When Glee director, Adam Shankman shared this photo of himself goofing around with some of the ol’ McKinley gang on set, we couldn’t help but notice Cory Monteith (Finn) and Kevin McHale (Artie) in letterman jackets…and Lea Michele (Rachel) donning some interesting attire there.

This of course fits with Lea tweeting about shooting with Cory, Kevin, and Mark Salling (Puck):

But that’s not the only time Rachel’s librarian-ish wardrobe popped up. Lea posted a similar photo of herself as Rachel on Twitter. So, what’s this all about?


We could speculate all day, but luckily we don’t have to! In a recent Q&A on Twitter, Glee creator, Ryan Murphy confirmed that Rachel was dressed as Donna Reed in It’s a Wonderful Life – which he also confirmed to another fan that it would be an upcoming theme in an episode this season.

Maybe in the Christmas episode, since Christmas is a piece of the plot in the movie? Know what else is part of the plot in It’s a Wonderful Life? Donna Reed’s character turning out to be a librarian in a dream sequence, Jimmy Stewart’s character envisioning what his wife would have been like if they had never met.

Sure sounds a lot like Finn and Rachel, don’t you think? Could this be part of the plot for Glee‘s Christmas episode too?
