Will tells Emma that he will be there for her no matter what, and also urges her to get treatment for her OCD.

Prior to her casting in Glee, Mays was already an established actress in both the television and film industries, but had little theatrical experience. In casting Glee, series creator Ryan Murphy sought actors who could identify with the rush of starring in theatrical roles.
Auditioning actors with no theatrical experience were required to prove they could sing and dance as well as act, and Mays auditioned with the song " Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch-a, Touch Me " from The Rocky Horror Show. Actually, the second I got the sides. I got the sides just for that character before I got the whole script.
And just from the sides alone in the pilotI could tell she was such a well developed character. And there was so much going on with her just from those few sheets of paper that I had kind of describing who she was. I knew immediately that there was a lot that was going to be going on with her.
And I think that's hard to find sometimes with roles for women. There's maybe not so many layers to them, always. And I just felt from the get go that there was so much going on. And I also knew that Ryan Murphy was involved.
I knew that was exciting to me, too. As soon as I heard that, I knew that there would be something good on the page. So I was immediately drawn to it. But Emma is not a cheater. Emma is also so obsessive-compulsive she counts the bristles on her toothbrush. Sure, she's terrified of germs and in love with a married man, so seeing her as the voice of reason for the kids is amazing.
And I think a lot of people are like that sometimes. We wanted to make her stand out from the other teachers. In the pilotwe made her look much more teacher-y. She didn't come and beg for him to take her back or even just for a friendly visit. Granted that it was nice to go a month without seeing Kendra bursting through their conversations and insulting him, but that was all he knew. Will ran into her once at the supermarket. She was angry with him the minute she noticed that he was buying peanut butter.
Rachel made several attempts to have a meeting of the Glee club at his house like they had before Regionals. It wasn't until the middle of July, just two weeks after the fourth of July holiday, before her plans finally fell through and over half of the club showed up at his doorstep.
Finn was carrying pizza boxes while Mike and Matt held sodas and bags of chips. Schuester, I know you told us to take the summer off, but if we're going to beat Vocal Adrenaline at Regionals, we should start brainstorming now! Will stood in the doorway aghast. Schuester but it never hurts to plan ahead. Though most of my teammates lack my years of experience, I know they'll all be returning to the club when they audition next month.
Everyone looked the same as they did on their last day of school. Young, cheerful little faces that worked hard over the past year to place the club on the map and give it a much better reputation. As much as he wanted to kids to enjoy their summer, it was rather nice to have company again. His parents hadn't been over in a couple weeks and when they were over, they couldn't think of much to say without Terri doing all the talking.
Rachel did most of the talking. Like she always did. Quinn and Santana slipped in their usual remarks about Rachel being obnoxious, Kurt and Mercedes about doing something a bit more black and getting solos more than just once this year, and even Brittany piped up about wanting a solo. There was no surprise when she had a list of songs that the club members could practice to test their vocals a bit more.
A song selected for each member to give them a little extra something that would help them express their "not nearly as talented" vocals. Will tried to move the conversations away from Glee itself and focus on the kids and what they had been up to since school let out. It wasn't a won battle. They hadn't done much judging by their low mumbling of "nothing" and "watched t. Finn was the one to bring Emma up. Their "First Glee Club Pre-School Year Meeting" ended in a couple hours and less than half of a box of pizza and some near empty pop bottles remained.
While Rachel and Tina were cleaning up the living room trash, Finn was assisting in the kitchen. Schue, don't take this the wrong way, but are you back with Miss. In fact, I didn't know you knew anything about the situation. Everyone knew about that whole man-whore incident right before Regionals. And I talked to Miss. Pillsbury a couple times when I was having problems and it was pretty clear that things weren't patched between you guys yet.
It was just a setback because I wasn't ready to jump from Quinn to Rachel because I'd been with Quinn so long and Rachel was so different. Rachel thought she was over me because Jesse just swept her off her feet by song I think Miss Pillsbury might be swept by this guy because he's probably clean or something, right? Schue, if you do that, she'll be a bit more difficult to handle.
You gotta let her know that you support her choices no matter what, but you still want to be with her in some way. Maybe this dentist will hurt her, maybe not, but don't you wanna have a relationship with Miss Pillsbury no matter what? The air was hot and the summer had been his first alone, making it his worst so far. Will only prayed that with school to keep him occupied, his days would be less empty and filled with something.
Even if it meant giving extra Spanish quizzes, he was going to fill that empty time up. It was during his prep period when he caught her off guard and took Finn's advice. He opened the door and crept up behind her in a way that reminded him of something a stalker would do. It must have been very stalker like because when Emma turned around, she dropped the manila folder in her hand yelped out in alarm. I didn't mean to startle you. I just wanted to tell you something. Like you've been there for me when I was with Just like we used to.
W-we can go back to that. It was nice to have a steady conversation with her that didn't involve her pleading for him to leave. I saw my family down in Indiana and I even met Carl's parents.Glee - Becky walks in on Emma and Will trying to Conceive 5x10
His dad was a dentist, too, so he respected my need to clean everything before I use it. But, um, other then that, it was just your average summer vacation. A couple of counseling workshops to improve my connection with the students, but nothing more.

