She is afraid of what will happen to her if she does, using Kurt as an example. She states that she only wants to be with Brittany and that she loves her and only her. Brittany tells her she loves her back, but also loves Artie and won't break up with him because it wouldn't be right and it would hurt him. Santana leaves, angry and heartbroken. Later in Celibacy Club, Santana appears even more cynical after the incident and stares sadly at Brittany sitting next to Artie. She finally discovers that she is a lesbian.
Santana's relationship with Brittany is explored a bit more, showing that due to the events in Sexy, she is hurt by the fact that Brittany rejected her for "Stubbles McCripple Pants" (Artie). After deciding that New Directions will perform original songs, Santana says that everyone should have a chance to write an original song for a Regionals contender.

She says that "If you see something you don't like, you should change it," perhaps defending her own breast enhancements. Later she is seen in the corridor looking longingly at Brittany, musing that if she were to become Prom Queen, she might be able to trick Brittany into being with her by making it "law." She hatches a plot to win Prom Queen by having a "popular" guy on her arm, but as Sam walks down the hallway and does an impression of Sean Connery she explains in a voiceover that she doesn't consider Sam popular enough yet. She then notices Karofsky checking out Sam's butt and decides his partnership will win her the crown.Later, at the coffee shop (she is once again staring at Brittany), but listens to Blaine and Kurt's conversation, mentioning Dave. Blaine says that he would be perfectly fine if Kurt were to come back to McKinley, just as long as he was safe. This is when she thinks up her plan then gets up and leaves saying "I gotta gay... GO! Go. I have to go." She decides that the key to winning Prom Queen would be to get Kurt back so she confronts Dave and tells him that she knows he's gay and that she plays on the same team. She decides that she and Dave will be "beards" (using each other as cover to appear heterosexual). She says that this will mean they will "Win Prom King and Queen and rule the school." When he asks "What if I say no?" she blackmails him, saying if he doesn't go along with it, she will tell everyone he's gay. Convinced, Dave tells the New Directions (obviously scripted by Santana) how sorry he is, saying that he's really ashamed of himself and that she made him see what consequences his bullying can have. Santana joins him in front of the rest of the New Directions telling them that she took it upon herself to change Dave and announces that they fell in love in the process, much to everyone's disgust. Santana and her new "beard" then form a new club known as the "Bully Whips," which, as the name says, fights bullying. She later reveals her shirt for the Born This Way number, which says "Bitch." Brittany gives her another shirt saying "Lebanese," but what she really meant was "Lesbian." Santana refuses to wear it, scared of other people's reaction and decides not to perform. Instead she watches from the seats alongside Dave, but wearing the "Lebanese" shirt instead of the one she made.
Brittany calls out Santana in her internet talk-show "Fondue for Two," stating that she plays for "the other team," indicating that she's a lesbian. The next day, "The Muckraker" writes about "a prom queen candidate who spends most of her time in the closet," whom everyone recognizes as Santana. She confronts Brittany, who says that what she meant is that she used to be on the Cheerios, to which Santana retorts that she could of put it differently. Meanwhile, Artie begins to have doubts about nature of Brittany's relationship with Santana and demands the truth from his girlfriend. After Brittany explains why it isn't cheating, Artie tells her that Santana is manipulating her, which Brittany denies, resulting in him to tell her that she's stupid. This hurts Brittany, and she goes to Santana for comfort.She takes her to the music room "to express her feelings for her (Brittany) in private," referring to Brad as "furniture," and following the week's assignment, sings Songbird, being very emotional throughout the whole song. Brittany then asks Santana would it make it easier for her if she "came out" first and invites her to be her guest in "Fondue For Two," where Brittany would ask her to the prom and support her campaign for the prom queen. Santana accepts, but an hour before the show she texts Brittany simply saying "I can't." Later, Jacob asks Santana about the vicious rumor left on their website about her and Karofsky having sex in the back seat of a car parked at the cemetery. After happily refusing to comment, Jacob asks if she would like to make a comment on the fact that he looked up the IP address of the person who posted that rumor, which turned out to be her. Santana states that her computer was stolen, and that her and Dave are going strong and are very excited about the prom king and queen campaign. Jacob finally asks is she in love with Dave, and are they "soulmates," so to speak, which she agrees to. Even though she sounded very certain professing her feelings for Dave, Santana was looking at Brittany (who seemed very disappointed) while answering Jacob's last two (and the most important) questions. As he walks away, the two glance at each other.
