It seems for awhile like Glee will stop pursuing the love story between Brittany and Santana. Thankfully, that is not the case in "Pot O' Gold." They are out on a date at Breadsticks (of course), and Santana really opens up about her feelings. While less committal, Brittany seems to return those emotions. They make a cute couple, and as long as Brittany really digs girls, which it appears she does (as well as guys), then they can really work. With other love interests removed, there is no reason why the two cannot be together.
Which makes their triumphant "Candyman," with Mercedes (Amber Riley), so thrilling. They are happy together, mixed only with a little sadness about leaving the New Directions. This girl-power group is formidable, which is apparent not only to the members, but also Shelby, Will, and Finn.
The only weakness here is that Sugar Motta (Vanessa Lengies) steps aside a bit too easily from headlining the group. If she really has conviction about her talent, as she claims she does, she wouldn't give up so easily. Now it seems like her character is brought in only as convenience to get a second group going, and bring Shelby back. Which might be worth it, anyway.
Don't miss Glee, Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on FOX.
