  • No Thanks

    I hope this means they don’t drag Will Shuster to NY.

  • Damien Roberts

    Wow, sounds like a bit of a tear jerker…Glee club ends!

  • Robert

    Not really surprised about Tina, but I do feel bad for Jenna and her fans. Maybe she can still pop in for guest spots.

  • Dani

    Well at least Tina is going to an Ivy league university. Better than NYADA :P (joking). I don’t know if I want to watch Glee anymore because I’m seriously not looking forward for Blaine/Kurt story lines. But then again, there is one season left so I guess might as well finish it.

  • klainiac

    Well Brown is in Rhode Island so she’ll be close enough to.

  • No Thanks

    Yeah, close enough to pop in for the occasional visit. Just like Quinn going to Yale means she can pop in for a visit.

  • Sofia Giaccone

    It’s a bit sad, but if I think that I’ll finally have my Klaine in New York…I couldn’t be happier. Let’s hope they actually give them some screentime.

  • Dana Rimons

    I wonder what happens with Sam?

  • milwlovesadam

    This new information sounds interesting.

    Previous leaks about Will and Sue being in the New York plot lines is major disappointing. If this ends up to be true, this does not bode well. I have been a big fan of Glee since episode one. However, I have grown very tired of both the High School and most of the cast there. All the antagonism of Sue’s character is a huge turn off for me.( Nothing against Jane Lynch, she plays it as it is written).

    I’ll keep watching though. I need to see how this all plays out, and I’m beyond excited and looking forward to more Lambert on my TV this month.

  • samie

    now I am wondering if Mercedes is really going to nyc

  • samie

    will this be the last time we see mike, Quinn, puck, and mercedes

  • Axxxel

    Sue may be the voice over.. that would be fun… she talked with a lot of common sense reason in the quarterback episode…

    Also looking forward to Lambert and the stripper pole… and of course Chris Colfer hhhmmm…

  • Axxxel

    Yeah.. would love to see him win and fail in the world of runways and fotomodels…

  • Axxxel

    Don’t worry, they will have the whole season 6 for themselves.. especially after Blaine graduates and they are endgame anyway..

  • Axxxel

    I so hope that Blaine will not be as successful as he wishes in Nyada and will do medical studies instead without losing his interests in the arts. In my country there is this practicing plastic surgeon who is a jazz music artist as well and doing live jazz performances on festivals etc

  • Axxxel

    However, he may end up in New York after all, remember when he auditioned for a musical in New York during Nationals ?

  • Jaz

    Blaine in New York story line means the end of the only good part of Glee. He will ruin it. I wish they would just keep the original New York Three and give them a spin off, with Mercedes, Quinn, Brittney, Artie, Tina, Mike, and Puck joining them, and Blaine can go off travelling in Outer Mongolia, or somewhere similar, never to be heard of again.

  • Anon

    Good. They should. Only good thing about the show and has been for ages.

  • Anon

    Sam is headed to NY along with Artie. That’s confirmed.

  • Anon

    He’s not going into medicine. They quashed that in 5×06. He gets into NYADA.

  • JoleneJ

    I can’t wait for Blaine to hopefully completely take over the show. Enjoy. (-:

  • Damien Roberts

    So imagine for the remainder of season 5 and season 6 the cast will be: Rachel, Kurt, Santana, Blaine, Artie, Sam, Shue, and Sue?

    I like the idea of taking these people and just finishing up their stories.

  • Axxxel

    Maybe he will get into Nyada, but will he succeed ? I mean, Blaine and Kurt are engaged… their relationship will get boring… they need some conflict… and it does not necessarily have to be romantic related… Those kids just are coming or came out of highschool… Do they all really already know what they want in life at the age of 18 /19 ?

  • Axxxel

    Good idea, Blaine travelling alone… maybe they can use that excuse next time Darren Criss has an engagement outside Glee…

  • Reality.Bites

    You can’t go into medical school after high school. in the United States. Even if he doesn’t succeed at NYADA, he couldn’t drop out and transfer to another school till mid-season next year. What would be the point.

    And considering how much time the characters spend in school (almost none), does it really matter if they pretend he’s in a different school?

  • Gary Nelson-Burger

    This is his last episode as a main character — IF he returns, it’s as a guest. He and Emma are going.

  • Gunny

    At some point, reality needs to confront Blaine and I think they’ve been hinting at how charmed his life has been. I wish he would not have made it into NYADA and had to struggle with what he wants to do. So far the character has been pretty one-dimensional other than an occasional breakup.

  • Gunny

    I liked him in the beginning, but I started to feel like he was being pushed on us too much and then I didn’t like him. Artie is a better singer and Jake a better dancer and singer. It could be that I’ve never been a fan of boybands and that is what Blaine is to me.

  • Gunny

    I think Amber is getting a mini-contract to come back on occasion.
