Glee’s Season 4, Episode 8: “Thanksgiving” is going to be a doozy. Not only are the New Directions competing at Sectionals, but Quinn (Dianna Agron) is making her long-awaited return to the show. Wetpaint Entertainment spoke exclusively with Vanessa Lengies (Sugar) at the premiere of Certainty on November 27, and she revealed a few of the crazy things in store.
What’s coming up for Sugar? Anything neat in her future?
We have Sectionals coming up with our big number, “Gangnam Style.” We try to do right by PSY and perform for Sectionals. It's a really great episode. We just saw it today, actually. It made me cry, it made me laugh. It was fantastic. Today, I came from a six-hour dance rehearsal, which is the Sadie Hawkins Day dance episode coming up, where the girls ask the guys.
I'm shaking. My knees hurt. I put this on this morning, and danced six hours in it. It's probably way stinkin' — and I shouldn't say that!
All of the grads are coming back for Thanksgiving. Which character has changed the most since they graduated?
I would say Quinn. She has longer hair. She divulges who she's dating now. You'd think she's learned something from her past relationships.
She's coming into her own.
No, the opposite, I think.
What was it like to have everybody back?
It was so great, the energy of the season has been very new, different, and exciting. There are so many fresh faces. But there was a lot of magic missing from the original cast members that when they came back for the Thanksgiving episode, there was an energy in the room. They all bring so much them when they walk in the room, when you throw them in the room. I loved it. Sectionals and the Thanksgiving episode are the same episode.
About that Sadie Hawkins dance you mentioned: Will Sugar ask anyone?
Who would you want her to ask?
I am obsessed with Sugar's character and Artie's character. I don't know if that's what they have in mind. Kevin McHale, love him.
We’ve been hearing a lot about a Sam/Brittany romance. Anything you can tease about that? Is it serious — will it last long?
That's pretty controversial actually, because I have been getting a lot of Tweets with people unhappy about it, happy about it. I personally am a Brittana fan. I don't know how I feel about this new situation. But I feel like she's just lonely and Santana is away at college. You can't hold it against her.
