Yahoo has highlighted the expected rivalry between Charice’s Sunshine Corazon and Rachel Berry as the hit TV show’s most significant forgotten story line.
In an article that identifies several plots and sub-plots that seemed to evaporate, Yahoo asks “What Has Happened to the Sunshine?”, disappointment that has followed the delayed return of the hugely popular character.
Charice’s much-hyped arrival on “Glee” as exchange student Sunshine Corazon had been billed as the start of a major rivalry with key character rachel Berry, played by Lea Michele. But after just one appearance, in the premiere of the second season, Sunshine has not bee brought back to the fold.
“After the two nailed Lady Gaga’s ‘Telephone’ together in the ladies’ room and Sunshine belted out ‘Listen’ and ‘Dreamgirls’ in her New Directions audition, the character was whisked away to Carmel High to join Vocal Adrenaline,” the article states.
“Reportedly, she’ll be back for the final episode of the season. If that’s true, it won’t be soon enough.”
Speculation over Charice’s return to “Glee” has been non-stop since her appearance in “Audition” last September. However, reports she was to return for the first episode of the New Year on February 6 proved to be untrue. Since then, Chasters and Gleeks have been asking “when?!” continuously.
The popularity that Sunshine has enjoyed, and the impact that Charice’s voice has made, as ensured it is virtually impossible not to bring the character back. Co-creator Ryan Murphy has already publicly stated that she would be back “at the end of the year.”
However, with 14 episodes of the second season already aired, the closest fans have had of a return of Sunshine is a depressed Sue Sylvester admitting she listens to Charice on the car radio to cheer herself up, which was included in the dialogue of “Comeback” last week.
Other forgotten plots that make Yahoo’s list include Finn and Kurt living together after their respective Mom and Dad got married; the Will-and-Emma love plot suddenly stopped once Emma got married; and the promising fighting between Sue and Grace (played by RnB songstres Eve), despite her getting Sue suspended in season 1.
