In The New Rachel, in Season Four, Rachel is now a student at NYADA and is struggling to fit in with the new adjustments. Her dance teacher, Cassandra July, isn't making her stay in New York City very welcoming either. In The Break-Up, Finn returns but with the on-going drama, Rachel breaks off their relationship "for now" and their relationship was put on hold. In Glease, it seems their relationship has fully dropped after Finn says they shouldn't have contact and he doesn't want to know about Rachel's arrival to Lima, Ohio if she does return again someday. Although at Will's almost wedding they talk multiple times, sing a duet, and sleep together. Rachel took a pregnancy test at the end of I Do, leaving some to speculate that she is pregnant.

Rachel is portrayed by actress and singer Lea Michele.

BiographyEdit

Rachel was Born on December 18, 1994, in Lima, Ohio, USA. Rachel was "a shining star" from the start. Her very birth was out of love, as Hiram and LeRoy Berry, an interracial same-sex couple, wanted nothing more than to make their family complete by having their own child. Her fathers proceeded to screen potential surrogates based on IQ and beauty, and eventually decided on Shelby Corcoran. Shelby agreed to the idea, as the money she received allowed for her to pay for her trip to New York in a failed attempt to be a star on Broadway. Due to them mixing Hiram and Leroy's sperm together with a turkey baster prior to conception, Rachel indicated in Pilot that she does not know who her biological father is.

Her fathers spoiled her in the arts and she claims to have won her first dance competition at the age of three months old. As a result, she has a high sense of self-worth and a love of being the center of attention. She uploads a new MySpace video everyday to keep her talent alive and growing. She is an active member of the Glee Club, Speech Club, Mock United Nations Club, Renaissance Club, Muslim Students Club, and Black Student Union. Rachel was raised in the Jewish faith, though her parents have always pushed her to be as open-minded to other beliefs and people as possible - although in Grilled Cheesus, her actions seemingly contradict that idea. As a result, she wants her own children to have freedom to believe what they want, so long as they are raised Jewish.

Season OneEdit

File:300px-Pilot Glee.png

PilotEdit

Rachel is introduced in Pilot, in which she got the school's previous Glee teacher, Sandy Ryerson, fired for inappropriately touching Hank Saunders, a male student. Right off the bat, Rachel's show-offish personality shines through as she details how she had won her first dance contest while still a baby.

When Will Schuester holds auditions, Rachel performs the piece On My Own from Les Miserables and as soon as she finishes singing, she promptly asks when rehearsals begin. Once rehearsals start, she immediately begins to grow weary on the minds and tempers of the others, becoming easily angered for not getting her way and for not having better music selections, particularly in the first group number Sit Down, You're Rockin' The Boat. However, she seems to lighten up when Finn Hudson joins. With his skilled singing abilities and good looks, Rachel finds herself immensely attracted to him. The big problem about her feelings towards him is that he is dating her nemesis, Quinn Fabray. When Finn tries to leave the group, she works hard to convince him to stay because she knows that he really does like glee club but is afraid of being bullied by the rest of the school. She calls him a cliché. At the end of the episode she is then seen with the other Glee club members with the new acception of Finn and joins them in singing Don't Stop Believin'.

File:Rachelfinn.jpg

ShowmanceEdit

Rachel begins to take a more active approach at trying to win over Finn . Rachel continues to try and do what she can to get Finn's attention, including inducing vomiting so as to become thinner, and joining the Celibacy Club. Neither works out for her. Later, when the Glee kids, ignoring Mr. Schuester's orders reject his song selection of Le Freak and instead perform the more sexually driven song, Push It, Rachel gets the group in trouble not only with the Principal and Will, but it also results in Quinn joining the group along with Santana Lopez and Brittany Pierce. While helping Finn practice his singing, Rachel puts together a very over-the-top, but nonetheless romantic picnic for them to enjoy. This leads to them sharing their first kiss, which unfortunately gets Finn overexcited, and he prematurely ejaculates. Embarrassed and feeling guilty, Finn rushes off, leaving Rachel confused and hurt.