Santana decides she will be "the law-and-order prom queen candidate" by loudly and ostentatiously protecting Kurt from anti-gay bullying. At the prom, Santana and the other candidates wait on stage and hope to be crowned Prom Queen. Dave Karofsky wins Prom King, but Santana and the other contestants are shocked when Kurt is elected Queen. Upset over the loss and feeling like an outsider, she tells Brittany that after Nationals, she is going to ditch McKinley High and go live in "a lesbian colony. Or Tribeca." However, she returns to the gym to sing Dancing Queen with Mercedes for Kurt's victory dance.
Santana auditions for a solo at Nationals, singing Back to Black. Jesse comments that she did not have emotion in her singing and Santana replies by shouting back verbal threats, she also said she will go all Lima Heights on him. She argues with Mercedes, Kurt, and Rachel about who will win the solo. She sings backup at Jean's memorial. When the results of the auditions are revealed, Santana does not win the solo, nor does anyone else – instead, Will decides to repeat their winning formula from Regionals and have the group sing original songs. She comments that she sings with a raspy voice because of her cigar smoking.I Love New York/New York, New York while traveling around New York Central Park and Towns Square where, in the song, she attempts to get the attention of a guard. Quinn plans to tell Will that Kurt and Rachel are sneaking out of their hotel rooms to put them out of competition because she doesn't care about "a stupid show choir." Then, Santana and Brittany stop Quinn and calm her down while offering her to get her a haircut. At Nationals, Santana and the rest of New Directions perform Light Up the World. New Directions did not make it to the second round because of the Rachel and Finn kissing after performing Pretending. Out of anger, Santana yelled at Rachel in Spanish while trying to physically attack her but was held back by Quinn, Mike, and Sam. Back at their final days of school, Santana and Brittany talks about the future of New Directions. Before ending their conversation, Brittany tells Santana that she loves her more than anyone in the world and Santana tells Brittany that she is her best friend. Upon finishing their conversation, Santana and Brittany pinky-linked once again and they went to their last glee club meeting of their junior year while hoping for next year to be the best.
The Purple Piano Project, Santana rejoins the Cheerios and, much to her dismay, Sue appoints both her and Becky Jackson as co-captains. She is recruited by Sue in her quest to once again bring down New Directions; however, it is indicated that Santana only went along with this because she is afraid that Sue will tell people that she is a lesbian. She is later kicked out of New Directions by Mr. Schuester, who blames her for setting a purple piano on fire during Blaine's performance of It's Not Unusual (the Cheerios poured lighter fluid on it and it caught on fire when Quinn flicked her cigarette onto it; according to Santana it was an act of political protest) and criticizes her loyalties to the club, telling her to come back when she can be as loyal as the rest of the club. She responds by cooly walking out, saying that maybe she should "take a break."
She is seen helping to hang up Kurt's campaign posters, which were designed by Brittany. When he complains about them, she says that originally, the unicorn was riding him. Kurt walks away and Brittany is sad, thinking she failed her 'unicorn' (a.k.a Kurt). Santana says that the campaign was brilliant and that if Kurt can't see that, then he doesn't deserve to have her as his campaign manager. She then says that there is no one like her, that she's a genius and that she is the unicorn. Santana walks away leaving both of them smiling. It is apparent that they both still have feelings for each other.
She is back in new directions after swearing her (private) allegiance. At booty camp she and Mercedes butt heads and she appears in Mercedes' DreamGirls fantasy and has a solo in It's All Over. In It's All Over she calls Mercedes out for being a slacker and defends Brittany when Mercedes disses her. Later in the episode Santana, with Brittany, confront Kurt and Rachel in the hallway about Kurt running against Brittany. She watches on with Kurt as Brittany sings and dances to Run the World (Girls) and later joins in with vocals. During Fix You, it is seen that she got the part of Anita in McKinley's production of West Side Story. She is last seen smiling with Brittany about the win.
She is seen standing at her locker when Mercedes defecting to Shelby's choir with the argument of her lack of solos. Santana however says she will not leave Brittany and will only go if she goes. Later on Santana and Brittany are seen at Breadstix. Confused about whether they are dating or not she brings it up to Brittany, who says she thought they already were dating. Then when Brittany expresses her beliefs in Rory being a leprechaun she says there is something she's wish for. She tells Brittany about wanting to leave New Directions to join Shelby's choir but will only leave if she follows, Brittany says she'll think about it. Then she reveals another wish would be Brittany holding her hand, so she does. Santana hides it under a napkin. During Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.), Blaine starts dancing with Brittany and Santana pulls her away. When everybody else joins in she sits there frowning. After the performance she expresses how it's all about Rachel and Blaine.Afterwards, Santana approaches Rory about staying away from Brittany and how he's poser so now he get's to grant her a wish. While Rory talks to Brittany he reveals Santana's wish for Brittany to leave New Directions and join Shelby's choir. When Finn approaches Brittany about leaving Santana goes off on him and accuses him of being jealous of Blaine. When she goes to Shelby's choir rehearsal she tells off Sugar and suggest their name be the "Hot Bitches or Hot Messes, but Shelby picks The Troubletones.

