The New York drama heats up as big news rocks McKinley
The drama continues to unfold in New York on Glee, as the competition between Santana and Rachel heats up, while at McKinley, the seniors are preparing to say goodbye and Will and Emma are planning to conceive a child.
This week’s New York storyline begins with Rachel inviting Elliot to her personal rehearsal, where he gives her a key to his apartment. She has officially moved in with him since she left the Brooklyn loft she was sharing with Kurt and Santana and taken over his bed. The two talk about the beautiful friendship they can feel starting up and start singing “Barracuda.”
Elliott then heads to the loft for Rachel to pick up her sheet music, and comes across Santana in the midst of her plan to take Rachel down (sexy clothes, intimidation through posting old pictures, and a weave). While there, he slips with the news that Rachel is moving in with him, which causes Santana to reintroduce Auntie Snicks.
Rachel then arrives for a shift at the diner and finds Elliot and Santana together, as she is not paying him to run lines with her. When a table requests a performance of “Gloria,” Rachel and Santana turn it into a competition over Elliott’s attention, and the three sing the song. Afterwards however, he quits the band, tells Santana he won’t run lines with her, and he won’t be Rachel’s friend (the roommate thing is still fine). And he can’t understand how Kurt deals with the drama.
In response, Kurt kicks Rachel and Santana out of the band and informs them Pamela Landsbury is dead, and he, Dani, and Elliott have started a new band, One Three Hill. At their first gig, Rachel and Santana decide to temporarily bury the hatchet for Kurt’s performance. Before singing “The Happening,” he makes a speech about how this wasn’t the trio he originally planned to be a part of, but sometimes things happen. The new band also appears to be a hit, inspiring worried looks from Rachel and Santana.
Rachel heads back to the apartment to get her scented candle and she and Santana begin talking and realizing neither one of them ever had any girl friends besides one another. It goes into talk about why Santana took the part, but they’re interrupted by Kurt, Dani and Elliott, and things don’t appear to get any better.
The episode closes out with a New York/McKinley Seniors duet of Wilson Phillips’ “Hold On,” which Dani, Kurt and Elliot are rehearsing together, as Santana sings from the diner and Rachel sings from rehearsal.