AcafellasEdit

Rachel's overbearing nature continues to cause a rift between her and Mr. Schuester in Acafellas, when she and the rest of the group criticize his choreography. This leads to him losing confidence and joining his own musical group, the Acafellas. Meanwhile Quinn convinces Rachel to hire award-winning choreographer Dakota Stanley. Unfortunately his costs are $8,000 per song. The glee kids get the money, but are soon horrified by how horrible Stanley is, who insults and rejects everyone in the group (sans the Cheerios) and attempts to kick them out of Glee for not looking like what he considers to be beautiful. This provokes the other kids to want to leave, but Rachel stops them and instead fires Stanley, and as a parting shot adds that she's taller than he is.

PreggersEdit

Rachel's diva nature flares up when Will gives Tina Cohen-Chang the solo in Tonight from West Side Story due to her never-ending jealousy of anyone who gets a part. Will tells Rachel the reason he gave the solo to Tina is that he wants to strengthen the confidence of the rest of Glee in anticipation of Regionals. She's upset that he is hurting her to make others feel good. Sue Sylvester finds out about Rachel's anger, and manipulating Principal Figgins, gets Sandy Ryerson rehired as the head of the arts department, which allows him to run the school musical, Cabaret. Sue has Sandy give Rachel the lead. With Will still refusing to give her the lead, Rachel quits Glee to join the musical.

The Rhodes Not TakenEdit

Unfortunately, the musical proves to be less than enjoyable for Rachel as seen in The Rhodes Not Taken. Sandy spends all his time insulting Rachel's talent, claiming that he could do better. Meanwhile, Will has gotten a ring-in to replace Rachel, April Rhodes, who was an old high school classmate and crush of Will's youth. Although talented, April is very irresponsible, teaching the Glee kids to drink and act up. April, a typical cougar, voices a sexual interest in the much younger Finn to Rachel, which infuriates her. Finn meanwhile attempts to get Rachel back in Glee, partly because of her talent and also because he misses her. This leads to their second kiss, which hurts Rachel when she realizes that Finn was manipulating her because he needs her help to win a scholarship in music, so that he has a future for himself and Quinn, who is pregnant with (supposedly) their baby. In the end, however, Rachel is unable to stand Sandy's directing and truly misses the group, so she returns to Glee Club.

Vitamin DEdit

Rachel and Finn are at odds, when Rachel discovers that during the mash-up competition between the boys and girls, the boys took performance enhancing pseudoephedrine (given to them by Terri Schuester) to energize them. In a move that disturbs Rachel herself, the girls take the same drug, giving a wildly energetic performance of Halo/Walking on Sunshine. Afterwards, both Finn and Rachel agree they were wrong to take the drugs, and come clean to Will. This however causes a massive backlash, getting Terri fired as the school nurse, and gaining Glee a co-director: Sue Sylvester, who has no talent in showbiz and openly wants to destroy Glee Club.

ThrowdownEdit

Sue's reign as co-director causes immediate trouble in Throwdown, as Sue splits the kids up, taking all the minority students because she claims Will thinks of them as lesser students. However, while the minority students enjoy singing songs that speak to their backgrounds, they are not happy at being split up from the others. Meanwhile, Rachel, upon discovering Quinn's pregnancy, does what she can to keep the truth of the pregnancy hidden from school reporter Jacob Ben Israel, who has a massive crush on Rachel. She offers her underwear in exchange for his silence. Although Finn is touched, Quinn demands that Rachel stay away from Finn. Undeterred, Rachel warns Quinn that Sue will not side with her when the news of her pregnancy finally does come out, and that Rachel and the rest of the Glee Club will be there for her. Rachel is proven right when Sue reveals that she is aware of the pregnancy and throws her out of the Cheerios. Just as Rachel promised, the Glee Club sings Keep Holding On, promising to be there for Quinn no matter what.

Mash-UpEdit

BalladEdit

Upon singing a duet of Endless Love with Will in front of the glee club, Rachel's romantic interests shift from Finn to Will. Rachel begins to behave obsessively and inappropriately around Will, leading to Terri taking advantage of the situation by manipulating Rachel into cooking dinner for her and Will and performing general cleaning duties in Will's house. Will makes many attempts to get her to stop, but it is not until she is approached by Suzy Pepper, another girl who once had a crush on Will, that Rachel realizes how inappropriately she was behaving.

