It has all been frustrating, tiring and oh so infuriating, but current indications point to April 19th when Charice is back on “Glee” in episode “Night of Neglect.” Then on April 26 ‘Glee’ is said to extend its timeslot to 90 minutes for the ‘Born This Way’ Episode. No reports on Charice being in that episode, but we can expect Charice to appear in several more episodes as Season 2 marches to a close
After a series of tweets from a credible source, it looked for a while like Sunshine Corazon would make her return to the show in Episode 17, titled “A Night of Neglect,” on March 22 – but that schedule has changed with a brief hiatus pushing the schedule back several weeks.
West Coast Editor of TVGuide.com, Denise Martin, tweeted that she had watched Charice perform during filming, and also observed Harry Shum Jr in action.
Her tweet read: “Watched @iharryshum dance and @officialcharice sing — a very, very fine way to spend the day.”
Charicemania contacted Denise to enquire if she knew when Charice would be appearing and if reports of her appearance on this week’s episode, “Sexy,” were accurate. Her message in response was crystal clear, “Not true. She’s back in Ep 17 :)”
After seemingly endless disappointments for Chasters regarding her return to the hit TV musical show, it would be completely understandable to take this latest news with a pinch of salt (which as it has turned out was smart advice).
However, this time photo evidence provided by Charice herself and her “Telephone” duet partner Lea Michele, as well as a some Twitter communication, has put her return to the set (at least) beyond doubt.
In fact, two pictures have been posted showing Charice with two members of the cast – Lea and Darren Criss – both taken on Tuesday, March 8.
Lea posted her photo herself, when tweeting “Look who’s back!! @officialcharice!! So happy!!!” It was a message that Charice replied to with “You’re so sweet. <3″
The second photo was taken by Charice herself and also posted on Twitter, with the message “Filipino power!!!! Blaine Anderson and Sunshine Corazon!!!”
Reports last week had suggested that Sunshine would appear in episode 17, but a sudden flurry of activity on the rumor mill changed expectations to this week’s show, which proved to be another false dawn.
It seems that, with just 7 episodes remaining in series two, Charice will probably make the first of her 4 appearances on April 19th. What song she sings and what plot line Sunshine follows is still hazy, but at least she will be there. Some evidence points to Charice singing “All By Myself”
We know it’s a case of once bitten, twice shy, but with the strength of all this evidence, the question is should we dare to not believe? Charice is returning!
