Cover your eyes, Brittana fans. And plug your ears. This can’t be happening. This can’t be happening.
Not only has Brittany (Heather Morris) seemingly forgotten her past relationship and dived headfirst into dating Sam (Chord Overstreet), but we learned during tonight’s episode that Santana (Naya Rivera) has moved on as well.
Santana returned to McKinley to give a powerhouse performance of “Nutbush City Limits” during Season 4, Episode 13: “Diva,” accompanied by a squad of her Univeristy of Louisville cheerleading teammates.
And at the end of the song, Santana proudly told the class — in particular, Brittany — that she and one of the cheerleaders were officially an item. Santana’s new GF’s name is Elaine. She’s brunette, smokin’ hot, out and proud, and loves to read AfterEllen.
Wait, so she’s brunette and she loves to read? Sounds like the anti-Britt to us. There's just one catch: Santana and Elaine aren't actually dating! As Brittany later reveals to Santana, Elaine told her that the relationship is fake: nothing more than a ploy to make make Britt jealous.
So take a deep breath, guys. This isn't actually happening. We repeat: It's not actually happening.