HairographyEdit

Kurt still continues his rivalry with Rachel when he manipulates Rachel with false advice on how to win over Finn. Openly insulting Rachel, he convinces her to take on a sultrier look (comparing her to the character Sandy in Grease). While the look does get Finn's attention, Finn admits that he preferred Rachel as she normally is. Rachel then confronts Kurt, who admits that they are both in love with Finn, and that as long as Quinn is in the picture, neither of them will ever have him. Rachel informs Kurt that her chances of being with Finn are better, because "I'm a girl" and Finn isn't gay. In the end, although not quite friends, both have bonded over their shared heartbreak

MattressEdit

When the Glee Club gets it page taken away from the yearbook in Mattress, Rachel is the only one upset, wanting to have her glory and believing that other Glee kids feel the same way, when in reality, it is quite the opposite. Will gets them one quarter of a page, in which only the two captains of the club can be shown. The group unanimously elects Rachel alone. Will asks Rachel to convince someone else to be co-captain. When everyone else says no, she convinces Finn to take the picture with her. However, after being bullied by the football team, Finn doesn't show up, breaking Rachel's heart. However, Rachel manages to get the yearbook photographer to hire the Glee Club for a mattress commercial in which they sing Jump. Unfortunately, the commercial takes away the kids' amateur status, making them unable to compete in Sectionals. It’s only when Will steps down as director that they are allowed to perform again.

SectionalsEdit

Emma Pillsbury is selected by Will to take over as director and take the kids to the competition. Unfortunately with Will gone, they don't have their set list. Rachel offers one of her ballads, but Mercedes Jones, who is furious at Rachel always getting the spotlight, demands her own chance, which Emma supports. Mercedes sings a powerful ballad, which results in a standing ovation from the entire Glee, Rachel included. Rachel tells Mercedes that her performance was wonderful and concedes to let her sing the ballad, with the two sharing a hug. Meanwhile, Rachel begins to grow suspicious about Quinn's pregnancy, slowly realizing that Puck might be the father, not Finn. When she shares this information with the Glee Club, they disregard it awkwardly, because they all know that it’s true, but do not want to get involved in Finn, Quinn, and Puck's personal drama. Rachel, however, brings this theory up to Finn, who discovers that it's true. Furious, he breaks up with Quinn, breaks off his friendship with Puck and quits Glee. Rachel, who is guilty about her own selfish actions, talks to Quinn, expecting to get beaten up. Quinn admits that she's not angry at Rachel because Rachel did what she couldn't: tell the truth. At the competition, the Glee Club is horrified to discover that their rival schools stole their set-list and are performing all of their songs. The group agrees to do a new set-list, but only have an hour in to which prepare. Rachel, taking control, asks Mercedes to do a different ballad, but Mercedes admits that she has nothing else prepared and asks that Rachel step forward. With Finn's timely return, the group goes out to perform. Rachel sings Don't Rain on My Parade, and with the rest of the group she performs You Can't Always Get What You Want and Somebody to Love (this last song is not seen performed on screen, but implied in the green room).

Later, after an examination by Rachel's doctor reveals that she suffers from tonsillitis and may need to have her tonsils removed. She is afraid to have the surgery fearing it will affect her voice and believing that her singing prowess is her only asset. Finn, who accompanies Rachel to her doctors appointment, tries to convince her that he loves everything about her and that there's more to her than her voice. He tells her that if she lost her ability to sing then Jesse would no longer find her attractive. Rachel tells Finn that she still cares about Jesse and that he needs to move on. To put her fear into perspective, Finn introduces her to his friend Sean, who was paralyzed from the upper chest down during a football game. At first, Rachel is nervous and overwhelmed by the meeting - but Finn forces her to stay as Sean tells her about his grueling experiences with his disability and how he realized that a person is not just one single thing.

She walks through streets, crowds and across roads, and finally, Rachel finishes off the song as she walks with her pink suitcase, into a full crowd as the episode comes to an end. This is the last time Rachel is seen in Season Three.

