Santana (Naya Rivera) has a lot going on during Glee Season 5 this year! Not only is she getting a hot new love interest named Dani — played by pop princess Demi Lovato — but Santana will also have a major role in Glee Season 5, Episode 3: “The Quarterback,” better known as the Cory Monteith tribute .
We’ve already heard that Santana will have a “great, memorable part” in the episode, though any information beyond that is scarce. But when Naya Rivera posted this photo on Instagram, we instantly wondered if it could be for the Cory tribute.
To be clear, Naya doesn’t say which episode this photo is from. Her caption simply reads “Santana.” Plus, with Glee filming Episodes 1, 2, and 3 all at once, it’s hard to distinguish which scenes will show up when.
However, the place where Santana is sitting does look an awful lot like the McKinley High School stage. Plus, we’ve heard from some very reliable spoiler sites that Santana will be singing “If I Die Young” by The Band Perry during Cory’s tribute.
Yeah, we know. We don’t really want to think about it either. Sorry, crying already...
This music spoiler isn’t confirmed, but it definitely makes a lot of sense with what we’ve heard about the episode, and with the emotion portrayed in Naya’s spoiler photo. What do you think: Is this a shot from that scene, or do you think Naya’s photo might be from something else?
Either way, it sounds like we’re in for quite the emotional first few episodes of Glee this year.
