Hey, JJ! I can't remember if you've answered this before: what do you think Santana is referring to when she says she's made a terrible mistake? The break-up? Or something else? Thanks, Hon! Bai! <3, mcm

I’ve always interpreted that line as Santana saying that she’s made a huge mistake in thinking she can run away from her problems in New York forever—hence why she then shows Brittany the return tickets for their trip and asks Brittany to move in with her.
The way I read it, Santana was trying to be cute about the reveal—i.e., she probably had a little speech planned or something—but then Brittany’s panic threw her off, so she had to recalculate and cut to the chase faster.
The day Santana Lopez can get through one of her ridiculous rehearsed speeches to Brittany Pierce without having to move off-script will be quite a day indeed.
I don’t think Santana meant to reference the breakup at all. She just wanted to lead into asking Brittany to move in with her, and, in her typically inept, mousy way, she futzed it up.
But all’s well that ends well, right?
Thanks for the question, darlin’!