Season FourEdit

The New RachelEdit

The episode opens with Rachel in a NYADA class. It shows other students and Cassandra July welcomes them and asks them to start dancing, since it is the class "Dance 101". Rachel looks slightly confused as she follows everyone, doing spins and twirls. Cassandra seems very critical and rude and she calls a girl "Muffintop" in front of everyone, including Rachel, who looks a bit worried. As Rachel walks past, she rolls her eyes and Cassandra stops everyone. "Did my conversation with Muffintop offend you?" she asks Rachel, with which Rachel quickly denies. When Rachel says she's from Ohio, Cassandra offends Ohio, making Rachel uncomfortable. "Did you come all the way to New York to teach my class?" Cassandra asks Rachel. "No, I came to learn." Rachel manages to whimper. Cassandra then tells everyone lessons and how pathetic their dancing is. She puts the music on and makes them dance, and continues to pick on Rachel, saying "Higher" until Rachel falls. Cassandra bends down as Rachel tells her she doesn't need her help, but Cassandra shakes her head saying, "No, I'm not here to help you. I'm here to give you a New York City welcome. You suck." Rachel, offended, sighs as the camera cuts to the Glee title card.

Back at McKinley, Tina, Sam, Artie, Brittany, and Blaine are being interviewed by Jacob Ben Israel. When Jacob turns to Blaine, Artie, Brittany and Tina to ask who's the "new Rachel", the four of them says "I am". It then cuts to Rachel, watching Jacob's blog. Rachel says it's happy to know she's missed because growing up in New York can be lonely and she misses her friends, dads and Finn. She says she hasn't heard from him in two months and he must be giving her the space she needs to achieve her dreams. Rachel explains that her room-mate is nice, but she hasn't talked to her personally because she always has company and it shows that her room-mate and a boy is having sex, as Rachel covers her ears saying "she sounds nice," and she wishes Kurt got into NYADA with her. It then shows Rachel going to the bathroom, saying it does take some getting use to and she's tired of everyone's opinion about her extensive night time ritual, so she takes a 3am shower in the morning when no one is around. Rachel then raises her head as she hears someone showering and singing, Sister Christian. She seems very surprised and gripped by the performance. She takes a peek and sees a person showering and continually singing. Brody Weston then steps out naked as Rachel stares at him and they both hold a long stare. She smiles for a second and then hurriedly returns to the sink.

Brody comes over and asks if Rachel is a freshman, to which she replies yes and she is majoring in musical theatre. Brody tells Rachel that he is too. Brody introduces himself to Rachel as a junior at NYADA. "It seems you survived your first class with Cassie, so you must be good." Brody says as Rachel fakes a smile and asks if she is always that awful to which Brody says she's tough. As Brody talks about it, Rachel then is surprised to know he's on Broadway. She ties her hair with a large grin, acknowledging that fact. Brody then also says that people give him a hard time on his "moisturizing ritual". It seems Rachel and Brody have a lot in common. He re-assures her and says that she's here cause she's the best of the best and tells her to start believing in it. She smiles back as Brody leaves the room and says "In case you're wondering, in which you were, I'm straight." He winks as he departs and leaves Rachel in a content state.

The scene cuts to Rachel walking in New York as she's on a phone conversation with Kurt and they're talking about Brody. Kurt teases her and asks if she likes him but she replies saying she will always love Finn.

Rachel and Kurt speak about how they miss each other like crazy and Kurt asks "Is that why you're calling me every 3 hours?" to which Rachel says she's checking if he's OK. The scene shows Kurt walking through the halls of McKinley when Rachel asks where he is at the moment. Kurt then walks to Sue's office, where she carries her baby, Robin.

In the choir room, Will welcomes to glee club and the MVP of last year's Nationals Championships, Wade Adams. Blaine gives a blatant look and says that they don't need another contender for the new Rachel of the club, to which Will questions. Tina says that in every glee club, there is a star performer, and since Rachel was the star performer and they've lost her, they need a replacement, and the competition for that is definitely fierce. Will says they don't win as stars but they win as a team and they should support new members. He says he doesn't want to hear about this "new Rachel" stuff. Wade "Unique" Adams, sits next to Blaine and says that Unique will be the new Rachel. At 5, in the auditorium, Blaine, Brittany, Wade, Tina and Artie gather on the stage as they are ready to perform to see who the new Rachel/the new lead soloist is. Tina hopes it's her because that was what Rachel wanted. Tina also says that they'll be singing what Rachel would sing, "the song of the summer", Call Me Maybe.

