeing fetuses on a daily basis would be pretty harrowing. But to take that and construct an argument around it is to remove everything else from the debate. The health and mental well being of the mother have to be taken into consideration. Women have died along with their fetuses that they knew there were complications with. What was gained from that exactly?

            And yes, fetuses are people, but early stage they’re just not living people.

    • Trey

      The fact that it is such a big issue is why Glee would do it. Just like bullying and suicide were big, and still are, when they had Kurt being bullied and Korafsky attempted suicide. Quinn had her baby in the first season, so Rachel going through an abortion would be a different aspect of pregnancy when it’s not expected. Also, even though it may offend some people such as yourself it can also help others who are going through a situation like that. People get abortions even if they don’t completely want to. It’s not something that is easy to do and having a character go through it may help people who are in that situation.

    • http://www.facebook.com/shantel.burkholder Shantel Burkholder

      I understand that the Dr was a very liberal person and that people get offended by others using his quote to support their opinion, but if he didn’t say someone else would have. It’s just how people with the pro life belief view it. We believe that a person is a person no matter if they’re big, small, in the womb or outside of it. That’s why that quote is so popular in backing up our opinions.
      Is it being used out of the context that it’s original purpose was? Yes. But it is the essence of what we believe and people aren’t going to stop using the phrase just because some people are offended by it. Just like how Glee talks about highly controversial topics whether or not they offend some of their viewers because they want to get their message out there.
      I am against abortion personally but if Rachel got one on the show or if the topic was brought up I wouldn’t be offended simply because Glee likes to take the highly controversial route. I think it’s a good topic for them to discuss because there are people who are curious about the topic.
      If Rachel had an abortion would people be offended? Yes probably.
      Would some consider not watching the show? Yes probably.
      However, everyone has a different opinion.
      A miscarriage would be a fantastic plot line to bring up also. Maybe if Rachel considered having an abortion but then finding out she just had a miscarriage. Maybe they could tie them both in there. I am not sure. I don’t think she will give the baby up for adoption because they took that route with Quinn already. Rachel growing up without her mother will most likely tie into the story line. I can’t see why it wouldn’t. But I would most like to see them take the abortion route and maybe even have one significant other be for it and one be against it so we can see both sides of the story.

      • http://www.facebook.com/amber.carney3 Amber Carney

        Thanks for the back up on Dr. Seuss!

        But, I really, really like the idea of one of them being for it and one being against it! That way they could show both sides of the argument and *hopefully* not end up going through with it. That would be a great way to cut down the controversy by at least some, even if she does get one. Having at least addressed the pro-life side I could be more okay with it.

    • uncommon sense

      abortion is killing a person, war is killing a person, murder is killing a person. but so is poverty. it just is a longer and more painful death.

      • http://www.facebook.com/amber.carney3 Amber Carney

        abortion is killing a completely helpless person who has done nothing wrong and has not even had a chance to live. There’s a huge difference.

  • http://twitter.com/TrueKlainer21 KLEX.

    If it is Brody’s baby, I will go all Lima Heights on whoever is the reason behind it. With that said, I really really think it is Finn. It doesn’t make sense for it to be Brody’s baby.

    • Nina

      rachel have been having sex with brody for weeks and hadn’t had sex with finn in months. it ONLY makes sense for it to be brody’s baby.

      • Enelya

        It only takes once deary………..

    • Trey

      If it makes sense for it to be Finn’s baby then it definitely makes sense for it to be Brody’s baby because they have been having sex for months now. Also, Brody even made it very obvious that they hooked up the day before Rachel left for the wedding meaning it was just a day or two before she hooked up with Finn. However, if you mean it makes sense for it to be Finn’s baby because him and Rachel actually belong together, then I completely agree with you lol

  • Not a hypocrite

    Hmmm I think abortion is the BEST solution. It is not that dramatic as some people apparently think. Of course you should always take care of the safe sex but I dont think that there is nothing wrong to do it, if the baby is not wished. It is not human yet. And I certainly do not want to see Rachen with a baby, or even pregnant! Maybe there are some different views between American and European viewers………..

    • Alice

      I have a feeling, too that it (if it happens) it will be perceived very different in the US contra Europe. And it’s likely to start a huge debate.

      At what moment of pregnancy, exactly, do you perceive a baby as ‘becoming human’?