The Troubletones win and all (except for Brittany and Mercedes) take cheap shots at Rory, causing his nose to bleed. Later, Santana apologizes for calling Finn names, but it ends up being backhanded. Finn, after having enough, loses it in the hallway and calls Santana a coward, telling her that she is too afraid to come out of the closet and also afraid of being herself.

Kurt wants Santana to wait on telling Rachel about Brody until after her big audition as it will distract her from her goal, which Santana agrees upon only if Kurt gives her extra room. Santana then offers to cheer Rachel up by playing an innocent little prank on Kurt, but when the two girls go in to put his hand in a pot of warm water, they see his little secret. Santana is really shocked. Kurt reluctantly introduces the girls to Bruce and makes it clear that they cannot borrow him. Kurt gives Santana and Rachel their own special pillows and Santana proceeds to tell Rachel that Brody is a gigolo. Santana and Kurt bond over a The Facts of Life marathon while cuddling with their boyfriend/girlfriend pillows when Rachel comes home. She thanks Santana and her third Mexican eye and states that she is ready for her new permanent roommate. Santana smiles at that. Later Santana joins in on Mamma Mia.
Santana entered into the apartment in New York with and old furniture she has found and she says "With a little TLC and three clicks from Kurt's ruby slippers, this bad boy would be salvageable." Rachel interrupts her and then asks her to take a seat and talk to her. She replied by telling her that if they are going to discuss about Rachel's Funny Girl callback, she recommends her best track ever Run, Joey, Run. Rachel and Kurt tell her to try to do something with her life and that Tina told them that she is now a go-go girl. Rachel says that she is the most talented person she had ever known after herself and Kurt. Santana says that she is just trying to figure out what she wants to do with her life. After Kurt finds out that Isabelle wanted some help with the New York City Ballet Gala, he asked Santana and Rachel to help them with that, which Santana refuses at the beginning but then Kurt convinced her by saying she can keep a designed dress from the legendary Vogue.com vault. At the New York City Ballet Gala, Isabelle asked Santana how she feel about Cherry Jones and she says "whatevs." Isabelle tells Kurt and Rachel that they will be seeing the show from the wings with her. She asks Santana if she wants to join them and Kurt says that she doesn't like ballet. But Santana replies that she actually took ballet lessons her grandmother put her in when she was little because her father gets mad about her ´boys attitude´. She only took few lessons but she felt that "she felt safe there, not different" and that "she was part of something beautiful." That's when they started singing At the Ballet. During the performance, they all reminisced how they loved ballet as a child. Then, Santana admitted she loves to dance but she doesn't know what she wanted to do or how to start it. Isabelle advised her that taking baby steps will be okay.In NYADA, Santana comes to class late saying she wants to make an entrance. Her new ballet instructor then told the class that taking ballet extension classes doesn't mean that they can get to NYADA as a real student. She answered back saying the last thing she wants to do is to pay 30 grand to do something that she is a Super Wonder Woman at. The instructor asks her why she is even there. She answered saying that she is there to do some reintroducing with dance. The instructor told the class to start with some Pliés and when Santana is doing them, she imagined her little self doing pliés. The little Santana says "Don't forget me again, okay?" and Santana says "I won't, I promise" and they hugged each other, then Santana said "I've got you now."
In the episode All or Nothing, Santana is first called by Sam, she is seen changing her clothes and wearing a sport bra. Sam asks her for help after a break-up with Brittany to which she seems fine about, but when Sam mentions that Brittany decides not to perform at Regionals, Santana knows something is definitely wrong and Sam asks her for urgent help, for he would help her if she needed any assistance. When Santana returns to Lima, she seems to have light brown highlights in her hair. We see Santana back in Ohio, on Fondue For Two with Brittany and Lord Tubbington. Brittany introduces her as her former "lady lover,"Santana gives to the camera a little smile. During this part you can see the words "Brittana is real" at the botton of the take. Brittany thanks her again for taking the Lima Express all the way from New York City to be there, Santana replies that she actually came to Ohio because she wanted to talk to Brittany, not for doing a show. They start a true or false game and Brittany asks about Kurt and Rachel's activities in NY, but Santana replies that it's false and she wishes they were at least that exciting; after this Santana replies that's enough and turns the camera off. Brittany asks her what is she doing, Santana tells her to stop and asks what is going with her, Brittany is acting like a completely person and that's making her sad. Brittany tells her to get over it. Santana replies that she still cares about her and that she's not being herself. Brittany says that what she is about to tell is going to change everything. Santana can be seen later in the audience as Emma joins Will, Santana commenting on Emma's shirt and the colour of white that she chose, which isn't very lucky apparently, to which Will hints something about their love. Before the New Directions' Regionals performance, Brittany tells to the Glee Club that she has something to say, Santana gives her a sad but understanding look. Brittany tells her about her admission to MIT and start talking about all the people that are in the room. At the end, in tears she goes to Santana and hugs her tighly, she stars sobbing harder and Santana looks like she is holding back tears and tells her she doesn't need to say anything. After all, actions speaks louder than words. Santana is seen cheering Brittany and the New Directions during I Love It. During All or Nothing, Santana wipes her eyes with a tissue, handing it to Kurt, who also does the same. The New Direction's win and Santana, Kurt and Emma applaud the group.