Rachel is later seen practicing in the dance class with Cassandra coming in, calling her Little Miss David Schwimmer again and asking if she's continuing her failure. Rachel replies that she's practicing again, as she had a rough week. Cassandra picks on her and says that she better decide what she's feeling, because a lot of people at NYADA will do anything to make it into the business. Rachel then asks furiously, "Why are you picking on me?" and Cassandra annoyingly says "I'm not! I'm motivating you!" Rachel then points out that she can smell alcohol on her breath to which Cassandra denies, saying it's Listerine. Everyone watches her as she says "I may not be much of a wide-eyed ingénue anymore, but I can still dance circles around anyone of you. MUSIC!" Cassandra and a few other NYADA students begin to perform Americano/Dance Again. Rachel watches the performance, shocked and utterly destroyed by Cassandra's seriousness and she also seems very offended. "You're not just on my list, Schwimmer, you ARE my list. Class dismissed!" Cassandra says as she concludes her performance. Rachel turns around, stunned.

After Never Say Never, it returns back to NYADA where Carmen Tibideaux introduces everyone to the Round Room of NYADA. Rachel and Brody are seated next to each other, Rachel particularly excited. Miss Tibideaux explains that the room is round and there's no where to hide, and she talks about how everyone will perform publicly twice, in the room in this episode and also at the end of the semester, the Winter Showcase, which Brody whispers quietly to Rachel that it's also known as the "freshmen reaping", a reference to The Hunger Games. Carmen then welcomes a student to sing. Rachel watches intently but Carmen quickly stops the student. Carmen says she thinks the student needs to practice a little bit more and re-apply in December leaving the student upset. Rachel worriedly asks Brody, "Did she just get cut?" and Brody says that it happens, when Carmen suddenly calls Rachel's name. Rachel quietly walks to the performing area with determination as Carmen says, "Impress me," and Brody nods his head with agreement. Rachel looks a bit shaken but says her name and says she will be performing New York State of Mind. The scene then cuts to Marley, who is auditioning for New Directions at McKinley and is singing the same song. The scenes cut from NYADA and McKinley, showing Marley and Rachel singing it. Rachel starts off, and it seems to impress a few people in the room and it continues to cut to Marley and back to Rachel, Will and Artie impressed by Marley's performance, while the others are stunned and jealous. Rachel and Marley then finish off with a stunning, high note.

Later it is revealed that Blaine is the new Rachel.

When Marley gets into Glee Club and she and her mum talks about it, her mum mentions Rachel and how Rachel got into Broadway but Marley doesn't want to go Broadway.

Back at New York, Rachel is on her iPhone as she zooms in on a picture of Finn playing the drums. Brody appears behind her and asks if that's her boyfriend and she introduces him to Finn who is currently in the army. Brody then says that he had a girlfriend when he started NYADA and that they lasted for six weeks and Rachel says that it won't happen to her and Finn and she won't turn her back on Finn but Brody says, "Nobody says you should." Brody then moves on and tells Rachel she killed her solo in Tibideaux's class and compliments her. But Rachel says while she was singing that song, she never felt amazingly wrong as she felt here. Especially the fact that she's all alone and she feels like she'll throw up all the time. Brody tells her not to worry because the reason she came to New York was cause she's changed into this new person and to be that new and improved Rachel. Brody then takes her phone and Rachel poses as they take a picture and Brody says they both look good. "Don't fight the new you, because from what I've seen, she is gonna kick some serious tail," Brody says to her. He tells her to start adding new memories to the old ones. He then offers to walk her to class.

The scene cuts to Cassandra continually yelling at her Dance 101 class, telling them they should be dancing at Black Swan level's of psychosis. She asks Rachel to give her best spin, which Rachel does, and she asks her to do it again but more centered, and Cassandra said it's better, "slightly". Cassandra asks if Rachel will roll her eyes again to which Rachel says she won't and she will keep trying until she's best for Cassandra. Cassandra calls her mouthy and says she has guts. Cassandra goes on to say that she likes students with such spirits because it will be fun for her to make her every living day, hell on earth. She then walks away saying it's so boring.

