Okay, I'm not going to even touch on the Quinn/Finn parts of this episode - I'm trying to forget it ever happened. Nor am I going to talk about Will/Holly because regarding their relationship - IDGAF. And (surprise surprise) I won't be talking about Blaine/Kurt even though I found their whole "sexy" talk thing freaking hilarious.
No. I'm going to step away from all that for a bit and talk about my first OTP from Glee - Brittany/Santana. I began shipping them in the first season after this exchange:
Santana: sex isn't dating
Brittany: if it were, Santana and I would be dating
And so it began. I was so excited during the 'Duets' episode because I thought for sure that the two of them would get their shit together and be a couple. Of course, Glee never turns out how we expect/want it to. This episode, 'Sexy', however, blew my mind. Naya Rivera acted her butt off in this, and she had me in tears every time she started crying. I think there were hints of this coming in the 'Blame It on the Alcohol' episode, and I'm so glad they acted on it.
As a bisexual, Glee on occasion annoys the hell out of me. In addition to initially showing Santana and Brittany's relationship as a 'fun on the side' thing and not actually acknowleding any possible lesbianism between the two, they also have a main character (Kurt) take a dig at bisexuals without coming back to the topic or forcing him to admit that what he said was wrong. I like that Brittany in this episode is confused about her sexuality, and how Santana seems to get over her 'gay panic' issues to really be truthful about how she feels.
Landslide was one of the most beautiful Glee performances I've seen, and the third one ever to make me cry (first two were 'To Sir With Love' and 'I Want to Hold Your Hand'). Her confrontation with Brittany in front of the lockers was so brave and I was literally clapping and crying all at the same time while I was watching it. Santana has really grown as a character, and I feel like I can finally tick off one of the points on my glee wishlist - to see some growth and emotion with Santana that doesn't revolve around anger or arrogance.
also, tomorrow I get to go see harry potter. SO EXCITED.
( in which I get a bit carried away with my notes and the caps lock and the squeeing )
