“Glee” episode 5X09 entitled “Frenemies” will explore that fine line between friends and enemies, specifically between Rachel and Santana as these promotional photos reveal. Spoiler TV shared the pics on Feb. 12 and we get an up close and personal look at the episode that won’t air until Feb. 25.
Here’s the episode synopsis from ABC:
“Tensions flare in New York after Santana successfully auditions to be Rachel's understudy in "Funny Girl." Elsewhere, Tina and Artie both vie for the title of class valedictorian.”
Rachel and Santana have always had a love/hate relationship. Santana will be auditioning with Rache3l’s signature song and a mainstay of the “Funny Girl” show, “Don’t Rain on My Parade.” How Rachel will view Santana auditioning for the part of understudy for Rachel’s dream-of-a-lifetime role is something we will be watching “Glee-fully.” The episode should be full of tension and drama as these 2 ‘Frenemies’ have to come to an understanding in order to work together.
As for Artie and Tina battling for valedictorian, we’ve seen student-vs-student competitions on the show before so probably nothing new to expect there.
We also know Adam Lambert will be guest starring as Elliott “Starchild.” There are rumors that Kurt will cheat on fiancé Blaine with Starchild but all that is known for sure is that Kurt and Elliott will sing a very suggestive and romantically-charged duet together.
Here’s the music breakdown for the episode, according to Wetpaint:
- “Don’t Rain on My Parade” from Funny Girl, performed by Santana
- The Darkness’ “I Believe in a Thing Called Love,” performed by Kurt and Starchild
- Kenny Loggins’ “Whenever I Call You Friend,” performed by Tina and Artie
- En Vogue’s “My Lovin’ (You’re Never Gonna Get It),” performed by Tina and Artie
- Sara Bareilles’s “Brave,” performed by Rachel and Santana
- Kelly Clarkson’s “Breakaway,” performed by Blaine, Artie, and Tina
The midseason return of “Glee” will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 25 on Fox with episode 9, “Frenemies.”