Back at McKinley when New Directions is having rehearsals with Marley singing Chasing Pavements, Rachel is seen in New York, sadly going through the pictures of Finn. During the performance, it continually shows Rachel looking and clutching her phone while watching people holding hands and in love, reminding her of Finn. Later, she is seen on a phone call with Kurt, in tears as she says "I lied, I'm not OK. I miss you and I miss everyone! My dance teacher is a monster and I can't go to my dorm room cause my room-mate is sleeping with the entire school." Kurt then says, "Maybe you should move out and find a new room-mate." Rachel scoffs, "Yeah.." Kurt then tells Rachel to turn around, and as she peeks through the fountain, she is able to see Kurt. They run to each other and hug and laugh, just as the episode concludes with Marley finishing off her solo with New Directions.

Britney 2.0Edit

At the beginning of Britney 2.0, Brittany, thinking she has a voiceover, talks about her popularity. While she speaks, she does say she's the "vice Rachel" of the Glee Club.

Rachel is first seen in this episode, in a NYADA class with Miss July. Cassandra is teaching them the tango. Cassandra says the first thing they have to understand is, the tango is all about sex. She points the stick at Rachel quickly and tells everyone to partner up. Rachel optimistically looks at a boy next to her, but he quickly moves away before Rachel has a chance to be his partner. Rachel is all alone with no partner for the tango. She looks at Cassandra confusingly as Cassandra says "Now you Schwimmer, keep practicing those jazz hands for me back in the corner." Rachel quickly says that if she's ever going to play Evita, she's going to have to learn how to tango. Cassandra then says that she can't because the class is short of boys and a girl needs to sit out. She adds that Rachel hasn't got enough sex appeal to pull of a creditable tango because Rachel is awkward and tentative with her body and that Rachel moves like she's ashamed of it. As Cassandra goes back to the class, Rachel looks offended.

Later Rachel and Kurt are seen in their New York apartment, riding their bicycles around. Rachel squeals in excitement saying "THIS PLACE IS ENORMOUS!" Rachel and Kurt talk about it a bit, Rachel saying it's much better living with Kurt than living in a dorm with her roommate. The scene then fades to night, Rachel and Kurt, sitting down and eating pizza. "New York Dominoes is so much better than Lima Dominoes" Rachel says. Rachel then asks Kurt if he has heard from Finn. Kurt explains that Rachel should stop worrying, because Finn loves her and gave her the space. Kurt then goes on to talk about how back at McKinley, they're doing Britney Spears again, to which Rachel says she hasn't seen Finn for a while in the choir room. Kurt then says "Anyways" and goes on to talk about his plan to re-audition for NYADA in the second semester, he also says he'll find a job for the mean time at Vogue.com. Rachel listens intently, as Kurt says he needs to release some of this "new-found resilience". Rachel says she'll need that too because her dance teacher, Cassandra July, is a monster, saying that Rachel isn't sexy enough. "Cassie July is your dance teacher?!" Kurt asks. Rachel nods and rolls her eyes. "The Cassie July? Aka The Crazy July? Aka, The Biggest Broadway Trainwreck in history?!" Kurt goes on. Rachel looks confused, asking "what?" Kurt explains that Cassandra was the it girl 10 years ago on Broadway. It cuts to a scene where a YouTube video is shown of Cassandra, on Broadway, but when a man in the audience's cellphone rings, Cassandra stops the show and says she won't continue till the phone stops ringing. Then Cassandra goes down to the old man, grabs his phone and throws it, hits it with a cane, and Cassandra's Broadway job is over. The scene goes back to Rachel, "No wonder she's just always so angry." Kurt says that she can't give in to Miss July, for if Miss July wants sexy, Rachel MUST give her sexy. The camera zooms in as Rachel gives a large grin.

After Womanizer, Brody does sit-ups on a bench in New York. Rachel sees him and greets him. She laughs as he does his final sit up and gets up to see her, saying he misses seeing her in the showers. Rachel wants a favor from him, and she explains that "Cassie" said she wasn't sexy enough, which Brody quickly interrupts, saying that she is. Rachel denies and continues, saying that she would love it if Brody dances with her, cause there aren't many guys in her class. Brody then explains that Cassandra wouldn't let any Upperclassmen perform in her class. Rachel then looks a bit upset, saying "Got it, sorry." Brody then sees her disappointment and continues on saying, "Which is why...it would be so much fun to do it." Rachel smiles at him.

