Naya Rivera (as Santana Lopez)

Sanatana Lopez Character Biography

Although she is promoted to head cheerleader when Quinn gets pregnant, Santana is quickly demoted after Sue finds out that she had breast implants over summer break. When it's revealed that she and Brittany enjoy make-out sessions, Santana says that it's only because she needs a substitute while Puck is in juvie. She also convinces Brittany, who is dating Artie, that this is not cheating because "the plumbing's different."

Sue announces her intent to shoot Brittany out of a cannon at the cheerleading championships, and she forces Santana, Brittany, and Quinn to choose the Cheerios or the glee club. The three girls all decide to stay with New Directions.

After another cuddle session with Brittany, they go to substitute teacher Holly Holiday for advice to sort out their feelings for each other. Santana finally confesses to Brittany that she is in love with her, but Brittany says she loves Artie, leaving Santana broken-hearted.

Santana concocts a plan to get Kurt back into the glee club by confronting his harasser, Karofsky, about hiding the fact that he's also gay. She says that if they act as each other's beards and he stops bullying Kurt, she promises not to reveal his secret. The two announce their fake relationship and the formation of the Bully Whips to protect the school from intolerance.
