Glee Spoiler Photo: Rachel, Kurt and Blaine in NYC — Where’s Santana?
The era of good feelings at Kurt, Rachel (Lea Michele), and Santana's (Naya Rivera) crowded NYC apartment on Glee couldn't last forever, right? Indeed, it appears that Santana really is moving out from Kurt and Rachel's place — but might she also be leaving Glee permanently?
It's pretty much official that things will be getting mighty tense between Rachel and Santana in next week's Season 5, Episode 9: "Frenemies," judging by Rachel slapping Santana in the promo. Tensions rise in the episode when Santana lands the role as Rachel's understudy in Funny Girl. Nothing funny about that.
We had also heard a report that Santana would be moving out, but we hadn't wanted to believe it would be true. However, it certainly seems likely now, as Lea posts a photo — taken by Darren Criss (Blaine)— of herself and Chris in front of a moving truck while filming Season 5, Episode 14: "New New York." We'll cut to the chase: Santana is nowhere to be seen.
"City life! With @chriscolfer (photo cred by @DarrenCriss) #GleeinNYC," Lea captions the pic on February 18, in which she is relaxing on the stoop. And who doesn't enjoying relaxing on a good stoop every now and then?
We have a lot of emotions about this photo. First off, the moving truck suggests that Blaine is moving in with Kurt and Rachel, which is totally cute. But since Santana isn't around for the big day, it's safe to assume that her mail is now being delivered elsewhere.
Sure, Santana is now making decent money at the Spotlight Diner, so it would make sense that she could afford her own pad at some point. Still, we're hoping she and Rachel will stay on solid terms. And above all, we want to be sure that Santana isn't leaving Glee for good! We can't imagine that she would, but there have been some rumors to that effect, so maybe Naya's role will be getting reduced? If so, that would not be cool.
Do you think Santana will move out of the apartment? And do you think Santana will have limited time on the show?
