Glee: Season 4, Episode 1:: The New Rachel
This week on Glee (Season 4, Episode 1) the season premiere kicks off with a still broken-hearted Rachel starting her new life in NYC and the New Directions stranded in Lima without a star singer. Find out more in the Kidzworld Recap of "The New Rachel" which aired September 13, 2012.
The "New" Directions
The New Directions are indeed, "new" after we saw many of the last set of NDers graduate at the end of last season (amid much heartbreak, if anyone recalls), so who will fill the empty choir room now? McKinley welcomes new singing students Kitty, Brody, Jake and Wade. The new glee club members aren't the only new additions though, Sue Sylvester got her wish at the end of last season with her new daughter, which promises to be interesting.
"New" York City
Ex-New Directioner Rachel is off to the big city to follow her dreams of being a star, but when she arrives in NYC she immediately gets off to a rocky start with her NYADA dance instructor Cassandra July (played by Kate Hudson, a new addition to the show's cast), who she thinks is picking on her, However, Cassandra later reveals to Rachel that the reason she's being hard on the young performer is so that she can push her to be her best.
