So this analysis comes to you in response to a question for Anonymous, who Asks:
“I’m not sure whether you’ve already discussed this previously, but I was wondering what your analysis of the party scene in ‘Blame It On The Alcohol’ would be? Specifically, when they’re playing Spin the Bottle and Santana doesn’t participate in the game. I found it odd that everyone else was part of the circle to play and Santana chose instead to stay on the sidelines. Just wondering your thoughts on this. Thanks :)”
1. Because she has nothing to gain from playing the game socially.
2. Because she wants to avoid revealing the true nature of her attraction to and feelings for Brittany through intimate gesture.
3. Because the whole party situation stresses her and when Santana feels particularly stressed, she tends to withdraw.
Long-ass answer? Under the cut.
