'Glee': Rachel's 'Torn,' Sam and Brittany Are Divided and Tina Likes Nudity in New Promos (Videos)

The NYADA freshman faces an inner crisis as a nude scene propels her to pick between her old conservative persona and her new big-city attitude.

Rachel Berry will be very torn in Thursday's "Naked" episode of Glee.

During the episode, Rachel will be forced to pick between her old conservative persona and her newfound big-city attitude when she is up for a part that requires her to do a topless scene.

"She's torn between the old Rachel and the new Rachel," Lea Michele recently told The Hollywood Reporter. "The new Rachel is more grown-up, and she's making more adult decisions, but the old Rachel in penny loafers and knee-highs would never do anything like [a topless scene]."

For the episode, Michele says she "got to do a duet with myself where the old Rachel is singing with the new Rachel. We did this awesome song, and I had to do the whole thing as the new Rachel and then again as the old Rachel, and they're syncing it together to have me on-screen together. She's torn."

Meanwhile, Sam and Blaine are apparently successful in dethroning the Warblers, and New Directions finds itself back in its old choir room -- and in dire need of raising money for Regionals -- when Tina comes up with the worst-kept secret on Twitter: a Men of McKinley calendar. (Kitty's Twilight slam, meanwhile, is inspired.)

Elsewhere, Brittany and Sam receive their SAT scores -- earning the highest and lowest scores ever recorded at the school, which causes a bit of friction between the new couple. While Brittany is "one of the smartest people in America" -- she wants to go to college at the University of California at Charles Barkley's house -- Sam doesn't seem to be taking his horrible scores well.
