Now that New Directions is no more, Glee moves the storyline permanently to New York City to follow the graduates as they make their dreams of stardom in the big city come true!
In next week’s “New New York,” Blaine (Darren Criss) has been accepted to NYADA where he’ll join his fiance Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Rachel (Lea Michele). What’s more, Blaine moves in with Kurt, as you can see from the photo still above. Don’t they look cozy singing in their jammies? Sam (Chord Overstreet) who is pursuing his dreams to be a male model moves in as well. And you know the cliche…Three is company! Artie (Kevin McHale) adapts to the city as he studies film at a fictitious Brooklyn college. And Mercedes (Amber Riley) makes the Big Apple her home for awhile to work on her major label debut. Meanwhile, Rachel comes closer to big Broadway opening as the lead in Funny Girl.
Also, look out for the return of guest star, Adam Lambert, as Elliott “Starchild” Gilbert. Will his blossoming friendship with Kurt make Blaine uneasy? There was that selfie kiss from Trio, right? But when Kurt and Elliott dress up in leather and eyeliner to duet, that’s not going to help Blaine get over any jealous feelings he may be harboring…

Check out the extended summary for the episode, “New New York,” from FOX Studios:
Having left Lima following graduation, Blaine, Sam and Artie join Rachel and Kurt in New York. While Kurt and Blaine begin to settle into their newfound domestic bliss, Kurt grows increasingly frustrated by the omnipresence of couch-surfing Sam… but is Sam the sole cause of Kurt’s intensifying feelings of claustrophobia? Meanwhile, Sam has grown more and more discouraged by his lack of success since arriving in NYC. Blaine tries to boost his Lima bestie’s flagging spirits, inspiring Sam to re-attack his modeling career with a renewed sense of vigor. And Artie – who seems to have taken to the hustle and bustle of New York City like a fish to water – has his characteristic confidence shaken to the core when a mugger steals his laptop.
Back in New York following an out-of-town run of Funny Girl, Rachel is surprised by a luxurious ‘thank you’ gift from the show’s producers in the form of a private car and driver, at her disposal 24/7. While she first views the gift as something well deserved and a boon to be flaunted, she soon realizes her good fortune may come at a greater cost to her friendships, and to herself. And Blaine begins to worry about the blossoming friendship between Kurt and his bandmate Elliott, leading Blaine to confront “Starchild” about his intentions towards his fiancée, and forcing a decision about the future of Blaine and Kurt’s relationship.
