[Spoiler alert: This story reveals three major plot points from Thursday's episode of Glee. Trust us when we say avert your eyes if you have not yet watched it.]
Thursday's episode of Glee was technically titled "Diva" but the music of Madonna, Elton and Beyonce was absolutely the last thing on viewers' minds after three major moves made by Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz), Finn (Cory Monteith) and Santana (Naya Rivera).
Tina: As if Tina's season-long b----y streak wasn't bad enough on Glee, somehow Blaine's overly gelled hair and shiny bowties have slowly transformed her into full-on gay-boy stalker. We know Tina was pretty quiet in the choir room those first three seasons, but was she completely absent the entire time Blaine and Kurt were madly, completely in love? It seems like it, judging from Tina's very straightforward song choice — "Hung Up" — as well as that creepy rubdown she performed on Blaine while he was sound asleep. Someone take this girl's vapor rub privileges away, stat! It didn't help that by the end of the episode, Blaine came crawling to Tina with chocolate rose in hand, complimenting her performance and asking her as his date to Will and Emma's wedding. Stop sending her mixed signals, Blaine! She's never going to learn!
Finn: Speaking of Will and Emma's wedding — what the heck was Finn thinking?! Sure, he walks like Will. He talks like Will. And he dresses exactly like his glee club predecessor. But that doesn't ever make it a good idea to kiss Mr. Schue's fiancée, never mind the fact that Emma was in her hour of OCD need and probably scared to death of whatever germs Finn laid on her startled lips. Here we thought Finn was finally going to make some progress and move on (temporarily, of course) from Rachel until she gets the Brody phase out of her system. Tina's infatuation with Blaine feels oddly similar to Mercedes' misguided feelings for Kurt way back in Season 1, and likewise, Finn kissing Emma is pretty much the distant cousin of Puck macking on substitute teacher/Troubletones director/Rachel's bio mama Shelby. With such a large cast and two main locations, shouldn't story lines be a little harder to repeat at this point?
Santana: Thank goodness for our favorite Lima Heights-adjacent native. While Tina's and Finn's surprise actions made jaws drop, Santana's impromptu move to New York City at the end of the episode elicited a much more jubilant reaction. It's still a little unclear why Santana had to waste six months cooling her heels in Louisville, but either way, it's nice to see her not give up on her Big Apple dreams and move in with Kurt and Rachel without even asking their permission, natch. Now that Kurt is at NYADA participating in diva-offs with Rachel and has no time for Vogue.com, it's Santana's turn to show a new side of New York away from Cassandra July and the mean hallway gossips.