      As a European viewer, I’m afraid I would stop watching Glee immediately if the show takes a pro-choice stance. Sorry, Glee, but some things cut too deep!

      • Ev42

        I think the point there was that Europe (particularly western Europe) is far more liberal than the US. Ofc there are anti-choice people here too, but the general tone is far more relaxed with the subject of abortions than the American “public”…

      • Nina

        it wouldn’t be the show taking a stance it would be one character. we’ve already seen one young girl make a pro-life choice.

      • Samantha

        Once the baby is realistically viable outside the womb, which is approximately the 22 week mark. Before then it is reasonable to have an abortion if that is what the woman wishes, especially within the first trimester the foetus cannot feel any pain due to the lack of nerve endings and consciousness development and there is no way it could survive outside of the womb at the point. That is I believe the general non-religious, reasonable view on the procedure.

  • Alice

    I do think they will go down the abortion line and agree with everything you’ve written, John. Personally, I think it’s an important issue and something Glee would tackle. I’m not sure how I’m feeling about it yet since this is so not what I thought Rachel’s storyline would be this season.

  • https://twitter.com/slasher777 Alex

    So Rachel is pregnant.
    That was never NOT going to happen.

  • guest02

    Rachel could also have some kind of dramatic accident causing her to lose the baby. So even if she goes through with keeping or losing the baby, it will be that much more devastating if she makes a decision.

  • blah

    Maybe Rachel will find out its brodys but tell finn its his then plan her future with him then the secret gets out and finn kills brody and kicks down another chair and then returns at the last second to win regionals and then rachel has the baby, gives it to quinn’s mom, and becomes a total wreck.

    • Joely

      This comment is wonderful

    • Me

      That chair will never win.

    • chessjunkie

      you made my day. nicely done.

  • Anjouan

    LOL an abortion on Glee? This isn’t the 70′s. Primetime t.v. producers don’t have the guts. Including Ryan Murphy

    • Trey

      I think Ryan has a lot of guts. He likes to put the characters into situations that people can relate to and he knows that there are many women out there that have gone through abortions and it was difficult for them. Rachel may not want an abortion but may see it as her only real choice because of where she is at in her life. There are so many people who would be able to relate to that and use her story on the show to help cope with their situation.

    • http://hypable.com John Thrasher

      They’ve dealt with attempted suicide. Don’t count Ryan out!

    • http://www.facebook.com/macdor Rob Macdonald

      Really?? Friday Night Lights dealt with it

  • elliegleek_xo

    I don’t think Rachel would get an abortion or put the baby up for adoption because of her own mother in the show, also if she is pregnant I hope it’s Finns, apparently when she went through the planner she was on ‘March’ meaning if that was real Finn has a possibility of being the father, but so does Brody.

    • CliveRogan

      I’d have thought her own childhood would lead to her giving it up for adoption. She knows there are countless potential parents out there who could give the child a childhood that she couldn’t currently provide.

      • http://twitter.com/Merina2 Merina

        That’s a very good point! It would be interesting to see her go through that. Or, hey…maybe Shelby could come back and adopt her granddaughter?

    • Danica

      I agree. Maybe she’ll have a miscarriage because the show hasn’t touched on that either. Not to sound sadistic or anything, but I’d much rather see a miscarriage or abortion than another teen pregnancy on the show.

      • Cassie

        Ik I feel the same way. When I read this I thought that if Rachel was pregnant I can imagine her and Brody, in NY, on the floor with their baby on a blanket on the floor, and Kurt, Blaine, and Santana (eventually the others at some point would come see the baby) would be there sitting down watching it, too.

        • Cassie

          well i mean in their apartment in NY that they’re living in currently

      • Casey

        I believe she’ll miscarry… she’ll probably go through all the stress and drama of is it Brody’s or Finn’s… Brody will probably dip out (I mean, he’s obviously a male prositute) and Finn tells her he’ll stand by her no matter what… just when it seems perfect BAM she’ll miscarry

  • Michael

    Rachel isn’t pregnant. Emma is the one who is pregnant. That is why she is hiding from Will.

  • Luke

    Thanks for the spoilerific headline.

  • Nina

    It could not possibly be Finn’s baby. that would probably be the most ridiculous and unbelievable thing this show has ever done. it will be constantly brought up throughout the shows future as the main example for their disregard for continuity and believably if they do this.

