UPDATE 12/18: Well, this totally blows. While we know that guest stars don't always stick around forever — thus the term "guest" star — but we didn't expect to have such decided news about it all. Today, a People story came out, with an unnamed source declaring that Demi is dunzo with the small screen — at least for the next year. “She plans to spend next year completely focused on her music," the source says of the multi-talented 21-year-old. 

While she's been able to manage her music, acting, and X Factor judging duties for the last couple years, the two Fox shows have taken up a lot of time she could've used to relax or apply to music. In fact, Demi plans to take the month of January off completely before heading out on the road for her "Neon Lights" arena tour. So, how will things end with Dani and Santana? Hopefully with an open-ended declaration of love, leaving room for Dems to return when she's ready to kiss hot girls onscreen again.  

ORIGINAL STORY 11/18: Santana (Naya Rivera) has had her share of excellent love interests on Glee, but one of our favorites is new lady love Dani (Demi Lovato). We first met the singing sensation with the quick wit at the Spotlight Deli, in Episode 2, when our girl Sanny took a shine to her. Now, Dantana sings and dance sside by side in a cover band with Kurt and Rachel, and who knows where their adventures will take them! No, seriously. Who knows? We do, sort of.

Brittana lovers the world over have been swearing about Dani up and down the Internet, wishing for Dantana’s demise. And even though they’re probably not going to get the Britt OTP end they’re hoping for, since Heather Morris isn’t returning to the show this season, they will almost certainly get one thing: Dani and Santana will probably be breaking up, sooner than later.

How do we know that? Well, Demi Lovato is a busy lady, and she only signed on for a six-episode arc. With appearances in Episodes 2 and 4 under her coordinated waitress outfit, and her next showing in  Episode 7: “Puppet Master,” confirmed, that only leaves three episodes for Dems to make her mark.

We don’t know what else will happen between between Dani and Santana during that time, or if Demi will come back for another arc. See how well fans have received Dani, we’d usually speculate that Glee would simply increase her episode order. But Demi heads out on her big  Neon Lights concert tour February 9, which means she won’t be around to film any new episodes after that!

Are you upset that Dantana might not be forever? Tell us below!
