Yesterday, Glee creator Ryan Murphy officially revealed the name of Glee Project winner Blake Jenner’s new character. Come Season 4, Episode 5, the folks in Ohio will be introduced to — wait for it — Ryder.

On August 22, Ryan tweeted, “@Blake_Jenner's character name is...Ryder. Working on lots of great scenes for Blake and @CoryMonteith!”

Blake’s fellow Glee Project contender Abraham Lim was the first to notice the news. Just two minutes later, he tweeted, “Hey @Blake_Jenner. So in Ohio, your name is Ryder. That's a pretty cool name :)

Later that day, Blake retweeted Ryan’s announcement, adding, “So excited & grateful

His Glee Project bestie, Michael Weisman, however, seemed particularly interested in the part of Ryan’s tweet that talked about Cory. He tweeted, “there can only be one...”

Do you think he’s thinking the same thing we were thinking? There just might be another family connection in the works.