    Fin and Rachel haven’t had sex for months, and she is back in new york a couple of DAYS after sleeping with him. it is brody’s baby. the biggest pile of bullshit on the planet if there’s even a QUESTION of it possibly being finn’s.

    • CliveRogan

      The final scene’s set a month or so later going by Rachel’s diary. It could go either way, and if she keeps it I’d be shocked if it’s not Finns.

  • Denis

    Spoiler much?

  • Trey

    I think it could be Finn or Brody’s. Brody did say that they slept together the night before Rachel left for the wedding, and then her and Finn hooked up at the wedding a day or two after. Also, we don’t know the exact timeline, so when she thought she was pregnant it could’ve been a couple weeks after Rachel and Finn hooked up at the wedding. That means it could still be Finn’s baby. I feel like talk about an abortion would be something the show would do. When Quinn was pregnant she knew she was going to keep it, so abortion isn’t something the show has really done yet. It could also be a false positive, which would be another aspect the show hasn’t touched on. They could go a lot of ways with this, but I honestly don’t think she will keep it if she’s pregnant because that has already be done, and Glee is a show that likes to put characters through different situations that people can relate to.

  • BatKid152

    AHH! Spoilers! Australia is only just up to The Sadie Hawkins Ep.

    • Lindsey

      Don’t you guys have internet in Australia….?

      • Lucia

        As bizarre as it seems, some people don’t actually illegally download. I have stopped watching Glee so this isn’t an issue for me, but at least write SPOILER ALERT in the article title so those of us that are behind can shield our eyes quick smart!

        • Lindsey

          The internet doesn’t only consist of illegal downloads but thanks for assuming that’s what I meant. You shouldn’t rant at me. I did not write the article. But any way, the title is bad but at least people don’t have to read the whole article.

        • Ev42

          1) You can stream without downloading. I’m pretty sure that’s only illegal in Japan (they did pass that super controversial law quite recently, didn’t they? Does that exist anywhere else? Certainly not in “Western” type countries. That kind of law would also outlaw viewing YouTube clips with copyrighted material. I’m pretty sure that’s not the case in Aus).
          2) You should assume that a US based news source will keep up with the US air dates of US shows. Actually, you should assume that anything online (especially if they’re not based in your country) keeps up with air dates in the show’s original country, because online discussion does not wait for the rest of the world to catch up.

          That said, maybe not the smoothest thing to put the “pregnant” in the title…

  • Ben

    Spoiler alert.

  • Sarah

    I don’t think Rachel would have an abortion or give the baby up for adoption if it’s Finn’s child. However, if it’s Brody’s, I don’t see her keeping it. Therefore (and this sounds terrible) I kind of hope it’s Brody’s, because I honestly don’t want to deal with a baby on this show. Rachel’s and Kurt’s stories are the only reason I watch this show anymore, and if Rachel keeps the baby, I think I’ll probably stop.

    • bbb

      Agree with you on that one

  • Lotte

    If she is pregnant (which I doubt as I suspect a false positive) I want her to have an abortion and more importantly to struggle with it but not regret it. Yeah, shoot me.

    She is young, ambitious, extremely talented and was raised with what I assume liberal parents. She would at least consider it. A baby would be an obstacle. Her dreams of Broadway would be delayed for years to come. I know it is a touchy and political subject but a lot of people are pro choice and would decide to have an abortion and not to regret it. I consider Rachel one of those people.

    (however it won’t happen as it is even to ballsy for Glee and she will not end up pregnant anyway)

    • SnatcherGirl

      Right, so a a human life is an obstacle?
      Sorry, just no. There should be no question about whether Broadway is more important than one’s child. Your own, freaking baby.

      • Jen

        Yes, this child that she so obviously thoughtfully considered and planned and prepared for and is perfectly capable of raising on her own at 18 by herself. Sure.

        • SnatcherGirl

          Well, I think we can all agree that the only way to create life is through sex. That sex creates life. So if one’s having sex and not willing to take on that responsibility in a “what if” situation, then that’s pretty sketch.
          And while she may not have thoughtfully planned for this, that doesn’t mean that the responsibility that’s suddenly been thrust onto her can just be eliminated by, well, literally killing it. People have to own up to their actions, even at 18.