Rachel comes to class late later, dressed up in stripped down clothes. Cassandra explains that she is late and dressed up like a wild, green underwear model. Brody accompanies her as Cassandra asks why Brody is here. Rachel explains the situation. Rachel says the only reason why she is dressed up like that is because she
File:GLE402sc240023--2753518901500224650.jpg
wanted to show Cassandra how sexy she actually is to play Evita, Roxy and Charity. Cassandra asks Rachel to show her what she prepared. Cassandra sits down, looking unsatisfied, but watches anyways. Rachel and the NYADA students including Brody begin to perform Oops!... I Did It Again, Rachel singing the solo while the others dance. A lot of sexy moves are included, tables used too. Cassandra continually watches unimpressed and a bit jealous.

At the end of the performance, Rachel asks what Cassandra thinks and if she's ready to learn the tango. Cassandra sharply replies, "Yeah, you can memorize the routine, so what?" Brody then speaks up for Rachel, saying Rachel was incredible. Cassandra says that Brody was incredible, Rachel was instead, "okay". She says that the song was garbage and asks who idea it was to perform it. When Cassandra tells Rachel the levels that are appropriate for Rachel's sex appeal, Rachel bursts out. "You're just jealous of me! Of all of us!" Brody tries to stop her, but Rachel continues her rant. "No, because we have our entire careers ahead of us, and yours ended before it even began, we're the future, and you're just some YouTube joke!" Rachel says without stopping. Cassandra is speechless at this point, her devilish smile, wiped from her face. "You're done. Get out of my class. GET OUT OF MY CLASS. OUT!" Rachel, shocked, storms out, Brody following her.

Cassandra is seen practicing some dance moves at NYADA in front of a mirror when she sees Rachel behind her. Cassandra says "I'm working." Rachel apologizes for all the things she had said to Miss July for they were completely wrong and out of line. Rachel says she felt like Cassandra was picking on her for no reason. Cassandra tells Rachel to stop talking. "Look. You lost it and you lashed out. Same as I did ten years ago. Except, all it took for you to snap was a little honest feedback and excuse me, dance class. And you expect to make it on Broadway? Where all there is is scrutiny and judgement? And what if someone taped you a little earlier? And posted it on the internet? You'd never get cast...You have one chance... You screw it up... You're done...You're that crazy actress...And why would anybody want to work with you?" Cassandra says while she moves. Rachel looks disappointed and regretful as Cassandra lecturers her. Rachel says Miss July was good and Cassandra said that she was great and asks Rachel to come closer. "But it doesn't make a difference, cause I wasn't ready for the pressure. Believe me.. It's a WHOLE lot more vicious out there than it is in here, that's why I pick on my students. I want them to be ready..." Cassandra says. While she says this, Rachel assists her as she does a few stretches. Cassandra says Rachel is not ready yet and if she had a choice, Cassandra wouldn't let Rachel back in class because she doesn't believe in second chances and she knows they don't exist. Unfortunately for Cassandra, the school policy said that Rachel gets a warning. Rachel gives an expression of relief. "So you're in an on probation and dance duty. Hand wash all of them." Cassandra tells Rachel. Rachel nods, as she is dismissed, Cassandra calling her "Schwimmer" again and telling Rachel not to forget the hamper on the way out.

