As much as we adored Glee’s Season 4 premiere, “The New Rachel,” we couldn’t help but notice that plenty of the graduates were nowhere in sight. We know that none of them are gone for good, but when exactly can we expect them to pop back up again?
Here’s a rundown of when you can expect to see each of the graduates:
Santana (Naya Rivera): Episode 2.
Puck (Mark Salling): Episode 2.
Finn (Cory Monteith): Episode 3.
Mercedes (Amber Riley): Episode 5.
Mike (Harry Shum Jr.): Episode 5.
Quinn (Dianna Agron): Episode 7.
Glee creator Ryan Murphy tweeted that Santana will be back for next week’s Season 4, Episode 2: “Britney 2.0,” and Mark Salling revealed that it will be Puck’s first episode back, as well.
On-set photos from filming prove that Finn will definitely be back by Season 4, Episode 4: “The Break-Up,” and we’re unsure whether or not he’ll make a small appearance in Episode 3, too.
Mercedes and Mike both come back in Episode 5 to “lend Artie (Kevin McHale) a hand with a mysterious situation,” and Finn will still be sticking around at that point, too.
That leaves only Quinn left to still make an appearance. Actor Dianna Agron is currently off in France filming a movie, but Ryan says she’ll be back for the Thanksgiving episode — which, based on Glee’s current airing schedule, appears to be Episode 7.
Which of the graduates are you most looking forward to seeing return?
