Lea Michele Has Decided the Fate of Rachel Berry's Love Life

TV Addict 13

rachel finn duet we've got tonightThe countdown to the September 26 Glee season 5 premiere has begun, and while there has been a lotta leakin' of spoilers -- including details on themed episodes, definite song covers, and of course the anticipated tribute episode to Finn/Cory -- we haven't heard much as far as how writers and Lea Michele herself plan to handle Rachel Berry's love life. Whether or not Rachel will remain single after Finn passes away is obviously a sensitive subject ... undoubtedly for Lea herself and Finchel fans.

Now, inside scoop on the possibility of a new boyfriend for Rachel has been revealed, and the game plan actually sounds like a major relief.

Lea reportedly decided that Rachel will not be getting a new love interest in the near future, a source tells HollywoodLife.com. “It is true that Lea doesn’t want to move fast into another relationship so quickly from the loss of Finn. The show is going to take things naturally and make things as real as possible and have her deal with the loss and issues that come from it,” the source explained.

As perfect and respectful as that sounds, it also sounds like it could be so hard for Lea ... Better than be forced to do romantic scenes with a "replacement Finn" (one ludicrous, Bewitched-esque idea that was floated early on) or with anyone for that matter right away, but still -- having "her deal with the loss" on-screen and off just sounds painful. 

That said, it sounds like we should never say never in regards to another love for Rachel coming along. The source continued, "Will there be love in the future? Most likely, but they are going to tread lightly and be respectful with the process as much as possible. Rachel, for the remainder of the show, is going to be a version of Lea that she wants to show to her fans. Cory and Finn will not be forgotten and that will be shown throughout the rest of the series."

Fair enough. Ultimately, I'm sure whatever Lea decides feels right will be something we can all get behind.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you think Rachel should have a new love interest by the series' end?

No i don't think she should. I think that is disrespectful to Finn, and to Cory, and not to mention the Glee fans. I think Lea made the right choice.

Pete Lloyd

Why do you source Hollywood Life?  Do you realize they have exploited Lea and Cory's death  more than any other web site?  I mean well over a 100 stories about Lea in less then 2 months, and frankly 95% of it is probably false.

I hope they find someone who can relate to Rachel so that she has someone else to lean on. But it's got to be someone that Kurt can lean on too.

I think that this will make her character stronger. She isn't reliving it. She is handling it beautifully. I am sure that if it does become hard that they will be there for her.

Im totally agree, also now, we can see a rachel that carries on by herself, she always had been behind a man

Judi Banville Baker

I think she's doing the right thing. Right now she needs to grieve for Corey the best way she knows how and if this will help her then I say she should go for it. Good Luck to you,Lea. Sending prayers of peace and comfort to you. <3

Corey Semple

In all honesty, I wasn't ever really a Finchel person, but I'm sending all my prayers to Lea.

Lois Justice

I agree with Misty Be I hope they find someone who can relate to Rachel so that she has someone else to lean on. But it's got to be someone that Kurt can lean on too.

Lilly Brown

My love and thoughts go out to Lea in this her difficult time in grieving the love her life her soul mate she has my deepest respect I love what she stands for she is a very beautiful person it's so understandable to see why Cory loved and adored lea so much. To me as much as we all need love and affection in our live's I'm so pleased to know that Lea/Rachel after the loss of her Cory/Finn will not be moving on in Glee with a new love interest so quickly. There will never ever be another Finn/Cory as he is a very hard act to follow indeed you both touched my heart in oh so many ways I thank you for that. Much love to you always Lea from Jackie Cash a fan from Australia. xxxx <3