Instead of telling her the truth that he was bored and lost most of the time, he told her he spent most of it with his parents and coming up with new choreography for Glee and better ways to teach the Cheerios Spanish. The only full-truth that he told her was about the get-together he had with the Glee club and coming up with new solo ideas and for a way that everyone could express themselves.
Emma smiled, "So when are the auditions? That way the kids are finalized with schedules and settling down.
He replied to her comment by giving a weak smile to her and waited in an awkward silence for what seemed like eons. Shortly after you two were introduced he said he was inspired to sing more and some nights we sit in my condo and sing. He does most of the singing, actually.
I don't have that much confidence to do it. She blushed and didn't thank him. I have a meeting with Tina Cohen-Chang next period. Sometimes, Will found it stressful but thinking back onto his high school years of Glee was enough to kick him back into why he never gave up on them. Schuester, what type of a performance?
You see, at the end of last year I invited a friend of Miss Pillsbury's to come watch you perform. He was in Glee club himself when he was your age and I think we can show him how New Directions works! There was no surprise that while the kids went back to murmuring, this time out of confusion, Rachel stood up and faced the club. If we give it our all and blow our quest away, imagine what we'll do when the time comes for the competition!
We don't want to get too much of an ego just by a small performance. Schue this wouldn't happen to be the guy Miss Pillsbury is dating, is it? She's coming to the performance, too.

You don't need to be as obsessive with it like Rachel," he tacked on a low chuckle. Rachel and I have plans tonight. Again, he was seriously contemplating taking relationship advice from a student.
Will caught Emma as she was heading to her car. You didn't really have to invite Carl, I can tell you don't really But I wanted to," Will said a little fast.
She smiled and began to clean off her doorhandle with a lemon scented wipe. I promise I'll come to Sectionals again Her head turned sharply upwards to look him in the eyes and her mouth was open as if he'd asked her something provocative.
I mean, he said it once. But since then, he hasn't actually mentioned it. The club was ready with a flawless performance and the energy and excitement among the students ran high. Rachel was doing her usual ordering while they waited for the audience to arrive. Ecstatic that they would have a bit of a performance to give before their Invitational. Emma arrived with Carl exactly at three thirty. She was obviously nervous.
Carl, on the other hand, seemed eager and ready to see the children perform. His eyes focused on Emma with a deep longing expression.
Emma raved about the kids the whole way here. Needless to say, they were in awe of New Directions. Will's lonely summer had paid off and the performance that they gave blew the two viewers away. A more risque use of choreography that would match up to Vocal Adrenaline's, but still staying in good taste, use of vocals in songs that allowed the club to express themselves in a more advanced format was hit on the mark and it was clear that New Directions had advanced over the summer.
Your kids are amazing and quite the talented bunch. Grinning from ear to ear as they fed them praise and approval from the three songs they performed. They took turns complimenting, Emma always giving a more meaningful compliment than the last. When they finally ran out of praise, Finn took a step forward. When their eyes made contact, she flushed in a deep scarlet and didn't look away.
As his fingers began to pluck along the chords of the guitar, Emma knew the song he was playing. His question a week before made sense. This final performance wasn't for them, it was for her.
She had a soft spot for the song You're Beautiful, thinking it was one of the most romantic songs a man could sing to a woman if the love was unrequited. And though Emma loved the original singers vocals, as Will sang the song goosebumps grew over her body and her heart began to pump wildly against her chest, begging to come out.
Her brown eyes began to water once she noticed that his had begun to do the same. It was more than just his way of telling her how beautiful he thought she was; it was an apology, an acceptance of reality, and possibly a goodbye. A tear streamed down her face as he said the final line of the song. She knew it was nearly cliche to cry as he sang this song to her, but she couldn't stop her emotion from fighting through.
When he finished the room was silent. Will left the stage quietly and New Directions followed soundlessly behind him. Emma's heart was still pounding wildly the moments after Will left the stage.
Before Carl could ask, she had left the audience section and was behind the curtain where the club prepared themselves before each performance. New Directions was absent. Only Will remained; carefully putting his guitar away. He turned and his face instantly lit up. Hey, did you guys enjoy the show? Will, I wanted to ask you about the last song. The one you sang. Even before I was with you, I thought you were beautiful.
There wasn't any point in hiding it, though. Her face was touchable to his now and he could see deep into her eyes what was running through her head.