Brittany can be seen walking behind everyone, slowly brushing her hair as the sparks slowly turn off. She faces the audience seats, the auditorium empty. She hears footsteps approach, noticing Santana. Santana reaches out her hand and lifts Brittany and together, they hold each other as they walk out. In the Choir Room, Emma and Will announce their plans to finally marry instead of having the pressure of an actual reception and all that planning. Santana is present during the ceremony, humming the Wedding March during Emma's walk to where Will and the priest is standing. She along with the rest of the group clap and cheer when Emma and Will finally tie the knot.
PersonalitySantana, like Quinn, has been primarily shown to be something of a cheerleading stereotype. Quick to pass judgment and insult and even bully other people, Santana seems to find no issue flaunting her spot on the social ladder that is High School, and is not happy about being made co-captain of the Cheerios together with Becky in season three. However, she refrains from making fun of her disability, but it's unclear if it was due to having some sympathy for Becky or just out of fear of Sue, who had a sister with the same disability she loved very much. At the beginning of series, she acts more like a sidekick to Quinn, following her orders and usually letting her do all the talking. This changes when Quinn is kicked off the Cheerios by Sue due to being pregnant, thus making Santana the head cheerleader. She joins Glee to help Quinn keep an eye on Finn and to spy for Sue. Santana also demonstrates occasional signs of kindness, usually with the Glee Club after a good performance or in her interactions with Brittany. She has admitted that she loves being in Glee Club, and that it is the best part of her day. She follows up this confession with instructions that if anyone asks, they are to say that she hates it, showing that she cares a lot about her image. Still, after believing Glee is over, Santana shows real emotion and cries.
She is extremely emotional at certain times for ridiculous reasons (losing tanning privileges or missing out on the Breadstix passes), and is often comforted by Brittany, who seems to bring out all the best in her. Santana has grown to be a better person through Glee, she actively admits to hating the people in the club before joining but now views them as equals, if not friends. Still, she can be seen as an antagonist because of her mean streak which is mainly displayed in the show, for instance, berating Rachel and other glee club members.Santana gets jealous quite easily, especially when it concerns her sexual partners. She has displayed hostility towards Rachel, Quinn, Mercedes, Lauren and Artie when they are seen to be in a relationship with Puck or Brittany. When Puck sings to Rachel, she is noticeably peeved. When Quinn babysits, shows romantic interest in Puck and states that he actually cares about her, implying that he doesn't care about Santana, she angrily threatens her and tells her to stay away from him. When Mercedes begins dating Puck, they get into a singing battle before their conflict almost gets physical. When Puck begins to show interest in Lauren and sings a song to her, Santana gets into a physical fight with her and threatens her, ending up going to the nurse's office. When Artie and Brittany are together for the first time, she breaks them up when she tells Artie that Brittany is only using him for his voice. However, her threats and plans always backfire as the relationships she attempts to sabotage usually end up growing stronger than ever before, upsetting her even more. It is very possible that she does this because she is simply lonely, which is why she wants to show off her image and reputation. Though she wants Finn to let out that they slept together (even if it means that Rachel might break up with Finn), she is seen during the wedding reception with an unrecognizable look on her face. In another case, when the glee girls (except Mercedes) have a meeting over Kurt's situation with Karofsky, Santana is annoyed that they had a meeting without her. Even after finding out what it was about, Santana is genuinely hurt, but hides it with her "mean girl" attitude.
Santana acts confident but it has been proven on few occasions she's actually insecure, like when she got a boob job over the summer so people would notice her more. She gets incredibly hostile when her weaknesses are exposed, examples including attacking Quinn in the hall for telling Sue about her "summer surgery" and having Santana knocked down to the bottom of the pyramid. It's also been shown that while she has no problem insulting and putting down others, she can "dish it out but can't take it," and gets upset when the glee club members turn on her, showing she cares a lot about what people think of her.
