Did You Know?


According to internet rumors, "Mine" by Taylor Swift was written about a flirtation she had with Cory Monteith, who plays Finn. See more »


Santana Lopez: [to Brittany] Let's just do the mature thing here. This is not an official break up, but let's just be honest that long distance relationships are almost impossible to maintain because both people are rarely getting what they need especially at our age.
Brittany S. Pierce: This sounds a lot like a break up to me.

enough breakups
5 September 2015 | by subwmnSee all my reviews

is there any couple who did not break up in this show? Santana, Brittany, Kurt, Blaine, Finn, Rachel. They all broke up, except Shue and Pillsbury. Kurt and Blaine were one of the last I expected. All tried to keep their relationships going, except Finchel. He broke it off by getting her a train ticket for NY and going into the military. It was the wrong thing to do. He expected her to wait for him, but cutting off all contact with her doesn't help. He pushed her go, then steps back into her life unannounced, thinking that she remains faithful. They need the other for support, but he cut contact. he did not let Kurt know anything. That is open season for Rachel.It is what he wanted, not her and gets peeved that she is with another man. Hopefully they will get back together for a few episodes.
