(otherwise known as “No, Santana Lopez did not break up with Brittany Pierce because of smiles exchanged with some random in the library”)
I know you’re all tired. I know you’re all sad. And I know some of you are angry.
You know who else I bet feels exactly the same way right now? Brittana. Our beautiful, brave baby girls who have been through so much together had a decision to make.
Was this decision slightly misguided? Maybe. Were there other alternatives that could have been considered? Maybe.
Whatever the case may be, never doubt that Santana Lopez did what she did out of respect for the love that she shared, and continues to share, with Brittany Pierce.
Let’s look at their “break up” scene and talk about why.
Edit: Because JJ and I are brain twins, I suggest that you also read her analysis of 4x04 as well; we seem to have written these analyses at the same time, and I suspect that there is a lot of overlap in content, as well as JJ elaborating eloquently on some of the points I make here.