In Sexy she admits that she acts like a bitch all the time because she's angry due to the fact that she has so many feelings for Brittany that confuse her and she doesn't deal with because she's afraid of dealing with the consequences. These feelings also scare her because she's afraid of the looks, the talks, and what people will say about her behind her back if she comes out. There initially was confusion over whether Santana is bisexual or a lesbian. Naya Rivera said that Santana was bisexual, but it was not an official statement. In Sexy, Santana says that she's attracted to both girls and guys. Later in the episode, she confesses that she has no interest in Finn/Sam/Puck, and that she loves only Brittany. But after Brittany refuses to dump Artie (just a "stupid boy," according to Santana), Santana disparages her for her relative sexual fluidity. Santana remains in a relationship with Sam, however the two immediately join the Celibacy Club, indicating Santana has realized that she doesn't genuinely want to have sex with men. Brad Falchuk later stated that Santana is indeed a lesbian; she realized it for the first time in Sexy, and is struggling to accept it in subsequent episodes. By Season Three, she becomes a much nicer and caring person and even becomes friends with her old enemy, Rachel.
In Season Four, Santana seems much more caring and compassionate towards people. This is shown in Thanksgiving when she's assigned as Marley's mentor. At the end of Come See About Me, Marley looks very uncomfortable, so Santana asks her if she's okay because she looks like she's about to vomit. Santana also finds laxatives in Marley's bag and demands an explanation from Marley, showing that she cares about her. She then confronts Quinn, who is Kitty's mentor, about it because she is certain that it's Kitty who gave Marley the laxatives. When Marley faints at Sectionals Santana is shown pointing to the stage in concern. Also, in Girls (and Boys) on Film Santana confronts Rachel about the pregnancy test that she found in the bathroom. Rachel breaks down in Santana's arms about it, to which Santana looks extremely concerned as she comforts a sobbing Rachel.
SexualitySantana describes herself as a "closeted lesbian" in Born This Way. She is seen to be something of a nymphet in the first two seasons. She has dated and slept with many guys, but has also had sex with Brittany on what is implied to have been multiple occasions as shown in the episode Duets she said to Brittany that making out was a "nice break from all that scissoring." It seems, however, that she is either afraid or embarrassed by her same-sex attractions, when she tells Brittany that she isn't making out with her because she is in love with her, even though Brittany said nothing of the sort. It would make sense in the context, though, because Brittany had proposed a duet by famous out singer Melissa Etheridge. In addition to her relationship with Brittany, Santana's sexuality is addressed in the fifteenth episode of season Two, Sexy, after Holly Holliday returns to McKinley as a Sex Ed teacher. She says she "doesn't know" when she is asked if she thinks she might be a lesbian, but admits having been attracted to both men and women in the past. Santana, after asking Holly Holliday help to express her feelings through a song, finally admits to being in love with Brittany, and though Brittany admits to loving her back, she can't bring herself to break up with Artie - who she also loves - to be with Santana. After the song, and deeply considering her feelings for Brittany, she explicitly compared her situation with Kurt's, tells Brittany "I don't want to be with Sam, or Finn, or any of those other guys; I just want you!," refers to Artie as "just a stupid boy," and makes a disparaging remark about Brittany's evident sexual fluidity, leading some fans and commentators to believe she is a lesbian which was later confirmed at Paley Fest 2011. Brad Falchuk was quoted as saying in upcoming episodes regarding Brittana, they want "Santana to come to grips with being a lesbian and how she deals with it." They will "explore Brittana as individuals but it will definitely come back to Brittana." Falchuk added. "We want to make sure everybody is included. Santana is a lesbian. She might not be ready to come out yet, but she is." In Born This Way during a voiceover Santana admits that she is a closeted lesbian, and later tells Dave Karofsky that they play on the same team. When Brittany gave her a shirt she made her for the Born This Way number that said "Lebanese"(supposed to say lesbian), Santana tells Brittany that she can't tell anyone about it and doesn't perform in the number. But, she is later seen in the audience wearing the "Lebanese" shirt. The "lesbian" storyline continues into the third season, and leads to Santana being pushed out of the closet by Finn. She fully admits to it and even tells her parents that she is a lesbian.

Santana was presented as more or less a side-kick to Quinn in the Pilot, since then they've maintained a frenemy-relationship, but ended up sleeping with each other twice in I Do because Quinn had always wondered what it would be like to be with a woman, although she isn't lesbian.
