Glee’s Brittana was one of TV’s most prominent same-sex pairings. Now that they’re broken up, Brittany is hooking up with Sam — is that really such a bad thing?

Two cheerleaders in bed together, one deflowering and no big messages? Can’t say it ranks with the series’ best or even its second-best, but it’s a step up from last week’s moroseness and for that, I’d thank the Grilled Cheesus if Finn and his cast-iron stomach hadn’t eaten it.

Don’t these people have a freaking Applebees or something?
The bad news is: Puck’s in jail after stealing an ATM Sue also takes a powder this week, so we’re sadly short on snark , but luckily, Sam is waiting in the wings and Schuester wastes no time in bringing him into the fold. And thus begins our night of evil machinations. And since the theme of this episode is duets, and the focus is on the kids since the adults are more or less nowhere to be found, you know what that means: we get a full-on, no-holds-barred look at how absolutely insane the Gleeks really are.
Evil machination of the night 1: Kurt lays eyes on Sam and within thirty seconds, his gaydar immediately starts buzzing like a vuvuzela. Finn, who’s seen that look in Kurt’s eye before, informs Kurt — in a way that’s long on honesty but short on sugar-coating — that for new guy Sam to duet with openly gay Kurt will put a bullseye on Sam’s back, and that Kurt’s bound not to care because he’s kind of a super-aggressive creep when it comes to guys he likes.

Santana Lopez is a fictional character from the Fox musical comedy-drama series Glee. The character was portrayed by the late Naya Rivera , and has appeared in Glee from its pilot episode , first broadcast on May 19, Introduced as a minor antagonist and a sidekick to Quinn Fabray Dianna Agron in the first episode of Glee , Santana’s role grew over the course of the show’s first season. In the second season , Rivera was promoted to a series regular, and Santana was given more high-profile storylines, such as the development of her romantic feelings for her best friend Brittany Pierce Heather Morris , and the subsequent realization that she is a lesbian.
Rivera, who has been vocally supportive of the love story between her and Morris’ character, has received widespread praise for her portrayal of Santana, as well as for her for vocal work in numerous songs performed as part of the show’s central glee club, New Directions. Santana is introduced alongside Quinn and Brittany as one of the three most popular cheerleaders at the fictional William McKinley High School in Lima, Ohio , where the show is set.
As the season progresses, she becomes more sympathetic to other glee club members, saying she is staying in the club not because Sue is forcing her, but because she likes it. She has several romantic relationships, briefly dating Puck Mark Salling , taking Finn Hudson ‘s Cory Monteith virginity , and carrying on a friends with benefits relationship with Brittany. In season two, the show delves into the motivations behind Santana’s antagonism and her sexual aggressiveness towards boys; it is later revealed that her cruel attitude is because she is struggling with her romantic feelings towards Brittany, and subsequently with her lesbian identity.
This storyline has been positively received by critics. Santana and her friends, cheerleaders Quinn Fabray Dianna Agron and Brittany Pierce Heather Morris , join the school glee club , New Directions, because Quinn wants to keep an eye on her boyfriend Finn Hudson Cory Monteith ; cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester Jane Lynch then enlists the three of them to help her destroy the glee club from the inside.
Brittany also reveals in an offhand comment that she and Santana have slept together. When the two are accused of giving Sue the New Directions set list for their first show choir competition, Santana defends herself and admits that she has come to enjoy participating in the club. At Sue’s behest, Santana and Brittany go on a date with Finn, who is now the glee club co-captain.
Finn-Santana Relationship When Rachel sings What I Did for Love, the two are briefly seen sitting together in the background; Santana has her legs draped over Brittany’s lap, and Brittany is get her hands over Santana’s legs and Santana is rubbing Brittany’s back. Brittany then thanks Santana for understanding and Santana strokes her back. Later, they perform a sexually-charged rendition of Me Against The Music during what glee-induced kiss wedding in which they are both having what same fantasy, at the dentist, when they wake up from the fantasy both of them are smiling and giggling.
When Brittany does that they should do a duet by Melissa Etheridge together, Santana refuses, saying that she isn’t in episode with Brittany, and she made out with Brittany only because Puck isn’t around.
Naya Rivera was a powerhouse and her legacy as Santana Lopez on Glee will live on. In Season 3 Episode 11 of Fox’s Glee Jackson , Santana Lopez walks into a room full of Warblers, a rival show-choir group, alone in a black hat and a suit dress to incite a confession for Slushee-ing her friend and teammate. She’s challenged to a show-choir duel of ‘ Smooth Criminal’ Michael Jackson performed to cellos, a palpable, growing tension rises between the two singers that crescendos to the confession and a Slushee at Santana’s face.
This performance is one of the Glee Cast’s top streamed tracks on Spotify. She is survived by her husband and a son aged 4. Her performance as Santana, a strong, Black, Puerto Rican lesbian woman was a breath of fresh air in a show that lost itself in its plots and its quest to showcase Lea Michele’s wafer-thin Rachel Berry character in a positive light. A lot has been written about the problematic and uncomfortable parts of Glee, from its celebration of bullies on-screen and off and normalisation of sketchy student-teacher romance arcs to making light of date rape.
Through all of this, Santana Lopez not only grounded the show and made it a drama we can engage with, but arguably carried the show in the final seasons. Glee , to me, is a show of great significance. I’d watch it as a high school student after school on Star World and it became my safe space. I was deeply invested in The New Directions, the choir that the show follows.
Rachel Berry, a self-absorbed alpha character fixated on a Broadway career, in Season 1 talks of being “part of something special [that] would make her special”. The show choir group would go on to win the National Show Choir Championships in Season 3, overcoming significant hurdles along the way.