          • Ev42

            Consenting to sex is not the same thing as consenting to pregnancy.
            I thing we can assume that Rachel and her partners used condoms and/or that Rachel was on some kind of birth control (probably hormonal, probably the pill). Sometimes, if you get really unlucky, these things fail. That doesn’t mean that you should have to pay for that bad luck for, literally, the next 20+ years of your life and never have the career you wanted and never get to even try to fulfill your dreams. Especially in a country like the US that offers extremely little in terms of social and economic support.
            Also, McKinley is the shittest of schools so it’s actually depressingly possible that she and Finn, at least, never even had proper sex ed, because American politicians and conservatives don’t realize that that’s a thing that needs to happen in any modern society. They’re likely to only have had abstinence only “sex ed”, which is the surest way to ensure unwanted pregnancies and STIs among any young population. (and yeah, generally I think these are things that kids should research before they have sex, the internet is a thing, but Finn’s not the brightest and Rachel totally lives in her own head, so maybe they didn’t…)

      • uncommon sense

        yes. babies are a huge obstacle. they are apse is also the surest way to the poor house for young mothers.

        • uncommon sense

          opps. I meant “yes, babies are a huge obstacle. they are also the surest way to the poorhouse for young women,”

          • Emilysmommy9412

            I’m a young mother, married, and financially stable. I personally think that if a young women becomes pregnant that if she really puts her mind to it she can make her and her babies dreams come true. She may have to work two or three jobs but it’s possible. I’ve seen it and I am doing it right now.

          • Emilysmommy9412

            Also, abortion is not birth control, it’s the solution when adoption, taking care of your baby on your own, and actual birth control isn’t an option. I don’t agree with abortion because of personal experience [long story...] but I am pro-choice every one has their own opinions and I am not going to try and change them. We all believe what we want to believe.

  • http://twitter.com/sapirmizrahi2 sapir mizrahi

    Brody’s and abortion.

  • nova

    I haven’t watched this show since the first season, but I do remember them already doing an ‘unwed mother in her prime,’ ‘who’s the daddy?,’ ‘will she or won’t she?’ story line.

  • jordan.d

    wow, spoiler much? some of us have to wait for Glee to become available on hulu…

  • thegarbar13

    If i’m correct the planner said March. Not entirely sure but I read that because it shows her flipping to the next month/week.

  • Kristen

    Brody and rachel never ever had sex they just kiss there not even dating when rachel went back to ohio for wills wedding she slept with finn now she’s pregnat

  • Corin Boswell

    The whole abortion/adoption thing aside… did Rachel sleep w/ Finn when he was in NY during the breakup episode? Is it possible she’s just now realizing she might be pregnant? Like, maybe she doesn’t have a regular period and is only just now realizing she should be worried. I am really not rooting for it to be Brody’s but we’ll just have to see. There was something off about him in my mind from the beginning… even though he is really great eye candy.

  • http://twitter.com/BilliamAnderson Bill Anderson

    My theory: She will try and hide it from Kurt, Brody, Finn and Santana, & only talk to Quinn to about it (Giving Diana more time on the show, making her plot line relevant again) She’ll get to the point where she goes to the clinic for the abortion, but then her subconscious (Old Rachel) will kick in after having some really deep conversations with Quinn. She’ll decide to keep it, but she’ll lose it in a miscarriage… This will give a chance for some HUUUGE Ballads and wake her up into not sleeping around. The only reason why I think she won’t give it up for adoption is because it would yet another “Been there, done that” story line for Glee. I can’t really see them taking the same route again — Although if they do it, it could lead for some awesome parallels with Season One.

    • http://twitter.com/BilliamAnderson Bill Anderson

      Also: for those who said that it’s not going to happen because producers wouldn’t put that on Prime time? Grey’s Anatomy has done it twice and Parenthood has also. It’s a real life issue and that should addressed. Whether you’re prolife or prochoice.

    • Andy

      Dianna has pretty much left the show, i don’t think she is looking for more time on it nor are they trying to write her back into it

    • Marie

      Well, I’m pretty sure she’ll talk to Santana, since in the promo you see Rachel crying with Santana looking confused and sad for her.

  • http://twitter.com/Yesennia1DFan Yesennia1DFan

    Brody is not the father because they didnt had sex yet she said she will wait if you saw episode “I do” She told that to finn that she is not ready to have sex with brody so the father might be finn not BRODY!!!!

