Even though Glee’s Ryder (Blake Jenner) recently learned the hard way that his online pal “Katie” isn’t who she claims to be, Ryder still hasn’t given up on their relationship yet. Ryder feels a deep connection with Katie, and he won’t rest until he finds out who she really is.
Sadly, we won’t get any sort of answers about Katie’s identity until Glee’s Season 4 finale. Still, Katie and Ryder keep talking online. And though Ryder’s chats are read aloud, no voice was attached to Katie during this week’s Glee Season 4, Episode 20: "Lights Out."
As a result, we had a little bit of trouble keeping up with the entire conversation — especially since everything flashed by on the screen so quickly.
At the beginning of the episode, in the choir room.
Towards the end of the episode, in the McKinley High School library.
ryder_lynn: Did you like my brilliant plan to reveal my secret in Glee Club?
katie_xoxo: Why was it so brilliant?
ryder_lynn: Because I knew you would be in there and I was hoping that i could
ryder_lynn: spot some kind of tell on your face right before I told everyone.
ryder_lynn: Something to let me know you knew what I was going to say.
katie_xoxo: I don’t know why ur so convinced I am in Glee Club.
ryder_lynn: Because ur phone rang when I called you
ryder_lynn: when we were all trapped in the choir room.
katie_xoxo: How do you know that the phone that was ringing was the one you called?
ryder_lynn: It’s too big a coincidence.
ryder_lynn: Don’t worry, though.
ryder_lynn: I had my eye on everyone
ryder_lynn: and u didn’t give me any signals...
ryder_lynn: this time.
katie_xoxo: Can I ask you a question?
katie_xoxo: Why are you still talking to me?
katie_xoxo: I mean, you already know that I lied to you about who I am.
ryder_lynn: Whoever you are. You’ve opened me up somehow.
ryder_lynn: Look what i did in glee this week.
ryder_lynn: Telling everyone that story.
ryder_lynn: Something I’ve been ashamed of for years.
ryder_lynn: I don’t know who you are
ryder_lynn: and I don’t know what’s going to become of us
ryder_lynn: but I do know that this thing we are doing, whatever it is
ryder_lynn: it’s working for me.
katie_xoxo: I get it. It’s working for me too.
katie_xoxo: Can I ping you back in a few minutes?
ryder_lynn: Sure. I’ll be here.
Kitty comes over to ask Ryder to lunch. Ryder blows her off so he can wait for Katie to get back. Kitty walks away, visibly upset.
katie_xoxo: Hi, babe.
