The show promises a breakup but does not say who it might be. And creator Ryan Murphy is showing us that there is life beyond high school.
The title of tonight’s episode of Glee may say more than any of the previews do. The episode, entitled “The Break-Up,” will bring change to many of the relationships on the show. And while there may be a breakup in the works, Glee creator Ryan Murphy isn’t talking about which couple that breakup might involve.
“Since the show kicked off its fourth season, the big couples have been going through all sorts of changes. Rachel (Lea Michele) has moved to NYC to start NYADA and hasn’t heard from Finn (Cory Monteith) in months,” said OK! Magazine.
A teaser for the episode has Michele/Rachel crying, suggesting a breakup there. But it’s possible it could be another couple who is breaking up instead.
“After hanging around Ohio, at the pushing of Blaine (Darren Criss), Kurt (Chris Colfer) headed to NYC and got a job with Vogue.com,” said OK! “Meanwhile, Brittany (Heather Morris) is repeating senior year, while girlfriend Santana (Naya Rivera) is off at college. And they are all already feeling the strain.”
Life in high school and after high school can be tough, and with the ages of the cast members (or rather, the supposed ages of their characters), the show has been forced to show what happens after high school and that life does go on. Murphy seems to be showing that the changes between the couples are not the end of the world.
“In tonight’s episode, Blaine and Finn surprise their loves in NYC, while Santana finally gets to talk with Brittany,” said OK! “Which couples will make it intact by the end? And did someone cheat?”
The new storyline may ensure that the graduating seniors will be able to stay on the show for a while, because there will always be a story for them, even without being in high school.
