In The New Rachel, we pick up from where we left off, Finn leaving Rachelat New York. Rachel is left by herself in New York, having to attend NYADA classes without Kurt and with no friends from Ohio, not even Finn. But when Rachel makes a friend Brody, they become friends. One day in New York, Rachel skims through her phone and looks at pictures of Finn, whom she misses very much. Brody questions her and asks if that's her boyfriend, to which she nods and says that Finn means everything to her. Brody comments that he had a girlfriend when he first started NYADA but they only lasted 6 weeks. Rachel quickly waves the thought saying she and Finn will never do that because she won't turn her back on him.
During the final performance of the episode, Chasing Pavements, Rachel is once again seen looking at her phone at pictures of Finn and herself.
