“Excuse me, “Sick of drama,” but I don’t understand how Brittany having a storyline and Brittana are mutually exclusive. That’s a false dichotomy. Brittany should have a storyline about finding her own “inner unicorn” (i.e. self-worth) in the midst of all of these disappointments, Santana should have a storyline about finding herself outside of the safety and power of WMHS and the choir room (build her future), and Brittana should have a storyline about working themselves back to their relationship, and then how to handle their new adult roles and their relationship at the same time. It’s not that hard; RIB seriously needs to reevaluate what viewers want to see though. I’m already tired of the 2.0 characters and the time they take away from the characters we want to see. Brittana are background, but they don’t have to be.”

Amen. I copy and pasted the whole thing because it is EXACTLY what I was thinking. Also, I second all of the opinions that Blaine cheating was totally out of character. Blaine wouldn’t do that and, in all fairness, there were enough cracks in the relationship for Klaine to break up WITHOUT the cheating storyline. However, as hard core a Brittana shipper as I am, I will never hate watching Rachel and Finn. Lea Michele is too talented to take your eyes off of. And Finn IS a man. I am proud of him for the way he tried to handle the Rachel situation at the end of last season and I’m proud of Rachel for the way she’s handling it now. Growth. That’s what our characters are doing. And honestly, I think the real problem with the show is that episodes are only 45 minutes long. Maybe, if each episode was 90 minutes or so, I would be significantly happier and the writers wouldn’t have to be so ruthless when editing both their episode drafts and the show.

klaine, they have too much love to throw away. and it’s stupid that they split when they have the biggest fandom along with brittana and I just felt like blaine was so ooc and I hate how they went down this road when there relationship was so mature, I thought the brittana one was weird too but I don’t ship them simply because brittany annoys me and there relationship was built on sex. any way if klaine don’t reunite it will be unrealistic and stupid because I can guarantee people will stop watching, RIB often forget most viewers watch because of there respective couples

klaine, I thought there story was ridiculous and un-needed, they could of gone so many different ways if they must of broken up but the writers were lazy, I mean who cheats after being apart for 3 weeks. especially considering how mature there relationship was, and there story isn’t over yet/

I don’t even ship Brittana that much (but I’m glad they’re a thing because yay queer representation!), but their break up made no sense. “Oh, I glanced at another girl, better break up!” what. This episode was so stupid. Glee has never been a realistic show, but no way I can consider it “good writing” when ALL the couples have problems at the same time. And Klaine had the worst storyline of them all. Blaine cheating? Yes because that’s so in character, right? Glad they threw my favorite character under a bus for this. I’m just so sick of Glee and the things these writers do just to get attention and regain viewers.

Brittana breaking up made no sense to me! They are super in love and I know Santana was trying to do the right thing when she felt she was straying, but really! Brittana is the most mature and pure love! However, I have confidence that they will get back together..

Only Finchel is OFFICIALLY broken up (Rachel: “We’re done.”). Santana said to Brittany “this is not an official breakup” and Klaine said to Finn, “I don’t even know if we’re broken up.” However, I DON’T think that Klaine will make it, but I have faith that Brittana will eventually get back together. Much as I loathe Ryan Murphy at this moment in time, I do think that this guarantees viewers for 4×05. (Or maybe they’re all dead, I don’t know.)

Klaine did NOT break up!!!!! They fought, but Blaine distinctly says “I don’t even know if we’re broken up.” THERE WAS NO CONFIRMATION. SO sick of hearing people make this mistake.

Klaine and Brittana. They are the most mature relationships on the show and I think what they wrote for Blaine this episode was completely ooc; he got so upset with Kurt flirting with some other guy, I hardly find it realistic that he would then go and hook up with some random.
And Finchel can just gtfo tbh. Finchel last season was just a joke and they’ve had three seasons all to themselves already.

Now that i think about, you guys are right, there was no reason for brittana to break up. well i voted for klaine because i don’t care what happens they are and always will be my otp. just wondering what blaine really did with that guy. (also, what a repetitive and unoriginal storyline), but come on everyone will get back together. i dunno, i only care about the gays.

Santana & Britt. Finchel is just over and done, for the 100th time, Klaine cheated.. Brittana has the purest love and is the most mature relationship out of all three. Them breaking up would make no sense.

Santana and Brittany. There was no reason for the break up. Some LDR can work. I have confidence they will get back together though.

Santana and Britt, we’re always getting the short end of the stick. We barely saw them last season, and they have already broken up? Not buying songs anymore, I’m tired of how we are treated.

Sick of drama

Posted at 11:41 PM on October 4, 2012  

Why is all tv turning into which show can top the other on sadness and loss? Tv is supposed to be a fun escape at the end of a long day. Now it’s all break ups on glee and how I met your mother, death on greys and private practice, even on Grimm they took away Juliette’s memory. Come on. A show called glee should be happy and fun. I get that you need some drama but did they really have to break up 3 out of 4 couples? And seriously the Blaine they have portrayed on this show for the last 2 seasons would never cheat on Kurt so how are we supposed to find it believable that he would go hook up with some random guy? I can see Rachel and Finn breaking up like this as its believable that he is lost and she knows for sure who she is because that’s who they have always been they didn’t change into new people overnight. Santana and Brittany was a nice moment but really does anyone care? They were never a main couple they are a background couple like Tina and mike. And will and Emma will be fine. That’s a normal fight for a couple who are almost married. They are mature enough to get through it and stay together. But anyways, let’s get back to the fun of glee! No more depressing episodes and storylines. Let’s just have some happy silly fun for a change!

They may have a large Fan base but my comment was made as a reference to how much airtime they get. They have been a background couple for all of season 3 they have had little to none in the way of a storyline for the whole season so them breaking up really doesn’t affect the storyline other then in a good way for Brittany fans since it will give Brittany a bigger role this season since Santana is gone away. Keeping them together just puts Brittany further in the background this at least gives her a chance to have a bigger storyline.
