If you were wondering why Chord Overstreet (Sam) didn’t join his co-stars for some post-election festivities over at Glee svengali Ryan Murphy’s pad last night, let’s just say he had a pretty good excuse.

Lea Michele (Rachel) and Kevin McHale (Artie) were among the partygoers at Ryan’s celebratory shindig, and they even tweeted a photo of themselves at the event to prove it.

But it turns out that not everyone who wanted to attend was able to. Chord responded to their tweet with his explanation for why he sadly wasn’t there:

So it’s too bad that we didn’t get a pic of Chord with his buddies at the rager, but we’re now quite curious as to what it was that Chord and HeMo [Heather Morris (Brittany)] were filming together. We know that they’re currently filming the Love Actually-esque Christmas episode, so we wonder if we could be getting some romantic moments between the two.

In fact, if the photo of them apparently getting hitched in the episode is any indication, things just might be heating up between the two pals. And since we now know that either Sam or Brittany will have a one-sided crush on the other, things are about to get mighty interesting.