  • Maggie

    Seems unbelievable that someone as strong as Rachel would be stupid enough to NOT use birth control. I will stop watching if this becomes a story line. Can you imagine the response if she gets an abortion? What is the creator trying to say that only oil you have gay sex you won’t get pregnant?

    • Andy

      Well it’s the only 100% effective birth control that exists today, even abstinence didn’t work that one time……

  • Rose

    I kind of hope that she does consider abortion. It’s a plot line that hasn’t been explored on the show and isn’t really talked about on a lot of tv shows. I’ve seen countless teenage girls on tv decide to keep their baby, or to give it up for adoption, but I’ve never seen a show that dealt with abortion. I hope they at least have her look into it.

  • ew_rude

    wow hypable. could we try leaving spoilers out of titles maybe? seriously.

    sincerely, a pretty peeved person.

  • Emily

    Seriously, I think it is a false positive. It will be the wake up call that Rachel needs to finally get out of this horrible relationship with Brody and ultimately (doesn’t have to be right away) find her way back to Finn… :D
    Glee have a track record for doing this – e.g Quinn’s car accident. They create situations just like this one to bring viewers back from the hiatus.
    The only, and I mean only, way that I think she would /actually/ be pregnant is if Lea is…
    P.S (I don’t watch Grey’s, but wasn’t it confirmed that Grey is pregnant & that was the spoiler that they were teasing?)

    • http://hypable.com John Thrasher

      This is interesting…and I hadn’t thought about it yet. A false positive would be PERFECT…they could drag it out a bit and then wrap it up. I’m betting this is what happens.

      • Emily

        I think it would be great – it would create awesome drama, but not to much having to handle things like abortion…

      • lulu

        it would be really unrealistic though, false positives are pretty much an urban myth, they never happen! False negatives can happen though.

        • PotionWillow207

          It’s not an urban myth, but it is very rare. It can be caused by the woman being on medication, a faulty test, user error, or taking it too early. And bringing the test in contact with anything other than urine can cause a false reading, as well. False positives do happen. Do some research.

    • http://twitter.com/BilliamAnderson Bill Anderson

      Meredith is pregnant on Grey’s right now.

      unless you talking about in Season 6 when she lost the first baby?

      • Emily

        Yeah, that’s what I meant! The spoiler said one of those women were pregnant, so I guess it can’t be Rachel! Also, that spoiler was so long ago – I bet you RIB didn’t even know that far ahead back then… :D

  • Samantha

    I know it’s already been said by a few commenters, but I have to reemphasize- the title of this article is in surprisingly poor form for Hypable. I don’t want to feel like I have to avoid Hypable altogether until I’m caught up on Glee week to week. Not everybody can watch the show Thursday nights or even the weekend after.

    • http://hypable.com John Thrasher

      We can’t cater to everyone’s personal viewing schedule. There have been several days since this has aired, and we have to continue with our extensive Glee coverage regardless of where individuals may be with their viewing. That being said, we have a policy not to spoil for up to 24 hours after the show has aired. For more information about our spoiler policy for the future, check out this article outlining: http://www.hypable.com/2011/12/28/hypables-spoiler-policy-well-protect-you-within-reason/

      • Samantha

        Ha, thanks for posting, I didn’t know you had a specific policy (That’s pretty cool actually!). I probably would have appreciated something as cheesy and simple as “spoiler alert” in the title, only because this is a pretty big spoiler as spoilers go (and obviously is something people who have had a chance or access to watch should get to discuss). But I understand your reasoning.

      • Laura

        So what you are telling us is that your website caters only to the schedule of readers from the USA? In Ireland the lastest episode shown on TV last Sunday was the superhero one. I do not think that the rest of Europe would be much ahead of that, if at all. I have spent months avoiding the Glee articles when I see the headlines but for such a big spoiler to be in the headline at the very top of the front page of Hypable annoys me. It is not such a big deal and it won’t ruin my day but it would be nice for THE REST OF THE WORLD to be taken into consideration on a site that actively tries to build online (global??) communities.

        To be fair, this is a pretty isolated incident, but If this is what we can expect going forward I will have to take Hypable off my browsing list. I really expected better from Hypable, I have been a fan since you started and really root for you guys to do well in your futures as you put so much effort in and the site has been growing amazingly. It would have been just as easy to title this article GLEE DRAMA : RACHEL’S DILEMMA or some such. People who had seen the episode would know exactly what you’re talking about and people who hadn’t would be able to avoid the article.

