Filming this past week included some location shooting in Los Angeles, the last of the choir room scenes, and GRADUATION! Check out the twitter timeline below.  “New Directions,” episode 13, airs on March 25.

Location shooting in Los Angeles

Going by the song spoilers, this performance is probably “Loser Like Me”

Details on what could be happening here between Brittany and Santana can be found at this link.

Finally! The McKinley seniors, Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz), Artie (Kevin McHale), Sam (Chord Overstreet) and Blaine (Darren Criss) graduate from high school!

Sadly, at this point, we say goodbye to Glee regulars, Marley (Melissa Benoist), Ryder (Blake Jenner), Kitty (Becca Tobin), Jake (Jacob Artist) and Unique (Alex Newell).

UPDATE: Sue Sylvester and Holly Holiday audition for the Amazing Race, according to Ryan Murphy in a recent interview: “[Gwyneth Paltrow and Jane Lynch’s characters are wearing matching tracksuits] because on the show Sue Sylvester and Gwyneth’s character try out for The Amazing Race.”

UPDATE: Harry Shum Jr. posted this intriguing photo. But, before you assume that the old crew will be back together again in New York City…this photo is part of a DREAM SEQUENCE, that imagines everyone in New York working at the Spotlight Diner. Notice that the kids who ACTUALLY WORK THERE, Santana, Kurt and Rachel are not in the photo. Via Instagram

    I haven’t watched a lot of Glee ever since Lea and co. moved to New York. Sad to see the new kids that they introduced in Season 4 get left behind..
