When Glee returns to our screens on January 17, the OCD guidance counselor Emma Pillsbury, played by Jayma Mays will be about to receive her third marriage proposal. This time, however, it’s from the guy she has always wanted to marry: Will Schuester (played by Matthew Morrison).
Their happy ever after has been a long time coming and even married and got a quicky divorce from John Stamos along the way. The proposal this time won’t be all plain sailing, either, but ultimately “they’re moving in good direction,” said Jayma.
Will and Emma have been looking like they were meant to be together since Glee season 1. Finally, Will is going to propose, in what Mays says is “one of the most spectacular proposals I’ve ever seen written.” We also know that the New Directions kids are involved with the proposal somehow. Sounds exciting!
In the teasers, Emma has a dream sequence where she sings her proposal to Will. But really, traditionalist Emma wants Will to propose to her. But in the clips, you can tell that Emma is so kind of wrapped up in this notion of wanting to get married that she’s almost been pushed to the point of asking Will herself; she wants to get married.
Mays hints that we will be on the edges of our seats wondering if the proposal is accepted. Both have their doubts and Emma’s OCD factors in heavily. As will Emma’s parents.
Coach Beiste (Dot Marie Jones) for mid of honour, anyone? She is pretty much Emma’s bestie, after all. For some reason, Sue Sylvester (played by Jane Lynch) also features in Emma’s fantasy wedding proposal.
So what is the future for Will and Emma? Jayma is not sure if any wedding (if there is a wedding) will take place this season on Glee. But she says she would not be surprised to see the characters start a family pretty soon.
Helen Mirren also guest stars in the episode as someone’s internal voice in the episode. But apparently it isn’t Emma’s. Her mother’s, perhaps? But that’s just my speculation, not Jayma’s.
Whatever, Glee’s Yes/No episode looks quite exciting, doesn’t it?