        Anyway, this has been long winded but please take my opinion into consideration when setting up your policies. I would hate to see you (most of you being young, intelligent Americans) adding fodder to the general public perception in Europe (well in Ireland at least) that the Americans do what they want and don’t care how it affects the rest of the world! Why limit yourselves to making just American readers happy when you could become a must visit entertainment site for readers globally!

      • jordan.d

        I know that the show has been out for a few days, but for those of us who rely on hulu, it is not available until a week after it has aired. just sayin’

      • PotionWillow207

        Kind of unfair considering that Hypable has news for many, many different fandoms. So I should avoid Hypable when I’m looking for Harry Potter or Hobbit or TMI news just so I might avoid possible Glee spoilers?

  • http://hypable.com John Thrasher

    Just a reminder, here is our spoiler policy regarding discussing show points, everyone. If you haven’t watched then avoid fan sites! http://www.hypable.com/2011/12/28/hypables-spoiler-policy-well-protect-you-within-reason/

  • rl

    she won’t abort – this is FOX we’re talking about – but she’ll miscarry. That way, Glee has done their ‘rah rah’ for pro-life, gotten the drama they want, and don’t have to actually deal with any of it thoughtfully or respectfully.

  • rl

    Edit: ‘pro-choice’ *head desk*

  • Jennifer

    I don’t think that she will give the baby up for adoption because of how her mother felt giving her up. I don’t know how this will go down, but if Finn is the father it will give him something. He has been looking for something to give his life purpose and this will give his life purpose. Also, if it is Finn’s she can finally get rid of Brody.

    Though it could be Brody’s or Finn’s because she was going through her March calendar and Brody said when she got back to NY “I am kinda worn out from the night you left”. So, It could be either. Personally I hope it is Finn, but if it is Brody’s the show would get much more interesting.

    Rachel better not get an abortion! I will never watch the show again! I think they should visit the topic and it would be nice to explain what an abortion actually is and she won’t go through with it. Pro-Life is a big issue and if my favorite show was able to show how terrible it is I would be very happy, but I don’t think that will happen. There were 500,000 people at the march for life in Washington D.C including me. If they went through with this every glee fan there would stop watching the show!

  • Sofia Malik

    I’m not really sure which way they’re gonna go with this storyline.

    She might not want to keep the baby because she’s not ready and it would get in the away of her achieving her dreams, so she might give it up for adoption or have an abortion

    But Shelby had complications after giving birth to Rachel and couldn’t have any more children, so I can also kinda see Rachel thinking that this might be her only chance to have kids and decide to keep the baby

  • ItsKlaineBitches

    I think it’s Brody’s kid, and she will have a miscarrage. She will think about getting an abortion, go to the actual abortion place and have a Juno moment & end up not going through, but will miscarry. I siriusly doubt Rachel will follow through with the baby.

  • PotionWillow207

    One option that seems to have been left out is the idea of a false positive. Or even a phantom pregnancy.

    • lulu

      omg sick of this – false positives never happen!!! home pregnancy tests are extremely accurate – false negatives can happen, but if it come out positive, you’re defo pregnant.

      • PotionWillow207

        Um, no. I answered this in your post under John’s. Do some research.

  • Ultron

    God glee is just terrible nowadays. It started sucking as soon as Artie told Rachel and Finn to have sex. And it seems the show has hit rock bottom now. Way to go Artie.

  • Kavitha

    I don’t think that this is the same thing as the Quinn storyline, since Rachel is in college and all, but I really don’t want her to be pregnant. As relevant as this would be to how Rachel’s life is being portrayed, I’m more into her professional life with NYADA and everything. I’d like this more to be a pregnancy scare and be a wake up call.
    That being said, if she is pregnant, I would prefer it to be Finn’s baby. Brody is just a jerk, so I would hate to see Rachel having to deal with him and a baby.

  • gleeky-potterhead

    It’s ironic that you bring up the abortion plot line, because that’s how her character, Wendla, in Spring Awakening died.

