Mays suggested that Emma had a turbulent time in the second season and explained that she is "interested" in what will happen next.
"She went through quite a lot," Mays told Parade. "In this past season, she got married, got divorced, and she's still discovering how to deal with these germphobic issues that she has and her OCD."
Mays added that she wasn't expecting Emma to begin treatment for her OCD.
"I was surprised towards the end of last season that they did have her seek out help and admit that she has a problem and I'm interested to see where that's going to go," she said. "She's taking medication now and sometimes that medication works for some patients, and doesn't for others, so it'll be interesting."
However, Mays confessed that she has no idea what will happen to Emma in future episodes.
"We haven't shot anything yet," she said. "We start back beginning of August. But we don't get scripts until last minute, so I don't know how the next season's going to go at all yet. They don't trust me! I wouldn't either, to be honest."
Mays has previously admitted that she is nervous about potentially having sex scenes on Glee and suggested that Emma is still a virgin because the writers are planning something.
Glee will return for its third season on September 20 on Fox.