Later in Rachel and Kurt's apartment, Rachel stares at her wall with a sodden expression. She painted Finn's name and a green and yellow love heart around it and asks Kurt what he thinks. "Am I being too obvious?" Rachel asks with a smile. Kurt explains once again, that Finn hasn't called her cause he loves her, not because he has forgotten about her. "Your freedom is the gift his given you. Accept it!" Kurt says. Rachel says it's so much freedom all at once that it feels like severe loneliness. Kurt then gives in to a grin saying that the only cure to loneliness is cake and that there's a great Italian bakery down the street. Rachel gives a squeal and says only if Kurt doesn't mind going out at night. The door then knocks as Kurt answers, and Brody stands with some orchards. Kurt then quickly tells him that he was going to go get cake and leaves Rachel and Brody alone. Brody examines the area and says it's huge. He specifically sees the "Finn" with hearts around it. He says it took 45 minutes for him to get here which surprises Rachel, as he took that long just to see her. Brody hands the orchard, saying it is good luck in a new place and the orchards are kind of sexy. Before Rachel sends him out, he tells her something that he didn't feel appropriate saying over text. "That I... I really liked dancing with you. And I think that you're... I think that you're really sexy...And..." Brody says as he leans in to kiss Rachel. Rachel pulls away though, saying she can't. "I think you are amazing and..and..very, VERY, very sexy. It's just.." Rachel replies. Brody then points at the painting Rachel did and murmurs "But you're still in love with your boyfriend...". Brody then explains he will respect Rachel's boundaries but he says she should know that when they're together, whatever they're talking about and whatever they're doing, he's thinking about kissing her. He tells her to enjoy the orchard as he leaves.

During Everytime, Rachel is seen in the NYADA dance class, Cassandra telling a boy to dance with Rachel. Brody watches her from the outside of class. He smiles but his disappointment is clear in his eyes. Back at Rachel's apartment, she looks at her wall where Finn's name is painted. She grabs a paint brush and paints over it while Kurt watches as the episode ends when the camera goes to the orchard that Brody gave Rachel.

MakeoverEdit

Rachel is first seen in the episode as she walks with Kurt down a New York street. Rachel discusses about students in her class and how she tried to approach them nicely but they were incredibly rude. One of them insults Rachel about her outfit and the other one which Rachel nicknames "Black Swan" mocks Rachel. The scene then cuts to Rachel and Kurt in their apartment as they eat Pizza and drink. Rachel says she was excited to come to New York cause she thought it was a chance for her to start over, but instead she had no idea it would be exactly the same. Kurt comments that she's only exactly the same cause she's still dressing exactly the same. "We're not in Ohio anymore, Rachel," Kurt says. "And even then, it was not like we were on a trend. I hate to say this but life is like high school." Rachel then says she doesn't know what Kurt expects her to do because it's not like she can afford an entire wardrobe. Kurt then looks down and says "Who says you'll have to pay for it?" Rachel looks up a bit confused, Kurt asking her to follow him as he has an "idea". Rachel then states that it's almost midnight. Kurt smiles cheekily and says, "I am going to change your life. And maybe a bit of mine too."

Afterwards, a camera is seen watching Kurt and Rachel at Vogue.com's HQ. Rachel is so excited she wants Kurt to snap a picture of her. Rachel prances around as she squeals with Kurt. Kurt uses a card to open a door as they both step through. Lights open around the room, revealing many clothes. Rachel is in awe, Kurt surprised. "I can't even breathe," she says. Kurt then explains that it's a famous vault. All of a sudden, from the back, "FREEZE". The voice is familiar, but not to Rachel as she turns around quickly. Isabelle and two bodyguards are there as Isabelle whispers in shock, "Kurt..!?" Kurt questions that he thought Isabelle was out but she explains they cancelled that. "What are you doing there and who is that?" Isabelle asks Kurt as she points to Rachel. Rachel introduces herself really quickly as Kurt says they were going to do a music video for the Vogue website. Rachel chimes in saying that Kurt adores Isabelle as Isabelle watches them both. Kurt says they'll do a makeover and Rachel will be the model. Isabelle then smiles and stops them saying, "You had me at makeover!" The two guards then walk away as Isabelle shuts the door and the music to The Way You Look Tonight/You're Never Fully Dressed.

After Kurt and Rachel breaks into Vogue, Isabelle catches the two with bodyguards behind her. Kurt quickly explains that his preparing a video with Rachel as a model and his planning on making over Rachel. Isabelle then says "You had me at makeover" and the song begins. Isabelle smiles as the camera goes on and she starts singing. She holds a cane as Rachel and Kurt watch with pure excitement. Isabelle throws the cane towards Kurt as he catches it. Isabelle goes around as she grabs various clothes and dresses for Rachel. Rachel then sits