    • Jen

      There needs to be a meta reference to this, like the reason Rachel doesn’t want to have an abortion is because of Wendla lol

      • PotionWillow207

        Except that Wendla in Spring Awakening is still a young adolescent and Rachel is an adult. Also, Spring Awakening takes place in the late 1800s when abortions were much more dangerous. So I don’t think modern day Rachel would use that as a reason not to have an abortion, especially with her liberal views.

  • kate

    I hope she keeps the baby and I hope you see the struggles of being a single mum and still go for her goals and in the last episode of glee you see her perform in a big musical and you see her look out in the audience to see Kurt with Blaine holding hands and Finn holding the baby and other members of the glee club.

  • Me

    She should get an abortion for the show’s sake of educating people as they usually do when tackling these issues. When it comes to big things, they usually handle it well. Though is whole situation is going to be one big bomb considering Rachel’s past. So who knows whats going to happen. The only certain thing or more lea Michele tears.

  • Jenny

    I also really hope Rachel doesn’t get an abortion. Being adopted, and my birth mother being a teen when she had me, it cuts really deep to know that teens similar to my birth mom make the decision to have an abortion (it could have been me). Since this show is very personal for me because I have stuck with it all of these years…I think I would personally not be able to watch it anymore. I don’t think Rachel’s character would be able to murder an unborn, defenseless, innocent unborn child.

  • pandaprincess143

    I agree with those that say that she will at least consider, if not actually get, an abortion if she is pregnant. This is a girl who will let absolutely nothing get in the way of her achieving her dreams, and a baby is definitely going to get in the way of those dreams. Every decision she has ever made has been to make it possible for her to pursue her Broadway dreams, and I don’t think this will be any different. I just hope that, if that is the route they go with this, they handle it with as much sensitivity and care as Parenthood did.

  • Vanj203

    Does anybody else remember the foreshadowing of Rachel’s pregnancy towards the end of season 3? Rachel went to Quinn to ask her opinion about whether to marry Finn or not. Quinn misunderstands Rachel’s intense need to ask her a serious question and says, “Holy crap! Are you pregnant?” See, I saw what you did there Glee.

  • Elle

    Let me die.
    Ryan Murphy you are trash.
    Is the misery of Glee over yet?

  • Lindsey

    What happened to Glee?

  • Migs

    I’m pretty sure Quinn would be somewhere on this story arc.

  • sdfghjkl;

    It’s got to be Finn’s.

  • Georgie

    I read a crazy theory on tumblr, and but it actually makes sense plot wise. Brody is the baby daddy, and because of his ‘prostitution’ he has an STD/STI. And, it’s this infection that causes a miscarriage. Still…it’s pretty heavy stuff for Glee :|

  • Mimi

    I think it’s Brody’s, and I’m betting his lie to her in the last episode, about what he was up to while she was gone, might be part of what pushes her into having an abortion.

  • bbp

    I just really want Rachel and Finn to be together, I would hate to see that end. One of the best part of glee is there on again and off again relationship and how much they do love each other and are meant to be. If she kept it, I don’t know it would just feel like already have tackled that part so add something else. And if anything Please don’t let it be brodys don’t think I could watch the show anymore

  • Andy

    I just hope that Quinn shows up and slaps her, like really can no one learn anything from anyone else on this show?

  • Andy

    lbr Brody, being or seeming to be a prostitute probably knows the risks of unprotected sex. Finn probably wouldn’t use a condom because he’s a douche

  • http://www.facebook.com/brandan.leathead Brandan Leathead

    This is why we can’t have nice things. Poor glee, I remember in High School being so inspired and excited by it. Now I feel like they are just worried about what music is popular and trying to stir the pot, instead of worrying about really great characters they made.

    • glee_fan

    And this comments thread shows why it will take a long time for there to be a good abortion story on mainstream American television. . .

    Honestly, I do think that’s what Rachel would do if she were a real person. Now, as to what the network will allow them to do, I’m not sure. My prediction is a false positive.

    I don’t think they would have Rachel get an abortion or adoption after the story lines of Quinn (regret) and her own mothers regret. I think they would carry out this story of “sometimes there is change of plans”. I think it would be an interesting storyline given that Finn never had a dad till he was 16, and Rachel didn’t have a mom till 16.

    Uh…the baby is Kurt’s. Duh.

