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.

Fox has moved the third and final Maze Runner movie to 2018.

The cast and crew were only a few days into filming The Death Cure in March when Dylan O’Brien suffered serious injuries on set, prompting the production to be put on a break so he could recover. When his recovery ended up taking longer than expected, the production was put on an indefinite hold.

Now, a plan to resume the shoot seems to be in place. Fox announced Friday The Death Cure will be hitting theaters January 12, 2018, which is nearly a year later than the original February 2017 date. The last Maze Runner movie, The Scorch Trials, opened last September.

Production on The Maze Runner: The Death Cure likely won’t resume until late this year or early next. Dylan O’Brien has already committed to another movie which is expected to shoot this summer.

Getting the rest of the cast and crew back together to shoot The Maze Runner finale may be a bit of a challenge since they may’ve committed to other projects that were supposed to be shooting after they finished The Maze Runner. However, the new Death Cure release date suggests Fox has found a time that’ll work for everyone.

Tom Cavanagh will return to The Flash in season 3 as a series regular, though which character he’ll be playing remains to be seen.

Cavanagh has had a unique acting challenge on The Flash, playing a different version of his character in each of the first two seasons — and now it looks like he’ll be doing it for a third season in a row, as EW confirms that he will be a series regular in season 3.

In season 1, Cavanagh played Eobard Thawne, aka the Reverse Flash, in Harrison Wells’ body. Thawne, after traveling back in time, killed the original Wells and took his form to expedite the development of the particle accelerator so he could return to his own time. Thawne was written out of existence in the season 1 finale, though, leaving fans curious about who Cavanagh would be playing in season 2.

This past season, Cavanagh played the Earth-2 version of Harrison Wells, nicknamed Harry, who was a significantly different character from the man we thought was Wells in season 1. However, in the season 2 finale, Harry and his daughter, Jesse, returned to Earth-2.

The Flash season 2, episode 6 recap Wells

So, who does that leave for Cavanagh to play in the third season?

My guess would be the Earth-1 version of Harrison Wells, who we only briefly met in a flashback in season 1. Why the original Wells? Because in the final moments of the season 2 finale, Barry traveled back in time and stopped Thawne from killing his mother. This means the timeline in which Thawne killed Wells and took his form no longer exists, so Earth-1 Wells would be the version left alive.

Assuming he does play the original version of the character, the one who was killed and had his identity stolen, it will be interesting to see Cavanagh inhabit yet another version of the character. While we already met Wells briefly in the flashback to his death, that was a small sample size. I look forward to seeing him differentiate another Wells from those he’s already played for entire seasons.

Are you excited to see more Tom Cavanagh on ‘The Flash’?

‘Glee’ alum Mark Salling indicted on child pornography charges

The actor is facing a lot of jail time.

4:55 pm EDT, May 27, 2016

Following an arrest in December, Glee star Mark Salling (who played Puck on the Fox series) is now facing child pornography charges.

A federal grand jury has charged the 33-year-old actor with two counts of child pornography after a search of his home turned up “thousands” of images and videos involving children, TMZ reports. He will be arraigned in early June.

Salling’s charges potentially come with big sentences: 5 to 20 years in prison for receiving child porn, and another 20 years for possessing it.

After Glee went off air last year, Salling has worked on only one project: The action movie Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets which is slated to hit theaters later this year.

The actor has been in trouble with the law before — he was sued for sexual battery in 2013.
