The music was great especially Adele mash up.  The episode was not.  In fact, as much as I adored Santana s2 I have tired of her tirades and am repulsed by her out right defamation of character.  She has been written to be vicious and horrible.  As much as I don't like that she was outed, I do not feel any sympathy for her.  She was awful to Finn and Rory.  She laughed when she drew blood after dodgeball was over.  I will support a character who wants to be vicious just to hurt others for sport.  Using the excuse she is hurting inside because she is a "coward" to face it.  She insults everyone to the extremes but she was over the line toward Finn in the hallway.  She defamed his manhood, mentality, talent, and his talent abilities being a coat-tail in public for all to hear his insecurities.  He gave her a dose of reality to not be a coward.  I don't hate Finn in the least.  If Santana were a guy Finn would have beat the crap out of him.  But Finn was raised to not hit a girl so he always took her for not what she would say but consider the source thing.  Well, I'm a girl and I'd have slapped Santana to the next state and wouldn't feel any guilt at all.  Santana has never felt any guilt when outing anyone else's issues in public and never apologize either.  Finn had enough of the crap Santana was dishing out and spoke his mind justly too.  But it was in the same hallway as when Santana defamed and embarrassed Finn for all to hear. 

Puck/Shelby storyline is nothing but wrong/creepy/disgusting.  Quinn is crazy still.  Poor writing IMO on all counts.

The thing is that Santana was a bitch to Finn, but Santana's a bitch to everyone so even though the stuff she said was the kind of thing people would ooh and aah about, people would also take it more as a lets just laugh for the sake of laughing as opposed to a serious insult. Whereas Finn took it to a much more personal level, in which he outed a very personal matter that was a secret and despite the way he ended his little tirade, like he was giving her some kind of life lesson, he did it as a way of revenge and because of that it seemed calculated.

So while yes he was provoked and Santana deserved some kind of retribution, he took it too far and was definitely in the wrong and not completely justified in his actions.

NB: Santana was amazing in the adele performance and that bitch slap was perfect

agree with sgleek. I actually like Santana most of the time, but she was ridiculously cruel and vicious in this particular episode and I hate when people use pathetic excuses to justify treating people a certain way. Everyone has problems, everyone has secrets, everyone has issues and troubles, and everyone is human. I can't excuse Santana being a royal bitch to everyone because she's hurting inside...her and everybody else at somepoint in their lives. If you yourself don't play by the rules you should NEVER assume everyone else is supposed to play by them. The fact that she didn't expect Finn to say anything back to her was insulting and equally as vicious. She expected him to take it...and as someone who doesn't get worked up often and lets things roll off my back until I get pushed too far and finally explode...I get that. She took advantage of the fact that he's usually fairly nice and doesn't usually say anything...that was foolish of her. Because he's human and is capable of being pushed too far. Everyone has a breaking point...and that was his. You know what people like Finn get in matters like this? The whole "be the bigger person" mantra. Which has always been a load of bs...something I personally recieve often because you're giving someone else the license to be horrible people w/o being put in their place, while almost punishing the person whose forced to recieve the viciousness.  It was wrong that Finn stated that in the hallways...but it never would have been said if she would have laid off of him. She initiated something and underestimated the repercussions that would come of it...that's on her. Maybe she'll learn something. It's a heck of lesson to learn but she did bring that one on herself. Those who live in glass houses...as the saying goes. Her house was made of fine crystal so she never should have started something assuming that no one else would finish it.  Santana's a bitch to everyone doesn't fly...the fact that she may or may not say things as comic relief doesn't fly either. For every person whose a Santana there is another person who isn't emotionally stable enough to handle her "jokes". A joke to others may not be a joke to someone else. I mean in the age of so many kids committing suicide and doing unthinkable things...you'd think people would realize that. Simply put...never underestimate your opponent. You don't know what other people are going through or the mindset that their in or whether or not your "joke" could be the final straw that breaks the proverbial camel's back. It was a reality check for her...and yes Finn did do it out of retaliation...but who wouldn't have?It doesn't take away from the fact that he spoke truth..it was still a life lesson. Clearly somethings aren't funny. What annoys me is she should have learned this lesson a while ago. It reminded me of how she had the audacity to be crying and upset when Rachel told her that she'd end up swinging on a pole when she was older...was it harsh? Yes...did she push Rachel to the point where Rachel retaliated? yeah. I cannot be mad at Rachel for that. Lesson should have been learned then, but instead Santana got even more vicious. I also hate the fact that if Santana was shredding a girl the way she was shredding Finn, it would be catastrophic.

It's NEVER okay to put your hands on anyone. Double standards are ridiculous.  If he would have smacked her for being a royal Bitch he'd have no sympathies...the same should be said. This is the problem with double standards...they leave too muuch room for wrong behaviour to be excused. Like the fact that people are more outraged by the fact that a gay person is having to deal with being "outed". I still maintained that technically her sexuality wasn't a secret in the school and the true wrongdoers were the adults who made the ad not FInn. But what really sucks here, is that the type of verbal abuse she unleashes on others is ignored because we'd rather focus on her hardships of being a lesbian. IT's reflective in the media as well. How many kids experience bullying to unthinkable levels and get ignored...but now, unfortunately the only time a spotlight is being put on bullying these days is when it's affecting a kid being bullied over their sexuality. What about everyone else? What about all those other voices being ignored because of other reasons? What kind of message does that send. I'm an activist of human rights. I'm for gay rights and civil rights and everything inbetween but it's so wrong to only put a spotlight on gay issues when there are sooo many other issues that need to be discussed along with it. So as a fan of Santana and a fan of Finn...it killed me that after that episode with all the horrible things going on by so many parties they only thing people want to discuss is how horrible it is that Santana got outed. It hurts me to my soul...because so many people got hurt physically,mentally, and emotionally in that episode...but she's the only one that people want to talk about. I hate how we feel the need to focus on one issue at the expense of another. Why does gay bullying have to take precedence over all the other forms of it? Why does abuse of women have to take precedence over abuse of men? Why do missing white kids have to take precedence over missing ethnic kids? I was horrified that Finn said what he said so loudly...but I was equally horrified by Santana's behavior, slapping people and throwing balls at their heads as well. None of it should have been happening. None of it is excusable and if Finn's actions aren't justifiable then you can't justify Santana being a bitch because "that's just the way she is."

 

There are plenty of graves filled with people who died too young because somebody like Santana was just being Santana. I REFUSE to excuse somebody's behavior because it's "just the way they are". The moment we as a society can stop doing that is the day where we can truly prevent school shootings and teen suicides. Period. End of Story.

Glee Quotes

Beiste: Dr. Jones said the new end of world date is September 27, 2014
Brittany: That gives us like two whole years of giving love and brutal honesty to everyone we know.

Will: I hate to say it but I think as long as you keep being yourself, your life is probably going to be a constant string of 'don't belongs'.
Unique: I know. I should probably start getting used to it.
Will: No, no. You should never get used to it. All great changes come from people who refused to get used to what was accepted but wasn't right. Slavery, gay rights, New Coke.