    I think that the subject of abortion will definitely addressed. However, I do feel that even a show like Glee, who writers have repeatedly gotten “down and dirty” with controversial subject matter, wouldn’t allow one of their main character’s to go through with an abortion. Talk about alienating viewers.
    I also agree with previous comments that due to Rachel’s history with her own mother, I don’t really see her being willing to give the baby up for adoption (plus glee has already run that story line with Quinn/Beth).
    That being said, I see two possible paths here:
    1) Brody is the father (gag) and, given the clip of what appears to be Brody soliciting sex for money, Rachel will miscarry (another controversial topic for the writers to sink their teeth into). Or
    2) The baby is Finn’s (hurray!) and they ride happily off into the sunset (and some such nonsense.
    My personal feelings? If the baby is NOT Finn’s, I’m going to quit watching. I’m really over the finchel angst. It’s been almost 4 YEARS now. Give us the relationship we all want and let us be happy.

    To be honest, I really don’t like Brody. And if Kurt doesn’t approve, then the relationship is obviously doomed. So I’m really hoping (*fingers crossed*) that it’s Finn’s baby, and I think that it’s likely that abortion and Rachel’s life ambitions will come into the plot. It would be really stupid of the writers to just say at the beginning of the next episode: “Oh Kurt, false alarm!”, as that would be a real waste of an opportunity for a realistic (ish) plotline. And when I say an opportunity, I mean “please Glee take this opportunity, as there are so many stupid plotlines this season”.

    The look on Rachel’s face at the end of last weeks episode made it look like the pregnancy test was positive though, and contrary to popular belief there’s no such thing as a ‘false positive’ on a test there can only be a ‘false negative’ so IF she is pregnant… This is my prediction because I agree with what you’ve said: she’ll tell brody first, he’ll freak out and want her to get an abortion, she wont be able to have an abortion so she’ll tell finn and he’ll comfort her, then at some point further down the storyline, once finn has sworn he’ll stand by her even if the kid isn’t his, she’ll have a miscarriage.. That way the show gets to avoid having their lead character make a pro choice choice, and they won’t saddle Rachel with a baby – she’ll finally have a personal tragedy to sing about and help propel her broadway career…. :P

    I think that this is a very desperate attempt by the writers to pull back in the copious amounts of viewers they have lost this season by recycling storylines that rated so much better than the current ones. Glee is on the out and they will do anything to try to fix it.

    I think it’s Brody’s baby, he’ll peace out, Finn will come to the rescue (to NY), Rachel will consider abortion but decide on adoption (like her mother). Finn will go to acting school, Rachel will have the baby and suddenly decide she wants to raise it with Finn, and they’ll get married and work out how to raise it. In the end, Finn and baby will throw flowers to Rachel at the end of Funny Girl; against all odds everyone’s career and family dreams come true, the end.

    But can I just say I hope Britney stays with Sam forever, and Santana and Quinn join forces to kick ass. Britney and Sam are the typical characters on many shows that are waaaaaayyy too stupid to be funny or believable, and way too boring to be interesting. I literally cannot believe that Santana would love Britney, it’s just too ridiculous. And Santana was right, her and Quinn are two sides of the same bitch spectrum.

    i think the baby daddy is finn i say this because when rachel got home she did not want to have sex with brody and in her calender if u pause and look close enough u can see she first looks a march then april then may so it must be march in (glee time) and rachel and brody have probably not had sex in that month because if she would of had sex in or that night she would look tired or and her hair look untouched i also think that they will not have sex that night because brody was asleep

    • sammy

      please reply on what you think>

  • Haystacks

    I doubt Glee would have the guts to give Rachel an abortion, even though that makes the most sense for the character. To much backlash. Television likes to keep the subject of abortion in the closet.

  • Sophie

    I hope she doesn’t get an abortion. Not because I am against abortion but it would be fun to see Rachel handling pregnancy and rising a child. And it opens up a lot of big issues and conflicts for the show: how to be a young mother and still pursue your dreams. Young pregnant women as me could very much relate to it. :)

    oh and I hope its Finn’s. I like Brody, he is cute, but he isn’t really the father-type of guy (yet). Finn on the other hand, he is the perfect father and teacher (btw, when does Finn finally realize that teaching is his big dream?)

  • Maddie

    I want it to be Finns but I don’t think Finn would really care if he really loved Rachel

  • Adi

    Boo Brody sucks

  • Julia

  • Julia

    I think it is noah puckermans how he will do that
